Taylor Made claims their new R9 burner irons are the hottest technology in golf. Media ace Jamie McWilliams puts them to the test, going head to head with his Callaway irons.

5 years later…. still loving the heck out of my burners

Ryan Gault says:

Thanks for the reply. I finally decided I’m going to go with the Burner
irons. I have an appt at the Taylor Made Performance Lab next month. I
can’t wait.

Ben Blackshaw says:

yeah i guess, but my point was that high handicappers would find it

brendan Ladd says:

what did he do to deserve that you ignorant faggot, he does know a decent
amount about clubs and i guarantee you don’t know shit compared to him

I thought these clubs were solid, but not in my top two. He compares these
to Callaway, but Callaway makes the worst clubs in the business. I tested
all these clubs in this class. Mizuno is the way to go imo. I also think
the Titleist A 1,2’s are far superior to Taylor’s comparable clubs.
Basically from my personal standpoint I think Mizuno and Titleist are the
best. I wouldn’t piss on a Callaway if it was on fire.

They gave you a free set, so you switched

beerzie08 says:

No duh the 4 iron goes ten yards farther. The burner 4 iron is longer not
to mention 2 degrees less than the steelheads

David Schultz says:

Funny thing about “hitting the irons longer”… When they make the shafts
longer and strengthen the lofts like they do and just stamp a 7 on what is
really a 6 for other companies, it makes it HARDER to hit. Less loft =
increased sidespin = increased chance for misses. You’ve still got to make
a nice inside pass and hit the center of the face. Good marketing though,
the increased distance thing.

John Di Domenico says:

This was great, really informative and enjoyable to watch. Keep them coming!

EVH4President09 says:

how would you even compare callaway steelheads to taylormade burners

Jamie McWilliams says:

I play the Taylor Made irons about half the time. The shaft is slightly
stiffer than my Callaway irons, so under pressure my timing is slightly
different. Next month when I return to Florida and have full range access I
plan on making the switch full time, to gain the distance benefits.

gbvoul says:

Higher trajectory = more wind interference

andrianc3g says:

I still love my X-14s and have no real reason to change. They are an
excellent standard in quality irons, and are extremely forgiving. However,
I love my Burner TP and Rescue too. Play with what works.

Wally Ray says:

Excellent review. Thank you…. On a side note, anyone who leaves a
negative review of this video has mental problems.

jennyaston1 says:

Interesting information.

nikond90prophoto says:

but if you were a low handicapper and hit the SS 89% of the time then you
would get used to it wouldn’t you?

Jamie McWilliams says:

I have just posted a review of the Burner 2 irons, and that should answer
your questions about them. Jamie

kidwithbrownhair says:

its true i went from hitting a 4 iron 200 yards to about 210 and a 7 iron
from 160 to 170-175.

Jamie McWilliams says:

I have hit both the Diable driver and Razr X irons at the PGA Demo day and
Golfest in Tampa. The equipment is excellent. I have a Razr 2 hybrid in my
bag at this time. If you hit the sweet spot of any brand name equipment,
you will have great results. What I love about the Burner 2 irons is the
soft feel and added distance with the irons because of the technology…I’m
gettin’ older and a little long in the tooth! Make sure to take a look at
the Burner 2 review. Jamie

michiganfan725 says:

you did a great job of listing both pros and cons. this is a very unbiased

bullpuckee says:

which kind of balls did you use when using the irons? did the balls make a
difference on top of the clubs?

John Hunter says:

Love my burners I’m driving 250 vs my old pings that were only going about
180 big difference

Jamie McWilliams says:

Make sure to see the Burner 2 Iron review on how TM Golf has improved the
product. Jamie

speedmagnet24 says:

says the man that knows taylor made is watching lol nice video.. I thought
they were for better shots on off center hits ? the 15 yard sweet spot
scares me

snillsieguy33 says:

the lofts are stronger, but these irons are great

Allen Connor says:

Great review! I’m 18 and just got fitted for these Taylormade Burner irons.
I tested the 8 and 6 irons my swing with the 8 iron was 88 mph and went 163

Ben Blackshaw says:

The ball flying 15 yards further for a sweet spot hit is not good… image
you’re 100 from the pin and water over the back, you hit the sweet spot and
you’re going for a swim. Well, i guess it’s only a bad thing if you are a
high handicapper that only hits the SS a few times every round.

HLGBeachedWhales says:

I want to make love with these clubs

BuccaneersTalib says:

@Yamaha519VX says the guy watching a golf video……

snillsieguy33 says:

@fade7foul yeah the lofts are stronger but the burner irons are incredibley
easy to hit with still some workability….if you needa work tthe ball that
much you shouldnt give a SHlT about this video. the marketing is tricky but
still excellent clubs

Alps P says:

Yamaha yur mamma

EVH4President09 says:

um i didn’t even know that they made diablo irons but the callaway x-22’s
are really good i would say they might even be a little better than the
burners as for the ft they have a bigger price tag thats it so if ur a
callaway guy i would go with the x-22

X2Parker2X says:

i want these now

Tony Egan says:

Their more workable. I play forged cavity back titleist 695’s much better
then my old deep cavity offset nike sumo irons.
