M CGB irons headrer

“The CGB name is iconic and represents some of the longest and most forgiving irons we’ve ever created at TaylorMade. The concept has now been re-created with all our latest technology to bring never-before-seen performance to golfers of all skill levels.”

Tomo Bystedt, Senior Director, Iron Product Creation

Recent launches of TaylorMade irons, like the P790, P770, and P750 Tour Proto, have focused on the better players. TaylorMade addresses the other end of the spectrum, releasing the Super Game-Improvement TaylorMade M CGB irons. We look behind the “curtain” at what the wizards at TaylorMade use to create a “bag full of drivers.”

TaylorMade M CGB Irons Technology

The legal limit for COR (energy transfer at impact) for drivers is 0.830. TaylorMade pushes this limit, giving every club through the PW a COR of at least 0.810! It starts with club faces that are under 2mm thick, allowing maximum flex at impact. The familiar face slot and speed pocket technology increase ball speed on shots hit across the face and further help achieve high COR. The slots and pocket aren’t just in the long M CGB irons, as in past irons. Designers put them in all of the irons.

Launch and Speed

M CGB irons have an ultra-low CG placement to launch the ball high. Four high-density tungsten weights on the back of the club help with the CG placement. The weights make the M CGB irons more forgiving too. Their location towards the heel and toe of the iron increases the MOI, reducing distance loss on mishits.

The fluted hosel from other M series irons is also found on the M CGB irons. The aerodynamic notches reduce drag as you swing, helping you swing faster. More importantly, weight is taken out to make the notches and put around the club head. The repositioned weight improves the CG location and helps raise the MOI (forgiveness) results in extreme forgiveness on off-center hits.

Feel and Sound

TaylorMade uses a stiff, 3-D sound badge and soft Hybar on the back of the club to dampen sound and vibrations. Combine these elements with a “Geocoustic” head shape and you get solid sound and feel at impact. As a reminder, TaylorMade introduced “Geocoustic” technology in the M2 woods. Designers precisely make the head shape to deliver a pleasing sound when you hit the ball.

Will M CGB irons make it in your bag?

M CGB irons are full of the most up-to-date technology TaylorMade has, giving consumers an incredibly easy-hitting club that flies high and lands softly. Golfers that need or want a club that can help them play better should definitely consider the M CGB irons.
