T-MB players

David M

I've played these irons with SteelFibre 120cw shafts for all of 2017. I honestly believe they have changed my game. High, straight, crisp irons have brought my index down to a 4.3 (up from that now), helped me win my flight in a few tournaments, etc. I love these irons....

...except for one thing. I cannot work them right to left or left to right. My belief is the same thing (tungsten weight) that helps get the ball up---keeps the face square at impact.

Does anyone else have this issue? I am probably going to go to a 716 or 718MB in my 7-8-9-PW. I know I can work those.

    I've had the 6&5i in the 716 T-MB along with my 716CB and I love the T-MB acting like a hybrid. I've also had some great luck with them with some work. Like you, I've won a club champ event in my level and placed 2nd a few times on other events. But I'm able to work the T-MB both ways.

    My body is changing up and down in short period of time, and now it looks like I've outgrown the Nippon Shaft Zelos 7 regular at age 60. I never thought I'd be recommended a slightly stiffer shaft by my fitter whom we had gone over 3 times. The Project X LZ 5.5 was best fit for me each time (over two and a half months) which I'll be having done next week.

    If anything, I hope this info helps.

    ...a year and a half, I meant.

    Can't say I have this problem. Although I will say that, working the ball right to left, it seems a little harder to hit a high, strong draw. Not sure why. That being said, I've come to love hitting baby draws, baby fades and a lot more straighter shots. I've played 3-W since fall of '15 and just love the clubs.

    I have the 716 TMB 2-5iron and love them, although I'm well able to work (or should I say miss!!) them both ways! I would love to just be able to hit them straight. haha.

    Thanks all. It is certainly more of an issue drawing them than fading them.

    Switch shafts for me did the trick, i play KBS exclusively any more. They not only add to already crazy ball flight the T-MB provides but they also seem to add much more control when trying to shape shots. I hope that helps.
