2009 TaylorMade Burner Irons

2009 TaylorMade Burner Irons TaylorMade Burners are best known for their longer distance and the 2009 edition TaylorMade Burner Irons are no exception. The team at TaylorMade re-engineered the previous model Burners and made substantial changes to create the new 2009 models.

The new Burner irons distinguish themselves from last year's with more distinct distance gaps between the short, long and middle irons. The irons were designed so you get long and forgiving long-irons (larger heads, wider soles, longer shafts), long and accurate middle irons (mid-size heads and soles, longer shafts) and accurate and responsive short irons (thinner toplines, narrower sole, longer shafts). Though even the 'thinner topline' (see pic below) short irons were quite thick by my used-to-blades standards, but for game improvement clubs, they could certainly be termed 'thin'.

2009 TaylorMade Burner Irons Not left out are TaylorMade's other innovations, like their Superfast Technology that promotes faster swing speeds, Inverted Cone Technology to expand their Coefficient of Restitution (COR) and their Multi Functional Sole, which help increase playability from a variety of lies.

I would just have to say the graphics on the clubface would split opinion, with some saying they look good while others saying they are too loud. Personally, I think the Burners look fantastic but a little restraint with the paintbrush would have been good too. But as always, the only test of a club's worth is on the course, so off I went the next day with the 2009 TaylorMade Burner Irons in tow.

As it says on the figurative tin, the Burners hit long. Easily longer than any comparative iron I know out there. The long irons are very easy to hit. Going through the set, the mid-irons retain the design characteristics that make the long irons forgiving - but on a smaller scale. By the time you get to the short irons, the clubs are much more compact, yet very forgiving and very accurate. Those that point out the Burners are long merely due to the longer shafts and stronger lofts, other manufacturers have gone the same route but failed to emulate the Burner's accuracy, as well as comfort. Granted, I found it hard to shape my shots other than straight, but for the players these clubs are targeted to, these clubs make great sense.

To sum it up, the 2009 TaylorMade Burner Irons are a sound choice for high to mid-handicappers looking to add more distance to their game yet still allowing them to achieve consistency and accuracy for improved scores.

Player's feedback and comments

I purchased these clubs after using and loving the R7's...these clubs put the R7's to shame in not only distance but more important workability and solidness (yes I made up that word) If you want a club that will make you better...then purchase these.

Purchased the 4-AW in stiff steel shafts this year, and wow have they made a difference to my game! I had previously played the Nike CPRs in reg steel. I demo'd X-22s, CG7s, and some Mizunos. The Burners were far and away the choice. These irons for me were almost 20 yards longer for each club. I was hitting my old 8 iron 140ish, now I can squeeze it out to 160. I feel like I actually hit my irons the normal man distnace, if that makes any sense. Literally shortened the whole golf course, and increased confidence. I put my old 4 and 5 hybrids in the garage, and now hit the 4-5 irons. These are a heavy club, which I love, they feel like they will just drop into the slot. The face is so hot and forgiving, you will feel like you can't miss. You search is over! (12 handicap - 33 yrs old)

I bought this set as my first "real" set of golf clubs after 6 years of low dollar clubs or hand me downs. I tested all brands for weeks until I fell for the burners. The technology of these clubs is phenominal! Your distances remin true and accurate with a crisp feel to every shot. The A-wedge (attack mode) is the best club to clean up the short shots. 4 iron takes a little learning but with a 5 iron going around 200, I'm not complaining.
