TaylorMade r7 CGB MAX irons
TaylorMade vowed to make the new r7 CGB MAX family of clubs to be the very best game-improvement equipment that money can buy, and the iron lives up to that promise. The extremely large head is optimally weighted with the help of visible tungsten weights that increase MOI for greater stability and forgiveness. The topline is hollow and the saved weight is used to move the CG deep into the clubhead to make it incredibly easy to launch the ball on a towering, distance-enhancing flight. Clubhead speed is dramatically boosted by the incorporation of SuperFast Technology, which includes the ultra-light shaft and the thin, flexible and fast clubface (thinner than the previous r7 CGB MAX model). There's also TaylorMade's Inverted Cone Technology, visible on the back of the face, to promote high ball speed on off-center hits. Finally, there's a new back-cavity badge that contributes to the clubhead's great feel.

When you add up all of the features and technologies you get the longest iron in the TaylorMade iron line, as well as the most forgiving. If this iron were any easier to hit it would swing itself. Moreover, the r7 CGB MAX wears its multiple technologies beautifully, meaning it looks the part of a highly technical, highly hittable iron and boasts a unique and eye-appealing look that successfully blends its high-tech leanings with power and with grace.

r7 CGB MAX irons are available in 3- through 9-, pitching wedge, attack wedge, sand wedge and lob wedge. Left-handed available (except for lob wedge). Women's right-handed r7 CGB MAX irons are available in right-handed only, 4- through 9-, pitching wedge and sand wedge. Availability begins at TaylorMade's retail partners starting on October 30, 2007, at a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $172 per club with steel shaft, $195 per club with graphite shaft.
