About this product
- DescriptionGreat Grip and Easy Hitting for the Higher HandicapperGolfing is a relaxing sport, but it is deceptively intense and unforgiving to the human body. Enter the TaylorMade golf club. While this lightweight golf club set is a good choice for every type of golfer, it is especially suited to older sportsmen and women as well as those with joint pain. The TaylorMade Burner 2.0 Iron Set addresses the needs of golfers who want to lower their handicap safely.The TaylorMade golf club set is engineered to maintain the center of gravity through each swing, enabling easy launch with appropriate weight distribution and ensuring a higher, more powerful ball flight with increased ball speed and distance. There are several versions of the shaft, the two most popular being the stock lightweight steel shaft and the stiffer graphite shaft. Both versions of this golf club set have very long clubs, which may be initially intimidating to golfers who are not used to swinging with them. The added length, however, is great for higher handicappers because the shafts are still light and create a good bite on the greens. The shafts are also straighter and end in stronger, decreased lofts, making them easy to hit. Lightweight and ComfortableAn investment-cast maximum-perimeter weighted iron, the stock lightweight steel shaft available in a TaylorMade golf club is built for distance. The greater distance is such that some high-handicap players report being able to fly shots past pin high consistently, and sometimes over the green.The stiff graphite shafts available with the TaylorMade Burner 2.0 Iron Set also provide greater distance and are engineered to reduce the shock transmitted through the shaft into the hands and shoulders, making the set a perfect choice for golfers who want power but not pain.The pitching wedge in this lightweight golf club set has a one-degree stronger loft than what is usually on the market, allowing for consistent drops in putting scores. The attack wedge provides the golfer with a nice, easy swing. There are some slight differences with either version of the TaylorMade golf club set; the club heads are larger than many other sets and the irons are thicker. The club head does carry a wider sweet spot because of this, making it easier to work the ball.The Learning CurveWith the lighter weight of the shafts, it may take time for the impatient handicapper to adjust his or her timing at impact. With the graphite shafts, a golfer may also see a looser shot dispersion. However, the shafts do create a higher trajectory with a solid feel. The stock grips of the graphite shafts of the TaylorMade Burner 2.0 Iron set are a little small in diameter, so those with longer fingers may want to re-grip.Swinging AwayAnyone wanting to lower his or her handicap without risking joint damage will find both versions of the TaylorMade Burner 2.0 Iron Set easy to hit and an excellent means of compensating for lost distance. For that reason, the TaylorMade golf club is ideal for older golfers as well as younger ones who have not reached peak physical condition.In addition, golfers who have bad backs will appreciate the lightness of the golf club set and the effortless manner in which the clubs can be put to good use. Graphite by nature transfers force to whatever is being hit and in this case results in long, straight hits, even when the balls are not struck at an ideal angle. The forgiving nature of the irons in this lightweight golf club set creates a very pleasant golfing experience, and the longer-than-average length of the shafts will suit most golfers.For the novice golfer, this set provides a great starting point, while for the more experienced golfer, the TaylorMade Burner 2.0 Iron Set is the perfect way to enhance an already successful game. With record ratings on golf sites and the renowned eBay platform, a TaylorMade golf club is an essential tool for golfers regardless of their level of experience.

These irons are great. They are a 1 1/2 clubs longer than my previous titliest irons. They are very forgiving and have a tremendous feel at contact. I would absolutely recommend.

PROS PLAYABILITY: Short irons can be manipulated to hit shots high or low; rounded soles are nimble enough to pick balls off tight lies, soft fairways or sand. ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: Several testers believe shots hardly waver in flight (little sidespin) and go where you aim. DISTANCE CONTROL: Well-struck shots produce expected, repeatable distances; shorter hitters receive a boost from lighter shafts and lively face. FEEL: Center hits provide a soft, compressed, almost weightless feel. LOOK: Thick topline says easy to hit; single white groove on bottom of clubface aids alignment while red and white diagrams on grip assist, too. CONS Lightweight graphite shafts feel too light and flexible for some testers; many testers experience little workability left or right throughout set. From Sports Illustrated Golf+ (February 7, 2011) The irons were engineered to deliver legendary Burner distance and more playability, and refinements to the Burner 2.0 vibration-management system improve sound and feel. From Golf Magazine (December 2010) The current Burner iron is widely known as a big-hitting iron, due in part to stronger lofts and longer shafts (particularly in long irons) than other models. Now comes Burner 2.0 to take its place. These new sticks incorporate several subtle performance enhancements into the same spec package (lofts and shaft length) as the original. For instance, the set has a distinct size progression—long irons have the largest heads, thickest toplines and widest soles; more compact short irons have the narrowest toplines and sole widths. Thinner clubfaces (up to 5 percent) than in Burner irons deliver faster ball speed—and higher flight—for added distance. Recessed areas along the heel and toe are intended to reduce turf drag for crisper contact. Look for Burner 2.0 to gain its own loyal following based on overall distance output, reliable directional control and improved feel.

Finish scracthes easy if you hit on the toe.
I was an avid golfer up in till five years ago, had major foot problems. This August I decided to start playing again. Ibought a very used set of Cleveand TA7's senior shaft due to age and the foot just to see how I would do. After finding out I could play again I bought a set of the Burner 2.0 senior shaft. The distance was slightly shorter than the TA7, even though the lofts are lower on the Taylor made clubs. My problem with the clubs there isn't one person writing a review on the Gun Metal clubs saying what happens to the face if you miss a shot and hit it on the toe, well it scratches it up. I know it was my fault, but one miss shot to the toe of the gun metal down to the original metal. So needless to say I wasn't to please if you are going to spend that kind of money for clubs the are manufactured in China you need to have better quality control and test it better before you sell it. Pro's are the people testing these clubs and they hit it in the middle, amateurs don't. So keep this in mind if you sometimes hit on the toe you are going to scracth up the finish and you will be upset thinking the manufacture could have been better for the price. Last thought if I could find a set of Cleveland TA7 in better shape than what I got I would buy them and would sell the Taylor Made. Read full review

These clubs are long...deceptively so...Good set for higher handicappers!
I am currently a 5.0 handicap index golfer. My handicap has been on the rise over the past couple of years as my age has increased to its current state of 55 years of age. Prior to the purchase of this set of TaylorMade Burner 2.0 irons, I have always used forged irons with steel shafts going from forged muscle backs to forged perimeter weighted irons. The thought process has been that as I’ve aged, I need to concede some things to father time and move to a more forgiving set of clubs to retain both accuracy and distance. The move to the TaylorMade Burner 2.0 irons therefore was a pretty radical one for me. Instead of being a forged iron, it’s designed to be a very forgiving investment cast maximum perimeter weighted iron, built for distance. The investment cast perimeter weighting isn’t anything really new as that has been around for a number of years now. TaylorMade with this set manufactured greater distance by decreasing the loft of each iron throughout the set and by adding length and reducing weight to each of the shafts (I got the stock lightweight steel shafts in my set). Make no mistake, these clubs are long…very long. The first few rounds I used them, I was flying shots over the green or at least past pin high consistently. But in reality, I believe the added length simply comes from the stronger lofts and the longer and lighter shafts. My set was comprised of a 4 iron through the gap wedge (“A wedge” in TaylorMade speak), but because of the way the clubs are manufactured, I’d say you’re simply getting a disguised set of 3 iron through pitching wedge with the numbers of each iron altered by one number. I like the appearance with the darker finish but I’m not as fond of the massive size of the clubheads nor the thicker top line of the irons versus what I’m used to seeing with forged blades. Also, with the lighter weight of the shafts, I’ve had a hard time adjusting my timing at impact with these clubs and I don’t believe my shot dispersion is as tight as with my forged clubs. So, for now, I’ve gone back to my Mizuno MP-62’s with Project X steel 5.5 shafts. I’ll keep the Burner 2.0’s in the closet for a while and probably bring them back out from time to time as I get older and need to compensate for lost distance. My star rating and whether I would recommend these clubs to a friend depends upon the skill level of the golfer and what they are looking for in a set or irons. I think these clubs are a great choice for double digit handicappers who are looking for a forgiving club and distance. If you are a single digit handicap golfer, I think forged irons are still the way to go. Read full review

great value, and very good performance.
These clubs are very nice looking at address and in style. They are easy to swing and have a nice feel/feedback to them. they are "game improvement irons" however I have 10 years of golf behind me and Have played some competition golf and I use these. excellent value and very good quality. hard to beat these unless you go to "tour irons", but be prepared to fork out about double or more money for a set of those.
