The P·7MB was made with the best ball strikers in the world in mind, those who require Tour like levels control. Like all TaylorMade irons the P·7MB has stunning looks, complete with a thin topline and slim sole which helps to create a minimalist profile. The P·7MB utilizes 1025 carbon steel that’s forged using a 2,000-ton press. This in itself ensures as tighter grain as possible in order to deliver the most solid and consistent feel. For Rory its also vital that the Iron itself has a clean top line and creates the just right sound to his ear.

Interestingly the P·7MB looks incredibly similar to Tiger Wood’s current P·7TWs, but the key difference being that the P·7MBs do not have the milled grind technology that features on the sole of the P·7TWs.
