    Lightbulb TaylorMade R11 Irons

    Has anyone heard anything about TaylorMade coming out with a set of irons to match the R11 Driver and Fairways like they did with R7 & R9? I was already considering a new set of irons since I've had mine 2 years and play a lot. I am absolutely loving my R11 Rescue 4, the R11 Driver is the next club I get. But I will need irons before too long and figured I'd ask about R11's. Any news would be appreciated. I searched the threads and didn't see anything on R11 irons. If I missed it I apologize.

    As per TaylorMade, they will not release R11 irons. Big push is to get a good footing in the forged market.

    I figured the TM TP irons were the replacement irons for the R9's. I don't know how a white iron (as someone mentioned before) would fare in the iron market. I think the driver market has more room for experimentation.

    +1, love the white on my woods but irons would be horrible, maybe only the top line and cavity could be white but if they did more than that it would be horrid looking after a few shots lol

    I would think it would be at least a little while until they come out with a new set...considering the 3 that were just released & the 2.0's. I could be wrong but one of those sets should hit just about every handicap. Personally I would go for a mixed set of CB and MC's.

    I'm hearing rumors, but still nothing concrete that there MAY be another set of irons coming out this year.

    Anyone in the know out there want to share anything?

    I'm not seeing any pics or reports or anything. I have my doubts because of the Forged and 2.0 line being so new.

    As I posted on twitter earlier in the week. THP has spoken to Taylormade Golf in regards to images around the web. They have insisted that these images are nothing more than counterfeits and showed us the details pointing that out. When the embargo date passes, THP will have full pictures of any new irons that are currently being talked about. Thanks for understanding our embargo policy.

    Also remember that Japan products and US products are quite different in many cases. This is exactly what transpired when the R9 irons were released and the pics popped up around the web. Then THP showed off the real pictures and they were quite different.

    While I will not comment on the similarities and/or differences, I can say that after speaking with them, the pics you are seeing at many places are in fact counterfeits.
