Taylormade RBZ Vs Taylormade R7 Irons Comparison Overview
Taylormade has been a stalwart in the game improvement golf club space for a long time now. So much so that they have a selection of game improvement irons that are honestly a bit difficult to keep up with.
Even some of their older models are still worth a look in 2022. In this case, we are talking about the Taylormade R7 irons and the Taylormade RBZ irons. Which are the most forgiving? Find out in the following comparison overview
Taylormade RBZ Irons Overview
The long irons in this set have a two-piece construction.
So what does that do for actual performance? Well it gives these irons a metal-wood-type feel. It also increases COR. The first thing we noticed about these irons is that they play really hot. You can feel the ball fly off of the club face even when you don’t pure it.
The RBZ irons also have what Taylormade calls a “toe bar” which is essentially a brace out near the toe that limits face deflection. What that means in terms of performance is that your toe-side misses will fly straighter.
And indeed, mis-hits were greatly corrected with these irons. They aren’t as big as the Taylormade R7 irons; but they will help straighten out your shot.
Taylormade R7 Irons Overview
The Taylormade R7 irons are marked by their large size, insane launch and deep cavity backs.
The 7-iron is set to 35 degrees. Apex height was incredible with these irons. In particular, we were impressed with the long irons in this set. The long irons offer flighted loft and incredible distance. In fact, the Taylormade R7’s flew an average 7 yards further than the Taylormade RBZ irons.
But what’s nice is that the high launch allows mid to high handicap players attack greens from their second or third shot. They play long and while there isn’t a lot of spin to speak of, they land soft on tricky greens.
The Taylormade R7 irons feature inverted cone technology which helps straighten out errant shots by expanding the sweet spot over the part of the face that most players mis-hit on.
So which was more forgiving? That honor belongs to the Taylormade R7 irons. The sweet spot feels like it’s the size of Texas and it’s very hard to miss. Plus, the Taylormade R7 irons played longer than the Taylormade RBZ irons.
