Editorial Commentary On The TaylorMade Burner 2.0 Video
Probably the first thing you'll notice is the new look. The Taylor Made Burner 2.0 has a gun metal finish, giving it a cool, tough look.
The technology seems to make sense. Longer irons are used for distance while shorter irons are use to get close to the flag. So, what Taylor Made has done is adjust the technology within the set to achieve these objectives. The longer clubs have bigger heads with thinner faces. Bigger heads instill confidence in the average golfer, and confidence make you strike the ball more consistently. The thinner face (up to 5% thinner) produces faster ball speed and higher flights, which means maximum distance. All this is designed to consistently get the golfer down the fairway in fewer strokes.
With the shorter clubs, they have made it more compact. This give the golfer a more controlled feel, thus producing more accuracy in the short game.
The center of gravity is different for every Taylor Made 2.0 Burner iron. Since each iron has a specific task to accomplish, this makes sense. Likewise, the inverted cone is placed in different positions on each iron, giving each iron maximum forgiveness and distance.
The sole of every Burner 2.0 iron is shaped to minimize ground resistance, thus, producing cleaner ball strikes.
The kick point on each Burner 2.0 iron is also customized for each club. The kick point is where the club flexes most. When the kick point is low (closer to the club head), this helps the golfer produce a higher trajectory ball flight. When the kick point is high (closer to the handle), this helps the golfer product a lower trajectory ball flight. Again, since each club has a specific job to do, the kick points are adjust accordingly.

Type of Test: Game Improvement Irons
- designed for optimal distance with 12 yard gaps between clubs
- weighting is set higher in short clubs, giving it a blade feel with more workability. Conversely, weighting is set lower in longer clubs for maximum forgiveness.
- recessed heel and toe creates less turf drag, increasing playability
Feedback From Testers:
- very forgiving club
- easy to hit high
- mid and short-irons have great stopping power
- short irons can control ball flight (high or low)
- rounded soles makes it easy to hit off tight lies, thicker fairways, and fairway bunkers
- some testers reported little sidespin, producing consistently straighter shots
- distance was consistent in well struck shots
- shorter hitters received a boost from lighter shafts and lively face
- center hits feel soft and compressed
- thick topline instilled confidence; single white groove helps with alignment; red and white diagrams on grip helps, too
- graphite shafts feel too light for some testers
- many testers reported that working the ball left and right was too limited
