r7 Draw Irons Reviews

By Matthew Keller


The r7 Draw irons are offset irons that utilize TaylorMade's Inverted Cone Technology. They also they feature a Draw-Weighted Technology that removes weight from the cavity and toe and places the center of gravity closer to the heel. This is designed to square the club face quicker at impact. The set features a thicker top line and sole which helps make the club more forgiving. The set is available in 3 through 9 iron, PW, AW, SW and LW. The swing weight for the 3 iron through 9 iron is D1. The pitching wedge and attack wedge weigh in at D2, while the lob wedge weighs in at D5.

Field Use

The r7 Draw irons are a perfect set for a mid to high handicap player. They are extremely forgiving. You barely feel off center hits with these irons. They are also very long. When players hit the irons, they will notice a difference in distance. They feature ½ inch long shafts and are 2 degrees strong in loft, which creates extra distance. For better ball strikers, it will seem effortless to hit this club. For mid to high handicap players, this iron will help make their ball striking more consistent. They provide a high launch and high ball flight. Players could see as much as a two club difference in distance. Approach shots into the greens are very easy to stop with the r7 Draw irons

Pros and Cons

While anyone can hit the r7 Draw irons, this set is not for everyone. Better players will probably tend to shy away from this set and go for the r7 TP iron. This set will be beneficial for players looking for improved accuracy, distance and forgiveness. Off center hits still travel a good distance. They have a decent feel. The bigger club face and the technology that goes into this set make them easy to play. Since this set of irons has been on the market for a few years, TaylorMade no longer manufacturers this set. However, if you can still get your hands on this set, you could expect somewhere between $200 to $500 for the set.

Bottom Line

TaylorMade is one of the leading club manufacturing companies in the golf industry, and they did a great job designing the r7 Draw irons. While the set is called r7 Draw irons, do not expect to instantly start playing a draw. Your swing and the position of the club face at impact will still determine whether you will hit the ball straight, a fade or draw. What the r7 Draw irons will do is help square the club face quicker for straighter and more forgiving golf shots. If you are a mid to high handicap player, you definitely need to try this set before you make your next iron purchase.
