TaylorMade Burner Plus Irons Review

By Clint Hale


Designed with those having a mid-high handicap (at least a 10) in mind, TaylorMade's line of Burner Plus irons typically consists of a 3 iron to 9 iron, with four different types of wedges available. Shafts are available in both graphite and steel designs, while club length for a standard set of male clubs ranges from 35.75" (lob wedge) to 39.5" (3 iron). The clubs also feature a cavity badge, which increases feel and aids in vibration management. The Burner Plus is available in both men's and ladies' versions, as well as steel and graphite varieties. Though no longer in production, the clubs remain widely available on the secondary market. 


For those lacking some distance off the fairway and out of the rough, the Burner Plus irons should help solve that problem. Thanks to a light, long shaft and thin club face, the Burner Plus irons are ideal for mid-high handicappers looking to add some distance. Plus, the light shaft is sure to accelerate swing speed for those looking to speed up their swings.



Due to its oversized club face, the club isn't ideal for those sub-10 handicappers who are content with their shot distance. If anything, it could prove detrimental to these types of golfers, as the oversized club face could yield problems for those who have established a low handicap with a traditionally sized club face.


Bottom Line

For those looking to shed a few strokes in their quest for a single-digit handicap via added distance and ball height, the TaylorMade Burner Plus line of irons just might be the ticket to such a goal. Low handicappers should look elsewhere.
