TaylorMade Burner Irons: 1990-1999

When the original TaylorMade Burner Midsize irons hit the scene in 1993, their construction and midsize profile were a revelation for the time.

Constructed using a unique foam-filled stainless steel cast head, the Burner Midsize irons offered a combination of feel and forgiveness. Similar foam technology is used by TaylorMade today, referred to as SpeedFoam Air.

The TaylorMade Burner midsize irons sparked a shift away from traditional forged blade irons, instead focusing on the lucrative game improvement market.

Building on the success of the original Burner midsize irons, TaylorMade pushed the limits of clubhead size in 1996 with the revolutionary Burner Bubble irons.

These irons featured an oversized profile and “bubble” technology. This involved a hollow lower portion and a thin face to improve forgiveness and launch.

TaylorMade continued to improve its oversized cavity back iron technology through the late 1990s, leading to the 1999 release of the Burner SuperSteel irons.

Constructed from super tough 15-5 stainless steel, these irons had a lower center of gravity to promote higher launching shots and greater forgiveness. Advanced vibration damping gave them a soft, solid feel at impact as well.

For almost a decade, other TaylorMade irons like the 2003 RAC irons were released to meet the company’s game improvement offering. But in 2008, TaylorMade finally unveiled the Tour Burner and standard Burner Plus irons.

The Tour Burner irons were the first to utilize both steel and composite materials in a hybrid construction design. This opened the door for custom-tuned performance, with weight strategically placed to optimize launch and spin.

Conversely, the Burner Plus irons were modeled on previous Burner releases, incorporating classic Burner styling focused on maximum distance. Improved vibration damping gave them a responsive feel, even on mishits.

Then in 2009, TaylorMade launched the acclaimed Burner 1.0 irons. Designed to deliver easy distance to a wide range of players, these irons featured expanded face areas and low/deep center of gravity. The “Inverted Cone” clubface promoted fast, consistent ball speeds, while updated internal acoustics enhanced feel.

TaylorMade Burner Irons: 2010-2019

In 2010, TaylorMade launched the Burner 2.0 irons. For this design, TaylorMade engineered each iron individually — rather than simply altering the loft angle. This results in uniform distance gaps, increased playability, and better sound and feel.

Each club head also receives unique weight placement, allowing the CG location to be precision-placed to optimize ball flight for each iron in the set.

Most recently in 2015, TaylorMade debuted the AeroBurner. These irons embody everything the Burner series set out to be, featuring low CG and high MOI for ultimate forgiveness, distance, and launch.

For many everyday golfers, long irons are a weakness. The Aeroburner irons have a “Speed Pocket” built into the sole, which helps maintain ball speed even on thin shots that are typical from the longer irons in the set.

Balancing powerful metals with vibration-damping adhesives, AeroBurner irons deliver forgiveness and playability to players across a wide range of abilities.
