Burner plus supposed to be bigger, thick topline, more offset, higher launch, max forgiveness.

The 09 Burners are supposed to be a "progressive set" meaning different irons look slightly different; the longer irons have thicker topline, wider sole and more offset; the shorter irons have less offset, thinner topline, and smaller sole widths and different bounce.
Flight is supposed to be mid-launch.

So, I think the Burner plus is supposed to be slightly more forgiving. But I am personally very tempted by the 09 burners; just trying to find out what shaft options they have. Very Happy

My fren just bought his burner plus. Very chunky and super thick top line. a lot of graphics. Yes, it is designed as a super game improvement set. Smile

Yup, i was researching online due to a little itch on my backside to change irons... and realise i quite like the 09 Burner too... So maybe can give Burner a consider too...

Any comment on Tour Burner? Looks even better than Burner... Smile

You can check out the TM website which compares all the TM irons.. the Tour Burner is less forgiving, with thinner sole line and less chunky but is more workable... i'm getting myself a set of the Burner 09 irons with 65 gm shafts... Smile

No - I just wondered what the difference was between the price of RH and LH clubs.

This is something which I'm learning: Don't buy clubs to suit your price. Buy clubs to suit your game.

Indeed, as would everyone else. But sometimes, you have to decide which is more important, i.e. game or pocket. And if you want to buy something to suit your game but can't afford it, then you should save up rather than spending on something cheaper which doesn't quite suit your game.

Anyway, my 2 cents.
