Maltby TE Forged Irons
New for 2010, the Maltby M-Series Tour Edition Forged Irons replace the popular MTF Forged Irons. The Tour Edition Forged Iron club head has been developed based on customer request for a traditional cavity back design with less graphics. The exceptionally clean look of the M-Series TE irons along with a traditional blade profile appeals to the better players and traditionalist looking for more forgiveness. The TE Forged irons are the result of a tireless five step forging process that starts with a raw billet of 1035 carbon steel and through a series of 5 different forging dies and multiple heat treating process’ creates an incredibly precise finished head requiring very little surface grinding. Typical forged cavity backs only utilize one forging die and have to be hand ground into the final shape and head weight, causing inconsistencies in every clubs specifications from one club to the next. By optimizing the center of gravity position, the Maltby TE Forged irons offer Super Game Improvement playability, combined with the exceptional feel and look of a true forged, players cavity iron.

Maltby TE Forged Irons is rated
Rated 5 out of
First off, these came with stickers giving the weight to within .1 gram, very cool. Secondly, the catalog and internet do not do these clubs justice. They are beautiful looking heads. I actually thought they were kind of ugly on the internet but wanted them anyway for the constant offset and high playability but once I saw them I was impressed. Finally,I assembled with Rifle 4.5 and tried a rudimentary M.O.I. match. The results have been wonderful and have carried over from the range to the course, actually better performing on the course! Congratulations on a great set; I anticipate buying another set just like it because they are that good!

I'm one of those golf fans who has played more clubs than I should have. Mizuno were by far my preference before I met Mr. TE Forged. I had been playing on any given day MP-32/60 combo or MP37. I'm really not consistent enough to play those clubs so I tried the Nike VR Forged. While they are no doubt long they were a bit too chunky in appearance for me and I just couldn't get comfortable with the 7-9 irons in particular. I demoed and loved the newest AP2 as well as the MP54 and JPX Pro. The problem with those three sets is I don't like paying that much for golf clubs. I'd rather spend it on my son or my wife. I am a golf blog junkie who rarely comments but always researches. After hearing much fanfare of the Maltby brand I dug a little deeper into their forged offerings. I bought a set of MMB used, and although I liked them and think they are fantastic clubs in their own right, they were just a little to long in their profile for me. I decided to swap out my 5 and 6 iron MP60 with a TE 5 and 6 to give Maltby another shot since I read the TE is a little more compact in length. Let me tell you that the minute I opened the box containing the 5 and 6 iron I went to the website and ordered the 7-Gap. These clubs ooze classy and beg to be swung the minute you lay eyes on them. The results on the range were immediately what I had felt the first time I pured one of my old mizzys. The funny thing is on the next shot I missed toward the toe considerably and figured for sure the ball would land 40 plus yards short and right of target. To my pleasure and surprise the ball traveled only 15 yards short (6 iron) on a rather poor swing that I know for a fact any other club I own would have had atrocious results. Even the shots which I hit a little thin traveled at the target and had enough steam to put me in a workable situation on my next shot. My other clubs no doubt would have left me with dribblers. I paired the heads with the Score LT shaft which is a perfectly acceptable combo but I do wish I would have gone stiff rather than regular as I'm getting some dispersion to the right. That's my fault however as I mistakenly ordered regular. Anyway, long story short, best club I've owned and at an unbeatable price. I'll never buy another brand/model of irons. Period.

Great Forged Head
For $25 a head you cannot beat the quality, look and feel of these irons. Just a plain and simple forged cavity back with hardly any offset no gimmicks or misleading marketing. They feel great, can be bent however you like and very well made. The also look great! simple and classy. These are superior in quality to most anything the general public can get (non professional club makers). I had a 7iron made up by golfworks (great work by the way) and can't be happier, I will probably get a whole set.

TE irons remind me of Ben hogan apex
Bought these irons with S300 dyn gold shafts after taking a club making class there at golf works. I am a Ben Hogan iron fanatic. These irons have a great look and balanced feel. When you hit the sweet spot the feeling is awesome. Great distance and a much higher playability rating than my Hogans with that same wonderful sweet spot! For your Hogan fans you know exactly what I am talking about. Great job golfworks team on these irons.

Smooth & forgiving
I have tried just about every iron available for the last 5 years. Before this set i had a Cobra CB set with 5.5 rifle shafts stepped to about 5.2 At first i tried just shifting the shafts but the deeper bore on Maltby made the clubs to short, and the combination made the ball fly high, way to high... Bought True Temper SL with sensicore and now i finally found IT! Smooth but yet forgiving,easy to get the ball in the air even on mishits. Highly recommended if you don't like offset clubs!

End of a Long Search
I have a pile of 7 iron heads from testing to find a perfect club. This is it. Assembled them on FST PRO 115 shafts and have never been more pleased with a set of irons. They seem able to correct for off center hits but still let you know how you are striking the ball. Also makes a beautiful club with very clean lines, especially with leaving the labels off the shafts. At less than half the price of comparable (yet not as great) manufactured clubs, I must salute Maltby and The GolfWorks.

These are amazing club heads. They are so forgiving with such a small head. Beautiful look at address. I coupled them with Grafalloy ProCustom shafts and Lamkin X10 grips. I had to add quite a bit of weight to the heads to get to my preferred d2 swingweight but was successful at forming the lead tape inside of the curve of the cavity so they look pretty cool. Best playing club I have owned. Nice high ball flight with good distance on off center hits. Highly recommended!

I have always used a forged cavity backed club. I ordered these heads with a senior flex graphite shaft. No good; no distance ; too high a ball flight. My error; heads are quality. Get the right shaft.

How do I get TT lite A shafts on this order for the $199 3-pw set and a flat lie (1 degree)? ?Or does the set come with other shafts and neutral lie as standard?
True Temper no longer offers the TT Lite XL iron shafts in an A flex.
You would have to place your order for the clubheads and then an order for the shaft and grips you want. When you get to checkout in the Special Instructions box you would request to have them assembled and have the lie angles adjusted to 1 degree flat.
For an A flex steel shaft you could look at the True Temper Multi Step Lite (TT0061) or the FST 90 (FS0011) or FST 115 (FS0012)

Can A steel shafts be ordered?
If you are asking about A flex steel shafts, yes, we have several options. True Temper offers an L/A combination flex (can be trimmed for A flex) in the Multi-Step Lite shaft. FST offers A/R combination flex shafts (can be trimmed for A flex) n the FST 90, FST 115 and the FST Pro 115. Nippon offers A flex taper tip steel shafts in the NS Pro 8950 and the Zelos 7.

Description says "new for 2010". ?How has the model been updated to compete with current product lines?
In 2010 this product was updated to have the new grooves required by the USGA. That is the only change we have made and this continues to be one of our best selling irons. Last year we did do a black version and did strengthen the lofts by 1 degree in that model.

Can I demo or see these clubs some where around the cinti,ohio area? I live in the 45244 zip code.looking to buy a complete set but want to try them 1st...
Our products are not in any of the golf retail stores and I am not sure of any customers we have in the Cincinnati area who might have these available to try. You could call our Customer Service and ask if we have customers in the Cincinnati area who might have these for you to try. In some cases we will know of clubmaker's in a given area who might be able to help you.

Currently play ping i20 irons and like the feel of cast. Will the feeling of these irons be too different for me or is there another iron that plays similar to cast.
Investment Casting is a process, just like Forging. You can cast all kinds of materials, just as you can forge all kinds of materials. The feel of the golf club comes largely from how well the mass and dimensional characteristics of a model are designed. Softer materials can change the feel as well, but it is not the primary factor. The TE irons are billet forged from 1035 carbon steel. The i20 irons are most likely 17-4 stainless, possibly 431 stainless. The carbon steel generally does have a softer hardness rating, but stainless steels can be heat treated to be softer. Whether the difference in the hardness of the material will make a difference for you in the feel of the club is something only you can determine. Another part of he club that affects feel is the shaft type and flex. So, if you are comparing, be sure you are comparing the heads using the same material and flex of shaft.

How exactly is the 5-iron blade length and toe height measured ?
Blade length is measured from the center line of the hosel where that point exits the sole to the furthest point of the toe. Toe height is measured with the club in the playing position straight up from the ground line to and over to the highest point of the toe. Measuring the clubs toe height in this position takes into account different sole radius that different models will have.

Other than the color and the +1 loft, how do these differ from the DBM head?
These have a chrome plated finish and the DBM's have the black finish and the +1 degree loft change that you mentioned. Those are the only differences.
