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.

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.

I've tried most top-end irons over the years (Titleist, Ping, Taylor Made, etc.). These TE irons have a great classic look to them like the old Titleist DCI or Hogan Apex but with very high MOI. They look great, feel great and are super game improvement. As with any club in your bag, it makes a huge difference when you get properly fitted (my club fitter adjusted loft and lie and recommended 1/2 inch longer shafts with KBS C-Taper 90 shafts - but that's just my specs). I would compare the look, feel and results of these TE irons with any of the irons from the big-name manufacturers.

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!

Have the heads been sent to the USGA for approval for use under the "condition of competition" rule?
No, we have not yet submitted the TE Forged irons to the USGA. Hopefully soon. We have submitted the DBM irons and they have been approved by the USGA.

What 2015 name brand iron does this compare to? ?Would changing the loft 2/3 deg. upright and 2 deg. strong affect the forgiveness? ? How about distance control? ?DG S300 a good shaft fit? ?Thanks?
The TE Forged is our own design and not something that was ever patterned after another design. We have had this club model in our product line since 2003 under different names and it continues to sell well for us. Changing the loft and lie spec's would not effect the forgivingness of these heads unless those changes did not prove to be correct for you. Distance control is very good with these heads. DG S300's match well with these irons.

Hello, I am considering building a set of irons using the TE forged head. ?I have a set of DG S300 shafts .355 taper. ?Questions: 1. ?Would I need to use the taper inserts or will I be OK with just the epoxy? 2. ?What ferrule would you recommend?
You can install .355" taper tip shafts into the TE Forged irons without using a shim. We recommend the 74PI ferrules for these irons. They will work with the .355" taper tip shafts.
We use a Universal Hosel bore with the TE Forged irons that has a smaller diameter hole bored at the center bottom of the bore for the .355" taper tip shaft to fit into. The .355" taper tip shaft will taper out to approximately .370" where the shaft exits the top of the hosel so the top part of the shaft will center at that point and the smaller hole at the bottom of the bore will also center the shaft and the space around the tip of the shaft will fill with epoxy. Since the shaft has tapered out to .370" where it exists the top of the hosel the .370" parallel ferrules will also fit just fine.

Re: Maltby Forged Iron Heads, What is a Universal Bore. I have .355 Tapered shaft. Will it fit these hosels. Any adjustment needed for .355 Tapered or .370 Parallel Shafts?
These will accept either the .355" taper tip or .370" parallel tip. .355" taper tips taper out to .370" where the shaft exits the top of the hosel and we have approximately a 1/8" deep .355" hole drilled in the center bottom of a .370" hosel bore so that the .355" taper tip shaft will center into this hole. The space around the shaft will fill with epoxy. The .370" shafts fits as normal and the hole in the center bottom will fill with epoxy.

Thank you very much for your precise reply. With TE forged can you bend each head to 63,5 lie and shut the head with 2? ?
Generally 2 degrees is as much as we will go. We could probably get 3 degrees out of these but that is as much as we would go. To get to 63.5 would mean 4 degrees for the 3 iron. Even though they are forged you will start to mark the hosels and possibly crack the chrome plating. Adjusting the lofts 2 degrees stronger would not be a problem.

Is it possible to build a same length set (37 inches ) with these heads? What would you suggest as head weight: 268 or 276 g , as lie : 63? as swingweight : C9 - D0 Shaft could be TT GS 85 , Recoil with Secret grip ? Could you build such a set ?
No we would not be able to build a single length set with these heads to the specifications you are requesting and maintain the playability of the club. The head weights become the biggest challange and the counter balanced Secret grip just compounds the head weight problem. To give you an example if you used the GS85 shaft at 37" with the 92 gram weight Secret grip to achieve a C9 to D0 swingweight the clubhead weight would have to be in the 288 to 290 gram weight range. We would have to add way to much weight to some of the heads and with graphite shafts the head weights would have to be even higher. We would recommend Single length irons to be assembled from component iron heads that are designed for single length irons. All the clubheads would have the same weight and all the lie angles would be the same. The GolfWorks does not offer a set of component clubheads designed for single length irons.

can I get this lie to be 64 degrees, ma0099 7 iron
We generally keep lie adjustments to 2 degrees but we should be able to get to 64 degrees on the 7 iron with these irons.
