I have to give some props to the over looked iron in the Maltby line up. The PTM chrome have been my demo-testing irons since they came out but I had not tried the entire set.

The PTM have an ease of playing and consistency that make them perfect to teat with. I was gaming the TS2 in a combo set that had both the TS1 and the MMB Blacks worked in as the lofts fit.

4° gapping is important to me but so is the 4 way or v type sole. So being a digger i could struggle with the MMB in less than ideal turf. Could not get comfortable with the TS1 for some unknown reason. Enter the PTM blacks.

I’ve been a huge fan of the DBM finish and believe its the best way to go for a long term set of clubs. The color also hides a midsize club in that it appears smaller to the eye. 4° gapping and a relieved leading edge made these near perfect for my game.

I have seen consistently in distance that has been unrivaled in my memory. They are paired with a prototype Xcaliber Rapid taper iron shaft. That shaft and head combo has been incredible. They load and release in a way that is so unique. Excellent feel and a very tight dispersion.

I added a 52 and a 56 M+ wedge to complete the 4° gaps. I seem to have a perfect setup for where my game is these days. I want to play a blade, yet need some help. Also need the traditional gapping because I can still get after the ball.

Yes the TS series are catalog Rock Stars, but don’t over look the PTMs.

I also have to note that the PTM 4 iron is the easiest and most consistent 4 iron i have ever played, and I haven’t gamed a 4 iron in 15 years. Out of the rough, fairway or tee box its one of my best clubs in the bag. 4th round in a row at +2 or better for 18 holes.

Keep and eye out for the Xcaliber Rapid Taper iron shafts. They are going to make huge waves in the industry. Its that good.

    • Thanks Popeye for the information and I am jealous about the Rapid taper shafts. I have been looking forward to get some of them to test out for a while. I got a TS-2, PTM and STi2 head waiting to get those shafts to figure out which ones I am going to upgrade to next. I like the looks of the PTM blacks but don't want to dish out to get a complete set until I have a chance to hit it first. David
