The Takomo 301 Combo irons provide consist of a combination of both muscle back and cavity back with both offering workability and added distance for low handicap golfers.
The Combo Irons set is designed to give golfers the flexibility they need to perform in any conditions with the 301 cavity back model included from 4-iron to 7-iron and muscle back from 8-iron to pitching wedge.
Takomo Golf is committed to providing a wide array of golf clubs to meet the needs of every golfer, and the 301 Combo irons are no different.
Takomo Golf recognised that lower handicap golfers needed an iron set that allows them to work the ball around the golf course without having to break the bank in order to get them.
Launched in 2022, the 301 combo irons meet this need by combining two different designs within one set. But are the 301 irons worth buying over similar iron sets today?
What Takomo say about the 301 Combo Irons:
“The Takomo 301 Combo set includes P to 8 in the 301 MB irons and 7 to 4 in the 301 CB irons.
“This combo set is designed for the golfer who wants to be able to shape approach shots with pinpoint accuracy while being able to reliably reach out and touch greens from longer distances.
“The Takomo Iron 301 combo set mixes 301 MBs in the shorter clubs with the CBs in the longer clubs.
“Where the MBs are a traditional muscleback blade design that promotes unparalleled workability, the CBs provide a forged feel with a touch more forgiveness without compromising that sleek bladed aesthetic.
“This combo set allows golfers to hit their targets reliably from longer range, with the added forgiveness of the CBs, while supporting shot-shaping and pinpoint accuracy from closer range, thanks to the MBs.”
