Just in time for spring, the Orlimar Golf Company introduces its Tour3 irons, a progressive iron set designed to give golfers the feel of a forged iron, yet the playability and forgiveness of a cast iron. Made of 1025 carbon forged steel, the low, mid, and high irons are specifically designed to maximize performance and shot making. The higher irons have more of a classic blade look and feel for scoring and the lower irons are designed for more forgiveness.
“The Tour3 irons are designed for the low-to-mid-handicap golfer looking for a little more forgiveness on their 4, 5, 6, and 7 irons, while not sacrificing the feel and workability of the scoring irons,” said Alex Resnik, product marketing manager, Orlimar Golf. “Our player testing on the Tour3 irons has received high marks in feel, distance control and overall playability. Golfers especially like the look of the irons, they look very traditional but the cavity back on the lower irons and muscle back on the mid-irons provides the added forgiveness golfers need for consistency.”
Progressive Set 3 and 4 irons have an undercut cavity and will allow golfers to:
1. Launch the ball higher; and
2. Land it softer to hold the greens
The Progressive Set of 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and pitching wedge irons come with a mid-muscle back. They are designed with the following benefits:
1. The added mass behind the sweet spot will generate more consistent power and control
2. From address, the thin top line looks like a true blade
3. The thin sole allows for greater turf interaction
The Orlimar Tour3 irons are available in an eight-iron set (3-PW) with True Temper Dynamic Gold R300, S300, and X100 shaft options, Golf Pride Pure grips. Currently, they are only available in right-handed models. Custom fit shaft and grip options are available. The suggested retail for a set of eight irons is $699.99.
