TaylorMade P790 Irons For Sale
Are you searching for a fresh iron to hit it closer to make birdies and find yourself more opportunities? While most golfers often update their driver and fairway woods, while replacing equipment, iron is always overlooked. Yet with too much modern technology, by using old and rusty iron, you are losing out.
The Taylormade P790 irons are one particular update for the 2019-2020 golf season. They have undergone an impressive upgrade from the previous edition, which is now wildly common. You don’t mess with what works, you make it stronger, as Taylormade says on their website. “Keep reading to hear how TaylorMade upgraded their newest iron for further distance, forgiveness, and playability in 2020.”
The iron P790 has a hollow-body feature. This helps the face, causing the extra distance, to bend further at touch. The cavity is packed with SpeedFoam, TaylorMade ‘s patented stuff. This rubber-like material has 2 features.
It supports the thin face, helping to transmit energy for longer distances to the golf ball. SpeedFoam ‘s second feature is feeling. This dampens effect waves, allowing you a stronger experience as bullets are hit around the chest.
The purpose of a cast distance iron, like other OEMs, is to maintain a form and aesthetic desired by better players while exploiting thinner faces to create more ball speed (and thus more distance). To that end, the P790 blends a 1.75 mm thick face (3-7 iron) made of 4140 forged carbon steel with a body of 8620 carbon steel.
By contrast, the 0311 iron of PXG has a face thickness of 1.47 mm. As with many other recent TaylorMade deals, the P790 3-7 iron has a speed slot (but no face slots), allegedly to help improve ball speed on thin shots. As is common, where loft becomes the primary contributor to distance (the 8-PW), no slot is needed. The face is thicker and the hosel longer in such short irons to help lift the CG and offer greater power over trajectory and shot form.
TaylorMade ‘s emphasis on making a good-looking iron (by anyone’s definition) seems to be paying off relative to previous generations of iron. In the P790 range, the aesthetic sophistication that TaylorMade began last year with the “P” series (P770, P750) irons takes another step forward. The lines are bold, but clean, and TaylorMade’s drive for more polished iron continues with the whole kit. The effect is a look that, also with the addition of SpeedFoam, is both uniquely TaylorMade and absolutely classy.
TaylorMade's P790 – A Better-Player Game Changer
Because of the impressive distances he hits them, Jason Day, the former world No. 1 and a TaylorMade loyalist since becoming a pro in 2006, has emerged as the new golf poster boy for long iron, so it’s no surprise he’s always the go-to club tester for TaylorMade’s Senior Director of Iron Formation, Tomo Bystedt.
When Bystedt appeared early during the week of the PGA Tour’s Bridgestone Invitational After all, the next week will be the PGA Championship, and the FedEx Cup Playoffs and Presidents Cup will follow close behind. In the end, however, Day couldn’t fight the temptation to be one of the first to strike the new iron. ‘The first one he hits flies dead straight, with maybe a touch of a pass, and goes all the way to the end of the range,’ says Bystedt. Day tore a couple more, then attempted a few tiny, more punch-like shots that zipped not more than 30 to 40 feet off the field and rolled away.
‘I’m reading numbers for him from my TrackMan 267 bring, 281 overall, anything like that. Completely crazy how hard he hit it. Perhaps 10 balls into the process he walked over to his pack, took out his new 2-iron, gave it to Bystedt and said, “I no longer need this one; you can take it back.” Since then, Day has been using the P790 long iron. On the same day, PGA Tour newcomer Xander Schauffele tested Justin Rose with the P790 2-iron Bystedt had brought.
Never mind that it was made with the beloved shaft, handle, and upright specs of Rose, all drastically different from what Schauffele played. Schauffele sent his caddie to the TaylorMade truck after only a few shots with it to get it designed to his specs. (Two weeks ago, you know what happened with the 2-iron in his hand, the 23-year-old Schauffele earned the Tour Championship.) Within a few weeks of publication, Day, Rose, Dustin Johnson, Camillo Villegas, Chez Reavie and more would use P790 long iron, which, according to Bystedt, is a rare fast turn when it comes to tour players and their iron.
The elegant, forged-blade look is partially why better players already seem to resonate with the P790s. Golfers have egos, and there is no commodity that claims I’m more of a successful golfer than a blade. The reality, Bystedt says, is that the P790 is simply a rather accommodating iron that packs a strong punch due to its hollow-cavity construction and Speedfoam technology, which perfectly hides a bundle of game-improvement features in a conventional blade kit.
Of course, blades are much better because golfers without tour-player skills will play them with comparable performance. “In reality, the full package of P790 irons is a stronger match for single-digit handicappers, who can profit from the additional distance and forgiveness throughout the bag, than it is for tour players.” My golf buddies pay attention to the buzz among the better players at their party, “says Bystedt,” but when golfers reach these P790s, we wanted to create a visible change, something that makes them think, The buzz is taken by the P790 and applied to a cast distance iron that can be played by more golfers. Why is there not to love?
