TaylorMade have released their latest version of the P700 series of irons with the new P·790 & P·790 Ti Players Distance Irons with its SpeedFoam technology and refined shaping, which TaylorMade state combines performance, feel and aesthetics. They also claim the forged iron delivers remarkable distance, playability and combines feel with a refined topline in a more compact blade length, that has a reduced offset.
The new 2019 P·790 features a 7% thinner face and is designed to produce a faster COR and includes Progressive Inverted Cone Technology (PICT) helping to improved accuracy throughout the set. The thinner face also maintains sound and feel but enhances feedback even on off-centre strikes.
Behind the face of the new P·790 is TaylorMade’s SpeedFoam technology, a proprietary construction which serves a dual purpose of generating ball speed as well as the management of sound and feel. Injected into the clubhead, SpeedFoam provides face support and damping properties.
The P·790 has a 15% larger tungsten insert and has been reshaped to deliver a deeper centre of gravity. This was achieved by moving the mass saved in the thinner face as well as removing mass in the iron frame – high toe area – and repositioning it by way of the larger, low profile tungsten design, this also helped to lower the CG and increase the launch angle.
The designers have tweaked the sole radius for improved turf interaction and the longer irons (6-3i) have progressively less offset and the blade length was shaved down slightly in the scoring irons (7-AW). The topline shaping was refined by increasing the face height in the toe for a cleaner progression through the set.
The irons will be available at retail from September 6, the new P·790 irons will be offered in 3-PW, AW equipped with True Temper’s Dynamic Gold 105 VSS steel shafts or UST Mamiya’s Recoil 760/780 ES SmacWrap graphite shafts with Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 grips. Numerous other custom shaft options will also be available.
