TaylorMade Golf has announced the third generation of the P•790 irons.
A pioneer in the player's distance iron category, P•790 are built on a foundation of performance and elegance. Delivering power, distance and feel in a package that appeals to a wide range of players. So how do you improve one of the most successful irons in recent history?
By redeveloping the technology that sits at the centre of it all!
Say hello to SpeedFoam Air
The all-new SpeedFoam Air is an ultralight urethane foam inside the forged hollow body Construction. It is 69% less dense than the prior generation and, in a world where even the most microscopic change can lead to major results, the switch to SpeedFoam Air accounts for an average of 3.5g weight savings in respective irons. The change allows for a substantial redistribution of mass to lower CG placement and improved launch properties.
As a result, TaylorMade has been able to introduce the thinnest face in P•790 history allowing for the creation of an intelligent sweet spot.
P•790 heads are crafted from an 8620 carbon steel that maintains strength and durability while allowing for a new thin-walled design. This re-engineered Forged Hollow Body Construction pairs with a responsive 1.5mm forged 4140 steel L-Face to promote supreme flexibility, fastball speeds and distance while upholding a premium forged feel.
TaylorMade’s development team charted data from thousands of golf shots and determined the most common impact points on the iron face. Based on this, they have strategically shaped and positioned the sweet spot to capture more of those shots.
The outcome? Measurable upticks in ball speed and distance compared to the prior generation.
Overall, the sweet spot has been better aligned with the centre face to naturally provide performance where golfers need it the most.
The 2021 P•790 contains much of the DNA that has made this a dynamic iron franchise for more than five years. Heavy tungsten weighting, up to 31g in an individual iron head, is strategically positioned to deliver both stability and forgiveness. The patented Thru-Slot Speed Pocket™ continues to provide increased face flexibility while preserving ball speed and distance on low face strikes.
The new P•790 is an excellent pairing for combo sets with P•770, P•7MC and even P•7MB in some cases.
Available at retail at select On Course Golf stores from Friday, September 3. The new P•790 irons will be offered in 3-PW/AW and come equipped with True Temper Dynamic Gold steel shafts or Mitsubishi Chemical MMT graphite shafts with Golf Pride Z-Grips.
