Are the TaylorMade P790 Irons at the head of the class?

TaylorMade P790 irons

The new TaylorMade P790 Irons target the ‘players’ category considered to be the largest market for clubs.

The players category is very broad and includes the bulk of recreational golfers who are playing consistently and mostly progressing in their game.

To put it into more concrete terms it is generally considered to be mid-single-figure to mid-double-digit handicappers who make up the category.

With the TaylorMade P790 Irons, you get the Tour look with some added forgiveness and other assistance.

The new P790 irons have a forged hollow body design, laying the groundwork for improved performance.

This design enables TaylorMade to load these irons with face speed, forgiveness, and a slew of cutting-edge technology.

Aesthetically these clubs are near-perfect for most tastes with a timeless design and muted satin and pearl finishes that take the glare off the Tungsten.

The target for Taylormade’s P790 Irons are players who are looking to step up their distance game without giving up all the qualities of a game-improvement iron.

For golfers in the players’ category, game improvement can be a bit of a dirty term and P790 Irons don’t carry any of that stigma, having the look of an elite players iron.

The club has reviewed very well and earned praise for its feel and tclassic look.

The P-790’s forged hollow body provides a premium feel while delivering exceptional performance.

The internal sound stabilisation bar works with TaylorMade’s SpeedFoam™ Air tech to create an elevated forged iron feel.

The 4140 forged high-speed face is 1.56mm at its thinnest location.

TaylorMade have combined the responsive face and new internal shaping to yield a new sweet spot design, a remarkable advancement from the early generations of this club.

This new enhanced sweet spot promises to intelligently capture more shots while ensuring consistent ball speeds and accuracy. Accuracy and decent distance has been reported by reviewers, many of whom fall directly into the category of players looking to get this kind of club.

Of course there is machine-learning technology in these new clubs, but what really matters is performance. And the P790s perform as well as any of their near competitors in terms of price.

They deliver precision and distance, great feel and the kind of versatile shotmaking ability you want from an iron set.

A set of P790s will set you back $1,399.99 but that sort of investment is to be expected for clubs of this quality.

If the new TaylorMade P790 Irons are not at the head of the class of 2024 they are very close.
