TaylorMade P790 irons – 2nd generation

  1. The 2019 TaylorMade P790 irons feature a 7% thinner face designed to produce a faster COR and for the first time includes Progressive Inverted Cone Technology (PICT) designed to improved accuracy throughout the set, minimizing the right tendency often found in the long irons.
  2. Just like in the previous version of TaylorMade P790 irons (2017), in this edition, we can find the SpeedFoam Technology, a proprietary construction which serves a dual purpose of generating ball speed as well as the management of sound and feel.
  3. A larger mass of tungsten – 15% more than in the first-generation TaylorMade P790 irons – has been reshaped to deliver a deeper center of gravity. The new tungsten design helps to lower the CG and increase the launch angle of the new 2019 model.
  4. Shaping – The long irons (6-3i) have progressively less offset and the blade length was shaved down slightly in the scoring irons (7-AW) for more compact players iron proportions. The topline shaping was refined by increasing the face height in the toe for a cleaner progression through the set.

TaylorMade P790 UDI irons – main features & innovations
  1. Constructed with a soft, 8620 carbon steel body combined with high-strength forged 4140 carbon steel with a wrapped-face construction in hollow body design. 
  2. Ultra-thin forged face with Inverted Cone Technology for an expanded sweet spot within a slightly smaller face area. Similar to the first generation P·790 UDI, the new, smaller Inverted Cone in the new TaylorMade P790 UDI allows for reduced face thickness at the edges of the face, thus increasing flexibility from heel to toe and low on the clubface and optimizing ball speed across the entire face. 
  3. The Thru-Slot Speed Pocket – just like in the 2017 edition.
  4. Re-engineered internal metal-injection-molded (MIM) tungsten weighting for precise CG placement and higher moment of inertia (MOI).

TaylorMade P790 Ti irons – a game-improvement iron

The body of the TaylorMade P790 Ti iron is comprised of 9-1-1 titanium.

The use of titanium allowed engineers to increase the amount of tungsten (up to 119gnearly half of the iron head mass) in the sole of the iron for an ultra-low center of gravity – the lowest CG in any P Series iron

Due to its titanium construction, the iron features a lighter face and a large sweet spot by way of TaylorMade’s patented Thru-Slot Speed Pocket – the company’s most flexible Speed Pocket™ design to date.

The face design also includes the Progressive ICT design and an additional Speed Pocket in the 8i intended for more consistent yardage gapping through the set.

Compared to the original TaylorMade P790 irons, the TaylorMade P790 Ti irons have a slightly longer blade length (2mm), taller face (2mm) and .5mm of increased offset.

It also utilizes a slightly wider sole with increased bounce for added forgiveness.
