TaylorMade Golf is launching on 14 August (Friday; pre-order) 4 new additions to its acclaimed P Series: P•7MB, P•7MC, and P•770 irons.
Now I will focus only on the TaylorMade P•770 iron as it is probably the most promising iron from this series.
TaylorMade Golf – P•770 irons
The TaylorMade golf P•770 irons are constructed from a forged hollow body with SpeedFoam™ injection and advanced tungsten weighting, this latest model is more akin to its powerhouse sibling the P•790.
P•790 is played by golfers within a broad handicap range – stretching from +4 all the way to 25.
It turned out from customer feedbacks that golfers have a desire for a more compact head shape while also achieving higher launch with long irons and additional spin.
This generational iron was forged from the same DNA as P•790.
The P•770 has a thinner topline, narrower sole and shorter blade length (than the other members of the P series). The smaller construction helps inspire confidence at address, while also promoting enhanced workability and control.
A high-buff polish and Tour satin finish deliver a unified look across this segment of the P Series. This intentional design aesthetic allows the company to better address the growing demand for combo sets.
With the clean aesthetics of P•770, golfers can easily match them with P•7MC or P•790 to create a combo set that looks cohesive in the bag.
P•770 relies on a series of proven technologies
- the forged hollow body is constructed of 8620 soft carbon steel with a thin 4140 steel face to promote fast ball speeds;
- within the face is Progressive Inverted Cone Technology, which is now uniquely positioned in each P•770 iron to both increases the sweet spot and minimize the effects of common mis-hits.
- ICT is positioned in the center of the face on mid irons and more towards the toe on long irons to deliver performance exactly where golfers need it the most.
However, because P•770 is a smaller head shape it naturally offers less forgiveness than P•790. To offset this, engineers boosted MOI by strategically positioning tungsten weights within each head.
Present in the 3-7 irons and weighing up to 46 grams, the tungsten inserts are positioned towards the toe for precise CG placement and increased forgiveness.
