    I've had a TaylorMade discount burning a hole in my pocket (for like a week, smh...), so I caved and bought a set of P790s. These have always peaked my interest, but they were just a little more than I ever wanted to spend. I went with the 780 SMACWRAP Shafts in F4. It will be a total experiment for me with those shafts, but if it doesn't work out, I can always flip for some z585s.
    they are a fun set dude. I bet you'll enjoy them, and if not, 585s are killer too

        Looks like a great set up!
        Can't speak for the irons but I have the same shafts in Rogue X, soft stepped and I loved them.

            • My swing still sucks, but MAN did I still enjoy hitting these. The few I pured felt/sounded amazing. I can also confirm, ha, that balls struck off the toe still sound/feel pretty good too. You still get feedback, but its much less harsh than with my z565s.

              • Today was a good day with the P790s. Had a lesson this morning and then hit up the range afterwards. My swing is definitely coming around, making these a blast to hit. I hit only my 9i during my lesson, and I quickly fell in love with it. My speed is down while I work on mechanics, but I was STILL seeing distances similar to what I saw with my z565 9i. While spin seemed lower on average, I can't really assess that until I increase my SS to where I was last summer, and I did hit one with 7990 RPMs that stopped quickly.

                I also really love the look of these irons at address. They are perfect size-wise to my eye. Compact but not blade small. Love the contrast between satin chrome heads and the black/charcoal SMACWRAP shafts. The shafts feel fantastic too. I was nervous ordering them in F4 blind, but I'm very pleased thus far.

                • Watched a playing partner load his new p790’s just before a medal this weekend. He was literally taking the rappers off whilst waiting to Tee Off.

                  Both myself and the other player have p790’s so we told him to add 5 yards to every shot as a start and take it from there.

                  By the third hole his eyes where filled with panic.... he was having a military day off the T with the driver. Left, Right, Left ....

                  He N/R by the 10th. Started playing irons only and came in with 17 points on the back nine. Never seen a better advert for these clubs! Total of 25 points of his 10 Hcp and you couldn’t wipe the smile of his face.

                  Almost certain he will play irons only for the next round.

                  • I think I found my Happy Place with these bad boys. They barely got any work into today during my round because I cannot get off the tee to save my life--lots of hybrids and wedges. I hit two buckets after my round and had my best session with these irons yet. My 9i and AW were automatic. I hit 7i once because I flushed it. I hit two of the longest 6i's I've ever hit. While the 8i was stubborn, hooking for a bit, I ended my range session with a high 8i that carried to the 150 flag with just a touch of draw. I'm very, very happy with this purchase.

                    • The range i get on these is unreal at times. I clocked an 8 iron 160 today (way over green) and a 9 iron like 150 (again, over green). That's unheard of for my swing and swing speeds.

                      Had them 6 months and still trying to nail my yardages and trust the clubs and which number I need to pull out.

                      • TaylorMade P730 and P790 Irons

                        I was fortunate enough to hit some of Chandler’s (Taylormade Chandler) P790s this weekend. He had a quite a unique setup: they were raw (rusted) and bent 2* weak, which lowered the offset, He is a wealth of knowledge for fitting equipment, and understanding the ability and opportunities for optimizing these heads => eye opening. In short, these are lower to mid-handicap players irons that can solve many problems.

                        In fact, they may be a little mid-understood and better for more of us than originally thought. Hit me with questions.

                          For a "player's distance iron," these are pretty darn forgiving, especially in the short irons. I'm still a high cap, but I've gotten along quite well with these. I'm still working on my swing and getting more consistency out of the 6 and 7 irons, but I've been really pleased with what I've seen from 8-AW. They are also really LONG. I'm going to have to spend time dialing in the yardages because I hit some 9 irons last night that just looked longer than I've ever seen.

                            They are definitely long, hence the opportunity to go a tad weaker in lofts. This is interesting to me because I want less offset and this would effectively accomplish that while still providing the forgiveness I need.

                            I think the only real knock is the occasional “hot” ball from the sweet spot, but the pluses outweigh the minuses by a long way, IMO with these irons. Granted, I don’t game them, but I did have a good discussion about them with the guy who designed them.
