This excites me. I'm always trying to get my irons to fly higher.I have 6 rounds in now with the 770's. Any complaints I could offer would be minor. They look good, they feel good, they score good.
The long irons have been weapons from minute one and invaluable playing a combined 14,600 yards the last 2 rounds. I wouldn't call them hot, but across two different shafts they've had a pretty ideal launch and spin profile for great carry and controllable landing. I'm on the lower spin side of things in the long irons so I've been really impressed with this. I can't say I've heard someone gripe about a ballooning flight with a 3 or 4 iron often, so I don't imagine someone on the spinner side of things taking much issue with anything there. I've ditched my P790 UDI 2 for the P770 3 iron 1 strong without skipping a beat. I prefer the smaller head and the feel is much better.
Mid irons much of the same. Easy to get up and work both ways through the 7. Good distance for the lofts and pretty darn forgiving. Should be for the design, but it's impressed me for their size. You can tell what they are when you hit them too, but they're more soft that I expected.
I start to notice flight, feel off the face, and leading edge more as I get into the 8 iron, but this is where the minor in minor gripes comes in, and I have them about the majority of clubs in this number range because I've become really particular. Unless you have a pretty strong AofA or late release I don't think the soles would be worth worrying about much. Same with the flight for most. I kind of live on keeping the scoring clubs out of the air long though, and that's where I fight them just a little. CG maybe, but they still seem to want to get up and it seems to take a little more to keep them down. Low on the face doesn't feel quite as good as some peers, and I'd love a little prewear. I have no idea how small a percentage of golfers would or should care about that stuff, but I imagine it pretty small. And in the end I can still hit the shots I want for the most part. Comes down more to how it feels doing it I guess. Like I said, extremely minor.
I'll still go for a combo when the others show up, but I really like them overall. They're just a whole lot of fun to play. Flight, distance, and spin have been crazy consistent so far, and I've had some of my top scoring rounds of the year. Who doesn't love that?
My 770s will be 2* weak as well.
