  • I was custom fit for a set in November. Only played a couple rounds last year before winter came, and 4 in Jan on a trip. Now have played 20 or so rounds with these this year.



    The 790’s are amazing. Coming from MP59’s, I have picked up a ton of distance and these things feel great. My “miss” is a slight push/fade that is plenty playable. Others have discussed it, but these are borderline TOO long. For a while I was a little worried as I was hitting some crazy long stuff from time to time, but think I am getting real comfortable with them now. My 6 is longer than my 5 hybrid, and I have a large gap between my PW and my Vokey 52 that I need to sort out, but overall these things are amazing. I attribute most of my improvements to working hard on my iron play over winter, but certainly feel here irons also have helped too.



    Highly recommend trying them out.
  • If anything, these have avoided the hook miss more than any iron I’ve ever hit.
  • Bought a 3 iron and gonna test it out. Its a couple degrees stronger than my current 3 iron, MP59s, so might bag them both. Like hitting iron off the tee when I can.

    thanks all for the feedback re the hooks.



    Probably lie or new swing.

    I'll have the lie checked out asap as my new swing has a different angle of attack I would think.

    After that will go see my pro.



    Oh yeah. first eagle of the season. Had to share with people who appreciate it. LOL

    Played over the weekend and my 6 iron from 185 out hit green with barely any roll out (maybe 5-7 feet from the massive divot it left). Not sure why so many people worry about lofts + stopping power. The descent angle on these things does more than enough. Keep your weak lofts and I'll play what gives me massive distance, good stopping power, and decent forgiveness in an iron that doesn't look like a Transformer.

  • ^^ Maybe just me, but massive distance and super high shots aren't something I'm concerned about, or really want, in an iron.



    I think these irons do look sweet tho! Reason I ordered a 3 iron to test out. (Would be a 2 iron loft in my set)

    These just don't do it for me. Think I'm to mentally fixated to ping. I like the looks but didn't care for the feel and swingweight felt I little heavy for me. I play everything at d0 and these feel quit a bit heavier. Have them with upgraded recoil 95 F4 up in the classified if anyone interested 6 7 9 still in plastic others used 1 round 1 range.

    I've noticed that the 790's do feel a bit heavier than my CF16's but to me Im getting things dialed in and like it being a heavier SW. The long irons are so easy to hit as I've never used a 4 iron so much of the Tee and was quite surprised as to how far and straight it goes. Just today I hit a bad drive and push it to the right and had 220 yds to to the flag and got it on the green with my 4 iron with ease. Im pretty excited to do that being 62 and playing with tendentious in my elbow. So with that being said my swing is off right now but my GIR have improved as my misses carry without much lose of distance and just a slight push still making it to the green.

    Were you fitted for the 790s as I would never give up on a set of irons after only 1 round and 1 range time. Some people can adjust to just about any club out there for me sometimes I can but usually I try to remain patient as it's 90% the Indian not the arrow. Coming from PINGS I can see some adjustment time as I think PINGS are wonderful irons but depending on which ones your were playing the will be more offset with the PINGS. I never thought I could hit anything but PINGS for the longest time but that all changed over the years of experimenting and being patient. Good luck in your adventure and hope you find what your able to hit the best.

    I'm moving the other way. I play clubs at +1" and Ping couldn't deliver at below D6. The dot serial light 790 heads get me to D2 at +1" with Nippon 950s so you should easily be able to get a build at standard length with Recoils to D0

    Anyone ordered a set with PX LZ 6.0 standard length and MCC standard grip?



    What did your swing weight get?



    My preferred choice of shaft is DG 120 x100, and since the standard shaft in these heads are DG 105 I assume there wouldn’t be a problem to get them to D2 with DG 120? Anyone playing DG 120?



    Coming from a long story of Titleist I’m amazed you can’t order a specific set with exact swing weight. All my Titleist 718 sets have been spot on D2 even though I have order different shafts and lengths for all of them.

    I love my irons however they just came out with the black ones and can’t help but to want those now. Will the black finish last?

    If I were you I would just assume (and tell people) the black finish doesn't last so I wouldn't be kicking myself over and over. Cause they look pretty sweet!

    It’s not the same, but I ordered 5.5 LZ and the standard grips. All the Swing weights were right on. D2 for every club and D3 for the PW and AW

    They may look **** but, imho, TM went the cheap way with the finish and in the end, they will look like my Black RTX wedge, ****. PVD used in the black P790s is nowhere near as lasting as the DBM in the Maltbys, or Cobra Forged Tecs. I'll stick with the chrome and save some money.

    Thanks! I currently game ie1 which do have a little more offset then p790. I gamed the s55 prior. No I wasn't fitted I was just able to get a good deal on them and loved the looks and read great things about them. I probably did not give them enough of a chance but didnt want any additional marks because I had it in my head I was going to sell them. I can definitely see why people like them they just weren't for me.

    Order a set at +1" length. That will ensure they use their lighter dot serial number heads. Then just get the 1" cut off and they will be no heavier than D0.

    I’d wager that the % of people who are very pleased with these irons is over 90%. Like someone stated before, the majority of those who are happy aren’t going to go out of their way to voice their opinions.



    I don’t understand why people on this site get buttsore over lofts and if a 790 7 iron goes as far as their previous 6 iron; you’re able to use a shorter length iron which will yield better control and have it go longer distances. This is exactly what I’ve experienced. My iron play hasn’t been better since gaming these. For me (which is a mental thing) I’ve been putting smoother swings and better tempos together bc in my mind I know the club has a** behind it. Comparing them to my Srixon 745/765s, the srixons have that buttery feel and the 790 have a soft yet explosive feel to them....it’s addicting. Distance was never a problem for me but as stated before, I feel like I have better control. No problems stopping on greens here as well.



    Wish they didn’t come out with the black version....I love the looks of them.

    Ok, so I just got my 790 4 and 5 irons. I comboed them with the 770 6-PW. I only just received the 790 the day before yesterday and got to play a rain shortened round yesterday. Verdict on the 790 long irons....WOW....lots of fun.

    I found them to feel pretty good (better than I thought they would feel), look great in the address position and the ball flight is perfect for my eye. I have std Ctapers in mine. I hit a 5 iron from 219 into a par 5 yesterday to about 15 feet past the middle pin. In the very next hole I nuked he 4 iron off a par 4 tee that was just as far as some of the best 20 apex hybrid shots I’ve hit there. On my last hole (before stopping the round due to rain), I hit the 4 iron from 233 into a par 5 and was only about 15 feet short of the pin. In my VERY brief time with the 4 and 5, I found them to be excellent. Excited to have them in the bag. Cant wait to play my home course, as they will be deadly for me there.

    Second round today, not as sweet as the 73 last week but a 77. We are having a record setting heat wave here in Los Angeles, today, the 110 heat just killed me as well as the many lip out, burn the hole birdie putts that could have made that little difference.



    Anyway, I finally finished re-gripping all my P790s with the Grip Master perforated grips. I can no longer blame the grip for my error shots but I didn't need to. I had a really nice iron day, played some long irons, they are just SO easy to hit and fly pretty straight as well. I don't think I ever went right with any of my irons. Distance is a tad better than my best irons, I really think I found that nice combo for me: a softer flex Modus 3 105 shaft (versus what I normally play, a stiff) and with a 1* stronger loft to control the launch. Bingo.



    I had so much fun and confidence with the irons now. No regrets coming back from 6 months of One Length irons for sure, my middle and long iron game is back!
