    I called earlier today just to see if there is a chance I get my sticks by the weekend. At first she said they went into production yesterday so it would probably be early next week. Then she saw I had 1 day shipping and that it’s possible but to call back Thursday morning to see where things are.

    Just survived a HOT round in Chandler AZ at Cattails at Whirlwind (a Troon Golf Property) and was the first official round with my P790's. I am giving them an A+ for the distance improvement over my previous JPX900 Forged irons. These play a good 1/2 to full club anger and could be the shafts fit me better a bit. I went from PXLZ6.0 in the 900's to Modus 130S straight in the P790's and loving the feel. I think as much as they feel and sound great, I was most surprised with how forgiving they were on slightly off center toe strikes! Some more range time and rounds will really dial these in for me on my quest to get into single digit handy.




    Of course none of that is actually true we've been told it's literally not possible to play golf with the P790's

    I hear you! Wish it was a dream, as it was HOT A F out there! Coming from North East Ohio, its going to take some time getting used to not only the bermuda rough but the shear heat which is making me question the goto Golf Pride Tour Wrap 2Gs I have played for years. I did notice during the round that on a few throttled shots, I did feel my perspiration a bit and obviously took away the 100% confidence in the shot with the longer irons. Other than that its all there. These things are so forgiving, long, did I say long, and sound awesome on pure strikes. Plus they just look gorgeous as I recieved numerous compliments from staff and my playing partners yesterday. I really highly recommend them and as of right now, they are the irons that are staying int he bag over my MP53's and JPX900 forged! Nice work TM or PXG or whom ever developed this technology.

    I like the P790 but am exchanging them for P770. The distance is nice, but my distance was all over the place with the P790. I'd hit 10 shots at my local indoor range that uses GC2 with my 7 iron and I'd hit 5 shots at a distance I'd expect (168-172). I'd also hit one that carried 180 and another one at 162. According to the data, my clubhead speed didn't vary much and my strikes were consistently center-toe. Attack angles were all similar as well. I took a P770 7 iron and hit 10 shots and all of them were consistent. I carried them about 160-165 and much straighter. For me, I think predictability becomes more valuable which is why I'm making the switch.

    I live in SC where it’s hot and humid to boot. Sometimes I start out with a leather glove and end up with my rain glove shortly after. They last longer too. The sweat severely deteriorates the life of a premium glove.

    Especially the really nice, thin Cabretta ones. They soak through instantly, stretch out of shape quickly when wet and basically go to **** in a handbasket after just a couple really sweaty rounds.

    Spin definitely can be reduced from the mat by itself. Even using the CCE mat can lead to -300 to -500 rpm. If i use my GC2 outdoors my spin number is noticeably higher.

    I am kicking around a black 790 3i with black DG105/S300, just for fun.




    ... I have a P790 3 iron with an Even Flow Blue hy shaft and it works well. As a 100 mph smooth swinger, I prefer the original Udi mostly because I was comfortable with it playing it along side my Cobra Forged Tours. But I think it just comes down to a personal preference.

    I was a long time Ping iron player. I5 to G25 to iE1 to G400 to G700 back to iE1 and now with P790's.



    For me and my game they have been nothing short of spectacular. Roughly the size of the iE1 with the forgiveness of the G25. Feel and sound have been great and the added length in the 5-7 have been a benefit. I hit the 8-P a bit further than the iE1's but nothing that has created an issue as I have played enough rounds with them that I know what to expect.



    The only "fliers" that I have had really have been in instances where I believe most any iron would/could potentially create a flyer.



    In most instances, I hit them about 1 club longer in the 5-7 and then it tapers down to about 1/2 club longer than I hit the iE1's in the short irons.



    I do appreciate the more standard length of the P790's as the G400's and G700's both have 5 irons that are 1/2" longer.



    Still trying to figure out the AW though as its the only one that I don't care for.



    Have a Ping Glide 50 on the way and may just play that and get rid of the AW.



    I'm beyond the honeymoon period with them and have really enjoyed how they perform for my swing.

    ... I spent 6 weeks playing everyday inPhoenix this past M arch/April and absolutely loved Whirlwind although I played my P790's on Devils Claw. You really need to dial in distance on an unfamiliar course and the P790's were spot on. Hotting our 2nd shot into 18 a Bobcat just sauntered past the back of the green like he/she was out for a stroll. Just a visual treat the entire round.

    Thanks for sharing. We wanted to play Devils Claw but it is undergoing a renovation of the bunkers currently according to the pro shop. Being the first time I played Cattails, no shot looked unrealistic and having the best xtra firepower confidence of the 790’s was a delight. Looking forward to getting a few in the near future in on Devils Claw, hopefully we will get the Bobcat sighting. Too cool brotha

    Yet you avatar is a set of Mizuno irons. How long until the P790’s are avatar worthy?




    I bet never, the dude from Avatar probably hits it a ton and has no need for help from a distance iron.

    I like the P790 but am exchanging them for P770. The distance is nice, but my distance was all over the place with the P790. I'd hit 10 shots at my local indoor range that uses GC2 with my 7 iron and I'd hit 5 shots at a distance I'd expect (168-172). I'd also hit one that carried 180 and another one at 162. According to the data, my clubhead speed didn't vary much and my strikes were consistently center-toe. Attack angles were all similar as well. I took a P770 7 iron and hit 10 shots and all of them were consistent. I carried them about 160-165 and much straighter. For me, I think predictability becomes more valuable which is why I'm making the switch.




    Can you recall what the other data variables were. According to Flightscope optimizer, the broad sensitivities for an average 7 iron are



    1,000rpm spin change = 4 yards carry

    2 mph ball speed change = 3 yards

    2 degrees launch = 1mph as long as launch was sensible to start with so not much effect



    So I'm guessing that anyone seeing big carry variances (like your 18 yards) must be down to both spin and ball speed changes as you'd need a combo along the lines of 2,500 RPM and 5mph ball speed variance for that. I'm a mid-high spin player who is also a digger and have had zero distance control issues with the 790's and also found the same with the i500's - I had both of them on a launch monitor for a long session yesterday. Maybe a sweeper who is also a lower spin player might be more inclined to get one that is a groove or two lower on the face and that is impacting on spin and ballspeed?

    I haven’t posted anything on this site since about 2008...... the hate these irons are getting is biased towards the brand name on them. If they had a missy logo things would be different... however, golfwrx forgive me ... that brand was most relevant back in 1999.... ( they make amazing irons) tour dominance?..... look I’m not a “stick” but I was a stand out junior golfer back when mizzy blades were the “thing” even the re-stamped thing.. I can drop names from a old school tour builder that rhymes with a famous guitar company... I’m old (miles not years) broken combat vet who at one time... the late Lee Elder said had “it”. I wasted “it” after my time in the military. However, I had enough to play NAIA golf in OR/ I competed in the event mentioned on this site with the top college players.... my score was very very high ... A testament to the play of the Canadian player who shot a 4ball scramble score of 62 on that narrow OR coast track. My point is ... I’m not a “stick” I am a “has been” that can still break par ( wine-valley in WA, D1and D2 schools present) I had a low 2nd round score (70 par 72) on the back end of walking 36. I have a P790 story that will make the hate more angry/ the fan boys happy/ the “others”.... hopefully will go out and try to find what works. This is my 790 story/ love affair/ almost BST story:



    I’m a mid to low spin guy. Played the TP5x / Penta before that .... yes I’m a TM fan boy not by choice ( I rebuilt everything I’ve gotten from TM to fit me) pm me to find out why I stick with TM if you want to know. However, this iron performs if you SPIN IT ENOUGH.... I didn’t change the ball I played it cost me my third club championship at Springfield Golf Club in OR... I don’t say that in a way that would be disrespectful to the champion or his performance... it is only from the perspective of hind-sight ... I could have made more puts... he could have too.. However not having ENOUGH SPIN is a bad thing. I recently made a ball change, the 300-600 rpms have made the a incredible difference for me. Yes I gained a clubish in distance with the iron change... does it really matter .... no. After the correct club/ball/shaft combo everything works.... I can hit 3 yd carry gaps with my irons.... I just can’t hit fairway with a putter off the tee.... the take away is this.... these irons don’t have hot spots , dynamic vs static loft +spinrate does..



    Two sets both built by will @thepeoplesclubs old gamers : RSI TP (tour issue) 2*strong ( vs std for that model) 4-9 w UST proto 125 x softstep +1” with a old udi 3i ( nunchuck iron shaft) also +” / TM 790 3-9 1* weak 3i with the same nunchuck and 4-9 same shaft as above.... before the ball change from tp5x to b330 ... ie exact gamer ball plus almost the same build the 790s were all over in distance... high nuckles that flew ... sometimes I hit the 9i 180 carry .... none sim actual real world golf course data. My driver SS has huge variations .. 105-125 ... ( high side verification from a teacher with top end equipment in the Eugene OR area) my current distance chart will follow after my rant.. if you get the 790s dump the PW ... if you have one throw it out.. imo.. get whatever wedge your playing get the strongest one they offer and bend it 1.5 strong... ie I have last years TM wedge in 47* actual is probably 45.5. I also ported it myself and added weight high in the face to balance it to the rest of the set...

    Take away: these irons are hot. Distances ARE CONSISTENT with the correct spin rates...

( both are great clubs) let’s be real online warriors... we don’t really hit it 295 in the air every time... I doubt the golfers average is much over 280 in the “stick” club. I drop and stop with these irons into the 5 ... with hard baked out forestfire conditions in Oregon currently. Distance gaps are larger yes.... instead of one chokedown spot I have two for most clubs... (I played KZG ZO blades back in the day with better distance gaping then mizzy could ever produce). I can still hit 3-5 carry gaps honestly if I practice or play more then twice a week I think I can get it down to 2-3. GET FITTED!!! This iron may not work for you. However it is a great OMG forgiving club that is WORKABLE high low left and right... it is fast off the face and, with enough SPIN it flat out performs... trust me I almost gave up on mine.

    ... You see what you want to see. My avatar is 11 different irons and only one of them is a MIzuno. MP63, AP2, RBZ Tour, Nike Forged Combo, 588TT's, Lynx MC Forged and Cobra Forged Tours along with Scratch, Bettinradi, Vokey and Harry Taylor wedges. All irons I own and the picture was taken before I picked up my P790's and Honma 737's.

    ... Good stuff paul.smoot. but I think "stick" is certainly relative. Most of the guys I play with think at age 65 and because I regularly shoot under par (on pretty easy tracks) I should be on the Champions Tour, which is a nice compliment but most definitely laughable. Playing with a mini tour guy and the #1 player on his D1 squad in Orlando last January I was clearly a hack. I remember just nutting a hybrid to a nice pitch range from 247 while from the same distance the mini tour guy flew a 4 iron with a slight cut around the trees guarding the front to pin high and the D1 player dropped a 4 iron over a lake and a bunker guarding the right side of the green from 239 to a few feet.

    Outside of the personal stuff thrown out this has been a fascinating thread for me. So many times with equipment I tend to question myself, and I wanted the 790s to work for me because they are magic for so many. It seems pretty clear - if you spin a "normal" 7 iron over 6000, these are magic, if you spin it 5000-6000, they are great, if you're spinning it in the 4000's you could have some issues with consistent distances (again, not saying this as a rule, just as a working theory). For me, I am actually taking lessons to improve my swing path to hopefully get a higher spin rate and these next year when they are probably replaced by something else, will be in my bag once they are the right fit for me. Right now the Srixons end up being a better fit.
