    There was a hidden pebble. It happens I suppose. No big deal.

    Gotcha. I saw the scratch. Just wondered if I missed something else. Tools not jewels , man. That scratch just makes it guilt free to add the next one !

    Yeah that’s not worth even flinching about. One wedge practice session especially in sand would make you lose sleep if so!

    From what I’ve heard it’s a combination of what the 790’s offer in terms of distance and forgiveness combined with what the 750’s offer in terms of workability.

    I would be interested to see what those look like. I started with the p790 this year and traded them for p770. I wouldn’t mind seeing what they are as long as they aren’t foam filled.



    I was one of the ones that had huge inconsistencies in distance with the p790. My yardage’s are spot on with p770 and the yardage gap in between clubs is more manageable.

    Wow so those are some top name brands like what is wrong with those CF 16's or that Scotty putter. If you can't get along with all that you are trying to sell then maybe you could use a few lessons instead. Everything you are trying to sell is what would make most people on this forum very happy. Its not the arrow as those are all nice as someone should buy those in no time. I'm curious as to what you plan on buying next to replace what you are selling

    Can confirm the existence of the 760's. Going to fall smack between 770 and 790. Blade length will be reduced, smaller topline, smaller sole, but still speed foam. I also believe there will be iron shafts coming out shortly from Project X that are specifically designed to be in the player's distance package, getting the spin rates and launch angles normalized.

    I polished it with my Dremel. Don’t want to use anything too abrasive. It’s just a tiny eye sore it’ll be fine though.

    Not to doubt you, but I assume you meant between the 750 and 770? At least that’s what I heard a TM rep say yesterday.

    Me too unfortunately. A lack of practice this year made me turn to something a little friendlier. But hot dam...they are sweeet looking sticks.

    I misspoke -- forgiveness wise they fall between those, of course 760 indicates the smaller blade length.

    Well, after spending way too much time reading over 100 pages of this thread, and after a fitting at club champion, the order has been placed for a set of 790s. The funny thing was, these weren't even on the radar heading into the fitting as I currently play MP64s and was interested in the new JPX line (forged or tour). I hit everything (Ping I500, Srixon, Mizuno JPX Tour, Forged, and MP18 MMC and SC) and these were by far the winner. The distance was obviously there due to the lofts, but as a high spin player the reduced spin was the main driver (I am a very high ball hitter so stopping these on the green isn't an issue as my 6 iron was still spinning around 5700-6000 rpm - down from 7000 during the fitting).



    Have seen some of the 760 pics and while they look nice, looking forward to the 790s arriving in mid October. Will keep everyone posted.

    Going to stick with my P790's! I hit them next to the new Mizuno 919F and 919T and I still got a little more distance, a little less spin, and a better decent angle on the sim with the P790's.



    Really the only place where the 919's felt better was in the 8-9-PW...other than the subjective feel, P790 for me were the objective choice and winners. I do think as with any modern iron head...the shaft fitting is key to extract the max performance for each individual. Happy Oct 1

    Same here..... wasn't an improvement according to the numbers on simulator.

    I may look back into the p790's if a combo set with the new 760's pair up well. The p790's long irons are great, but didn't particularly care for the mid-short irons.



    But def looking foward to hitting the new 760's.

    Initial review of 790's-



    I recently bought a set off a member on BST. PX LZ 6.0 shafts. I had demo'd them at TM fitting day and got fitted into them, and then was lucky to find a set to my spec.



    Feel:

    First - I really should have hit more balls during the fitting session. After 2 rounds and 4 range sessions - I really dislike the feel of the clubs. I had an old set of 714AP2s with Ctapers. While the face may be forged, the 790s feel nothing like a forged club. It's just not the same. When struck purely, feedback is so-so - just feels like it's missing something. Perhaps it's the shaft? I dont know. I generally like the feel of the LZs. I wouldnt think they would feel too different from CTapers. My set came with an AW. I'm trying it out vs. my old Vokey SM5. Vokey wins on feel hands down. personal preference - I want a nice feel from my wedge shots. Will probably put the vokey back in the bag.



    Distance:

    Less noticeable at the PW end of the bag (1/2 club). About a club or so longer at the long end, im not really dialed in on distances yet. Im guessing that's because of the increased gap for the lofts as the 4i is 21 deg i think and my AP2 4i is 24. This was one of the primary reasons why i switched over to the 790s. Extra distance from my 4i helps close my gaps, good for teeing off of short par 4s and on 2nd shot par 5s, and long par 3s. Suppose i could have just replaced my long irons with AP3s... lol. As far as "hot spots" that people claim- I just dont see it. Would have to attribute it to swing variance vs. hot spots on clubs. In general pretty consistent (or at least as consistent as my swing is).



    Dispersion:

    Limited time w clubs. Bad shots still bad, good shots really fly. Ball flight is nice. I think it holds true that LZ's are a mid launch/ lowish spin shaft. Seems like my ball flight is higher launch that flattens out. Spin numbers were lower than my AP2s w CTapers. I dunno - can that be true? I thought CTapes were supposed to be lower spin, but this is just what was told to me. Visually it does seem to spin less. Balls still hold greens no problem, so overall I'm fine with it. In general - the clubs DO seem slightly more forgiving then AP2s. But by forgiving - I'm saying slightly off center strikes aren't too bad. Bad swings will be bad swings as I did pull hook a couple of shots during my round with them.



    Overall:

    I'm going to give them another month or so. See if I grow into them and adjust to the non-forged feel. The better distance could override that factor, at least for me. However, if I feel i don't like the harsh feeling i get, or if it starts causing pain I'll go back to the AP2s. The other factor for me will be distance control and consistency. If that's good, I'll probably live with the non-forged feel. As a backup - I'm going to test out the 919 forged to see how they feel.

    I was PXG , then wen to the 790s when they came out- Now back to PXG



    I really did and still like the 790s, I just had an itch and got a great deal on my PXGs - such a good deal, I decided to tinker with shaft options, and have settled on a combo I'm really happy with (Accra GRAPHITE!) - And Ive stuck with them since April.



    I would have ZERO reservations about going back to 790s though. Really nice clubs. I really like how they offer an in-line gap wedge, as well. I wish PXG would in the "T"

    I’ve been playing a buddies P790’s for a few rounds. I am getting to like them. But, I like the PXG Gen 1 XF’s a little better and they are equal in cost. BUT, I was just getting ready to place the order and see PXG just raised the price on Gen 1’s to $195 per club!
  • 2717B2717B Members Posts: 261 ✭✭
    I’ve got about 6 rounds in with my P790’s-C Taper Lite shafts 5-Gap. While I had my low round of the year with them, I don’t seem to get my 5 iron up in the air as high as I would like (the other irons have a very nice ball flight). While the 790’s have less offset than my TA5’s, I’m beginning to wonder if it’s me or that the 790’s have a little less offset. Thoughts?
  • new2g0lfnew2g0lf Members Posts: 3,373 ✭✭
    Went with P790's tried to like them because of the distance and liked the idea I was getting PXG iron technology at a lower price. Then PXG dropped the price on Gen 1, hit them head to head against the P790, now the P790's are in the corner waiting for the PXG's to get delivered. PXG's felt better and didn't have the distance gap between the 7i and 8i for me.



    Lesson learned, the 790's carried me through the season and in the end I saved a lot of money given the price drop of the Gen 1's.
