    Looks great! I'm not a huge fan of the back cavity of the iron but at address they look awesome!

    the 790s are very interesting, plus a whole lot better looking cosmetically than the screw collection PXG, awful visual at address long irons AP3, Callaway Epic Pros ugly cavity. Like they mentioned the COR (dead feeling sorry I mean "soft") killing TPE. Love it when all the PXG cultists claim everyone is copying their design (TM had foam filled decades before PXG was even thought about, PXG looks strangely like the S55s...how did that happen, advertise as a forging when only the body is forged...the face is formed, not forged, guess would be ok if you hit the ball with they back of the club, and then lastly and most impressive priced these clubs higher than any real premium forging). Looking forward to trying these as the AP3 (demo only), PXG (yes owned a set so not a picture critic..brother or cousin have them now with no feedback), Callaway Epic Pros look almost as bad as PXG in the bag..i200 (sad attempt at thin face technology) all lack anything that could be mistaken for feel, although all have 1-2 club advantage over regular clubs due to jacked up lofts. Will try the Mizuno MMC, but Mizunos no scrap liberal use of lead weights has always been a deal breaker.



    The 790s have a reasonable price even with graphite, where the others (save ping) are a joke.

    Love the look and the concept.



    Serious question--wouldn't the foam "wear out" or lose it's physical spring after time or weather or lots of strikes? The foam shown in the Shields review looked kind of delicate almost.

    Not a TM fan by any means, and actually dislike them for several reasons, but have to admit, those look fantastic. Would love to check those out. Wish the gapping was a little closer in the shorter irons, though. Most people don't need distance in their short irons, at least for those looking at this, one would think.

    It certainly is going to be an interesting Fall this year. So much new technology coming out. Pro I know said his shop stopped carrying TM due to how many times they change product. Shop actually loses money trying to sell the stuff where in 6 mos its outdated. You buy these irons in September and then by March they have a new model of the same club. He said he'll let the Golf Galaxy's of the world sell TM. I'd try these clubs out but probably stay true to Titleist or Mizuno.

    so are these more in line with previous RSi2's and PSI irons? Lofts seems like they would be the replacement

    I wonder what the maximum lie adjustment is on these babies. They look beautiful. I hope to give them a try.

    Went to a demo day today and hit several irons. TM M2 I didn't like, M1 wasn't much better. Then the rep pulls out a 790 7 iron and hands it to me. One swing and i am in love! Rep says they will retail in the $1200 range, quite a bit over my budget but wow I really want a set of these irons


    Did you hit the 770? If so, can you compare 770 to 790?

    People complaining or constantly bringing up the lofts clearly don't understand that these irons launch high.



    They're strong lofted to counteract this.



    It's not that hard to grasp.



    It's a Players-Distance Iron. The 7 will launch as high as a 7 but likely go as far as your 6. It's called product development.



    And they aren't even that strong lofted...



    Before you've had to typically choose if you wanted a Players Iron (thin top line, sleek design, punishing on mis-hits, traditional lofts) or if you wanted a forgiving distance iron (thick top line, bulky, cumbersome, very forgiving, strong lofts). These appear (with limited reviews so far) to be all of the pros of each category, with little to no cons that I can see.



    They're essentially PXG 0311's (without the gawdy screws) at a price point we can all get behind - what isn't to love about that?

    Meh, the discussion has gotten stale from both sides. At this point, I just go with the flow. When I see a 45* or 43* pw, I see a 50* or 48* wedge as the next club and remember all the great shots I've hit with both of those lofts. If they go through your preferred window, all is good.

    I can't wait to give the 3 iron a try and possibly a 2 UDI. I like what TM has done with their iron setup and love the look of the 790 as well as the 730s. I'm glad I already have my 750s so I don't try those blades. I've learned to love not working hard to hit blades like the p730s. I kind of like that the 3 UDI is 19 so it acts like a 2 iron with the possiblity of having a 17* 2 UDI. TM good job. Love what you've done from the p790 through p730s.

    My thoughts exactly. They need to release the new UDI 2-iron.



    I'm still waiting for the 46/48 degree milled grind wedges as well.

    It's too bad they couldn't call the "Speed Foam" by it's real name, which is Boost.

    I love that the graphite shafted length is still a 38" 5i. Not 5" to get to decent swingweight.



    Stock steel is 37.75" 5i at D2 as well.



    Means heavier heads?

    I've watched three reviews on YouTube with Trackman data and all three gents had an unusually low peak height with these irons. Rick Shiels hit one anomaly with the 4 iron that went high but he called it a misread. Maybe they didn't need to make these irons strong lofted since they're not flying as high.

    790 is pure. Might just have to get a 3i and 4i to replace my driving hybrid.

    Yup was just referring to the back of the club shape design basically looks like 0311's






    Yes, PXG copycat design with forged back, thin face, internal filling, blade look..........




    this tech was around a long time before pxg. actually they are just re releasing old tech of theirs. anyone remember these "foam filled' irons.

    The 790 reminds me more of the ICW line more that the burner midsize. The tech and manufacturing processes have come along since them. This looks promising.
