    I can’t brag on these enough. Changed my game. I hit so many great iron shots with these today.

    If referring to the P790 irons. No. They have a 45* PW.

    Hot ****. I need to check my set out then, I'm getting 15-20yd gap between pw and 48.

    No iron set will be all things to all people. Aside from the head, many other variables exist too such as shaft, length, lie, grips, etc. Seems clear to me the P790s work great for many, including myself. If the P790s (or insert any other major OEM model) don’t work for you, it isn’t because they inherently have gapping issues, are too hot, etc. Poor results are due to only one of two things: set build isn’t appropriate for you, or you aren’t putting a good swing on them.

    But all that said I switch gear all the time because it is really fun to try all the new stuff and then “nerd out” with all my other “golf nerd” friends. So I’m not knocking this thread or posts, just feel this needs to be said. And I check this thread daily to read all the banter because I find it incredibly entertaining to read, so there is always that....

    Anyone having gapping issues after the 790 pw?



    my existing gap wedge (s) 50 or 52 are almost 20 yards shorter than carry on pw......



    thinking of bending the pw weaker and gap stronger....



    anyone else experience?

    thanks




    No gapping issues here.



    I play a 50/54/58 setup.



    I suggest checking the lie and lofts of the P790 set. Several folks within this thread have mentioned their lofts being off a few degrees.



    I got mine checked and only one of my P790 heads was off by 1*.




    Thanks

    I have checked the lofts though and they are correct



    issue is from 45 to 52 gap is too much - bent the pw to 46 and the gap to 51, but still have 20 yards, sometimes more

    then to 56 and another 15 yards



    debating whether to go pw (45), then 48(bent to 49), 52 (bent to 53), 56, 60



    5 wedges seems like overkill though and I am likely just getting too cute with the whole exercise......



    I will likely just keep tweaking the pw and 52 till I even out the gaps best I can



    bottom line is that these 790's are flippin Long!




    i was having a similar issue but now i go pw 45, gw 50, sw 55 and lw 60



    this seemed to fix the issue

    I now have 3 rounds on mine. I love them. I switched from a set of SLDR irons with stiff graphite shafts to the P790 with NS 105 regular stafts. The are about 1/2 to 1 club longer. they are clearly handed for me to hook. Great clubs so far.

    Gave these one more round. I just want these to work, but they don't. Flew 4 more greens today, then hit an 8 iron on a 167 yard par 3 and stuck it ( that is an appropriate distance for me with an 8 iron). Had a 170 yard approach, he hit the 8 iron, and lost the ball in a creek behind the green.



    Glad these seem to be working out for so many, but I find these the most frustrating irons I've ever hit. Will be moving on to i200 or 718 CB.




    Found exactly the same with mine. Now looking at going back to Apex cf16 or i200, not sure which!!

    For those of you having distance control issues, are the issues throughout the set or mainly in the shorter irons? I ask because I'm strongly considering looking into a P790 and P770 or P750 combo set.

    I’ve had mine for 6 rounds now. I’ve had more 2s on par 3s in the last few rounds than I can ever remember in such a small sample size. I had two 2s on the front nine the other day and one of those holes I NEVER birdie. Distance control for me has been outstanding. They go the distance I want them to go. I can hit them high, low, draw and fade. I am really a believer. I have only had one “jump” on me, but I also know I hit it lower on the face than normal. I just am not seeing the crazy distance gaps some are complaining about. I will say my set were built by True Spec with frequency matched shafts, I did not do a gapping session and some of the lofts were bent a little weak (I was nervous about distances I would get at altitude). Coming from years of players cavity backs and blades these irons have made golf fun again. The forgiveness is unreal with little loss of distance or direction. I feel like with these new weapons (and the putter I was fitted for) sub 3 handicap is very much achievable this summer.

    Thinking to buy a set of these. Seems like most guys are not comboing them with the 770. Thoughts? Was thinking maybe 4-6 790 and 7-pw 770.



    I’m a low single digit cap, looking to own a set to have some fun with.



    PS: Anyone faming the 3 iron like a hybrid? Thinking to get the 3 iron as well.

    I don't think many people are creating true combo sets like you typically see. Good amount of low handicappers (and pros) putting in only one or two P790 long irons to complete their blade set ups.



    Regarding your hybrid question, I ended up doing that except with my 4... First time I've ever not bagged a 4 iron simply because the P790 5 iron goes as far as my old 3 iron haha. Dropped the 4 iron with a hyrbrid and dropped the 3 iron for a 5 wood. Lots of fun shot in the bag now image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    Now im no single digit cap but I just put in an order for exactly what your describing except I also added the 770 GW. I tested both the 770 and the 790's and with the 7 iron I was getting more distance with the 790's but not enough to make me sway one way or the other. I ended up going with the combo set because I want the control and consistency that I feel is better with the 770 and the extra distance the 790's give in the long irons. From reading others reviews on here it sound like some don't have any issues with fliers which was a concern for me. With my current set ( Callaway steelhead xr pro) this is one of my main complaints. I will get fliers that carry an extra 10 yrds at times and just dont have the control i need on pitch shots. This experience is one of the pain reasons I went with the 770 and not the 790 in the short irons.



    As far as gapping, I haven't received them and hit them yet but i had the 7 bent 1 deg. strong, the 6 bent 1.5 deg. weak and 5 1 deg weak. I based this off of taylormade's recommended chart but will have to see how they blend.

    i agree with the distance increase here

    i just dropped my driving iron (2 - 18') in favour of my 790 4 iron - better height and same carry / similar total - just a better flight overall

    i can only imagine how far the 790 3i could go.......

    Height on these neuters hybrids in my view (hate them anyway to be honest)

    good luck

    I suspect that you have good club head speed. I'm 63 and people like myself with slower club head speed (driver = 85 - 91 mph) just can't generate enough speed to use their longer irons and driving irons. That's why I enjoy using those hybrids and lofted fairway woods.

    How would this help? you have no idea how they swing or what their skill level is. Both those things determine how the ball flight goes.
