    That's exactly what I was fitted for, and have. They are sweet shafts for sure. I'm selling these irons, just deciding if I will pull the shafts because I like them so much and paid $75 a piece.



    If you are interested, shoot me a DM.




    I’m still on the fence at the moment but was just trying to see if someone could give me their thoughts on the shafts. Worth the added cost?




    My thought was if a fitter said they gave me the numbers, and I was professionally fit, then get them. Otherwise I'm wasting time.

    I completely agree and I trust the guy that did the fitting. I just wanted to get someone’s opinion on the shafts because the nippons gave me similar numbers but I just loved the feeling on the Obans on the shots I hit with them.

    When I winced at the price of the Obans, my fitter said the Nippon pro 105 x was the next best thing. I almost did that, but decided to go with the Obans. Who knows.

    Just got a set and man these things are a lot smaller than I thought! I’m coming from a set of JPX EZ forged. I hope I can get some similar performance out of these.

    I've been hitting these at my club with DG 105's against my 565's with C-taper lite's. I'm indifferent right now on which I like better. I think the 565's feel better, but the 790's are more appealing. I really don't need new irons because the 565's have been awesome, but the ho in me wants the 790's.

    I agree! I get confused with all these people commenting they are “big” compared to this iron, or “chunkier” than that iron....lol

    I wouldnt call them big or chunky but in comparison to a traditional blade they are bigger. In design they have to be bigger in order to have room to fill the hollow head with speed foam. If you are thinking this head is a traditional blade than you are looking at the wrong club.

    I got a set just after they released and I was coming from a set of Mizuno JPX900 forged and for me, the 790’s weren’t as forgiving as those and they demanded a better swing to produce good results. I got rid of them and moved to a set of ping g400’s as they’re much more suited to my 10 handicap.

    Yeah it’s all relative. Compared to a blade they’re a tiny bit bigger. For most people these are just intimidating as blades in terms of size. I think the best description would be “player’s iron” size.



    AP2s never really intimidated me but after using some EZ forged for a while I was like whoa these are kind of small. And to me the P790 might be a little smaller than an AP2 or at least appears to be

    I’ve only played blades for a small time. RAZR MBs. Topline is the only thing that can be considered chunky on this thing. I’m just hoping the mishits can still elevate!

    Just picked up my 790’s this morning and they look tiny compared to my old PING ISI’s.

    Just got a set of 790's for a week now. Hit about a 500 balls with them at the range. I just cant get over the sound of the clubs, especially on the longer irons. They sound i get from them remind me of a TM M2 hybrid. Trying to control distances is not as "seamless" as others I have played.

    I’ve only seen a set in the store but they seemed about the size of the DCI 990 irons I used from 2001-2010.

    i love these irons, but am starting to get homesick for Mizunos like i had in the bag for 15 years before... But they dont make any Mizunos to compete in this kind of iron. Guess i'll have to keep hitting greens.

    I thought the 900 forged made by Mizuno is considered a competitor to p790

    First time ordering tm and they are kind of a joke. Ok not being able to request sw is annoying but I can get that. But I just called in after doing online order asking to put a comment of having recoil logo on shaft not showing or face down and guy was like no we can't do that logo will be up. WTF

    There was a dealer on eBay who had just the PX shafted UDIs left. Must have gotten one of the last ones cause his listing for them is MIA now. ETA is tomorrow!

    Hit mine for 3 rounds now. Like someone mentioned, the face looks pretty small at address (topline looks a bit chunky) and I'm not seeing a ton of added forgiveness coming from AP2.



    But most importantly, distance I'm getting with these clubs are just stupid and inconsistent. I'm seeing big gaps in between clubs, especially in mid-long irons. 7i avg is 194 and 6i 226, then 5i 245.



    I also get these flyers that seem to go a mile and some of these high avgs are a result of that. For 6i, my avg of eight shots was 226 but i had a high of 244 (and a low of 202, which I'm sure was not the best strike but it wasn't bad enough to delete). I have zero desire to hit these distances and these are just too wildly inconsistent for me. With AP2, I was confident that avg strike or flush strike, I was going to be within 10 yards and wasn't going to fly the green into the woods.

    Did you order anything along with the irons? That does seem mighty fast although certainly not impossible.



    Sometimes if you also order a stock wedge or something they will ship it first and the custom clubs later.



    Just a thought...

    Could be the ball you don't have enough backspin across the board on your irons
