    Thanks for all the comments so far. I started this thread because I was considering moving to the P790s, and now that's exactly what I'm doing. I am a high spin player and love the results I am getting so far from the 5 and 7 irons (the others are on order).<br />
    <br />
    It's funny to hear people talking about hitting P790 8-irons 200 yards. I think that's probably either BS or a mis-read. (Or those golfers have a strange combination of super-low spin and high clubbed speed).<br />
    <br />
    Anyway, for me, I can consistently hit the 5-iron to 195 and rolling out to 205, so I am able to retain the stopping power on a 200-plus club. Similarly, the 7-iron goes to about 168 and stops at around 175. Adequate distances and plenty of spin left to keep it under control. With my old forged clubs (of course, I miss the feel), I would practically be backing up a 7-iron on the green with all my spin. (My GC results have been consistent, BTW, no fliers or distance control issues. Amazingly consistent, actually, in part because they are so forgiving on off-center strikes).<br />
    <br />
    I still need to work on my strike to keep my spin in the right zone, but P790s have been an equipment breakthrough for me so far. I never thought I would play "power" irons. I LOVE forged. But for my swing/delivery, these give me the best results.<br />
    I agree high launch/high spin guys these irons are real good<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    What about low/mid flight high spin guys? <br />
    <br />
    I am thinking of going to club champion as my spin numbers continue to be an issue. A trackman I have access to the only one I remember is my 7 iron. Ball speed was upper 120's to 130, launch angle was around 15* and my spin was in the 7600 range. This has been similar with most shafts I have tried, and really become an issue since switching from my J40 CB's to the Srixon 765's. My long irons in the 565's are low enough launching to have not been an issue. I am seeing some major ballooning with my short irons into the wind, and crazy weird distances down wind.<br />
    <br />

    You Sir might be the guy the PX shaft was designed for. Launches higher than other shafts in the category (eg Dynamic Gold) but is lower spinning. Make sure you try that shaft!

    Near the end of last year I was on the course and it was pretty much deserted so I had brought out several hybrids to try. I picked an elevated green some distance out and hit different hybrids into it. Just for the **** of it I pulled my P790 5 iron out smoked three shots at the pin. These shots just bored through the cold wind and upon my arrival at the green, they had stopped faster than the hybrids. I was so shocked the hybrids will be sold this summer and I purchased a P790 4 iron.

    I’m 6 months in and have some minor chatter but nothing terrible. It’s really light and I don’t baby them too much.

    Not bad at all. Thanks for taking the time to do that.

    P790s have a great finish to them. They still look good in any used condition.

    No problem. My heart wanted to get the black finish but my head said to go with the chrome.

    I went with P770's and I don't have any regrets - way more consistent, easier to shape and better feel for me.

    Walk or ride? Thank you for the photos. The faces seem to look fine. The club chatter is likely about the same as most Forged heads.

    I really loved them in the 4-7. I liked the 8-P, but they did feel like they came from two different sets of clubs.

    Been hating mine lately. Switched back to my MP15s for a bit and then found my RSi 2’s. Not sure why I went away from them. Consistent with no surprises. Well see when the weather gets better but for now they’re staying in the bag<br />

    They're back! Swapped out the KBS C-Taper Lite shafts for KBS Tour 120's and am loving them again! Straighter with a higher ball flight.
