    I noticed that as well. Seems like a typo or a bad choice.

    They look great, but a 19* 4 iron and 5.5* gaps at the scoring end? It's a no for me dog.

    That's on the Ti models. Looks like the regular 790's have the same loft as the first gen.

    Beautiful looking clubs but I'd have to redo my wedges and my new U85 4i doesn't work with those lofts so that's a no for me unfortunately.

    Can't wait to see what other shaft options are available. Not happy about DG 105 as the stock shaft.

    Ugh. I guess if you pretend each club is X-1 and buy the AW you could live with the gapping.

    The post above might be confusing - those are not the lofts of the new P790's. As the poster references, that screen grab is for the 790 Ti, which appears to be Taylormade's ultra high price ultra high tech PXG/Epic Forged competitor.

    Why dont they just stamp the 19* 4 as a three and then run it to PW? I know it really does not matter in the end but it just seems silly that everything is now 4-AW instead of 3-PW as it was up until 2-3 years ago..

    is it me or I don't see any significant difference from the gen 1 version....maybe the feel of these is better but I felt like the first ones were really harsh...also distance control was a factor for me..

    Comment redacted (although I confess I was hoping they'd gap them like the p760 or p770). Screen grab from TM's site for posterity.

    I'm all over the marketing BS from this type of club, but it's a spin thing - not hot spots.

    Luckily I got to demo this club today at a local store. I was hitting a 7 iron 175-180 consistently, but out of nowhere hit a 200 yard flier. Didn't even feel like I was swinging that hard and didn't see anything outrageous going on with the spin. I wasn't able to reproduce it, but also don't think it was an issue with the launch monitor. Definitely will need more investigation..

    I cannot wait to try these out. I have been playing the P790 with S400 shafts since they came out and I have not had any issues with strange fliers or inconsistencies. Once i figured out my yardages and adjust my lofts to have my gapping under control they have been as consistent as my beloved J15CB's but with more forgiveness. Before i get roasted, I am not saying this does not exist but I just have not seen that with my current set and will get a head to head battle as I can get my hands on some on the course. Now, the lighter shafts (like this 105 that are stock) have created inconsistencies that just dont work for my swing. Once i put my S400 in the clubs have been phenomenal.

    It was an issue with the p790 first gen also. seems the speedfoam might be too juiced up at times. do you think it is enough of an update to switch from gen1 t gen 2?

    I just tried out the new ones with the S400's they are nice. I couldn't tell much difference between the old and new but they are a very nice set of irons.

    You would end up with a set of irons that were .5 to .75 inches short vs standard length

    The 38 degree 7 iron is a typo and should be 28 degree, simple critical thinking should have allowed you to make the correction. Complaints about the number stamped on the iron fall on deaf ears; the six iron spec is a strong 4 iron to my past sets, but if you read the article, the launch angle will be close to the traditional lofted irons with more ball speed for a greater range of shot peak, and a increased angle of drop into the green increasing the stopping power to place shots closer to hole locations from longer distances; a double improvement. My tourney set has a 49 degree Pw, and a 29 degree 5 iron. I have been playing with a set of Titleist MBT set and see the overall benefits to switch over to my tourney set. This set will play for 4 more years, and then it will be time to investigate a replacement set with a incremental improvement as technology advancements are so small that the engineers measure them with special equipment that show only 0.7 yards increase each year. My MBT's are 716 iteration and unless I wear out the faces, shopping in 2024 will compile enough improvement to see a actual improvement over my MBT's.

    Like the looks but after seeing the TXG review these are almost too hot. At some point you're going to end up with a gap in the bag.... I'm all for helping golfers get some distance while giving good launch and land angle, but I really don't need to carry my 7i 185 because I'll either end up with huge gap to the 8i, or 8 to 9... 9 to PW, or the more likely case of PW to GW.

    When I owned 790's, I was hitting the PW out to 145 but then my bladed GW was only going around 120. Shots of 125-130 were insanely hard to get close as I either had to try to overpower a GW or dial back the PW. Both cases were usually poor results. I'd rather hit my 7i a normal 160-165 and keep my scoring clubs a little closer gapped.

    Where I think this will be huge though is in the UDI department or long iron area.
