    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.




    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 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=':)' />




    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.

    ... In WRX nomenclature here are some sick and **** P790 irons. Matching Lamkin UTx grips and Recoil 95 Prototype shafts. But I am old school and don't do sick or ****, so these are going in the classifieds.

    Mine have been in the bag for a little while now. Loving the DG105 feel and flight. From someone who's always played heavier shafts, it's a nice feel. Also loving the UDI.



    The i500 PING irons have my interest, but besides those I don't see anything else out there that could take these out of the bag. That means a lot coming from a guy who's gamed every single iron out there.

    I was recently fit for 790's. I was going to stick with my Vokey 46 PW if I bought them. The TM Fitter said that was a bad idea because I would have crazy gaps between my 9i and PW. I hit the 790 PW side by side with my PW and sure enough the 790 was considerably longer, despite only having 1 degree stronger loft. I'm guessing this is the same phenomenon. The 790 construction is probably the culprit.

    I agree, that's why I changed my gw from 48 to 46. Perfect 10yd gap between pw 790 and 46degree gap wedge now. Sounds crazy but that's p790

    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!!




    Go back to CF16, I'm selling a set!

    I think that's the club that's been in longest?



    Why wouldn't he replace it with p790? Mishits goes as far as good shots and it looks 10x better than cally.

    What kind of launch is everyone getting with the p790 irons? Obviously shaft plays a big part but are these launching lower because of stronger lofts?

    Beautiful high ball flight. I took my Mizuno JPX 900 Tour 7 iron with me to the range today. Same exact lie, length, and shaft as as my P790 7 iron (P790 is 2 degrees stronger) and the ball flight was much, much higher and yet penetrating at the same time with the 790. At least a club longer too. They are great clubs.

    Ok this mite sound weird but I am thinking of getting them 1 degree strong. I've had a couple injuries the last 2 years and went from hitting 8 iron from 150 to hitting 7 iron 145 now. Im currently using ping ie 1 with recoil 95 F4 which I ordered 1.5 strong. Still 7 going 145. Set before injury was ping s55 and my stock 8 iron was 150 yards. I'm concerned if I get 790 1 degree strong my launch will be to low?

    I would hit them before bending them strong. They are pretty long. You may not need to go stronger with them and the right shaft. I would say get fitted. That was the best decision I made. The P790 wasn’t even on my radar when I went in for a fitting.

    First up let me say that I wanted to buy a set of TM 790 but they can't build me a set at less than D6 at +1" even with lightweight shafts and their lightest heads so that was a deal-breaker for me.



    I have tested them extensively on trackman with lots of different shaft options. If you remove all of the other variables (loft, shaft, swingweight, length) whereby the ONLY difference is the head, I didn't find them much longer than most other heads on the market for a properly struck shot.



    They are forgiving so mishits may well go further and they look and feel good to me. The strong lofts make the real difference vs conventional loft clubs, but it's pure semantics if you take a 7 rather than a 6 simply because the 7 has the same loft as the 6



    Not knocking them, it's a great product I would happily own, but getting fit into the right shaft has a far greater influence on performance than the extra "speed" you get off these irons vs competition with the same lofts.

    I ordered some +1/2" and they came in at D0....had to pull the heads and add weight! DG 105 x100 shafts and they used lightweight heads.

    If they had been +1" that would have been about D3.

    First up let me say that I wanted to buy a set of TM 790 but they can't build me a set at less than D6 at +1" even with lightweight shafts and their lightest heads so that was a deal-breaker for me.



    I have tested them extensively on trackman with lots of different shaft options. If you remove all of the other variables (loft, shaft, swingweight, length) whereby the ONLY difference is the head, I didn't find them much longer than most other heads on the market for a properly struck shot.



    They are forgiving so mishits may well go further and they look and feel good to me. The strong lofts make the real difference vs conventional loft clubs, but it's pure semantics if you take a 7 rather than a 6 simply because the 7 has the same loft as the 6



    Not knocking them, it's a great product I would happily own, but getting fit into the right shaft has a far greater influence on performance than the extra "speed" you get off these irons vs competition with the same lofts.






    I ordered some +1/2" and they came in at D0....had to pull the heads and add weight! DG 105 x100 shafts and they used lightweight heads.

    If they had been +1" that would have been about D3.




    That's really interesting thanks. Did they have the etched dot in front of the serial number to denote light heads?



    My guy was coming up with D6 at +1" with Shimada Constant shafts that should swingweight about 1-2 pts LESS than the DG 105 X100



    Makes me wonder if he was just using the standard weight heads (apparently they had a green dot on them but no etched dot) even though he was told they were the lightest TM had

    Nothing special...no dots. Dealer ordered them +1/2" and lightweight heads.
