    I think whoever said it earlier was spot on, these probably work really well for medium to high spin players but some low spin players may not get along as well. I've been testing since seeing a lot of them in bags at my state Am but as a low spin guy I see some inconsistencies in distance.




    I can report that I'm a high spin player and so far have not experienced any inconsistencies with the 790

    Exactly, some here only want one side of the true story told - their side, of course. Many folks, very much appreciate the warnings and the fact that these irons have serious distance issues being brought to light so that others benefit. This is a more important topic than just ONE particular set of clubs because this has the new hollow technology on the line. Anyways, keep on posting ALL of your experiences and just ignore the true trolls.




    IIUC you haven't even played these clubs, and made comments like UNPLAYABLE clubs.

    To me that is not very helpful to others.
    I have played the clubs and have already stated that. If you'd taken time to read the comments versus making unfounded assumptions (which says something about you) then you wouldn't look so ignorant now. Furthermore, it was one our TOP CLUB FITTERS here in SoCal that made the statement ("P790's are UNPLAYABLE because of the distance control issues") directly to me. Its laughable how those still playing these things take it personal when the true insight is coming from someone that spends more hours studying/working/applying this stuff than ALL of us combined. Look, I understand some don't want negative info on these clubs getting out so they can unload them on some unknowing poor soul.

    Look, I don't understand all the folks coming in to defend these irons, as if its personal to them. If they work for you great, but most good players won't even consider irons like these with little to no distance control. Guess thats why NO pros are playing them from what I've seen.

    Another troll with nothing to offer AND, we see he's playing Callaways, NOT P790's. Please direct me to your MAJOR contributions to this thread???

    Just survived a HOT round in Chandler AZ at Cattails at Whirlwind (a Troon Golf Property) and was the first official round with my P790's. I am giving them an A+ for the distance improvement over my previous JPX900 Forged irons. These play a good 1/2 to full club longer and could be the shafts fit me better a bit. I went from PXLZ6.0 in the 900's to Modus 130S straight in the P790's and loving the feel. I think as much as they feel and sound great, I was most surprised with how forgiving they were on slightly off center toe strikes! Some more range time and rounds will really dial these in for me on my quest to get into single digit handy.

    ... Just put him on ignore, it makes the thread so much more enjoyable. Plenty have made negative comments about these irons without being a complete d!ck. We are grown men talking about golf equipment, usually in a civilized and congenial manner. Those that are not are simply a waste of time, unless you enjoy juvenile banter.

    I called earlier today just to see if there is a chance I get my sticks by the weekend. At first she said they went into production yesterday so it would probably be early next week. Then she saw I had 1 day shipping and that it’s possible but to call back Thursday morning to see where things are.

    I hear you! Wish it was a dream, as it was HOT A F out there! Coming from North East Ohio, its going to take some time getting used to not only the bermuda rough but the shear heat which is making me question the goto Golf Pride Tour Wrap 2Gs I have played for years. I did notice during the round that on a few throttled shots, I did feel my perspiration a bit and obviously took away the 100% confidence in the shot with the longer irons. Other than that its all there. These things are so forgiving, long, did I say long, and sound awesome on pure strikes. Plus they just look gorgeous as I recieved numerous compliments from staff and my playing partners yesterday. I really highly recommend them and as of right now, they are the irons that are staying int he bag over my MP53's and JPX900 forged! Nice work TM or PXG or whom ever developed this technology. Thank you

    I like the P790 but am exchanging them for P770. The distance is nice, but my distance was all over the place with the P790. I'd hit 10 shots at my local indoor range that uses GC2 with my 7 iron and I'd hit 5 shots at a distance I'd expect (168-172). I'd also hit one that carried 180 and another one at 162. According to the data, my clubhead speed didn't vary much and my strikes were consistently center-toe. Attack angles were all similar as well. I took a P770 7 iron and hit 10 shots and all of them were consistent. I carried them about 160-165 and much straighter. For me, I think predictability becomes more valuable which is why I'm making the switch.

Other than that its all there. These things are so forgiving, long, did I say long, and sound awesome on pure strikes. Plus they just look gorgeous as I recieved numerous compliments from staff and my playing partners yesterday. I really highly recommend them and as of right now, they are the irons that are staying int he bag over my MP53's and JPX900 forged! Nice work TM or PXG or whom ever developed this technology. Thank you




    Maybe try a rain glove until you decide to make a grip change.




    Thank you great idea!

    I like the P790 but am exchanging them for P770. The distance is nice, but my distance was all over the place with the P790. I'd hit 10 shots at my local indoor range that uses GC2 with my 7 iron and I'd hit 5 shots at a distance I'd expect (168-172). I'd also hit one that carried 180 and another one at 162. According to the data, my clubhead speed didn't vary much and my strikes were consistently center-toe. Attack angles were all similar as well. I took a P770 7 iron and hit 10 shots and all of them were consistent. I carried them about 160-165 and much straighter. For me, I think predictability becomes more valuable which is why I'm making the switch.
    This seems to be par for the course!




    Except for the guy right above, and me, and hundreds of thousands of others who enjoy the irons so much TM can't keep them in stock.

    Of course none of that is actually true we've been told it's literally not possible to play golf with the P790's

    I live in SC where it’s hot and humid to boot. Sometimes I start out with a leather glove and end up with my rain glove shortly after. They last longer too. The sweat severely deteriorates the life of a premium glove.

    Especially the really nice, thin Cabretta ones. They soak through instantly, stretch out of shape quickly when wet and basically go to **** in a handbasket after just a couple really sweaty rounds.

    Spin definitely can be reduced from the mat by itself. Even using the CCE mat can lead to -300 to -500 rpm. If i use my GC2 outdoors my spin number is noticeably higher.

    anyone use the 3i as a DI?



    I am kicking around a black 790 3i with black DG105/S300, just for fun.




    ... I have a P790 3 iron with an Even Flow Blue hy shaft and it works well. As a 100 mph smooth swinger, I prefer the original Udi mostly because I was comfortable with it playing it along side my Cobra Forged Tours. But I think it just comes down to a personal preference.

    I was a long time Ping iron player. I5 to G25 to iE1 to G400 to G700 back to iE1 and now with P790's.



    For me and my game they have been nothing short of spectacular. Roughly the size of the iE1 with the forgiveness of the G25. Feel and sound have been great and the added length in the 5-7 have been a benefit. I hit the 8-P a bit further than the iE1's but nothing that has created an issue as I have played enough rounds with them that I know what to expect.



    The only "fliers" that I have had really have been in instances where I believe most any iron would/could potentially create a flyer.



    In most instances, I hit them about 1 club longer in the 5-7 and then it tapers down to about 1/2 club longer than I hit the iE1's in the short irons.



    I do appreciate the more standard length of the P790's as the G400's and G700's both have 5 irons that are 1/2" longer.



    Still trying to figure out the AW though as its the only one that I don't care for.



    Have a Ping Glide 50 on the way and may just play that and get rid of the AW.



    I'm beyond the honeymoon period with them and have really enjoyed how they perform for my swing.

    ... I spent 6 weeks playing everyday inPhoenix this past M arch/April and absolutely loved Whirlwind although I played my P790's on Devils Claw. You really need to dial in distance on an unfamiliar course and the P790's were spot on. Hotting our 2nd shot into 18 a Bobcat just sauntered past the back of the green like he/she was out for a stroll. Just a visual treat the entire round.

    Thanks for sharing. We wanted to play Devils Claw but it is undergoing a renovation of the bunkers currently according to the pro shop. Being the first time I played Cattails, no shot looked unrealistic and having the best xtra firepower confidence of the 790’s was a delight. Looking forward to getting a few in the near future in on Devils Claw, hopefully we will get the Bobcat sighting. Too cool brotha

    I bet never, the dude from Avatar probably hits it a ton and has no need for help from a distance iron.
