P7TW users - how is face durability?


Recommended Posts

Have noticed a lot of the lightly used sets show more face wear/browning than any other set of blades I have noticed. Love how these feels and thinking of pulling the trigger but hoping to get some more opinions from people that have had them for a while and are still using them. Do you feel like you regret getting them because of this? How are they holding up? Maybe it's not as big of an issue as I think it appears to be but want some more insight before I spend $ on a set of premium irons.

 

For the record, I did read what TM recently said in the ask TM thread about the darker milling on the face being the reason. More so want to hear from people who have had them for a while and how big of an issue this is for you. Thanks!

I mean this is just an obvious answer and assumed by all of us. This type of general statement is unhelpful at best. The question i was asking is do they wear faster than other blades or players irons. So if player A took a titleist 620 MB and hit 500 balls in the middle of the face and then took the P7tw and hit another 500 balls in the middle of the face, would the wear be the same or would the p7tws show more wear? From things i have read and observations on sets i have actually seen, is that it wears quicker than most other blades or players irons. The question is being asked to P7TW players only who have personal experience

The finish of the non-chrome portion of the face is different than what TaylorMade normally uses on their irons. It's darker and therefore seems to show more wear than other irons (at least relative to other TaylorMade irons). In terms of actual wear, I played my P7TW for most of the season and they wore exactly how much I would have expected them to. Very pleased with them.
