Generation 3 P790 in 2021?


Recommended Posts

Hmmm, not as big a fan with the clearer photo of the chrome section. It’s nearly like the reverse of my p770, which are shiny except under the p770 txt. 
 

i do like the shape of the udi head though, would love if they make a 4 udi, to flow into 5 and 6 p790 into 770.  Would need to see them in person now to see will that flow better in the bag than my current p790s do, not convinced.

After the P770 I was hoping for more out of the P790.

 

Maybe I'm the only one, but the bubbled-out chrome section just looks off.

 

I was geared-up and ready to pre-order...but either these will have to grow on me...or they will be an altogether pass.

 

I owned bought Gen1 and Gen2 and both looked better to me than Gen3.

I think these look fantastic. I loved the P790 but wasn't a huge fan of the faux badge/cutout they had. These are clean, and look awesome. 

 

From the shots of DJ testing them, I thought the top edge looked square maybe to hide something, I see from the back it cuts in a little. Can't wait to see more pics.

I'm surprised how many people are knocking these. I think they look great. I love the brushed chrome finish. Best looking P790 IMO. Can't wait until we can get our hands on them and actually see them in person.

They look good by themselves. I just can't see why they didn't polish or brush them to fit better in a combo set, p790/p770.

I have both Gen 1 and Gen 2 P790s.  Personally, I think the new ones look way better to my eye.  Cannot wait to see and hear more about them.

Not enough like the p770 for my liking. I'd much prefer a slightly larger p770 to mix in with set. Why did they not use the same chrome finish. Kind of disappointing 

Because then P770 players would hate it, because it makes them look like they're playing 790s. 😄 They need some differentiation. At the end of the day, when rifling through your bag, would you notice the difference? The ZX7 and ZX5 combo well because there is so much going on, you can't even see how different they are. Yes those are cavities but I like how clean these are.

But the 790 should be their biggest seller 😛. It should get a good polishing. I'd be tempted to give them a run on a polishing mop to get rid of that nasty (cheap looking) frosted finish. If I wanted that look I'd go Ping.

Actually not a bad idea. I'm not used to refinishing clubs, but that finish isn't a coating of some sort?

It looks like a bead blasted or brushed finish. It makes it look like a cast head. It should however come to a chrome shine with a polish. The head shape is very similar to the 770. I just think they messed up on the cosmetics. It takes away from the clean blade look. I wonder do Taylormade ask for feedback from regular Joes or just tour pros? Someone should have pointed this out to them long before launch. Bit like the frosted section with the black infill on the 2019 version. It destroyed the overall look of what could have been an expensive looking, clean, forged blade.

I think they were just looking for enough of a cosmetic change to justify bringing out another generation of it. 
 

I can think of a few other ways they could have done it but not many if they’re looking to keep it somewhat clean

My dude, we get it... you prefer the all chrome look of the 770's, but from a marketing standpoint I'm sure they wanted to differentiate the two. Order the p790's and have them refinished, problem solved.
