Generation 3 P790 in 2021?

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.

It would be a pretty poor marketing standpoint at a time when having combo sets is so popular.

One does not choose a wife with plans to get her a boobjob and facelift. 

hahaha, that's funny. There is a difference though. Boob jobs are fake and probably don't feel good. Refinished clubs are real (unless if the refinish material falls off later on). I think a better comparison is to have wife exercise and eat well to get in better shape. I will do that.  lol.

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. 

Completely agree. Looks cast for sure. If there’s any noticeable upgrade in performance, I’ll still probably snag them, but the 770 looks so much better. And I’m not talking about the 770’s profile…way too much satin. We know it will be a great performer, but It’s a dull looking club.

It AIN'T a blade, they have those and they are sleek like u prefer. It's a GI club meant for us beaters, if you don't want that, don't buy it. There will never be a blade, with no offset, that performs like a GI. TM knows that, it's their business. They have "an expensive looking, clean, forged blade ". Buy it, it won't be the 790

I just don't understand the idea of someone buying a club purely based of what the back of it looks like. Just buy the TW irons and hack it around.

Well sure, If you don’t care about performance, that’s exactly what you would do. The overwhelming majority are looking for something that performs for them but also appeals to their eye.

Are you the same when purchasing a car? Something that gets you from A to B. Doesn't matter what it looks like? It doesn't need to be an either/or with looks and performance.

excited to see the wave of 2019 p790s posted once those 2021 orders start shipping

 

I'll bet you're right, but I'm holding on to mine. I love them and can't see upgrading. Guess I'm losing my WRX man card.

People do, because they have a lot going on between the ears.  and its not very good. They should worry about getting the ball in the hole not what a club looks like, or how it looks in the bag, the back and sole of the club you don't see at address.....its rather silly

I agree except for the part of "over whelming majority", for a 790 player less than 10% and even then its not a deal breaker.
