TaylorMade has expanded its P700-series iron lineup with the addition of the P790 irons, a forged players distance iron engineered with new SpeedFoam Technology for golfers seeking the forged look and feel of a players iron with increased distance, forgiveness and playability.
The P790s feature a medium-compact head design with a thinner topline and reduced offset.
The P790 features a soft, 8620 carbon steel body combined with a high-strength forged 4140 carbon steel WrapFace in a hollow body design.
The P790’s hollow cavity incorporates SpeedFoam Technology, a new proprietary construction which serves a dual purpose of generating ball speed as well as the management of sound and feel.
Injected into the clubhead, SpeedFoam provides face support and damping properties.
The incorporation of the WrapFace construction creates a cut-thru Speed Pocket on the sole with flexibility in the lower part of the clubface. It’s that flexibility that offers enhanced forgiveness and consistency.
The P790 also features an ultra-thin 1.75mm face thickness with re-engineered Inverted Cone Technology for the slightly smaller face area.
The previous ICT had a larger, heavier profile, but the new, smaller Inverted cone allows for reduced face thickness at the edges of the face to increase flexibility from heel to toe and low on the clubface, for more ball speed across the entire face.
For forgiveness and playability, P790 irons feature strategically placed internal metal-injection-molded (MIM) tungsten weighting for precise centre of gravity placement and higher moment of inertia.
“With P790, we created a forged iron that meets the demands of discerning players and delivers distance performance never before seen in a players iron. By combining our new SpeedFoam filler and WrapFace technology with a clean, classic design, we have effectively engineered an iron that is as beautiful as it is powerful, setting the new standard for all-around iron performance,” said Tomo Bystedt, senior director of iron creation for TaylorMade.
