With P790, TaylorMade engineers built a forged iron that delivers remarkable distance coupled with enhanced playability and feel. Building on that success, P790 Black irons merge powerful performance with a classic design to deliver extraordinary distance in a players iron.
P790’s hollow cavity utilizes SpeedFoam Technology, generating additional ball speed as well as optimizing sound and feel. Injected into the clubhead, SpeedFoam provides face support plus sound-damping properties that allow P790 to perform unlike any other iron in the TaylorMade family. Constructed from a high-strength, forged 4140 carbon steel wrap-face and soft carbon steel body, the max-COR face and stronger lofts produce a high, powerful trajectory.
P790 also features an ultra-thin 1.75mm face thickness (20 percent thinner than the company's PSi irons) with re-engineered Inverted Cone Technology, specifically optimized for this club’s slightly smaller face area. The smaller Inverted Cone allows for reduced thickness at the edges of the face, increasing flexibility from heel to toe and low on the clubface, delivering more ball speed across the entire face.
Defined by the look and feel of a true players iron, its sophisticated shaping features a straighter topline, shallower face and progressive offset. The set employs strategically placed internal metal-injection-molded tungsten-weighting, placed internally in the 3- through 7-iron for better stability on off-center hits and an optimized center of gravity.
Like the original P790 model, the sole contains a slot for improved flexing on shots struck lower on the face. The black finish throughout the entire set is achieved via a PVD process that produces its premium high-gloss.
Tomo Bystedt, Senior Director of Product Creation believes,“P790 Black delivers forged feel with breakthrough distance and forgiveness in a sleek, all-black finish. The new appearance brings out the soul of what P790 truly represents by creating a look and feel that inspires an aggressive mindset, enabling the boldest of players to attack the course with confidence.” At TaylorMade they like to say, “Distance has a dark side!”
