Spotted: TaylorMade P-790 irons (updated w/ P-790 UDI)

Published

on

Update: 8/2/17 2:30 p.m.

On Wednesday, Jason Day was testing a “P-790 UDI” 2 iron on the range at the 2017 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Check out the gallery below, and see what GolfWRX members are saying about the P-790 UDI iron in our forums.

We spotted Jon Rahm testing a TaylorMade “P-790” 3-iron at the 2017 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational on Tuesday. Given the “P-790” stamping on the iron, it may be an addition to TaylorMade’s P-Family, which currently includes TaylorMade’s P-750 Tour Proto and P-770 irons released earlier in 2017.

We only saw Rahm testing a long iron on the range, which could mean the P-790 is a driving iron model. Like the P-750 and P-770 irons, the “P-790” iron is stamped with “Tungsten,” which is a dense material that’s often used to move weight in a golf club to make it more forgiving.

We will update this story as more information becomes available.

    If the tungsten weight is only in the toe, it will move the COG outside of the geographic center of the club. Pros will have no problem closing the face, hell, I’ve been putting lead tape on the toe of clubs for decades. It slows down my rate of closure and allows me to play a minor draw while making it easier the hit a cut on both irons and woods. I get questions every week about my choice of tape placement, and I tell them what’s what, ussually they don’t understand. I also place tape on the crown of certain FW clubs to raise the COG, usually adding only 3-4 swing weights per club. Similar to putting the heavy weights on TM clubs high or toe biased to achieve desired flight for the current golf balls. Used to be more important with balata covered balls, they spin 50 – 100 % more than current offerings. I loved the double covered Bridgestones of the 90’s. Longer than ProV1’s, cheaper. Would like to see low toe weight biased 3 – 5 irons, split weight tungsten 6 – PW MBs in 730’s, current gamers Nicklaus Muirfieds reshafted in current shafts. Ultimate blades I love more than my two sets of 712MB’s.

    Great additions from TM this week! My new set up will be then P790 3 iron added to my existing P770 4-6, and add in the P730 7-PW. Trackman the distances, Tweak the lofts and I’m good to go for the next 3 years.

    So I’m guessing the new players lineup would be: P-790 = new TP driving iron (UDI),
    P-770 = new TP CB, P-750 = new TP MC, so P-730 = Rors/Rose Proto = new TP MB???

    The 790 looks like an old bite off the early 90’s TMag ICW clubhead design crossed with the current Proto/750 clubhead design.

    im not sure they mentioned that Tungsten was just added to the toe did they. if they placed it in the toe and heal of the club would this not make it more forgiving by reducing the rotation of the club on off center hits? AKA AP2 irons

Spotted: New Aldila Rogue Silver 130 MSI shaft

Published

on

The official Tour launch of the Aldila Rogue Silver 130 MSI shaft is this week at the 2018 Forth Worth Invitational at Colonial, and we were able to snap a few photos on the range. MSI stands for millions of pounds per square inch, and basically, it refers to how stiff the fiber is — the higher the number, the greater stiffness it has.

Headed to retail later this summer, according to Aldila, the lower-launching, lower-spinning Rogue Silver 130 MSI is the successor to the Rogue Silver 125 MSI.

Per the company, the new Rogue Silver 130 MSI will feature the same tapered butt-counter-balanced design as the 125. The stronger 130 MSI carbon fiber produces slightly lower torque, however, and is the strongest material in a Rogue shaft to date.

Several Tour pros have already made the switch to the new shaft:

  • Jimmy Walker put the 70 TX in his driver for the first time at The Players. He had been gaming the 80 TX in his fairway wood since the Masters.
  • Kevin Chappell has been playing the 80 TX in both his 3 and 5-woods.
  • Martin Flores has put the 70 TX in his driver
  • Chez Reavie put the 60 TX in his driver at the Masters.

We’ll bring you more details as they become available closer to launch. Click here to see what GolfWRX members are saying about the new shaft in our forums.
