TaylorMade is finally bringing the P790 UDI to retail

Published

on

We’ve spotted the TaylorMade P790 UDI at the 2018 PGA Show, and also in the bags of the likes of Dustin Johnson, Jon Rahm, Justin Rose, Rory McIlroy, and Jason Day. Today, TaylorMade announced you’ll be able to have the P790 UDI in your bag as well: it’s coming to retail.

The P790 has been popular with golfers looking for a distance-boosting forged iron. TaylorMade says the clubs have been the most successful players-distance irons in company history.

The P790 UDI is made from an 8620 carbon steel body combined with high-strength forged 4140 carbon steel with a wrapped-face construction in a hollow body design. The P790 UDI’s hollow body is filled with TaylorMade’s SpeedFoam, which both boosts ball speed and enhances sound and feel.

TaylorMade brings re-engineered Inverted Cone Technology optimized for the slightly smaller face area to the UDI, as well as internal metal-injection-molded (MIM) tungsten weighting for precise CG placement and higher moment of inertia (MOI).

Additional specifications:

  • Loft: 17°
  • Lie: 60°
  • Offset: 3.2mm
  • Length: 40” (steel 39.25”)
  • Swingweight: D2

The P790 UDI is available at retail starting tomorrow, 3/30, for $219 USD. Project X’s HZRDUS Black shaft (85g) and a Golf Pride TV 360 grip are standard. The club will also be available for custom build with a range of steel and graphite options.

    I have heard from people that this thing is really good and the ones that have hit it love it. I also get a laugh out of the ones that are negative and really have no clue.

    Just the 17-degree? I know it’s a small market, can’t expect too many options. But I would think most amateurs would be looking at something in the 19-20 degree range.

      Looks like you can get it bent 2 degrees weak as well as change the lie angle.

    I got the 3 iron p790 custom ordered and bent.to 18°, and it was a LOT cheaper. Still very forgiving and a stalwart in my bag now!

      That’s what I did too, and then had the rest of the irons gapped in 4 degree increments.

Mizuno JPX 919 Tour Forged, 919 Forged, and 919 Hot Metal hit USGA’s conforming list

Published

on

As alerted by our always investigative GolfWRX Forum Members, three new Mizuno JPX irons have shown up recently on the USGA Conforming Clubs list; JPX 919 Forged (there is no image of the RH version, but there is of the LH), JPX 919 Hot Metal (and LH), and a JPX 919 Tour Forged iron.

Although still unannounced and unreleased by Mizuno, it’s likely these JPX 919 irons will be the replacements for the previous JPX 900 series. If you remember, Brooks Koepka won back-to-back U.S. Opens using JPX 900 Tour irons; now, it seems there may be a replacement for that iron on the way, judging by the USGA Conforming List.

Check out the Mizuno JPX 919 irons below, as listed on the USGA Confirming list.

SPOTTED: Srixon “Z785” and “Z585” irons

Published

on

Photos have recently popped up in our GolfWRX Forums of Srixon “Z785” and “Z585” irons. It’s been nearly two years since the company released it’s previous Z565, Z765 and Z965 irons, so it’s possible (if not likely), based on nomenclature, these could be the replacements for that series.

The photos in our forums show Z785 short irons (5-PW) and Z785 long irons (4 and 3), but it does not appear that the Z785 irons shown in the photos are driving irons, so it’s likely these photos come from a mixed set.

We do not have any official tech or release information about new irons from Srixon at this time, so we’re left to speculate for the time being. What do you think about the photos of these Srixon “Z785” and “Z585” irons?

Check out the photos of each below, and click here for more photos and discussion.
