SPOTTED: TaylorMade P-760 Forged irons (via Jason Day’s Instagram Live)

Published

on

As reported in our GolfWRX Forums, TaylorMade staffers Rory McIlroy and Jason Day showed off a new TaylorMade P-760 Forged iron on their personal Instagram Live feeds during testing sessions with Tomo Bystedt, Director of Product Creation for TaylorMade.

According to GolfWRX Member jjgsgolf: “Just saw these on Rory’s Instagram Live, supposedly they’re in between the 750 and 770 in thickness and forgiveness, and the 7-3 irons have the same signature speed foam of the 790 and GAPR models…”

See what GolfWRX Members are saying about the photos in our forums.

In TaylorMade’s current stable of irons are the P-750 and P-770 irons, which launched in 2017. They are both forged players irons with Tungsten added into their soles. Additionally, TaylorMade has P-730 blade irons, and Speed-Foam-filled P-790 irons.

Now, it appears that P-760 Forged irons may be on their way.

According to GolfWRX member eedub, Jason Day was less-than-enthusiastic: “Jason Day went live also, didn’t exactly seem excited about them. Blatantly said he’s ‘concerned’ about the leading edge, all while being filmed by Tomo from Taylormade who apparently designed the irons. yikes!”

Here is the full transcript from the testing session where Day expresses concern.

It also appears that the P-760 irons have a screw in the toe, which usually tips off the fact it’s a hollow-bodied iron, or in this case, filled with Speed Foam.

GolfWRX Member jjgsgolf continued: “From what I heard in the IG Live these are supposed to be hotter than 750 and 770 but not even close to the 790’s because of the loft. JD and Rory were hitting the 760’s pretty similar distance to their gamers on the videos.”

TaylorMade has not yet commented on the P-760 Forged irons, so we’re currently left to speculate. We will update this story as more information is released.

    Oh man, these are dreadfully ugly. Hope they hit the ball in the hole every time to be worth having to look at those things in the bag!

    Well, if you leave it in the sun long enough, can probably grill any dead animals you kill with your errant golf shots. Just make sure to clean and gut first. Stay civilized.

    Most of my bag is Taylormade outside of my irons 4-PW. Instead of these do yourself a favor and get the JPX 919 tours for half the price and enjoy!

    These clubs look terrible. I know the back side doesn’t hit the ball, but these clubs will look ugly sitting in a bag.

      I was thinking the same… reminds me a little of the old Nike Pro Combo OS. Wasn’t the prettiest club to most, but man did they perform… I’m definitely giving these a hit.

    That is one ugly iron. Kind of like if an RSi and a Simmons Tiger Shark had a baby. A really ugly baby…

      Great analogy. I was also thinking the Zebra Putter mixed in there as well.

Forum Thread of the Day: “New Ping G410 Driver?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from hervygolf21, and it surrounds the new G410 driver from Ping that is allegedly set for release at the beginning of 2019. Our members have found out plenty of information on the latest driver from Ping since the thread began, apparently, and here’s a quick look at some of the features you might expect from the new model (if you take forum members’ word for it).

According to the thread, the PING G410 will be black with red accents, will have a higher MOI than the current G400 model, will still contain the Ping Turbulators and will be offered in 12 degrees without draw weighting. It’s also believed that the G400 Max will remain current until July/August 2019, but at a lower price point.

Here are a few posts in the thread reflecting on the news, but make sure to check out the entire thread and join the discussion at the link below.

  • lc1342: “Love both the G400 LST and G400 Max, but if they are bringing out something better… I’ll take it!”
  • cz13x4: “This sounds like a very interesting update. Not keen on red but very interested to see what comes out.”
  • roho: “Late January?  Sounds like maybe a PGA Show unveil in Orlando.”

Ben Hogan adds Ft. Worth “White” to iron lineup

Published

on

After the launch of Diamond Black Metal finish Ft. Worth “Black” irons earlier this year, Ben Hogan’s nickel-chrome Ft. Worth irons are back…sort of. The Texas-baed company today announced the launch of Ben Hogan Ft. Worth White irons.

Now with respect to the “White” designation, If you’re skeptical/confused, well, let’s just have a look at a comment on BH’s Instagram post announcing the iron launch and the company’s response…

jonmodica: “Very unclear the changes from previous model… also… white? It’s chrome…..”

Benhogangolf: ”@jonmodica More progressive specific to each club head, a more aggressive V-Sole pattern and the ‘white’ is opposite of the popular and newly designed Ft. Worth Black.”

There you have it, folks. “White” as in contrast to the Ft. Worth Black irons, and the Ft. Worth White is not merely a re-issue of original chrome Ft. Worth, according to the company.

With respect to the changes to the V-Sole system, the company said this in its marketing materials for the Ft. Worth Black.

“Feedback from strong players and robot testing indicated that the leading edge could be increased on certain irons, and trailing edge softened … especially with less-than-full shots in the shorter irons.”

“So, in our ongoing quest to design and manufacture the best clubs in golf, we’ve modified the V-Sole Technology used on the Ben Hogan Ft. Worth BLACK slightly. The sole maintains the same basic design principles as the original V-Sole but has been optimized for each iron in the set. In effect, we’ve strengthened the leading edge from the sole to the face on some of the Ft. Worth BLACK irons, while reducing the trailing edge bounce on others.”

Obviously, the company scrapped the PreciseLoft system introduced with the original Ft. Worth irons. That system offered four loft profiles, all with consistent four-degree gaps. After finding the vast majority of players preferred the “mid-high” launch profile, the company did away with the others…and returned to tradition iron number (rather than loft) stamping on the toe.

The aforementioned lofts in the 4-PW set range from 22 degrees to 46 degrees.

“The Ft. Worth White Irons are illustrative of how Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company interacts with and listens to its customers,” said Scott White, President and CEO, Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company. “On the heels of our sales success with the Ft. Worth Black Irons, we found many ‘traditionalists’ who wanted to play this iron design with the standard nickel-chrome finish, so we accommodated them with this launch.”

Ft. Worth White irons are available for purchase on the Ben Hogan website exclusively for $700.00 per seven-piece set (4-PW).
