What GolfWRXers are saying about TaylorMade’s P770 irons

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing TaylorMade’s all-new P770 irons. WRXer ‘texcrom’ has had his set delivered and tested the irons out on the course, and here are his thoughts on the new clubs:

“Looks – Best looking iron I have ever put in my bag. At address, just a great looking club, minimal offset, relatively thin top line. 

Feel – Surprisingly soft feel. I expected harder, with more of a click. As soft as my MP20 MMC’s but in a different way. Just soft, which I found very, very pleasing!

Forgiveness – Very pleased here, as a couple of shots that I felt like I missed ended up not off by much! This is why I bought these…my concession to loss of skills through aging, and wanted more forgiveness with a players club look and feel. Got it!

Distance – Initially seemed shorter than my Mizuno’s, and I was surprised. Turned out it was a result of 3 weeks off, and a temperature of 59 degrees at tee time. High flight, and distance in line with Mizuno’s (at almost 65 years old, life is a 150 yard 7 iron).

Dispersion – Excellent, but be aware these irons are straight! Back nine, I managed a couple of very slight fades, but these are pretty much aim and shoot. 

Turf interaction – This was the best surprise of the day. My Mizuno’s typically cut a pretty deep divot and an all too frequent heavy shot. The P770’s were smooth through the turf, and even in my first round with them, I did not miss an iron shot. Great through the turf! Very pleased!!!

Very pleased with these!! Playing again Monday, and will know more after second round!”

Our members have been discussing the irons with some sharing their early experiences with the clubs in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Hougz79: “Had another round with the 770s. Played my home course which (for me) is quite challenging. Fired a +6 78. Better performance than my i210s. The turf interaction is far superior for my swing. This course requires the whole bag to be hit, so tested the mid and long irons a bit. Very pleased. Very satisfied with these thus far. I think TM has a winner on their hands.”
  • ASN21: “Came to these from the OG P790’s and haven’t missed a beat. They simply check all the boxes. Can’t wait to use them again on Friday.”
  • gwelfgulfer: “If I do end up changing irons over the winter, these will get serious consideration. Was impressed with just trying a 7i quickly at a driver fitting, and have always loved the look of the ’05 TP CB’s.”
  • tdelam: “Got mine today, and I came to this section to see if the feeling of love is mutual with fellow WRXr’s. My god, what a beautiful set of irons. The feeling of these are so nice. I am coming from P790 (2019’s) custom-built from TM with DG S300, PXG 0311T gen 2, and Mizuno MP 20 SEL’s. I went with KBS Tour S 120’s in the P770’s, very glad I did. I was very very surprised with the forgiveness of these as well. Sold my P790’s quickly. I think the TM’s win; Now to sell the other 2 sets (leftys).”

GolfWRX Classifieds (9/21/20): Sub70, Callaway X2 Hot, Titleist TS4

Published

on

At GolfWRX, we love golf equipment—plain and simple.

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment for the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball, it even allows us to share another thing – the equipment itself.

One of the best ways to enjoy equipment is to experiment and whether you are looking to buy-sell-or trade (as the name suggests) you can find almost anything in the GolfWRX BST Forum. From one-off custom Scotty Cameron Circle T putters, to iron sets, wedges, and barely hit drivers, you can find it all in our constantly updated marketplace.

These are some of the latest cool finds from the GolfWRX BST, and if you are curious about the rules to participate in the BST Forum you can check them out here: GolfWRX BST Rules

Member Golfman1 – Callaway X2 Hot 3 wood

The XHot line changed the entire trajectory of Callaway fairway woods on a performance level and the X2 Hot is still, as the name suggests, one heck of a hot fairway wood.

Member chrisokeefe12 – Sub70 Pro Fairway wood

How do you get one of the best value fairway woods on the market for an even better value? You buy it used! Sub70 is known for quality clubs for a great price, and this 4-wood could be just the club you are looking for.

Member farrar24 – Titleist TS4 Driver

One of the lowest of low spinning drivers on the market in the Titleist TS4, and if you plan on playing some golf during the breezy fall, this could be your next fairway finder.

What GolfWRXers are saying about ‘old but still relevant fairway woods’

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the best old but relevant fairway woods. WRXer ‘moogolfer’ kicks off the thread with his picks, saying:

“If you come across one of these fairways give them a try: R7 TP, Cleveland Launcher Comp and Mizuno MP Titanium. The most recently released club is the Mizuno at 10 years ago with the other two around 15 years ago, which helps make them inexpensive. 

All 3 have titanium construction in varying degrees, and all 3 have great distance. I say this not as they have good distance for old clubs, but have distance comparable to anything you’ll find today. Every now and then you’ll find an RBZ, 2016 M2, 917 or SIM that flys as far as your driver, true, but give one of these old boys a try some time. “

Our members have been sharing which fairway woods they feel fit the bill, and why in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • boggyman: “My OG R’ballz is with its trusty Green NV. Good as anything I’ve ever played for myself. It’s still in standby, going nowhere till it collapses.”
  • Chadwickog: “I have an OG Exotics XCG, that’s a wonderful club as well.”
  • tannyhoban: “Funny you say that as I just picked up a R7 Titanium 7 wood. It might come in handy.”
  • marrtinbns: “I just put an 8-9 year old Callaway original Xhot 3w back in my bag. IT fell out of my bag several times it’s so boring, but always seems to be back.”
