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).”

    The P770 irons are much better than the P790ti irons I had previously. I just bought them about a month ago and love them. They have a better look at address and better feel off the clubface.

Member Tourseeking – Rare Cameron Maiden America cover

There are rare, and then there are really rare covers and this falls squarely in the really rare category. It’s priced according but would make a great addition to any collection.

Member slalomdude – Ping Hoofer Tour bag

Were used to seeing rare and hard to find, but it’s not often Ping releases something that captures attention like this. The bag is new with tags and is being offered at a great deal!

Member awtryau89 – TaylorMade SIM Rocket 3-wood

This is truly one of the fastest little “rocket ship” fairway woods on the market, and this is your chance to get your hands on one for a great deal with a Graphite Design BB.

What GolfWRXers are saying about this ‘filthy good combo’

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been responding to a driver combo which one of our members swears by. The WRXer in question is ‘QuigleyDU’ who has paired up Taylormade’s Original One (13.5 degrees) with a Fujikura Ventus Red 9x (Tipped 1″). On the combo, ‘QuigleyDU’ says he uses it as a second option off the tee and praises its launch qualities.

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.

  • b.helts: “It sure looks good. I love the smaller size and the profile of the Original One. Been looking for an 11.5 to make up a short bag. But the 11.5 are rarer than hen’s teeth.”
  • BlueDragonKorea: “The creativity to build this club.. wow!”
  • Puttersaurus Rex: “Glad I clicked. Nice looking build! I also play driver, then OO mini. My mini is the 11.5 turned up. With Motore speeder 6.1 – not as beastly, but such a fun club. Mine is 43.5″, and is used as a safe option off the tee.”
  • bladehunter: “Ventus red – the underrated red-headed stepchild of the Ventus line. I love mine in a driver. If you’re a guy who doesn’t have a positive AOA with driver, try the red. Gets it up and doesn’t spin.”

Entire Thread: “This combo is filthy good”
