760 top line would be hard to look at after the honeymoon period.  TM's iron release track record has me staying at arm's length.. WAYYYYYYYY too many models released too close together.

Excellent review of them and the comparison photos.
Hope they work out for you if you do end up doing a full set comparison with your 745s. They are so much smaller thank I thought. Pleasantly surprised.

J, have you ever hit or played the 770’s? If so how do the 760’s compare?

I haven't sorry. I've hit the 730's and 750's, i think IMO the 760's are better than both for a guy like me.  I'm at a stage where i want my cake and eat it too.  Players profile with forgiveness around the face.

If someone wants a really thin top line than i agree.  I don't mind a medium sized top line (talking players irons top line sizes).  TM is all over the place right now, no doubt.  Heard some weird stuff about the woods lineup but who knows whats true.

Excellent review thank you!! I really like seeing only 5 yards less than P790 considering they are lofted 2.5 degrees less in the 7 iron and 4-5 yards longer than the MP 18 MMC which are stronger by 1 degree. I also like hearing the 760's beat out everything in forgiveness with the exception of the 790's which makes sense its really a different category.

Thanks and i don't see the big distance jump with the 790's like others do.  My 745's are pretty long (strong lofts) which i like because I need help keeping the ball down.  In the end you can always adjusts lofts based on your needs.

J13 thanks so much -

I think the 760/790 argument comes down to the gapping. The 790 long irons are easier to hit. The 760s don't have the fliers and the gaps between clubs. Both spin a good amount and feel good. It's hard to gap the sets.

I don't think there is an easier 4-6 iron to hit on the market than the 790. Ultimately it's the other clubs that make the decision for you.

My pleasure and I agree.  I think you could blend sets by tweaking lofts but I don't think the speed foam is in the short irons for that purpose.  790 long irons are stupid good in fact I just got a new toy that i'll have to snap a few pics of this week and post :D

Never was able to successfully make a combo set I was comfortable with. Especially with these hot faced irons; there's something to be said for predictability through the entire set. I'm just about ready to drop a blank check for the next time I see some mint 945's and just be done with it for the next several years. What are the chances right now that you stick with the 745's versus the field?

And the 790 really is money as a long iron or driving iron application. Either the 3 iron or the UDI depending on gaps is a great addition if that's the new toy you're alluding to.

It can be a challenge to make combo sets but it can be done as long as you match lofts and offset.  I think in some cases you also have to ignore the club designation and go with what fills the distance gaps which means maybe you have two irons in the bag that say 6 on the bottom.

I honestly don't know what i'm going to do as far as irons.  Obviously i love the 745's so we will see ;)

Haven't hit the C Taper lites enough to comment.  The 919T's i tested have the PX LZ's in them.  Great feeling iron but a little loose for me.  Maybe if i got fit I could make them work but i'm really happy with the Modus 120's so don't have much reason to mess with iron shafts.

Understand completely.  I'm not saying i won't ever switch but i've had some great success on course with the Modus 120's. I've been playing the 120TX but might tinker with the 120X to get a little lighter shaft as I play my irons 3/4" over standard and with a 130g shaft it can get a bit heavy on my off days.

That’s why I went lighter (120X). Just beats you up less on the bad days and if I have a longer range session.

The 120x just doesn’t have the same...feeling...as the 120tx. And by “feeling” I mean way more than just feel. 120tx is superb. 120x is just..meh.

Would be interested in your thoughts on the CTL.  In my fitting we started with the Modus 120, spun more than the CTL.. I was counting on going back to the X100, so I wasn't actually planning on either one fitting me, but those were the top 2 recommended from the start.

760 top line would be hard to look at after the honeymoon period.  TM's iron release track record has me staying at arm's length.. WAYYYYYYYY too many models released too close together.
Yeah, I don't really understand why the 750's and 730's didn't get a bit more buzz.  I played both, had a combo set I threw together as well, and they are as good as anything I've hit.  Pretty much bears itself out on tour, as well.

I would have bought a set in June but Taylormade don't take swing weight requests so decided against them, glad as I love my 919 Tours.

@Rosco - I hear ya but with how long i play my irons it's getting harder to not get lazy on off days and push shots to the right as the club gets behind me.  130g shaft at 3/4" -1 " over standard is a heavy SOB and i'm not getting any younger :swoon:

I think that has to do with Pure's point.  When you pepper the marketplace with 104 models it's hard for any of them to gain traction.  Also to be honest i like the 760 profile better than the 730 or 750 and it's way more forgiving.

Yeah that blows my mind.  Even if they add on a charge for it like an extra $75 or something.

I hear ya.  I looked at the 760's in the shop the other day, and wouldn't swap the 750's for them, but that's personal pref.  As good as you hit it, the 750's are not difficult whatsoever.  The 730's on the other hand, are a pretty small blade.

haha i hear ya.  My miss is getting stuck so heavier longer clubs don't help me so it makes sense to move to a lighter shaft.  The 120X hard stepped will most likely go in my next set or maybe I'll just stick with the 120TX and go a little shorter in length.

I can play the 730's or 750's and be fine but it's the days where my swing is garbage that i want to make better.  Any iron hit in the center of the face will produce a good shot, it's those shots that i thin or hit heel side of center that i want help with.  I have am VERY tempted to get a set of blades (Srixon 945's or 965's) but i MUST resist haha.  They just look so good. :taunt: :swoon:

HHAHAHA LOVE IT

For anyone wondering that is a Masters sandwich that Robo and I witnessed being taken out of Fowlers bag at the Zurich.  We were on the Cobra Tour van and he was switching from his Masters bag to a new one and found the sandwhich in one of the pockets. Anyway it was pulled out and the Tour van erupted with some people gagging.  It was horrific but amazing.  They then took the sandwich and hung it on the wall where it still is 4 years later.  It's amazing and most likely there are new forms of bacteria in that bag the world has never seen.

I have the 965 and they are really forgiving for a blade. I need to settle on something and ride it for a few years at least. I gave into the crowd telling me the 965’s suck, when they really don’t. Such a mental midget.

What Srixon needs to do is go back to the offset of the 45 series.  They had a break out year then almost doubled the amount of offset lol Who is calling the shots around there?

Have you had the chance to look at the 919 forged? What are your thoughts on a combo of say 4&5 forged and 6-9 919 tour?

I have. I think i'd do a combo set with the Fli Hi's before the Forged.  Matches better and has similar offset.
