Warrick - I'm pretty sure the 4,5,7 heads are backordered - if you have to wait for them to arrive anyways - might as well hit them first :)

Yeah, I know, looks like 11/22 ship and I am only looking at a week or so for the Demo, just such an impatient ho with a loaded PP acount.

Think I am going to drop mine on the BST this weekend. I love the clubs but I've had something else come up that can't be ignored.

I have Mizuno JPX 900 Forged and Ping i200s. It’s not about the clubs. I feel they are some of the best irons out. Just a family situation. So my 4-AW Modus 130 stiff set gamed 3 rounds will be moving on for less than cost.

Went by RD in Santa Ana to hit the long irons and they actually had some separate 3 irons for sale. Cant wait to get it to the course to try. Simulator was good enough to warrant giving it a try as a UDI.

Trying to decide between these and i200s after a recent fitting.  Both with the Nippon 105, identical smash (1.39 for P790, 1.38 for i200), spin was 5175 for P790 vs 5660 for i200, launch angle 13.2 for P790 vs 17.2 for i200, land angle 42.0 for P790 vs 45.3 for i200 and carry 181.6 for P790 vs 168.4 for i200 (was swinging slightly slower with the Ping, but hit them later in the fitting).  Considering the P790 6 iron loft is 26.5 and i200 is 29 degrees, the numbers seem very comparable and I saw a significantly higher apex with the pings (don't have an exact number).  Considering I could always power spec loft the pings if I wanted, I'm having a hard time deciding which to go with.  Cost and lack of waiting for back order says ping, "new" factor says TM.  Both look great at address and in the bag, so it's not been an easy decision.  Any thoughts on others who have hit both?

I’d been thinking of the 790’s, AP2 or AP3 as my next purchase and heavily leaning towards the 790’s

I’ve been invited to a Fitting at Titleist HQ in the next fortnight but unfortunately I’m not going to be able to compare them to the 790’s at the fitting

The retailer I’m tied to won’t have any of the Titleist fitting components either so I’m gonna struggle to do a direct comparison and there’s not many places you can fit outdoors with real Pro V1’s like at Titleist

Not really seen any comparisons between 718 and 790 yet either

anyone have any color to share?  recently made my first purchase through a rep- i dont know him directly since i purchased through a friend.

trying to fix an issue with lofts and booked a TM demo day for tomorrow.  does anyone know if the reps there would be willing to bend or are they more or less obligated to help?  I am not not sure of my recourse assuming there is an issue w some of my irons' specs
on site- most reps don't have a loft/lie machine. depending on the club, they might be able to do it for you if they have a loft/lie machine. if not, you'll have to go to a clubmaker/builder/etc.
thanks- this is at a golf store actually, so hopefully they can do what needs to be done
turns out my 7i was built to the wrong spec and too strong- I've corrected it and bent it a little weaker.  the other lofts are fine.

if anyone is in a rush for 5-AW, 2 degrees up, with modus 130 stiff PM me.  may be willing to sell these as they are in mint condition (1 round and a range and sim session)

i do love these clubs, but i think i may be better off in something more traditional and not necessarily a "distance iron"

anyone else noticing any issues with something similar?

on tackman at a demo day i carried a 7i 178 and rolled out to ~188.  this was before the clubs were released so i could only hit a 6 or 7i.  since ive been hitting at the range, and have one round completed, i seem to only be hitting my 8i around 160.  i still hit my 7 iron ~180, and was pin high on a 180 yard par 3 today.

beyond the 7 iron, some weights were removed or something.  has anyone noticed a large gap from 7 iron to 8 iron or higher?  assumed w the lofts, despite being stronger, that i would be hitting my 8 iron ~170 and about 10 yards shorter with each shorter iron.

today my 8 was ~160, 9 iron ~150

the only gap issues I have had are with the wedges.  I added another wedge to my set and removed the hybrid as my 3 iron is going as far as my 2 hybrid.  I am 170 with the 7 iron and 160 with my 8 and 150 with my 9.  Once I get into the PW thats where my gap issues arise.

Out of interest, what is you SS with a 7i?

My SS avg with 7i is 82mph

How do the JPX Forged and P790 compare in terms of blade length?

Don't post much here but really enjoy reading everyone's opinions. Got fitted here in the U.K a couple of weeks ago for some 750s but tried a 790 7 iron at the end, great distance and feel however stopping the ball could be an issue lol. Ss was down a few mph as well through lack of ability I guess!! Ended up ordering a 3 iron which turned up yesterday, release date here isn't til next week, took it on course and wow. Got it with KBS flt 130 and it launches high and long and very easy to hit. Does anyone know if they're going to release a 2 iron? Cheers

Just got my set, 4-PW. Not out until Monday here but mine came earlier. All I can say is wow, wow.... had the CF16 and I thought they were good.
The P790 look great, simple looks, easy to clean, no little hidden bits for dirt to hide and they go far.
I am a Scratch player, but don’t hit the ball far, today I had 180 into a decent wind, pulled out the 6 and hit it to the back of the green over 190, that for me is unheard of...
They have a lovely square almost boxy look which I love.... playing tomorrow, will let you know how it goes....

Hey all. Just looking for a little feedback/advice. I ordered a set of P-790's on Sept 25th. The ship date went from 10/5 to 10/19. I called the other day to check on the order after reading through this discussion board and they tell me the ship date is now 11/22. Oh well, the order sat in my shopping cart for three days before I pulled the trigger so I lost valuable time deciding. LOL!
  I am currently playing Ping iE1's now with nippon modus3 105's. I hit them fairly high and I am happy with the trajectory, distance and dispersion. I have read that the 790's seem to launch a little higher than most heads so I ordered my set with the modus3 120's instead. I have only hit the 790's with the 105's inside on a cheap launch monitor and they looked to be a couple of degrees higher than my pings. The store did not have the 120's to demo so I made a choice based on my reading everything out there I could find. But now as I wait patiently, I'm wondering if I did the right thing.
  So now I am reaching out to everyone who has hit both shafts to see what insight they can give while I still have a lot of time to change my order if need be. I was even thinking of changing the order to the P-770's which I hit very well also. But I love the look of the 790's and think they might just be worth the wait! Thanks in advance.

For me the 120 launched 1° to 1.25° lower than the 105. The 120’s spin less (200-300 rpm) than the 105. If you l8ke the 105’s, I’d stick with them and maybe hard step them 1x to drop launch a fraction.

Has anyone played these with a light weight shaft like the KBS Tour 90 or the XP95?? If so what has your experience been

I have a set ordered with KBS Tour 90. Coming from Recoil's the kbs feel better and distance is up which for me is rare!!
Seem to have more control with them as dispersion seems better. I thought Recoil would be hard to beat but I may just have hit lucky!!

Just got my set, 4-PW. Not out until Monday here but mine came earlier. All I can say is wow, wow.... had the CF16 and I thought they were good.
The P790 look great, simple looks, easy to clean, no little hidden bits for dirt to hide and they go far.
I am a Scratch player, but don’t hit the ball far, today I had 180 into a decent wind, pulled out the 6 and hit it to the back of the green over 190, that for me is unheard of...
They have a lovely square almost boxy look which I love.... playing tomorrow, will let you know how it goes....
Ah man I'm being quoted 28th for mine!!!

Hey all. Just looking for a little feedback/advice. I ordered a set of P-790's on Sept 25th. The ship date went from 10/5 to 10/19. I called the other day to check on the order after reading through this discussion board and they tell me the ship date is now 11/22. Oh well, the order sat in my shopping cart for three days before I pulled the trigger so I lost valuable time deciding. LOL!
  I am currently playing Ping iE1's now with nippon modus3 105's. I hit them fairly high and I am happy with the trajectory, distance and dispersion. I have read that the 790's seem to launch a little higher than most heads so I ordered my set with the modus3 120's instead. I have only hit the 790's with the 105's inside on a cheap launch monitor and they looked to be a couple of degrees higher than my pings. The store did not have the 120's to demo so I made a choice based on my reading everything out there I could find. But now as I wait patiently, I'm wondering if I did the right thing.
  So now I am reaching out to everyone who has hit both shafts to see what insight they can give while I still have a lot of time to change my order if need be. I was even thinking of changing the order to the P-770's which I hit very well also. But I love the look of the 790's and think they might just be worth the wait! Thanks in advance.

How did you spin numbers compare? If you spin was lower then a few degrees higher launch may be desirable, right? Better to look at all the numbers and results of the combination of things than to focus on any one of them imho.

Order set yesterday (4 thru PW, AW) and they'll be here this week.  Can't believe I only made it a year before ho'ing again!

Where did you order from?  The place I called said custom orders are 3-4 weeks out.
