For those with gapping issues, did you have lofts checked? And why wouldnít you just adjust the lofts to accommodate any gapping issues?

That’s what I did. Took the guy about an hour to bend 3-PW to my specs.

Took my P790 with Modus Tour 120, to Mesquite this weekend.  So far, I have a wondering eye.  While I did hit a few great long irons, the rest of the set leaves me pretty flat.  I guess maybe I'm suffering from "Nothing feels like a Mizuno" withdrawals.  My JPX 800 pro's feel a lot softer and fly almost as far.    Oh, what to do.  I bought them at the PGA Tour SuperStore, so I can exchange them in 90 days. Been reading the P790 or Cobra TEC Black thread, but I think it's really a "The CObra are way better than the P790 thread".  
  Anyone have any advice for a skeptical new owner?

I went to get fitted for a set if 718 AP2 irons. My numbers showed too much spin so I tried the 790s. I bought the P790s and an M3 driver. When I first hit them I absolutely fell in love with the M3 right away. I just liked the irons at first. After a few times with them I must admit, I am falling in love with the irons as well. They are long and straight and I still hit them high. So far very happy!!

if you have legit free returns (not sure the pgass policy) then I would buy whatever other set and play with both on the same day. maybe front nine back nine. I got the forged tec today and so far love them but had I gone p790 I probably would have loved them as well. hit both. return what doesnít win.

That’s what I did. Took the guy about an hour to bend 3-PW to my specs.
Here is a spreadsheet I had my pro make for me when he finished adjusting my P790s. The 50-60 wedges were off the rack Milled Grind wedges from TM. The 50 was almost a full 3 degrees strong. The lies were not to bad. Think they made my set before a Friday afternoon tee time.

Waiting on my set to ship, but this is my fear as well.  I've hit the 7i on launch monitors and it's been ranging from 190-215 which is too big of a gap.  Hoping it was crappy monitors at PGASS

:lol:  I 100% don't even want those yardages!!!  I just want consistent, reliable numbers... What sucks about fitting/demo too is that they only have one head. I would've loved to hit some 5i and 9i in addition to 7i before I bought, given the unusual loft gapping throughout the bag with these.  I guess I'll see soon enough.  I definitely plan on getting my specs checked like you did.

I would just have them dial the lofts back a bit if you are hitting them farther than you would like. I have a personal launch monitor and I have seen consistent numbers throughout the bag with these irons. Probably more consistent than other irons, given the level of forgiveness these have.

It's not a humblebrag, it's a complaint. These things are not built for a high swing speed player. Just potentially too long.

I mean... there are plenty of these irons in the bag of tour players. I would say they are high swing speed players.

Mostly UDI and 3 irons though, where distance doesn't have to be as precise and getting those extra 10-20 yards sometimes is not as detrimental as mid irons

Interesting, just found this:

“Jason hits it and I’m reading out the numbers for him — 256 carry, 275 total, crazy numbers — and he’s not even really trying to hit it that far,” Bystedt explained. “He’s shaping the ball, hitting a couple low shots, a couple of high shots. I mean you could see it in his face. Like, really? He hits a few more balls, walks over to his bag, takes out his old long iron, hands it to me and says, ‘I don’t need this anymore.’ He signed the face for me and that club is in my office now.”

As it turned out Day was not the only staffer who quickly bought into the idea of a hollow, soft, 4140 carbon steel head that is cavity filled, tungsten weighted and constructed with a wrapped face. Rahm is testing a P790 two-iron as a potential replacement for his UDi, “this allows him to work the ball a bit more,” Bystedt said. Dustin Johnson has also given the engineer thumbs up, although he too remains in test mode (long iron replacement) at least until the end of the season.

Somewhat surprising was Beau Hossler and Camilo Villegas ordering full sets, 4-PW, to put in play.

“There is more interest in full sets than I would have figured,” added Bystedt. “Hossler came into the truck, sees them, takes them to the range, then comes back to Wade (Liles) and says; “Why wouldn’t I play these?”

https://scoregolf.co...ther-the-p790s/


Can't find a recent WITB for either of those guys.  Anyone know if they actually have more than 1 or 2 790s in play?

I hear you on a lot of those points. I'm just simply reporting what I'm seeing (so far in small sample size) and so is mason82. I've seen you get very defensive earlier in this thread... I think you can dial that back a bit.  No doubt these irons are game changers for a lot of people, but like everything else it may not work for everyone. I have no reasons to be making up these numbers... I want this set to work!

Only one way to find out bro. Let me know how they work out for you. Hopefully after you get all of the specs tailored to your game you see better results. If nothing else, sell them and play a different iron! I’ve got 4 different sets of irons in rotation, and while these irons are great, they are not the only thing out there. If they don’t fit your game, they don’t fit your game!

... I agree with everything you said, other than being defensive and did not think you were making up numbers at all. Distance irons by definition are not for everyone. Really any iron is not for everyone and the reason we are all here giving different opinions about the clubs we play. However, comments like "massive fliers" and "nothing special abut these other than the finish" deserve a contrary reply because many feel they are indeed very special.  I think IF you are in the market for a forgiving, distance players iron the P790's should be at the top of the list. I hate to think some may be scared off by the claims of fliers and inconsistency, especially if the lofts and lies are not checked and adjusted. That said, they may not suit your's or anyones game as there are no one size fits all golf clubs. Tex_time just said it best " they are not the only thing out there. If they don’t fit your game, they don’t fit your game!"

I hear you on a lot of those points. I'm just simply reporting what I'm seeing (so far in small sample size) and so is mason82. I've seen you get very defensive earlier in this thread... I think you can dial that back a bit.  No doubt these irons are game changers for a lot of people, but like everything else it may not work for everyone. I have no reasons to be making up these numbers... I want this set to work!
Only one way to find out bro. Let me know how they work out for you. Hopefully after you get all of the specs tailored to your game you see better results. If nothing else, sell them and play a different iron! I’ve got 4 different sets of irons in rotation, and while these irons are great, they are not the only thing out there. If they don’t fit your game, they don’t fit your game!

The crappy thing at least for me is that I was custom fit for these at Club Champion. It took 4 hours. Mine should be perfect but they are far from it because of the crazy distance I can get.

Interesting, just found this:

“Jason hits it and I’m reading out the numbers for him — 256 carry, 275 total, crazy numbers — and he’s not even really trying to hit it that far,” Bystedt explained. “He’s shaping the ball, hitting a couple low shots, a couple of high shots. I mean you could see it in his face. Like, really? He hits a few more balls, walks over to his bag, takes out his old long iron, hands it to me and says, ‘I don’t need this anymore.’ He signed the face for me and that club is in my office now.”

As it turned out Day was not the only staffer who quickly bought into the idea of a hollow, soft, 4140 carbon steel head that is cavity filled, tungsten weighted and constructed with a wrapped face. Rahm is testing a P790 two-iron as a potential replacement for his UDi, “this allows him to work the ball a bit more,” Bystedt said. Dustin Johnson has also given the engineer thumbs up, although he too remains in test mode (long iron replacement) at least until the end of the season.

Somewhat surprising was Beau Hossler and Camilo Villegas ordering full sets, 4-PW, to put in play.

“There is more interest in full sets than I would have figured,” added Bystedt. “Hossler came into the truck, sees them, takes them to the range, then comes back to Wade (Liles) and says; “Why wouldn’t I play these?”

Can't find a recent WITB for either of those guys.  Anyone know if they actually have more than 1 or 2 790s in play?


Hossler was playing P770s in February: http://www.golfwrx.c...t-pebble-beach/

Villegas was playing the same, but clearly with modified lofts: http://www.golfwrx.c...8-genesis-open/

Not sure bro. I’ve never had any issue with fliers. I custom ordered my 3 iron with AD95 driving iron shaft, my 4 iron with KBS Tour 120, and 5-PW with DG 105, so I have a decent sample size on shaft and head combo. Maybe either have them double checked are far as specs? Either that or just sell them bro. If you don’t like them don’t force them to work. Just my opinion.

Another round with these, and more massive fliers. 185 out with a 6 iron and I nailed it. 22 yards past the pin. Nice clubs, but I just can't control them.
I've only played them a few times and I don't think I've seen massive fliers, however I do see them from time to time at home on my Skytrak.  When I see those, they seem to be on hits lower on the face.  Skytrak doesn't have club info, but the long balls feel low on the face.  BTW, I've only seen this on 4i-7i.

Still waiting to hit the course with mine, but from what I hit at Roger Dunns, and the few i have lauched into the pasture next to me, they feel absolutely amazing.  Not a TM guy on irons usually, but these are a different animal.  Going to take a few rounds to adjust to the lofts but once i can get those distances down I think I will be very happy.

For what itís worth, my distance and control were all over the place until I added three strips of lead tape. I was about to hate them and go back to my p790. Granted Iím not a high swing speed player but Iím very strong (gym rat). Now that the weight is up, I hit them on the button consistently and get much more repeatable results.

I also added lead tape to mine, loving them.
