anyone use the 3i as a DI?

I am kicking around a black 790 3i with black DG105/S300, just for fun.

I have a P790 3 iron I bought for this purpose.  Haven't been super impressed with the club myself.  Hate the feel of it compared to my current 3 iron.  It does go longer (lower loft), might play around with it some more but right now I feel like I will be taking it out of the bag soon.

If anyone has any of the black tour velvets with the orange cap that comes on the Black P790ís and wants to part with them give me a shout. I can purchase or trade some stock gray ones that come on the Chrome P790ís. I had the black/orange installed on my chrome ones but would like a couple extra for a couple other clubs. I put gray on my wedges yesterday but like to do black/orange on a couple others.

Mostly my personal opinion... however, with my set up I've had massive consistency issues with it. It "feels"/"felt" like the club head slips under the ball with out compressing it. I was hitting it 135 out to 150. It could have been a bad shaft or a bad ... due to the head sheering off at the top of the hozel two days ago during a full swing.
Pictures Please as you must be the only one that this has happened too. Sorry to hear that, I would just make the switch to something else as where did you buy these irons? Im sure TM will take care of it for you with no problem. Post something on your new purchase as I'm totally satisfied with my P790's and would trade them in on another brand. I know others out there are just as good as too many positive reviews out there to make me feel as if I should have bought something else. Mainly it's because of how well I hit these on the course. Good luck in whatever your next purchase may be.

Why did you assume he’s ditching the whole set and getting replacement clubs? He said he has had issues with the P-wedge, not the whole set.

...And what does “I’m totally satisfied with my P790s and would trade them in on a new brand” mean? Why would you trade them in on something different if you’re 100% satisfied with them?

It just sounded like he was un happy with his purchase. I did say I'm sure TM would fix his club for him as I also meant I would not trade my set in on anything else out there, I Love mine.  Typo on my part, it has been corrected. I just finish a good round where I was even par thru 7 then boogied the last 2 holes thanks to bad shots with my Ryoma 3W and SM7 52* and ended up shooting par for 9 holes. So far after a dozen rounds I'm averaging 80% GIR and 68.7% Fairways hit. Putting and short game needs a lot of work.

I averaged 80% GIR last Saturday. On the front nine. Well, if you don't count the last four holes.

But I was on a roll there for a while.

I know but I don't play on the same courses that the Pro's play on, my par 5's are their par 4's. I need to clarify as I'm 80% when I hit the fairway. Overall I'm under 70%. I'm around 64% hitting Fairways which helps me with my scoring. In fact I'm sure that the courses I play on are not as tough as most of the people on this forum play on. I've also only played a dozen times.  I'm just so satisfied with my P790's as my job is so demanding I'm lucky to get out once a week but as I stated once before these irons have gave me more birdie opportunities per round than anything else I've ever played.

I don’t think the demo clubs have did justice. I won’t be playing until Sunday or hitting anything outside until then but hitting shots into the net the first word that comes to mind based on feel and sound is POWERFUL.

... Looking forward to your opinion after hitting your P790's for several rounds. I did find the PW launched a little higher and spun just a little less than previous Player Irons wedges I have had in my bag and it took a slight adjustment period to get used to the minimal increase in distance. Gapping just took some patience and getting used to before dialing them in and knowing what to expect, so just be aware that it may or may not happen for you. Especially since you have the AW.

Other then the new Bridgestone combo (visually, but if they feel like J15, instant bag worthy)...I don't think there's a better combo set then 790s and 750s (730 MB if you're a good ballstriker).

When I get new irons for some reason I get the itch to look at wedges of the same brand. The 54* is always up on the block but the 58* PM grind is hard to knock out. I could see a Hi-Toe maybe taking that spot. Maybe a 54* MG. I’ll stay pat for now though.

The jury is still out for my 790 G wedge or keep using my faithful Mizuno JPX900 forged G wedge. Appearance the 900 wins, and havenít had enough real world chances to direct compare other than the range and there they are comparable.

Going through the PGA tour Superstore, TM is replacing my M2s for the faces caving in. Essentially theyíll give me a new set of M3s to either keep or use for store credit to whatever I want. I havenít tried the M3s, but I loved the feel of the P790s when I tried them out previously. The reason I didnít get them previously was because I wasnít sure I was ready to play them. Now Iím at a roughly 10 handy.

These seem like a good club to bridge the gap between gi and players Irons. Or I could be off on that.

Anyone playing the P790's in graphite?  I'm loving my 790's with DG 105 but have been getting sore elbows recently.  

I picked up a set of Callaway CF16 with Recoil Prototype 110's from CPO that should be here next week to try out but am already wondering about swapping the Recoils into the 790's if I like them.

Played the 790's again today and shot 36 and missed 2 additional birdie putts. The 790's are as accurate an iron as I have played and the extra distance has been nice.  

Have shot 38, 41, 43, 42 and 36 with the 790's since I have had them and those are great rounds for me.

... I played my first set with Recoil 95's and my second set has Recoil 95 Prototypes in them. I absolutely love the combination. On 16 today I had 191 to carry a nasty bunker with very deep grass surrounding it today and the pin in back. Normally I would just play left of the bunker but needing a birdie to break 70, I decided to go right at the pin because I know my P790 4 iron was good to cover that yardage as it is my 195-205 club. Cleared the bunker and stopped 10 feet short of the pin. I honestly would not have tried that shot with any other 4 iron I have played, I would have just played 5-10 yds left of the bunker.

That's what I want to hear.  I did play Cushin inserts in my Ping irons in the past which helped somewhat but thought I would give Recoils a try after reading a lot of positive  reviews

Cleared the bunker and stopped 10 feet short of the pin. I honestly would not have tried that shot with any other 4 iron I have played, I would have just played 5-10 yds left of the bunker.
So you are just going to leave us hanging?  Did you make the putt?  Or is the putter on the BST?

Anyone playing the P790's in graphite?  I'm loving my 790's with DG 105 but have been getting sore elbows recently.  

I picked up a set of Callaway CF16 with Recoil Prototype 110's from CPO that should be here next week to try out but am already wondering about swapping the Recoils into the 790's if I like them.

Played the 790's again today and shot 36 and missed 2 additional birdie putts. The 790's are as accurate an iron as I have played and the extra distance has been nice.  

Have shot 38, 41, 43, 42 and 36 with the 790's since I have had them and those are great rounds for me.

... I played my first set with Recoil 95's and my second set has Recoil 95 Prototypes in them. I absolutely love the combination.

... LOL, long story short I did not make the putt. I had been playing a little too much break all day and had already lipped out 3 birdie putts with 3 more not even touching the hole. I am sure you can guess, but I played less break and it turned left out of the hole the last foot or so. Story of my round.

That's what I want to hear.  I did play Cushin inserts in my Ping irons in the past which helped somewhat but thought I would give Recoils a try after reading a lot of positive  reviews

As someone that has Recoil 95 Prototypes in my G25 irons and the reason for going there was tennis elbow, I switched to the Prosoft inserts inside my Modus 105 iron on my P790s. I still hit off mats and I still love the feel of iron shaft and it is even softer feel with greatly reduced vibrations. I've used them for 2 seasons now, originally in my Anser irons and now I inserted them inside the P790s when I regripped with the Grip Master perforated leather grips. At 50c each insert, best value around and they do not rust like the True Temper sensicores. They weigh next to nothing and has no/minimal impact to swingweight. Check them out before an expensive reshaft..

... I had a pretty severe case of tennis elbow and none of the inserts worked for me. I tried them all including Prosoft and some home made versions. It wasn't until I switched to NV Tour graphite iron shafts that I got relief. Many others have found inserts didn't work for their elbow problems. I have never gone back to steel. Obviously your milage did vary but I think you might be in the minority.

Sounds like they would be worth a try for me in my 790's.  Where is the best place to buy them?

I can just remove the grips and insert them and then reinstall the grips?

Never mind... Found them on Value Golf and ordered a set to install in my 790's.

I'll give them a try vs the CF16 Recoil Prototype 110's once I have them.
