I see on eBay someone is selling sets of the p730 and it doesn't mention anything about not shipping until 11/1

https://www.ebay.com/itm/362091416077



"Pre Book Now for Late October Early November Release !!"

The ironic thing is that verbiage wasn't on the listing last night.

Glad to know the 730's are full forged.

The milled wasn't exactly the optimal material for Rory or Rose.  304 stainless steel has been tried by many component companies but they have always stopped using them because they were too malleable.

The only reason 304 was used is because it is the grade of metal that most closely resembles forged carbon steel in the Rockwell hardness scale, but 304 is cheap, malleable, and changes the loft/lie specs of irons especially with players of high swingspeeds.

Rory can blame his wedding and injuries for all his bad play of late, but if you check it all out, his iron stats have dropped and everything started when he switched to the 304 stainless steel (cast then milled) protos.

Well three things:

1.  This is a case where the end-consumer (us!) get a product better than the prototypes the pros use.
2.  Rory and Rose have since switched to the fully forged model and have ditched those cast 304 stainless that were milled in house.
3.  There is no way that Dustin with his swingspeed and frequency of practice would even bother gaming the cast 304 stainless proto.  I am betting he will use the production 730.

Cheers.

Rory's stats dropped when he switched to the ball and putter as well. I believe his putting stats were his best when he was using the odessey putter....

Who cares...  This thread is not about Rory's stats with his ball or putter.

They were making DJ's irons when we were at TaylorMade for the forged trip.  He hasn't switched b/c he doesn't want to do so during the season.  He's going to start testing them and will make a decision after the Presidents Cup.

I preordered mine through CapeCodGolf.com. They are also doing a 10% discount with preorders.

The Taylormade rep is taking their pre-orders and locking them in. He said they are supposedly doing a limited run of the P730's.

Not saying you are wrong, but considering TM's last forged blade offering was forever ago I can't imagine their next blade offering would be a limited run

Agreed.  I remember when people were saying the P750's were going to a LE release.  The P730's will be a full bore release.

Yep. Supply could very well be constrained initially, but there's no way this is a limited product based on what Tomo said while making the rounds to support the launch. They don't refresh their blade very often, so when they do there has to be improvements, etc. It certainly didn't sound like the way someone would talk about a limited product.

I would think you would be able to get any shaft TM offers in this line.

Anyone had a chance to demo a set of these? I saw on a AZ golf shop IG that they had demo sets availabe now.

I checked TM website and they offer nearly any shaft at no up-charge. Even Modus 130 shafts. This honestly has my considering getting a set if they offer these shafts. It's a shame Mizuno doesn't.

cdn? They're on TM's website at $1,399. I looked at the specs and there is a lot more offset in these compared to Mizuno MP18's. Double the offset in lower irons.

Ahh, I should've realized what you were referring to.

For $1800 cdn they should come with any shaft you want......

I looked at the specs and there is a lot more offset in these compared to Mizuno MP18's. Double the offset in lower irons.

Maybe I'm missing something since Mizuno lists their specs in inches and TMag lists them in millimeters, but isn't this the other way around? It appears to me that these have less offset than the MP18s, but maybe I'm converting the numbers wrong. I am American after all and we generally suck with the metric system.

Good catch. I'm digging myself into a hole today it seams.

Imperial system or nothing.  Those using metric are out of their minds.  Because  #Merica!  (I kid of course...but not really)

I had the chance to hit the MP18 and they look stellar to me, the offset was minimal at best.  If the 730s have even less and a thinner topline these things are going to be butter knives.  Might have to get a set just to have and to remind myself of the days that I could or at least thought I could play blades.
