I got fit for a set of P790s and ordered them on Oct. 30th. They are supposed to get here tomorrow (Dec. 8th). This is my first custom fit set, is this timing normal for getting fit or is it just the p790s right now?

Anyone else having this problem with the 790s?

Primarily due to the popularity of them and since you ordered them not too far from their release.  Those who get fit really early on a new release usually get them quickly, but after reviews come out and people come out and get fit it’s usually a long lead time.  Same thing happened with i200’s the beginning of the year.

I had my club pro put in an order for my 3-iron in mid to late August and I received my club in just a little over 2 weeks. Surprising to hear of such a big delay this far after release date.

I ordered mine the first day they were able to order in September. It was a custom order with MODUS shafts. Only 6-PW came in and the 4 and 5 iron were on back order. I used the set until the end of November and then had it with Taylormade. I sent the 6-PW back used and told them to keep the 4 and 5 iron. They gave me a full refund.

I also ordered my 3 wood from Taylormade on November 6th. I'm being told it won't be here until mid to late December. (Custom order with tour ad di shaft)

Starting to get really frustrated with TM, but I did get a full refund and a dozen TP5's for the iron mishap. Plus I was able to game the 790s for 2 months and change.

I just acquired a set of PXG 0311 through a friend after playing blades for the last six months and waiting on the 790s for the past almost two, so Iím not really concerned about it. Itís just going to force a difficult decision between the two when they arrive. Iím almost to the point of canceling if I werenít so curious about them

Recently by fairly decent source is that TM had planned for 50000 sets sold by now but got orders totaling 75000+. Those numbers are inclusive of those already received but still bottom line is far more have been sold than anticipated. Based on the sets being sold by individuals with little wear the used P790s may well be in your local swap shop soon.

I was finally fit for the P790's late on Monday from a local fitter and was blown away when they called yesterday the clubs were in. I am in San Diego so that helps a bit but still very surprised they were at the shop in less than 48 hours. They were ordered with the Project X LZ with custom grips. Dialing them in at home on SkyTrak as we speak. Good luck everyone......

The length of back order is related to handedness, shafts and set configuration.  TM was back ordered on some shafts and some specific iron heads 3 & 4 iron, mostly.

If your lucky, the configuration you order will be delivered in a week, if not you can wait up to 8 weeks.

I ordered mine on October 16th and received them on November 16th so I understand the backorder situation on the heads.  I really want to like these irons so while I pounded the demo iron during my fitting, it has been a different story hitting mine.  First time playing I wrote off not hitting them well because I'm changing irons for the first time in years so I assumed it might take some time to get used to them.  Played a couple more rounds and something wasn't quite right so I took them to my clubmaker and we discovered their swing weights ranged from C7 to D0, which is quite different from my irons that play at D3.  These heads must be really light and required quite a bit of tip weighting to get them up to my specs.  Hopefully when I play this weekend I'll notice a difference in them as I love their look and as I said, I hit them really well in my fitting session.  We will see I guess.

Besides my trials with the swing weights being all over the place, they still haven't credited my account for my trade in clubs that I sent to them back in October.  I keep calling TMAG Cust Svc and they keep telling me 5-7 days, but it's been over 30.  I've never had credit experience with any other OEM like this.  Maybe it's just that time of the year
