Title says it.  Have you switched from the MP15 to the P770's (or even hit them head to head?)  Are the Taylormade's a worthy upgrade or are the 15's still better?

P770 has better feel for me, and I personally liked the looks of them better than the mp-15, and Im a mizuno guy with mp-18 mb

Whoever switches from a Mizuno iron to a TM iron needs to be punished...and flogged..

Only hit p770 7 iron on trackman.  Its pretty strong.  I would worry about gapping.  I hear some people have big gaps going into short irons.   Low spin also concerns me.  

Other thing that I think distance control is bad.  If I have an approach shot i want to know for certain I wont fly the green.  All the game improvement irons Ive played or tried, I will hit one that flys 10 yards farther.  I would rather be a little short then long

Like the P770 more for sure at first glance for the quick iron shots I had (headed to range tonight).  I have TP MB's as well that I have owned a few times which i personally seem to like better.  Guess I'm mental?

Are you talking about the P770, or do you mean the P790 irons?  In my view, the P770s are fairly simple forged cavity back irons.  I have played them a number of rounds and have not experienced big gaps or low spin.

Sorry, I did mean p790.  Must have misread the OP.  I haven’t hit p770.  P750 are very nice though.

I switched from mp64s to p770s. Just built a set of mp53s that I’ll probably be playing this year. I was striping the p770 when I was fit, but haven’t gotten comfortable with them. The demo club felt good that day but the actual set doesn’t feel anywhere near as good as the mizunos. I’m going to play with the lie angles this spring a bit, but don’t have much confidence the p770s will stay in my bag.

Just hit the P770's on grass.  Wonderful iron and honestly, mishits are mishits and yeah they fly a tad farther and more online (dependent of face angle of course) than my blade on horrible shots but the 15's seemed just the same when I had them.  To be honest I don't really love the larger sole on the P770 but it does seem to work okay in the dirt. Also they had an oddly small but present metallic sound as opposed to the MP 15 soft sound.  Back before i ever hit them, I always expected the 15's then to have a weird noise like the 58's had for me, that hard sound, but they just didn't.

***Update*** was totally the ball I used, didn't realize I was hitting a different sleeve of balls.  The TM are as soft as the Mizuno here.  

IDK, i like both but honestly, I can say the P770's are really a bit better than the MP 15's especially for possible"forgiveness" due to the low tungsten of the longer irons.
