Looks great!  I’m sure it would look awful after you start hitting balls with it though.

The more choices the better IMHO. They should be spec'd out the same. Although i imagine we are not far away from the first full red coloured set.

Are those PVD'd?  They look awesome but certainly I would be worried about ever hitting them off anything but perfect fairways.  I love the stock satin finish for sure as well

Looks to be a PVD or gloss nitride type finish...IE a chemical change to the surface of the metal and not a paint. Which is good.

Maybe someone has a shop, and did them as a one-off? Seems like a weird one for TM to mass produce.

Looks pretty sweet, but would like matte black better. Good points made about the finish wearing off, but that goes the same for my SM6 Jet black wedges too. Hasn't really bothered me all the much. That website selling says its Limited Edition for Europe only, only 500 sets made

Interesting website, and not to derail the discussion...but really...

₤2244 + VAT for PXG's! At the current conversion rate, that's the better part of $3600!

Insane! There's no way they could be that much better! Where does Bob Parsons come off forcing poor UK golfers to pay that kind of price?!

Haha, Following the PXG pricing model.

Seems a little unreasonable to ask $1600 for a full set when it's just cosmetic upgrades. Unless this finish is going to last forever, that seems a little ridiculous.

They look great but wondering how the finish would hold up. UDI still available to order from the Taylormade Canada site as of this morning.  Ordered one weeks ago and expect to receive it any day now.

So a $300 upgrade for the black with the new all black Dynamic gold 105 shafts.

If the finish is durable that seems like a reasonable up charge cost for finishing.  However I'm not sure I trust Taylormade on the durability of a finish yet.

But they sure look sharp, I will give them that.

Dear Taylormade:  I do like my wedges black, but definitely not my irons!.. :taunt:

Below is another pic of the upcoming 790 'Black Series'... :ninja:   (Note the red screw... :angry22: ...Ugly IMO)

This is all about extending the life of a popular clubline that TM can't figure out how to improve .. :yes:
