Spotted: TaylorMade P-790 irons (updated w/ P-790 UDI)

Published

Update: 8/2/17 2:30 p.m.

On Wednesday, Jason Day was testing a “P-790 UDI” 2 iron on the range at the 2017 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Check out the gallery below, and see what GolfWRX members are saying about the P-790 UDI iron in our forums.

We spotted Jon Rahm testing a TaylorMade “P-790” 3-iron at the 2017 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational on Tuesday. Given the “P-790” stamping on the iron, it may be an addition to TaylorMade’s P-Family, which currently includes TaylorMade’s P-750 Tour Proto and P-770 irons released earlier in 2017.

We only saw Rahm testing a long iron on the range, which could mean the P-790 is a driving iron model. Like the P-750 and P-770 irons, the “P-790” iron is stamped with “Tungsten,” which is a dense material that’s often used to move weight in a golf club to make it more forgiving.

We will update this story as more information becomes available.

    If the tungsten weight is only in the toe, it will move the COG outside of the geographic center of the club. Pros will have no problem closing the face, hell, I’ve been putting lead tape on the toe of clubs for decades. It slows down my rate of closure and allows me to play a minor draw while making it easier the hit a cut on both irons and woods. I get questions every week about my choice of tape placement, and I tell them what’s what, ussually they don’t understand. I also place tape on the crown of certain FW clubs to raise the COG, usually adding only 3-4 swing weights per club. Similar to putting the heavy weights on TM clubs high or toe biased to achieve desired flight for the current golf balls. Used to be more important with balata covered balls, they spin 50 – 100 % more than current offerings. I loved the double covered Bridgestones of the 90’s. Longer than ProV1’s, cheaper. Would like to see low toe weight biased 3 – 5 irons, split weight tungsten 6 – PW MBs in 730’s, current gamers Nicklaus Muirfieds reshafted in current shafts. Ultimate blades I love more than my two sets of 712MB’s.

    Great additions from TM this week! My new set up will be then P790 3 iron added to my existing P770 4-6, and add in the P730 7-PW. Trackman the distances, Tweak the lofts and I’m good to go for the next 3 years.

    So I’m guessing the new players lineup would be: P-790 = new TP driving iron (UDI),
    P-770 = new TP CB, P-750 = new TP MC, so P-730 = Rors/Rose Proto = new TP MB???

    The 790 looks like an old bite off the early 90’s TMag ICW clubhead design crossed with the current Proto/750 clubhead design.

    im not sure they mentioned that Tungsten was just added to the toe did they. if they placed it in the toe and heal of the club would this not make it more forgiving by reducing the rotation of the club on off center hits? AKA AP2 irons

Puma unveils new Ignite Fasten8 golf shoe

Published

on

Puma Golf has today introduced the newest addition to its popular spikeless franchise: the Ignite Fasten8.

The new Ignite Fasten8 ($120) family are designed to provide wearers added stability with a new, exacting fit in multiple sleek designs, featuring both a traditional lace-up style and Puma’s proprietary DISC technology, and also a PRO version with a microfiber upper. The Fasten8 lace version is also available in several eye-catching colorways for women ($100).

The lineup is led by Puma’s new Fasten8 Fit System, which consists of 8 interior webbing support straps that are integrated into the lacing system. The 8 webbing straps are secured from underneath the foot, and when the laces, or Disc, are tightened, each of the Fasten8 straps aims to deliver an exceptionally secure, personalized fit for players with all foot shapes and sizes.

The Fasten8 also features PWRCAGE (a TPU saddle integrated with midfoot support webbing straps), and PWRFRAME (an ultra-thin TPU frame placed in high-stress areas) technologies, both of which are designed to contribute to greater overall stability during the swing and increased comfort while walking. 

Speaking on the new additions from Puma, Andrew Lawson, PLM, Footwear, Puma Golf said

“The new Ignite Fasten8 shoe continues to deliver the cool, classic style that has become synonymous with PUMA Golf, in a popular mix of colorways that will appeal to a wide range of playersWhen you combine our innovative new Fasten8 Fit System with Puma’s other impressive footwear technologies you have a shoe that delivers true versatility, style and performance, all while ensuring the perfect fit and feel for every golfer.” 

Enhanced comfort and performance in a variety of turf conditions (or even for wear off the course) is provided by a strategically designed, organically-altered traction pattern in the sole, as well as IGNITE Foam in the midsole, which bids to yield energy return and cushioning throughout the course of 18 holes.

The Fasten8 shoe also features a non-stretch, waterproof and breathable mesh construction in the forefoot area, which bids to provide versatile performance in varying weather conditions and SoleShield, a micro-thin TPU film that is vacuum-formed around the midsole to make cleaning off dirt and debris quick and easy. In addition, the Fasten8 Pro features a microfiber upper for style and performance.

Puma’s Ignite Fasten8 and Ignite Fasten8 Disc are available in six colorways in sizes 7-14. Ignite Fasten8 Pro is available in five colorways in the same size range, while Ignite Fasten8 Women’s is available in sizes 5.5-12 in four colorways.

You can check out all of the color offerings over at pumagolf.com. The Fasten8 family will be available online and at retail from March 2.

Vokey launches new Slate Blue finish on SM8 wedges

Published

on

Looks are important when it comes to having confidence in your clubs, and with that in mind, Titleist is releasing a new Slate Blue finish for its Vokey SM8 wedge line.

The slate blue finish is applied just like a standard PVD (physical vapor deposition) finish but involves using a unique material that increases the production time. The result of the material and additional time is a rich deep finish that not only looks great but also has a longer life compared to traditional PVD.

“Very often, wedge finishes can be beautiful, but they won’t last,” said Vokey. “At the same time, the most durable finishes often aren’t stunning. Slate Blue combines the two. Not only will golfers love their wedge when they see it in the shop, the finish will last through the course of normal play.”

When it comes to technology the Slate Blue Vokey wedges offer the same progressive forward center of gravity for increased MOI and ball flight control, along with 100-percent inspected spin milled grooves.

Price and availability

Vokey Design SM8 Slate Blue wedges will be available in golf shops starting March 19, and will be available in all 23 loft, bounce, and grind options in both right and left-handed.

The wedges will be priced at $199 in their stock configuration which features a True Temper Dynamic Gold S200 and custom BV Wings New Decade Multi Compound grip from Golf Pride.

Additional customizations such as character stamping are available for an additional fee.
