Coming Soon: TaylorMade P-730 MB Irons?

Published

on

Earlier this week, we spotted TaylorMade’s new P-790 irons, which were being tested as driving irons by Jon Rahm and Jason Day at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. They’re the likely replacements for TaylorMade’s UDI (Ultimate Driving Iron) that was released in 2014, and it’s not a stretch to think that TaylorMade will release a full set of the P-790 to add a longer-flying, more-forgiving option to its new P-700 iron series to market.

Thanks to a social media post from Senior Director of TaylorMade Irons, Tomo Bystedt, we now also know to be on the lookout for another new P-700 series iron set. Bystedt tweeted that Dustin Johnson could soon be making a switch to the company’s new P-730 irons.

Johnson also confirmed in a Twitter post that he’s testing the P-730 irons.

The P-730 irons look a lot like the “Rors Proto” and “Rose Proto” irons that are being used on the PGA Tour by Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose, which are muscleback irons. That’s a good indication of a potential Johnson switch, as the 2016 U.S. Open Champion has been a steadfast user of TaylorMade’s Tour Preferred MB irons since they were released in 2014.

    blades this blades that..blah blah blah. Who cares? All forged blades behave nearly identical. Tweak the lie, loft, weight amd use the same shaft youve been using for years and basically youve just managed to spend money for essentially that same stuff you had. Sure they look nice but whats the point? Anything you hit pure will feel like butter. How mich softer can butter be?

    I love that rippled channel and rubbing my finger in it.

    Very nice looking set of blades…they look very much like my old set of MacGregor 985 blades. Timeless classic design, indeed!

    The fact that your attempts at trashing back fails so miserably is precisely what makes you the very female that you say are slagging you off. Sounds like you’re one heck of a girl with nobody’s lap to cry on

    Golfers playing old equipment need new clubs every year. New clubs are not made for the “Neurotic gearheads will continue to slobber over new models”. Most are made for golfers playing older equipment that need new clubs. What are those playing MP33’s or 690MB’s that have rusted and worn out their groves supposed to do? Quit playing?

      You send them back to The Iron Factory and they come back looking and playing as though they are brand new. I’m still playing 680 mb’s and just had mine refinished; couldn’t be happier!

    I make that 310 new sets of irons from TM in the last six years.

    Really, does that channel do anything other than separate the top from the bottom? Why does it have to have such separation in design with any blade? Why not just make the blade a blade and make it all one-slash flat design with no indentation, no channel, no cut muscle, no perimeter edging, but just make it nice and flush flat clean, with just some name graphics.

      I would venture to say the removed material from the channel can be redistributed in the head to tweak the COG. Am looking forward to exchanging the 730 short irons for my 7-PW in my existing 770 set.

    It’s a blade. Only so much tech you can have in a blade. For the blade lover these clubs will be eye catching and they will want to test them and put them in play, for guys who don’t like blades, there is nothing to see here. I for one hope they are available soon as I would love to have blades back in the bag and replace the 770s (which are a lovely set of clubs in their own right!)

    Been playing these same design heads for 35 years. It’s a billet of steel smushed into function. KYEOI would be my first thought as to whom is forging these…look at the mp18 and you will see the same look. The more things change in this game the more they stay the same. SHAFTS are what has changed; allowing any player to dial in feel, flight, weight, etc. Grips technology as well.

    Duh. These teasers are getting old. Just release it and see how it plays. It’s been three years or more since their last MB. We all knew this was coming.

Players hybrid or chunky utility iron? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing club choices. WRXer ‘ernotte’ is weighing up either using a “players hybrid or chunky utility iron” and kicks off the thread saying:

“Due to gapping, I’m going to get rid of my utility iron (410 crossover) and hybrid (original Rogue) and replace them with one club. I’m not sure if I want to go with a players hybrid (thinking Apex Pro) or a chunkier utility iron (thinking U505). Does anyone have experience making a decision similar to this? I’d be curious to hear your reasoning why you went one way or another. 

I like the utility iron better off the tee, but the hybrid for most other situations, so I’m leaning towards a hybrid. For what it’s worth, I hover between a 1 and 4 handicap.”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts on the matter in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • B.Easy: “I’ve made this decision and kept both. Driving iron for links or when there is little rough. Hybrid when I’m playing thick or long rough. To further expose my ho’ing– I have the Ping Crossover and PXG driving iron. PXG when I’m playing in the wind and using off the tee more. Ping when I’m playing a course with long par 3’s and need to land soft. I play a lot of different tracks all over the west every year and enjoy these clubs for different course set ups.”
  • Bye: “Hybrid, all day long. Even when going to a windy links course in the summer.”
  • chipa: “This is a great topic. I have been trying to fill the 50+ yd. Gap between my 4i and 3w, and I tried various hybrids, but they weren’t consistent. Then based on the advice of many, I got a 20 deg. 7 wood and hit as good most of the time, but given the perennial wind at my home course it turns out to be no longer than my 4 iron into the wind. I have looked at some bulky driving irons, but since I like the look of a blade at address I can’t convince myself I can hit them. Finally, I found an 18 deg. players hybrid with an adjustable face so I can turn it open 1 deg. I’m going to use a steel shaft too, and hopefully, between the two, I can hit it consistently.”
  • jholz: “One of the toughest spots in to fill in the bag – to be sure. Lots of good options. I like hybrids. Players hybrids. For my money, they offer the best combination of versatility.”

What is the benefit of using a wedge instead of PW or GW from the iron set? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the pros and cons of using a pitching or gap wedge from an iron set. WRXer ‘jpark0221’ kicks off the thread, asking:

“What is the benefit of doing this instead of using PW from the iron set, which is essentially 10i? I see a lot of pros using wedges from different brands (e.g. Vokey) instead of PW from the same set.”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • North Butte: “The only way you’ll know is try a different (specialty) wedge instead of the one marked P and see how it works. Give it a couple of dozen rounds, you can’t really tell whether a wedge has an advantage until you get used to playing various shots with it. My point being…they play those wedges because it’s what works best for their game. And you ought to play what works best for your game too. Your best choice won’t necessarily be the same type of club as someone else’s.”
  • Jc0: “If you look a little closer, you’ll notice that most pros who have a specialty 46/48 wedge usually play cavity backs. The speciality wedge is more blade-like to allow a little more control and the ability to play shots a little easier than the PW that matches their set would provide. If a pro plays blades, they usually have the same blade for PW.”
  • PureStrikes54: “Flighting shots lower, getting additional spin for stopping power and to hit it shorter, and minimizing the chance of hitting flier moon balls you can sometimes get with even players cavity irons. At that level, very few players want to be hitting their pitching wedge more than 150 yards. The wedge is a scoring club and is almost always being used to hit knockdowns to tweener yardages.”
