When you buy a Shapland product, you know that you are not just getting the best made product money can buy, but the best designed product of its kind.”

Our Take on Shapland’s Sunday bag

Shapland’s Sunday bag is built for comfort and for those walkers out there on the course; it’s a detail which is impossible to overlook. One of the best features of this bag delivers that comfort through the two shoulder straps which are billed as “cushion-like” – a description which is a very accurate assessment. An added benefit of these straps is also the fact that these cushion straps are removable, which gives players options depending on the way they like to carry their bag on the course.

The bag’s lightness is a wonderful relief. Weighing in at just 3.5lbs, the Sunday bag is an excellent walker’s bag and combined with the cushion straps, really provides the low maintenance and practicality which walkers seek on the course.

The bag contains a 4-way cushioned divider which, like the entire bag, is very pleasing on the eye and the bag also boasts an impressive full-length spine rod, and the overall balance of the bag is on point. While lightweight is the priority of a bag such as this, the company have gone to extra lengths to deliver quality, and the premium leather trim enhances the style of the bag, while the actual feel of the bag is luxurious and of excellent quality.

The UV resistant and water-resistant canvas fabric provides you with ultimate protection against the elements which you might not expect to find in a lightweight bag such as this, while the waterproof zippers are another delightful addition of a bag which mixes nostalgia with modernity. The classic colors provided also add to the style, with navy, black, gray, burgundy, and green color codes available.

Generous storage areas on such a lightweight bag is another excellent element provided by Shapland, while the waterproof head comes in the same color as the bag keeping in line with the classic look. Shapland also offers custom embroidery on the bottom of the bag—if personalization is your thing.

Nailing everything you’d want in a lightweight bag while also being easy on the eye, the Shapland Sunday bag retails at $275 and is available to purchase at ShaplandBags.com.

    When I saw the leather spine on the Shapland and how it extends above the top of the bag–for improved balance–I thought of the truly original design that I found in a thrift store back in the ’80s. It was the stick bag, a simple canvas golf bag with one pocket from the ’30s or ’40s that had a hickory spine extending about five inches past the top. I made a soft foam strap to replace the worn canvas strap and voila! Perfect balance. With 12 clubs, the bag rode gently on my shoulder and I didn’t even know it was there.
    Around that time, I saw a new stick bag, but it was poorly made. Inexpensive, though. I ended up trying to make my own, but without the requisite professional sewing machine to do the job properly, it didn’t work out.
    I may still have that old hickory model buried in my golf shed. The Shapland is handsome, but my heart belongs to “old hickory.”

    Or you could just get a Jones bag for $139-$159…Shapland looks poorly designed, cheap.

      I have the original stand bag. You couldn’t be more wrong on the quality. Top notch. And when they discovered an issue with 1 of the straps they mailed out a new strap. Customer service like I haven’t seen in a long time. Kudos to Shapland.

    You won’t be disappointed with a Shapland bag. I have the original design and it’s incredible, I’m always getting compliments at the course.

TaylorMade unveils all-new P770, P7MC, and P7MB irons

Published

on

TaylorMade Golf has today announced the latest evolution of its acclaimed P700 Series with the all-new P770, P7MC, and P7MB irons.

TaylorMade P770 Irons

The all-new P770 irons feature a thinner top line, less offset in long irons, and a shorter blade length when compared to the P790. With its hollow body construction and forged L-Face, the 2022 P770 is designed to provide elevated distance, forgiveness, and excellent feel in a smaller sized head.

The P770 features FLTD CG, a strategic design that positions the center of gravity (CG) lowest in long irons and progressively shifts it higher throughout the set to the shorter, weaker lofted irons. The tungsten weighting scheme in the long and middle irons has been redesigned, shifting more weight to the longer irons’ low tungsten mass and a reduction in the middle irons’ tungsten, resulting in an ascending CG through the set.

The aim behind the FLTD CG strategic design is to create easier launch and playability in the long irons while optimizing trajectory and spin in the scoring clubs. 

The P770 irons feature SpeedFoam Air, a technology introduced in 2021 with the launch of the P790. SpeedFoam Air dampens sound and strategically supports the face with a material 69 percent less dense than SpeedFoam, which was seen in the prior generation of the P770.

In addition to the added speed made possible by the thinnest P770 face TaylorMade has produced, the Thru-SlotSpeed Pocket and Inverted Cone Technology aim to help unlock increased ball speed across the face and forgiveness low in the face, where mishits happen most commonly.

“P700 Series irons need to be technical, elegant and timeless and the new P·770 design has all of that in spades. We wanted to take as much performance and hide it on the inside of the iron to where you look at it and it looks like a clean and classic iron with the pearl satin chrome finish and hint of mirror on the toe. On the inside, the technology we have poured in to this iron creates a product that we believe is truly one of one in this space.” – Matt Bovee, Director, Irons Product Creation

Specs, Availability & Pricing

  • Specs: P770 is offered in 3-PW/AW and comes equipped with KBS Tour Steel shafts (X130g, S 120g) as well as Golf Pride Z-Grip 360 in Grey/Black
  • Availability: Pre-order on December 6 at TaylorMadeGolf.com and at retail beginning January 20, 2023
  • Pricing: $1299 USD (steel) and $1499 USD (graphite)

TaylorMade P7MC Irons

The tour-inspired P7MC iron features minimal offset and perimeter weighting.

A narrow sole and tight leading edge aims to ensure consistency through the turf, while TaylorMade’s Compact Grain Forging process uses 2,000 tons of pressure, more than double the industry standard, with the additional force giving TaylorMade engineers precision control at a micro level, producing a tighter grain structure for the best possible feel and strength properties.

Compact Grain Forging seeks to deliver a refined composition inside and out, with the sophisticated craftsmanship coming to life with a satin finish and forged “Metal-T” within the cavity back.

Per TaylorMade, precision in P7MC is paramount, which is why the face of this iron is continued to be machined. Machining the face aims to ensure precision and quality with TaylorMade’s most aggressive score line geometry for exacting shot making.

“There’s no better feeling than a solidly hit forged iron. For pure ball strikers, the consistency of P7MC rivals anything in the marketplace today and has been a favorite among skilled golfers. For players who choose to combo, our cohesive design language allows you to seamlessly pair it with either P770 or P7MB. No two golfers play the game exactly alike, and one of the things I love about our P·700 Series family is the ability for golfers to personalize a set to match their needs and maintain aesthetic unity.” – Matt Bovee, TaylorMade Golf, Irons Product Creation

Specs, Availability & Pricing

  • Specs: P7MC is offered in 3-PW and come equipped with KBS Tour Steel shafts (X130g, S 120g) as well as Golf Pride Z-Grip 360 in Grey/Black
  • Availability: Pre-order on December 6 at TaylorMade Golf.com and at retail beginning January 20, 2023
  • Pricing: $1299 USD (steel) and $1499 USD (graphite) as seven-piece sets

TaylorMade P7MB Irons

As a result of detailed feedback from testing with Rory McIlroy and Collin Morikawa, the P7MB features a shorter blade length, brand new sole geometry, and progressive offset to create a minimalist profile that’s designed to control shot shape and trajectory.

The sole of P7MB is one millimeter narrower than the previous generation, meaning TaylorMade engineers had to add slightly more bounce to the leading edge which creates a completely different sensation through the turf. Total effective bounce is a combination of sole width and bounce angle, which engineers were able to perfect by increasing the bounce angle to keep the sole from getting caught in the turf.

The shorter blade length of P7MB allowed TaylorMade engineers to create an updated backbar using symmetrical geometry. This allows for more mass to be positioned directly behind the face to support the point of impact and elevate feel.

In addition, the P7MB also features the Compact Grain Forging and machined face and grooves that are also seen in the P7MC irons.

“The narrower sole width of P7MB is a direct result of testing and feedback from Rory McIlroy, Collin Morikawa and our TaylorMade Tour pros. Rory and Collin worked with us to identify the right sole geometry and bounce to match what they were looking for and we perfected that with P7MB. Having two of the best players in the world being a driving force behind the design of this iron have us extremely excited to bring it to the marketplace.” – Matt Bovee, Director, Irons Product Creation

  • Specs: P7MB is offered in 3-PW and come equipped with KBS Tour Steel shafts (X130g, S 120g) as well as Golf Pride Z-Grip 360 in Grey/Black
