TaylorMade P770, P750 Tour Proto Irons

TaylorMade released its latest irons, the P770 and P750, for accomplished players on Wednesday, and both models will be available in March.

The P770’s have a thin topline, narrow sole and minimal offset, which most accomplished players prefer. The face, which progressively gets thicker from top to bottom, and the hosel are forged from 1025 carbon steel. Weight saved by making the hosel shorter and the face thinner was redistributed into a 70-gram tungsten bar in the back of the 3-7 irons.

The P770 3-7 irons have a tungsten weight designed behind the hitting area.

A critical aspect of the P770 irons is that golfers will not see the tungsten at address. Adding the weight lowers the center of gravity in the long and mid irons, which should make it easier to hit higher shots that descend more vertically and stop faster.

The 8-iron through attack wedge have a forged cavity-back design. The P770 has a higher moment of inertia for consistent strikes and more forgiveness, and the lower center of gravity should provide a higher launch angle.

The P750 Tour Proto irons are true forged blades with shallow cavities and are made with forged carbon steel. The faces and grooves are CNC milled to ensure precision, as is the cavity. TaylorMade said that milling the back of the clubs ensures the face thickness, center of gravity and weight distribution are all exactly where pros and TaylorMade staff players wanted them.

The 750 Tour Proto irons have a thin topline, narrow sole and CNC milled faces.

Players who likely would consider using irons such the 750 Tour Protos generally have a consistent, effective swing and are not looking for additional forgiveness, but TaylorMade added a 5-gram piece of tungsten to the sole of the 3-7 irons in this set. It subtly lowers the center of gravity without taking away an accomplished player’s shot-shaping ability.

The P770 irons will come standard in 3-PW for $1,200 with KBS FLT steel shafts and Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 grips and should reach stores March 31. The P750 Tour Proto irons will be available for $1,600 (3-PW) at retail on March 17 and will come with True Temper Dynamic Gold shafts and Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 grips.
