Blended iron sets comprising numerous models have become more and more common, both with the world's best players and average golfers. To cater to these players, TaylorMade is set to release its new P760 irons, the latest addition to the company's P700 series.
Utilising technologies and features of the P790, P770 and P750, the new model combines compact, single piece forged short irons (8-iron to pitching wedge and AW), with forged body, hollow construction mid- to long-irons (3-iron to 7-iron) featuring TaylorMade’s ‘SpeedFoam’.
Set to replace the P770 and P750, the new model uses progressive shaping to deliver an appearance preferred by better players in the short irons, which are forged from 1025 carbon steel for outstanding feel. Similar in appearance to the P750 irons, the P760 short irons feature shorter blade lengths, longer hosels and less offset than the hollow-body long irons to improve ball flight control, in addition to refining looks. Further enhancing the visual appeal and performance of the new P760 is a refined sole featuring a squarer leading edge that is slightly cambered to improve turf interaction and better activate the sole’s bounce.
With a body made from the same 1025 carbon steel as the short irons and a face using ‘SUS630’ material, the P760 mid and long irons, which resemble the P770 at address, are designed for forgiveness and consistent distance to maintain gapping from club to club throughout the set, which can be a common problem when combining multiple models with varying lofts.
Similarly to the head size and offset, the amount of SpeedFoam incorporated in each iron progressively increases from 7-iron to 3-iron. The foam is injected into each iron as a liquid before expanding to fill the hollow cavity and provide both additional face support for increased ball speeds across the face as well as a soft, solid feel.
“With P760, we set out to design a player’s iron for Tour-level competition, combining all the elements that are most desirable to the better golfer,” TaylorMade’s Vice President of Product Creation Brian Bazzel said. “The P760’s progressive set shaping enables short irons to be compact and precise while the long irons take on a hollow construction, injected with our revolutionary SpeedFoam. P760 is designed to inspire confidence whether you’re attacking pins from short range or sticking greens from long range.”
Offered in an eight-piece set of 3-iron to pitching wedge (AW also available), P760 irons will be available around Australia from November 3 and come with True Temper Dynamic Gold 120 shafts and Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 grips as standard.
RRP: $279 per iron.
