New additions to the TaylorMade P•700 Collection
All-new P•7MB, P•7MC and P•770 irons
The new P•770 iron is constructed from a forged hollow body with SpeedFoam™ injection and advanced tungsten weighting, this latest model is more akin to its powerhouse sibling the P•790.
TaylorMade's research told them that whilst the P•790 is played by golfers of all levels many better players sought a more compact head shape with a higher launch with long irons and additional spin. And so the P•770 was born.
"Designed to deliver P•790-like performance in a smaller package, the all-new P•770 leverages forged hollow body construction to pack as much distance and forgiveness as possible into a compact player’s shape." - Matt Bovee, Product Creation, Irons Category
A high-buff polish and Tour satin finish deliver a unified look across this segment of the P Series.
The P•770 relies on a series of proven technologies to generate explosive power and distance. Firstly, the forged hollow body is constructed of 8620 soft carbon steel with a thin 4140 steel face to promote fast ball speeds.
Also within the face is Progressive Inverted Cone Technology, which is now uniquely positioned in each P•770 iron to both increase the sweet spot and minimise the effects of mis-hits. ICT is positioned in the centre of the face on mid irons and more towards the toe on long irons to deliver performance exactly where golfers need it the most.
SpeedFoam™ debuted in the original P•790 irons and continues to play a pivotal role in the performance of P•770. The ultra-light urethane foam injected inside the head is engineered to push the design limits of face speed while simultaneously improving feel.
However, because P•770 is a smaller head shape it naturally offers less forgiveness than P•790. To offset this, engineers boosted MOI by strategically positioning tungsten weights within each head. Present in the 3-7 irons and weighing up to 46 grams, the tungsten inserts are positioned towards the toe for precise CG placement and increased forgiveness.
P•770 - Specifications, Pricing & Availability
Available for preorder on August 14 and at retail beginning 4 September. P•770 irons (1,299 GBP, 1,399 EUR for a 7 iron set) will be offered in 3-PW/AW and come equipped with KBS Tour steel shafts (X 130g, S 120g) as well as the Golf Pride Z-Grip in grey/black. Available in RH and LH.
P•7MC & P•7MB
Designed with the game’s best ball strikers in mind, both P•7MC and P•7MB have been meticulously crafted to the highest quality to create the best feeling iron possible. As a contemporary take on classic designs, each iron set is built to blend aesthetics, performance and a purist feel.
With the new Compact Grain Forging™ process, the company relies on a 2,000-ton forging press to ensure that each P•7MC and P•7MB iron is formed with masterful precision and a tighter grain structure designed to provide the most solid, consistent feel possible.
The process uses up to 2-3 times the forging pressure commonly found in the golf industry. This additional force refines the microstructure, decreasing the grain size to improve the overall properties of the metal. The high-pressure forging also produces a head that is near final in shape, requiring minimal hand polishing for a repeatable, precise geometry.
P•7MB for the purist
The Tour-inspired shaping of the P•7MB takes cues from Dustin Johnson’s Tour Prototype irons. They boast a thin topline, minimal offset (even less offset than the prior P•730 iron) and a narrow sole. Forged from 1025 carbon steel with a machine-milled face comprised of the most aggressive score lines in our arsenal, P•7MB represents the ultimate in shot-making and control.
"The all new P•7MB was designed for the best ball strikers in the world who demand surgical like control and a pure feel at impact. Contemporary aesthetics with a thin topline and slim sole create a minimalist profile that appeals to the ultimate purist." - Matt Bovee, Product Creation, Irons Category
The geometrical positioning of the backbar also delivers precise CG placement and mass properties for optimal performance at the game’s highest level.
P•7MB – Specifications, Pricing & Availability
Available for preorder on August 14 and at retail beginning September 4, P•7MB irons (1,299 GBP, 1,399 EUR for a 7 iron set) will be offered in 3-PW and come equipped with KBS Tour steel shafts (X 130g, S 120g) as well as the Golf Pride Z-Grip in grey/black. Available in RH and LH.
P•7MC – A Classic
Inspired by Tour, the design features of the P•7MC meets the standards of the game’s most discerning players. Classic shaping and minimal offset deliver control and precision, while perimeter weighting offers just the right touch of forgiveness.
The shape of this new muscle cavity was derived from the previous generation of P•750 irons – which has a cultish following on Tour as a favourite of Jon Rahm, Collin Morikawa and Matthew Wolff alike. In creating the new backbar geometry designed to elevate feel, engineers moved mass up behind the face to support the point of impact. During initial testing, Rory McIlroy immediately commented on the solid feel of the iron and the stability of the head through the strike zone – a discernable enhancement over the previous generation.
A forged pattern within the cavity back pays homage to a long history of TaylorMade iron designs including the RAC TP blades as well the original P•750 and P•770 models. A subtly placed “T-Bug” with a high-buff finish is formed during the forging process as a sophisticated nod to craftsmanship and aesthetics. Completed with a Tour satin finish and muscle cavity geometry, P•7MC will visually match either P•7MB or P•770 in a combo set.
