In recent years it’s incredibly rare that you see a player on tour using the same iron model throughout the bag. Take a look in the top players’ bags and you will see a huge variation of blended sets.
For TaylorMade staffers, that’s meant creating blended sets comprised of the company’s P730, P750, P770 and P790 models.
Take Rory McIlroy for instance, he games a UDI, P750 and P730 mix while Justin Rose carries a P790 4-iron to go along with P730 irons.
Using the rise in blended sets as the impetus, TaylorMade’s design team went to work creating a progressive forged set that will soon replace both P770 and P750 in the current iron line-up and the result is the new P760 irons.
With P760, TaylorMade want to simplify things a bit and take some of the technology and design aspects from P790, P770 and P750 and create a complete iron set that they believe will be their No. 1 iron model on tour in 2019.
Forged Multi-Material Construction
The progressive design of P760 goes beyond shaping; specifically, the iron’s construction. The P760’s unique iron design transitions from a single piece 1025CS forged head in the 8-PW/AW to a 1025CS forged hollow body with SUS630 face material injected with our revolutionary SpeedFoam™ in the 3-7 irons. The hollow cavity construction (3-7 irons) produces consistent distance while adding forgiveness to maintain optimised gapping throughout the set, while the one-piece forged construction in the 8 through AW results in remarkable feel and shot shaping capability for better ball strikers.
Progressive Player-Preferred Shaping
Shaping is one of the most critical phases in the development of a new iron, and TaylorMade’s engineers set out to create a progressive set that met even the most discerning player’s demands. Head size, offset and lofts have been meticulously detailed to engineer specifically what better players demand for precision shot making.
The sole geometry of the P760 has also been redesigned with a chamfered leading edge that delivers a cleaner entry into the turf, activating the club’s bounce without the risk of digging, all within a square look at address.
SpeedFoam technology, which was first introduced in the highly popular P790 irons last autumn, has been incorporated into the P760’s 3-7 irons. SpeedFoam serves the dual purpose of generating ball speed while also dampening vibrations to create optimal sound and feel. SpeedFoam is injected into the club head in liquid form before expanding within the club, providing increased face support while maintaining the soft, solid sound and feel that golfers prefer.
P760 will be available on November 2nd 2018 from 3 – AW equipped with True Temper Dynamic Gold 120 (S300, X100) shafts and Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 grips, at an RRP of €1,399 for a 7-piece set.
