Takomo 101T Vs Taylormade P790 Irons Comparison
Today we pit two hollow body iron sets against each other to see who they are for.
Read on to find out what you need to know about the Taylormade P790 and Takomo 101T irons.
Takomo 101T Irons Overview
“The Takomo 101T’s are cast from 431 stainless steel and feature a hollow body design.”
Compared to the P790’s, the Takomo 101T irons have less offset but the blade length is similar.
You don’t get a super-responsive feel because of the cast design of the Takomo 101T’s; but they play long with little effort.
I was getting an average of 140.3 yards with the 7-iron in this set and the launch was slightly higher than with the P790’s.
Taylormade P790 Irons Overview
“Right off the bat, the P790’s were more forgiving.”
I found that I could open up my stance more and get the same, accurate results with the P790’s.
As a result, I was getting slightly longer distances: 143.1 yards with the 7-iron to be exact.
The added distance correlated with the slightly stronger loft of the P790 irons. And the forged construction gave them a softer feel.
“Overall, I liked the Taylormade P790’s a bit more than the Takomo 101T’s. The P790’s had a better feel, were more congenial to my fast swing and were more forgiving.”
