Taylormade P770 Vs Takomo 101T Irons Comparison
It’s a battle between technology and essential distance features in today’s comparison of the Takomo 101T and Taylormade P770 irons.
Taylormade P770 Irons Overview
“The Taylormade P770 irons may be about $700 more expensive than the Takomo 101T’s; but they are loaded with advanced features.”
The question is, does all that tech really help? The P770’s sport a forged hollow-body design. I could feel the difference right away. The P770’s felt smoother, softer and more explosive on impact.
They also feature the Inverted Cone Technology which shifts the sweet spot throughout the set.
For me, this made my play throughout the set more consistent. I could take my natural swing with the long and short irons and yield expected results.
One last advantage that the P770’s have over the Takomo 101T’s is progressive CG.
The CG shifts upwards in the short irons which gave me better control over flops, chips and bump and runs.
Takomo 101T Irons Overview
“The Takomo 101T’s have a similar loft profile as the P770’s but delivered less short-game control.”
These are cast hollow-body irons constructed of 431 stainless steel. They don’t feel bad; just not as smooth as the P770’s.
The blades of the Takomo 101T’s are also longer than the P770’s and the 101T’s have more offset.
In general, the Takomo 101T’s are more forgiving; but they don’t give you the dynamic performance throughout the set or the shot-shaping that the P770 irons offer.
“In this case, I think tech does win the day. The Taylormade P770 irons allowed me to hit straight burners down the fairway and land skittering chips near the pin thanks to the progressive features and forged design.
The Takomo 101T’s offer more inherent forgiveness but are limited by their relatively basic design.”
