Taylormade P790 Irons 2023 vs 2021 Review

The P790 irons have been Taylormades most popular ever clubs and in 2023 they have reached their 4th Generation.

The changes between the generations of these irons can be subtle and in this review, we are going to break them down alongside the differences in performance that we saw in testing.

What’s New In The 2023 Taylormade P790

Lofts And Specs

The lofts remain unchanged from the 2021 version to the 2023 version.


There are subtle differences in looks. The 2023 model is a little bit more rounded and softer around the edges.

The Bar along the back of the club has also been slightly changed and it runs straight along the back of the club now.

Inside The Club

Most of the changes have occurred inside the club head, let’s break them down.

Flighted Heads

The internal make up of each club is different, the tungsten sits in different places inside each club. This has been optimized by A.i

Lighter Speed Foam Air

Lighter speed foam air allows for more weight to be redistributed where it counts, which leads to speed gains.

Thin Thick Patterns

Each club now has thin thick patterns at the back of the club which can save 3gs per club. This allows for more tungsten in key areas,

Sound Stabilization Bar

A sound stabilization bar now runs through the club which looks to improve the sound and feel of the clubs on impact.


We found a good performance boost in the clubs in terms of speed. The ball speed was up and the carry distance was up by about 6 to 8 yards with the 7 iron.

Spin remained similar as did launch angle and we still have a good descent angle to get that stopping power when it counts.

Overall a nice upgrade and worth considering.

Category – Forged Irons

Taylormade P790 – First Impressions

The first thing to notice about the P790 irons is the compact, forged heads that come in a shape and style that will suit the better players.

Despite the players feel of the irons, they also come packed with technology that will add distance and forgiveness like the Thru Slot speed pocket, speed foam and inverted cone technology which allows more flex on impact.

The forged irons are actually a hollow construction, filled with speed foam which allows much greater distances to be achieved than the original P790’s and the tungsten weighting keeps the CG low for an easy launch for an iron of this type.

The original P790 irons, released in 2017, were definitely for the players but with the remodelling in 2019 and 2021, these can also be used for mid handicappers looking to test the waters of players irons.

All in all, definitely not for the high handicappers.
