Taylormade P790 Vs Titleist T350 Irons Comparison Overview
Hollow body construction tends to add distance to golf clubs.
That’s because the face is generally unsupported by a hollow body design which allows it to flex more at impact.
So if you’re looking to get more distance out of your iron play, hollow body irons aren’t a bad choice.
Today we will be looking at a couple of quality, hollow body iron options: the Titleist T350’s and the Taylormade P790 irons.
Taylormade P790 Irons Overview
“One of the coolest things about the Taylormade P790 irons is that each club in the set has a unique internal geometry.”
Every club in the P790 set has been individually tuned to provide maximum distance and forgiveness.
The CG is also progressive in this set. And of course, the Taylormade P790 irons have a hollow body design.
I liked the feel of the forged 4140 steel. It’s not super-soft. I would describe it more as solid. The ball doesn’t melt into the face.
Instead, you can feel it spring off the face. The 7-iron in this set produced an average carry of 144.9 yards for me.
Definitely not bad but it’s pretty close to my average carry with my gamers. I was expecting a bit more.
But these irons launch pretty high so maybe that’s why I wasn’t seeing huge distance improvements. I tend to play longer with lower-launching irons.
Titleist T350 Irons Overview
“The Titleist T350 irons played longer than the P790’s; but the difference wasn’t massive.”
With the Titleist T350 7-iron, I averaged a carry distance of 149.6 yards.
And some of that distance gain might be attributed to the slightly stronger lofts of the Titleist T350’s.
In addition to the hollow body design, the Titleist T350 irons feature a forged face insert.
Overall, the Taylormade P790 irons had a better feel but the Titleist T350’s were more consistent. I was able to shape shots fairly well and hit straight shots when I needed to.
But more importantly, the distance and dispersion of the Titleist T350 irons were more predictable.
“I think if you’re looking for the better game improvement irons, the Titleist T350’s are the better choice.
They play a bit longer than the Taylormade P790 irons and are a bit more forgiving as well. The P790’s are still really good hollow body irons though. They would likely be better for mid handicappers.”
