Taylormade P790 Vs Titleist T400 Irons Comparison And Review
Two undisputed kings of producing top notch golf irons, with the two in question today suiting slightly different sets of players.
The P790’s are more workable irons aimed at mid handicappers but they also incorporate forgiving features for the high handicappers.
There is no hiding that the T400 irons from Titleist are super game improvement irons with their thick and chunky heads, aimed at beginners and high handicappers.
Taylormade P790 Overview
The P790 irons were originally released in 2017 and got a very welcome upgrade in 2019.
They are forged irons with compact and thin heads that will definitely suit the better players.
In the 2019 version, they have added more features to generate more forgiveness and distance.
For one, they have added speed foam to the hollow forged constructions which the irons a much softer feel.
The muscle back design and compact head will provide a ton of workability and the spin rates will be much higher than a game improvement iron like the T400.
The sweet spot is maximized by tungsten weighting in the toe ( a visible screw ) and in the heel to increase the MOI.
The inverted come technology and thru pocket speed slot ensure a low COG, high ball speeds and more accuracy even on off center hits.
These are perfect for a first set of more workable irons for a mid handicapper and will be also perfect for low handicappers who struggle with consistency in their irons.
Titleist T400 Irons Overview
The T400 are undeniably all about distance and forgiveness. You can see it in the thick head of the club immediately.
These irons produce lower spin rates and more consistently straight shots.
The split sole design allows for high launch shots and these clubs also cut the turf well for high launching shots.
There is up to 100g of tungsten in each iron to stretch the sweet spot all along the face as well as an L shaped forged face insert which has the result of forgiveness and incredible distance in Titleist’s longest ever irons.
The clubs get progressively more compact and workable as you get to the shorter irons meaning you can get some spin on the ball when you are hunting the greens.
Overall the T400’s are almost like Hybrids with their chunkiness and are extremely long, straight and forgiving for anyone who struggles with their irons.
The P790s are forged irons for mid to low handicapper but they also incorporate more forgiveness than traditional muscle backs making them a good first venture into more workable irons for improving players.
