Titleist T150 Vs Taylormade P790 Irons Comparison Overview

Titleist T150 Vs Taylormade P790 Irons

If you’re more prone to associate forged players irons with Titleist than Taylormade, I don’t think anyone would blame you.

The fact is that Titleist has a lot of practice making tour-proven irons for better players.

But you shouldn’t discount Taylormade altogether if you’re in the market for forged players irons.

In the following comparison, we will be examining the Taylormade P790 irons and seeing how they hold up to the Titleist T150’s.

Titleist T150 Irons Overview

“The Titleist T150’s feature dual tungsten weighting in the heel and toe and forged construction.”

As you would expect from forged Titleist irons, the T150’s have a soft, satisfying feel. Pure strikes are rewarded with a soft “thwack” and mis-hits don’t send jolts up your forearms.

The Titleist T150’s have a compact look at address. The top lines and soles are thin; but the blade length is longer than your average players irons. So you get a bit more forgiveness than average.

According to Titleist, the T150’s were built to be the “faster tour iron” and I can definitely feel some of that speed through the turf.

The rounded leading edge softens up heavy swings and the softened trailing edge improves feel through the turf.

In fact, the turf interaction was much smoother with the T150’s than it was with the P790’s.

Taylormade P790 Irons Overview

“The P790s have individual internal geometry.”

Every club in the set has a unique internal geometry to enhance distance and forgiveness. The CG is progressive and gets higher as you move to the short irons. The P790 irons are also forged.

The P790 irons have a bit more offset than the Titleist T150 irons but the lofts are nearly identical.

However, I was getting better distance with the P790 irons. The meticulous weight placement in each iron emphasizes distance and it really made a difference during testing.

While not as consistent as the Titleist T150’s I was surprised that the Taylormade P790 irons were almost as workable. They have a moderate head size similar to the Titleist T150 irons.

“Titleist is still the king when it comes to workability and consistency. I found it easy to flight the ball up or down and impart spin to manipulate shot shape with the Titleist T150’s.

The Taylormade P790 irons were a bit more forgiving but significantly longer than the Titleist T150’s.

Titleist T150 – First Impressions

The first thing we noticed about the T150 was the classy, refined look that we are used to in Titleist irons.

The blades have a compact blade length and minimal offset but the wider soles offer more confidence at address.

The refined muscle channel is also immediately noticeable, adding to the power and distance of the irons.

You may not notice the CNC Precision milled grooves or the Tungsten weighting in the toe and the heel but you will definitely notice and get to know them as your strike your irons.

Overall, you are going to get the tour refined shaping with an extra bit of power and forgiveness, perfect for those perhaps trying out forged players irons for the first time.

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.

Who Are The T150 Irons For

The T150 are for low handicappers who want more distance and forgiveness than what is on offer with the T100’s.

Similar in blade length but with thicker soles and enhanced tungsten weighting offers tour like performance with more distance for slower swing speeds and more forgiveness for the top players who lack consistency.

The one thing that may put golfers off is the higher price point of the irons in today’s game.
