The success of the original P790 coincided with a growing trend for premium irons that showcase “design without cost constraint” tech (Callaway, PXG and Titleist have all done it). It was a perfect storm for TayorMade, who fused the two themes in the brand new P790 Ti. It brings game-improving performance to the P series in a players’-style iron.

It’s completely different to any modern TaylorMade iron. For a start, the head is made from titanium. It’s not the brand’s first titanium iron (there was a Bubble Ti iron back in the 1990s), but it is golf’s first hollow-body titanium iron.

It creates an ultra-light body (titanium is 44% lighter than steel) which is combined with a low, deep and dense tungsten weight (up to 119g), which accounts for 50% of the entire head weight. That amount of weight low down in the head makes it much easier to launch it higher and have a long, penetrating ball flight.

ROBOT TESTED: Which golf ball suits my game?

According to TaylorMade, the construction pushes titanium as a material to the limit, and the head is quite a feat of engineering. The Ti heads have 0.5mm more offset (than new P790), the heads are 2mm longer and a fraction taller in the toe, and they’re primarily aimed at players who need a bit more forgiveness than P790 offers.  

The exotic construction comes at a price that will be a deal breaker for many, but anyone who can find the £2,699 for a set will own a slice of history as the P790 Ti is the most high-tech iron TaylorMade has ever made.

Verdict: TaylorMade P790 Ti iron

Thanks to the price, many won’t give the P790 Ti a second glance. But for those willing to spend, it’s an absolute delight. TaylorMade say they offer SGI iron performance in a players’ iron shape, which is only possible thanks to a lightweight titanium chassis.

For golfers who need forgiveness and don’t want to struggle launching a strong lofted iron from the turf, P790 Ti delivers in spades. Shots launch high, spin lots (thanks to the high launch, high-spin shafts) and keep plenty of peak height, which is just the sort of magic most strong loft haters can’t accept!
