TaylorMade reveal new 2017 P770 and P750 Irons.
Tour players are a fickle bunch, and designing them a new set of irons can be a minefield.
If the look and feel isn’t to their exact liking there’s no chance they’ll entertain putting the club into play.
So TaylorMade’s engineers have worked closely with their tour stars on the 770’s and in particular Justin Rose.
Together they’ve straightened the topline, flattened the sole radius as well as tightening up the leading edge to give a medium sole camber and progressive offset running through the set.
The 770 name refers to the 77mm blade length, and even though the heads forged and made in two pieces TaylorMade have cleverly hidden away the tech so as not to distract the serious golfers eye.
TaylorMade reckon thanks to the design tweaks and the 70 – 90g of tungsten and steel that’s used to create the sole and cavity 78% of golfers who’ve tested them noticed an improvement in sound and feel.
TaylorMade are so confident they’ve hit the jackpot with the new P-Series irons they’re predicting tour players who swear by older sets of TaylorMade forged irons will replace them with these or the smaller P750’s in 2017.

Justin Rose shaping influence
TaylorMade say they’ve worked really closely with Justin Rose on shaping the 770’s. There’s a straighter top line, tighter leading edge, flatter sole radius, medium sole camber and progressive offset.
Milled face and grooves
When it comes to accuracy there’s no more precise way to create an iron face than CNC Milling. Throw in CNC Milled grooves to exact specs and you’ve got an iron capable of tour level performance.
Multi-Material 2-piece head
A soft 1025 carbon steel face and hosel ensures excellent feel. With 70 – 90g (depending on the iron) of tungsten and steel used to create the sole and cavity expect a serious golf club with a degree of forgiveness.
There’s also a P750 iron
There’s also a smaller compact P750 iron. It offers a muscleback sized head with cavity back performance and TaylorMade reckon tour players who use their older forged irons will change to these in 2017.
