TaylorMade introduce P790 UDI forged driving iron

Published:

TaylorMade have extending their P790 iron range with the addition of a P790 UDI forged driving iron.

The new TaylorMade P790 UDI is a forged driving iron which combines forged construction with SpeedFoam™ Technology for extraordinary distance and accuracy, and has already been played by Dustin Johnson, Jon Rahm, Justin Rose, Rory McIlroy and Jason Day this season. 

Similar to the other irons in the set, the P790 UDI is constructed with a soft, 8620 carbon steel body combined with high-strength forged 4140 carbon steel with a wrapped-face construction in a hollow body design.

The P790 UDI's hollow construction is filled with TaylorMade's proprietary SpeedFoam material, which serves a dual purpose of generating ball speed as well as the management of sound and feel. Injected into the clubhead, the low-density SpeedFoam provides the face support and damping properties that make the performance of the P790 unlike any other iron in the TaylorMade family.

The P790 UDI also features a re-engineered Inverted Cone Technology optimised for the slightly smaller face area. TaylorMade's previous ICT had a larger, heavier profile. The new, smaller Inverted Cone in the P790 UDI allows for reduced face thickness at the edges of the face, thus increasing flexibility from heel to toe and low on the clubface, resulting in more ball speed across the entire face. For forgiveness and playability, P790 irons feature strategically placed internal metal-injection-molded (MIM) tungsten weighting for precise CG placement and higher moment of inertia (MOI).

The P790 UDI will be available in April with an RRP of £199 and will be offered in RH only as a 2-iron (17°). It comes comes equipped with Project X's popular HZRDUS Black shaft (85g) designed for low launch/low spin and gripped with a Golf Pride TV 360.

Additionally, the P790 will be available for custom build with an extensive offering of steel and graphite (.355) options.
