TaylorMade P770 Irons: Sibling Rivalry

The all-new P770 irons represent a new level of aesthetics and performance within the TaylorMade line-up.

The P770 was forged from the same DNA as the highly-rated P790. Extensive data revealed that while many better players covet the distance and forgiveness of P790, they also desire a more compact head shape while achieving higher launch with long irons and additional spin.

This sparked the development of P770, a generational iron that utilises advanced materials and innovative technologies to push the boundaries of distance, feel and performance in a compact players’ shape. The new iron is constructed from a forged hollow body with SpeedFoam injection and advanced tungsten weighting.

The P770 is one of three models added to TaylorMade’s acclaimed P700 Series irons, the other two being the muscle cavity P7MC and muscle back P7MB.

In comparison to its sibling, the P770 has a thinner topline, narrower sole and shorter blade length. The more compact construction helps inspire confidence at address, while promoting enhanced workability and control.

A high-buff polish and tour satin finish deliver a unified look across this segment of the P Series. With the clean aesthetics of P770, golfers can easily match them with P7MC or P790 to create a combo set that looks cohesive.

Given the compact head shape, P770 punches above its weight class with TaylorMade tests showing that it’s within a few yards of the larger P790.

A series of proven technologies combine to generate explosive power and distance. Firstly, the forged hollow body is constructed of 8620 soft carbon steel with a thin 4140 steel face to promote fast ball speeds. Within the face is Progressive Inverted Cone Technology, now uniquely positioned in each iron to increase the sweet spot and minimise the effects of common mis-hits.

SpeedFoam debuted in the original P790 irons and continues to play a pivotal role in the performance of P770. The ultra-light urethane foam injected inside the head is engineered to push the design limits of face speed while improving feel.

However, because P770 is a smaller head shape it naturally offers less forgiveness than P790. To offset this, engineers boosted MOI by strategically positioning tungsten weights within each head. Present in the 3-7 irons and weighing up to 46g, the tungsten inserts are positioned towards the toe for precise CG placement and increased forgiveness.
