After extensive testing and player feedback, we're proud to formally introduce P790 irons.
A breakthrough in iron technology, P790 is a beauty and a beast — the beauty of forged construction in a clean shape while also featuring an injection of revolutionary SpeedFoam Technology to make it a distance beast. It's the longest addition to the P·700 series of irons.
SpeedFoam is our latest proprietary technology that serves the dual purpose of generating ball speed while also dampening vibrations to create optimal sound and feel. SpeedFoam is literally injected into the club head in liquid form before it is quickly capped so it can expand within the club, providing increased face support and damping properties that maintain the forged sound and feel that all golfers want. In the past, that sound and feel came with a massive sacrifice in distance and forgiveness, but SpeedFoam allows for the best of both worlds.
Getting even more technical, P790 irons are constructed of a soft 8620 carbon steel body combined with a high-strength forged 4140 carbon steel wrapped-face. The wrapped-face construction creates a cut-thru Speed Pocket on the sole for extreme flexibility in the lower part of the clubface. This gives P790 a level of speed, forgiveness, and consistency not typically seen in a forged iron.
Another contributor to P790's consistency is an ultra-thin 1.75mm face with re-engineered Inverted Cone Technology (ICT). ICT was one of our biggest breakthroughs in driver technology which helped propel us to the #1 Driver in Golf. The revamped, smaller Inverted Cone found in P790 allows reduced face thickness at the edges of the clubface, creating more flexibility from heel to toe and low on the face—again, more flexibility for more consistent speed.
Lastly, P790 irons feature strategically placed internal metal-injection-molded (MIM) tungsten weighting for precise CG placement and higher moment of inertia (MOI). This helps with playability with more forgiveness on off-center hits and better-optimized launch and spin conditions throughout the entire iron set.
“With P790, we created a forged iron that meets the demands of discerning players and delivers distance performance never before seen in a players iron. By combining our new SpeedFoam Technology with a clean, classic design, we have effectively engineered an iron that is as beautiful as it is powerful — setting the new standard for all-around iron performance.”
