I remember when the first UDI went to the public market, I had the 2 iron and would nuke the ball every single time.
I am in question about the P790 because I feel that this line should have been geared for the better golfer in mind. The speed slot coming back has me in question about what is the exact goal with this particular model. I know it's players "distance" iron.
P730, P750, and P770 have the better players pretty much covered in terms of playability and forgiveness. In my opinion, P790 would be good for 2 types of single digit golfers. The first would be a very good player who wants more distance without sacrificing too much look and feel. The second would be a scratch golfer who doesn't play a ton or practice much.
I know a lot of the guys in the office who are very good players will be playing P790 for that latter reason.
I'm pretty long myself but still might put 790s in play because they're just so easy to hit and I don't notice much of a different in terms of size, offset, and topline compared to my current 770s. I know on paper it's a bigger iron with more technology, but the boys did a great job of disguising it.
Looks like with these having a little stronger loft I can go with a 3 iron at 19 degrees instead of the normal 2 iron and add another wedge to the bag. For people looking for a 2 iron I think the 3 iron bent 1 degree strong can replace people's current UDI's. Will these be available to pre-order on September 1st with release date September 15th?
Pre-order on the first and shipping on the 15th is the deal. You can order a 3 iron bent 1° strong on our custom shop at that time as well.
