What's in NCG's bag? The best golf equipment 2018July 6, 2018 Golf Equipment
Equipment editor James Savage gets all the best gear – so which are his favourites of what 2018 has to offer?
TaylorMade P790 UDI 2-iron
Like with the regular P790 irons this iron has a hollow construction and has been filled with something TaylorMade call ‘speedfoam’.
They say it improves the sound and feel without sacrificing any of the ball speed off the face.
TaylorMade say this iron will suit golfers “seeking the forged look and feel of a players iron with increased distance and accuracy off the tee or fairway”.
I’m looking for something that flies quite low with maximum run out that’s going to be reasonable forgiving. I don’t think players can expect a 2-iron to be THAT forgiving can they?
TaylorMade say they have been able to add a bit of extra face flex from heel to toe to improve the performance on off-centre strikes.
There’s also strategically placed internal metal-injection-molded (MIM) tungsten weighting for precise CG placement and higher MOI (resistance to twisting).
