Will the new GAPR Lo be replacing the 2-iron currently in equipment editor James Savage's bag?
TaylorMade GAPR Lo vs. P790 UDI – The results
With the launch monitor numbers there was very little to split these two.
Both had similar ball speed, carry and total distance numbers.
There was a bit of difference with the height and spin.
The GAPR Lo actually spun a bit more and launched a bit lower on average.
But with the on course testing, I found there to be very little difference between them.
If I hit a good shot with both, I found the ball was pretty much in the exact same place on the fairway.
TaylorMade GAPR Lo vs. P790 UDI – NCG verdict
So am I tempted to put the GAPR Lo in my bag instead of the P790 UDI?
Not really because if anything the numbers were slightly better with the P790 and I just prefer the overall look sound and feel.
Could I put the GAPR Lo in my bag and be happy with it? Absolutely. But I’d need to see a significant performance gain for me to switch out the P790 UDI which has been one of my best-performing clubs this year.
GAPR Lo: £229 (KBS Hybrid shaft)
P790 UDI: £199 (Project X Hzrdus shaft)
