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.

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.
