TaylorMade's P760 irons are here – but how do they perform?October 15, 2018 Golf Equipment
New 'players' irons from TaylorMade designed to offer control in the short irons with forgiveness and distance in the longer irons. Equipment editor James Savage put them to the test
Our TaylorMade P760 irons review took place on the course at Moor Allerton in Leeds.
We also gathered some data using a SkyTrak launch monitor at Leeds Golf Centre.
TaylorMade P760 irons review: First impressions
The clue with TaylorMade is the letter at the start.
If there’s a ‘P’ then it forms part of TaylorMade’s ‘players’ range.
But the P760 is actually replacing two models – the P750 and the P770.
So what is the story with the P760 irons and why have they been introduced?
TaylorMade told me there was a bit of confusion over the P750 and P770 with people unsure of the differences between the two.
The number actually corresponds to the blade length so the P760 sits between the two.
But the most interesting thing about the P760 is the fact it is a progressive set which TaylorMade say takes away the need for split or combo sets.
TaylorMade P760 irons review: The technology
So what is a progressive irons set?
Well, the shorter P760 irons are more like compact, players, forged blades.
Then from the 7-3 iron the irons have a hollow construction and are injected with TaylorMade’s Speedfoam technology.
This gives the irons a bit more forgiveness and ball speed to help maintain the right gaps as you move up into the longer irons.
The Speedfoam technology also improves the sound and feel.
“With P760, we set out to design an iron for tour-level competition, combining all the elements that are most desirable to the better golfer,” said VP of product creation Brian Bazzel.
“P760’s progressive set shaping enables short irons to be compact and precise while the long irons take on a hollow construction, injected with our revolutionary Speedfoam.
“The result is a complete players set, designed to inspire confidence whether you’re attacking pins from short range or sticking greens from long range.”
