TaylorMade P760 Irons Review | GolfBox

Posted by GolfBox on 15th Oct 2018

Break out the bubbly and celebrate because TaylorMade have welcomed another bundle of joy to their P700 family with the release of TaylorMade P760 irons.

The new  TaylorMade P760 irons replace the P750 and P770 models in the line-up, sitting between the muscleback P730 blades and more forgiving P790 hollow-cavity irons in TaylorMade’s famed players’ iron range.

TaylorMade P760 irons have been designed to meet the requirements of both elite Tour players and better golfers, with workability and shot shaping at the top of the must-have list.

But what makes TaylorMade P760 irons unique is the seamless transition between different construction methods through the set.

It’s a concept that makes their performance as a complete players' iron set hard to resist.

TAYLORMADE P760 LONG AND MID IRONS

The long and mid irons (3-7) in the TaylorMade P760 set are multi-material, hollow-cavity irons that borrow some of their technology from TaylorMade’s P790 irons.

A forged 1025 carbon steel body is joined to a lightweight SUS630 stainless steel face - that features TaylorMade’s sweet spot-enhancing inverted cone technology – while tungsten inserts optimise the centre of gravity in each iron.

The clubface is able to be made thinner and lighter thanks to TaylorMade’s patented SpeedFoam, a material that is injected into the internal cavity via the screw that is tucked away on the toe.

SpeedFoam isn’t just a space filler: it provides support for the face, improves feel, reduces vibration and helps to create a pure impact sound that befits an iron of the P760’s ilk – all clunks, thumps and tinny screeching sounds have been banished.

TaylorMade P760 long and mid irons have a classic mid-range cavity back design and aren’t nearly as chunky or wide as TaylorMade P790 irons but still offer a progressive level of forgiveness as the irons get longer.

Distance, speed and peak ball height are also enhanced to make it easier than ever to get those crucial long approach shots sticking to the green.

But importantly for Tour-ready irons like the P760, the added forgiveness in the long and mid irons won’t impact a player’s ability to shape shots and craft ball flights.

TAYLORMADE P760 SHORT IRONS

TaylorMade know that the short irons are where the rubber hits the road in a players’ iron set.

When top players go target hunting, they need reliable shot shaping and incredible feel to succeed and that is the logic behind TaylorMade’s detour midway through the P760 set.

Constructed entirely differently to the long irons, the P760 short irons (8-AW) are forged from a single, solid piece of steel that provides the sought-after feel and feedback that is so vital in the scoring irons.

No hollow body, no SpeedFoam in the short irons - just a soft, solid feel and pure and direct feedback that is destined to make TaylorMade P760 forged irons a top choice among elite ballstrikers.

The P760 short irons are so compact and clean, they can make any shot-shape or ball flight imagined a reality to give golfers supreme confidence when taking on even the tightest of pins.

P760 PROGRESSION

Merging two types of irons into one complete set might sound a bit awkward but there is a seamless transition from one iron to the next in the TaylorMade P760 set.

Progressive clubhead sizes and precise offsets and lofts make TaylorMade P760 irons look, feel and perform like a complete players’ iron set.

A new chamfered leading edge gives the irons a sharp and squarish appearance at address while an improved sole design improves turf interaction at impact for crisper and cleaner strikes.

True Temper Dynamic Gold 120 shafts and Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 grips are fitted standard on TaylorMade P760 irons.
