Hot List Gold 2023

Our Review:

WHAT IT DOES: The P•790 has been a star of the players-distance category since its debut in 2017. In the ensuing years meaningful improvements have taken place. The use of a lighter foam that is 69 percent less dense saves 3.5 grams. That’s important because it’s softer and much easier to compress, allowing for a springy face and maintaining the feel of a players iron. In addition, a thinner-walled structure in the back of the iron’s hollow-body construction, previously 1.6 millimeters thick, is now just a millimeter thick. This redistributes enough mass to allow for a new 31-gram tungsten slug that is positioned a little lower and more toward the toe than in the past. That lines up the face’s most flexible area with the center of gravity for better energy transfer. 

WHY WE LIKE IT: Besides wanting more distance, golfers need to benefit from strikes that aren’t exactly center face. For many—even lower handicappers—that’s often in the area from low heel to high toe. The tungsten slug in this iron helps raise ball speed in those areas. That’s a pretty neat trick, which makes these irons so forgiving you might be able to skip hitting balls before the round.  Read more>>

Player Comments
"Very sleek looking with no distractions. A crisp, quick tone to it; very strong and the ball explodes off the face. Deceptively long, maybe 5 yards longer."
Handicap, 14
"Liked how efficient it was through impact. Great trajectory with plenty of spin coming into the green. Felt like you could be very precise with your direction. Even the longer irons could be scoring irons."
Handicap, 15
“These are easy to hit with a very smooth feel, yet you know there is horsepower there. The ball holds its line well, even on mis-hits.”
Handicap, 5
