The Verdict: Typically, hollow-construction irons address speed, forgiveness or feel. In the P790, TaylorMade got greedy and addressed all three in a shape that appeals to better players. The result is an ultra-thin face with a polyurethane-foam filling. To enhance distance, the face insert wraps around the sole, leading into a cut-through slot similar to those on the company's fairway woods. The key, though, is the foam filling, a lightweight material that allows the thin face to flex without adding significant weight. The material helps maintain an acceptable sound, too.
