TaylorMade P790 copper irons review

The TaylorMade P790 irons are a fan favourite for golfers of all levels. Now, just like the BRNR Mini driver, the iconic clubs are available in a new copper finish complete the old-school TaylorMade logo.

But don’t worry tech fans, the new-look irons still feature the same AI-created internal design that has been individually applied to each iron. SpeedFoam Air, the forged 4140 high-speed face, the Thru-Slot Speed Pocket – it’s all here.

The Looks

The vintage finish? The 1980s TaylorMade logo? What’s not to love?

Couple those with the classic P790 shape and the clean look at address and these were always going to be a winner.

But don’t take our word for it – have a flick through the images below…

The Tech

As I said, it’s all here.

The P790 copper irons feature advanced thick-thin back wall construction, strategically redistributing mass to enhance performance. Each iron is uniquely designed using proprietary AI mass optimisation, meaning the position of every single gram is carefully thought about to achieve specific performance goals.

The FLTD CG technology positions the centre of gravity lower in the long irons and progressively shifts higher through to the wedges. Precise mass distribution enhances launch and playability in long irons while providing improved control for scoring clubs.

Combining the responsive face and new internal shaping yields a new P790 designed to have a larger sweet spot, a remarkable advance from the early generations of P790. This new sweet spot intelligently captures more shots while ensuring consistent ball speeds and accuracy.

The bunkered Verdict

In the looks department they tick all the boxes.

The sound and feel off the face is exactly what you’d expect from a P790, and it really does fizz when you middle it. Even mishits still feel fine and it really doesn’t affect distance too dramatically.

From a consistency perspective, these irons perform incredibly well, while the fast ball speeds really stood out. This is an iron that golfers of all abilities fall into as it’s forgiving, easy to hit, feels great and look amazing as well – especially in that copper finish.
