TaylorMade has rolled out four iron sets in their P Series, and they've all featured odd middle numbers. There are the P730 blades, followed by a pair of player's forged cavity backs in the P750s and slightly larger P770 irons, then the player's distance monsters that are the P790 irons.
Each of those irons have features which make them appealing to different kinds of better players, but they stand up on their own and don't much borrow from one another beyond name. Now, however, TaylorMade has plucked design features from each of the P750, P770 and P790 irons on the series and put them together in a set dubbed the P760 irons.
The P760s made their debut on social media last week when Jason Day spilled the beans on the irons in an Instagram live stream with Tomo Bystedt, the company's lead iron man. The P760 replaces the P750 and P770 irons in the TaylorMade lineup, removing some potential consumer confusion over the distinguishing features between the two. The P760 offers the performance of the smaller P750 heads in the short irons with the benefits of the P770 in the longer irons.
The P760 features several different designs built into a single set. From the 8-iron through to the pitching wedge and/or gap wedge, the P760s are forged from a single piece of 1025 carbon steel. In the 3- through 7-irons, the irons have a hollow-body construction, with a 1025 forged carbon steel hollow body with SUS630 face material and SpeedFoam from the P790 irons found behind the face. The SpeedFoam helps with ball speed and acoustics by dampening vibration at impact.
There's a progression of design throughout the set, in terms of head size, offset and lofts. The leading edge features a chamfered design for better initial turf interaction to utilize the club's bounce while maintaining a square look at address.
The TaylorMade P760 irons will be available Nov. 2 for $1,4000 in an eight-piece set (3-PW; with the AW separate) with True Temper Dynamic Gold 120 (S300, X100) shafts.
