TaylorMade P790 Black Irons Launched

TaylorMade has launched a new P790 iron finished for the first time in all black.

The new P790 Black comes in a gloss black PVD finish, providing a bold and premium look that is sure to stand out.

Alongside the new black finish on the iron head, the P790 Black also comes with a steel True Temper Dynamic Gold 105 VSS Black shaft to match the head.

The clubhead itself comes with all the same technology that has made the P790 one of TaylorMade's most popular and best selling irons.

The P790 iron provides a mixture distance and forgiveness thanks to TaylorMade's proprietary SpeedFoam technology and Thru Slot Speed Pocket.

The SpeedFoam - which has now been used in a number of recent TaylorMade launches - comprises of an ultralight urethane foam that is injected into the side of the head after it is made.

This technology has helped push the design limits of face speed while also helping promote a softer feel off the face.

The Thru Slot Speed pocket - which is present across the set - compliments the SpeedFoam by helping maximise ball speeds across the face and provide excellent forgiveness on low face shots.

The lofts are also the same as the standard P790 irons with the 7-iron at 30.5°.

Available in 3-AW, the P790 Black will be available at retailers from 23rd April 2021 with an RRP of £1399 for a set of 7.
