©TaylorMade Golf

The TaylorMade P790 irons retail for $1,299.99 and $219.99 respectively (MSRP) for the UDI. These irons boast a classic and minimalist design, and they pack tons of performance, including unprecedented distance, features that are must-have in any respectable players' iron. The P790 achieve these qualities via a combo between the company's revolutionary Speed Foam Technology and their forged construction, and they'll offer unparalleled workability, forgiveness and feel, together with remarkable distance, all in a refined shape better players love in their golf bags. What makes these irons unique is the Speed Foam Technology, inserted in the TaylorMade P790's club-head's hollow cavity, a clever engineering trick that works in 2 ways: first, it optimizes both feel and sound, and second, it generates more ball-speed. These irons also benefit from TaylorMade's patented ultra-thin Inverted Cone Technology face which incorporates another proprietary technology, the Speed Pocket. All these tech innovations reduce the thickness of the face, thus increasing flexibility , which results in improved ball speed all across the face.

Bottom line, the TaylorMade P790 irons are impressive, to say the least, offering awesome feel and great distance, and being extremely easy to hit and controllable . Now, talking about the P790 UDI, it makes for the latest addition to the P790 bunch, and it shares all the characteristics of the latter, i.e. the same forged carbon steel construction, just like the standard P790 irons, with Speed Foam technology and ultra thin/super strong carbon steel face and the Inverted Cone Technology. UDI stands for Ultimate Driving Iron and it makes for the first driving iron in TaylorMade's portfolio to use Speed Foam, in order to deliver outstanding accuracy and distance. The UDI also features the company's patented metal injection molded tungsten weighting system, for a more precise center of gravity location and improved moment of inertia and forgiveness. Who is it for, you may ask? Well, the P790 UDI is engineered to appeal to low single figure players, who boast above average swing-speeds, and who love hollow headed blade style irons.
