I need to improve my game just so I can some of these P700 series clubs in the future 😃

The 790s are so versatile, players between +hdcp up to 25 are gaming them they said! I thought something similar when selected for the JPX 900 Tour testing. I was a 12 at the time, but they fit me well and I would eventually break 80 for the first time while gaming the same irons Brooks was winning majors with. There's probably an infinitely-larger gap between my game and BK's, than the two of us. No iron is going to save you from a bad swing, but a well-fit iron will perform better for you on a majority of your swings. I honestly don't think that from 8i down you would even see much in terms of performance gains. Speed slots disappear, offset drops off, _____ (insert whatever else tech you see in 4-7 typically) just doesn't seem to be prevalent in most SGI/GI sets once loft takes over.

My only hesitation with the 790 would be fliers. I like my irons to go a certain distance, strike permitting. Slight mishits dropping 10y is totally fine with me, but random nuke balls are not.

I am super interested in these wedges! Also the 770s compares to the 790s I love mine but not sure I would want a much smaller club head but nonetheless I am interested.

I should have never got you on this site. [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23]

Well now I know I can use a scapegoat when the misses comes knocking why there is another package on the doorstep.....

one positive thiugg is I don’t think my golf knowledge has ever been this high and I’m looking at things very differently on course. Thanks all on MGS.

Thanks for the encouragement. I told myself no new irons until I get my fitting at TXG. That fitting won't happen for a while, not until after things calm down significantly with Covid to the point where my wife feels safe traveling again (that's going to be a long time). Let's see if I can hold myself to not buying new irons until then lol.

Personally, I don't think it's a direct copy, but I don't think it's outlandish to say that they might've had some inspiration. I think it's just a change in the market, and Mizuno might've marketed heavy emphasis on combo sets before other OEMs starting with the 919 line. I'm as big of a Mizuno fanboy as anyone, but this is just a shift towards current trends as people start to understand that a bladed 3-5i might not be good for them if the tour pros are using combo sets and hybrids. I think they're just nervous that for once, someone other than Mizuno has come out with such a beautiful line top to bottom. This P7 line is no joke!

edit: also, hipsters who care about being "first" to something

That's the thing though, plenty of other OEMs have made it easy to blend sets and companies like Nike, when they made hard goods, and Cobra have offered CB/MB combo sets for ages. I just don't see how anyone can look at the new P700 range and so easily call it a copy of Mizuno and their MP line-up. The other area some folks seem to think inspiration came from is in the naming, which I also think is a huge stretch. OEMs have been referring to blades as MBs, or musclebacks, for ages and the MC in the P7MC stands for Muscle Cavity, which other companies have used, but the MC in MP 20 MMC doesn't stand for Muscle Cavity, its Multi Material Concept.

TM have definitely in the past drawn inspiration from other companies with some of their clubs, but saying the new P700 range is inspired by the Mizuno MP 20 range doesn't hold up, imo at least. I think you may be right though that perhaps its some insecurity over how quality this P700 line-up looks.

Binged the latest season of Shameless over the past two days. It was a decent distraction from thinking about the new 770s. Now I'm right back on the hype train for them, lol

I think happiness can only be found in buying all three sets.. Sadly, I dont have that kind of coin.

Me neither but I have soft hands and not afraid to do some weird stuff for extra cash 😉

Their combo set chart is pretty nice, I like that they provide you with the loft adjustments so you don't need to think as much

Just think of the three sets as costing the same as one PXG set (at the prior PXG prices before the recent discounts). 😁

Yep, just helping to try to justify why its okay to buy 3 Taylormade sets, because it costs about the same as 1 PXG set.

If the performance was there for me (which I'm sure it would be) these could make me defect from my Mizuno fanboism. Those 770s look beautiful, and the MBs... whew!

You are dead to me...😄🤣😅

But seriously, I'd have to hit them to see how they stack up to the MP-20/HMB's I have in the bag.

haha. I get it. I could never justify three sets of clubs. Just not in my DNA. I can only play one. I am not much of a club hoarder either. I dumb stuff I am not using.
