TaylorMade P770 Irons
P770 irons utilize an advanced forging process to create a pure and simple head shape that appeals to the better player’s eye. Combined with precision-milled faces and grooves, P770 provides golfers with soft-solid feel at impact and performance that is both workable and forgiving.
In P770, engineers worked to deliver a true Tour iron for highly skilled players while simultaneously providing playability improvements that create a great playing experience. P770 features a uniquely forged 1025 carbon steel face/hosel and precision-milled faces and grooves along with 70-gram tungsten back-bar weighting in the mid and long irons (3-7) and a one-piece forged cavity back construction in the short irons (8-AW) for added feel and control. The P770 iron has higher MOI for ball speed consistency, thus more forgiveness, and has a lower center of gravity, which creates a higher launch angle than its predecessors. The result is a high-performance iron with improved playability and great sound and feel.
Based on input from Tour, P770 was designed with carefully considered contours, including progressive offset, a thin topline, and a tight leading edge to promote an appealing look at address and crisp, clean contact. Further enhanced by a flatter, medium cambered sole, P770 also offers improved turf interaction after impact.

Forged of 1025 carbon steel, the TaylorMade P770 irons are a sleek looking players iron with a sneaky amount of technology packed into a compact clubhead. The long irons have a 70-gram tungsten bar and the scoring irons are a one-piece forged cavity back construction for greater MOI, lower center of gravity and higher launch angle. TaylorMade packed in a lot of other great features preferred by better players too, like a thin topline, a precision-milled face and grooves, and tight leading edge, all resulting in improved playability, sound and feel.
Who's It For?
The TaylorMade P770 irons are for better players looking for forged feel with a mesh of workability and forgiveness. Plus to 12 handicaps.
I really like these irons. Right away, the styling had a rich feel to it and utilized both satin and chrome nicely. The top line frames the smaller blade length well leading to a confident feel at address. Once in my hands the P770 irons continued to impress. The weighting of this clubhead is really solid and I could feel a low CG even before hitting a ball.
The ball flight suited my eye perfectly, and my natural swing produced a very controllable draw. I enjoyed the forged feel which provided excellent feedback to my hands and a pleasant sound. That strategic tungsten weighting led to fairly good forgiveness for a players iron on shots off of the toe. Trajectory, distance, feel and looks are all spot on with these irons. Do yourself a favor and add them to your list to test.
