This is Golfer Geeks’ Taylormade P770 irons review.

I’m an avid golfer, 8ish handicap on my way to a 2 (been a 5.6), and frequent tester of golf clubs and equipment since 2015.

I had the Taylormade P 770 irons for the last couple of weeks. I’ve played a few rounds on my Awesome Golf App and Garmin R10, hit the range a few times, and got one full round and part of another with them.

Summary: A+ performance in a most attractive package. The Taylormade P-770s launch high and long, pack plenty of distance & forgiveness, but you can still play any shot you need if that’s part of your game. Taylormade does player irons well.

In this review of the Taylormade P770 irons, I discuss my experience with the clubs, unique features and benefits, as well as customer reviews and potential alternatives.

Taylormade P-770 Irons Overview

Here are a few of the improvements Taylormade has made in the 2023 P-770 irons.

  • Progressive launch & sping control (FLTD CG)
    • CG is lower in the long irons for improved launch and playability and moves progressively higher in the mid and short irons to optimize trajectory and spin for better scoring.
  • Forged hollowed-body
    • Better feel, distance, and forgiveness from ultra-thin face
  • Intelligent Sweet Spot
    • The P-770 face is the thinnest ever with a better-positioned sweet spot because the injected SpeedFoam Air is 69% less dense

Why Consider the P-770 Irons

They flat-out perform while looking the part too.

  • Compact, sleek clubhead with minimal offset.
  • Consistent and stable through impact with great feel.
  • The ability to play any shot you have in your bag.

My Experience with the Taylormade P-770 Irons

I hit the P770s a few times on the range and I played one and a half rounds with them.

My solid shots defaulted to my standard ball flight – high with a slight draw. I nailed my distances time after time – which is something I love to see in player irons. I’m after consistency so I can score.

The short and mid irons pretty much hit my normal distances, but I noticed a little extra – to the tune of a half club or more – with the long irons. I got a little help with launch too – which was much appreciated. The lofts are standard and not jacked, so I attribute improved distance to improved launch.

The long irons aren’t quite as easy to hit as the Mizuno JPX 923 forged irons, but they aren’t supposed to be.

Also, they’re flat-out gorgeous. I would happily put them in play tomorrow.

Review of the Taylormade P-770 Irons

Looks: (A+) Gorgeous compact clubheads with a nice combo of a satin finish with a splash of shininess near the toe. The topline and sole are slightly thick (but not thick) for player clubs. Look great at address for a nice confidence boost.

Sound/ Feel: (A) Good feel and great “click” sound with solid impact.

Distance: (A) I noticed about a half-club or so distance bump with the mid and long irons. Short irons went the distances I’m used to with my clubs. But, you can step on them and get more or take distance off. Great combo for player clubs.

Forgiveness: (A) Ample forgiveness, but not to a game-improvement extent. What I expected.

Flight / Playability: (A) They can go straight and high or you can turn them and flight them if you have those shots.   

Value: (A) ~$185/club (as of today) – On par with better-player clubs from other manufacturers.

Customer Reviews

Average rating of 4.9 with 182 reviews. 100% (74 of 74) would recommend the P-770s.

Who are the P-770 irons for?

Better ball strikers at around a 10 handicap and any single-digit handicap with strong ball striking.

Low handicap: (Yes) Elite low handicaps may prefer thinner toplines and soles with less offset. The rest of us will like them just fine.
Mid handicap: (Maybe) I’d say a 10-handicap on down could likely play them. But, you need to be ok with compact clubheads and be a good ball striker.
High handicap: (No) You’re better off with the Stealth irons.

Our Verdict on the Taylormade P-770 Irons

Excellent player irons with a little game improvement tech built in – but well-hidden.

My #1 suggestion is to get your hands on them before you buy. Either at your local golf store or take advantage of Global Golf’s Utry trial program. I use it and recommend it.

FAQ

Who is the TaylorMade P770 aimed at?

Upper single-digit handicaps. They have player looks – compact clubhead, less offset, non-thich topline and sole. But, they have more forgiveness than pure player irons.

What is the recommended handicap for P770 irons?

I recommend a 10-handicap on down. These are compact clubheads and traditional lofts. Your eyes need to be comfortable with small clubheads and you won’t be getting help from jacked lofts.

Are P770 forgiving?

Yes, P770 irons are forgiving for the category they are in – “Player” irons.

Are P770 irons good for mid handicappers?

Maybe – You need to be a legit strong ball striker with higher swing speed and a 10 handicap or less.

Can high handicappers use P770 irons?

No, I don’t suggest high handicappers use/play the P770s. They are forgiving for player irons, but not enough for high handicappers.
