Un­hood­ing the best new prod­ucts on – or ap­proach­ing – the mar­ket, in­clud­ing Tay­lor Made’s new P770 irons.

The P770 irons have been en­gi­neered to de­liver a true Tour iron for highly-skilled play­ers while also of­fer­ing enough playa­bil­ity for low-hand­i­cap­pers. The com­pact head only has a small amount of off­set, a thin top line and shorter blade lengths.

De­spite the smaller head, the de­sign­ers were able to in­clude lots of per­for­mance-en­hanc­ing tech­nol­ogy. The 3 to 7-irons have a 70g back-bar weight, a shal­lower face pro­file and a shorter hosel to lower the cen­tre of grav­ity. The face thick­ness is also ta­pered so the up­per por­tion is thin­ner but thick­ened in the bot­tom near im­pact for a soft and solid sound and feel.

This two-piece con­struc­tion also freed up ad­di­tional weight that could be moved to the perime­ter of the head with an un­der­cut and the back-bar be­ing lighter in the cen­tre and heav­ier in the toe and heel.

The higher MOI and lower CG cre­ates more sta­bil­ity and for­give­ness, a higher launch and greater con­sis­tency than its pre­de­ces­sor. This means it main­tains the sound, feel and work­a­bil­ity that elite play­ers need while widen­ing its playa­bil­ity into lower hand­i­cap golfers. £1,049 for seven irons; tay­lor­made­golf.com
