TaylorMade P790 vs Titleist T300 Irons Review and Specs 2021

TaylorMade and Titleist are two heavyweights of the golf club market.

This is actually a really interesting head to head for me because I am a self-confessed Titleist obsessive, however, I play TaylorMade irons.

This article will compare the two brands most forgiving iron offerings, let’s go.

 

Who Are These Clubs For In General?

These aren’t cheap game improvement clubs.

Both of these models are for those who like to spend a bit of money on their golf gear and, in this case, are looking for a game-improvement/forgiving iron.

 

TaylorMade P790 Key Features

Made with a SpeedFoam™ insert in their hollow body, these irons go far.

Incredible weight distribution is achieved through tungsten inserts which make these irons forgiving, fast and beautiful.

These irons may very well be the best looking game improvement irons ever made.

 

Titleist T300 Key Features

With a more traditional cavity back design, these may suit the eye of some more.

These clubs give a lot more feel to the golfer than the P790s whilst still delivering distance and forgiveness in droves.

The core insert in these irons was designed in part with the R&D team behind the Pro V1.

 

Why Would You Choose The TaylorMade P790 Irons?

If you are in the market for distance like you’ve never seen before and forgiveness to help you apply those new yards, the TaylorMade irons are for you.

 

Why Would You Choose The Titleist T300 irons?

These clubs are for golfers who want more distance and forgiveness but don’t want to give up feel.

If feedback is important to you in your golf shots then the Titleist offering is more geared towards your style.

 

Loft Comparisons

One thing you will notice is that the loft on these irons is very strong, all lofts are in degrees. The Titleist T300 set does not come with a 3 iron.

The shaft on offer is the TrueTemper Dynamic Gold 105 VSS. In graphite there are two options, both UST Mamiya Recoil models.

Titleist T300

The Titleist T300 set is probably suited to slightly better golfers that the P790s.

They are more designed to give better feel and go slightly less distance than the TaylorMade set.

If you are a good golfer who just wants a bit more distance and forgiveness then these are perfect for you.

How Do They Compare On Composition?

In terms of the constituent parts that make up these clubs, they are incredibly similar.

However, it is clear that both clubs deploy their technology in different ways.

The TaylorMades have more insert material whilst the Titleist have more of a cavity back for forgiveness.

 

How Do They Compare On Performance And Feel?

Again they are very similar on this front.

The TaylorMade wins on performance when it comes to distance, they are very similar when it comes to forgiveness and the Titleist wins on the feel-front.

 

How Do They Compare On Price?

According to AmericanGolf.com, the TaylorMade P790 set from 4 iron to PW is $1,200.

On the same website the Titleist T300 set is $1,000 which gives you the same amount of irons but from 5 iron to gap wedge.

These prices are based on standard models with steel shafts.

 

Which Do We Recommend?

This is a really tricky one as these clubs are very similar in so many ways.

You should try them both and see which one you prefer most, however, given the huge price difference of $200, it is very hard to see past the Titleist T300 irons.

For considerably less cost you will get irons that provide you with incredible distance, impressive forgiveness and you won’t lose too much feel in order to get these benefits.

It is really hard to beat these clubs at this price.
