TaylorMade P730 Irons: Beauty and Brawn

taylormade p730 irons

A good-looking, well-designed iron draws your attention to it. It begs to be picked up, set down at address and elicits dreams of the shots you could (or couldn’t) hit with them. Golfers, amateur and pro alike, fall victim to this allure. This is the case with the new TaylorMade P730 irons.

The P730 irons are a true muscle back blade, for elite players looking for the ultimate in performance, feel, and control. Explore these irons with me and discover what’s behind the P730’s beauty.

P730 Features

If you pay attention to what the pros have in their bag, the P730 irons will look familiar. Rory McIlroy bagged the prototype of them, the “RORS PROTO” irons, when he signed with TaylorMade. Justin Rose joined the party with his “ROSE PROTO” irons and it’s been rumored that DJ is trying them out. What drew these players to the P730 irons?

Everything about these irons screams “traditional blade,” starting with the tour-inspired shaping. The smaller blade profile, refined leading edge, and crisp, clean lines draw their design inspiration from the classic ’11 and ’14 Tour Preferred MB irons.

Minimal offsets on the irons allow for maximum shotmaking and control. The milled channel on the back of the club is there for more than just its looks. The channel provides slightly more forgiveness on shots hit high or low on the clubface.

P730 irons hero

The P730 iron’s forged, 1025 carbon steel head gives them a soft, pure feel on well-struck shots. A precision milled face and grooves give the ultimate in shot-shaping and spin control. Precision milling also ensures manufacturing consistency in each iron. Users know each club is made exactly how it was designed, giving confidence in performance.

Finally, traditional lofts and lengths (6 iron loft: 31 degrees, length: 37.25″) provide consistency and distance control over added distance. The player these clubs are made for aren’t chasing distance. They want to know exactly how far each club goes and expect that to hold true every time.

Are P730 Irons For You?

The TaylorMade P730 irons are a shotmaker’s dream. Improvements on previous muscle back irons help you hit better shots from all types of lies. Elite ball strikers will come for the P730 iron’s looks and stay for their performance. Is that you?
