What is the difference between Titleist T200 and TaylorMade P790 irons?

There are three major differences between the Titleist T200 and TaylorMade P790 irons. The first is that the Titleist T200 has a shallower face which makes it more forgiving for shots hit off center, while the TaylorMade P790 has a deeper face to help players get more distance from their shots.

The second difference is that the TaylorMade P790 irons have an undercut cavity in them to make them lighter, while the Titleist T200 does not have this feature.

Finally, there is a noticeable difference in price with these two sets of clubs; you could buy three sets of Titleist T200s for what one set of TaylorMade P790’s would cost you!

The Titleist T200 and TaylorMade P790 range of irons are both best suited for low and mid handicappers as against high handicappers. In other words, they are a good choice for handicappers in the 3 to 12 level range. The T200 irons range comprise 3-iron to 9-iron, a pitching wedge and a gap wedge.
