    With which iron, 7 i assume?

    I was about 6,200 or 6,400 (slightly weakened loft from standard) but like I say a monitor is one thing and course is another, I've had zero issues with "low spin" over the last 8/9 months I've had them.

    Good to hear you’ve had no issues with spin ! Do you find they launch high then and that’s what allows them to stop? Have you seen much distance increase?

    In terms of launch then I guess a standard shot is slightly higher but more down to how I swing in terms of hitting it higher or lower etc.

    Even if I hit a low shot into a green they still stop (again assuming I hit it well and not out of thick rough etc)

    Distance increase, perhaps a little in the longer irons (more that I can hit them higher and more consistently as a bit more forgiving than what I've used previously) but in the lower irons (7-PW) they aren't long really. I didn't want clubs that went crazy distances, more interested in consistency of distance.

    But, doesn't the P790 hit it about a club longer, due to stronger lofts and hot face, therefore for your normal 7 iron distance shouldn't you be comparing 8 iron spin?

    I've just picked up my 790's and am finding much the same thing. Maybe half a club longer than my 714 AP2's in the short irons and a full club in the 5/6. They launch higher but not worryingly so. I've put Project X 6.0's in mine to drop the launch a touch over the C Tapers.
    Can't really comment on the spin as the course is too damned hard ATM.

    Really lovely feel from them though. I tested them against the AP3's and the feel/sound was much preferable to me.

    if it's a club longer then i should be comparing it to a 6 iron and spin rate. hence 6000 and above being acceptable

    If for example you hit your current 7 iron 160 yards, then with the P790 you use an 8 iron to hit 160 yards, surely you should compare spin/descent angles for these two clubs for the distance hit?

    You're both saying exactly the same thing!!
