    I wish ping would kick out a hollow-ish iron set and have hybrids like woods in the 2,3,&4(g25) then more iron
    -like in the 5&6(g20)…
    LS Tec 12* would be ok too

  • OSpreyCI: “PXG 0811x Driver. Thank you fam bam.”
  • Aviador Naval: “Two hours of time with my son hitting balls and practicing short game on a day with beautiful weather. As an empty nester, that is 1000x more valuable than anything material.”
  • Kingcat990: “Took the father in law golfing, and we posted some horrendous scores. Had a great time piling garbage on the scorecard.”
  • Gautama: “New golf shirt and shorts, and got a surprise treat in a tee time for the whole clan on a little executive 9 hole, par 33 course. First time we’ve done it…my wife, my two sons aged 22 and 18, and my two daughters aged 9 and 6. The whole course was crawling with groups like ours… Not the fastest round any of us have ever played, but very fun.”

Titleist T200, T300 iron seeding begins at Travelers Championship

Published

on

The last few weeks for Titleist have been very busy.

First, we had the new TS series of hybrids and aptly named U-Series utilities/long iron replacements, then shortly after the T100s and new 620 MB and CB irons debuted. Now, to potentially round out the iron lineup we are seeing the T200 and T300s.

We can only speculate at the moment, but based on the rebranding across the line up, from the TS Hybrids to returning to using “600” to identify iron models, I feel confident that this “T” series name will be the replacement for the AP line (RIP Titleist AP Series, you had a great run).

This simple name change makes a lot of sense for a number of reasons when you consider how other OEMs generally identify models: in sequence going from the most players club to the most forgiving. The AP had this with the AP1 and AP2, but with the introduction of the AP3, it was from all accounts (what I have heard through friends across retail channels in the industry) a confusing club for consumers to understand where it fits in the lineup, since the AP1 is still the most player friendly. We have to remember that not all golfers are as continuously up to date like the readers here at GolfWRX!

These types of rebranding decisions are never made in haste by OEMs since it can have lasting effects on naming down the line, but with this refresh, I think it will help consumers understand what model is right for them and make it easier for fitters to help explain too.

The above image is a perfect representation that shows a widening sole from the T100 – 300 along with an ever-increasing depth to the cavity.

We don’t have any tech specs for the new models yet but there are a few little nuggets we can speculate on from the provided images

  • Multi-material: This was a staple in the AP line since its introduction and with the ability to increase MOI without physically increasing the size of the club. It would appear the new T series will offer varying versions of this to create the best fit
  • Easy to blend: Similar appearances and close in looks (as a whole), these sets should be prime candidates for building combo sets
  • Cast?: First images of the 620s and T100 all had “Forged” on the hosels, but that is noticeably absent from the hosels of the T200 and T300s. With multi-material construction and different polymers and elastomers, a “great” feeling clubs doesn’t have to be forged (we’ve debunked that myth a LONG time ago). Plus, if face inserts are used to help create higher MOI and ball speed who cares how they do it? I know I don’t!

Heres the big one: Mi-Max Impact technology?!?! Yeah I don’t know what it means either, but considering every tiny detail of every club goes through so many design renderings before seeing the light of day, for Titleist to put this in writing on the back of the T200 (in what looking like the bottom of a bullet) means it’s going to be a big part of the story. We also see this Mi on the back of the T300 too, on what I can only assume is part of the vibration dampening system.

Titleist pushed the envelope, with the CNCPT series, in materials, construction, and cost, and like all things technology, the longer it’s available the less expensive it becomes to mass manufacture. Will part of what makes the series so good be making its way into the new T200 and T300 irons and more readily available? Not sure just yet. But when we do know we will be sure to let you know too.
