Titleist CNCPT iron range, featuring the new CP-01 and CP-02 irons, coming to retail

Published

on

Titleist has introduced a brand new iron range CNCPT – which begins with the new CP-01 and CP-02 irons. The irons appeared on social media and in our forums last year, and we got a look at the clubs during the PGA Show, but until now, it was unclear whether the built-without-regard-to-cost clubs would come to retail.

The CP-01 iron is a players distance iron, which features high-density tungsten weighting, averaging more than 100g per head in the lower-lofted irons.

While the CP-02 Iron is a classic blade shape iron and averages more than 110g per head in the lower-lofted irons. The high-density tungsten weighting of both irons seeks to provide golfers with a higher launch, greater distance and the most generous impact possible.

Both sets of irons also contain a Super Metal L-Face Insert made with a super-strong alloy which aims to produce maximum ball speeds off the face of the clubs. According to the company, the alloy faces are the thinnest unsupported faces in golf, and they wrap under the sole, which maximizes the hitting area. Additionally, the face thinness allowed engineers to move discretionary weight throughout the clubs to maximize MOI, much like in a driver, as well as strategically position CG in each club.

Speaking on Titleist’s new CNCPT irons, Kelley Moser Jr., Brand Manager, CNCPT Clubs, stated

“CNCPT is an idea, a promise. It’s our answer to ‘What if?’ What if our R&D engineers could bring their dreams to reality, using materials and processes never before used in golf? We promise to provide them all the resources they need, so that CNCPT will always deliver the ‘wow.’ 

Those interested in purchasing the irons, which retail for $500 each, can contact Titleist’s CNCPT concierge to schedule a fitting.

    Is there literally any other facet of life where people continually line up to pay hundreds, thousands…..for literally no increase in performance. Pissing $$ away.

    Also, look up Honma Beres – over $1k per iron. No one is forced to buy them and they are not necessary in any way. Want to complain about pricing – complain about profiteering in prescription drugs. That actually kills people.

    The answer of course is simple: if you want companies to stop doing things like this, vote for socialism. Well-run socialism would end unnecessary products and prices.

    In the meantime, PXG has proven without any doubt that a market exists for golf clubs in this price range (even if they’re ugly). Why should Titleist ignore the possibility? Wouldn’t they be stupid not to? Wouldn’t their shareholders see missed opportunity? How would their top execs get huge salaries for doing nothing and new yachts every 2 years?

    There is an “ultra-premium” price range in almost everything. Clothing, wine, cars, houses, home audio and video systems ($50,000 in audiophile speaker wire, anyone?). This is a natural and obvious progression of capitalism. Apart from JDM clubs, it’s actually kind of funny this hasn’t hit golf long ago – consider what people pay for club memberships, their own golf carts, etc.

    The biggest laugh, though, would be to know the actual factory cost of these irons – I assume made in China. I’d bet the markup would be astounding. Meanwhile, Titleist make tons of clubs in the “normal” price range, and eBay overflows with enough used golf equipment to keep equipped the huddled masses yearning for a tee time.

      Vote for socialism? This is your answer? The biggest laugh (more like a sad shake of the head) is that you suggested such tripe in the first place!

    I can’t believe that Titleist would even think of letting the public see such an ugly club from their company.The terrible part is, its an attempt to match PXG prices.

    I don’t have a problem with the price, it’s a concept iron, not meant for general release

    No doubt bmw and Aston Martin concept cars are really expensive too

    One of those looks like nothing more than a tricked out Titleist T-MB iron.

    $500 per club………….I just threw up in my mouth a little. Golf for most equipment is already pretty steep. At those prices I will not worry about them until they show up on the used rack 5 years from now.

    New release date: 2040! I like the $50k asking price, but I wouldn’t pay over $42k for ’em!! On the floor crackin’ up! 🙂

    I am a Titleist diehard, but I’m not sure what these are about or what they can do better than the AP1, MBT, AP2, CB or MB ???

    Totally pointless

    Fools and their money are easily parted…

    Why stop at $500? Let’s call it $1,200 per club and offer financing. #MoreMoneyThanSense

WRX Spotted at U.S. Open: Justin playing just Rosey with new TPT

Published

on

We are a little more than halfway through the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, and so far the course is giving and taking as much as you would expect from a perfect setup by the USGA.

Taking the lead on Thursday and continuing to lurk into the weekend is Justin Rose. Since we have been paying close attention to his Honma golf bag all year, we noticed a shaft change in his Tour World driver.

We reached out to TPT to see if we could get an update on what Rose has put in play for what is often referred to as one of the toughest driving weeks of the year. Here’s the inside info

“Justin has put into play a TPT Golf 14 MKP-LT-SW shaft in his Honma driver. This shaft is a full 10 CPM ( Cycles per Minute ) stiffer than the 15 LKP-LT-SW shaft that he put in play at The Memorial after testing it that week. It’s also different in that it has a Mid Kick Point (MKP), where as the 15 LKP-LT-SW has a Low-Kick-Point (LKP) design.”

From a technical and fitting perspective (generally speaking) a lower kick point shaft will hit the ball higher with more spin compared to a mid or high kick point shaft if all other factors are equal. We don’t have access to his driver numbers but with the U.S. Open being played on what can always end up as a windy venue the theory would be that this change to the MKP is to help keep ball flight lower and more controlled — which will also be a benefit next month at the Open Championship.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Best budget driver?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Ivyguy who is on the lookout for the best driver to be had at an affordable price ($300 or less). Our members give their suggestions, with plenty of different drivers getting a mention.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • tbsbama: “Cobra King LTD is a wonderful driver. The pro model has lofts from 7 to 10 with fade settings. The regular from 9 to 12 with draw settings. Both heads are absolute bombers and can be found pretty cheap. Best driver I have hit in several years.”
  • zzyzxx33: “I won a Tour Edge EXS Driver, and it has been Awesome! Great Price, Look, Sound and Results! It’s longer than anything else I’ve hit.”
  • AG12: “I would say the regular PING G400…you can get new for $300 on PGA SS website, ’17 M2 is a good choice, and the M4 can be had at under $300 used in most shops.”
  • Badshaft: “I have the F8+ and bought the extra weights off of eBay (inexpensive, shipped from China)- 12g front 7g back- Blue Tensei 70g stiff. Longest for me – straight and as accurate as anything. Nice well-balanced combo. Looks to me it has the same moveable weight strategy as the F9.”
