WRX Spotted: Titleist 620 CB, MB and T100 irons

Published

on

WRX got an in-hand look at a few of Charles Howell III and Justin Harding‘s new Titleist wares

As a reminder, catch up on everything we know (and speculate) about Titleist’s new iron offerings in Ryan Barath’s piece.

A few highlights…

  • Barath writes, “What is interesting about these new irons is the return to the 600 branding for Titleist, which was last used in the lineup for the 695 MB and CB irons, which go all the way back to 2006. The 600 name has always been associated with some of the best Titleist blades ever made including the 670, 680, and 690s.”
  • And regarding the T100s, he writes: “They have an obvious AP look to them but in what also appears to be a smaller package.”

Here’s a look at the 620 CB 9-iron.

And the 620 CB pitching wedge, which interestingly, features a loft stamping.

And here’s the T100 7-iron from multiple angles.

Here’s Justin Harding’s Titleist 620 MB 6-iron

    Meh… don’t care for cavity-backs at all, especially those with medallions and other pieces of (whatever) glued into the cavity. They just look tacky. The MB looks fine, as have all of its same-looking predecessors of the last few decades. It is nice but certainly not new and overwhelming. (We don’t need new and overwhelming every year – manufacturers just want you to think that you do.)

    Not a fan of the T100 as they are step down aesthetically from the 718 AP2. While the rebranding makes sense when trying to unite all the other non-MB/CB irons, moving away from the AP2 name (which Titleist made iconic) is not smart either.

    These irons look like they came out in 2002.

    Loft stamping?!?!?! Hogan golf was mocked endlessly for doing this because people didn’t have the brain power to figure out what club it was. Now that Titleist is doing, it will be revolutionary. Very similar to when Apple copies something Android had been doing for years.

      Never heard hogan being mocked? People knew their loft stamping instead of club numbering but Hogan changed it because people weren’t used to it and it confused them. They weren’t mocked. Secondly, Titleist is only doing it on the PW because there are different lofts available in that club. They aren’t loft stamping the entire set.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Best ball for players with slower swing speeds?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from ghoul31 who created a thread dedicated to finding the ideal golf ball for players with slower swing speeds. Our members have their say on what is the ball most suited to slower swing speeds, with a variety of models receiving 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.

  • Hogan9: “My SS is 80 to 85. I play the Titleist AVX. Many people on these forums tell it’s wrong for me. I’ve tried several brands and types over the last year ( Pro-V-1 and 1X, Cally Supersoft and Chrome Soft, TM TP5X, Wilson Duo Soft and the Snell MTB. The AVX gives me the best overall performance for my game. I’ve had to slightly adjust to how it reacts on chips and pitches, but the extra distance off the tee is well worth it. “
  • North Butte: “Maybe 90mph driver swing on a good day. Driver 205-ish hit 6-iron from 150. Pro V1x but I have played AVX, B330, TP5 with pretty much similar results to my favorite V1x. Also played the Chrome Soft for a while but it seemed to fly a little low and sometimes have trouble holding greens (or maybe I just didn’t give it a long enough chance to know for sure).”
  • Hat Trick: “Pro V1X – Spin and higher launch keeps it in the air longer, but at the same time that spin holds the greens – SS 96-98 mph.”
  • Kmac: “My SS is right around 95-100, and I find the QST to the perfect for my game. I will also play the AVX or Chrome Soft Truvis. But for the money, nothing beats the QST.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “Single length irons stunting development?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from rbark11 who has sparked an interesting debate over single length irons in our forums. Rbark11 has been playing single length irons for the past seven months, and he is concerned that he may have issues changing back to regular length irons. Our members give their take on the matter, as well as discussing single length irons in general.

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.

  • mcs4: “No, it will not. Both my father and I are currently playing Cobra One Length irons after decades of playing variable length irons. It took both of us maybe a few rounds to feel comfortable with the switch. This weekend I played a round with my old irons, and it was different but not a big deal. My opinion is that there are pros and cons with each approach, but I don’t think picking one will make any particular negative impact on your ability to later switch to the other.”
  • Quadra: “I’ve played both. Right now I am back to VL clubs ( Wishon 560 irons). Find VL gives me more shot-making options. With uneven lies, especially with the ball above or below foot level, the shot seems easier with a more upright or flatter lie, rather than trying to manipulate a shot from clubs with only a single length/lie. VL = more shot possibilities.”
  • Aucaveman: “I played Cobra ftbo for a year. Shot my best scores ever. Our club switched to Mizuno exclusively, so I had my first real fitting. I switched to the 919 forged and had to sell the Cobras to fund the mizunos. Really wished I hadn’t. I really liked the Cobras. The shafts in the Mizuno’s are better suited for me but had I put the same shafts in the Cobras; I’d prob been better off. At some point, I’ll prob do it and go back to one lengths. I was perusing eBay yesterday actually.”
  • Brandons68: “I think that the consistency you gain from SL irons is pretty great. I have not played them personally, but have talked to several people that have, and they really like the feel of the irons and the fact that they swing every iron the same because they are all the same length.”
