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.

That one time Tiger switched driver shafts and NOBODY noticed

Published

on

It seems like pretty much everyone on the planet has an idea of what clubs Tiger has in play at any given moment. Especially now in the age of social media. However, his bag was still analyzed and tracked immensely from the beginning of his arrival on the golf scene. Point is, when the guy switches anything out, the world will know.

But did you know that, during the 2002 and into the 2003 season, he switched driver shafts? It was a pretty substantial switch too, but it fell completely under the radar. As a Tiger junkie myself, I noticed it, but in those days 1) The internet wasn’t what it is today and 2) I was bartending in Newport Beach and didn’t have access to info like I do today. So, it went in my Tiger vault…until now.

Always known to have a True Temper Dynamic Gold X100 shaft in his driver, Tiger and the Nike team wanted something a bit lighter, all while maintaining the stiffness profile of his X100.

We now introduce you to the 118-gram DGSLX100 Tiger Proto (a stock Dynamic Gold X100 shaft is 130 grams).

A complete one-off made specifically for Tiger Woods. If you look at the pictures you will see an unfamiliar step pattern that starts off a bit wide towards the handle but gets progressively closer down towards the tip section. Basically, the step pattern (diameters) dropped lower to keep stiffness across the board.

“That’s the shaft we used to get him out of Titleist 975D and into Nike Blue 275cc driver in 2002.” – Anonymous Nike source

In theory, this was Tiger accepting the fact that he was going to have to get used to the feeling of a lighter shaft to begin the inevitable transition into graphite, which ultimately happened for good in 2004.

With the mystery of his bag completely gone these days with minute-to-minute reporting, I thought it kind of nice to still have a couple of nuggets to discover.

GolfWRX Spotlight: Precision Pro NX7 Pro Slope rangefinder

Published

on

If you are looking for a premium full-feature laser range finder at a price normally reserved for more entry-level units, the PrecissionPro NX7 Pro Slope is exactly what you are looking for. Clear optics, easy-to-use, pulse vibration targeting, and last but not least: Free batteries for life. You heard that right, for as long as you own the rangefinder, Precision Pro will make sure you never run out of juice on the course.

NX7 Pro Slope features

Generally, a product that fits into the affordable category has to compromise along the way to meet a certain price point. With the NX7 Pro Slope from Precision Pro, you don’t have to compromise to get everything you would want from a top-of-the-line rangefinder at a less-than-top-of-the-line price.

The NX7 has pulse vibration, which notifies the user the laser has locked onto the target. Having used a lot of other rangefinders in the past, I always thought of a “pulse” as being a bit of a redundant feature to someone with experience using a rangefinder. I was completely indifferent but was quickly proven wrong! To me, the pulse is just the extra reassurance to know that I am locked onto the flag instead of something behind. The NX7 Pro Slope does this with a priority target acquisition process to make sure you are getting the flag and not a tree behind the intended target.

As the name would lead you to believe, the NX7 Pro Slope comes with a slope feature that can be turned on and off for casual mapping of a course or competition—just be sure to check with any tournament committee for conformity during an event. It’s easy to see both the measured and calculated distances in the viewfinder without ever being cluttered.

The extras

Each rangefinder comes with a well-made protective case that allows you to store the unit either on the outside of your bag or tucked away for safekeeping during travel to and from the course. Although it seems like a small feature, details matter, and having the case latch with a mini elastic cord makes getting the rangefinder out just that much easier—no need to zip and unzip 40 times per round.

The rangefinder also comes with a cleaning cloth, pre-installed battery—and don’t forget those batteries for life. All you need to do is register your rangefinder and go through the form on the Precision Pro website.

For $289, it’s one of the best buys in the rangefinder market.

Bettinardi collaborates with Scottie Pippen to create limited-edition authentic jersey putter covers

Published

on

Bettinardi has collaborated with six-time NBA Champion and Chicago Bulls Legend, Scottie Pippen to create limited Home, Road, and Alternate authentic jersey headcovers ahead of this weekend’s NBA All-Star game.

Pippen is the only NBA player to have won an NBA title and Olympic gold medal in the same year twice (1992, 1996), and just 33 of the covers have been made by Bettinardi – which are constructed from the NBA star’s own authentic jersey collection making each cover unique.

The covers feature the seven-time NBA All-Star’s iconic number 33, his signature stitched across the underbelly and also the Hex B logo.

The covers will be available to purchase in the Hive at Noon CST on Saturday. Bettinardi will also have a special USA “Dream Team” 1992 cover (only 8 made) due to release at the same time.

Also look out for a special “All-Star”  giveaway which will be unveiled on Bettinardi’s Instagram page on Sunday.
