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.

GolfWRX Spotlight: TaylorMade SIM Max Rescue review

Published

on

TaylorMade on the tech features of the TaylorMade SIM Max Rescue

  • V Steel Sole design

    The v-shaped sole allows for clean turf interaction and provides additional versatility when playing from tight or difficult lies

  • Twist Face

    Uses corrective face angles designed to overcome inherent golfer tendencies on mis-hits and to produce straighter shots

  • Thru-Slot Speed Pocket

    Our breakthrough Thru-Slot Speed Pocket technology delivers enhanced sole flexibility to create additional ball speed as well as improved forgiveness on low-face mis-hits

  • C300 Ultra-Strong Steel Face

    High-strength C300 steel allows for a stronger, faster face engineered for explosive speed performance *Only SIM Max Fairway and Rescue

How it looks: TaylorMade SIM Max Rescue

I’ll be honest here: I hate hybrids. They look goofy and I hit em high and left 101 percent of the time. However, every once in a while I’ll find one that I can warm up to. It’s happened twice in the last five years: PXG Gen 2 and SIM Max. I’m not sure what it is exactly, but this hybrid looks like it’s gonna get into the turf and I’m actually gonna hit a good shot. The color scheme is clean and simple. The lines are sleek and not boxy, which is always a bonus. Sometimes hybrids look like a brick on a stick to me. This one does not.

How it feels: TaylorMade SIM Max hybrid

This is where I got really intrigued: the feel. It’s solid. Really solid. Now, I must say that TM didn’t reinvent the wheel with this thing, but the SIM Max is just a simple solid hybrid that is easy to hit and gets through the turf. The V Steel helps that I reckon. It has a nice heavy hit which is good since this is supposed to transition from woods to irons.

Overall: TaylorMade SIM Max Rescue

It’s a winner. Not hybrid of the century or anything, but a club that could stay in the bag for a while and produce solid results. Look, we have 14 slots to play and they all have a job to do. You cannot go wrong by giving this one a slot in the starting lineup!

What GolfWRXers have spent more money on – Drivers vs Putters

Published

on

In our forums, WRXer ‘2down’ has got our members talking about their purchase history and whether drivers or putters have taken more of their money. For ‘2down’ the answer is putters, who has a respectable seven flat-sticks sitting around his home, and our members divulge their history with drivers slightly edging it so far.

  • getitdaily: “Putters, but I change drivers more frequently…how does that make sense? When I change putters I will go through 7-10 of them until I find my bride. Then I stick with my bride for a while. I’ve had 2 brides…an old scotty newport beach studio stainless. Took about 10 putters to find it and then played it for like 12 years. Current bride is a spider tour plumbers neck. It’s been in the bag for 1.5 years now. Took about 8 putters to get to it, including a somewhat long term relationship with a 2ball fang. Since 1996 I think I’ve had 10 drivers total. 4 in the last 4 years.”
  • platgof: “I would say 24 drivers and 12 putters thereabouts. Took a long time to find what I wanted. I am still looking all the time though, it’s a disease, totally incurable. Now it is the wedges, and the SM7’s have my eye for now!”
  • CDLgolf: “Thats a really good question. At the moment I have 4 putters and 2 drivers. Over the last 25 years I’d have to say I’ve bought more drivers.”
  • Ray Jackson: “Definitely drivers as have used the same putter for at least the last 5 years. In that time frame I’ve probably had 4 drivers.”
  • dekez: “Drivers for sure. I go 6 – 7 years before even thinking about a putter switch.”
