2019 Titleist T-Series irons—T100, T200, and T300—hit retail

Published

on

The 2019 and 2020 Titleist T-Series irons: On August 30th, the Titleist T-Series T100 (AP2 replacement), T200 (AP3 replacement), and T300 (AP1 replacement) will hit retail stores, and what will be waiting for golfers is an iron line that will satisfy on multiple levels.

GolfWRX staff has had a chance to hit and study the Titleist T-Series since its initial launch and these are the early reactions.

LOOKS: Titleist T-100 irons

The 2019 Titleist T100 iron has a couple of key changes to the optics that we think are a huge improvement over the AP2.

  • Thinner topline
  • Reduced off-set

Both of these changes were based on the input from tour staffer Jordan Spieth. Here is what he had to say about the AP2 Replacement

“When I first saw the T-100 irons and it didn’t say ‘AP2’ on it, I had to have full trust,” Spieth said. “I’m sitting there saying, ‘Man, I played the same iron that said the same thing on it since 2010, probably earlier.’ But I’ve been playing Titleist clubs since I was 12 years old, and they’ve never led me in the wrong direction and they’ve always gotten better. And the idea of a name change – really an entire change across the board with their irons – is big. But there are big changes.”

FEEL: Titleist T100 Irons

The 2019-2020 Titleist T-100 iron is equipped with a new fully-forged dual cavity construction that provides more consistency across the face as well as increased ball speed for maximum distance. The face is thinner overall but a solid “forged blade” feel is not sacrificed.

66 grams of dual-density tungsten was placed in the heel and toe of the mid and long irons to increase stability and provide a heavier hit overall.

“The Titleist T100 irons shocked me a bit. It’s actually very forgiving on miss hits which for me is a thin, center strike. Typically with players irons that miss always has a dead feel to me, with The T100 not only did it feel fantastic but I still got the proper feedback, spin and carry….does that make sense?”-Johnny Wunder, Host of The Gear Dive

OVERALL: Titleist T 100 Irons

“The Titleist T100 iron is a winner form top to bottom. It looks amazing, its extremely playable and the new thinner topline and reduced offset may convert the traditional MB/CB players. I don’t think it’s any coincidence that a good number of tour players that have never put the AP2 in the bag are starting to mess around with these.”-Johnny Wunder, Host of The Gear Dive

On Spec’s Ryan Barath had a full testing with the T-200 irons and this is what he had to say

LOOKS: Titleist T-200 irons

The very first thing I noticed about the 2019 Titleist T200 iron is that although slightly more rounded and bigger than the smaller 100, thanks to the tweaking of the topline, sole and toe profile, the T200 to me looks more like an older AP2 than its predecessor in the lineup, AP3. The short irons of the T200s still frame the ball very nicely and allow for workability and the chance to flight shots.

FEEL

Max Impact sounds and looks very different from any Titleist iron before it, because it is. Thanks to new materials and manufacturing techniques, along with lessons learned through the development of the Concept Series and Speed Project, the 2019 Titleist T200 has an unsupported forged L-Face that not only feels fantastic but flexes for more ball speed.

That’s what I loved about these irons, they felt so close to the Titleist T100s as far as feel and sound go, that I instantly thought of building a combo set. The ball takes off high and comes down soft. The speed is the reason stronger lofts are required for the 2019 Titleist T200 LAUNCH. The lower COG paired with the faster face and higher ball speed means that without going stronger, players are going to spin it TOO much—not something you would generally expect from a club with “stronger” lofts. but what I really loved about them was how they felt through the turf. They don’t have the feel of a midsized iron…but they do have the speed!

I loved everything about the T200 and I think that if you are getting fit for new irons, these have to be on the list to try!

LOOKS

The 2019 and 2020 Titleist T300 irons is a game improvement, tech-packed, fun to hit distance iron. So if you are a traditionalist, then we get it, it’s not a forged blade. HOWEVER, The Titleist T300 is a well put together package that won’t offend anyone from an optics standpoint. The 2019 Titleist T 300 iron has a clean mid-size look with a nice top line, a longer blade length and progressive offset.

Long story short, if a better player snuck a 4 or 5-iron in a blended set, they would find a set that blended VERY nicely.

FEEL

They are by no means clicky or clunky and that again comes backs to how the dampening of the Max Impact behind the face. Just like the other irons in the T Series, through the turf, they perform like a much smaller club because of the redesigned and finely tuned camber and radius.

When I first saw the specs for the T300, I said what a lot of people did “WOW, these lofts are strong, they should go very far.” But as someone that knows clubs, I know that stated loft is not the full story, and at this point in golf technology, I’m completely done with hearing that as an excuse for players to NOT trying a club. In the case of T300, we’re still talking Max Impact. The T300’s don’t hide who they are—an undercut, fast, forgiving iron meant for speed.

The unsupported face is stretched across a larger area thanks to the bigger face size, wider sole, and undercut perimeter that pushes the CG lower and away from the face! The deep CG and thin fast face are what makes this club launch so high, which is another reason why I really liked it. You won’t confuse the feel of the 2019 Titleist T300 with the 2019 Titleist T100 because they are completely different animals. The 2019 Titleist T300 feel and sound FAST!

To me, the 2019 Titleist T300 are not a “higher handicap” iron, with the classic Titleist looks, and modern speed, any player looking to hit it higher and further is going to benefit from giving these a shot.

Which ones are for you?

GolfWRX.com always recommends you get fit! Keep in mind that the 2019-2020 Titleist Irons are designed to be mixed and matched to make up the perfect set for you. Go to an authorized fitter in your area.

HOWEVER, if you must make a decision now, boil it down to this: playability. If you are a better player but want some help, The 2019 Titleist T100 iron is it. If you want a bit more help and an iron that is a little more confidence-inspiring BUT don’t want to sacrifice much on the workability, the 2019 Titleist T200 iron is your choice. And if you just wanna hit bombs and have a blast, the 2019 Titleist T300 iron is it.

    I tried a fitting on the t200 and t300 last Saturday. No matter what shaft they used, they couldn’t get my spin rates and decent angle better than my Callaway cf16 apex.

    7 iron T200/300= 194 carry rolling out to 201. Decent angle 41*, with only 6700 rpm spin.
    Callaway 7 iron= 193 carry rolling to 196. Decent angle 45* with 8900 rpm spin.

    The loft jacking does become an issue.

    Maybe they are trying to sell more Foley’s b/c with these lofts seems you will. We’d 6 gap wedges

    100s look great other 2 look terrible. I’d rather ass the new utility on high end than the 200 series.

    My local Roger Dunn’s had them displayed yesterday and I hit the T100. Pure, but not so much different from the 718 AP2 and 718 MB. Would like to see what lightly used sets are going for in a few months.

What GolfWRXers are saying about the best Nike driver ever

Published

on

@ukgolfclubsales

In our forums, our members have been discussing Nike drivers. WRXer ‘DixieD’ is currently building up a Nike bag and has reached out to fellow members for driver advice, and WRXers have been sharing what they feel is the best Nike driver ever made.

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.

  • Ger21: “VR Pro LE? I have two I was still playing last year.”
  • mahonie: “The STR8-Fit Tour was one of the best drivers I’ve played. Still have it the garage and take it to the range occasionally…it would possibly still be in the bag if it hadn’t developed a ‘click’ in the head which I cannot fix. Long, straight(ish) and nice sound.”
  • jackr189: “The VR_S is one of the best.”
  • Finaus_Umbrella: “I played the Vapor Fly Pro, and still do on occasion for nostalgia sake. Sound and feel are great, but it demands a good strike.”
  • PowderedToastMan: “I enjoyed the SQ Tour back in the day, the one Tiger used forever. Do I miss it? Not at all, but it was a pretty good club for its time.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about driving irons for mid-handicappers

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing whether mid-handicappers can benefit from a driving iron. WRXer ‘jomatty’ says:

“I average about 230 off the tee on good drives. I can get a little more sometimes, but 230 is probably the average. I’m 42 years old and shoot in the mid to low 80’s. I do not get along with fairway woods very well, especially off the tee, and really don’t get enough extra length over my hybrid to consider using it aside from very rare situations on par 5’s (I’ve considered just going from driver to 19-degree hybrid and getting an extra wedge or something).”…

…and wants to know if he would be better served by a driving iron. Our members have been sharing their thoughts and suggestions.

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.

  • MtlJeff: “If you can shoot mid 80’s, you probably hit it well enough to hit a bunch of different clubs. Personally, I think hybrids are easier to hit….but some driving irons are quite forgiving. I use a G400 crossover that is very easy to hit and looks more iron-like. Something like that you might like. Be careful with some of them though because they aren’t always super forgiving, so you’d have to hit them first.”
  • HackerD: “G410 crossover is my version of a driving iron, feel like I hit it straighter than a hybrid. Just as easy to hit as a hybrid.”
  • hanginnwangin: “I shoot in the low 80s normally and in the 70s on my really good days. I have probably around the same or similar swing speed as you. I have been hitting my 4 iron off the tee on tight holes, and it’s been working pretty well so far. I hit it about 190-220. I have a 4 hybrid but just can’t hit it as consistently as the 4 iron, and it doesn’t even go much farther. I have a 5 wood which I only use for 220+ yard par 3s or wide-open fairways. Basically, it’s all personal preference and what you do best with. Everyone is going to be different. Try new stuff out and see what works. But if irons are the strongest part of your game (they are for me as well), I would give the 4 iron a shot. You can get a lot of roll out on the tee shots with it,”
  • Hellstrom: “Don’t laugh, but I bought a 17* hybrid with a senior flex shaft at a garage sale for $5, and I can hit it nice and easy and keep it in play without losing any distance. My driver SS is between 105 and 110 usually and swinging this thing feels like swinging a spaghetti noodle, but it works. I don’t have it in the bag all the time, but I do use it for certain courses. I take my 6 iron out and throw that in, so if I struggle with getting the ball off the tee, I just go to that.”
