Titleist 620 MB, Titleist 620 CB irons arrive at retail

Published

on

New for 2019 and 2020 Titleist has launched new player forged iron models the Titleist 620 MB blade and the Titleist 620 CB cavity back forged irons.

The new 2019 and 2020 Titleist 620 MB irons are a simple classic blade that any traditionalist will love. On August 30th, 2019 these new Titleist irons hit retail. From the initial launch at the U.S. Open, Titleist staff players like Jimmy Walker, Webb Simpson, and a few more put them straight in the bag. That’s saying a lot considering how hard it is for the tour players to switch so quickly.

The Gear Dive’s Johnny Wunder interviewed BMW Champion Justin Thomas on his upcoming switch

“It’ll be very easy…I’ll throw ‘em in the bag [when I start practicing again after the season ends].” “They are almost identical to the custom 718 MB I play now so there isn’t much to get used to”

LOOKS

I mean what can you say other than they are absolutely beautiful. The New Titleist 620 MB irons remind me of the classic Titleist Box Blades I saw when I was a kid. The design, the badging all of it are a nod to classic golf. If you notice anything different it would be a slightly boxier toe, slightly thinner topline and VERY little offset. Overall, they are hard not to love. The set progression from long to short irons gives the player a tad bit longer blade length in 3-7 and a boxier look in the 8-P.

FEEL

The new Titleist 620 MB irons feel like they look. Flawless, soft, responsive, precise, unforgiving by design and will check off every box an elite player would look for. The one-piece 1025 forging is soft but not overly. The sole has a good bit of bounce for perfect turf interaction.

LOOKS

Like the blade, the 2019 Titleist 620 CB Iron has gone through a total refinement process to get to where it is today. The overall look of the iron has similar tweaks as the MB but with a bit more beef for the player looking for some help.

Progressive set from top to bottom, thin top line, reduced offset and a tour inspired sole make this a pure player iron. HOWEVER some invisible tweaks were made to the set for a bit more performance namely the tungsten plugs in the 3 and 4-iron to lower CG and get the ball up a bit, which is something the tour players love.

FEEL

The 2019 Titleist 620 CB does what it says it will do. Thats the trick with both of these offerings, there isn’t anything crazy about them. They are simple and consistent. For players looking for feedback, workability and the ability to feel a shot from top to bottom, these have that. In testing, we did notice they aren’t as soft at impact in comparison to the Titleist 620 MB irons, but they still offer a that “heavy hit” players like and with the new camber in the sole, there is a microscopic difference between the two irons.

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, you can boil it down to this….trajectory. Pure and simple.
If you wanna keep it down and center contact is no issue, the 2019 Titleist 620 MB iron is the pick. To get it up a bit more, 2019 Titleist 620 CB is better. It’s that simple.

    If I had the game I would bag 4,5,6 CB and 7,8,9,W in the MB. Nice upgrade from the 718

    Can’t wait to see these in person, especially the CB short irons – they look a bit too rounded in the toe from pictures. Regardless, those MBs are pure.

Honma launches new XP-1 Series driver, fairway woods, and hybrids for 2020

Published

on

new 2020 Honma Driver

For 2020, Honma Golf is launching the all-new XP-1 line of clubs comprised of an entire family holistically designed to help players maximize forgiveness and get the most out of their games with one set. The new Honma XP-1 drivers, fairway woods, and hybrids, all the way to irons, is a new direction for the premium Japanese company that brings together ultimate craftsmanship with performance.

The highlight of the XP-1 line from Honma is the fact that they were designed from top to bottom to work as a comprehensive set of tool to achieve maximum performance. The technology in the metal woods flows from the driver to the hybrids with a seamless transition that creates consistency for feel and looks for the player.

Honma XP-1 driver

Honma is known for its dedication to quality and craftsmanship, and every part of the XP-1 line was developed with the golfer in mind to both look appealing and perform to the highest standards. The XP-1 driver packs a lot of technology into a very classic looking club, and we’re here to take you under the hood—or in this case, the carbon fiber crown—to show you how it can help you hit better shots.

It starts with a tour-inspired look from address, designed to inspire confidence for any level of golfer. Underneath ther gloss black crown, there is a lot of technology to generate faster ball speeds around the entire face and help get you dialed into the right setting. Speaking to the crown, it’s made from ET-40 fiber, making it one the lightest in golf. This weight savings helps engineers relocate an additional 15g of mass around the head towards the heel for increased MOI and greater ability to help players close the club face more easily.

Flip the driver upside down, and we have a lot more going on with the sole than initially meets the eye. Honma is introducing a new double slot in the sole for increased ball speed across a much larger area of the face. What starts off smaller in the middle increases in width and depth as it reaches towards the heel and the toe of the club. These slots, along with improved MOI, keep ball speeds up and misses closer to the intended target. The last part of the equation: How these wider parts of the face, flex around the more narrow middle to also increase gear effect—think of it like one more way to help the bigger misses stay in play.

The last piece key piece of technology in the XP-1 driver head is exclusive to Honma—the adjustable hosel that changes face angle, lie, and loft, but never changes the orientation of the shaft. This gives the player or fitter the ability to truly dial in hosel settings without having to worry about the constantly changing of the grip orientation. This, according to Honma, also keeps the shaft spine in the ideal location for consistent performance.

Honma is the only manufacturer that produces its own shafts from start to finish in house, and the XP-1 is getting its own custom-designed and built shafts to complement the technology built into the heads. The Vizard stock shafts are engineered to produce a smooth feel that promotes faster clubhead speeds, yet also remain extremely stable. For the XP-1 driver, the matching Vizard shafts will come in weights of 43g, 53g, and 63g, and flexes from senior to stiff.

Honma XP-1 fairway woods

The XP-1 woods bring the same level of craftsmanship and technology as the drivers to a club designed for use both off the tee and off the fairway.

The Honma XP-1 3-wood uses the same weight-saving ET-40 crown to position a large amount of the club’s total mass low and on the sole for greatest possible launch and spin consistency. The 3-wood is the second-lightest club in most players bags by total weight and head mass, and unless you are carrying a second driver, it’s also the second-largest by volume. By using the carbon crown designers get everything they can from the other technologies including the double slot sole and thin fast face without having to sacrifice the overall design of not just the head but the entire club.

The XP-1 fairways also include a 5  7-woods, but with the smaller volume of the heads and the reduced crown size, using a carbon crown would actually increase the mass higher in the head, so they instead utilize an extremely thin high strength steel crown.

All of the fairway woods come with the same made-in-Sakata, Japan 43g, 53g, and 63g Vizard shaft options as the driver to help every player get the most of each club in the set. If might seem like a minor detail, but being able to design an entire club in house from head to grip is a big advantage for Honma versus other OEMs. This holistic approach to designing an entire club/set is a big benefit to the consumer looking to get the most out of each club in their bag and not feel like something may be working against them.

Honma XP-1 hybrid

With the Honma XP-1 hybrid, forgiveness and flow from the fairway woods is the number one consideration for these club. The flow includes a wood-like shape that keeps the club shallow and the center of gravity as low as possible for higher launch and approach shots that fly higher and land softer. Considering the target player for the XP-1 line, the wood-like shape is also very confidence-inspiring.

Honma continues the design philosophy of keeping the XP-1 both forgiving and fast by utilizing the double slot sole all the way into these hybrids that go from a 19-degree 3-iron replacement to a 25-degree 5-iron replacement.

Honma XP-1 specs & availability

The Honma XP-1 driver, fairway wood, and hybrids will be available starting in October.
