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.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Lighter shaft for dealing with joint tiredness?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Zigzog, who is a long-time golfer searching for the best methods for dealing with joint tiredness and aching elbow pain during/following his rounds. Zigzog has been considering moving to a lighter shaft to reduce the pain, and our members have been sharing their tips and tricks on the subject.

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.

  • Galanga: “Passenger in the same boat. I believe lighter weight and shock absorption is the ticket — many stories to of it working on this site. I second the prior poster’s suggestion to not go down in weight too quickly. For me, the graphite shaft selection effort has been a rabbit hole. Probably best to go to a fitter w lots of options and expertise.”
  • KensingtonPark: “I am in a similar position as you. I am experimenting with tour weighted graphite shafts in my irons. It definitely seems to help, as vibration more than weight is the source of my joint fatigue. That and a lack of stretching…”
  • rwc356: “I’ve been playing 50+ years and started feeling my age about 10 years ago. While I never had a plus handicap, I did play to a single digit handicap until my early 50’s. Arthritis and other health issue started creating havoc with my game, and I made the transition to graphite and more forgiving clubs. I was afraid to leave what I knew, and so I converted a few clubs (5 iron and 7 iron) to graphite and tried them for a number of rounds. It wasn’t long before I realized that I could play them as well as steel shafts and so I added the rest of short irons. Been playing 3 seasons with graphite and not sure I could go back. I love old blades and have a number of sets which I sneak back to every so often – result is always the same, shaft too heavy and body too sore. Good luck with finding a solution that fits your game best.”
  • jjfcpa: “I’m 72 years old and didn’t start playing golf till I was 67, so I have no memory of what it was like to play steel shafts or have a fast swing speed. I find that playing lighter shafts (in my case graphite) to be much easier on the joints. I also found that doing strength training at the gym doing the offseason really makes it much easier to maintain your performance level during the golf season.”

WRX Spotlight: Cobra King Forged TEC irons

Published

on

The skinny: As Ryan Barath first reported, the introduction of the newest Cobra King Forged TEC irons for 2020, it is taking speed and forgiveness to a whole new level.

Behind what appears to be an extremely traditional-looking muscleback iron hides a huge amount of technology designed to help players of all abilities, whether it be with a traditional variable-length set or with Cobra’s One Length set—more on that latter. The King Forged TEC irons are a hollow-body design that utilizes a thin face supported by what Cobra engineers call energizing foam microspheres, to both fine-tune acoustics (sound/feel) of the head, while also supporting the PWRSHELL Face for increased ball speeds, according to the company.

Our take on Cobra King Forged TEC irons

Not only do the new Cobra Forged TEC irons pass the eyeball test, but the engineers at Cobra have also developed a club with excellent performance.

In our own testing, the clubs had several features which really stood out

Performance out of the rough: with the low tungsten insert, the low center of gravity performs outstanding from thick lies.

Face consistency: with other similar clubs, our experience is that perfectly struck shots tend to “fly”, sometimes flying considerably longer. With the Forged Tec, the face is incredibly consistent. Off-center hits, particularly off the toe, fly remarkably well.

Chipping: with a clean look, and little offset, one of the additional nuances of these clubs is how good they are to chip (pitch) with.

When ordering the set, keep in mind that there is only a two-degree difference between the 5 (23 degrees) and 4-iron (21 degrees). This lead to some uneven gapping and as a result, we discarded the 4-iron and instead decided to bend the 5-iron, one degree strong.
