Published

Golfers love new shiny chrome clubs, but we also love satin and black-finished ones too. I guess you could ultimately say when it comes to club finishes, we like choice, which is why Titleist is releasing its most popular players distance Titleist T100S irons and Titleist T200 irons in an all-new stealthy black PVD finish.

Titleist T100S Black, Titleist T200 Black: The details

The new Black PVD irons have been a highly requested item from golfers since the first black T100 irons were spotted on tour shortly after the release of the T-Series, in the bag of Sony Open winner Cameron Smith.

“We’ve heard from golfers asking us to build these all-black editions–the combination of the Black PVD finish with the matte black shaft and matching grip is just stunning.” – Josh Talge, Vice President, Titleist Golf Ball Marketing.

Also, it what can only be categorized under the “professional golfers are just like us” file, Houston Open winner Lanto Griffin quickly requested a set after seeing Cameron Smith’s set when he posted them to Instagram.

“The first time I saw these irons they looked so good I didn’t want to put a scratch on them. The black finish just looks tighter to me and really fits my eye. It also helps to keep a little bit of the shine off which I really like.” – Cameron Smith

The T-Series Black irons build on the popular T-Series line of from Titleist, which included the T100, which is the number one iron model played on tour.

    They all look great on the rack, but after 6 round they look TERRIBLE

    I just don’t get this?

    It’s adorable how you guys think “capitalism” means “let’s make things that last long”.

    It’s like you’re all riding unicorns past leprechauns under rainbows of trickle-down economy.

    Aww…

    Why aren’t they using DBM finishing like Cobra or even Maltby? These look awful in a season.

      Be lucky to last a season and keep the looks. Basically half of NA can’t use these without the sandy turf destroying it. But they will more than happily sell you another set…

    These are black chrome, which wears fast and looks terrible.
    Callaway has done this with black Apex and ended up with lots of unhappy customers. The Raw Black like the Cobra MB finish would be much better.

    I wish they would have done this finish on the T100 also and not just the T100s and T200. Wonder if they will ever do that?

    Why not use the more durable finish that Ben Hogan clubs use?

      Exactly. If you’re going to charge $200 per club, you should at least use a decent finish.

What driver are you playing and why? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been talking drivers. WRXer ‘Hogan9’ kicks off the thread saying:

“I play the Ping G400 10.5* with the stock Alta regular shaft. I’m 70 with a torn rotator cuff and really struggle with distance off the tee. I’ve tried various models of almost every brand out there, and the G400 is the longest and straightest for my swing.”

And our members have been revealing their driver of choice and why it made its way into their bag in our forums.

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.

  • BogeyParBogey: “M3 440 9* with Tensei White stiff. I don’t hit the ball that far (good ones go 220-230), but for whatever reason this driver has been much longer for me than others. The ST190 9.5* with Atmos Red regular was an absolute disaster to start the year.”
  • TaylorMadehunter1: “Mavrik Sub Zero 9*, Callaway green dot adapter set to -2, Tensei Raw White 65TX. Tried just about every offering out there this year and this one has been the best performer for me personally. Seems to have eliminated most of my duck hook shots and have at least made them more playable. “
  • EvoXWW: “Cobra F9 9* w/ Tour AD TP 7X. Hit straight bombs with it all last year, 290 avg hitting 81% FIR. However, this season I’ve lost all consistency and distance. Distance is down at 260 avg and only hitting 57% FIR. I have never been fit, so I’m looking to getting a fitting session with the TSi series to see how it compares.”
  • scooterhd2: “Ping G410+. I’m really drawn towards the slightly heavier head weights. I tend to get super quick, and my tempo is really good with the 410. One of the rare setups that is super forgiving, but also has a deep mode where it can get as long as anything. Never hit 300+ yards drives before, and when this I hit one every other round.”
  • LUXOR54: “Titleist 915D3 8.5° A1 setting w/ Diamana D+ limited 70-S. Always been a fan of smaller headed drivers, 440 and under just suits my eye. Had a spell with the sldr 430, but it would occasionally knuckleball and just fall out of the sky, misses were erratic. The 915 with its slight fade bias, produces straight tee shots and the occasional power fade. Can tee it high and send low spin monsters, or tee it down and hit wind-fighting bullets. It’s put me in parts of the fairway that I’ve never been before, and when I miss it, results aren’t bad either.”
