Wet sanding, I used 280, 400, 800 and 2000 grit. Making sure it stays wet so it wont leave any scratches and masking of what I dont want to sand. Takes around 20 mins per club. The sole is easy but the "bumpers" or whatever you wanna call them on the back takes patience. Wouldnt do a whole set like this though but for my two clubs it was worth it

By wet sand, do you literally mean water? Never done this and really really like the look. Have any pictures of them in the bag?

Its a special sandpaper that you dip in water to make/keep it wet which reduces the friction. Lower friction means less impact on each pass so its slower but lets you gradually go thorugh the paint so you dont go down to the nickel part of it. If you go without masking you minimize the risk of putting scratches where you dont want them as well. I had to get rid of the masking when I was working the bumpers since i had to replace them every 2 mins because of their location so I just got tired of it and went at it anyways.

I'll get some pics tomorrow

What lie angle do you play your irons? Couldn't help but notice there's range mat residue a long way up the toe part of the sole on that 3-iron.

I should play at +1 but I play -1 to take the left side away completely since I prefer a fade

How do the T-MB heads compare to AP2's weight wise?  I've heard that the T-MB heads are very heavy in relation so that if I ordered my same set up I have in AP2's right now they would be a much heavier swing weight than I'm used to.  Anyone had this issue, what did you do?  Order T-MB at a certain swing weight?

I really like the idea and the look of the T-MB's so I'm considering them as my next iron set.

As great as these look, I have a feeling it'll be difficult to knock the 712U out of the bag.  Thing is something else!
i said the same thing until i hit one... now my son has the old 712u 3 iron and i have a 2, 3 and 4 T-MB.

Interesting, when I tested the 716 TMB 2 iron I didn't find much of an improvement off the tee however with the same shaft as the 712U it performed a bit better off the deck.

People don't realize that Titleist irons are pretty much the most upright irons on the market. The T-MB's are surprisingly easy to bend

Hit the 4 and 5 and 7 on the weekend on demo day

Wow

Great feel

I loved them w the xp90 shaft, 2 flat and plus 3/4"

I hit my irons low so I loved the high flight on these

Feel up my alley as I love S55 already

Hit a lot of iron vs iron vs iron this weekend

S55 beats out my x-proto and j15 mb's.  Can't shake these 55's (which I also preferred over my iblades)

I just had a Titleist fitting and was fitted into 718 tmb with Modus 105. Rather than spending almost $2000 on a new set of irons, I found the exact set I needed in 716 on eBay and jumped on the opportunity. I have played 3 rounds so far with these and it is impressive (distance, trajectory, feel). I doubt there is any noticeable difference between the 716 and 718 TMBs ( according to Titleist, more tungsten in 718 90g compared to 83g in 716 leading to higher MOI)  but others on this board can chime in if there is an upgrade.

If someone can actually notice the difference, they wouldnít be posting on these boards

Iím a huge titleist fanboy admittedly but imo these maintain the same feel of 716 just seem a touch more forgiving.

Duel between 718 T-MB and P790 in Swedish golf magazine.

image1.JPG

Short summary:

Looks

T-MB wins by having amazing thin topline and compact head very blade like.

Feel and sound

T-MB wins by having softer feel and regarding sound P790 are more clicky.

Forgivenss

P790 wins, especially on thin hits.

Acquisitiveness

T-MB is stronger, but too expensive so P790 wins.

Total score, T-MB wins.

718 T-MB looks the same as my 716 T-MB 2i.  I like my 17* 2i and hit it well.  Considered the 3i too, but wouldn't want others in the set.  

My 716 T-MB is forgiving when compared to my other 2 irons.  Having said that, if a person plays ANY 2 iron, he'd better put a good swing on it, otherwise, the balls NOT going anywhere worth mentioning, even T-MB.

I have to choke down about 1-1.5" to be effective off the deck, not so off a tee.  Last weekend off 385 Par 4 tee, right down the middle 225yds.  I really do like the club, except when stuck well, can't feel the ball off the face.

I know this is just wishful thinking, but canít get do a limited edition 681 T stamp remake at some point. I remember hitting one of those super limited edition ones that my friend had, forged by miura, still better than anything out there today. Obvi I canít afford those, and think the 716/718 are great, but it would be fun to run it back with the 681s with legal grooves.

To do 681Ts they would need to buy the design from Titleist and the forge dies if they still exist from Miura and Hoffman. Any copy might get a call from Titleist if the measurements were the same and for sure if they referenced or stamped them 681, 681T, T (all of which were produced). Easy to tell who produced them, Hoffman produced had bad chrome jobs with hosel chrome cracking. Miura had good chrome jobs. I had a sample of each including one of the display cases exact duplicate of Tigerís set (not just grind but shafts which were not playable by me)..

I was talking about Titleist doing it. If they wanted to, there wouldn’t be any obstacles right?
