It looks like Titleist ran out of ideas and stopped short of completing the back side.
I guess it does not affect performance.

I agree. Especially with the machine marks all around the toe it would seem like they are making a play on words and part of the story will be machined this or machined that.

The combo of the moderately thick sole with a thin top line makes me think that it's Titleist's response to p790 and i500

Very nice looking iron!

Although I didn't think you could make a ultra premium iron without at least 20 small screws/weights???

Its a good looking club in my opinion, but I'm kinda surprised that Titleist is trying to get into the distance iron game.  I'm excited to see how this one plays out.

Arenít they already there with AP1 abd now AP3?  Make a club for every type of golfer and I bet this is going to be a limited release like the c16 was that sold out on the 1000 sets they made

not that it will affect performance or the visual at address but it's a bit too busy for me, you have hard milling lines, soft lines and curve all going on together, ruined a what could be a great looking iron.

This exactly. The P790ís are most definitely TMís attempt to compete with clubs like T-MB and Apex. But this is WRX and we jump from newest club to newest club at the drop of the hat so our long term memories arenít that great.
