Spotted: Titleist 718 T-MB Irons

Published

on

The two photos of what appear be Titleist’s yet-to-be-announced 718 T-MB irons landed in our forum after being posted on Instagram by TourSpecGolf, an online retailer that specializes in Japanese golf equipment. The photos are the first indication that Titleist might release an updated version of its 716 T-MB irons, which were launched in October 2015.

The 716 T-MB irons are a first-of-its-kind set from Titleist, using a three-piece, hollow-body construction that merges a high-strength steel face with an average of 80 grams of tungsten in each cast iron head. We gave the 716 T-MB irons 5 Stars in our review, saying golfers will be “wowed by the distance and forgiveness they get from their stunning, compact design.”

Full sets of the 716 T-MB irons are sold through Titleist’s Made-Only-To-Order (MOTO) program for $1599 per set, with 2-5 irons being sold at retail for $199 (steel) and $229 (graphite). The irons have been used by several PGA Tour players, both as full sets and as long-iron replacements.

The 718 T-MB photos show a look that’s highly similar to the 716 T-MB irons with a few noticeable differences. For one, 718 is engraved on the hosel of the irons. More interestingly, the anodized bronze finish on the sole and back of the irons has been slimmed, giving the irons a more streamlined aesthetic.

    The first sign of this was when TSG reduced the 716 model to $800USD, not the pics from TSG.

    I didn’t notice this before, but this is basically the same tech (hollow head) has the Parsons irons?

    I’m sure they’ll be overpriced like everything Titleist makes.

      Price is listed in the article, and yes they are overpriced.

    Looks like the tungsten might have a darker tint? Would be great to see a black or darker grey option in 2018.

5 Wood vs. Hybrid vs. Driving/Utility Iron – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing where they stand on the 5-wood vs Hybrid vs UI dilemma. WRXer ‘Michboomin’ kicks off the thread, saying

“I play an Apex 3i w/ MMT 105TX, and it’s fantastic, can hit every shot; I recommend this set up to anyone. However….I like to tinker, and something keeps telling me to try a 5 wood. I tested out a Titleist 2 hybrid last season and wasn’t a fan, hybrids just don’t feel solid to me. 

Just curious what you guys like to play and why.”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts in our forum.

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.

  • lefthack: “I love my 5 wood. I am still playing with other clubs; I am currently using the GAPR Lo 3 and thinking of getting the Lazrus 2i. I have also thought about a 7 wood just because. I took my 3 wood and GAPR Mid 4 out, so I have room for something at the top.”
  • PEI_Golfer: “I prefer a hybrid and have settled in nicely with my 19* TS3 (set to C1) with AV Raw Blue 75X. Very stable and quite straight now vs. the out going stock EFW T1100 S and X. Tried to replace it with a Sim 5wd this year, and it just didn’t work out. I dabble with DI’s, but the hybrid is as long and more versatile.”
  • Ger21: “I swapped a 5w for a 2 hybrid, as the 5 wood would balloon too often. Both, though, are much longer than a 3iron, so I also carry a 3 hybrid that replaced a 3 iron. Prefer the 3 iron from the tee, but the iron is much more usable everywhere else.”
  • SteelieD: “I finally ditched the hybrid and put a 5 wood back in the bag. Hybrids and I just never got along.”
