Titleist 620 MB, CB, and T100 irons to debut at U.S. Open

Published

on

It is always said that the U.S. Open is the ultimate test of skill and patience for a player’s entire game — driving, ball striking, recoveries, and putting.

In the case of ball striking, there really is no better proving ground than the U.S. Open, and this week Titleist is seeding the new 620 MB and 620 CB Irons along with a new addition to the line – T100 irons. The seeding process is Titleist’s way of getting new clubs into the hands of players under playing conditions and we say just a few weeks ago this same process for the new TS Hybrids and driving irons.

So far, the details are vague on what the new irons have in store from our friends in Fairhaven, Massachusetts but we can make some very obvious conclusions. The new 620 MBs and CBs will be the replacement for the current line of blade and cavity backs (I realize there couldn’t be a more softball take but it has to be said).

What is interesting about these new irons is the return to the 600 branding for Titleist, which was last used in the lineup for the 695 MB and CB irons, which go all the way back to 2006. The 600 name has always been associated with some of the best Titleist blades ever made including the 670, 680, and 690s.

Looking at the first release pictures of the new 620s, it’s yet to be seen if there are any multi-material aspects to the designs, but either way, I’m sure we will find out more details soon.

Speaking to multi-material what has also been included in this announcement are the T100s. They have an obvious AP look to them but in what also appears to be a smaller package.

The Titleist AP line has been a massive success since its introduction, but if there was one tiny bit of criticism (and I’m really searching here) it would be that it was harder to seamlessly blend the CB line into the AP line for those looking to build combo sets. Again this is early speculation, but if the new T100 has a smaller profile of the new CB but with the added ball speed and MOI of an AP iron, you could be seeing a lot of the T100s in the bags of players from pros to club golfer looking for that added advantage in the longer irons and even into the short clubs

    Let’s be honest, only the MBs look good, and at that – they’re probably going to be among the most unforgiving on the market.

    The MBs look amazing, I don’t care for the new CB look however – last model looked much cleaner IMO.

    The 620MB look gorgeous. The CBs are starting to look too busy. And the the T100 definitely look over designed. I’m not in the market, but I’m starting to get concerned where the iron lineup is going.

      They’re forged of 8620 in Taiwan but they won’t tell you that

    Was really looking forward to iteration #2 of the AP3s… wondering if that is still on the docket.

      I’ve said it before but my post was deleted.
      AP’s are gone and replaced with T100 (AP2), T200 (AP3) and T300 (AP1).

        Jun 10, 2019 at 12:15 pm

        Ah i guess i didnt know they were doing T200 or T300s as well. Good to know. I’m essentially just looking for a rocket 4 iron that i can hit 230 and the T200s and 300s hopefully will get me there. Thanks.

    Yes! Love the return of the curved muscleback! So many Titleist staffers have gone back to using the Titleist 680’s, not surprised to see Titleist go back to that design!

    I hope the T100 aren’t an AP2 replacement. The AP2’s have becoming iconic in their naming convention and it would be a bad move to go away from that.

    I’m still pissed I bought the MP-18 over the 716MB

    The MB is the best looking club on the market. Love the return to the 600 classification.

    Ryan, any word on if the U500 will eventually be full set to replace the TMBs?

      Great question but so far no news – by the looks of it I would say not likely at the moment

        Not sure if you mean Muscle Backs in general, or the 718 MB in specific when you say “MB is the best looking club on the market.” If the former, I agree. If the latter, I disagree. I’d put both the Callaway and Mizuno MBs over Titleist’s in the looks department.

Cobra releasing new Copper Series irons and RF Forged MB

Published

on

If you loved the look of the Cobra limited edition RF Proto Rev33 irons but were looking for an iron more forgiving to your golf game—or more friendly on your wallet—you’re in luck. The new Copper Series features some of the most popular irons in the company’s lineup, along with a new version of the King RF blades in a stunning copper finish.

King RF Forged MB Copper

The new Cobra RF MB blades share all the same features as the limited edition Rev33, except for the one key difference being the new RF MB’s are forged to final shape through a precise five-time forging process with the face and grooves being CNC milled—versus the Rev33 irons being 100 percent CNC milled to spec.

This change in the process produces an equally precise iron but at a friendlier price compared to the limited edition set.

Just like Rickie’s gamers, the RF MBs have a tungsten weight positioned in the toe to locate the CG directly behind the middle of the iron’s face to enhance stability and feel.

The King RF Forged MB irons will be available in right-handed only and come 4-iron through pitching wedge with KBS C-Taper 120 steel shafts, along with Lamkin Crossline Connect grips in the stock configuration. They are priced at $1,399.

King Tour & Forged Tec Copper irons

For the golfer looking for a compact cavity back, Cobra is also offering the recently released King Tour irons produced using MIM in copper.  Here’s a refresher on Metal Injection Molding:

It’s a process using a mixture of 304 stainless steel metal powder, which is heated and injected into a mold. Using a sintering process, the metal is heated to a higher temperature than forging (1340°C vs. 1200°C), which provides a smoother grain flow structure versus forged and cast to maximize soft feel.

Much like the RF MB, the multi-material King Tour irons have a tungsten weight inserted into the toe section to precisely locate the CG to the middle of the face.

The King Tour irons will be available in right and left-handed and come 4-iron through pitching wedge with KBS $-Taper 120 steel shafts, along with Lamkin Crossline Connect grips in the stock configuration. A 3-iron and gap wedge are also available through custom orders. They are priced at $1,399. 

(The King Tour irons will continue to be available in the standard chrome finish in right and left-handed)

Now, for those golfers who put a premium on distance, Cobra is also offering the King Forged Tec in copper with all the same technology you know and love from this compact hollow design.

The hollow iron heads are filled with foam microspheres to produce a soft and solid feel at impact and the face features what Cobra calls a forged PWRSHELL insert to maximizes ball speed and launch across the entire face.

The King Forged Tec irons will be available in right and left-handed (variable length only) and come 4-iron through pitching wedge, with a 3-iron and gap wedge available through custom orders. The stock configurations include KBS $-Taper lite in steel and Project X Catalyst 80 (x and s flex) and 60 in R-flex along with Lamkin Crossline Connect grips. The irons are priced at $1,199.  

(The chrome version of the irons will continue to be available in right and left-handed, in both variable and One Length, right and left-handed)

Final details

All three of the copper iron sets will be available at retail and through cobragolf.com starting March 12.

They will also include Cobra Connect powered by Arccos and come with a free 90-day trial of Arccos Caddie.

Jason Dufner testing a new Cobra 3D printed putter at the 2021 API

Published

Ahead of this week’s 2021 Arnold Palmer Invitational, Jason Dufner has been spotted with a new Cobra 3D printed putter. The 43-year-old has been testing the flat-stick on Bay Hill’s grounds ahead of this week’s event, and our members have been discussing the putter 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.

  • ChxDigLongBall: “Dig the name. Looks pretty good. I’d give it a roll. Interested to see what it feels like.”
  • av1084: “Weird all around, in a good way.”
  • KAndyMan: “Can’t wait to see what the putter line up will consist of! Definitely a cool idea using 3d printing. The possibilities are endless with it. Would/will be a strange day in the future when you can get online, design your own one-off putter in the morning and have it at your door before your league tee time that afternoon.”
