2019 Titleist T-Series irons—T100, T200, and T300—hit retail

Published

on

The 2019 and 2020 Titleist T-Series irons: On August 30th, the Titleist T-Series T100 (AP2 replacement), T200 (AP3 replacement), and T300 (AP1 replacement) will hit retail stores, and what will be waiting for golfers is an iron line that will satisfy on multiple levels.

GolfWRX staff has had a chance to hit and study the Titleist T-Series since its initial launch and these are the early reactions.

LOOKS: Titleist T-100 irons

The 2019 Titleist T100 iron has a couple of key changes to the optics that we think are a huge improvement over the AP2.

  • Thinner topline
  • Reduced off-set

Both of these changes were based on the input from tour staffer Jordan Spieth. Here is what he had to say about the AP2 Replacement

“When I first saw the T-100 irons and it didn’t say ‘AP2’ on it, I had to have full trust,” Spieth said. “I’m sitting there saying, ‘Man, I played the same iron that said the same thing on it since 2010, probably earlier.’ But I’ve been playing Titleist clubs since I was 12 years old, and they’ve never led me in the wrong direction and they’ve always gotten better. And the idea of a name change – really an entire change across the board with their irons – is big. But there are big changes.”

FEEL: Titleist T100 Irons

The 2019-2020 Titleist T-100 iron is equipped with a new fully-forged dual cavity construction that provides more consistency across the face as well as increased ball speed for maximum distance. The face is thinner overall but a solid “forged blade” feel is not sacrificed.

66 grams of dual-density tungsten was placed in the heel and toe of the mid and long irons to increase stability and provide a heavier hit overall.

“The Titleist T100 irons shocked me a bit. It’s actually very forgiving on miss hits which for me is a thin, center strike. Typically with players irons that miss always has a dead feel to me, with The T100 not only did it feel fantastic but I still got the proper feedback, spin and carry….does that make sense?”-Johnny Wunder, Host of The Gear Dive

OVERALL: Titleist T 100 Irons

“The Titleist T100 iron is a winner form top to bottom. It looks amazing, its extremely playable and the new thinner topline and reduced offset may convert the traditional MB/CB players. I don’t think it’s any coincidence that a good number of tour players that have never put the AP2 in the bag are starting to mess around with these.”-Johnny Wunder, Host of The Gear Dive

Titleist has also launched for 2019 and 2020 their player irons the Titleist 620 MB blade and the Titleist 620 CB cavity back irons. You can see that in a separate article here.

LOOKS: Titleist T-200 irons

The very first thing I noticed about the 2019 Titleist T200 iron is that although slightly more rounded and bigger than the smaller 100, thanks to the tweaking of the topline, sole and toe profile, the T200 to me looks more like an older AP2 than its predecessor in the lineup, AP3. The short irons of the T200s still frame the ball very nicely and allow for workability and the chance to flight shots.

FEEL

Max Impact sounds and looks very different from any Titleist iron before it, because it is. Thanks to new materials and manufacturing techniques, along with lessons learned through the development of the Concept Series and Speed Project, the 2019 Titleist T200 has an unsupported forged L-Face that not only feels fantastic but flexes for more ball speed.

That’s what I loved about these irons, they felt so close to the Titleist T100s as far as feel and sound go, that I instantly thought of building a combo set. The ball takes off high and comes down soft. The speed is the reason stronger lofts are required for the 2019 Titleist T200 LAUNCH. The lower COG paired with the faster face and higher ball speed means that without going stronger, players are going to spin it TOO much—not something you would generally expect from a club with “stronger” lofts. but what I really loved about them was how they felt through the turf. They don’t have the feel of a midsized iron…but they do have the speed!

I loved everything about the T200 and I think that if you are getting fit for new irons, these have to be on the list to try!

LOOKS

The 2019 and 2020 Titleist T300 irons is a game improvement, tech-packed, fun to hit distance iron. So if you are a traditionalist, then we get it, it’s not a forged blade. HOWEVER, The Titleist T300 is a well put together package that won’t offend anyone from an optics standpoint. The 2019 Titleist T 300 iron has a clean mid-size look with a nice top line, a longer blade length and progressive offset.

Long story short, if a better player snuck a 4 or 5-iron in a blended set, they would find a set that blended VERY nicely.

FEEL

They are by no means clicky or clunky and that again comes backs to how the dampening of the Max Impact behind the face. Just like the other irons in the T Series, through the turf, they perform like a much smaller club because of the redesigned and finely tuned camber and radius.

When I first saw the specs for the T300, I said what a lot of people did “WOW, these lofts are strong, they should go very far.” But as someone that knows clubs, I know that stated loft is not the full story, and at this point in golf technology, I’m completely done with hearing that as an excuse for players to NOT trying a club. In the case of T300, we’re still talking Max Impact. The T300’s don’t hide who they are—an undercut, fast, forgiving iron meant for speed.

The unsupported face is stretched across a larger area thanks to the bigger face size, wider sole, and undercut perimeter that pushes the CG lower and away from the face! The deep CG and thin fast face are what makes this club launch so high, which is another reason why I really liked it. You won’t confuse the feel of the 2019 Titleist T300 with the 2019 Titleist T100 because they are completely different animals. The 2019 Titleist T300 feel and sound FAST!

To me, the 2019 Titleist T300 are not a “higher handicap” iron, with the classic Titleist looks, and modern speed, any player looking to hit it higher and further is going to benefit from giving these a shot.

Which ones are for you?

GolfWRX.com always recommends you get fit! Keep in mind that the 2019-2020 Titleist Irons are designed to be mixed and matched to make up the perfect set for you. Go to an authorized fitter in your area.

HOWEVER, if you must make a decision now, boil it down to this: playability. If you are a better player but want some help, The 2019 Titleist T100 iron is it. If you want a bit more help and an iron that is a little more confidence-inspiring BUT don’t want to sacrifice much on the workability, the 2019 Titleist T200 iron is your choice. And if you just wanna hit bombs and have a blast, the 2019 Titleist T300 iron is it.

    I tried a fitting on the t200 and t300 last Saturday. No matter what shaft they used, they couldn’t get my spin rates and decent angle better than my Callaway cf16 apex.

    7 iron T200/300= 194 carry rolling out to 201. Decent angle 41*, with only 6700 rpm spin.
    Callaway 7 iron= 193 carry rolling to 196. Decent angle 45* with 8900 rpm spin.

    The loft jacking does become an issue.

    100s look great other 2 look terrible. I’d rather ass the new utility on high end than the 200 series.

    My local Roger Dunn’s had them displayed yesterday and I hit the T100. Pure, but not so much different from the 718 AP2 and 718 MB. Would like to see what lightly used sets are going for in a few months.

Puma unveils new Ignite Fasten8 golf shoe

Published

on

Puma Golf has today introduced the newest addition to its popular spikeless franchise: the Ignite Fasten8.

The new Ignite Fasten8 ($120) family are designed to provide wearers added stability with a new, exacting fit in multiple sleek designs, featuring both a traditional lace-up style and Puma’s proprietary DISC technology, and also a PRO version with a microfiber upper. The Fasten8 lace version is also available in several eye-catching colorways for women ($100).

The lineup is led by Puma’s new Fasten8 Fit System, which consists of 8 interior webbing support straps that are integrated into the lacing system. The 8 webbing straps are secured from underneath the foot, and when the laces, or Disc, are tightened, each of the Fasten8 straps aims to deliver an exceptionally secure, personalized fit for players with all foot shapes and sizes.

The Fasten8 also features PWRCAGE (a TPU saddle integrated with midfoot support webbing straps), and PWRFRAME (an ultra-thin TPU frame placed in high-stress areas) technologies, both of which are designed to contribute to greater overall stability during the swing and increased comfort while walking. 

Speaking on the new additions from Puma, Andrew Lawson, PLM, Footwear, Puma Golf said

“The new Ignite Fasten8 shoe continues to deliver the cool, classic style that has become synonymous with PUMA Golf, in a popular mix of colorways that will appeal to a wide range of playersWhen you combine our innovative new Fasten8 Fit System with Puma’s other impressive footwear technologies you have a shoe that delivers true versatility, style and performance, all while ensuring the perfect fit and feel for every golfer.” 

Enhanced comfort and performance in a variety of turf conditions (or even for wear off the course) is provided by a strategically designed, organically-altered traction pattern in the sole, as well as IGNITE Foam in the midsole, which bids to yield energy return and cushioning throughout the course of 18 holes.

The Fasten8 shoe also features a non-stretch, waterproof and breathable mesh construction in the forefoot area, which bids to provide versatile performance in varying weather conditions and SoleShield, a micro-thin TPU film that is vacuum-formed around the midsole to make cleaning off dirt and debris quick and easy. In addition, the Fasten8 Pro features a microfiber upper for style and performance.

Puma’s Ignite Fasten8 and Ignite Fasten8 Disc are available in six colorways in sizes 7-14. Ignite Fasten8 Pro is available in five colorways in the same size range, while Ignite Fasten8 Women’s is available in sizes 5.5-12 in four colorways.

Vokey launches new Slate Blue finish on SM8 wedges

Published

on

Looks are important when it comes to having confidence in your clubs, and with that in mind, Titleist is releasing a new Slate Blue finish for its Vokey SM8 wedge line.

The slate blue finish is applied just like a standard PVD (physical vapor deposition) finish but involves using a unique material that increases the production time. The result of the material and additional time is a rich deep finish that not only looks great but also has a longer life compared to traditional PVD.

“Very often, wedge finishes can be beautiful, but they won’t last,” said Vokey. “At the same time, the most durable finishes often aren’t stunning. Slate Blue combines the two. Not only will golfers love their wedge when they see it in the shop, the finish will last through the course of normal play.”

When it comes to technology the Slate Blue Vokey wedges offer the same progressive forward center of gravity for increased MOI and ball flight control, along with 100-percent inspected spin milled grooves.

Price and availability

Vokey Design SM8 Slate Blue wedges will be available in golf shops starting March 19, and will be available in all 23 loft, bounce, and grind options in both right and left-handed.

The wedges will be priced at $199 in their stock configuration which features a True Temper Dynamic Gold S200 and custom BV Wings New Decade Multi Compound grip from Golf Pride.

Additional customizations such as character stamping are available for an additional fee.
