Published

Golfers love new shiny chrome clubs, but we also love satin and black-finished ones too. I guess you could ultimately say when it comes to club finishes, we like choice, which is why Titleist is releasing its most popular players distance Titleist T100S irons and Titleist T200 irons in an all-new stealthy black PVD finish.

Titleist T100S Black, Titleist T200 Black: The details

The new Black PVD irons have been a highly requested item from golfers since the first black T100 irons were spotted on tour shortly after the release of the T-Series, in the bag of Sony Open winner Cameron Smith.

“We’ve heard from golfers asking us to build these all-black editions–the combination of the Black PVD finish with the matte black shaft and matching grip is just stunning.” – Josh Talge, Vice President, Titleist Golf Ball Marketing.

Also, it what can only be categorized under the “professional golfers are just like us” file, Houston Open winner Lanto Griffin quickly requested a set after seeing Cameron Smith’s set when he posted them to Instagram.

“The first time I saw these irons they looked so good I didn’t want to put a scratch on them. The black finish just looks tighter to me and really fits my eye. It also helps to keep a little bit of the shine off which I really like.” – Cameron Smith

The T-Series Black irons build on the popular T-Series line of from Titleist, which included the T100, which is the number one iron model played on tour.

    They all look great on the rack, but after 6 round they look TERRIBLE

    I just don’t get this?

    It’s adorable how you guys think “capitalism” means “let’s make things that last long”.

    It’s like you’re all riding unicorns past leprechauns under rainbows of trickle-down economy.

    Aww…

    Why aren’t they using DBM finishing like Cobra or even Maltby? These look awful in a season.

      Be lucky to last a season and keep the looks. Basically half of NA can’t use these without the sandy turf destroying it. But they will more than happily sell you another set…

    These are black chrome, which wears fast and looks terrible.
    Callaway has done this with black Apex and ended up with lots of unhappy customers. The Raw Black like the Cobra MB finish would be much better.

    I wish they would have done this finish on the T100 also and not just the T100s and T200. Wonder if they will ever do that?

    Why not use the more durable finish that Ben Hogan clubs use?

      Exactly. If you’re going to charge $200 per club, you should at least use a decent finish.

Best draw-biased fairway woods? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing draw-biased fairway woods. WRXer ‘CGallery’ kicks off the thread, saying

“I have been struggling to find a fairway wood that I have liked but have never tried a draw-biased one. I struggle over fading the ball at points, so it could be a good fit, but the trouble is I can’t seem to find one that has a heavy enough shaft in a stiff flex used to try… any models you have tried would be appreciated!”

And our members have been sharing their suggestions 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.

  • 14max: “Both the SFT and Mavrik Max have been pleasantly draw-biased for me…”
  • William70: “Cobra f6. That thing sets up so closed that you could hook/draw it without even trying.”
  • Ian-500: “My Max D 3 wood is very slightly draw-biased, but in all the reviews I’ve read/seen then as others have said, the Ping SFT looks to be the most draw biased.”
  • dMeeksDC: “If you want one that is easy to draw but does not look closed, Ping g425 SFT is your winner. Plus, it’s adjustable to get it just right. If you don’t mind a little offset (instead of looking closed, which I can’t look at), trust me that the B21 is the best draw-biased fairway wood Callaway offers. Looks great, sounds great, goes a mile. I don’t mind offset. It performs really well.”
