GolfWRX Spotlight: Takomo Iron 101T

Published

on

Product: Takomo Iron 101T

Pitch: Takomo Iron 101T shares the sleek looks of its big brother, Iron 101. The blade length is slightly shorter, the topline is thinner and the sole is narrower.

The 101T has a beautifully designed 431 steel body with a hollow body design to promote forgiveness without giving up the distance.

This iron’s hollow-body design makes it extremely forgiving. The thin face is precision-milled for high ball compression and spring effect leading to incredible ball speed, even on mishits.

Our take on Takomo Iron 101T

A lot of golfers want irons that won’t bust their wallet but don’t want to sacrifice on performance and looks. Takomo has been making really nice irons for a great price and the Iron 101T fills the popular players distance iron category. Right out of the box you can tell that Takomo put a lot of time into the looks, keeping them simple and attractive. The 101T has very little offset and a thinner topline for a multi piece iron.

On the course the 101T gives you distance, forgiveness, and a solid feel for a very attractive price. The 101T irons are long, offering a little extra distance without going to wildly strong lofts. The thin face not only offers distance, but it also creates a little larger sweet spot for when I am not hitting it in the dead center of the face. The irons launch a little flatter then the TaylorMade P770 but were still easy to get in the air and land softly on the green. Iron 101T are pretty forgiving for the size and imperfect strikes still fly far and online. The feel is solid and pretty soft. There is just a slight click at impact but overall the sound is very pleasant and muted. Turf interaction is good and the 101T don’t want to dig, even in the soft conditions or with steeper swings.

Overall, Takomo has made an iron that is worth looking into if you are considering a players distance iron. The price, quality, and performance of the Iron 101T are pretty amazing for the price.

    2 of the Good Good golf players on YouTube play the irons, and I haven’t seen them hit a decent shot yet with them.

    Too bad they don’t tell you that it takes weeks to get your clubs and that they don’t respond to emails from their customers. I waited 8 weeks to receive my order with no replies from them at all.

      But do you like the clubs though?

        They are ok. Not the best, not the worst.
        The quality of build is mediocre. Ferrules weren’t turned properly.

        I think the fact they don’t tell you that they are shipping stock sets from China is a bit misleading because I had to pay brokerage taxes and duties so the total cost ended up being significantly more than I originally paid.

          Wow. Thanks for this. I was seriously considering these (before even seeing this article) but all of what you said sounds horrendous.

Is Tony Finau’s Utah Jazz staff bag the coolest golf bag of all time?

Published

on

No hyperbole, Tony Finau’s Utah Jazz staff bag might be the coolest golf bag I’ve ever seen. Tiger Woods has had some classics through the years, especially when he was using the Buick bags. Plenty of brands have made awesome custom bags for major championships, too. John Daly’s recent Hooters bag comes to mind. And, of course, the fictional Al Czervik from Caddyshack had a legendary bag.

But Finau’s deep purple bag, with a custom “Finau 7” jersey stitch on the front and Utah Jazz logo on the side, might be a winner.

Finau, of course, was born in Utah, plus he was playing alongside former NBA player and Jazz executive Danny Ainge during the 2022 Hero World Challenge on Wednesday. Typically, Finau carries a Ping staff bag, but this was a special occasion.

According to Finau, he’ll be autographing and giving away the purple staff bag at next week’s Utah Jazz vs. Golden State Warriors game on Wednesday.

For more photos of the bag, check out the GolfWRX Forums here.
