  2. CLEVELAND GOLF INTRODUCES LAUNCHER XL HALO IRONS HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. – Aug. 18, 2021 – Cleveland Golf is proud to announce the all-new Launcher XL HALO Irons, hybrid-style super game improvement irons designed to make the game of golf more fun. The Launcher XL HALO Irons officially launch in North America on Aug. 20, 2021 for graphite irons and Sept. 17, 2021 for steel irons. “From head to grip, Launcher XL HALO Irons just make golf easier and more fun,” said Brian Schielke, General Manager at Cleveland Golf. “Most of us don’t have much confidence standing 170 yards out with a long iron in hand, and needing to carry a bunker to make the green. But with Launcher XL HALO, you’ll swing easier, feel confident, and be shocked at how forgiving they are. These irons will become your go-to clubs.” The foundation of these new irons is the XL Head design, which increases MOI for improved forgiveness and shots that launch high and find their target. In fact, the Launcher XL HALO Irons feature a 17% increase in MOI compared to the previous generation of hybrid-irons. For faster shots that travel far, we developed a new MainFrame iron face that harnesses the power of Artificial Intelligence to create the optimal club face for these irons. The variable thickness pattern maximizes COR and ball speed to help generate more distance than previous generations. Launcher XL HALO Irons help develop a better, consistent strike. Gliderails on the long irons deliver excellent turf interaction, while the mid-to-short irons feature our V-Shaped Sole to cut through the turf more effectively for cleaner contact. Meanwhile, a new 8g weight placed inside the end of every grip delivers better balance, control, and a smoother swing without extra effort to help square up the ball at impact. If precision is what is desired above all else, we’re offering a new Accuracy Build, a custom configuration that is half an inch shorter without counterbalancing to focus on maximum control. Key Innovations Inside the Launcher XL HALO Irons: XL Head Design: The Launcher XL HALO Irons feature our highest MOI ever in a Cleveland Golf hybrid-iron. It’s maximum distance with maximum fun. Rail to V-Shaped Sole Design: Gliderail in the long irons gradually transitions to a V-Shaped sole in the short irons and ultimately, a three-tiered sole on the Dual and Sand wedges. MainFrame: Designed using Artificial Intelligence, MainFrame variable face technology increases ball speed while unique weight pad designs ensure maximum forgiveness across the face. Action Mass CB: An 8g weight placed inside the end of the grip delivers better balance for more control without extra effort. HiBore Crown Step: The stepped crown shape brings the height of the crown down, dropping the center of gravity and raising your launch in the process. Loft Specific Grooves: The 4i-7i lofts have wider, flatter grooves, while the 8i-SW lofts have closely-spaced, deeper, and higher spinning wedge grooves. Retail Information and Pricing Pricing: 7-piece graphite set ($899.99); 7-piece steel set ($799.99) U.S. Retail Launch Date: August 20, 2021 (Graphite), September 17, 2021 (Steel)
  3. I did a fitting in March 2021 and got fit into Titleist T200 irons. I had previously been playing Titleist DCI 762 irons, so these were a massive upgrade. I received the irons in April and have played about 20 rounds since with them. The T200s are fantastic and work so well for me. My only complaint was that the 8-PW are different from the rest of the set. Starting at the 7 iron and into the long irons, the T200 has the Max Impact technology. The 8-PW have no Max Impact and I believe are simply hollow-bodied irons comparable to a Ping i500--please someone correct me if I am wrong. The feeling from the short irons is very dull, and every shot felt the same whether struck thin, solid, off the toe, or on the heel. After many rounds and range sessions, I was seeking an improved feel in these short irons. I did a lot of research about the best feeling clubs. Miura irons are known as the best in class for feel. So, long story short, I pulled the trigger on the Miura CB-301 in 7-PW. I ordered the Miuras strong to match lofts with the T200 and ensure my gapping remained the same. I just received the Miuras and played 2 rounds with them, so I felt I had compiled enough data for a comparison of the two. In terms of looks and size, the two are very similar in sole width and blade length from heel to toe. The main differences are the T200 is slightly shorter from heel to toe, is maybe a bit smaller with a shorter face, and the T200 are significantly lighter than the Miura. The Miura has a pre-worn leading edge and other grinding on the sole, but otherwise is just a forged cavity back with fairly strong lofts and no discernable technology. After all the comparisons in looks and weight, I finally decided it was time to give the fine pieces of metal a swing. The "hype" around Miura and their "legendary" feel is certainly warranted. These have that exact "soft" and "buttery" feeling you expect when you are getting a forged iron. Even the 2-piece range balls felt great. As a former baseball player, the best I can describe the feeling of hitting the Miura is like a hitting a high quality wood bad. You definitely get the feedback of mishits, but good shots feel like you are swinging the club and not even realizing you hit the ball aside from a gentle "thud" sound and little smooth vibration through the club as the ball melts into the sweetspot then rockets off at your target. I get it is not entirely apples-to-apples to compare a fully forged Miura to a technology-packed players' distance iron like the T200, so I also hit the Miura PW against my Mizuno T20 wedges. As Mizuno's saying goes "nothing feels like a Mizuno," so I also put that to the test. The T20 are fantastic feeling wedges and were the best feeling wedges I had tested during my fitting for the variety of wedge shots. However, compared to the Miura, the T20 felt a bit firmer. Where the ball felt like it melted into the Miura, the ball felt like it did not quite get into the face as much. I would put the feelings on a spectrum. The T200 are softer than the DCI 762, the T20 wedges are softer than the T200 irons, and the Miura are softer than the T20 wedges. Aside from being in love with the feeling, I also wanted to really see the performance differences between the Miuras and the T200s. My range recently installed TopTracer which measures distance, land angle, curve, ball speed, height, launch angle, and hang time. I am not sure how accurate it is compared to a launch monitor, but I am sure it provided a fair enough representation of the differences in the clubs. Side by side comparisons My observations of the data are that the Miura is equally as long or longer than the T200 in the 8-PW, but the Miura also went higher with a steeper landing angle. In terms of the 7 irons where the technology ramps up in the T200, the Miura was not significantly shorter in distance. In fact, I seem to think consistently hitting the Miuras around a comparable number is better than occasionally hitting a T200 over 165, but then also having the potential of only hitting it 150. I don't have a launch monitor to truly verify my findings, but despite a lack of technology within, I found the Miura to be comparable in distance and ball speed while feeling significantly better. Overall, I do think it comes down to preferences while also maximizing performance, which shows the benefits of fitting. I prefer a softer and more responsive feel in my short irons, and I found the best feeling clubs that also maintained the distances I got from my T200s. I am a very happy customer, and I will be hard pressed to find clubs that feel as good as my Miuras.
  4. TITLEIST INTRODUCES NEXT GENERATION T-SERIES IRONS New Material and Processes Power Advanced Precision, Exacting Performance and Unrivaled Feel CARLSBAD, Calif. (July 29, 2021) - Revolutionary changes in the evolution of the Titleist T-Series advances the company’s mission of producing the world’s best irons. Titleist has been the most played iron on the PGA Tour for 16 of the last 17 years, including each of the last seven seasons. Not only is Titleist on pace to extend its favored status on the PGA Tour, the T100 continues to be most played iron model by the world’s best since its tour introduction at the 2019 U.S. Open. The new T-Series iron family features new materials, processes and refinements that power exacting precision, performance and unmatched feel. The new T-Series irons includes four models – T100, T100•S, T200 and T300 – which will be available for fittings starting today and available in golf shops globally beginning August 26. “The new T-Series irons represent another step forward in Titleist iron design and technology,” said Josh Talge, Vice President, Titleist Golf Club Marketing. “With these new irons, across the board, every detail matters. They provide the best precision and performance in their respective iron category with stunning aesthetics and feel. Golfers don’t buy an iron ‘line’, they want specialization, and that’s what each of these models offer.” “T-Series irons are designed to provide precise control for any player who wants to score lower,” said Marni Ines, Director, Titleist Irons Development, Golf Club R&D. “From form to feel to function, every aspect of these irons is crafted towards the golfer being consistent from their first shot to their last throughout every round. Whether it is the T100, T100•S, T200 or T300, every iron is individually engineered to help the golfer deliver a strike where they can see and feel pure performance.” T100 | THE MODERN TOUR IRON For the better player who is looking for Precision Control and Unrivaled Feel The refinements found in the new T100 model are the product of continuous feedback from some of the best iron players in the game, including Jordan Spieth, Will Zalatoris, Sungjae Im, Cameron Smith, Garrick Higgo and Jessica Korda, among many others. It is the most played iron model on the PGA Tour for a reason – and with tour-validated improvements - now has even more reasons to stay on top. A ‘player’s iron,’ the new T100 offers more precise flighting and control, fully forged feel, a more versatile sole design, and plays like the commanding and consistent field favorite it is on tour. The T100 irons are designed with a new Tour-preferred brushed chrome finish. T100 | PERFORMANCE AND TECHNOLOGY New Tour-Designed Sole: By working with select tour professionals and in collaboration with the Vokey Design wedge team, Titleist engineers developed a new variable bounce design - less bounce in the heel and more bounce in the toe - that provides better turf interaction and improved feel. The design has been overwhelmingly validated by some of the world’s best ball strikers. Better Tungsten for Better Balance: Utilizing a denser version of tungsten (D18) weights in the heel and toe of the 3-7 irons for greater mass efficiency, and a brazing process used in aerospace construction, Titleist engineers were able to eliminate weld points and be even more precise with CG placement and produce high MOI in a ‘player’s iron.’ Refined for Greater Consistency: The new T100 face features a continuous cradle construction that creates a seamless striking surface and more uniform leading edge. A proven, fully forged, dual cavity supports the face construction. The 3 through 7-iron faces were redesigned to impart slightly more spin for improved shot-shaping and increased control. The 8-W are forged with one-piece 1025 carbon steel. QUOTING MARNI INES: “What sets these irons apart from the competition is the precision and feel they provide the golfer. Irons are scoring clubs and it is important to the T100 player to hit their number and hit it more consistently. With that as a priority, we took the best performing iron in the game and made it better by adding high density tungsten, which is the engine of our iron designs. It allows us to put the CG where it needs to be, provides stability and builds up MOI. The way this new T100 is engineered also allows us to keep that blade-like profile these golfers desire which is so important for confidence when looking down at their club.” T100 COMPONENTS AND SPECIFICATIONS T100 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 P W Loft 21 24 27 30 34 38 42 46 50 Lie 61 61.5 62 62.5 63 63.5 64 64 64 Offset 3.4 3.1 2.8 2.6 2.3 2.0 1.8 1.5 1.3 Length 39.00” 38.50” 38.00” 37.50” 37.00” 36.50” 36.00” 35.75” 35.50” STEEL FEATURED SHAFT: True Temper AMT Tour White Ascending Mass Technology: 3g per club (106-130g) Low launch, low spin GRAPHITE FEATURED SHAFT: MCA Tensei White AM2 Ascending Mass Technology: 2g per club (94-108g) Low launch, low spin GRIP: Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 with white paint fill and black flat cap PRICING: $186 MAP/club and $1,299 MAP/7-piece set (Steel) T100•S | THE FASTER TOUR IRON For the player who wants the exact look and feel of a Tour iron, but wants to hit it farther The T100•S now boasts an even closer connection to everything the world’s best players prefer in the T100 – only more. Featuring a fully forged feel, Tour-shaping, a more versatile sole design, and precise flighting – the new T100s is engineered with 2* stronger lofts and a new Muscle Channel that produces enhanced ball speed and launch while preserving precise touch, control and stopping power. It’s the Faster Tour iron. T100•S | PERFORMANCE AND TECHNOLOGY Same Tour Shape. Only Faster: The new T100•S head dimensions exactly match the specs of the T100, with the exception of being engineered – not bent – 2* stronger. The T100•S features the same fully forged face, backed by an innovative Muscle Channel that adds both speed and launch. At impact, the T100s feels amazingly similar to the T100 with the only difference being added distance. Better Tungsten for Better Performance: Utilizing denser D18 tungsten weights and a brazing process used in aerospace construction, the T100•S irons feature the same precise CG calibration as T100. Weight savings from the Muscle Channel are shifted to produce even lower CG and higher launch, resulting in outstanding MOI and increased ball speed from a solid, fully forged design. Refined for Greater Consistency: Like the T100, the new T100•S face features a continuous cradle construction that creates a seamless striking surface and more uniform leading edge. This small, but impactful shift, separates the precision of Titleist irons production from the competition. A proven, fully forged, dual cavity supports the face construction. The 3 through 7-iron faces were redesigned to impart slightly more spin for improved shot-shaping and increased control. The 8-W are forged with one-piece 1025 carbon steel. QUOTING MARNI INES: “The uniqueness of the T100•S comes from the fact that we engineered the 2* stronger loft into the iron rather than just bend them. The reason for this is to keep the integrity of the sole and optimize its performance through the turf. That would be lost by simply bending a T100. In addition, the ‘S’ represents ‘speed’ and the new Muscle Channel delivers it through the long and mid irons by providing longer distance, tighter dispersion and higher angle of descent for greater consistency and scoring opportunities. It has the same look and feel of the T100 but longer flight for those who want it.” T100•S COMPONENTS AND SPECIFICATIONS T100•S 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 P W Loft 19 22 25 28 32 36 40 44 48 Lie 61 61.5 62 62.5 63 63.5 64 64 64 Offset 3.4 3.1 2.8 2.6 2.3 2.0 1.8 1.5 1.3 Length 39.00” 38.50” 38.00” 37.50” 37.00” 36.50” 36.00” 35.75” 35.50” STEEL FEATURED SHAFT: Project X LZ Loading Zone Technology: Allows the player to load the shaft more for increased energy transfer while also getting a unique feel Low launch, low spin GRAPHITE FEATURED SHAFT: MCA Tensei White AM2 Ascending Mass Technology: 2g per club (94-108g) Low launch, low spin GRIP: Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 with white paint fill and black flat cap PRICING: $186 MAP/club and $1,299 MAP/7-piece set (Steel) T200 | THE TOUR’S DISTANCE IRON For the player who wants distance help, without sacrificing looks, forged feel, trajectory or stopping power The T200 iron evolution represents the biggest shift within the T-Series family. With 10 different patents utilized in the new T200, it is Titleist’s most advanced iron ever. Titleist Golf Club Research and Development took all the best of the previous generation T200, then streamlined the Max Impact technology, utilized denser tungsten weighting, and updated the shape with reduced offset, a thinner topline and shorter blade profile. The result is a sleek look with stunning distance. Every element of the multi-material construction is engineered to create maximum speed with Tour-validated feel and distance control. T200 | PERFORMANCE & TECHNOLOGY Power Packed Design: Every component of the multi-material hollow body construction contributes to the long, consistent distance of the T200. The improved Max Impact Technology (Max Impact 2.0) now includes a core support design and an enhanced high resilience polymer core that improves both off-center speed and mass efficiency at impact across a forged, high COR SUP-10 L-Face Insert. Multi-Material Body: An engineered muscle plate contributes to precision sound tuning and saves weight which is optimized in the new, streamlined 17-4 chassis. A shorter blade length, less offset (same as T100), narrower topline and thinner sole, provides a tour-inspired look and feel while delivering maximum speed and distance. Better Tungsten for Better Progression: Utilizing denser D18 tungsten weights in the 3-7 irons for greater mass efficiency, and a brazing process used in aerospace construction, Titleist engineers were able to position the CG more precisely for maximum benefit in every club – from fast, forgiving, high launching long and mid irons to accurate, precise short irons. QUOTING MARNI INES: “Many golfers want the benefit of advanced technology in an iron – and the T200 is our most advanced iron yet - but they don’t necessarily want to see it. All of that ‘Max Impact’ technology - and more - is now ‘under the hood’ in the new T200, so it looks and feels like a Tour-played iron but has the game improvement qualities preferred or required by this golfer. With the evolution of Max Impact, we were able to include an Engineered Muscle Plate that allowed us to free up weight and add lightweight polymer and over 100g of high-density tungsten to the design. The result was extremely high MOI properties at Tour inspired blade lengths which allows the iron face to return more energy to the golf ball on off center shots and produce tighter dispersion and more consistent distance.” T200 COMPONENTS AND SPECIFICATIONS T200 4 5 6 7 8 9 P W Loft 22 25 28 31 35 39 43 48 Lie 61.5 62 62.5 63 63.5 64 64 64 Offset 3.1 2.8 2.6 2.3 2.0 1.8 1.5 1.3 Length 38.50” 38.00” 37.50” 37.00” 36.50” 36.00” 35.75” 35.50” STEEL FEATURED SHAFT: True Temper AMT Black Ascending Mass Technology: 3g per club (95-116g) Mid launch, mid spin GRAPHITE FEATURED SHAFT: MCA Tensei Blue AM2 Ascending Mass Technology: 2g per club (74-88g) Mid launch, mid spin GRIP: Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 with white paint fill and black flat cap PRICING: $186 MAP/club and $1,299 MAP/7-piece set (Steel) T300 | THE ULTIMATE GAME IMPROVEMENT IRON For the player who wants high launch, long distance, and forgiveness they can count on The player’s game improvement iron, the new T300 continues to be powered by updated Max Impact technology that maximizes speed across a new variable face thickness (VFT) design. The extremely forgiving mid-sized, fast, cavity-back design includes a 40 percent increase in tungsten that improves CG placement for optimal launch, spin and high MOI. The size and shape of the T300 is designed to provide confidence, while a new chrome plated finish provides a premium look. T300 | PERFORMANCE & TECHNOLOGY Muscle Under the Hood: Locked behind the T300 badge lies a hidden power source - Max Impact 2.0. A Cantilever Core Support Structure features a new high resilience polymer core, delivering maximum speed and distance control. Better Tungsten for Better Performance: The high-density tungsten (D18) weights are utilized in the heel and toe of the 4-7 irons for greater mass efficiency. In addition, Titleist engineers were able to add 40 percent more tungsten than was in the previous generation T300 through a brazing process applied from aerospace construction usually reserved for Tour-played irons. This contributes to a solid-feeling, advanced design that produces the optimal balance of launch, distance and forgiveness. Thinner Where it Counts: The T300 now employs a High COR Variable Face Design that is thinner towards the heel in the long and mid irons to improve performance at what is traditionally one of the least effective strike points. QUOTING JOSH TALGE: “The T300 is the ultimate Titleist game improvement iron. It is for the golfer who wants high launch, long distance and forgiveness, and wants to see the technology they are using. This model utilizes the Max Impact 2.0 technology which is featured in a sleek, clean package at address for which Titleist irons are known. The design team retained the offset, shape and size, but was able to add 40 percent more tungsten to this iron, precisely lower the CG and meet the performance needs of this golfer.” T300 COMPONENTS AND SPECIFICATIONS T300 4 5 6 7 8 9 P W48 W53 Loft 20 23 26 29 33 38 43 48 53 Lie 61.5 62 62.5 63 63.5 64 64 64 64 Offset 5.4 4.7 4.2 3.7 3.2 2.7 2.2 1.9 1.9 Length 38.50 38.00 37.50 37.00 36.50 36.00 35.75 35.50 35.50 STEEL FEATURED SHAFT: True Temper AMT Red Ascending Mass Technology: 3g per club (95-107g) High launch, high spin GRAPHITE FEATURED SHAFT: MCA Tensei Red AM2 Ascending Mass Technology: 2g per club (54-68g) High launch, high spin GRIP: Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 with white paint fill and black flat cap PRICING: $143 MAP/club and $999 MAP/7-piece set (Steel) T-SERIES ON TOUR: Many of the world’s best players – including Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Cam Smith, Garrick Higgo and Jessica Korda – have added new T-Series irons to their bags since the new models debuted on tour in late June: • Jordan Spieth put a full set of new T100’s (4-9) immediately in play at the Open Championship, his first start after the new models were introduced on tour. He promptly opened with a 5-under par 65 en route to four consecutive rounds in the 60’s and a runner-up finish. Quoting Spieth: “The sole just glides through the ground so nicely. With the added bounce off the toe and the reduced bounce in the heel similar to the wedges that we have on those grinds, it just allows for some consistency when you get a little bit off. The idea that you can be on uneven lies and have it kind of make up for that, and then if you get in the rough and have it not drag as much, but instead slide through just as easily, that’s where we see the improvement in these irons.” “I don’t understand why you’d play any other iron to be honest. I joke around, ‘I’m not good enough to play the blades,’ but in reality, I think we’re just being smarter. I think we’re just like, ‘Oh, we can actually hit every shot that a blade can hit.’ But that chance that we mishit them – which we’re going to mishit a few shots in a round, even in a great round, the idea that it does carry that bunker and you make birdie on a hole where someone has to get up and down for par – I mean, it could be the difference in a tournament.” • Spieth, Justin Thomas, Charley Hoffman, Garrick Higgo, Adam Scott and Bernd Wiesberger were among several players who also added new T200 2-irons to their bag at Royal St. George’s. • Jessica Korda was one of the first players to hit final T-Series prototypes during a trip to the Titleist Performance Institute in early 2021. She put her new T200 4-iron and T100 (5-9) irons right in the bag at the LPGA’s Marathon Classic. Quoting Jessica Korda: “They’re just really pure. It’s like I’m hitting blades, but you’re not. I loved how solid they felt. The height on them is incredible. It’s exactly what I’m looking for, especially in the longer irons. “The consistency is what I look for. Because when I’m standing over the ball and I need this thing to travel a number that I have in my head, and I can rely on that and just be like, just make a good swing, it takes so much of the guesswork out of it and it makes you commit to the shot more. I don't change often. It has to beat what I have, and this is really nice. To be even better, to help me hold greens like I need to with the longer irons, especially going into par fives, it's really, really nice.” T-SERIES FITTINGS: Titleist believes in a holistic approach to its irons which includes three key dimensions: Distance, Dispersion and Angle of Descent. Every T-Series iron is designed for maximum performance in these the (3) areas. An authorized Titleist fitter will help the golfer find the combination of T-Series models to unlock their ability to hit the golf ball longer and closer to the pin.

  5. TAYLORMADE GOLF COMPANY INTRODUCES ALL-NEW P·790 IRONS, BUILDING ON THE ACCLAIMED FRANCHISE OF PLAYER’S DISTANCE IRONS Combining the Newly Engineered SpeedFoam™ Air with an Intelligent Sweet Spot to Help Golfers Obtain New Levels of Power and Performance CARLSBAD, Calif. (August 10, 2021) – Following the resounding global success of one of the best-selling iron franchises in company history, TaylorMade Golf, an industry leader in product innovation, technology and performance, today announces the third generation of the P·790 irons. A pioneer in the player's distance iron category, P·790 are built on a foundation of performance and elegance. Delivering power, distance and feel in a package that appeals to a wide range of players. To tackle the task of improving one of the most successful irons in recent history, engineers began by redeveloping the technology that sits at the center of it all. The all-new SpeedFoam Air, an ultralight urethane foam inside the forged hollow body construction, is 69% less dense than the prior generation. In a world where minor adjustments can lead to major results, the switch to SpeedFoam Air accounts for significant weight savings – an average of 3.5g in respective irons. The change allows for a substantial redistribution of mass to lower CG placement and improved launch properties. Furthermore, it unlocked access to the thinnest face in P·790 history and allowed for the creation of an intelligent sweet spot. P·790 iron heads are crafted from an 8620 carbon steel that maintains strength and durability while allowing for a new thin-walled design – adding to the overall weight-saving benefits of SpeedFoam Air. This reengineered Forged Hollow Body Construction pairs with a responsive 1.5mm forged 4140 steel L-Face to promote supreme flexibility, fast ball speeds and distance while upholding a premium forged feel. The company's iron development team charted data from thousands upon thousands of golf shots and determined the most common impact points on the iron face. Utilizing this data, engineers strategically shaped and positioned the sweet spot to capture more of those shots. Results include measurable upticks in ball speed and distance compared to the prior generation. Overall, the sweet spot has been better aligned with center face to naturally provide performance where golfers need it the most. The 2021 P·790 contains much of the DNA that has made this a dynamic iron franchise for more than five years. Heavy tungsten weighting, up to 31g in an individual iron head, is strategically positioned to deliver both stability and forgiveness. The patented Thru-Slot Speed Pocket™ continues to provide increased face flexibility while preserving ball speed and distance on low face strikes. Clean and classic aesthetics complete the look of this artfully designed iron. Symmetrical lines and traditional shaping create a look that's cohesive with the full P·700 Series – making P·790 the ideal pairing for combo sets with P·770, P·7MC and even P·7MB in some cases. P·790 UDI Complementing the P·790 irons is the P·790 UDI, a forged driving iron designed with Tour-inspired shaping and incorporating proven TaylorMade technologies such as the Thru-Slot Speed Pocket™ and Forged Hollow Body Construction with a new thin-walled design. Like the other irons in the set, the P·790 UDI is powered by the all-new SpeedFoam™ Air and is constructed of a soft, 8620 carbon steel body combined with a high strength forged 4140 carbon steel face. It features the same intelligent sweet spot that positions performance precisely where golfers need it the most. The head design promotes low spin shots with a piercing trajectory and is built for golfers who want control without sacrificing distance.

  6. What is your go to drill when you feel like your ball striking is off? I am new to the game and I want to know what drills the fine folks here in the forum find themselves coming back to when trying to dial in that crisp downward ball then turf angle of attack iron shot? One I have heard of recently that seems like great real vs feel feedback as well is spraying foot powder or dry shampoo on the club face to show where the ball was impacted low/high/heel/toe. What products have you found to perform this task well?
  7. My WITB Setup Driver: TaylorMade SIM Max 9.5 Woods: TaylorMade Rbz Stage2 15° 3W(Next Upgrade) Iron Set: TaylorMade Aeroburner HL 4-PW, AW, SW Wedges: Cleveland RTX Zipcore 52° & Cleveland RTX3 CB 60° Putter: TaylorMade Spider X Hydroblast Planning on upgrading my 3W after spacing out my wedges with Cleveland RTX Zipcore 48° & 56°. No need for 5W or 3H since the one I had was same loft as 4 iron. I'm one of those people that hits irons much better than woods and hybrids. My wedges will be lofted at degrees of 43.5, 48, 52, 56, & 60 after i replace Aeroburner HL AW & SW. Thanks for stopping by to see what's in my bag!!
  8. The set up T100s: 7-48* T200: 4,5,6 Project X LZ 6.5 (x-flex) 125g 2* upright Tour velvet. T100s (7,8,9,P,G) I was first drawn to the T100s because these irons look so freaking clean. I had no intention of buying a set, I just wanted to try and hit a club that I thought was out of my league. What I found however, was a relatively forgiving and extremely fun to hit set. To clarify, when I say forgiving, I don't mean your miss hits will be knocking down flags, and I don't mean your chunked shots will still be pin high. What I DO mean, is that if you catch it a little thin, or a bit on the toe, you're still gonna be in the hole. You may have to make a long putt or get up and down to save par, but you'll still be in play. its forgiving for the type of iron that it is. what I like most about these irons is the distance control. The speed feels consistent across the face (gross miss hits not included) and i have yet to have a ball rocket over the green because a particularly "hot" part of the club face. I was also impressed with how well the club moved through the turf, especially coming from a much wider soled set (jpx 825) If i had to nitpick the only compliant I have is that the pw and gw are 44 and 48, respecticly. I would have preferred 45 and 50. And i know the t100 is close to that, and I know I can bend them, but then we are messing the bounce, yadda yadda yadda. Final though on the T100s, they feel and look great, and if you are stuck between GI and players iron, I would suggest at the very least giving the T100s a few swings. T200 (4,5,6) The decision to use the T200 for the longer irons was a result of having a frank discussion with myself about my own skill level. The heads are a little bigger, soles wider, and they resist face manipulation a bit more. Couple that with stronger lofts and a hotter face and they fit the bill for what i need in my longer irons. Having never gamed the t200 short irons I can only speculate, but I don't know if I'd like the hotter face in my short irons. I did try the t200 and t100 7 irons back to back, and the extra pop from the T200 is very noticeable. The T200 also made painful noise on miss-hits, but its a small price to pay for keeping it in play. The Combo Set I am a huge fan of the split set, and am glad I went this route. There is no reason to have irons in your bag that you don't feel confident with. For me this meant using longer irons I know will launch high enough and straight enough, and shorter irons that are consistent and predictable. closing I think the T100s and the T200 are solid clubs, and i would recommend trying them if you are in the market for new irons.

    New irons!

    After 12 years of my current set (Ping S57’s) I’ve finally taken the plunge and ordered a new set of custom fit Mizuno irons. After a few sessions, which involved taking a couple of different options out onto the course, I’ve placed my order for a set - 4 to PW of Mizuno MP20 irons. I’ve gone for a combo set with MP20 HMB 4 & 5 irons and MP20 MMC in the 6 to PW. KBS C Taper Lite stiff shafts, 1” longer than standard, bent 2 degrees upright and 2 degrees weaker than standard. It’s taken a few fittings to get to this final spec and I want to thank my local pro for being (very) patient with me and my plethora of questions. So. The order is in. Now I’ve just go to wait 4 to 8 weeks (maybe) for them to arrive

  13. Up for sale is a set of Wishon EQ1-NX single length irons. The set includes 5 iron through GW for a total of 7 clubs. All irons are built to a 37" playing length with the same length of shaft, headweights, lie angle, etc unlike the Cobra's. All clubs are standard loft and standard lie angle. Swing weight is D2. All irons are shafted with premium True Temper Dynamic Gold S300 (stiff) steel shafts and have Sensicore type inserts for vibration dampening and shock absorption. Grips are standard size Golf Pride Tour Velvet ribbed grips. The irons are in excellent condition and have only been hit at the driving range and only played outside on a course for 3 rounds. These are premium quality clubs designed by the best club designer in the business, Tom Wishon! These are by far the best single length clubs that you can buy as they gap perfectly. The irons are difficult to source and even more difficult to find second hand. Online each club retails for about $140/each when built. SOLD More Info: Wishon’s new single length iron design concept EQ1-NX offers same length and high COR low loft iron characteristics while adding many new performance enhancing features to mark a definite step forward in game improvement iron design. Features: Enabled by the new 2-piece hollow body design, the Center of Gravity moves progressively through the set from lowest and most rear located on the #5 iron to highest and most forward located on the GW and SW to achieve more consistent shot shape and shot height for each iron in the set The hollow body design throughout the set increases the MOI of each head by removing all mass from the inside of the head to be distributed all around the CG. The hollow body construction also enables the CG progression and uniform impact sound between the high COR and conventional COR heads in the set Low number irons are better matched with their loft to CG position to achieve preferred shot shape/height and allow a wider range of players to be able to effectively hit the #5 and 6 irons to fly and carry with proper distance gaps Traditional GW and SW profile shapes are combined with milled faces and a custom sole grind make the wedges a great choice even if they were standalone wedges and not part of the single length design
  14. COBRA® GOLF UNVEILS THE COPPER SERIES PLAYERS IRONS TO SATISFY THE MOST DEMANDING SHOTMAKERS KING RF Forged MB, KING Tour, and KING Forged TEC Irons Will be Available In a Striking Copper Finish Carlsbad, Calif. (March 3, 2021) – COBRA® Golf, a leader in golf club innovation, today unveiled its KING Copper Iron Series, introducing a stunning new copper finish, inspired by Rickie Fowler, in its popular player’s irons. The family debuts a new addition to its player’s iron lineup with the KING RF Forged MB, and a new copper finish in the KING Tour, and the KING Forged TEC irons. The new copper versions offer the same performance technologies as the chrome models in a premium copper finish that is sure to turn heads on the course. The KING RF FORGED MB COPPER IRONS ($1,399) are an evolution of the limited-edition RF Proto Irons introduced earlier this year. The irons continue to feature a special “RF,” logo on the toe to indicate Rickie’s involvement in the shaping, design and choice of finish. Each clubhead in the set is forged five times out of 1025 carbon steel to deliver the softest feel desired by the best players. Each face and groove is CNC milled to maximize trajectory and spin control. Like Rickie’s gamers, the irons are fitted with a tungsten toe weight to optimally position the CG behind the sweet spot for the purest feel with enhanced stability. The rich copper finish paired with Rickie’s signature shape delivers an impressive package designed for highly skilled players. The KING RF Forged MB irons are available in 4-PW in copper, RH only, with KBS C-Taper 120 steel shafts, and Lamkin Crossline Connect grips. For shot makers who want the ultimate in feel, precision and forgiveness in a player’s cavity back shape, the KING TOUR COPPER IRONS ($1,399) are the ticket. Manufactured using Metal Injection Molding (MIM) for precise shaping and exceptionally soft feel, each clubhead is also fitted with a Tungsten toe weight to center the CG behind the hitting zone for pure shots with added stability on off-center hits. The soft MIM material, combined with a TPU insert (thermoplastic polyurethane) positioned behind the clubface, damps vibrations for a soft yet solid feel at impact that rivals traditional forged irons, even though they are actually MIM’d. The rich new copper finish sets these sticks apart from a visual standpoint. The KING TOUR Copper Irons are available in 4-PW in RH & LH (3-iron and GW available through custom) with KBS $-Taper 120 steel shafts and Lamkin Crossline Connect grips. For those who prefer the classic chrome finish, the irons are still available in both RH and now LH as well. Better players who put a premium on distance while still desiring the precision and feel of a compact iron shape, should look at the new KING FORGED TEC COPPER IRONS ($1,199). The design combines a fully hollow construction into a shape that resembles a classic muscleback that appeals to better players. The hollow core is infused with foam microspheres to yield a soft feel and fine-tuned acoustics throughout the set. To add to the distance-enhancing technologies, a forged PWRSHELL face insert maximizes launch and speed across the face and on the sole. An internal tungsten toe weight improves stability on off-center toe hits and centers the CG resulting in precision with forgiveness. The KING Forged TEC Copper Irons are available in variable length only, 4-PW (3-iron and GW available through custom order) in RH and LH with the stock shaft offering as the KBS $-Taper Lite steel. For a graphite offering, the Project X Catalyst 80 (X, S), and 60 (R) is the recommended option available in custom. Lamkin Crossline Connect grips come standard. The chrome versions of the Forged TEC irons are still available in both Variable and ONE Length in RH and LH. All three sets of irons come equipped COBRA CONNECT Smart Grips giving players access to in-depth shot-tracking data. Download the Arccos Caddie app on your smart device to pair your clubs and unlock your 90-day free trial to Arccos Caddie. All three sets of copper irons will be available at cobragolf.com and at retail on March 12, 2021.
  15. Hello forum members. I wonder if you can help me with an iron issue. I got a new set of AP-3 irons two years ago and (believe it or not) just realized the swingweight feels way too light - no head feel compared to a couple of friends' irons - Mizuno EZ/graphite and Srixon 565/steel. I know it's not precise, but using an online tool and carefully weighing and measuring my irons I came up with a consistent swingweight of C8 for them; the Titleist website indicates they should be D2 (not specified iron or graphite). My shafts are Mitsubishi Tensei CK red. I know some other iron manufacturers state a one-number lower swingweight for graphite versus iron shafts in their clubs. My question is what should I do in terms of changing the grips (currently GolfPride Tour Velvet 360 Midsize, 53.5 grams) to get my irons to a swingweight of D1 at least? One option I have read is change to lighter grips - have heard that each 4-5 gm lighter grip changes the swingweight one point. I plan to change to standard size grips with one or two wraps of tape. Your suggestions are appreciated.
  16. As a kid my first set of irons was a used set of Founders club iron's. I haven't thought about the company in years, I had thought they went out of business. maybe they did i'm not sure but i searched them and to my suprise they are still making clubs and the MB forged irons are beautiful. has anyone hit them?
  17. COBRA GOLF LAUNCHES LIMITED EDITION RICKIE FOWLER PROTO IRONS Carlsbad, Calif. (January 25, 2021) – COBRA® Golf, a leader in golf club innovation, unveiled today its highly anticipated, limited-edition COBRA RF Proto Irons, a design collaboration with longtime COBRA ambassador and five-time PGA TOUR winner, Rickie Fowler. The RF Proto Irons are a replica of the head design that Fowler plays to provide golfers with an opportunity to experience what it feels like to play the same tour-caliber irons trusted weekly by one of game’s most popular players. The design is the result of multiple shape and spec revisions that evolved over the span of 12 months to get the perfect iron. The process involved COBRA engineers and longtime Director of Tour Operations, Ben Schomin, working with Fowler every step of the way, applying his design direction, turf-interaction feedback and aesthetic preferences to the overall design, which underwent 32 iterations before arriving at the final version, hence the Rev33 stamp. Interestingly, the entire set is designed around a 7-iron appearance, Fowler’s favorite iron shape. Atypical of most iron sets, which feature progressively rounded edges as you transition from the long irons to short irons, each RF Proto iron (4-PW) is designed with distinct sharp edges on the toe and topline area to suit Fowler’s eyes. They also deliver zero visible offset by ensuring that the hosel was developed with no taper. Perhaps the most striking feature of these irons is their distinctive, head-turning copper finish that was hand selected by Fowler after considering dozens of finishes. “We have been working with Rickie on these irons for quite some time, and we feel they represent a fitting tribute to our decade long partnership,” said Schomin. “We worked closely with Rickie to determine his favorite features of several of his previous sets that we were able to combine into one very sleek package. These are a must-own for better players who appreciate the finest of iron craftmanship or Rickie fans who would jump at the opportunity to own the same sticks their favorite player uses.” Like any Tour Player, Fowler demands perfection when it comes to shaping. With the RF Proto irons, COBRA delivers the ultimate precision iron, fit for a Tour player or better golfers. Each iron is forged two times from a soft 1025 carbon steel and is then machined using a 100% CNC milling process. The entire milling process takes a total of 155 minutes per iron and produces the most precise shape and specs without any inconsistencies. Like Fowler’s gamers, this CNC milling process is used to deliver the most exact specifications and shape that Fowler designed. To aid in pure shot making and offer some added stability, the RF Proto Irons, like his gamers, utilize a tungsten weight that is positioned out on the toe to better center the CG, per Fowler’s request. The result is an iron that delivers superior feel and precision throughout the set. For the collectors, the limited-edition RF Proto Irons are shipped in a high-end, custom box, which celebrates the partnership between Fowler and COBRA, complete with a card of authenticity, stamped by R&D and autographed by Rickie Fowler, for an unboxing experience like never before. The standard offering features KBS C-Taper shafts and Golf Pride Tour Velvet ALIGN grips equipped with COBRA CONNECT. A full selection of custom shafts and grips are also available. The standard set features 4-PW and retails for $2,499. Available in RH only. Beginning today they are available for pre-order through cobragolf.com and will begin shipping and be available at retail on Friday, January 29, 2021. For more information on the RF Proto Irons and all of COBRA’s products, visit www.cobragolf.com.
  18. Hey I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions on a X flex graphite iron shaft? I'm looking at getting something a little softer on my wrists (have a few issues going on there). Wondering what success anyone has had with graphites in a top end players club ie. Mizuno Mp20 etc. Looking forward to hearing from you all
  19. I golfed with a gentleman today who claimed that golf shafts "wear out" and need to be replaced every 4 years (assuming 50 rounds per year). Can anyone (equipment junkies, club builders, club fitters, etc.) please chime in with your thoughts on this? Is this a valid claim?
  20. NEW, never used, in the plastic, Taylormade SIM Max Irons 4-PW, stiff flex steel KBS stock shaft, standard length and loft, Lamkin regular grips $750 + shipping. I'll ship these next day vs. waiting the month+ that Taylormade is making so it's a great holiday gift! I put in the order for these from Taylormade through my club before I started playing every day and got a simulator. By the time they arrived a month later I was already wanting p770s (which I am currently waiting another month for since TM is so backed up right now). Message me with any questions or if you want any additional photos of anything. Thanks!
  21. Been on the forum for a bit now, just wanted to talk about what’s in my bag and what everyone else has working (or not working) for them. I have just recently changed drivers, that being the Taylormade SIM Max 10.5 degree. I took the shaft (HZRDUS 6.0 76g with the yellow writing, not the smoke) from my PING G30 and had the new tip installed because I absolutely love it and they are harder to find now for some reason. Aside from that, I have had the same clubs In the bag for roughly 3-4 years now. As mentioned, I have the new sim driver, ping g30 3 wood and 3 hybrid (both stock stiff shaft), Mizuno MP59 irons with KBS tour 120 stiff shafts, Vokey SM5 wedges (50,56,60), scotty Cameron select Newport blade from 2015. I usually play a taylormade TP5 but I will hit whatever is in the bag. I have hit ProV1’s, Srixon soft feel, Bridgestone b330, pinnacle soft (laugh it up), and almost anything out of the weeds that will fly and roll (ha). I was fitted for my irons and I absolutely love them. Great feel, lofts are not too aggressive or passive, can work the ball (to the best of my ability) with them, and they sound magical (for me sound is psychologically either a confidence boost or bust). My irons have come light years from where they were prior to being fitted so I would absolutely recommend letting someone who knows what they’re doing fit you for irons. And most people will say “I would not suggest a blade and I would bet you’re not good enough to play them). Well it’s more of a MB and I swear the smaller an iron you can hit, the more you will rely on your striking ability and skill than just hoping the club will help you out because you know you’re going to mis hit it. Don’t get me wrong, game improvement absolutely has a place but if you can convince yourself to just try more of a players type club you will not be disappointed. Even my dad who is around a +11-12 handicapper hit my 7 iron several times on the range and said “wow, that feels amazing and it gives way more feedback than my irons. So irons are kind of a personal thing but I would definitely recommend getting fit. It’s like wearing shoes that fit and walking all day as opposed to borrowing a size too big or small and trying to make them work. Anyway, on to the next. I absolutely love the new driver, I was fitted for my PING and my dad actually purchased the sim prior to me getting it. The sound of that thing was magical and I loved the look. Not swapping shafts I kind of gambled and just went with the same degree and the max instead of the regular sim. I don’t work the ball a ton with a driver so the added forgiveness was more appealing to me because realistically the number differences were nominal when I hit them in the pro shop. It was a good gamble, I consistently hit the ball straighter as compared to the ping and we all know keeping the ball in the fairway will lower your score quicker than anything. My spin was slightly lower with the sim than the ping and that also adds to the straighter flight I’m sure. And I assume the twistface has helped my mishits. Could be wrong, but it seems that way. I usually carry the driver around 265-270 and on a good striking day maybe a little further. No superhero drives usually. Lol. If I could hit it straight and 250 every time and I would sell my soul. Wedges are as I said the sm5 vokey wedges (50,56,60) and I know most of you will rip me for playing a 50 instead of a 52 to keep my gapping more consistent. But hey, it works for me using a controlled swing and a knockdown swing with the 50 and then being able to nip the 56 and 60 closer to the greens to give me a little more control. Bunker shots I usually go for the 56 just so I don’t have to really swing for the fence but if I’m short sided or want it to stop a little faster I will use the 60. I love them but this is one reason I’m posting this, I want to know what everyone hits that works!! Putter, Scotty, and I firmly believe everyone is different when it comes to a putter so I’m not making any suggestions or comments on what putter because I believe you should use what works for you and what you feel comfortable with. let’s hear what you guys like or dislike in my bag and what’s in your bag that I need to have a look at!! Q
  22. Hi, I just wanted to share my experience with cold bluing my wedges. The pictures on the left were the wedges after being soaked in coke overnight and rubbed with a steel whool. I used birchwood casey's bluing kit to blue my wedges and they turned out amazing! So if anyone was wondering if they could do this themselves, well, you absolutely can ;).
  23. So I recently had 2 fittings: T100 Pw-6 + T200 5-4 w/ px 6.0 T100S Pw-4 w/ px 6.0 + 50* SM8 w/ px 6.0 The T100 5-4 irons are the same lofts as the T200 6-5 irons. Would the T200 6-5 irons 0.50" longer fit the gap better than the T200 5-4 bent? Obviously it would be so weird having two 6 irons but I am just curious if anyone has tested this at all? Or would bending the T200 5-4 irons be a better option? Another option would obviously be to just go with the stronger lofted T100S so that the T200 fits in easier or just go full T100S, I just don't need to hit it any further and I would have to re gap my wedges. Thoughts? note: Currently playing R9 TP irons which are 1* weaker than the regular t100's. R9 TP also has more forgiving 5-4 irons which is why I kind of like the idea of getting T200 in my 5-4.
  24. So I am a pretty high handicapper, i play to about a 15. However, I like the look of more traditional irons. I would say my irons aren't really the issue with my game and I hit them relatively consistent and far (7 iron goes 175-180) but I play game improvement irons with strong lofts. Any suggestions for irons that aren't super blocky but still offer a little forgiveness?
  25. Shankster and PING Blueprint Irons---A Match Made in Heaven? Every so often we do a special review of a club on MGS. Usually it's when the OEM provides us with one set or one driver etc for review, it's not practical to open it up to over 500 to 1,000 applications and pick just one person. So when the Blueprint review was generously offered by PING with the stipulation it went to a member who was a true low single digit handicap, we discussed as a group who would be an ideal member to reach out to test these beauties. Honestly at least half a dozen names came to mind, but some of them were already involved in a testing or had just completed one. Then one name really jumped out at us, Shankster. Not just because he fit the handicap requirement, but if there is any one person on this site who is a more of a traditionalist and prefers the minimalist design in a club than Alan, we don't know who it is. When we reached out to Shankster, it took him about 1 minute to say yes, and that's only because he was recovering from the shock of being asked and making sure he wasn't being punked! We had to work through the timing of his move from Michigan to Maryland, but all that got sorted out. Not knowing exactly when today he'll get his post up, I'll leave you with a few of these.
