What an amazingly aweful looking golf club! Congrats to Titleist for ugliest club of the year to date. Its going to be hard for someone else to beat that, it looks like they stole this from the Callaway game improvement iron scrap pile!

Horrible looking irons. The AP1's are forgiving enough and these just look like a peice of SGI crap that Callaway would put out.

Well I definitely don't have the strong reaction that others have shown. Do I like the looks and would I play it, no. I much prefer the sleek lines of blades, but obviously these clubs weren't made with me in mind. For some people, a big game improvement iron from Titleist might be a welcome addition.

To me it was kind of looking like WILSON Golf's GI offering with the black plastic and angle cuts in the cavity. Personally doesn't really matter as I will never play anything that's not a blade of blade like in apperance. This is for the 25-50 handicappers.

Now we know why they sold Cobra. They are expanding their own product range to the higher handicappers.

Ugly clubs. Maybe even uglier then the AP's, have to wait and see in real life.

I agree completely. I think that Titleist is smart to expand their product into the largest golfing demographic available today..........game improvement. Definitely not the sleek and traditional appearance of a titleist club......but it's no worse than some of the gaudy SGI clubs that Callaway and TM put out.

It will be interesting to see how this works out for Titleist. I've always percieved them to be a kind of no-nonsense "player's club" and I think they've intentionally fostered that image. Now they have been making irons for the mid-handicapper for a while with the AP series, but even so, those were imo still marketed as player's clubs. That image is not going to be easy to maintain with these new sticks. Beyond thier ugliness, I don't see how they fit into Titleist.

It looks like something they used to give to Cobra to market to the mid-high handicappers

 

I thought I was looking at a Cobra club too. IMO, looks like all the other clubs on the market. I am curious to find out how these play.

As someone who should be swinging the more shovel-type iron, I'd check them out. The cavity could be pink if it helps me get shot on target. IMO, of course.

Agreed!

 

Also, what's with the Cobra hate? They make some pretty snazzy stuff (espcially for those of us in the game improvment wanting category), espcially in the last year.

Very, very ugly. Plain Jane of players irons. I thought the Ping and Callaway lines overused decals in the cavity, their implementation although not my cup of tea look better. Perhaps the brand name with get them through.
