Titleist Concept Irons

Recommended Posts

For many years, the Titleist blade model was called "the Titleist Tour Model."

 

Wilson Staff.

MacGregor Tourney.

Spalding Top Flite.

PowerBilt Citation

Titleist Tour Model.

 

Then the marketing people who did serious hallucinogens in college all got hired.

Lol - have they got something against vowels?

To be honest, if you took away the script on the hosel, I would have guessed it was something from Nike (when they were still making weird clubs) or our wacky friends at Tmag

Is it bad that I read all of your posts in the voice of Grandpa Simpson?

 

We can't bust heads like we used to, but we have our ways. One trick is to tell 'em stories that don't go anywhere - like the time I caught the ferry over to Shelbyville. I needed a new heel for my shoe, so, I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on 'em. Give me five bees for a quarter, you'd say.

 

Now where were we? Oh yeah: the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn't have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

Was definitely going to say the same thing - if it didn't say Titleist I would have thought it was an old nike Prototype

I actually like the look. Kind of futuristic. Will be keeping an eye out for more info on where it would slot in its current lineup.

Really like the look of it. Has to be some kind of hollow iron with some tech on the inside right?

 

Seems a shame if it is just a new style of blade/MB. Not sure you should call it a new concept if it us just a new design on the back of a blade.

 

New T-MB design?

I was thinking this too. It was not so long ago they had the C4 concept made from multi-materials which was a bit more ground breaking. Fast forward to now and this "concept" looks like a mixture of AP1, AP2,  AP3 & T-MB - or everything in their current range. It looks like a hollow cavity design as well, which seems to be de rigeur at the moment - only the tech goo inside gets a name change between each OEM. "Power Gel" anyone?

You're not my target audience, jlukes.

I am.  That's what venting is all about.

 

See the beagle, skip the post..

That should give Grandpa Simpson a rest

Looks cool. The “Cncpt” font is a bit too futurist for me but the head shape and milling look cool.

I like the look. Ping's clean irons lately have me really liking the minimalist designs.

If they ain't a solid forged piece of metal they are stupid.

 

This is a perfect “modern” blade looking club. Ditch the CNCPT, just leave Titleist on the hosel, no offset, thin top line... perfect club.

Something about the Titleist writing and hosel leading into the head throws me. Maybe it is as though it goes from traditional Titleist writing to the very futuristic cncpt, but looks a bit off to me.

All that being said can't see that at setup so I'll reserve complete judgment. But not sold at first sight.

That is pretty out of the box for Titleist. Does look like a Nike design, especially the name. I am sure they perform though. I do not see Titleist sacrificing performance for looks.

I like the look too, but Titleist isn't normally the company that goes for futuristic. When I hear Titleist, I think classic. This most likely won't appeal to Titleist's fandom. Most people who are Titleist loyalists have more traditional tastes not futuristic taste.

Futuristic is more of a market share that TM, Callaway, or Nike would hold.

They look sweet though, I hope they perform well.

      Do you remember when Baby Got Back and End of the Road topped the billboard charts? If so,  then you will remember when Lynx irons won a couple Major Championships in the early 90's with Fred Couples and Erine Els, and that the cat symbol was one of the coolest logos in golf. If you don't remember those songs...well there is always google!!!  
      LYNX disappeared from the mainstream for quite a while---you can read about LYNX announcing it's return to the US last year in this as usual great piece by John Barba The Cat is Back   
      So what does this mean for the forum.....a great testing opportunity as usual.   Lynx is providing 4 sets of the Prowler VT and 4 sets of the Black Cat irons for you to test, review and keep.    Not sure which one fits your game, take a few moments and check them out on the website--at the time this was posted the site is undergoing some maintenance, but you should still be able to see which model interests you.

      Hey Y'all,
      First time to the forum and I'm starting this thread fairly selfishly, but could be cool to see what everyone's recommendations for upgrades would be!
      Currently playing a set of Mizuno MP60's that I bought used about 10 years ago....long time.
      I always buy used clubs cause prices are just too crazy for me (still waiting on that lottery ticket to hit for that custom fitting experience).
      My question is: What would be y'all's recommendations for an iron set that's comparable to the MP 60's (I love the thin topline and forged heads), but a  newer set would make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Not too loyal to any brands but really interested to see what I should give a few whacks at my local golf store. 
      Thanks in advance and I look forward to seeing what everyone's playing and what everyone's drooling over. 
      P.S.    I've been looking at the Titelist AP2's
      Cheers Y'all!!!
