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.

      Howdy! Looking forward to my fitting next week for the new T-Series irons. Currently gaming 7-9 AP2 and 5-6 AP3 and a 4 in the TMB.
      Titleist usually gives their fitters a sheet with blend suggestions (and even loft adjustments recommendations). Has anyone seen this sheet yet? Has anyone been fitted for a blended set? If so, what is your setup?
      Thanks!

      Lynx Golf announced it's return to the US Market earlier this year.  To help spread the word, Lynx offered up 4 sets of it's Black Cat and 4 sets of it's Prowler VT irons to testers of tMYGolfSpy.   These testers will be sharing their thoughts with you on everything regarding these irons. 
      They'll begin with a bio of themselves and their games so you can see which tester might most resemble your playing ability and some initial thoughts on the looks of the clubs fresh out of the boxes from the UK.  
      Over the next six weeks or so, they will be returning to the thread to share their thoughts and answer any specific questions you may have about the irons, so check back here regularly to see how they are performing for the testers. 

      Testers for the Black Cats are

      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.
