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.

      Sold!!  Thanks everyone for the interest!     
      Grab a set that is currently the focus of the Wilson D7 challenge going on across the US. 
      This is the Wilson iron that is giving people back yardage they thought they had lost forever.  They are simply some of the easiest irons, I've ever hit and just go high and straight...and oh yeah far.   if you don't believe me, check out some the blog piece from Golfspy_barbajo
      https://mygolfspy.com/first-look-wilson-staff-d7-irons/
      The specs on these are 1/2 long and 2 degrees upright.   Hit me up with any questions, already have some inquires about these in the shop, but wanted to give my fellow spies who are in the market for a great affordable set of irons to start the year. 
      Note: the face's actually look much better in person than the pics, the only one that is really heavily used is the 7 (top pic 2nd from left) as it's been used on the range a lot more than the others.

      I am looking to unload a set of Ping iE1, blue dot, CFS Stiff, standard lofts & 6i measures at 37.75". These have been used the last two years and are in very good used condition with no issues other than general face wear and bag clatter - no scratches or gouges on the faces or soles. I put on new Ping 5L Cord grips (+1/32", hard to find) this summer and they feel great. I'm getting rid of these after a fitting showed that I need a stiffer & lower launching shaft and that allowed me to justify buying new toys rather than having them re-shafted! $300 $250 SOLD

      I'm curious how many are playing steel vs. graphite shafts on their irons/hybrids?  I've never considered graphite and my most recent fittings (fitters) never mentioned that as an option.  One of the guys in our group just purchased a set of G410's with graphite shafts.  He's 62, in great shape, roughly a 30 handicap, and generates high club head speed.  I asked why he got the graphite shafts and he said that was what the fitter recommended.  What are the key reasons for choosing one vs. the other?

      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?
