Titleist Concept Irons

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.

Agree here. Or if the hosel was clean and the back just said Titleist.

I like the looks.  A bit off the norm.  But I'm not sure I have the game anymore to play these or any blades for that matter.  :)

I like the look. With all the shine it's hard to tell how the form will be looking at it from all angles, but it's a good teaser.

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

Each letter stamped is wasted money :D

If they are hollow construction like the i500, they'll be stupid easy to hit.

I'm not a big fan of the look. Prefer more of a symmetrical look to a certain extent on the back. But then again, you dont see the backing at address. I'll reserve judgment until I see them in person

I actually really like the looks of these.

The rumor I have heard is that the are indeed hollow and an updated version of the C16 irons. Would be really cool if Titleist messed around with filling the cavity in these to expand their lineup offerings. If they don't they will basically be the same as the TMB's

I like the look myself. I'm a minimalist, clean, thin top line, minimal offset guy. Be interesting to see if these are an MB or a hollow body. I'm sure the CNCPT will go away if they become a production iron, even so I don't mind it. To each their own but always amazes me how people gripe about script or look of the back of a club when the only time they even see it is in a picture or in their bag.

Looks a lot like my AP3s with a slightly different badge and some additional shaping on the hosel.

Looks to me like an i500 competitor. Wonder if they're hollow or loaded with a new speed foam competitor. Could also see this being an extension of the TS moniker into irons.

I think it's a beautiful iron.

I doubt that's it's final name however.

Maybe I ask what you don't like about them Tinkerman?

I feel like there wasn't much thought in the design, look  very chunky in the back and they just slapped a CNCPT logo on it. NO cavity or separating elements.

I'm thinking the CNCPT might not stand for CONCEPT but might imply CNC PT.

 

As in CNC milled ProtoType.

If those Cncpts offer custom stamping and I were looking for new irons, I'd be interested.

 

If they stamp "9" on a seven-iron like everybody else, forget it.

 

I'm sure that jlukes is right there with me.

Just hit the CNCPT 01 and 02 along with every other possible club head and shaft combo. Ended up buying the CNCPT 01. More of a players distance iron. The ball exploded off the face. I loved them. Can't wait to have them in my bag in about a week.

I have to say that I have been intrigued about the CNCPT irons since reading about one late night in bed. Also, I would admit that I'm a bit of a product maniac. I used to change irons every year until TMBs came out in a full set and then have been playing with TMBs since they first came out (3yrs).

I love my TMBs and after getting fit at Club Champion with the shaft that fit my game (KBS C Tater light, stiff) I have never hit my irons better (this includes having several lessons to hone these puppies in). That begin said, I love technology but at $4000 a set, I didn't think that I could justify spending that much money (though I was probably saying the same thing about the TMBs after spending $250 per iron). Anyway, I would admit that online photos of the CNCPT 01 irons did not appeal to me but the CNCPT 02s did. When my wife/kids told me that they'd pay for the irons for Father's Day, I was like -"What dream am I in?" and "Better take advantage of this as lightning doesn't strike twice. So I set up a fitting at my local club champion.

Still doubting whether or not I should spend this much money on irons, I went in with the mindset of comparing these irons to the TMBs. I wanted so badly to hit the CNCPT 02 irons well but the numbers were comparable to my TMBs. The fitter suggested that I must have been a little tired since I hit warm up balls, then swung a lot for data with my TMBs, followed by CNCPT 01s and then the 02s. In any case, I concluded that the 02s were not for me. OK, so back to the 01s. I actually appreciated them more in person. The sole of the club was larger than the TMBs but the view from the top seemed comparable to my TMB irons.

What the data showed (going from memory as I didn't have a printout of the comparison, unfortunately)....ok, I thought this was interesting. I insisted on hitting 20 shots or so, each (note, they only had the 6 iron head). With each club, we deleted the worst 5 shots but would say that for each iron, the bad shots weren't that bad. It seemed I was getting 10+ yards longer on the pure shots. Smash factor was certainly higher, coming in around 1.43 on the good/great shots. So I believe that Titleist's assertion of higher ball speeds is true. 1.43 smash factor is pretty good  and I can say that my SwingCaddie device has me in the mid to upper 1.30s (I work really hard on matching tour averages for smash factor even though my swing speed doesn't match the pros). However, with strong lofts, there is probably some combination of this and the higher ball speeds contributing to the distance.

OK, so does this really justify spending the cash (in my case, it's actually ~$3000 b/c I am only looking at 5 - PW vs 4 - GW, 2 fewer clubs).  To be honest, I pulled the trigger and it came down to exclusivity and feel (call it 75%/25%). TMBs had a wow factor and I believe these will have a better wow factor. Some may be critical, some may call it materialistic but the bottom line for me is my golf obsession and the smile on my face when I have a nice set of irons in my hand.

 

From a feel perspective, I felt that I could actually feel more of the head of the 01s vs TMBs. I felt that I didn't have to swing hard. Interesting data showed that for the shots that I was 3 MPH lower in swing speed, my ball speeds matched or exceeded that of the TMBs. I felt like I was coming through the ball much easier. To boot, my shot dispersion by much tighter as well. When you pulled up all 20 shots, I was within 10 yards or so and the pattern was identical throughout (push draw right of target). My 20 TMB shots showed wider dispersion left to right of the center target (though distance was consistent).

A note on lofts. You all can go to the Titleist site and view the lofts. For me, the 01s were about 2 degrees stronger in the lower irons and about 3 degrees stronger in the higher irons. This fixed one issue I was having in the long game but created another problem in my short game. Right now, I play my 5 iron about 180 total carry. I have a 5 hybrid (I use is as a 4 iron replacement) that goes about 200 - 210 yrds. I expect the 5 iron in the 01 to go 190-195, closing the gap on my hybrid. The issue now, is that I have a 7 degree difference from my GW (50 degrees, 110 yrd club) and the 01 PW (43 degrees). To close that gap, I'm having my PW and 9 irons bent to match my TMB lofts and my 8 and 6 weaker by 1 degree (which is still stronger than my TMBs).

Hope you found this helpful. I'm looking forward to playing some rounds with these soon. Won't be available for my member/guest this weekend but will have them for my next GCAT tournament in a couple of weeks. If you are interested in feedback after I've played, say, 10 rounds I'll check back to see if there are any comments on to this post.
