2020 Official Member Review: Titleist T100S/T200 irons


Recommended Posts

So most of us have got our orders in, unfortunately without a fitting. However we all have a good understanding of what our specs would be so feel confident in what we ordered. Hopefully we will see the irons in 2-3 weeks but we all understand that may be a pipe dream and will continue to adapt as things change.
Below is what I ordered. I haven't hit the Project X shaft in 15+ years but I played it for at least 5 years in a few different sets. It should be a good fit. 
T100-S
3-P
+1/2"
STD loft
-1* lie
MCC Align 
What I am looking for out of this test is an iron that fits in between the org P790, which I played for a year and a half, and my current gamers, Srixon z785. The P790's are a great set, the forgiveness is incredible. What I struggled with was controlling trajectory and distance, seemed like no matter what I did they just flew the same distance the same way. I am able to control the Srixons much better, however the forgiveness is not the same. My hope is that these fit right in between the 2 sets. More control and more forgiveness (who doesn't wish for that I know).
For those of you that don't know anything about me or my game take a look at the review I conducted last year below. If I get results anywhere close to this I will be walking in the clouds.
 
Knowing that we are waiting to get our hands on the clubs, what questions do the members have? Any specific test requests? Any hopes for what type of results we will see? Anybody currently gaming T-100 or T200 that can offer some insight as to how the perform? I guess it is possible for someone to have T100S as well.
 
So let's hear what you have to say...
 

I know your review will answer some questions I don’t even know I have yet. So I am looking forward to that!

Other than that if you could just find a way for me to cope with the severe amount of jealousy?? That’d be great! [emoji23]

Happy to hear you guys were already able to get some stuff figured out!

Chicken or egg dilemma,
I didn’t order the W knowing that I could fill that gap with a SM8 50* to match the 2 SM8’s I just got.
 
Will be ordering soon...

Yeah I kicked the idea back and forth in my head but ultimately with it being 48* I figured it would be more of a full swing club to fill the 110 yard range. I have mulled over the thought of adding a 52* SM7 since I have a spot in the bag open but I tend to use my 56* for almost everything not full swing. I have always played this game with the idea that being well versed with one wedge can be more beneficial that having 3 or 4 specialty wedges.

I currently have 714 AP2 which has the 50 degree gap wedge and I was using 54/58 in the wedges. I decided on of my hybrids was a bit redundant with the 5 wood too so I dropped that and picked up 52, 56, 60 in the SM7. It’s a little tight on the loft, but I’m viewing the 52 as the start of my specialty shots now. I’m looking forward to seeing how it all works out, but I think I’ll like having tighter gaps on the short end vs the long.

The 52 really is a nice club to use for half swings and greenside chips. It’s been my favorite for years.

I have always been a 4 wedge guy and with it being 48 I just felt more comfortable going with the 50 since that is what I have been playing and it matches my other 2 more closely.  It will be interesting to see  how the lofts match up with my game. I have always used my PW as my baseline for yardages, so the loft has stayed relatively constant even as they have gotten stronger. P790’s were bent weak to accomplish this.

Amazing. I’m sure she still knows it happens when she isn’t home [emoji1787]

My new set put me at a 45 PW and a 49.5 GW. I’m still tempted to use my SM7 52 even though the gaps are wrong. There’s that look that I love and trust.

I do have a generic 48* wedge that sits in my bag since I have the extra spot. I don’t normally use it unless I hit a few bad shots with the 56*. Then it is mainly just for a different feel and to get out of my own head. Usually a couple shots with the 48 and I forget about the bad ones with the 56.

As of now I don’t plan on carrying anything else. That may change down the road but we can discuss that when the time comes.

I couldn't agree more...and there were so many members that wanted to be in on this one, that I'm sure we all have some jealousy getting the better of us right now.  Kind of like the same jealousy towards those that still have courses open in their neck of the woods...the itch to get back out there is killing me.

Unlike the rest of my fellow-reviewers, I haven't done a fitting for irons in a long time, I don't remember my data, so I've managed to arrange a fitting for this coming Friday.  I'll be seeing Tim at the 1757 Club in Dulles, VA.  They have a semi-enclosed hitting/fitting bay, so I'll be able to get both Trackman data and see the actual ball flight.  Unfortunately the regular Titleist fitter isn't available, he's staying home to avoid bring the virus home to his wife, but I'm confident that Tim will do a fine job.  Once that's done, I'll be waiting as patiently as possible for the next step.  At least in my neck of the woods we can play and practice, I sympathize with those of you in more restricted areas.

Had a good time doing the fitting with Tim, a nice guy, and apparently very knowledgeable.  Apparently I'm a pretty standard guy, although we did decide on the AMT Red shaft, as opposed to the standard AMT Black.  If I can believe Trackman, I may gain 7 to 10 yards, but I think that's to be expected based on the lofts.  The interesting part is that my launch angle and descent angles are both pretty much unchanged.  Now comes the waiting.

... I found it difficult to get excited about the arrival of my Titleist T100-S irons because Illinois golf courses were closed with no open date planned. But the Governor announced he will open our golf courses May 1st. 🤗  So now the reality of my T100-S irons arriving has actually begun to sink in. I have a new and unhit set of P790's that I bought last fall and planned on taking to Phoenix for the winter. Between my herniated disc and Covid 19, I never made it. So now I have a new set of T100-S arriving sometime in the near future (we hope) and I am looking forward to putting them in play. Obviously Titleist is under the same kind of restrictions many of us are experiencing and keeping their employees safe is the most important thing so I understand this will take as long as it takes top put together my irons safely. Last season I played my 2017 P790's as my main set and rotated in my P760's, Srixon Z Forged and occasionally my Coba Forged Tours. Obviously haven been chosen to play and review the T100-S irons, I will not be rotating any irons, just play the T100-S irons only and write my review. 

... So those with courses already open can start getting ready for our reviews of the T100-S and T200's, along with those whose courses will be opening soon. And for those of you in the boat we have been in here in Illinois without an open date, I hope your courses open sooner rather than later. I am really looking forward to putting my T100-S irons into play, first just to get out and play golf again, and second to play the only irons I was interested in that have an honest shot to replace my P790's. Hang in there and keep watching this thread! 

I'm really excited to hear your thoughts on them.  Such a nice looking set I'll probably have my eyes on all summer.  Not that there's anything wrong with my Ap2s... but this year has had me doing a lot of window shopping.
