Titleist T100S/T200 Black CG2 Unofficial Review


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

So I have hinted about this in the What Are You Thinking About threads.  But today it became a reality. 

I can honestly say these are the best looking irons I’ve ever owned. I’ve owned a set or two along the way.  But nothing comes close to these in the looks department. 
 

When black irons came into vogue a few years ago, i loved the look immediately.  I never saw the right set to pull the trigger on though.   I was close earlier this year with the G710 Black, but it was early in the year, then Covid hit and I held off. 
 

Then Titleist announced these in early August. I knew they were coming but had to keep my excitement and news under wraps.  By then i was “testing” out something else.  Finally earlier this month I was ready and got with some reps did some local shaft testing—more later on that—and I was ready to rock  

So Ill follow this post with some more pics and some early thoughts, but will update the thread regularly on my experience with them.  
 

Feel free to treat this as you would a regular forum test threads , with any questions or things you’d like to see   

This will be fun!

So i took some quick pictures before i headed out to the course cold.  I’ll work on some better staging photos.  But these will get us going. 
 

One thing i was told by the people at Titleist, is these look so much better in person than the pics can show.  The T200 especially is really almost a jet black but appears a dark gray in the pics.  
 

I think @Rickp has seen a set in person and can probably attest to that.

Those don’t look bad... not even a little bit bad.  In fact they look so good, it’s bad... 

Not sure my brain could handle the wear marks after time, but they look very nice.

That’s definitely something I will be looking at snd sharing. So far clean as a whistle after some pretty heavy on course practice.  I hit multiple shots from the same and different distances. 

IF i can get some more practice in with them tomorrow I’ll show some face pics after some initial use. 
 

I don’t expect to be bothered by it, as I know its common with black finishes snd after all they are tools!

Those do indeed look great, and the picture showing the heads with the shafts make it fairly easy to see exactly how dark they really are. 👍

 

Curious if you ordered them as a combination set, and if the specs. on your vary from the Titleist standard, just how long it took to get them.

 

Also, will be looking for updates as they become available.

Great point on the picture with the ball. 

i did special order them. Its something that has to be requested through a proshop at this time, as this waa a one off.   I got them pretty fast, but I think normal custom time is running 2-3 weeks.  But it could vary on these.  
 

As to the specs, i ordered the T100S 1 degree strong so they would transition from the T200’s.  
 

I’ll keep the thread updated.

Dang.  Those may very well be the Blingeist irons on the market. I'd have a hard time making that first swing 😬

So I've gotten out for  9 holes with these the past two days.

Today was better than yesterday, when I struggled with my big swing fault again a case of the fats.   But today, I was making good solid contact on most of the shots, I hit each iron 6-P, the one hole where I could have hit 5 iron, was a tucked pin guarded by water on the right of the green and trees on the left, so I put the ego on hold and hit hybrid. 

So as expected I don't hit them as far as the MAVRIKS and T300 due to lofts.  That said, when I made flush contact with the 6 and 7 on a couple shots, I got every bit of distance as I ever got out of the others.   For me that means a 140 to 145'ish 6 iron, a 130 to 135 7 iron, 125 8 iron, 115 9, and about 100 to 110 P.

The big story though is the feel, and the stopping on the green, they are definitely getting some good spin on the well struck shots, again probably due to weaker (than my normal) lofts. 

Probably two early-2 nine hole rounds in to tell anything about the finish, but there are no visible marks as of yet.
