Titleist launches T-Series irons
Titleist has has launched a new family of irons called T-Series that replace the AP range.
The final set of AP irons, the 718s, were unveiled two years ago, and their replacements follow a similar structure in that there are three models to suit a wide range of golfers, although Titleist felt that the enhancements in their design meant that they could no longer be called AP irons.
The new T100 iron replaces the AP2, The T200 replaces the AP3, and the T300 replaces the AP1. The higher the number, the higher the handicap the club is aimed at – so the T100 is aimed at low handicappers, and the T300 is designed for those operating at the higher end of the handicap spectrum.
The T100 is a players’ iron that features a forged cavity construction and a thinner, more responsive face. An average of 66g of co-forged, dual density tungsten optimizes launch within the 3-7-irons and boosts off-centre forgiveness. The irons also boast enhanced sole camber for cleaner turf interaction, less offset and a thinner topline that matches the old 718 CB model.
The T200 features ‘Max Impact’, an innovation that extends the maximum speed across the face for consistent distance by combining Titleist’s thinnest face, a structural support and a silicone polymer core developed in partnership with the Titleist ball team. Performance benefits include an improved launch and a more preferable feel. This players’ distance iron has a forged L-face, tungsten weighting in the long irons and is designed for golfers seeking distance from a tour-inspired look.
The largest and longest of the T-Series, the T300 features Max Impact technology and tungsten weighting for distance and forgiveness. It also has a medallion dampener for improved sound and feel, and added bounce on the sole for improved turf interaction.
The Titleist T-Series irons go on sale on August 30.
RRPs (per club): T100 – £160; T200 – £160; T300 – £125
