You'll have to wait about four months to try Titleist's new 712 Series irons, but pros at the AT&T National are getting their first chance to hit the new AP1, AP2, CB and MB irons this week.
While the heads of the new AP1 irons are the same size as their predecessors, their most significant new feature is a progressive blade length.
"The Titleist CB 712 Irons are about the same size,"said Chris McGinley, Titleist's vice president of golf club marketing. "But as you go through the set, we brought the blade size down. That lets us make the long irons more forgiving and the short irons more traditional."
When it comes to the Titleist AP2, which are designed for low handicappers, McGinley says Titleist has significantly increased the club's moment of inertia (MOI) by re-positioning tungsten weight within the heads.
The cheap price titleist cb irons feature a uniform muscle shape that provides more mass behind the impact area to achieve the quintessential soft,solid feel. This weighting also produces consistent launch angle,backspin and ball speed in order to provide precise distance and shot control demanded by better players.
"We've updated the cosmetics with a new satin chrome finish," McGinley said. "We've also updated the sole design of the MB , taking a little bit off the trailing edge because the guy playing that club—a small blade, pure muscleback—is looking for crisp turf contact."
In a words, Everyday golfers can go get fit for Titleist irons and order a mixed set if they want.
