insights and questionsAfter talking with Joe Kwok on the phone today, I thought I would open this up for discussion. Joe has been working on a set of Titleist 735 cm's ( 735cm ). Since they have not been released to public I would assume they are tour issued.
He said the heads are beautiful. Look fantastic. He also said they perform well also. However he said the feel was bad. "Click" is what came from his mouth. He said the feel was bad as a result of the harder stainless steel they used to make the heads instead of normal carbon steel traditionally used for good forgings.
Why in the world would Titleist put out a top shelf "forged" head that is made of Stainless instead of "carbon steel"?
I have an idea. Blast cast then hit saves money over forged from a bar of carbon. You have to hit the bar multiple times to get the form finished. If you cast the rough body first it will save the amount of hits to finish the head. Labor savings.
Stainless over carbon? Tolerances are better with stainless cast then hit over the traditional forgings. Save labor there also.
I don’t know. Are you really getting a forged head? Sounds like a cast stainless head spanked once in a forging die to me.
Again it might not matter either. As Joe said the performance was good and looks even better. So what if it clicks at impact and feels harder.
What do you think?
