    I’m a Titleist fanboy through and through. But there’s really no reason not to go with something like the JPX 919F if you’re in the Players Distance market.

    -Forged Irons
    -Stunning Looks
    -Lofts that are reasonable (PW is 46* and the GW IS 50*. No need for two gap wedges which is ludicrous when it comes to recent Titleist sets)

    T200 feels great compared to AP3. Forged face along with other tech inside the head makes it feel much less harsh, and not nearly as loud sounding.

    ^ That is GREAT news!

    Does anyone know if the offset has been reduced vs the AP3?

    Yes, there is - they are spinny as **** :-)

    This is also confirmed by MGS Most wanted test. Superve if you are a low spin guy, but a nightmare for someone like me. (Ok, maybe not spinny as ****, but most spin of all clubs in average. )

    Lofts are very strong, but progressive so P will be ok, but low clubs are really strong and there will be huge gappings.

    Yup. Less offset.

    Very good points, thanks for sharing. Do you think that the spin issues can be fixed by getting fitted for the proper shaft?

    I ask because I’m looking to get my first iron fitting and am deciding between the Mizunos and Titleist. Thanks!

    Spin is a result of CG location, dynamic loft and strike. If you can find a shaft which helps to drastically reduce your dynamic loft, and you hit them solid, then you will see them spin less.

    My son currently plays JPX 919 Tour. Was at Manchester Lane with him today for a full fitting. He hit the T100 with a bunch of different shafts but could not get spin down to reasonable #s. Tried the T200 and it came down to perfect values and descent angles. Shaft was KBS Tour X. Of course I did not realize that the lofts were so darn strong and a 43 PW to 50 deg Vokey transition Is a concern. Regardless he really enjoyed hitting them and liked the feel just fine. Coming from a 919T gamer that shows Titleist have really improved look and feel over the clicky AP3.

    Shaping is exactly the AP3. Whats the deal on the back? Iron Man set.

    Specs are up on the Titleist site and some youtube reviews as well.
    A few questions I haven't seen addressed yet, if anyone knows...
    1. Offset specs? This isn't on the Titleist site.
    2. It appears we lose the "Max Impact" polymer backing after the 7? If this improves feel, why ditch it?
    3. What happens with the rest of the "tech" when you transition from the 3-7 (all the stuff they've been talking about) to the 8, 9, and wedge? Change in face construction, use of tungsten, etc?

    Still laughing at the ball marker comment. You always got easy access to 7-8 of them

    Hmmm. Another reason to keep my Adams XTD irons. Looks like Titleist copied the behind-the-face "juice/damper" button of the XTD. Buy a complete set of XTD's for the price of a single T200 or T300.

    I love the look of both the T100 & T200. I'm hoping the sound is improved from my current AP3's

    So you get a 46* Vokey .. 3* gap from the last T200 wedge and 4* gap from the 50* Vokey. Or bend them all so you have 4* gaps.

    But getting an extra 46 Vokey is another club in the bag he does not have room for. Or am i missing something?

    With the added distance you may get frome these irons, I assume soething at the top of the bag goes away.

    To be honest he was not getting significant extra distance with T200 over his JPX919 Tour that are more standard lofts. The T200 spin and dispersion were better than the 919 Tour. He was getting much better distance over the T100 which to be honest performed just like a 718 AP2 for him.

    Wondering if we are able to make 5-9 lofts 1 deg weak and then PW 2 deg weak. Not sure if effect on bounce and offset...

    So my son redid the iron fitting at my club yesterday. Tried the CMB, T100 and T200.

    He quite liked the look and feel of the T100 but it still spun too much and just goes nowhere compared to his 919 Tours. Other than cosmetics he really did not see any significant improvements for T100 over AP2. Obviously that’s just him as seems like a lot of other folks are having success with the T100. CMB was similar performance to T100 which is a bummer as that club is gorgeous looking. I think for players that really deloft/shaft lean their irons they will be great...

    In the end T200 won out again. Not even close to be honest. To handle the previously mentioned gap issues we decided to go 5 - GW and then SM7 Vokeys 54 (bent to 53) and 58. If he does not get on with the GW we can always get him a 48 deg Vokey.

    One final comment - the T200 look WAY better in-hand than in photos. Not as **** as the CMB or T100 or 919 Tour but much nicer than say 919 Forged or similar competitors.

    Interest peaked on the T200's.... MP 20 MMCs as well as they might look as good as the T100's but have a little better performance if you need lower spin since the lofts are 1-2 degrees stronger accross the set.

    Yes more forgiving than 919 Tour. I would say they are at least as forgiving as 919 Forged but cleaner look at address.

    I just got back to the office from an outdoor fitting for the new T Line. I had the best results and ordered a set of T200 4-PW. I will try and give you
    guys as much information about my fitting and how I ended up going with T200. Ask any questions if need be.

    6 weeks ago I went in for an iron fitting. We tried Apex, Apex Pro, 919 Forged & Tour, 718 Ap2 & Ap3. After a very in-depth and detailed fitting I had the best results with the 718 Ap2 in X100 AMT White. Being that my fitter is world class, he said he wouldn’t sell me clubs or let me pay for the fitting until the new Titleist gear came in for his fitting cart. And with the 718 Ap2 still spinning a bit lower than needed, he wanted to see if any of the new gear would better help in spin.

    Today I arrived and it was a very hot day and a slight wind that was in and off the right. He had a T200 in 7i built and ready to test. After some warm ups, lie test and feeling ready to go. We jumped to the area where he has his FlightScope set up. Here are my take aways from my experience:

    1. The T200 looks just like the 718 Ap2 at address in terms of top line, size and shape. He even had the 718 Ap2 head out to test against and show me.
    2. If I didn’t know already, that the face was forged, I would have thought it was a forged club in terms of feel. I could not tell a difference in feel between the T200 and T100 in terms of forged feeling.
    3. There is a little bit of offset, but I didn’t mind it to be honest and it looks a lot less to me, then what I would think for a club with more offset then the T100 and 718 Ap2. It was very easy to set down and sat naturally square at address.
    4. The turf interaction was awesome. And that is with Texas summer fairways / course grass.
    5. The kicker for me was how impressed I was on toe strikes. My miss on the face is always toe side. My 716 Ap2 where awful on two strikes. I only saw on average 4-5 yard difference in carry distance on toe strikes.
    6. Yes, the lofts are jacked, but I guess due to the CG, new tech and all that, my distances where right on par with my current gamers and what I want in a 7i (170-175 carry)
    7. The T200 didn’t have that terrible “click” sound I thought the Ap3 had. I had no issues with impact sound the T200 made.

    The T100 are a great looking and feeling iron. They are a bit more blade like in shape, offset and size. I would say if you are a CB player and want to game something CB like but have all the new tech and added forgiveness, this would be a club for you to look at. I couldn’t get the T100 to spin enough and toe strikes where still a little to punishing for my liking. The golf hoe in me wants to play t100, but I need clubs that help when the operator isn’t working right. The data was very similar to the 718 Ap2 data from my fitting 6 weeks ago.

    My handicap is currently a 7 and I do believe I found a great iron to help with my biggest weakness… iron play. My set make up will be 4 - PW +1/2 1* flat with AMT X100 White.

    Swing and ball data averages from my fitting where: 90mph swing speed, 14.5* launch, 6940 spin, descent angle 42.5*, ball speed 119.5 and carry distance 176.9.

    As far as the gapping in wedges, I currently have a 50, 54 and 58. As he mentioned, every player has a gap, it just depends on the player and their game. When the new irons come and we do a fit testing, he is going to bend my 50 to a 48 and see if we can help with some of the gapping. If the 50 bent doesn’t work or causes any issues with turf interaction or ball flight issues, he said i might have to order the GW if I want to play a 3 wedge set up.
