  1. I have heard true temper has had a hard time keeping up with demand. Certainly based on others comments from TM orders, showing LZ out till oct.
  2. I agree with that, at least in the sense the T100 certainly have progressiveness built into the set. I think there is an advantage to be gained for players by blending, especially in the long irons. I dont try to work those shots from 175-190 at all so the T200 offers a more point and shoot mentality. Not to mention they launch higher so I get more out of each swing, where 7 iron and shorter I might be looking for a certain half of a green at least.
  3. Modus 120. Have been gaming PX LZ 5.5 but fitting cart only had 6.0. Could get ok numbers with it, but the fitter told me to try the modus 120 stiff and I was getting more consistent numbers on all fronts. I find the feel to be slightly more crisp than LZ too, but I get the same smooth kick
  4. I loved my TP when I had 10.5* driver but spun it too much. Switched to a 9* and Ventus Black and won't be looking back anytime soon.
  5. I agree with above poster, the stock vokey S200 is a pretty close match to the modus 125. Not sure on the Modus wedge specific shafts but have always heard they feel soft. I just switched to modus 120 S in my irons down to gap wedge. Currently have a DG 115 in my sand wedge and S200 in my lob.
  6. I’m going 5-6 in T200 and 7-GW in T100-S. Lofts blend perfectly, the fitting cart only had 7 irons but the T200 7 iron flew slightly higher and felt hotter and less solid.
  7. I’m sure you’ll happy, since I have this years T200 I’ll probably keep them till this new set is proven. Very excited to try the T100-S again as I have been working on my swing since I had that set. Honestly the new T200 do look better than last years, but are still are a bit larger than the T100 especially in the sole. Not saying that’s a bad thing, but for anyone who is being told they are identical in size I don’t believe that to be true. They are quite a good package, and a big improvement on the current model in both aesthetics and feel. They still feel less solid than the T100s but that won’t matter to everyone. Enjoy the set, I’m sure you’ll love them as I have really enjoyed my current set of them. Just didn’t want to buy the same thing two rounds in a row and I’m curious to see how more aggressive scoring irons can help me.
  8. Just got mine today, and to me the paint is actually better looking in person which is a relief. As for the feel, I find it slightly firmer than my T22 but that could just be me. I went with a Newport shape which I only have NP2’s so gives me an option for a different look. Pure strikes are pretty soft but you know you hit. I’ve always heard the method of attaching the face affect feel, and I would say the screws must firm it up slightly compared to Tei3 tape only. Just my two cents, will definitely be keeping mine especially since I got it for MAP pricing. Will be backing out of the the one they are charging 1K for.
  9. I ordered the same set make up with modus 120 S since LZ 5.5 I currently play isn’t a fitting cart option. The feel on the modus was so much crisper than LZ and I got the same kick. I have been playing full set of T200 all season but just feel like the short irons are hard to work, hoping the bulk of set being T100-S isn’t a huge step back in average strikes. If so I won’t hesitate to go full T200 again, but the feel on the T100-S was so good. My fitting numbers showed really consistent shots with the T100-S and way less dispersion front to back.
  10. These things are seriously ugly. I will decide to keep or sell mine after actually holding it, but have been gaming my T22 which I thought was busy, and that looks down right classy compared to this.
  11. I believe you are correct, the price should be $600. Mom and pops can upcharge, unclear on my club’s pricing as my pro won’t even tell me what he is getting in yet. I guess I’m just lucky to get my hands on the model I want, albeit at a pretty bit uncharge
  12. MAP at $600 means that is the lowest you can sell it for, to my knowledge no maximum.
  13. What are people who preordered seeing for a price? I asked my head pro and he didn't know what he would charge as of last week, estimnated it in the $850 range. My local shop is charging $1000, and the fitter nearby doesn't know yet. I know MAP is $600 but cost is $480, so the shops aren't happy with less profit on this than a retail stick apparently.
  14. Ventus black fan here, so I vote give it a shot. That being said I have never kept a combo that my heart wasn’t into. If numbers are comparable go with what you trust more, but you should give it a fair shake if you got fit for it. If your only issue is that it doesn’t say MRC on it, that’s your call.
  15. I have played the PX LZ all season in 5.5, and think that may be a good option. I just did a Titliest fitting and they only had PX LZ in 6.0 and after two separate sessions I was about to decide on the 5.5 flex again, but the fitter had me a try the Modus 120 in stiff based on the mizuno swing optimizer recommending it. After 5 swings I was sold on the modus, same smooth kick that the PX LZ 5.5 gave me but with crisper feel. The shots were super consistent, and mishits didnt punish me as much. I didnt expect such a difference in PX LZ 5.5 to 6.0 but the stiffer flex just made work harder and generally get less good results. The modus 120 seems like a similar shaft with a litte more weight than 5.5 and just as smooth.
  16. I played AP2’s with AMT white forever ago, and then bounced around with AMT black, DG 105, and finally PX LZ in my T200. Going for a new set of T200/T100-S and definitely going PX LZ, just fits my swing better than DG did. The feel is awesome, and I just find it works for me. I am currently playing 5.5 but always have to fit with 6.0, and with mid 80’s 7 iron speed I think 6.0 isn’t an issue… I got good numbers with 6.0 but always took the blind leap down to 5.5 which I can’t get after too hard. These shafts will feel more lively than AMT white and have a more pronounced load and unload. My understanding from fitters is that you love or hate LZ. Hope that helps. I still say it took some getting used to the different feel from DG models, but once I did I love it. DG just feels blah to me now, but still swear by it in my wedges.
  17. Totally agree with this, to me the special select was a step down. My studio select was the best feeling Cameron I own. Something about the special select head shape and contours that just don’t look as good to me, and the feel is very firm. To each their own, but this is really a special select with Tei3 insert not a button back as seen originally.
  18. I think the numbers on this release is as at least as big as T22 which means anyone who reasonably wanted one in time got it. The numbers I mentioned for my area alone are double the T22 allotment we got. This isn’t rare it’s just expensive and not a retail model.
  19. I’m told my local shop will be selling these for $850 for so, but MAP is $600 so that’s the lowest you’ll see it for anywhere likely. My club was getting 3 and my local shop was getting 4, a nearby fitter was also getting 3 or 4 and that doesn’t even count club champion. These were everywhere if you when to look, that’s the key part. Got one with my name on it but will probably pass at that price for it to just in my collection. As for next go around you just have to keep hounding your shop to ask if they can get it, I’ve never missed a limited I have tried to get but I’ve also jumped on it at least week before it’s announced on social.
  20. I thought about it, but the red is working well enough. I play black in my driver and love it
  21. Soles are at least as thin but less blunt and rounded as current set. Look wise at address I can’t tell much difference
  22. I was told late august, and I just placed my order today. Initially I was told I had to wait till Monday till he could input it, but our Titleist rep was in store today and put the order through manually. He said lots of orders on already and should ship a month from now. Impossible to predict, but I ordered the stock shaft I think so that can only help I hope. The new T100 felt awesome, very soft when flushed
  23. Just got to hit both, and I went combo set with 5-6 in T200 and T100-S in the 7-GW. Couldn't be more excited. The new T100 feel amazing, the T200 feel OK, but definitely give you the help I need in the longer irons. The sole on T200 is quite a bit wider than T100, but looking down at address it is better looking than this years model for sure. Feel is less hot than this year, and sound is different not sure if I think its better or worse. Just thought about how this season went and I think the help I need most is in long irons, where I like to feather the shorter irons more than T200 allows.
  24. Curious as to what this polymer is as well, as the pros at my place that hit them isn’t say they felt cheap or anything.
  25. This is super helpful to know, as release is so soon and I can’t wait to order. I’m torn on T100-S with T200 long irons, or a full T200 set. Been gaming the current T200 in a full set and honestly don’t have much complaints, just used to play AP2 and that feel was very sweet. I’m a 6 handicap (with a 3 year old) who gravitated to the T200 when my club fit almost everyone like me into them. the T100 seem to be getting more and more blade like, so the extra help seems to trump the lack of total finesse get with the mid to short irons. anyone hit the new T200 and could comment on the feel, or any other pertinent comparisons to current model. The offset in the current model is my only nitpick, other than the backs which is obviously just cosmetic.
