T100

Recommended Posts

If it was me I would try bending them strong. If you’re steep they might tend to dig a bit more though. T100s 8-pw would be the same as bending yours strong besides the bounce. T100s 4-7 apparently go as high as the t100 because of the hollow spot in them. You could always bend them back if it doesn’t do what you want. bending them stronger will add offset but I don’t think you would notice the difference. I play the t100 and I absolutely love them. I’m a 9 handicap.

This is what I was thinking. I appreciate the feedback. I actually have a combo set of 4-5 t200 and t100 6-pw

I would pry start with asking yourself WHY you want distance. Regardless of your set of clubs, a 30* iron is going to go the same distance regardless of whether there is a P or a 4 stamped on the bottom. This is probably super obvious but I have to remind myself that it really makes no difference what club anyone hits as long as it is the correct distance. 
 

Just make sure there is a true playing reason for the change and it’s not ego driven. You could buy a set of super game improvement irons and maybe hit a 7 iron from 200, but that won’t make you score better. 

You make a great point. I was interested in strengthen lofts  to lower flight and added distance. I love my t100 irons cause of dispersion and control. 
 

i guess it would be “ego” driven to want more distance or lower flight. 
 

I was looking to add 4-5 yards. If I could get away with bending and getting everything else I love about t100 , sounds like a win to me. But if it is a risk than I don’t think risk is worth reward.

Totally understand. Everything seems to be distance driven these days. I’d be willing to bet you’d access more pins and hold more greens with higher ball flight and spin but it can be tough to hear your buddy tell you he hit one less club from the same distance. The weird thing is when you separate emotion/pride/ego, you realize it makes no difference. I often wonder why I care that someone hits their 7 iron longer than me but when I play with someone who clearly hits it well short of me, I never once wonder what they are hitting - because it doesn’t matter and my ego doesn’t feel at risk.  
 

if you are looking for a few more yards, I’d agree with @Jim E - if you are a sweeper and not a digger, you can pry bend them strong and not worry about it. If you get steeper, I’d just buy the 100s irons. That being said, take an objective look at the numbers and make sure it’s for the right reason. 
 

If you are like me, you could benefit more from becoming more consistent with solid contact and that’d make up for the extra few yards you seek. 
 

Hopefully this helps in some way and good luck with your search!

Does 5 yards really make that big of a difference to you? If it does then that's cool. It just seems like a lot of hassle for so little. Oh, and I'd just get the T100S's

Cheapest option: try another ball to get lower flight.

Yes, but if you need to hit a 7 or a 6 instead of an 8 iron to hit a certain distance, you are also hitting a longer club (shaft) which is more difficult for some. No? I never understood why this is never mentioned during these discussions. Please educate me.

Yes, it would be more difficult for newer golfers.  But since the OP is playing T100, I assumed he had the ball striking piece figured out.

I have a set of t100 irons and have had them for a while and love them. Just looking for a little more distance. And lower ball flight.

Should I just bend mine 2 degrees stronger or trade or buy the t100s? 
 

i know bending will to away offset. What do y’all think? 


I wouldn't mess around with what you have right now. But it's just my opinion.

 

There is a 2 degree difference between the T100 and the T100S models from what I read in the Titleist's specs on lofts. Delofting the set will decrease the bounce angle throughout the set which means that you will need to be much more conscience of how steep you're getting as the clubhead interacts the turf while striking the ball.  

 

You didn't mention what shafts you have in your set either. Titleist offers 8 different shafts in the T100 models.  Swinging with the right shaft is more important to getting the most out of your current club lofts and swing characteristics than 2 degrees of loft change. The ball you play factors into the equation as well.

 

I would stick with the higher lofts myself, and if the means hitting a 7 iron instead of a 8 iron....... who cares......you're just hitting to a number out on the course.

Just buy the T100s and sell the T100 irons. The T100s are not bent versions of T100; they are built two degrees stronger, so you'll get a more true look at at address and probably better turf interaction.

This x100! I went with the T100s but not for the distance. I am steep and create a LOT of spin. I needed my spin down and to keep bounce. Do I get a few more yards compared to the T100? Sure but it's not massive. I still have to pull the correct club and put a good swing on it.

should focus on your swing first, then try a different ball, then different shafts if you're playing ones that are biased towards a higher trajectory.  The T100 aren't a high launching iron head.

 

you're probably flipping into the ball if you've got a higher then desired trajectory and feel like you're shorter then you should be, no club is going to solve that for ya.

Caution: Why the push for more distance from irons? If you have a good distance yardstick, you might keep the T100s as is. For lower ball flight, find a ball that flies lower.

 

For distance, fine-tune your driver and fairway wood(s). It you could pick up an extra 10 yards on each, this would get you "a little more distance." And you would just have to tweak two clubs, not ~10 irons and wedges.

Uhh, just tweak your driver and fairways.

 

"But if it is a risk..." Again, you risk messing up your yardstick on irons and wedges for no guaranteed gain.

I'll give the perspective from an old short knocker..... 

I rarely play longer than 6200yd golf courses anymore as my body is turning on me and breaking down. I'm still decent in my course management and strike the shorter clubs decent . 4 and 5 irons are intermittent in their strikes. My 7i carry is decently at 152yd and I play 2021 prov1 ......I use the T100 irons primarily as they look phenomenal , give great feedback,  turf interaction and more forgiving than the compact head would have you believe.  Not the softest or longest but solid and consistent.  

My point is if you're hitting 11+ GIR's,  your distance control is on point and you like the look what more is there? Remember these are precision tools ...... YMMV

Shorter distances result in less dispersion.

The only reason I ever bend lofts is to fit my gaps. I don't see a purpose in bending them stronger for more distance. Like others have said, you're better off dialing in those yardages and putting your pride aside and hitting a 9 iron instead of bending your PW so you can hit a PW instead of the 9. As long as the gaps are good between each club, I say don't bother. 
 

IF you still want to, I'd probably bend them over purchasing the t100s.
