Something is cooking at Titleist

After doing some more digging, Jonathan Wall posted this. Looks like they are for JT and they started with the 716 shape, added a tungsten plug in the middle of the club and then milled the finished product. Will be interested to hear more about these. Will Titleist release in limited production for sale?

They are experimenting with a high(er) moi blade.

Basically a 21 Apex MB with the tech hidden. Although, the Tungsten plug looks much bigger.

Two best blades I have ever played are the Cobra King Forged MBs and the 21 Apex MBs.  Both of which have tungsten plugs (different locations, obviously).  Would not be dumb for Titleist to attempt to create some forgiveness in their MB line.

I wonder if the tungsten is because of Tiger. JT seems to take A LOT of what Tiger thinks/says/does (who wouldn’t - at least from a golf perspective) and implement it, and I remember reading that Tiger used to (maybe still does) have tungsten behind the sweet spot of his irons. I think the article said he liked the firmer feel and even more feedback. I believe this was discussed when talking about the makeup of his TW irons but it’s been a long time since I read it, so I could be wrong. 
 

I just hope they continue with the satin finish. I’m not a fan of the bright chrome and it seems like more and more companies are realizing the satin and matte finishes are preferred. To each their own, though.

I believe to increase MOI you'd need more weight heel/toe. A tungsten plug in the sweet spot would be pretty negligible for MOI.

 

Yes, but these guys aren't missing the middle like we are. Would this make the "sweet spot" larger where the slight mishits aren't affected as much?

Well if you'd uncover your eyes then you'd see it. 

 

Weight removed from heel/toe along with center weight adjustment...

 

Allows for tungsten in the heel/toe while maintaining static weight. They're experimenting. Everyone is putting tungsten in irons now. Titleist did it with the t100 mid/long irons. Makes perfect sense to try it in blades too.

Might as well just make hollow bodied heads with Tungsten and then fill in the "cavities" with steel at this point.

I'm thinking they cut the weight out of heal and toe to offset the added weight from the Tungsten plug. Too much tungsten would just make the club too heavy. All speculation here.

Not a bad idea. Weight and bonding are the likely issues....and cost.

 

I could see someone like pxg or xxio doing a titanium/tungsten iron of they can get the materials bonded well enough to absorb the force of impact over and over and over.

We're looking at the same photo.

 

1: Getitdaily commented that it would increase MOI.

2: I responded that it would negligibly change MOI. (The plug would move weight back, and most likely change launch/spin but not affect resistance to twisting much)

3: You responded with a "yes but", talking about sweet spots.

 

I have no idea what you're arguing. This is the opposite direction of the T100.

Agree. But I bet they're also exploring filling in the heel/toe cavity with tungsten and using the center cavity to offset that added heel/toe weight too. 

 

We don't know for sure. Only thing we know is that they're playing with weight to see what they can do.

In aerospace we use "freeze plugs"

 

You keep the iron head at ambient temperature, freeze the plug, and drop it in. When it expands to normal temp, it's never coming out. I'd imagine that's what Ping does with their putters and TM does with their Tiger irons.

 

 

Press fitting is more common in golf with softer alloys and smaller parts that can easily be fit in hydraulic machines.

    • In-hand photos of 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus, Stealth 2, Stealth 2 HD drivers + fairways woods
      Check out our front page launch stories here and here. 
       
      What you need to know: For the first time, carbon is the most prevalent material by volume in a TaylorMade driver, and more carbon equals better performance, says the company. Last year, TaylorMade debuted a 60X Carbon Twist Face. With TaylorMade Stealth 2, engineers are bringing carbon to more of the golf club — and unveiling a new-and-improved Carbon Twist Face in the process. Stealth 2 Plus (low spin, most workable) Stealth 2, and Stealth 2 HD (draw bias, high launch, most forgiving) drivers make up the Stealth 2 family.

      Stealth 2 Plus


       
      Stealth 2 HD



       
      What you need to know: Breakthrough movable weight technologies and versatile designs are the hallmarks of the 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 fairway woods. Stealth 2 Plus is branded as “three fairway woods in one” owing to the unique performance characteristics afforded by the 50-gram sole weight. Stealth 2 features a slightly lower profile 3D carbon crown than Stealth. This moves CG down and away from the toe with more weight in the rear of the club for higher launch and MOI. Ultra-high MOI Stealth 2 HD features an oversized 200cc head and low-profile sole, creating an easy-to-hit, draw-biased club.
