Titleist 695cb & Taylor Made 300 forged comparison Pictures

Recommended Posts

Well I got the new Titleist 695cb 's in this week. I haven’t had the time to hit them yet. As soon as I do a few times I will do a mini review. Looks however I can talk on now.

 

The heads are small. All around more compact than the Taylor Made forged cb's of recent years. Heel to toe on the long irons are noticeably compact. I you are looking for real forgiving cavity back these aren’t for you. These heads have a blade look to them. If you didn’t see the cavity and put it down the first thing I thought was traditional look.

 

Top lines are thicker than I would like to see but acceptable. They could have done the design a favor and rounded off the corners a bit more. It would have given the top line a thinner appearance. Acceptable over the recent years from Titleist.

 

Offset is awesome. Barely noticeable throughout the set. The neck has sharper transitions than the Taylor Made 300 forged, but is thick and stout.

 

Soles are thicker as you would expect coming from a cavity back, and the bounce is greater than the 300 forged. Nowhere near as pronounced as the X-tours, but they do have more than I thought they would have.

 

I am fairly picky. I like traditional designs better than others and I like a clean looking iron. So far so good with the 695cb’s. The truth of the matter is that I am MUCH more excited about the looks of these heads than I am suggesting. I have had a tendency to do that with new equipment. So I thought it would be wise to temper the thread a little till the novelty wears off a little.

 

I was told from a guy that is very unbiased that he hadn’t felt anything as solid and soft as these heads in a very long time. Coming from him I am expecting that these heads will do pretty well.

 

 

All the comarison Pics are the Titleist 695cb's and the Taylor Made 300 forged satin Lehmans...

Nice pics Richard, i am so glad to see that you finally got a decent set of golf clubs to use. Even the wedges are better.

 

Did you hit them yet? Are we meeting up next week to compare? Where's my wedge? Can you put a picture of it up so i may see it?

 

Want to sell those 300's? you won't need them anymore.

 

Great set Richard, i know you are happy about that purchase!

Great pics Richard!

 

They're a bit smaller than I thought they would be, which definitely is a good thing! Wish they would have made the topline a little flatter though, especially on the pw. I much prefer the shape of the 300 pw in the comparison pic.

 

But overall I'm very excited about these and the mb's! Can't wait to try them out...

I think that Titleist has a winner on their hands with the 695 series! Great Pics Richard!

Hit them today. Took the 3,5,7,9 and the PW of both the 695cb's and the 300 forged. While they look a lot different, there was little separating the feel. Very simular if feel. Solid heads and very soft. I am going to have a hard time at this. I will continue to hit them both for many weeks to determine which one might rise to the top.

The smaller head is a factor. The 3 iron is noticable and the PW cant tell. Did notice a fall off in proformance with the smaller head. 2 buckets of balls doesnt tell you much.

 

The toplines are thicker than I would have liked. Like most designs after hitting a lot of balls i tended to forget all about the thicker topline.

 

Easyyy,

 

Nice sticks. Not having seen them in person to me they look a lot like the 690.cb. Can you tell me if there are major differences?

 

JC

 

JC- I think they look simular to the 690.cbs. Joe mentioned the sole design is where the big difference is. Joe mentioned that the soles of these 695cb's didnt have the same ground leading edge as the 690.cb did. He would be better to explain than I.

 

 

Great effort there is getting the pics up. Good comparison too with the 300 irons. Man do the 695 heads look small in comparison..... pretty clubs but I think I'll pass on these as I may have difficulty hitting the ball!

 

They are great design. However I was showing these to my brother tonight to see if he like them. He said the same thing. He thought he would need a little more face on that long iton. He plays to a 8 or 9 to.

Richard, how was the ball flight?? I've always thought that the 690.cb's hit pretty high, so I'm kinda hoping that the 695's will hit slightly lower...

 

Same as the Taylor Made 300's. Nothing noticably different between the 2. The 695cbs have a lot of steel in that cavity. It is thick in there. Even though they are cavity backs they are player cavity backs at that. Strong flight, great trajectory.

So when do they hit retail as not even on Titleist's website?

I asked my local store here in the UK and they said the rep hadn't even mentioned them, the 905R or the 775 when he called before Christmas!!

I imagine they will come with the usual take it or leave it S300 DG as OE? A friend of mine orderd some 690.cbs with 5.5 Rifles last spring and they arrived in July with half of the season over. Titleist UK really don't push the models at all, a real niche product.........

I would love the titleist cb's if it werent for the thick toplines.. especially in the mid to long irons where you notice it.. i just cant overcome the appearence.. great looking blade besides the topline though

 

I am a picky about this to. The toplines are as bad as I thought. I am OK with them/ Sure I would like them to be rounded off and even thinner overall. They arent that bad though. Doable.

 

Richard

 

Which set will be making the journey to Pebble? :)

 

I am not switching from my old set yet. The old 300 forged are fine as wine for now. :blink:

This is kind of crazy, but I much prefer the look of the TM 300 forged :jester:

 

The 300 have satin finish, which I like better than the finish of the 695.cb.

The 300 have a thiner topline.

The 300 have a smaller offset.

 

And on top of that, the 695.cb live up the the well known Titleist irons reputation: The 695.cb's looks to be older and more worn out the TM 300 irons :crazy: :ninja: :ninja:

 

Titleist irons gets scuffed and dinged far too easily - whether its the stainless steel or the Carbon Steel edition, Titleist irons gets dings like a boxer with a glass jaw :ninja: :ninja:

 

The cast Phil Mick 731 irons also were prone to getting dinged up much too easily :ninja: :ninja:

 

Must say that I'm passing on these, and will wait for the release of the Bridgestone J33.cb and the Miura cb-301 irons :aikido: :ninja:

 

Consider me a Titleist HO, but not when it comes to irons - I love their woods, drivers, wedges and putters :), but not their irons....sorry :blink: :aikido:

Well the there are a lot of people that might like a added touch of bounce the 695cb's will give them over the 300's. It will allow those of us that catch the gound a touch early some forgiveness.

 

I hear you on the visual stuff. I tend to like the 300 for the last of thickness on the toplines and the satin finish, but these 695cbs are solid heads. I have been hitting both sets over the last couple of weeks and they are both great heads. I still need some more time with the 695cb's.

 

The wear and tear is due to a pro beating them up pretty bad for a while. Probably mis handled them.

I think you love the 695's, and you should sell me the 300's. LOL.
