2012 Titleist 712 Iron Pics and news!!!


Recommended Posts

Thanks to Dtown3011 for the pics from another thread...
Here are some great pics I took from the original thread where our member DTown3011 posted Pics for the first time. I thought the Pics needed their own new thread.

Thanks DTown3011 Derek!!!

Also Team Titleist just posted their own story. You can find it here... http://www.titleist.com/teamtitleist/b/tourblog/default.aspx

As you read this, several dozens of long, cardboard boxes, imprinted with the Titleist Script, sit in the back of a delivery truck en route to Arnonimink Golf Club just outside Philadelphia, host of next week's AT&T National PGA Tour event. They were all shipped from the same place, the Titleist Tour Deparment in Carlsbad, Calif.

On Monday morning, our Titleist Tour Reps at Aronimink will begin opening those boxes, each one marked with the name of a player in this week's AT&T field.

Inside the boxes: Prototype Titleist AP1, AP2, CB and MB irons (712 Series), which are being introduced on the PGA Tour this week for testing and seeding as part of our performance validation process.

(Please note: "712" is the series designation. Titleist has long used 700 numbers for irons, just as we just 900 numbers for metals. Accordingly, the "7" stands for irons, while the "12" stands for the new model year, 2012.)

Over the last few weeks, the Titleist Tour Department has been focused on building these iron sets to the custom specifications of our Titleist Brand Ambassadors.

This week at AT&T, members of the Titleist Leadership and R&D teams will begin working with our players to show, explain, fit and test the new irons, a process that will continue over the coming weeks across the worldwide professional tours. The feedback we receive during this validation process influences the design and specifications of the Titleist products available in golf shops around the world.

We will continue to provide behind-the-scenes information and product details here on the Team Titleist blog throughout the seeding and performance validation process.

They all look sweet with the satin finish! Thanks for the pics. I'd love to try the cbs or mbs for sure. They might kick out my rac mbs, lol.

The blades and Cbs look great. The AP1s and 2s look similar, but I will definitely hit them.

Hi,
Just received the relevant e-mail from Titleist.
They (712MB) look great.
Looks like
- the finish is a little different (more raw / satin like finish) and
- the sole a little bit thicker?
- hopefully no more weight distribution towards the sole; hope no higher ball flight compared to 710MB
For sure another good one and winner as it looks like.
Best regards
SJWDR

The 712 CBs look pretty sweet as do the 712 MBs, I just don't think I quite have the swing for the MB.

I don't know what it is about the MBs, maybe the satin finish, but they look AMAZING! Hopefully they feel better than what I've heard about the last Titleist blades.
