Those looking for long irons that provide increased ball speed as well as higher trajectories will be pleased to hear about the latest offerings from Titleist.
The new U•505 and T200 utility irons provide golfers with enhanced feel and improved accuracy in two tour-proven shapes engineered to create more scoring opportunities from distance. Sounds good right? Here's what Titleist had to say about them:
“Both new U•505 and new T200 build on the success of their predecessors and feature key refinements in feel and playability. With this line, we have created two high-launching, forgiving and fast utility iron options that feel incredible. We have continued to drive performance while also putting a priority on exceptional feel through the strike. Combine that with an ultra-clean look, and you arrive at the new U•505 and T200 models.”
- Josh Talge, Vice President, Titleist Golf Club Marketing
For the player seeking increased launch and speed at the top end of their bag, the new U•505 is an extremely versatile, high-launching utility iron that now looks and feels dramatically better. According to Marni Ines, Director of Titleist Irons Development, Golf Club R&D: "For golfers seeking the ultimate option to deliver launch and forgiveness in a larger profile, U•505 is the perfect long iron for that player. Others want the benefits of a utility iron packed into a more compact, player’s shape. T200 is that club." With regards performance and technology, the new U•505 features an updated, clean design that inspires confidence at address, while the refined Max Impact Technology, re-engineered chassis and new Variable Bounce Sole work together to drastically improve feel and playability. The result is an extremely fast, forgiving and versatile utility iron.
Available in 1, 2, 3 and 4 irons.
The new T200 utility – offered in 2, 3 and 4 irons – provides more solid feel across the face for the player seeking utility iron performance in a tour-preferred compact profile. Featuring the same technology as the new T200 irons, T200 utility irons are engineered to be a high-launching and forgiving option at the top end of the bag. T200 is the most played utility iron on the PGA TOUR, as its tour-inspired shape (featuring the same blade length and offset measurements as T100 and T150) and all-around performance makes it as simple as ever to blend into a mixed set. As for performance and technology, the new T200 utility iron features an unmistakable leap forward in feel. A completely re-designed internal structure takes T200 to a new level, with a more stable chassis, refined Max Impact Technology and a new dual taper face bringing tour-level feel and speed to this forged-face iron model. Available in 2, 3 and 4 irons.
