Titleist T200 Irons Review: NCG Summary

Titleist T200
5 star review
NCG SUMMARY

There are so many brilliant players distance irons on the market, brands really have to up their games when they release a new model into the arena. The Titleist T200 has a tour-inspired shaping and might be the best-looking player’s distance iron I’ve seen.

The T200 model has a new forged face, a stiffer chassis, a new tungsten process and Max Impact Technology, all this new tech is going to help you perform better into the greens week in week out.

PROS

  • Great distance
  • Great spin for a hollow-headed iron
  • Forged face feels great.

CONS

  • I have to carry two wedges!

First Impressions

The excitement of being invited by Titleist down to their European performance centre to test some new clubs. We drove down to Woburn in excitement as being a huge lifelong Titleist fan having the opportunity to demo the new T Series iron range is a massive honour.

After having my fitting with the in-house tour fitter Duncan, I was then able to hit shots with all the irons in the new range for a more head-to-head comparison. Players distance irons are clubs that have historically bothered me, I have a few memories of hitting super long iron shots way over greens costing me numerous penalty shots, so I tend to stay well clear.

I am encouraged by the T200 irons purely based on their looks; shorter blade length, nice clean topline, and less offset than other irons in this category. I love the looks of a tour-inspired iron and this ticks all the boxes for me. I am not surprised that Titlesit have some tour players that put these heads in the bag.

NCG Verdict

The 2021 T Series irons were absolutely top-notch, so reimagining and improving them can’t have been easy. The 2021 T200 irons sat in the bag of golfers of all levels, from mid-handicappers to some of the best tour players in the world, so knowing that Titleist won’t release a club that isn’t better than the previous iteration, getting my hands on these is exciting.

For starters, I think Titleist have got the graduation between iron model just right this year with the T100s, T150s, T200s and T350s. Each iron model looks different, feels different and are for different players, but they aren’t too different that you can’t combine them all into one set.

I have used a variety of players’ distance irons over the years, and they never seem to last in my bag very long. I generally hit them too low, too far and with not enough spin, which has caused a few disasters, so I was interested to see if Titleist could solve this issue for me.

The first shot I hit with the T200 iron was pretty eye-opening. The strike felt great, but, like a tour iron, the ball had a high launch that I wasn’t expecting, and the peak height was up over 110ft! I genuinely couldn’t believe it.

It’s worth knowing what Titleist have done to improve the T200 from the last model. It has a stiffer chassis and a new Max Impact Technology (polymer core behind the face) that improves feel and ball speed from all strike locations across the face.

Titleist has developed a new 2000º aerospace brazing process which allows them to eliminate weld points and shift CoG more precisely to optimise every club in the set. It also has a new dual-taper forged face, which improves the sound and feel of the golf club, something that I think people miss in the players’ distance category.

The T200 iron also has had a sole redesign to help improve turf interaction. Working with Tour Pros as well as the grind experts at Vokey Design, they were able to improve the Variable Bounce Sole by softening the trail edge to allow the club to flow faster through the turf, even after contact. Developed for T100, it brings a Tour touch to T200.

I can see why a lot of PGA Tour players put the T200 long irons in the bag. The hollow head and added tungsten will give that little bit of added stopping power compared to the smaller heads, which is essential to scoring well.

The beauty of Titleist’s T series range is how well you can mix and match the clubs in a split set. You could easily mix and match the T200s into a set with the T100 or T150 irons, and maybe even add a T350 to the top end for some added distance and forgiveness. There are not many brands out there that can offer that.

Callaway Epic Max driver review

Jack is a PGA Golf Professional who specialises in coaching, teaching golf to beginners and top-level amateurs for 10+ years. He also loves his golf equipment and analysing the data of the latest clubs on the market using launch monitors, specialising in blade irons and low-spinning drivers despite having a chronically low ball flight.

Although Jack has no formal journalism training, He has been reading What's In The Bag articles since he started playing at 12 and studying golf swings since his dad first filmed his swing to reveal one of the worst over-the-top slice swings he reckons has ever been recorded, which set him off on the path to be a coach. His favourite club ever owned was a Ping G10 driver bought from a local top amateur with the hope that some of the quality golf shots would come with it (they didn't), and worst was a Nike SQ driver he only bought because Tiger was using it.

Jack is a member of Sand Moor Golf Club and regularly gets out on the golf course to prepare for tournaments. Jack uses a TaylorMade BRNR Mini driver, a half set of TaylorMade P7MB irons, MG4 wedges and a TaylorMade TP Reserve putter.
