Titleist T350 Irons Review: NCG Summary
These irons are absolute rockets. The ball speed that these irons produce is just bonkers; if you are looking for more distance, look no further than this Titleist T series iron.
The T350 model has a stronger loft and a bigger head, but these are not your average big clunky game improvement irons. They look brilliant behind the ball, and the new forged face produces the sound and feel of one of the smaller ‘players’ models.
- Great distance
- Incredibly powerful trajectory
- Feels like a forged iron
- The Spin was a bit too low for me to game.
Titleist T350 Irons Review: First Impressions
It will never not be an exciting day when Titleist invite you 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. The T350 irons are not clubs I would usually pick up to have a hit with, with them being game-improvement clubs, but I’m really glad I did.
The T350s are the biggest of the new range, with a thicker top line and wider sole than the T100, T150 and T200 irons. They look and feel powerful behind the ball, with the lofts being pretty strong. I think they’ve done a great job disguising the offset so that they still have a player’s feel, even if they are big game improvement irons. You do feel like the ball is going to cannon from the face when you stand to the ball.
Putting together a game improvement iron can’t be an easy job for Titleist. To build a powerhouse of an iron whilst keeping the looks and quality that golfers expect out of a Titleist iron must be a difficult balance to strike, but they have got it absolutely right with the T350 irons.
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 am usually fairly sceptical of game improvement irons as they don’t really work for my swing. I generally need more spin and more control, and typically game improvement clubs don’t feel right for me, and I hit them way too low to be realistically usable.
My first shot with the T350 iron was an absolute rocket. Not the low rocket that I fear, a rocket that launched high, spun enough and flew for miles in the air. I couldn’t believe I managed a shot with 130mph ball speed and with a peak height of over 100ft. The Titleist T350 irons certainly had my interest now.
The technology Titleist have put in these irons is worth knowing. This head is inspired by the T200 iron that is used on tour and just builds on everything that iron does so well. It has a hollow construction that gives it some of its immense power and forgiveness as it allows them to have more room to move weight around into optimal positions for the golfer.
It has a new, stronger forged face and improved ‘Max Impact Technology’ (a power spot directly behind the sweet spot) which allows ball speeds to remain high from all contact locations, and a new tungsten brazing process which allows engineers to be more precise with locating CoG to give you that extra forgiveness.
All the shots I hit were pretty impressive. The ball went higher than I thought it would, it spun more than I thought it would, and to average 200 yards with a 7-iron is just crazy. Golfers who need some help with hitting it higher and further absolutely must get out and give these a hit during their next custom fit. I have not hit many irons that tick all the boxes that these irons hit.
The beauty of Titleist’s T series range is how well you can mix and match the clubs in a split set. A golfer could quite easily put a T350 5 and 4 iron in the set, with T200 mid irons and T150 short iron for a true combo set that covers all the bases. There aren’t many brands that offer that.
