The ability to produce distance in an iron means little if the player can’t control it. That led Titleist to create a silicone-polymer core and position it behind the center of the clubface. Doing so allowed designers to make the face thin for more pop and the hottest area of the face larger for more consistent results. It’s a noticeable departure from the AP1 iron it replaces. The AP1 used a hollow-body construction in the long and middle irons to create speed; the T300 is a cavity-back throughout. The blade lengths, sole widths and hosel lengths of the irons flow progressively through the set, providing help in the long irons and more control in the short irons. An average of 52 grams of tungsten in the heel and toe of the middle and long irons further fosters the kind of off-center-shot performance average players need. Along with the wide sole, the tungsten lowers the center of gravity, allowing the lofts to be slightly stronger without sacrificing shot height. The stock shaft is True Temper’s AMT Red, a lightweight, higher-launch shaft that is lighter in the long irons to deliver more clubhead speed. In the short irons the shafts are heavier to promote more control—ideal for this player segment. Read more >>

Consistent shot shape and distance control. The smoothness of feel is among the best of the irons I’ve hit.
The typical simplistic Titleist look gets invaded by a break from the norm. Still beautiful from the top down. The ball gets high quickly but doesn’t peak and instead continues to climb.
Nice and soft feel at impact. I can control the ball. The flight was great coming off the clubhead and my errant shots were pretty straight. A very forgiving iron.
