Titleist’s iron line over the years has evolved from appealing strictly to better golfers to expanding to other player types. Still, the super-game-improvement-iron shopper had been shut out until now. Building off its experience creating a similar club for the Asian market and its expertise in strong-lofted, high-launching utility irons, Titleist embarked on making a full set for those who need help generating ball speed. The outcome is an iron with a wide, hollowbody construction designed to maximize forgiveness on mis-hits. To assist in that endeavor, loads of high-density tungsten (up to 100 grams in some irons) are used to not only enhance forgiveness but produce a low center of gravity to foster launch. An extremely thin L-face insert in the 5- through 7-irons offers extra yards in those clubs. Of course, golfers who tend to swing slower benefit from every gram saved, making the 43-gram Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 Lite+ grip (seven grams lighter than the regular Tour Velvet 360) a smart choice. Also new is the set configuration and lofts: Players in this category often use hybrids instead of long irons, so the T400 starts at the 5-iron. The pitching wedge is a super-strong 38 degrees.

Absolutely pured the ball. The weight is comfortable to swing, and the slim top is easy to look at.
Long and straight and workable if needed. The smooth shine of silver makes you do a double-take as it looks like it could be a blade.
Very pure sounding and a strong feel to it. Strong flight and forgiving on off-center strikes.
7-iron: 26 degrees; PW: 38 degrees
