The newest addition to the Titleist T-Series line of irons is the T400, and it is made primarily for golfers with more moderate swing speeds so they are able to launch their shots higher and farther. These sticks, which boast wide body shapes, hollow head construction, extremely thin face inserts, high-density tungsten weighting and advanced split soles, also are designed to provide greater forgiveness.
“T400 is a super-distance Titleist iron,” says Josh Talge, vice president of marketing for the equipment maker. “And this club is engineered to get the ball in the air and launch it as far as possible, even if the strike is not perfect.
“There are so many golfers who can benefit from this technology, for T400 allows them to get the absolute most out of their swings while still providing the playability of a Titleist iron along with that look, sound and feel that dedicated players demand.”
The T400s feature progressive blade lengths, sole widths and hosel lengths in an effort to ensure optimal center-of-gravity positioning through the set. And to help those moderate swing-speed golfers maximize performance even more, the irons are being offered with lightweight stock shafts in steel (True Temper AMT Red) and graphite (Mitsubishi Fubuki MV IR) as well as Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 Lite+ grips.
In late February, the clubmaker will start to conduct so-called fitting and trial events for the T400 model, with the irons becoming available for sale in golf shops shortly thereafter.
