The Titleist T400 iron has been designed to be the longest iron in Titleist’s popular T series, as well as one of the most forgiving irons on the market. It has the strongest lofts in the Titleist range, but the launch is not compromised with the T400s producing a strong, high ball flight.

Featuring a split sole design, it delivers smooth turf interaction, while a super-thin face and hollow head are fortified by high-density tungsten weighting making this a powerful and supremely forgiving iron. 

What's more, the set is progressive with blade lengths, sole widths and hosel lengths, which decrease towards the shorter irons. Overall, we think the T400 is a great game improvement iron and one of the best distance irons out there that will really help higher handicappers get the most from their games.

Might not offer the launch slower swingers were hoping to see

The Titleist T300 is undoubtedly one of the best game improvement irons available. To begin, it offers strong of forgiveness, distance and feel, whilst the max impact technology remains and has been improved aesthetically because Titleist has taken the extra tungsten weighting and hidden it. Consequently, this technology allows the face to be thinner, thereby improving launch, speed and feel.

Along with the technology above, it has a gentle offset, which means this iron will appeal to a wide spectrum of players seeking forgiveness and distance. In testing, we found it produced a noticeable jump in distance compared to the Titleist T200 and the dispersion was excellent too. Additionally, they are very easy to hit.

We believe this is a great option for improving players seeking a little more distance and consistency – A distance machine with a classic look, and one of the best game improvement irons out there just now, it earns a spot on our Editor's Choice Awards for 2022.

Won’t suit those looking for max feel and workability

The T200 has been made smaller overall to give a sleeker look - specifically, the blade length has been shortened and the offset reduced to match the new T100. From the back, the cavity has been enclosed by a polymer cap that has a metallic appearance to match the rest of the head, making it look like a hollow head

For any low handicapper that isn’t the best ball striker, or a keen golfer in the low teen handicap range, the T200 would seem to offer the ideal blend of performance attributes. However, better players should certainly consider following the Tour players lead and adding the T200 model in the long iron slots in their bag (or as a utility iron too) because of the extra playability it affords versus the T100 irons.

Where this club stands out from the T100s is the more powerful feel, but also the forgiveness. It feels a lot more stable overall and the margin for error is certainly a lot greater here, which enhances your confidence over the ball and the dispersion of your shots, making it one of the best compact mid-handicap irons on the market.

Won’t suit high handicappers

The T100 is an iron for the low handicapper seeking a classic compact shape whilst still benefiting from a degree of forgiveness. They feature traditional players’ iron lofts in a forged cavity construction, whilst the face is thin and responsive and the use of tungsten weighting in the 3-7 irons boosts off-centre strike forgiveness.

At address, it actually looks like the old Titleist 718 CB model. This is thanks to being a bit more compact on the top rail. However, it has even more forgiveness on offer to rescue a poor strike and it feels noticeably solid and soft at impact, with the extra camber on the sole helping it glide through the turf a little more easily. 

We very much enjoyed the T100 in testing and particularly found the longer irons easy to hit with good launch, consistent ball speeds and tight dispersion. Overall, this is a good, compact iron for better players looking for a blend of control and consistency.

Stronger lofts won’t suit all

The Titleist T100s iron provides the looks and feel of a Tour-level iron, but with extra distance due to two-degrees stronger lofts than the T100. They are configured in such a way that it ensures turf interaction isn’t compromised. 

Down at address, the T100s certainly looks like an iron that should be in the hands of an accomplished player. This is due to its thin topline and compact overall size, which may put off some players looking for more distance.

It's worth noting that it shares many of the same design features as the T100, including the heavier tungsten weights, but also boasts a Muscle Channel in the longer irons that increases ball speed and launch while preserving control and stopping power. Overall, this is an excellent and compact iron for better players looking for a blend of control and consistency.

Less forgiveness than most other Titleist models

The Titleist 620 CB Irons have been designed with lower handicap golfers in mind and offer a classic look that comprises of a compact head with a narrow sole and minimal offset. In terms of our look at the best Titleist irons, this one is definitely one of the most aesthetically pleasing.

A thinner topline and tungsten weighting in the 3 and 4 irons give a degree of forgiveness and strategically located Centre of Gravity locations throughout the set help to deliver great workability as well as responsive feedback. 

In testing, we found the mid and short irons particularly soft to hit and we were able to shape the ball nicely. Overall, the 620CB will suit a better player looking mostly for feel and control with just a little extra forgiveness thrown in.

Not very forgiving

Titleist’s real player’s iron, the 620MB is a one-piece forged muscleback that delivers sleek and simple looks as well as tremendous feel and feedback. One of the best golf blade irons we tested, the muscleback design produces a Tour-proven flight that is workable and controllable. 

What's more, the Centre of Gravity locations have been designed to allow for shot-making and to deliver responsive feedback and, when hit off the face, we found it to be supremely smooth with a penetrating ball flight. It has to be said, this is really only a club for the best golfers, but those with the necessary ball-striking skills will get a great deal out of it.

How We Test The Best Titleist Irons

Our testing for golf irons is built upon a comprehensive process combined with the knowledge and expertise of the Golf Monthly test team. As far as the specific procedure goes, before testing, the team will usually attend product launches and meet with the manufacturer's R&D experts to understand the new technology.

When it comes to testing, we often head indoors first to try the irons in a controlled environment. This usually takes place on an indoor simulator at Foresight Sports, with premium balls and the GCQuad launch monitor. Our outside testing normally takes place at West Hill Golf Club, a course with top-notch practice facilities.

We think it is vitally important to do both and continue to test the irons so they have been comprehensively put to the test in different conditions. It should also be mentioned that manufacturers cannot pay for a good review and we make our conclusions from the testing and our experiences. This is because we strive to give the best reviews possible so you can get a greater understanding of the irons themselves.
