For golfers seeking an alternative the TSi2 and TSi3 hybrids, Titleist has introduced the new U505 model in four loft options to replace the U500 and U510 models.

It is said to improving upon these prior models by featuring the evolved Max Impact 2.0 technology that features on the new T200 and T300 irons, as well as new denser D18 tungsten weights that deliver improved sound and feel with forgiveness and versatility.

These design features are assisted by denser D18 tungsten weights and a brazing process used in aerospace construction that concentrates weight more efficiently and be even more precise with CG placement. In the U505 utility iron, that meant sliding it lower and towards the heel, where tour pros and better players felt it improved launch dynamics the most.

Based on U510 player input, the U505 was designed with a shorter blade length and shallower face but kept the wide sole to maintain all of the performance advantages while moving towards a look that feels more in line with an irons set.
