Introducing the New CNCPT Irons – Engineered by Titleist

FAIRHAVEN, MA – An exceptional engineering journey by the Titleist Golf Club R&D team – to discover the most satisfying ball-striking experience imaginable – has led to the new series of CNCPT by Titleist irons.

The latest realizations of this process – the new CP-03 and CP-04 irons – have been constructed from exotic high-performance materials that can take up to eight months just to source. Each part has been forged and cast to the extreme limits of precision, yielding a strike that generates supreme ball speed with ideal launch and unparalleled forgiveness:

  • CP-03 provides an astonishing balance of power and control in a progressive midsize muscle back profile;
  • CP-04 advances the original CP-01 design, delivering ultimate speed with enhanced accuracy in a player’s improvement head shape.

They join the superior blade-size performance of CP-02 in the new CNCPT series – available for fittings beginning today, Sept. 24.

CNCPT Performance & Technology
Every CNCPT iron is designed and engineered to an inconceivable standard of excellence through the following innovations:

  • Forged supermetal L-face insert – the thinnest unsupported, constant-thickness face in golf – produces supreme ball speeds with increased launch (mid to low irons). CNCPT irons are the first club designs to utilize this rare, super strong alloy.
  • Multi-material, hollow body design allows for optimized MOI and CG placement in every iron through the set.
  • Extraordinary amounts of high-density tungsten weighting – making up nearly 50 percent of the total head weight in the lower lofts – provide precise sweet spot calibration and greater clubhead stability. At least 100 grams of tungsten on average (mid to low irons) is used in each iron to produce the most generous and forgiving impact possible.

CNCPT Models
The CNCPT series is designed to allow players to construct their ideal blend of irons using any of the three models. The look, feel and performance of each iron provides a seamless transition in any combination:

CP-02: Superior performance with a blade size and feel

  • Progressive muscle back profile
  • Minimal offset
  • Average of 113g tungsten per iron (3-8)

CP-03: Astonishing balance of power and control

  • progressive midsize muscle back profile
  • Minimal offset
  • Average of 104g tungsten per iron (3-7)

CP-04: Ultimate speed with enhanced accuracy

  • Progressive midsize profile
  • Moderate offset
  • Average of 100g tungsten per iron (4-7)

Fittings & Availability
Golfers can experience the performance of CNCPT by Titleist irons by attending a Titleist Fitting and Trial event (including Titleist Thursdays), being held at locations nationwide. To find an event, or book a CNCPT fitting with a Titleist.

Honma Unveils TR21 Fairways and Hybrids to Complete the TR Family of Products

CARLSBAD, CA – The new TR21 designs combine 60 years of expert Japanese craftsmanship with the cutting-edge construction and performance-forward thinking expected in the North American market. Honma’s TR21 and TR20 products combine in perfect harmony the things that premium performance golfers want – beautifully-crafted looks, great sound, solid feel, fast ball speed and playability that makes the game easier and more enjoyable.

For power and accuracy off the tee or from the fairway, the new TR21 FTi BIG-LB Fairway is built with today’s most advanced technology and a nod to Honma’s innovative “BIG-LB” products of the past.

For TR21 FTi Honma’s current development team used a multi-material design with a thin-walled titanium body and heavy steel sole plate to push the limit on low CG and give players a distance-oriented #3 fairway metal with low spin, fast ball speed and high-MOI forgiveness. The thin-walled body made from 6-4 titanium provides reduced crown weight, optimum face compliance and increased COR-delivering distance. The titanium body wraps into the sole behind the face to include a slot which provides speed on lower-face impacts when hitting off the turf.

Honma engineers brazed a substantially-heavy SUS630 stainless-steel sole to the bottom of the club to lower CG and produce higher launch. The steel sole, developed in Japan by one of Honma’s experienced Takumi, accounts for nearly half of the entire weight of the clubhead. A 12-gram tungsten weight located in the center rear portion of the sole promotes high-launch and high-MOI while helping supply the club’s signature “low balance.” The sole weight is interchangeable and the club features Honma’s innovative non-rotating hosel to provide loft and lie adjustment as well as maintaining the proper shaft spine position, regardless of the setting. Golfers can order the 14-degree TR21 FTi with a 50-, 60-, or 70-gram Honma Made-in-Japan Sakata VIZARD shaft.

TR21 F Fairways and TR21 H Hybrids Bring Impeccable Looks and Shot Control

The first thing golfers will notice about TR21 F and TR21 H is their compact and classic profile. Designed for golfers who want a narrow-bodied fairway and hybrid with crisp turf interaction, shot making and trajectory control. Akin to a beautiful forged blade iron, these elegant new fairway clubs provide exceptional performance and modern adjustability in a size, look and shape that many equipment companies seem to have forgotten.

TR21 F Fairways feature an SUS630 steel body and an ultra-thin, high-strength steel face to deliver maximum ball speed. Two adjustable sole weights allow the player to set them up for higher launch, or a more penetrating low-spin trajectory. The two sole weights combined with the smaller profile and shallow face provide exceptional feel and speed through the turf..

TR21 H Hybrids feature a beautifully simple, compact profile that inspires confidence to hit long approach shots close to the pin. Designed for crisp turf interaction to mimic the feel and flight of a well struck iron shot, TR21 H will help golfers hit more greens from a variety of distances and lies. An SUS630 body and thin high-strength steel face with variable-thickness design delivers hot ball speed while a centrally-located sole weight optimizes the CG for solid feel.TR21_Hybrid_tech.jpg

The TR21 additions to Honma’s TR family of clubs continues to take Honma into its next generation of innovation and supremely-crafted performance. Detailed custom fitting appointments are available at fixed-location Honma Experiences and through Honma Mobile Experiences found in multiple markets across North America.
