Titleist T350 Irons Review

50 Words or Less

The Titleist T350 irons deliver distance with a towering trajectory along with generous forgiveness.  A great looking game improvement iron.

Introduction

Titleist continues to impress me with their embrace of the full spectrum of golfers.  Don’t get me wrong, the brand’s presence on all the world tours is immense, and any casual golf fan might still assume Titleist clubs are only for elite players.  However, for the casual golfer the new T350 game improvement irons offer the Titleist mystique without requiring Tour status – or ability.

Looks

The 2023 T-Series irons are now a true family in the looks department – in a good way.  Looking back at the 2021 family portrait, the T300 irons [full review HERE] looked, shall we say, unique.  With the busy cavity replaced by a sleek new hollow-body construction, the Titleist T350 irons blend seamlessly with their next of kin, the 2023 T200s [full review HERE].

From the address position, the T350 irons still sport their game improvement features – a thickish topline and modest offset.  Blade length is proportionate, and the overall silhouette offers strike making confidence.  The trailing edge of the sole became visible with the 5 iron.  This is a good looking set of game improvement irons from every perspective.

Sound & Feel

I’m still not certain which registered first – the sound or the feel – but both were instantly pleasing and noteworthy.  The Titleist T350 irons generated a crisp ‘click’ that was consistent across the grooves.  Initially, the irons seemed on the loud side, but I soon realized I was just hearing the uniqueness of the sound on a quiet morning.  With more hits, the tone and volume both registered more in the mid-range.

It would be easy to attribute the pleasing feel to the “forged” moniker on the head, but there’s actually another design feature involved – the hollow body construction.   Working harmoniously, the forged face and body construct delivered a soft, yet powerful feel.  As much as I enjoyed the initial impression that my contact was good, I appreciated that strike location was identifiable without feeling harsh.

Performance

Working with Joe Butler, one of Titleist’s Regional Fitters for my area who masterfully took me through an extensive fitting session, we honed in on a Mitsubishi Tensei Red for my set of T350 irons.  Seeing I was ‘a picker,’ Joe even snuck in a longer shaft – only to see me plow a row only a farmer could love.  I include that humorous episode to point out Titleist fitters leave no stone unturned.  Take advantage of their expertise, fully participate, and most importantly, be yourself.  Trust me, they’ve seen it all.

My results with the Titleist T350 irons aligned perfectly with their core descriptors on the Titleist website: “High, far, and forgiving.”  Comparing these game improvement T350s to my more players distance gamers, balls were definitely flying higher and longer.  And categorically more generous on off-centered strikes.

Yes, the lofts of the T350 are strong (1° to 1.5° stronger than the T200s).  But the combination of high launch and low spin gave the irons a towering trajectory that resulted in landing angles that held greens.  I picked up a solid 5-7 yards across the set.  The lower spin limited workability, but for the target golfer, that’s an easy aspect to sacrifice.  More important is the consistency and playability.

Titleist engineers achieved the performance package through a suite of technologies.  I described the exterior features – hollow body and forged face – above, but it’s also what’s inside the club head that adds to the strong ball speeds and forgiveness.  A “refined and strengthened” polymer disc located behind the face forms what Titleist calls Max Impact Technology.  In the heel and toe, Titleist not only upgraded the tungsten for improved stability but also used a no weld, aerospace brazing process that more precisely and consistently positions the CoG.

As if all that technology wasn’t enough for a great club, Titleist also utilized their Vokey design team to soften the trailing edge of the T350 sole for improved turf interaction.

Conclusion

While the looks alone might garner your attention, it’s the performance of the Titleist T350 irons that will truly capture you.  High flying and long with ample forgiveness, the Titleist T350 irons are a must try for anyone looking for new game improvement irons.

    Remind us of your 7 iron swing speed. Interesting shaft selection. Are you gamers steel or graphite shafted?
    Appreciate the review- insightful as always.

    • I don’t recall my speed Gary. My gamers are graphite and have been for many years. You can always find my current setup in my “About” page.

      Thanks for reading.

    Is their a reason you show the iron with a PXG ball ?

  3. Great review Matt ! These irons have been on my radar and am going to give them a good look in the next few weeks. I love that head shaft combo too.

  4. Thanks for this review, Matt. These are a gorgeous set of irons and you are among a growing list of reviewers who are writing raves. It also seems these new Titleist irons would easily accommodate a mix and matching within a set – keeping an eye on loft gaps of course.

    • Thanks Steve. And yes, Titleist has made it super easy to choose blended sets.

        I am currently hitting Ping G410s, but I’ve always wanted to transition into a forged set. Can you describe the feel of forged to cast as succinctly as possible?

        • Matt Meeker

          That’s a really difficult request Steve. First off, what’s your motivation to switch to a forged set? If feel is the reason, and for many it is, then you need to experience it for yourself. Secondly, today’s irons make the distinction between cast and forged a fuzzy area. OEMs use polymer materials behind a cast face, cast faces have become thinner, and sometimes the face is forged when the body is cast. All of these methods are meant to provide a “soft” feel at impact, which is the hallmark of a forged iron – especially when struck well. Here’s an odd analogy – to me there’s nothing like the feeling of a fresh set of sheets, same holds for a well struck ball with a forged iron.

  5. Meeks – Great review. From your fitting do you recall your 7 iron swing speed and whether you were fit into the A or R flex Tensei Red shafts?
    Thanks!

  6. Steve Gerardot

    Great review Matt. Are the 350’s your new gamers?

  7. I play a combo set of t150,
    200 and a 5 iron 350. Review here is spot on. When I first started w this set I was on the fence as to whether I’d stick with it. The 5 iron t350 is actually was won me over surprisingly. As mentioned here, it launches high, far and very easy to hit off the deck. Sound and feel are very nice and it blends perfectly with the rest of my set. I feel I have the best of both worlds with my entire setup. Great spot on review here. 👍🏻

    • Kyle,
      What is your set make up? I have thought about doing the same thing, but the blade lengths, offset and sole widths of the T 350 turn me off. I would weaken the T 350 by 1 degree for gapping and to take out a little offset, but that would also make the thicker sole play with another degree of bounce which I don’t need as a picker.
      Thanks, Joe

  8. How they compare to the T400?
    Thanks

  9. Chuck Zirkle

    Just switched from the T300 to T350. The feel and sound awesome. Feel like have picked up half a Club so far. Have only been able to game them twice. Bought 6-48W based on fitter and instructor. Replaced 5 iron with TSR1 23*. T350s have AMT Red R300 shafts, 1/2 over, 2* flat. Good upgrade innvestment.

  10. In terms of performance and forgiveness, how would you compare these to the PXG 0311 XP? Are they slightly less forgiving?

  11. These are great! I had to weaken the lofts to a little under the T200 specs however. At a 1 handicap I didn’t need a 180 yard 7 iron., 4 degree gaps work best for any of us.

  12. Hi – was just fitted into the same setup – what shaft did you get for your hybrid?

  13. 29 degree 7 iron. When is this going to stop

    • #LoftPoliceAlert
      When everyone understands that any discussion around static loft that ignores peak height and descent angle isn’t worth having. As many have said on several occasions, static loft is nearly meaningless. A slew of dynamic variables contributes to the flight of a golf ball.

  14. Another good review. I am usually a AP1, T300, T350 player but after A’-B’ing with the T200, Forgiveness was nearly identical and distances spot on with the 200s. Might add the 350 4 and 5 iron.

  15. Hi Matt!!
    2 questions. 1. As a fellow picker, was the thought process of the fitter that since you pick it/ hit it clean, that your irons might be a little short for you? Have you ever experimented with a little bit longer iron shafts? Results from that?
    2. As a fellow average ball striker and picker, do you feel like you do better with slightly thinner soles instead of thicker/ game improvement soles? On my poor strikes,
    I tend to hit 1 to 2 inches behind the ball
    (Dumb I know), I feel like the “game improvement” irons with wide soles bounce on me into the back of the ball sometimes.
    Even though I am not that good of ball striker, I feel like a thinner sole iron moves quicker and cleaner through the turf for me on good strikes. Your thoughts?

    Thank you,
    Joe

    • Hey Joe,

      Yes, the fitter thought a longer shaft might improve impact location. It was clear that it wasn’t going to work for me. For the second question I think it depends on the sole design and attack angle. I’ve hit clubs with wide soles that seemed to glide through the turf. And some manufacturers have distinct sole profiles to combat just what you state – like these Titleist. As always, hitting various clubs is the only true way to find out what works best for you.

    Sleek with wide soles. Would game anything for a #DoubleSecret

  17. Matthew Scheidegger

    I have been thinking about these since they came out. It’s time for some new irons and these may be it. Thanks. for the great review. #DoubleSecret

  18. Looks better than my Gen 1 T200s.

    #DoubleSecret

  19. Matt —

    Thanks again for your insights on this new Titleist offering. I’m wondering if you have any idea when P.I.G. might be reviewing the T100 or T150?

    Also, I wanted to mention, I followed your lead on the Vanquish driver shaft and have been absolutely thrilled about its performance. I replaced the Graphite Design AD DI that I had in my Titleist TSR3 with the Vanquish, which I never thought I would do. So thanks for that introduction Matt, it perked my driving game up considerably this last season.

    As always, keep up the great work, I’m a loyal follower and look forward to each review and golfing insights you publish.

    The Titleist T350 irons have to be the best looking irons they have ever made

    #DoubleSecret

  21. What is your opinion between the T350’s and Mizuno Hot Metal 923’s?

    • Matt Meeker

      Thanks for the question Jason, but I have not hit the Mizuno’s. Matt Saternus performed that review – LINK. I checked with Matt S and he did not hit the T350’s, so glean what you can from our reviews. And as always, find a place to hit them both.

      – Meeks

  22. How do these compare to the BB 2023’s?

    • Matt Meeker

      Matt Saternus reviewed the BB’s Brad. All I can say is try to garner aspects from both reviews on what aspects are important to you.

      – Meeks

    • Hey Matt. Was titleist fitted into a U505 3 iron with AD IZ shaft but can’t get along with that massive sole. I have a t200 5 and t150 6-wedge but wondering if slapping that GD shaft into the t350 4 might be the ticket. Lofts look about the same to what I’ve got as well. Any thoughts? I know Willy Z has a t350 3 so not unheard of.

      • Matt Saternus

        Donny,

        It sounds like it’s worth a try. I can understand – I’m not a fan of super wide soles either.

        Best,

        Matt

        • Thanks for the input Matt. I know you’d sorted me earlier on the Srixon ZX utility, would you say this setup would be more of a true long iron replacement as opposed to what the utility might be?

          • Donny,

            I think “long iron replacement” vs. “utility iron” is splitting hairs that don’t really need to be split. Labels don’t matter. “Does the club do what you need it to do?” is the only question.

            -Matt

  23. Walter Wellsfry

    I now game the T350’s after a short marriage three month marriage with the Mizuno Hot Metal 923’s. Matched with identical Recoil F3 reg shafts +1/2.” The Titleist’s won me over with higher, longer flight, more forgiving, with comparable feel. In short, I truly liked the Hot Metals…. but really like the T350’s! I must note that I pulled the 48 degree wedge and inserted my almost new AP2 gap wedge (re-shafted Nippon 105s shaft with matching Recoil). Btw I’m in my early sixties with low back issues which drove decision to go to lighter graphite shafts…
