In terms of technology, Titleist’s T-MB irons are as advanced as they come. And while the T-MB was originally designed as a replacement option for a traditional long iron, and it has been incredibly popular in that regard with Tour players and recreational golfers alike, the brand new 718 T-MB irons will be offered for the first time by Titleist as a complete stock set. Most unique about the 718 T-MB is its multi-material, hollow body construction, which enables a thinner clubface that creates faster ball speeds and allows weight to be repositioned to the perimeter of the clubhead to create incredible forgiveness on mis-hits. It’s also worth pointing out, however, that by using a hollow body design Titleist is able to maintain soft, responsive feel in conjunction with the thinner clubface. Additionally, the longer irons also utilize high-strength SUP10 face inserts to create maximum speed, and upwards of 90 grams of high-density tungsten has been positioned in the toe and heel to further improve stability at impact while also encouraging higher launch conditions. The 718 T-MB irons also feature a progressive CG system, as the center of gravity changes based on each specific club to deliver optimal spin and trajectory to maximize performance on shots of every distance. The stock shaft for the 718 T-MB irons is the mid-launching Project X PXi, with other premium shafts available at no upcharge as well for players looking for a different profile. The stock grip, meanwhile, will be the highly popular Golf Pride Tour Velvet.

Players of all ability levels. Don’t let the muscleback aesthetics fool you, the 718 T-MB irons were built to give players an impressive combination of ball speed, distance, launch, and forgiveness. And that’s a recipe that can improve performance for just about any golfer. Additionally, in terms of the players for whom this might not be an ideal set of irons, more specifically those looking for more blade-like workability, there’s a good chance that the T-MB long irons will be a perfect addition to their bag.
TGW customers discuss Titleist’s new 718 AP1, AP3, and T-MB irons after testing them.
Allows weight to be pushed to the perimeter for improved performance on mis-hits while also enabling a thinner clubface for more ball speed and distance without sacrificing feel.
Throughout the set, the center of gravity has been positioned in each club to promote optimal performance as it relates to spin rate and trajectory.
An average of more than 90 grams of high-density tungsten has been positioned in the heel and toe to create more forgiveness on mis-hits and increased stability at impact.
“T-MB, for me, it (looked like) more of a players iron, kind of a smaller head, blade kind of feel. But you get for longer irons more forgiveness and they’re definitely an uplift over a blade or a cavity back.”

“The (T-MB) 2-iron is one of my personal favorites. I love using a club like that off of the tee. It didn’t matter where I hit it on the clubface; it was super consistent. The ball flight was exactly what I was looking for. I could get it up in the air if I wanted to, and I could also keep it low. Overall, it feels so good, and you can tell how much (the ball) pops off the face, and I love that in a golf club.”
