Takomo 101 Vs Takomo 101T Irons

Takomo hollow body irons are affordable and sport premium features.

But which one is better overall? Find out in the following overview of each.

Takomo 101 Irons Overview

Takomo 101

“The Takomo 101 irons are hollow-body designed and made with 431 carbon steel.”

I liked the soft feel of these irons. In fact, on most pure strikes, they don’t feel as thin as most hollow body irons.

The Takomo 101’s have longer blade lengths and are flighted down by 2° in each club compared to the Takomo 101T set.

There is also significantly more offset in the Takomo 101 set – the 4-iron has a whopping 5.7mm of offset.

So overall, the Takomo 101 irons are significantly more forgiving.

Takomo 101T Irons Overview

“The Takomo 101T’s have shorter blade lengths and a slightly shallower face profile.”

The shallower face profile does impart some side-to-side forgiveness; but it’s not much compared to the Takomo 101’s.

The Takomo 101T’s do provide more stopping power from up close and from distance though.

“The Takomo 101’s are considerably more forgiving and would be good for mid to high handicappers. The Takomo 101T’s were obviously made for mid to low handicappers seeking more distance.”

Takomo 101T – First Impressions

Takomo 101T Irons2

“I loved the sleek looks and how the Takomo 101T’s occupy a nice middle-ground between players performance and game improvement.”

I’ve talked a lot about forgiveness so far but one of the first things I noticed about these irons was how workable they are.

I was able to affect different shot shapes so long as the lie was favorable. That brings me to another, less fun point.

The turf interaction wasn’t great with these irons. The leading edge is a bit blunted so you really have to keep yourself from digging.

But that’s really the only weakness that stuck out to me during my testing session.

Overall, the Takomo 101T irons look great and they perform consistently.

I could tell right away that these irons would be great for anyone who wants to increase the distance on the fairway or from the tee.

Who Are the Takomo 101T Irons for?

“The Takomo 101T irons would be good for 15-22 handicappers who are chiefly concerned with distance.”

That’s because all but the most severe mis-hits go virtually unpunished.

There wasn’t significant drop-off in ball speed between my perfect strikes and those struck closer to the heel.

The hollow-body design and milled face go a long way towards making sure the ball gets launched far.

And yet, there is a good amount of workability in these irons for mid handicappers.

The blade is small enough and square enough behind the ball to allow for accurate shot manipulation.

Plus, the Takomo 101T irons cost less than $600 for the entire set so they would be good for players on a budget as well.
