Takomo 101T Vs Titleist T200 Irons Comparison
The Takomo 101T and Titleist T200’s are both hollow-body irons.
But which distance machine is best for you? Find out in the following overview.
Takomo 101T Irons Overview
“The Takomo 101T’s are hollow-bodied with a 431 stainless steel construction.”
And while the face has been milled to be thin, it isn’t forged. Still, the Takomo 101T has about as good a feel as you can expect from a hollow body iron.
It also resembles a forged Mizuno iron so it is very pleasing to the eye.
But the main purpose of the Takomo 101T’s is to play long – and play long they do. WIth the 5-iron, I was averaging 144.7 yards of carry.
They don’t feel super smooth and could use some stability around the perimeter.
But if you don’t have trouble making consistent contact, the Takomo 101T’s will likely add a few yards over your current irons.
Titleist T200 Irons Overview
“The T200’s also have a hollow body design but with the added benefit of a forged face and tungsten weighting.”
The tungsten weighting goes a long way towards improving the stability of shots.
Even my toe-side mis-hits were maintaining the same spin rates as pure shots. As a result, these mis-hits were also flying straighter.
The forged face also adds consistency and a smoother feel. But it should be noted that there is a 1.5° decrease in the 7-iron of the T200 set compared to the Takomo 101T’s.
Flight is similar between the sets until you reach the 7-iron – then the T200’s fly significantly lower.
“I liked that the Takomo 101T’s gave me more stopping power around the pin even if they felt a little thinner and harsher. But if you prefer pure distance with a smoother feel, the Titleist T200’s will be right for you.”
