Titleist VG3 Forged Japan Only Irons – Introducing the new 2016 VG3’s by Titleist. Only offered in Japan the VG3 series is geared toward the mid to low handicap player the forged version as seen in these photos features very little offset yet with a rounded somewhat thick topline it’s forged head has a progressive cavity with short irons having no undercut while the mid to long irons have a deeper CNC milled undercut for extra added forgiveness. The soles of the mid to long irons also feature embedded tungsten weighting spread optimally across the entire sole area making these very forgiving and lowering the trajectory which blends well with it’s stronger lofts somewhat the same combo used in the Titleist T-MB 716 irons, but these are not stainless steel or hollow like the T-MB they are soft forged 1 piece heads, just the way we like um. Follow the jump for detailed photos of the PW, #7 and #5 irons….
Above – PW
Above – PW Face
Above – PW shows minimal offset while the top line isn’t all that thick with nice rounded edges.
Above – better image of the lack of an undercut, you don’t need an undercut with the short irons and you want something with a more mid trajectory designed around accuracy and manipulating approach shots.
Above – PW sole isn’t wide, more medium size
Above – Moving into the #7 iron you see an undercut design that has been CNC milled, this works very well with the stronger lofts. Low CG + Strong lofts = penetrating mid trajectory with extra distance & forgiveness.
Above – nice shot of the undercut cavity depth
Above – notice the CNC milling marks within the cavity.
Above – Beautiful face shape on the #7 iron
Above – the #7 has a thicker top line than the PW yet not chunky, the rounded edges make the shape very attractive and hides extra size well. The heel to toe length is not long it’s on the shorter side.
Above – #7 sole is perfect for the mid handicapper
Above – #5
Above – #5 has a more shallow face height for a lower CG making the long irons very easy to hit
Above – very nice amount of offset for a long iron
Above – I’m happy they didn’t make a wide sole long iron
Above & Below – some glamour shots. Thanks for reading and hope you enjoyed the pics if you are interested in purchasing the new Titleist 2016 VG3 Japan Only Irons please click this link: TITLEIST VG3 Forged Irons or email us at [email protected]
