Shoots in the 70s
Model Reviewed: All clubs
Summary: I seldom. if every come across these types of review but when I do Im always amazed at some of the claptrap spoken. Bobby Jones's clubs were not matched in any way and certainly were not forgiving, the sweet spot about the size of a ten pence and placed differently in every club. My advice for all you who love to carp on about modern clubs is to learn how to swing the things properly.
Summary: I've tried dozens of sets and keep going back to these irons. I can work the ball and love the forgiveness and feel. I even tried the new AP2 and while they were 1/2 club longer I just did not hae the accuracy of the 704; and that's what the game is all about. Perhaps Titleist's most underated iron.
Summary: i have had these since 2007. i quit playing 2 years ago and was using callaway x-20 tour's when i quit and these were in my closet. just got back from golf galaxy and the range after having them bent 2* up and 2*strong. i cannot stress how important it is to have your loft and lie checked when you own a set of this type of clubs. it is unreal the difference in these. i used to honestly think that i couldn't hit them, and they were very unforgiving, and very short. come to find out, the lofts had been bent 2* weak by someone before me (bought on ebay, a leftie). so they had to bend some of them 4* to get to 2* strong. on the simulator, i flew a 6 iron 209 (i know, simulator lies), and on the range, 6 iron was a solid, and consistent 180-185. Mis-hits are not forgiving as far as distance, but do go very straight. i would say on the toe i lost 20-25 yards, and on the heel 10-15. but the mis-hits just off center maybe lost 5. these are renewed in my mind, and i love the way a sweet shot feels like warm apple pie. my advice for these is plenyt...
1. get fitted, clubs like these even 1/2* off will cause very short, ugly shots.
2. have your loft bent strong if you hit it high
3. have your lie/loft checked often to ensure they are within tolerance
4. swing smooth, and watch them fly far, and soft!
your good swings will be rewarded with the softness, and feel of a mb blade, and your mis-hits won't punish as badly as a mb blade
Customer Service: no idea
