Titleist Irons Over the Last 5 Years
Titleist has become synonymous with the game of golf. Attention to detail, consistency, and high performance has been delivered year after year. Over the last five years, Titleist has introduced the revolutionary T series, and new versions of the 700 series.
Now named the 718 irons, the 718 comes in a variety of options for all types of golfers. MB, T-MB, and CB for scratch and tour players, down to the AP1, 2, and 3 lines for mid to high handicap players.
Released in 2019, the 620CB and the classic Tour blade 620MB were met with great praise in style and performance. The 620MB goes back to the Titleist roots in styling, and offers that classic minimalist look a Tour pro desires.
Also released in 2019 is the popular T series. The T series comes in models T100, T100S, T200, and T300. Although performance was outstanding, the series was renewed in 2021 and received much praise for the upgrades.
The 2021 T series received a remodeling, but retained the most loved parts of the 2019 line. The 2021 series features a satin chrome finish as opposed to the polished look of the 2019 model. They were also redesigned into a more classic Titleist minimal look, which many players prefer.
Old Titleist Irons Through the Years
Upon the purchase of Golfcraft (arguably the largest club manufacturer in the world at the time) in 1969, Titleist, aka Acushnet, released their very first iron set dubbed Finalist Forged. Three years later the AC 108 was released and was one of the first irons to feature tungsten perimeter weights for playability.
The late 70s brought us the Titleist Tour Model, which is the classic muscle back forged irons that Titleist has built ever since. Thin topline, minimal offset, simple “Titleist” logo on the back, and workability many pros love.
The Tour Model is now a numbered model, most recently the 620MB, but features a similar design from the late 70s. Many top pros have had major victories with this line. Tiger Woods completed the “Tiger Slam” with Tour Model blades.
How Often Does Titleist Release New Irons
Titleist is all about improving their offerings, and being the best golf manufacturer on the market. To keep up with the demand of “more and better”, Titleist has released some type of new iron pretty much every year since the mid 90s.
It is safe to say that you can find a new, improved, and impressive set of irons, for all golfer types, from Titleist every two years. With their history and impeccable consistency, it is a guarantee Titleist will be at the top of club making greatness for a LONG time!

4 thoughts on “Titleist Irons by Year”
The first Titleist irons were not named Finalist. It was a scotch blade with the back stamp Titleist with “by Acushnet” near the top line. It was the same forging used by the Golfcraft company to produce irons for Sears (probably other retailers as well). I could supply a picture if needed.
Ok yeah, I appreciate the feedback… the history is quite unclear at times when you go that far back! A picture would be great, can you please email it to [email protected] and I’ll review it and update the article. Thanks again!
I came acrose some old “titleist Tornado 2” . Where do they fit in list? Try to find some background info but its hard to comeby.
Yeah I haven’t really heard of them before. There are a few pictures across the web but not a whole lot of legit information that I can find. Based on the images I’ve seen, I’d say they are from the early 90’s, possibly even counterfeit. But who knows.
