Titleist introduces new opportunities for golfers who are looking to increase launch and spin from their utility iron, including four options in the new U•505 model.
Improving upon the foundation of the previous generation U•510 and U•500, the new U•505 is a wide-soled, high-launching utility club. Designed for the player who is looking to increase launch and speed from their long irons with a faster face, the U•505 features evolved Max Impact 2.0 technology and new denser D18 tungsten weights, delivering improved sound and feel with outstanding versatility. The player’s shape provides confidence at address.
“With the U•505 we have players covered regarding what they are seeking in launch, speed, feel and looks at the top of the bag. The immediate positive feedback we have received by players who have put these in play has been encouraging. They love the balance of the height advantage and control they are getting from a utility iron - that’s what these clubs give you – in addition, players love the look when they put it down at address. Even though they may play blades or T100’s in their regular set, they want the confidence and forgiveness these clubs provide when they set them down.”
- Marni Ines, Director – Titleist Irons Development
SPEED THAT FEELS AMAZING
With a thinner forged L-Face and the infusion of Max Impact Technology (Max Impact 2.0), the U•505 is Titleist’s highest COR utility iron ever. A new reconfigured hollow body, core support structure, and enhanced high resilience polymer core, ensures that dynamic speed generation now comes with superior feel and sound.
BETTER TUNGSTEN FOR BETTER LAUNCH
Utilising Denser D18 tungsten weights and a brazing process used in aerospace construction, Titleist engineers were able to concentrate weight more efficiently and be even more precise with CG placement. In the U•505 utility iron, that meant sliding it lower and towards the heel, where tour pros and better players felt it improved launch dynamics the most.
LOOKS LIKE AN IRON
Based on U•510 player input, the U•505 was designed with a shorter blade and shallow face but kept the wide sole to maintain all of the performance advantages while moving towards a look that feels more in line with an irons set.
