For those unaware, CNCPT is an initiative for the Titleist R&D group to “remove obstacles” and basically go for the very best performance regardless of price, materials, manufacturing techniques or other issues.
“CNCPT is an idea, a promise. It’s our answer to ‘What if,'” said Kelly Moser Jr., brand manager, CNCPT clubs. “What if our R&D engineers could bring their dreams to reality using materials and processes never before used in golf? We promise to provide them all the resources they need so that CNCPT will always deliver the ‘wow.'”
The first CNCPT irons, the CP-01 and CP-02 irons, both embody the CNCPT philosophy nicely with a ton of technology and performance built into sleek, modern looking packages. Both models feature a Super Metal L-Face insert, which Titleist reps call, “the thinnest unsupported, constant-thickness face in golf.”
The insert, which is made of a unique, exceptionally strong alloy, creates ball speeds and distance that have never been seen before in a Titleist iron to date. Both models also feature unparalleled amounts of high-density tungsten, as much as 50% of the total head weight in the lower lofted irons, producing higher launching shots with more carry and a steeper angle of descent.
For those wondering which new CNCPT iron is right for them, the CP-01 is designed for extreme speed, launch, and forgiveness (with more offset and longer blade lengths) while the CP-02 irons feature a more blade-like design with a bit less offset and more workability. Both models will go for $500 per iron.
