Titleist 755 Iron Reviews

By Eric Cornelison

Specs

Titleist 755 forged irons have a thin face and smaller sweet spot, which provides less forgiveness. These irons are made for the low handicapper and the good ball striker. You can get Titleist 755 irons with a steel shaft; the steel shafts come in regular or stiff flex. A Titleist Tour Velvet Cord grip comes standard with the 755 irons. The soft-forged 410 stainless steel provides more feel and sound, which will help when you get fitted for these irons.

Perks

These clubs provide a great deal of workability. Hitting a fade and draw will be easier with the 755 irons. The vibration dampening chip provides a lot of feedback; you will know when you hit the sweet spot and when you hit off-center.

Sacrifices

These clubs have a smaller face and are less offset than some players will be used to. The loss of distance on mishits is considerable, so those that need a more forgiving club should look elsewhere. Sometimes, these irons do not react the way you want them to when attempting to work the ball, because of the smaller face and sweet spot.

Bottom Line

A serious golfer looking to improve his ball striking will benefit from 755s, but they are a bit expensive at $600 (in 2009). You need to get fitted for these--if you are much shorter or taller than 5' 10", the standard 755 iron will not work for you.
