Today, Mikey puts his old faithful Miura MC-501 irons in a head to head test against his new Titleist T-150 irons.

The T-150 irons are inspired by the player’s performance and feel of T100 but forged into a more confidence-inducing shape, T150 is a modern Tour iron with dialed-up speed for players seeking a little more distance.

  1. Can you please post a link on the comparison video of Ian’s Titleist 150 vs PXG 0317’s?

  2. Ian, what you said about decent angle is factual, but would disagree with it's importance (I get you're optimizing distance) IMO, The height gap distance between High, Mid, and Low ball flight is more important than a stock swing landing angle. I'm a 50+ year old golfer with a scratch and below handicap, and the value of the irons ability to flight the ball is 10 times greater than stock swing results. Maybe it's the advent of data and golfers trying to get to ideal numbers, modern teaching of it's all about turning (not using the hands), technology boosting the ball in the air, but it is crazy to me how poor really good golfers are at controlling ball flight. I played Arcos for 3 round and then returned it, without pre-defining the ball flight the data is poor. I will use my 8 iron at 135y to flight the ball below the tree line (35 feet high, with low spin) or hit it 157y (115 feet high with high spin). So the equation is different for me, adding 10-20ft of height for Mid flight only works if it's not adding 10-20 ft. to my low flight. Most of the guys I play with out drive me and I'm 1 to 1.5 clubs shorter, but almost none of them can control the ball flight well and they pay for it. How high or low flight is, is just as important as carry distance. I would like to see more advanced data that utilize more than one ball flight. Meaning what is the optimal low flight height (40ft?), mid flight height (90ft?), and high flight (110ft?). I believe that would start to expose how in some cases the how the new technology may be good at one flight but it poor at another flight. Either way I love the channel and the breakdown of technology, what manufactures are trying to achieve, as well as your agnostic mindset. Be well and play well.

  3. I hit t150 awful but i was swining bad. Will try again.

  4. I find it so interesting that Mike has unconsciously adopted many of Ian’s verbal mannerisms. Yeah yeah yeah, 100 percent!

  5. I’m playing Apex cf-19. I bought two other sets this year. Struggling with turf interaction. Made some big swing changes.
    I am looking at t150- t200- and apex pro. I have hit titleist but not the callaway yet. I love the old apex pros. My only concern is what to play with apex bro in the 5 iron.
    I’ll get fit in a few weeks. But excited to get my new clubs and take a break.

  6. Would love to see Mikey in the Titleists with his Modus shafts at -.25" instead of the AMTs at -.5".

  7. The difference comes down to a faster trampoline face vs. the blades. The shorter club probably nets more control of strike, and the "stronger lofts" are a necessity because the club shaft deflects more because of the lower CG – look at delivered loft in the test. The low CG is adding loft in the swing, hence the lower static loft to begin with. 4000 spin in a 5 iron is starting to show the limits of his swing speed vs CG and shft deflection, what does the 3 iron spin at? Extra trajectory is nice but 7w or 4H may be a better solution – although not all golfers like thos clubs…

  8. So I was just fit into T100 with AMT White x100 coming from Mizuno 223 in DG 120 X100. Makes sense I would hit the 7i great as they are pretty much the same. My question is what should I expect in longer irons with the reduced weight and not being able to actually try them before buying?

  9. Would love to see Angle of Descent data during these sessions given what Ian has taught us about it's importance in a fit. Otherwise top drawer as always!

  10. Tried these yesterday. Love the feel of the t100 but didn't love the 150's at all. Honestly for some reason i found the t150 less forgiving feeling (shrug)

  11. Why not more t-200’s or even a full bag?

  12. I dont have any issues with height and stopping power, if anything I want to bring my flight down a little. Currently play MC-501 w C-taper 130x… Was looking at doing a T100 / T150 Combo as my dispersion suffers a bit at the 5 and 4 iron. Is this the right route to go?

  13. Another top video guys. How about considering the Axioms Mikey? I’m a long time Steelfiber user and graphite is the way to go in my books.

  14. Hold up! Can I just mention how well Mikey is hitting these, and just how many tap ins there were even with the 5 irons – and blades no less. Fair play Mikey! Lovely set of shots for comparison. 🙌

  15. Not quite the home run if you consider every degree of loft would roughly equate to 2mph ball speed, with the titleist being 2 degree stronger basically performing the same with if anything a tighter SD for the muira. Would have been nice to see more of the comparable land angles & peak heights. The heel strikes in the muira and toe strikes in the T150 could be a result of the two shaft lengths?

  16. Interesting review/fitting…I had the last gen T100S irons (7-PW) blended with the T200 irons (5/6). But, the T200s were soooooo different from size, looks, feel, sound, and the sole resulting in a much different turf interaction which wasn’t apparent in the fitting bay off the fake turf…I’ll be interested to see if that has been sorted out. The T100S irons felt and sounded so much better too. the T200s were very clicky and that plastic crap on the back got absolutely annoying after 3 months…wound up selling them. Can’t believe they are still using that junk…just made it shiny and put more writing on it now…does look better; not sure the sound and feel are any better…will have to check them out and see!

  17. I would love to see comparison with Miura 302's

  18. Tragedy if anyone ever switches from a Miura to any other brand.

  19. I don’t understand the infatuation with distance, isn’t it more about solid gapping, good launch/spin rates, and consistent dispersion? I’d take the Miuras due to fractionally more spin, all other things (except distance simply due to stronger loft) being equal.

  20. I'm confused I thought that spin reduced launch but increased height?

  21. Just got fit for the first time ever for irons and ended up going T100 4-PW it shocked me how much better the performance was for properly fitted irons. Would love to come and see the boys next year and get a full fit done. Mikey’s swing is looking pure recently!

  22. Hi guys! So assuming someone’s irons are too long for them, the impact location tends to be where? The shot direction tends to be where?
    Also, as far as static measuring, do you still do wrist to floor or knuckles to floor?
    What length would generally constitute going down a 1/4 inch? I know static is not as important as the actual delivery, but as a general guide.
    Thank you!!

  23. As a high ball hitter the Miuras have my attention

  24. If Mikey is a 2 handicapper, that puts him in the top 5.4% of male golfers, so while it is interesting to see the results he gets, he is not really representative of us great unwashed masses who make up the bulk of your audience. Or of club buyers. Seems like its time to bring back Ronnie. Somebody with an average handicap of between 14 and 17.
    I hit the T150 7 iron today at the PGA Superstore in Rockville, Maryland. With a Nippon NS Pro 950 GH R flex 94.5 gram shaft. My current irons are solid forged blades with traditional lofts, 34 degree 7 iron, with Nippon NS Pro Zelos 8 stiff 87.5 gram shafts. My handicap index ranges from 16.2 to 17.2. So in a way, I ran a comparison similar to Mikey's but for someone at a lower level of skill. (BTW, I am 82.) Here are the results for my best swings (two for the T150). Used the new Mizuno RB Tour X ball.
    Forged blade 34 degree 7 iron: ball speed 95, carry 132, total 141, launch angle 23.8, height 76, descent angle 44, spin 4842.
    Titleist T150 32 degree 7 iron: ball speed 100.3, carry 141, total 147, launch angle 21.9, height 75, descent angle 42.6, spin 4371
    Titleist T150 32 degree 7 iron: ball speed 98.8, carry 141, total 149, launch angle 23, height 77, descent angle 43.1, spin 3998.
    It looks to me like the results I got confirm what you found for Mikey, that with the new T150 you are getting the same height and close to the same descent angle, less run and thus better stopping, all with the benefit of in my case almost a full club extra distance. These Titleist irons are going to be hot sellers. I also want to try the T200 irons.

  25. Quick question: No more TXG? Missed the change.

  26. Titleist irons are great but mikey was hitting his miuras so well! Other than carry distance, i’d say miura almost performed better until he got to the long iron.

  27. For ME feel and sound are very key factors; thus it plays a major roll in my club selection. Moreover, the brand value and the history of a club maker, also play a roll, Miura is a league ALL on its own…you gents both know that VERY WELL. Looking at the numbers Mikey produced, with each club, I have see why the Miura's had staying in his bag for such a long time. I wish him the best with the new set. That said, DO NOT part with the Miura's….they are CLASS!!!!!!

  28. Maybe the t200 5i needs a tad less loft for more speed, would also increase a bit the distance gap

  29. You´re talkng in the beginning a lot about hight and decent angle, that this is the decisive factor to go to Titleist over Miura. But in the analysis you´re not referring to it anymore. Would be interesting to see this data as well.

  30. wow, so don't even get to keep the txg name. I hope you got paid a lot of money to get rid of. your brand

  31. TXG Drinking game, Ian changes equipment, do a shot! Ugh, Tequila at 6:00am

  32. Enjoying Mikey hitting.
    More representative of some of us viewers.
    Whats your handicap?
    Is there a more forgiving Muira?

  33. Mikey is just a genuinely good dude. Looking forward to following his iron build journey ☺️🍻

  34. 10:54 what about when you have so much spin that your shots are 'ballooning' upwards?

  35. The Fletch of the golf world. Change clubs more than you do your skivvies.

  36. I realize you're trying to sell product, but really what's the point of comparing iron models that have different lofts/lengths/shafts etc. Unless the basic specs are the same, the test is all but useless.

  37. Great content as always! Thanks guys 💪🏽👏🏽

  38. Miuras are absolutely the best pure enjoyment irons available. T100/T150 are the best competition irons. What a decision.

  39. What do you guys think about spin equaling the number on the bottom + 500, ie 7 iron spinning at 7500 rpm? @trottiegolf

  40. You talk about angle of descent, but you’re not actively sharing that stat after each hit.

  41. Ian was saying Spin plays a less prominent role vis-a-vis Launch and Speed. Pls elaborate. Thanks.

  42. I was fit into T-200 irons with AMT RED S300 shafts on Friday. Not what I expected going in, but we tried many combos and lie angles and the end result is what is best for me. Bye Bye 1997 Cobra Oversize….. 😂

  43. Hello, I think I could help you out a lot. I would like to bring your TikTok account back to life. Willing to make you 21 TikToks per month from your YouTube videos for $250 per month. Have a great day,
    Dane Nelson

  44. Mike is overbending his right arm at the top of the swing. According to AMG Golf that is a distance killer.
