Titleist U 510 Utility Hybrid
Who’s It For?
The Titleist U510 utility iron is the perfect club for the golfer who likes the look of long irons but appreciates the playability of hybrids. This utility iron sports a sturdy-looking iron shape but remains large enough to fit in all kinds of technology that makes the club easy to launch high and far. Similar to its counterpart, the Titleist U500 utility iron, the U510 is just as effective when used to split the fairway on a tight par-4 as it is when attempting to find the green in two on a par-5. This club is a powerful and stylish option for those who want more performance from those tricky long iron distances.
The Tech Story
Titleist’s U510 utility iron boasts a wide sole and a larger blade length and clubface area, which helps deliver the feel and performance of a long iron with the forgiveness and launch of a hybrid. This design also creates a confidence-inspiring profile for those who do not always catch their long irons flush. Titleist also implemented a high-density tungsten weighting system that keeps the club’s center of gravity low, increasing forgiveness and MOI on contact made all over the clubface. Because of this, the utility iron is both easier to launch and more forgiving than traditional long irons. For distance, Titleist engineers inserted a thin forged SUP-10 L-Face insert into the clubface to help generate incredible ball speed numbers. In comparison to the U500, the U510 offers a thicker shape and lower center of gravity to increase launch and forgiveness. Meanwhile, the U500 is designed to produce a lower, more workable trajectory.
