Base on recent fittings, i have been fitted to almost 6* upright in some clubs. According to a PGA pro each company has different specs but generally they have a certain tolerance on how far their irons can be bent. How far can titleist forged irons be bent? If they cannot bend upright enough is there anyway i can get custom built clubs to fit my lie angle?
Hi Christopher, We will bend our irons up to 2°. We have AP2 and AP1 heads that are built at 2° upright which means that we can bend those to a maximum 4° upright. The MB and CB heads only come in standard lie so 2° upright is the max on those.

When clubs are custom ordered through Titleist, are they just regular heads that are bent after chroming? Or, are they bent before chroming? I have had good luck in the past bending to spec and then chroming. Of course, you have to still to a minor tweak post-chroming because they will move a bit due to the heating of the chroming process.
Cathi, Titleist Club ConciergeHi William, We wouldn't recommend bending them 4° at all. It's not that they can't be bent (because they are forged), but you take the chance on crimping the chrome which may flake and if it flakes,it will eventually rust, so we do not bend more than 2°.
