    Interested to hear how they are different. Thought I'd see the next regular 0311 irons before the Tours.

    Hum....Trailing edge sole relief.<br />
    2 high toe screws instead of 3. <br />
    Heel “notch” is gone. <br />
    Slightly different profile. 8,9,P are more rounded than before. <br />
    <br />
    I prefer the shape of the originals....that are actually sitting in the corner of my office because I prefer my Hogans.<br />
    <br />
    Ok then. Where’s Bob now to tell us how much better these are than the originals?? .....which were supposedly the best in the world. : )

    Subtle but classy changes. Looks less Ping-y looking without the white line in the bottom groove.

    Wow. I have absolutely no doubt these clubs are better than the first release and I bet the numbers would show it. They won’t release a new product replacement unless significantly better than the old. Boo ya baby! LA BOOM! Love it

    Looks like more offset in the short irons especially than the current 0311T. I like the muscle alot better and the lack of white in the bottom scoreline.

    Looks like the heads are a little bigger than the set I had. To accommodate a larger logo perhaps?

    It seems every visible edge has been beveled in order to hide heft at address but profile still blade'ish. I like em.

    I don't think the AP2 is a forged club actually and I don't think these are "prototypes" either. I bet PXG is already producing and I can't wait for the release.

    AP2 is forged. It even says it right on the back of the club. Take off your over hyped over priced PXG glasses and realize that Bob is selling snake oil at extremely high prices....

    And now only $4000 per club lol.......actually I do like the feel and look of the 0311T Gen 1 sticks. Just more than I would spend on a set or irons. My game would not improve enough to justify the cost.<br /><br />
