Think I’ve narrowed it down these two bad boys. Would like to hear thoughts from people that have played them one or both.


what say you Wrx

    Had a friend, index of 4, buy both Apex and T200 at Roger Dunn. He's a low ball hitter. Traded in his Cobra tour for the Apex. Apex were OK, not great, and not much better than Cobra, although they went further due to lofting. Titleist introduced T200 before his 90 days were up so he exchanged Apex for T200. He was extremely unhappy with very low ball flight of the T200. He immediately exchanged for Srixon 585/785 combo set and is very very pleased, good distance and higher trajectory. I don't remember what the shafts were in the Apex and T200, whatever they had in inventory for steel, stiff. The Srixon are Modus.

    Also have a ex tour buddy who seldom plays, maybe once a month now. He said **** it, I need a great cavity back and went all the way from Apex pros KBS C-Taper XS to off the rack Srixon 585 with Modus XS. He absolutely loves them.

    I play the Apex CF19's and have found them to be much better in terms of distance, consistency, and feel than just about anything else that I have compared them to... that includes the Z585's, Rogue X, and P790's. I'm a senior golfer so distance and consistency is very important to me because I don't have a lot of club head speed. My irons are equipped with UST Recoil 760 F2 shafts and I love them.

    I have never hit a Titleist iron so I can't compare those.

    I have T200's with Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 shafts. So far I like the clubs. They aren't as forgiving as my old cavity backs but that's more me than the clubs.

    The T200's go plenty high. That just depends on what type of hitter you are and what shaft's you play.

    I have not played the APEX irons.

    I have just ordered a set of apex, having tried the t200, Mizuno 915 forged and hmb, z585, p790 and cobra forged (not all in one go I hesitate to add). The launch monitor figures were better on the apex for me, but more than that they just felt the best and I was striking them more consistently. I don’t know why and they were probably in the bottom half of my list before I went in.

    I like the Apex, but really dislike the stock shaft. Make sure you try it in the right shaft.

    I highly recommend the Elevate TOUR shaft from the Apex pro, not the regular 95g or 105g shaft the Apex comes with. Its a much better shaft.

    Had the apex 19s and currently play the t200s.

    apex irons are great especially if you don’t practice much.

    i love the badge design of the t200s which is part of the reason why I got them.

    I think they have a little wider sole than apex and a bigger head size overall. . I don’t like the 43 degree pitch as It throws off gapping a little. Yesterday for first time in my life had 8 pars in a row on the back 9 and finished with a 3 putt bogey for 37. A lot of that had to do with the t200s forgiveness.

    You can’t go wrong with either I just know t200s won’t be my last iron where for a lot of ppl Apex irons tend to say in the bag a while. if that makes any sense to you.

    I am club ho so you know how that goes.

    I actually think the True Temper Elevate shaft is a good "stock" shaft that will fit many (the goal of a stock shaft). It may not be for everyone but to me it's a better feeling version of the XP95 and 105

    Exact set up I went with. Same height and gained 10 yards overs z545. Also better feel.

    Tested the Apex, T200 and my own 585. All 7 irons. T200 was about 5 yards farther and seemed the most forgiving. I tend to launch high so T200 kept flight down a little better. All felt great. The T200 loft may be a degree stronger so that may account for it. Liked the T200 better than the Apex (by a little) plus the 50% trade in bonus so went with the T200. Would be happy with either including keeping my 585/785 combp set but new is always fun.

    Having owned 45 + sets since 1976 ,most in last 20 years and many forged player cb variety along with 6 or 7 Ping models I obviously have a iron issue,LOL. Not wealthy and places like this forum allow me the option to trade,buy,sell. That said your choices are both excellent and really boil down to what you like to look at assuming thier preformance for you is similiar. One observation over the last number of years seem to reveal guys have a desire to keep their Apex models longer than any other including Ping. I don't have validated stats on my comment but just what I see and hear. FWIW I got the Apex 19 5-g PX LZ last year and have my annual iron jones spending time at CarlsGolfland Trackman range with the option to hit about anything thing. Sure I would like to own 3 or 4 top sets (as I use to but can't now) but have found nothing that improves over the 19s. Frankly disappointed in the new Titleist line looks . JMHO
