    I think that the AP3's look really good. For people like me that play a combo set of AP1 and AP2, Titleist just fulfilled a need.

    Oh, I hope those AP2's come stock with DG120's!!!! I agree I'm drooling over the square leading edge of the AP2. AP3 are just terrible looking but I bet they are crazy long. Could grow on me.

    Not a fan of the new look. Performance might be great though so that's all that matters!

    I like what they've done with the trailing edge of the topline on the AP2s...appears to have been shaved off a bit to give the appearance of a thinner topline. Also think the cavity is an improvement as well as the monochrome badging gives the appearance of a more minimalistic look.

    Well done Titleist!

    Not asking sarcastically, actually curious. Where does the AP3 fit in the lineup? Between the 1 and the 2? More game-improvement than the AP1? I still don't get where the T-MB fits in either... Between the AP2 and the CB? I've seen T-MB long irons combo'ed with AP2, CB, and MB but I didn't find them any better than the AP2. I actually liked the AP2 better.

    Titleist has me all confused.

    6 iron models simultaneously makes my head spin.

    I was told they are one better than the AP2 and two better than the AP1.

    Ap3 looks like a winner. Nice middle ground between ap1 and ap2, though ap1 looks a bit more player-y than the last iteration. Don't have a bad thing to say about any of these offerings, titleist seems to have done their thing again. Great looking clubs.
  • wraynerwrayner Members Posts: 475 ✭✭
    AP2 definitely looks more blade like
  • cradd10cradd10 Members Posts: 1,288 ✭✭
    6 sets of irons......seriously? Seems like 2 or 3 need to go away. Tour Level MB, Players Cavity, mid capper hacker iron seems plenty.

    My impression is that the AP3 are positioned in between the AP1 and AP2. They could have called them AP1.5, but what's a 1.5?

    They should go head to head with Ping i200 and Callaway Apex CF 16. My guess is that the AP3's will be forged.

    Kind of reminds of Pings lineup. G series, I series and S series.

    I like the straight leading edge.

    AP2 sole looks smaller too... I wonder if it really is, or just the way it looks in the pics, especially compared to the 716's

    The C16 was forged and the AP3 doesn't seem to be, I was really hoping it would be. It will be interesting to see the specs to compare 718 AP1 and AP3 and then compare to my 716 AP1. I can only assume the AP1 got a lot bigger but it doesnt look like it from the pictures of the six together

    They all look great!
  • wraynerwrayner Members Posts: 475 ✭✭
    AP2 remind me of the old Z series that Titleist came out with a while ago

    Really like the AP2 looks but probably will cash in on mint set 716 AP2

    i wonder what lofts the ap3 will be. the ap1 43 degree 'p' wedge is silly imo.

    alot of companies also doing stupid rrp's prices at the minute. i hope titleist dont start charging the earth for their irons
  • sandysandy ClubWRX Posts: 4,996
    Way too much overlap between AP1, AP3, T-MB should be fun for sales people to try to clarify to potential customers. Good combo set 2 iron T-MB, 3, 4 iron AP1, 5-7 AP3, 8-P AP2.. sheesh!
  • HondabuffHondabuff Members Posts: 1,482 ✭✭
    AP3 looks like the love child of an AP2 and 755cb. Might actually be really good.

    I would play either of these in a heartbeat based on looks. Should be fun to try whenever that day comes.
