  1. 710 AP1's. 5 years. I installed KBS shafts, soft stepped, and put in Sensicore inserts. Best irons ever!
  2. See Sig. 915 driver replaced the 913. Can't replace the TM R-15 Ti fairways. Still the best I've ever hit
  3. [quote name='vsteel1991' timestamp='1430325485' post='11466239'] 710 ap1's i've hit irons that feel similar but nothing i felt were better. if it aint broke don't fix it [/quote] Amen to that. I bought the 714 AP1's last year and played them for two weeks. My trusty 710's went bag in the bag and that's where they'll stay. Luckily they forgave me. They are still the best feeling, and most consistent iron I've ever hit. I can't imagine ever playing anything else. I have a back up set just in case.
  4. Haven't tried the Project A yet, but TM is selling the "Lethals" in 20 and 50 box packs right now cheap so I stocked up big. For me, they play equal in distance to the Pro V1x, spin nice around the green and feel great off the putter. Reading what others are saying here about the Project "A" I'll have to give them a try.
  5. TM R-11 -with stock speeder. Always performs as expected. Though the new 915 D2 keeps dead even pace with it.
  6. I just received my 915 D2. It has the Rogue Black 60, S-flex. That shaft seemed a little whippy to me, more like a soft stiff, but I hit it great - high fades which is what I prefer to play. It is definitely weaker than the Tour Green I was fitted for last year in my 913 D2. I liked the specs on the Rogue and wanted a shaft with a lower bend point but I was a little nervous about the feel (softness) of it when I got it. I really thought I'd be blowing this thing all over the place when I took it out to the course. However, it was incredibly consistent, whether I swung it smooth, or jumped on it. So it may be that your "X" plays more like an S+
  7. [color=#282828]I still play my 710 AP1's 4-gap, best irons I've ever owned. Bought the 714's last year but didn't hit them as good as the 710's, and luckily they forgave me. Have the 913D2 Aldila Tour Green since last year. I got the 915H - 24 degree this year and was able to hit it on a trip down in Florida last week. Wow! This thing is a rocket launcher. I was a little worried when I got it (for my birthday - thank you to my wife!) as I ordered the Rogue stiff, thinking it would be typical Aldila and play weaker. It is much firmer than I thought it would be, but it played beautifully. It is easily 10 yards longer than the 910H I was playing, and more importantly for me it sets up square at address, unlike the 910, which had a draw bias. I could shape the 915 right or left, high or low, and was able to hit it off of virtually any lie. Great feel and sound. [/color]
  8. I'm not a brand loyalist and have had the R-11 "Ti" 3, 5 and 7 woods in my bag for 3 years. These things are the longest, most workable and most forgiving fairway woods I've ever hit. I even bought back ups for all three in the event something happens to them. :-)
  9. [quote name='WolfWRX' timestamp='1425215928' post='11052539'] I read an [url="http://pluggedingolf.com/titleist-915h-hybrid-review/"]online reivew[/url] that indicated the 915H 'loses a significant amount of distance on off centre hits'. Are users finding that to be the case? I'm not sure why this would be so when the reviews of the fairway woods, which utilise the same technology, say the exact opposite. [/quote] I didn't find that at all. And I found it much harder to hit it off center than the 910.

    910h vs 915h?

  13. [color=#282828]I had the 710 AP1's in my bag for the first year and liked them a lot. I switched the stock shafts with KBS tour 90's, stiff, (soft stepped) in the second year. I also put in sensicore. Then I really loved them. I didn't like the look of the 712's as much, so I never tried them. I liked the look of the 714's and bought them. Hit them ok, but they never felt as strong as the 710's, and I was never as consistent with them. They claimed they were longer, but I never saw any distance increase. I put in several different shafts, but still never thought they measured up to the 710's, so I went back to those. Luckily, they forgave me. I was fortunate enough to find another set in new condition on fleabay. They had senior graphites in them. Pulled them and set them up with KBS shafts, just like my original set. So I have a nice back-up set. The 710 AP1's are great irons. They are still the most awesome looking and most solid feeling irons I've ever hit, for me at least. I can't imagine changing to something else anytime soon. I'm setting up the 714's for my 15 year old.[/color]

  15. I had the 910 D-2 in my bag for a month when they first came out. Tried several different shafts, and dispersion was not very tight. I was inconsistent with it. Went with a Taylor Made R-11 and hit it great for two years, but decided to give the 913 D-2 a try when it went on close out pricing last August for $250. Got it with the Aldila Tour Green shaft and loved it. Good length and much tighter dispersion. The 913 sets up more square than the 910, which always seemed to look like it was in "draw" mode, when I looked down at it, regardless of the setting. I like to look down and see a square face, or even slightly open. I did like the sound of the 910 better, but I like the performance of the 913 much better, so I bought another one for back up. I love the Aldila Tour Green shaft. Performs very similar to the NV-65, which worked well for me back when I gamed a Ping G-2. I'm sure I'll try the 915, but from what I'm reading here and elsewhere, looks like any improvement will be minimal.
  16. I'm a Ping guy.............not a Titleist guy...............but I stumbled upon a 913 D2 w/Aldila Green Tour that seems to be a pefect fit for me. Dumb luck but it's the best driver I've had in years. I look forward to trying the 915 but this 913 setup is a good one for me. Similar for me. I had the 910 D-2 in my bag for a month. Tried several different shafts, and dispersion was not very tight.

  17. Very similar to me. I had the 910-D2 and D3. Good distance but dispersion was all over. Went to the Taylor Made R1. Loved it, and gamed it for a year but tried the 913 D-2 last August when it was being closed out at $299. Got it with the Aldila Trinity (tour green) and loved it. Much better control and more consistent than the 910, for me. So I bought a two. Now of course I'm dying to try the 915, but from what I'm reading, I'm probably not going to gain anything. I'll try to hold out, at least until it drops in price - just before the 917 comes out.

  19. I had not played the 970's before. I had the 105t's in my set of 710's originally. They had a similar feel, but a little too soft in the tip. Hit them a little too high and had less control, so I pulled them and put in KBS tours. I did like those. I picked the 970's for these based on the specs of a a slightly firmer tip, mid launch, and after reading some reviews on them. Based on the one round at least, I like them.
  20. Ooops, I kept hitting 9 instead of 7. All fixed.
  21. Got my new 714 AP1's on Weds. Initial impressions are excellent. I've been using the 710 AP1's for the past three years and have loved them. I didn't see enough of a difference in the 712's to make a switch. These on the other hand seemed like a real re-design and worth a shot. I'm 55 years old and a 9 handicap. I ordered these with the NS Pro 970 shafts, Stiff flex and soft stepped. Right out of the box I loved the look of them. The satin finish looks great. The faces give the impression of being a little thinner than my 710's at address, and maybe a tad longer from heel to toe. I was lucky enough to have a 60 degree day here in Central PA on Weds when they arrived, so out to the course I went. Hadn't played in over a month, so I wasn't expecting much. I just wanted to get a sense for feel and launch. Due to carpal issues in my wrists, I had put sensicore inserts in my 710's, so I anticipated a slightly harsher feel with these new 714's. First swing from the fairway with a 9 iron, I was quite surprised. A nice high launch - higher than expected, and straight. And the feel was really smooth, no harshness at all. A few more balls with the 9 iron from the same spot and I got the same result - high, and dead straight. Nice! On the second hole I had an 8 iron in, and got the same result. Third hole, par 3, a 7 iron and again, the same shot, same feel. I dropped a few balls on the next fairway, par 5 and hit some 5 and 6 irons. No problem. Even hitting a few of them a little off the toe, I didn't lose much distance, and still hit them straight. While Titleist has tweaked the lofts on the 7 thru wedge 1 degree, I didn't notice any more distance. Though strengthening them 1 degree would only gain a few yards anyway. And it may be that the cool weather and breeze, and the sweater I was wearing might have contributed to not gaining any distance. I didn't have my 710's with me to do an A/B test to compare. That will have to wait until next Spring I suppose, as I'm not confident of another 60 degree day here until then. But from this initial testing I am really happy with the 714's. They are a great looking iron, with a players look at address. They have a great feel throughout the set, and are very forgiving. I think Titleist hit a home run with these.
  22. [quote name='Marks23' timestamp='1380930940' post='7954351'] [quote name='bjackson' timestamp='1380825549' post='7948393'] [quote name='sheldonjhacker' timestamp='1380824552' post='7948321'] anyone hit both the AP1 and 2 ? how forgiving is the new AP2 ? [/quote] I've hit all four sets from the 714 line. The AP1 is like cheating. The AP2 is very forgiving (more so than the 712 version) while retaining the same head size. [/quote] Is the 714 ap1 that much better over the 712 predecessor? [/quote] What shaft type and flex were you hitting in the AP1's? I'm ready to order those as soon as I am able. Not sure which shaft to go with. I have KBS Tour regular in my 710 AP1's. Not sure if I want the new TT95's or the Nippon 970's.
  23. Well, Ping finally replied to my question, and they said "All of our clubs have a .350 hosel." Interesting. Apparently the after market adaptors come in two flavors - .335 or .350 internal to handle both types of shafts, but both must have the same outside diameter, and maybe that is .350. I guess I'll know soon enough, as the club, and the shafts and adaptors will be here at the end of the week. I know the Titliest 910D aftermarket shaft adaptors come in two different sizes for .335 and .350 shafts, as I've done both of those.
  24. Good deal. Thought so, but wanted to make sure before I bought the shaft and the adaptor. The adaptors are going for ridiculous prices out there right now. Probably cost 10 cents to make in China. Thanks for the confirmation!
