I hit them at a demo day about a month ago. It didn't have the normal shaft in it that I play with, but I wasn't blown away. For the price, my AP2's felt better and C16's didn't seem worth the extra ~$1500.

Had the 716 AP2s with Aldila Proto T graphite shaft. Had owned original AP2s & 712s irons. Sold my 716s and splurged for the C16s. C16s are like AP1.5s. Long & very forgiving. I have the Kuro Kage 85 gram graphites in mine. Liked my 712s, liked my 716s, but the C16s are the best move I ever made.

The C16 seem to be a perfect blend between the AP1s & the AP2. I suspect that the "concept" C16 prototype will eventually end up in the '18s, either in the AP1s or AP2s. Doubt there will actually be an AP1.5 to market in November. I do know the '18s are a big secret. The C16s were just what I needed, even though I really liked the AP2s and could have played them forever.

I had the 716 AP1 & AP2's and the C16's. Bootheal Bear put it best, the C16 feel like a combination of the best of the AP1 & AP2. I've had my C16's for almost a year and I still love them. Long and forgiving, they have a great forged feel of the AP2's with the loft and offset of the AP1's. Couldn't be happier with my decision. I also tried the Callaway APEX C16 combo and these still won hands down. The faces still almost look brand new after a year, unlike Callaway's where after 2 rounds they look like they're a couple of years old.
