Titleist AP2


G.Review

Recommended Posts

My set arrived earlier this week. 9 irons (3 - W), custom fit (1/2" long and 4* upright) with the True Temper Dynamic Gold S300. I am in love! I was previously playing a set of Mizuno MP-32s, which were great. However, they will now collect dust in the garage. I really like the look of these irons. The feel is not as nice as the the MP-32, but I will gladly sacrifice a little feel for the forgiveness of the AP2.

[quote name='Burnsie' post='1954783' date='Sep 16 2009, 04:07 PM']I have played for 49 years of my 59 years and had many sets of irons. These are the best ever!!! Great look, feel, trajectory and sound. I still carry a 1.2 so I feel as though I can have a good opinion.

I know what you're saying.  I'm much the same, just turned 60, been plating for 52yrs and my index last season was 1.2, finishing at 1.8.  Played forged blades all my life.

I have the AP2's with KB Tour stiff shafts and they are just stupid silly to hit straight.  The feel isn't as pure as my MP32's, but they go so straight - to hell with feel  :yahoo:

[quote name='TheBoomer ' post='1963630' date='Sep 21 2009, 12:11 PM']I agree with the comment above with using both sets (ap2&mp-32) these are
amazing, but im also thinking about changing these reject-x shafts and trying other
stiff shafts.

Overall the best club ive played since the mp-32s (which i still have)[/quote]




You might want to try the KB Tour shafts - they are a bit pricey, but I can honestly say these are the smoothest shafts I've ever played.  I've done the S300's, S300SL's, PX 5.5's and the KBT is the best yet.


I ordered mine through Dana Upshaw, the KBT's were IIRC, a $15 upgrade, and I also wanted Lamkin grips.  Titty Custom Shop had them done in about 3 weeks.

i'm a 2 handicap and here is my review of the ap2 irons
i have the the project x 5.5 in mine and after 10 rounds here are the plus and negatives....
+ great feel
+ nice high ball flight
+ work left or right high or low
+ easy to look at
_ inconsistent distances
_ weird ball flights (alot of knuckle balls)specially in the long irons.... very strange!
_ horrible wind clubs
_ spins the ball way to much

i will stick with these for awhile longer but they will be gone soon...

You are right on the money. I am a solid 4-5 handicap and had exactly the same results. The most frustrating for me what the inconsistant distances. Other AP2 owners I have talked with say the same thing. I also had bad gap differances between my wedge and 9 iron. Took the set in to get checked and every single club was off for either loft or lie. Once corrected they hit very nicely but sitll have most of the issues you have mentioned. I am now trying Ping i15 irons. Not forged, but more consistant distance control.

I am currently on my second set of AP2s second generation 710s, left handed with DG S300s and these irons feel fine, not great like my Mizuno MP 68s or my Callaway Muscleback Razr X's but real solid when flushed and they fly sooo straight! I am also able to work the ball some though snap hooks and large fades are very hard to pull off. I generally play a fairly straight ball with either a slight draw or slight fade as the shot calls for. I will be keeping these clubs this time!!!! :good:

Wow Fantastic clubs. I'm switching from Ping Anser's as I thought those felt good but they don't compare to my new AP2's. I got graphite design i65 shafts custom fitted as these are easy to hit straight, & starting to work the ball a bit both ways as I only had these out for 3 rounds but I'm wanting to get out everyday now. Getting use to the lighter feel due to the graphite shafts but even on my misses the hold their line pretty good with maybe 8-10 yds less. Talk about a nice feel when struck correctly as I can see these club will help me to become a much better ball striker. I'm hitting as many GIR as I always did but the confidence factor is higher as I found myself a couple of time shooting for the pin that was tucked away in a corner over a bunker some 160 yds + away. Talk about a big smile as I highly suggest everyone should give these a try last when looking for a new set as it wouldn't surprise me if you walk away owning a new set of AP2's...they are that good.

Did anyone tried AP2 with graphite shaft?
[/quote] Yes I have the Graphite Design i65 reg. & absolutely love them. I'm coming from steel so I need to slow my swing down but getting the accuracy & distance I was expecting to get. My new favorite set

Hi guys, I currently play the 1st generation AP2s and I am happy with them. Have had them now going on 4 yrs, so time for me to get a set set of irons. Still very interested in the 712 AP2s, but was a little intrigued by the new offerings from Adams (CMB Foged) and or Scratch's AR or EZ 1s. I am a 7 handicap and a pretty solid iron player. Will probably still go with the AP2s (maybe change from DG S300 to the KBS C Tapers).

Any input would be greatly appreciated as I greatly respect the reviews from my fellow WRXers.

God Bless,

TK

These irons are great. I've been testing a set of 712 AP2s (I am a 4 handicap currently, have been playing blades ever since I can remember) and absolutely love the ball flights from these irons.

In fact, I would argue that these irons are easier to "work the ball" than my blade irons due to the forgiveness on mis-hits.

I tried the 712 AP2 last season and didn't get on with them in a fitting. This years clubs look way better in terms of finish and address to me. The heads felt heavier too. Getting fitted at Titleist in 2 days so will let you know what my findings are then. I definitely want these but the fitter may say otherwise.

Fitted yesterday and LOVED the AP2 714's. A definite improvement on the 712's. I compared them to my Mizuno MP-53's and couldn't believe that the feel off the face was smoother on the AP2's. Miss hits still went straight with no loss in distance either. I'm off today to order mine. I'd recommend the new AP's. The CB and MB irons were much the same but will probably be different with the new sole grind on real turf.
