The MBs and CBs are money, but I don't really care for the AP1s or AP2s.

Man alive! Why jack up the lofts on the new AP1s like that? Can't see me replacing my 712 version for 714 with those specs. Not a typical Titleist look about it either.

AP2's look incredible, I have not been this excited for any release in forever!

Thanks for sharing the link. The AP2 do look nice. You gonna pick them up?

I will give them a run assuming they don't spin too much like the 712s did during testing.

According to McGinley, there’s not much Titleist could do to improve its new 714 MB and CB irons — like blades, their small size and solid forged construction only allows subtle tweaks to be made. And even if Titleist could make them better, some of the company’s staff players would likely resist the changes.[indent]
“The only thing our tour players told was ‘Don’t screw them up,’” McGinley said. “They like them the way they are.”[/indent]
But Titleist’s new 714 AP1 and AP2 irons are a different story. Since the original AP irons were released in 2008, both have had multi-material, dual-cavity designs that give them much more forgiveness than their sizes indicate. But with every new launch, Titleist has found a way to improve the performance of the AP irons by removing weight from certain parts of the iron structure and replacing it with high-density tungsten.
Ines wouldn’t discuss the specific technology that went into the new AP irons – with the launch still several months away, company leadership feels that its too early to spill the beans. But he did provide broader clues on how the new irons have been improved.
One of the ways to make an iron better without making it bigger is to optimize the performance of each club. It’s called a progressive design, and it will give the AP1 and AP2 long irons a higher, softer flight, while the short irons will have more penetrating, controllable trajectory.
Titleist received feedback from surveys that showed golfers liked the size and shape of the 712 AP1 long irons, which are cast from 431 stainless steel, but they felt that the short irons looked clunky. So the short irons were slimmed down in the new version, especially in the address position, to give them a more compact look.
The new AP2 irons, which are forged from the same 1025 carbon steel that Titleist uses for it CB and MB irons, are very similar in size to the old model, but they have wider soles in the long irons to create a higher launch, and narrower soles in the short irons that help with turf interaction and versatility. While they have a similar amount of offset, that offset is better hidden than in previous AP2 models through a hosel blend that makes the space between the hosel and leading edge less apparent.
The construction of the new irons is not the only thing that has changed — like most new irons on the market, some of the lofts have been strengthened as well.
The 7 iron through pitching wedge has been strengthened in the AP1 irons, making the loft of the pitching wedge 44 degrees. Because of the wider gap between the AP1 pitching wedge and Titleist’s Vokey gap wedges, which are 50 and 52 degrees, the company is introducing an AP1 gap wedge that measures 48 degrees.
The AP2’s 6 iron through pitching wedge has been strengthened 1 degree, making the pitching wedge 46 degrees. Both the pitching wedges of the CB and MB irons will remain at 47 degrees for golfers who prefer traditional lofts.

Sadly I was holding off and looking to get fitted in the 714. But it seems to me that they have just hired a few TM designers and gone a little silly.

I don't get that comment at all. I mean, all 4 look about 90% similar to the 712's. Not too much to get excited about here if we're being honest.

I am an AP1 type of player, 44 PW and 48 GW is a pretty annoying setup. Anything less than a 50 degree GW is silly, IMO.

These may finally replace my original 2008 AP2's. May also be my first new, non-BST purchase.

That argument makes no sense. 44 PW and 48 GW means you literally have the same lofts as 7 years ago. Are you going to tell me lofts were silly in 2006? What's wrong with 44, 48, 52, 56, and 60?

I wonder why they wait until the fall to release them? A lot of folks up North won't purchase them until next season.

the irons look great but I'm think meh!!! At best most golfers are so dumb we don't stop to think what makes Tiger play a driver thats several generations old? some of these pga cats never change clubs. Clubs cant get much better some sound/ feel different lofts are stronger or weaker . I was on the club hoe circut for a while but its a huge waste of money by the time i was done buying and selling sticks i could have bought a new set of miura 501's . I am putting this out there get some forged irons any brand YOU like and nice putter Scotty , betinardi, etc get a driver with a good shaft ( motore speeder,black tie or whatever shaft floats your boat and be done with it. I play with guys that are scratch golfers and they all have plenty of cash and they play clubs several years old they never change . When i finally looked at there clubs i felt like a idiot I have all this new gear constanly and these cats are crushing me with ping i15 drivers old callaway x forged irons from 2000 and 1st genration taylormade burner gear. everytime you make a change in your bag you take a step back as it will take you several weeks to feel your new gear out then several more weeks to trust these new sticks .
