Titleist 714 lineup (merged) Pics Added Page 11


Recommended Posts

[color=#282828]I love Titleist but I buy Mizuno irons because they offer different head weights.[/color]

[color=#282828]I play +1/2" over standard length and this pushes TItleist CB/MB's up to D5 - which is a fairly head-centric fulcrum point. To this point Titleist hasn't offered head weights that are 6-8 grams lighter to accommodate .5-.75" over length at around D2.[/color]

[color=#282828]We'll have to see[/color]

[color=#282828](for the record Titleist AP irons are offered in various head weights) [/color]

Is it me, or do the AP2's look fatter then the previous models?

I love the look of the AP2's and the MB's... This could be a strong year for Titleist in the iron category.

i'm a little dissappointed that they messed with the lofts of the AP2's

The short irons are one degree difference... doubt anyone not on TV would even notice.

Does anybody else think the AP2'S look Japan inspired?
[/quote]

That was my first thought. I prefer the look of the 712s.

I am surprised that the lofts of the 714 AP1 are stronger from the 7 iron up but not the 4, 5, 6. Cant wait to hear why. What will be the shaft to replace the DG XP for AP1. Love my 712 AP1's but we will have to see. Glad they didn't go satin!

Shaft length creates more ball speed than strengthening lofts once you get to 30 degrees or so and most people need the additional loft (especially players interested in this style iron) to create enough launch to have separation between clubs. This is why you see a lot of SGI and GI sets start to have 5/8" or 3/4" differences between clubs in the longer irons and also why you see other OEM's have 3 degrees long irons and 4-5 degrees in the short irons. I learned this at an Advanced Fitting Seminar at one of the major OEM's that invited 30 of its fitters around the country to several months ago... pretty cool info.

I think when you give an average player a 20-21-22 degree lofted iron that you're going backwards because most players are not gonna be able to generate the speed with impact positions good enough to get an iron (which has a different CG than something like a hybrid or fairway wood) in the air and keep it in the air long enough to create consistent gaps strike to strike.

Dang. I just bought the 712 AP2s last December.

Oh well, I doubt the performance will be that different, and I agree with a couple posters that the 712s look slightly better than the 714s.

The looks of the MB and CB are pretty nice.

But i'll stick to my 710s. Nothing wrong with them.

Love the sharper bevel on the muscle in both the MB and CB. Very sexy. The AP1 got uglier, IMO, but the AP2 looks slightly improved and a bit sharper in both look and design.

Seriously people, THIS. If it's really one degree, the difference is so minimal. The clubs you are playing now could very well be one degree off from spec anyway so it's not like it's even for sure that the current loft specs you have are actually what you are really using.

Those 714s look so good. I'm going to have to unload my 712 MBs and put these in my Titleist bag.

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

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

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

I'm liking them too. These might be my xmas present unless Ping drops some S-Series irons. Gonna be an expensive fall.

Always Changing!!!
