Conclusion: When choosing new irons I narrowed it down to the AP2 and the PING S55. I agree that the AP2 didn't have the feel i was looking for. It's hard to explain but solid struck shots with the AP2 felt too flush or soft and didn't feel like I had the distance control, although there was little dispersion.
Conclusion: Appreciate the review. I recently did a club fitting and narrowed it down to the 714 AP2's and the Mizuno MP-64's. Ultimately I chose the 64's but it was close and I really liked both clubs. "Balanced" is the perfect way to describe the blend of feel and forgiveness you get from the AP2's.
Conclusion: It was brought to my attention, by a source more knowledgeable than me, that I have been incorrectly referring to the 710 model as the first in the AP2 line. They originally released a version of the AP2 in 2008 and then the first update was the 710 version in 2010. Sorry for the mistake.
Summary: Thought these might be too much club for me...but like them more every time I play. Went in to my fitting not thinking about these clubs, but glad I gave them a try. Spendy...yes. But for me at least, worth every penny.
Summary: IF U R A GROWNUP PERSON AND WANT MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE and SERIOUS GOLFER. GET TITLEIST. IF UR STILL A KID THAT LIKES TO PLAY WITH SCREWS GET TAYLORMADE.MY OPINION TO ALL PEOPLE UNDER 50 THAT KNOW HOW TO PLAY.U DO NOT NEED SCREWS IF U CAN FIX IT UR SELF IT JUST DAMAGES UR SWING AND MAKES UR BODY THINK...
Pros: i have used before the 735cm's and i can feel the difference between them to my new AP2's in rough grass its easier to get the ball out and its a little more forgiving.the clubs lunch the ball mid-high and extra 15yds.the sound is great.
Cons: lets not forget its still a players 5* workability club that means that it doesnt eliminate miss hits .... its all about the players strike to the ball now and then when ur not consistent it helps but if u really dont know how to strike the ball well and work it stick to the AP1.
Summary: The verdict is still out. I am going to play them again and see how it goes. I may decide to go with a set that has 6 iron to SW and then use my Calloway H4 and H3 to make up the difference. The bottom line is I like the look and feel of the clubs and that is a big factor.
Pros: The look and feel of these clubs is real nice. The balance was also very good. I really felt good swinging these clubs and am planning to play another round before making my final decision on my purchase.
Cons: I have been looking at the Callaway x22 irons with rifle shafts and in comparing them to the Titleist AP2 I would say they are close but so far I do not think the AP2 offers as much forgiveness in miss hit shots which appear to show up more in the longer irons.
Summary: If you are looking for a little forgiveness with your irons without having to go with a game improvement clubs, I would strongly recommend giving the Titleist AP 2 a run at your course. These are great clubs Good Luck
Pros: A players club with forgiveness, the build quality, the fell and sound it makes on contact.
Cons: The profile is a bit large than what I am used to (MP33)
Conclusion: rob, it shouldnt matter what head is on the end of the shaft.. get the shaft that is best matched to your swing. If its a DG Regular on a mizuno, it should be the same for the AP2's. I did notice the AP2s hit a little higher than my mp-14's but maybe ive lost it. Flex shouldnt matter though..
