Summary: I've used the AP2 (2 versions) for 4 years, and they are long, accurate, forgiving, quite compact at address and relatively soft. True they are not as accurate as blades. In northern Europe, playing blades would be brutal. Why punish yourself with a club that hasn't changed much in 20+ years. Sorry, I'm not into this ego, nonsense!! I would rather play consistent golf.
Summary: Recently, I purchased a pristine set of used Titleist AP 2 irons. I was purposely looking for the 710 models vs. the 712's because of personal preference. After being fitted for the appropriate shafts regarding my swing, I then searched EBay and found exactly what I was looking for. Needless to say, I saved around $500.00 vs. what they cost new. I have played 5 rounds with them now and couldn't be happier.
AWESOME IRONS!!! Can't beat the value for the money either!

Summary: These irons are solid! When I hit them for the first time, which was a 4-iron on a Par 5, I striped it to 15' for eagle! Their is nothing to dislike about these irons, LOVE THEM! The only iron I can compare these to is the Titleist 704CB's, which I felt was a solid iron as well! I feel Titleist continues to improve and this iron proves it completely! Also, this iron is even better than the 704 CB's I had and sold!
Summary: These clubs are great. There was some adjustment from a full cavity back iron I was playing before, but after I got used to them they are a difference maker. I feel more confident in every shot I hit and find that I strike the ball much better with a better and more consistent ball flight. My second time playing with them I was able to hit more greens and closer to the pin (I almost ran one in for eagle on a par 5 from about 100 yards out).
Summary: I switched from the 2008 R7 irons to these and there is no looking back. I am a 10 handicapper who wanted the forged look with the cavity feel. These also have a bit of a muscle back to them to make them more of a solid feel along with the rubber material inside for less vibration. They are more forgiving than I anticipated which is fine for those drunken rounds where your not playing seriously. I would say if your anything under 15 handicap you should try them out.
Summary: I can't believe it. Where I would use a 9 iron and I have to use the pitching widge. The 710 AP2s are the irons I have been looking for. I used to have a handicap and that was the old irons I used. Titleist gets better every year. That's the only equipment I use. I have always had a good time when out on the course. Even on bad days. Now I'm having great days. More pars and BIRDIES thanks to the irons. Thanks eBay.
