Among many kinds of golf brands, I like titleist best. Nowdays, titleist brings their new ap1 712 irons for sale and Ap2 712 irons to golfers. So today, let mr tell you the difference between them.
First, the titleist ap1 712 irons are dual-cavity irons. At address the heads look a little more compact and the topline appears thinner, but it actually is the same size, but looks smaller thanks to some extra polishing and visual tweaking. The sweetspot is not as big as the AP2s as yoiu would expect but the offset is smaller and this is an iron ideally suited to the low handicap player.
The Titleist AP1 712 irons feature two tungsten weights in the sole of the club that increases the MOI of the club without having to make the head longer. This means that it is very forgiving for its size and Titleist say the shot disperson is smaller than the previoius AP1 model. Certainly we found it to be very easy to hit and pretty forgiving, even if the trajectory was a little higher than the similar sized CB iron.
Second, the titleist ap2 712 irons are designed for low handicappers. The sound and feel at impact is excellent and the trajectory was not much higher than the AP1s. The head size is also larger and inspires a lot of confidence at address withouth appearing too chunky. The 712 AP2s are a joy to hit and the True Temper Dynamic XP shaft is light and lovely to use.
The cheap ap2 712 ironsfeature a dual tungsten weighting in the sole of the club that accounts for 20% of the overal weight of the clubhead. This increases the MOI of the club by 7% without having to make the head longer, which means that it is very forgiving for its size and Titleist claim that it has a 6% smaller disperson than the previoius AP2 model.
Indeed we can see a lot of single figure golfers using these irons or certainly blending in the longer irons with the shorter irons from the AP1 set. The AP2 irons are a great set and well worth a test if you are as Titliest say, a serious golfer, whatever your handicap.
