As we all know that Titleist released 2 sets of golf clubs for sale at one time on late 2015. To follow the function of previous old 714 series, this time, Titleist launched new updating 716 series irons which include Titleist AP1 716 Irons and Titleist AP2 716 Irons intotal 2 molders. However, they are very close to each other so that we always find it difficult to make a decision which to choose.
The first points to make are the differences between the two without hitting a shot. The Titleist AP1 716 Irons for Sale UK has a larger overall size, longer blade length, thicker top line and more offset compared to the Titleist AP2 716 Irons for Sale UK. The AP1 has a higher MOI and is on average 3° stronger through the set but both have the same stock shaft length.
The AP1 3-7 irons have 42g of tungsten on average, 50% more than 714 while the AP2 3-7 irons have 56g of tungsten on average, 25% more than 714. In terms of feel, the Titleist AP2 716 Irons feel a little softer than Titleist AP1 716 Irons down to the co-forging process but also because AP1 is geared more towards distance and has a feel to match that.
Where both irons excel is the distance control on offer. Both AP1 and AP2 offer very tight levels of distance consistency from front-to-back on both well-struck shots and slight mishits while maintaining a high level of accuracy. Shots that you would expect to miss the green may now find the putting surface.
The Titleist AP1 716 Irons will generate more distance, that’s a fact. If you have ever tested the irons, you would find that this equated to around 6-7 yards in the 7-iron and this increase was pretty consistent through the set. There’s also no doubt the Titleist AP1 716 Irons are more confidence inspiring behind the ball and is generally easier to hit.
Actually, in my opinion, Titleist AP1 716 Irons would be better for those who demand different feel and want some change. However, if you want more of a traditional looking iron and are more worried about feel and distance control, the AP2 should be your choice.
