Ian Poulter spills the beans on Titleist’s AP3, 718 irons

Published

on

Thank you, Ian Poulter. That’s how Titleist fans are feeling toward the Ryder Cup hero for spilling the beans on Titleist’s new 718 iron lineup, which looks to include an all-new model called the 718 AP3. His photos, which were posted on his Instagram account, also include photos of what appear to be the new 718 T-MB, 718 AP2 irons.

As in past years, Titleist is expected to officially release its newest equipment to PGA Tour players at next week’s Quicken Loans National. We’ll have our boots on the ground to capture more images of the clubs, which will allow us to make better educated guesses about the design of the all-new AP3.

For now, enjoy speculating on what Poulter posted below. You can see what GolfWRX Members are saying about the clubs in our forum here.

    I think this time around its time to simply mix and match clubs to go in the bag. Looking forward to the fall the dial in on these. Curious to read about the testing.

    I still like the looks of the old 714’s the best.

    I think they could be a more forgiving long iron along the lines of the t-Mb but geared towards people not wanting hybrids or t-mb to replace the stock ap2 long irons. The sole looks super deep as wide as the t-mb. Don’t think I’ll love them at first look.

    I seriously went to Titleist site to peek at this years models because those don’t look like the new 718 range. Just judging by looks the Ap2s look like a throwback to the 914 model. The AP3s have a newer style but I am not stunned. Hope the CBs will look nicer.

    In logic the AP3 should be more along the lines of the CB model. As all prior AP2 are more player geared than AP1. So it would only make sense that for AP3 would have a more better player geared design and look. I think if Titleist did away with the CB and made the AP3 more like prior CB designs they would sell more of the CB type design. So basically what I’m saying is change the CB name to AP3 and there you go. Shake things up a bit.

    Well done, Wilson Golf, I like what you’ve done with the new version of the FG6

    Looks a little like a cross between the AP 1 and AP2 (1+2 =3).

    718 MB irons hiding in the background as well. Not sure how the ap3 are more players clubs than ap2? The cavity looks pretty deep.

    Looks like someone has copied from Mizuno .Just added chrome and a different badge .

      Looks nothing like a Mizuno iron. Looks like the color of the 714 with the design of the 716.

      everything looks like a Mizuno…even my dogs collar.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Best ball for players with slower swing speeds?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from ghoul31 who created a thread dedicated to finding the ideal golf ball for players with slower swing speeds. Our members have their say on what is the ball most suited to slower swing speeds, with a variety of models receiving a mention.

Here are a few posts from the thread but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Hogan9: “My SS is 80 to 85. I play the Titleist AVX. Many people on these forums tell it’s wrong for me. I’ve tried several brands and types over the last year ( Pro-V-1 and 1X, Cally Supersoft and Chrome Soft, TM TP5X, Wilson Duo Soft and the Snell MTB. The AVX gives me the best overall performance for my game. I’ve had to slightly adjust to how it reacts on chips and pitches, but the extra distance off the tee is well worth it. “
  • North Butte: “Maybe 90mph driver swing on a good day. Driver 205-ish hit 6-iron from 150. Pro V1x but I have played AVX, B330, TP5 with pretty much similar results to my favorite V1x. Also played the Chrome Soft for a while but it seemed to fly a little low and sometimes have trouble holding greens (or maybe I just didn’t give it a long enough chance to know for sure).”
  • Hat Trick: “Pro V1X – Spin and higher launch keeps it in the air longer, but at the same time that spin holds the greens – SS 96-98 mph.”
  • Kmac: “My SS is right around 95-100, and I find the QST to the perfect for my game. I will also play the AVX or Chrome Soft Truvis. But for the money, nothing beats the QST.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “Single length irons stunting development?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from rbark11 who has sparked an interesting debate over single length irons in our forums. Rbark11 has been playing single length irons for the past seven months, and he is concerned that he may have issues changing back to regular length irons. Our members give their take on the matter, as well as discussing single length irons in general.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • mcs4: “No, it will not. Both my father and I are currently playing Cobra One Length irons after decades of playing variable length irons. It took both of us maybe a few rounds to feel comfortable with the switch. This weekend I played a round with my old irons, and it was different but not a big deal. My opinion is that there are pros and cons with each approach, but I don’t think picking one will make any particular negative impact on your ability to later switch to the other.”
  • Quadra: “I’ve played both. Right now I am back to VL clubs ( Wishon 560 irons). Find VL gives me more shot-making options. With uneven lies, especially with the ball above or below foot level, the shot seems easier with a more upright or flatter lie, rather than trying to manipulate a shot from clubs with only a single length/lie. VL = more shot possibilities.”
  • Aucaveman: “I played Cobra ftbo for a year. Shot my best scores ever. Our club switched to Mizuno exclusively, so I had my first real fitting. I switched to the 919 forged and had to sell the Cobras to fund the mizunos. Really wished I hadn’t. I really liked the Cobras. The shafts in the Mizuno’s are better suited for me but had I put the same shafts in the Cobras; I’d prob been better off. At some point, I’ll prob do it and go back to one lengths. I was perusing eBay yesterday actually.”
  • Brandons68: “I think that the consistency you gain from SL irons is pretty great. I have not played them personally, but have talked to several people that have, and they really like the feel of the irons and the fact that they swing every iron the same because they are all the same length.”
