As always this site has the goods!

I'm not a fan of the irons though.  :cheesy:  I imagine they will sell well because so many people want to play Titleist that have no business doing it. Any word on a price point on these?

EDIT: I would like to see more shots of the combo set please.

Hmmm...When did Titleist get into the yard tool business?

Those are some serious shovels.  Do you think Home Depot will pick up a Titleist account?


Not for me, but I'm sure many folks will be all over these.

Can't say I have seen a Titleist iron with that thick of a top line.  From setup they don't look too bad to me, seems to be a minimal amount of offset with a nice shape, but the cavity area looks to busy to me.  Not to sound petty but I want something that looks good at address and in my golf bag.

I'm suprised at how thick the topline is.  That isn't what I think of when I think Titleist.  The address pics kind of remind me of my old Callaway irons with a little less offset.

Edit:  I want to see the combo set too!

AP1s are cast irons.  They are entry level performance irons.  I will go into more later.  Titleist is very aware that they went out of the box with this design but, they think ultimately its about feel and performance and they say that both of those factors cannot be denied by anyone whose tried them.  The AP2s I will post shortly and they expect that to be in the majority of better player's bags.  There is also a reason behind the the thicker topline but, I've posted pictures of the ZM and I think those irons are targeted to those here who are use to the thin toplines.  Also, don't worry, the the 695CBs will still be orderable via Special Order.  MB are replaced by ZM.

I think these will be very successful, Titty needed a set like this in the line-up.  They do look a little chunky, but so do other iron sets in this niche.  I actually like the cast construction too.

they look like my OS2 from address
its quite uncharacteristic of titleist to produce shovels like these
i guess it would mean that higher hcp players will get an opportunity to play titleist clubs
since titleist have marketed themselves to be more 'players' focused

thanks for the photos gxgolfer!

This is being touted as the dominant Titleist iron on all Tours next year.  Meaning that Pros and staffers that have tried it can't find anything wrong with it supposedly.

I am working on an article that will release specifics but, they are "premium" irons ala Callaway X forged.

Those look heaps better then the AP1s. I don't understand why they called these 2s and the AP1s 1s, i think it should be the other way around. Anyways, hopefully they play a little better then they look, just don't like that roundedness they've gone for, looks very callaway x series to me :cheesy:
