Yes GV, it's always a worry committing to a change in shaft from a sample size of one fitting.

You'll get plenty of advice here but only you know what the feel was like.  If you trusted the fitter and that was what was advised for you, then maybe stick with the LZ.

Disclaimer;  I'm having a fitting next week so I haven't hit the new PX LZ or AMT shafts yet and am a KBS Tour S user.

The offset's for the 718 AP2 will be the same as the offset spec's on the 716 AP2.

Anyone know if you preordered the AP3 if they will ship out sooner than the 09/29 release date? Ordered on 09/02 and was curious if I would have them on 09/29 or sooner or if they would just ship out beginning on 09/29.

on Team Titleist, they said, they would ship them out, so, that pre-orders would have them by the 29th. You might check with who you ordered from, they might have shipping info.

only tried the CF16 which were clicky and thick-ish topline- I fully expect the AP3 to be way better i.e thinner topline and 'less' clicky with any luck, if they are close then its AP2 all the way

I think he was referring to the Titleist C16 concept iron. Not the Callaway CF16.

They are shipping them quickly but not sure you can actually get them until the release date. Titleist had indicated that they would fulfill orders as soon as they could so that preorders would potentially be available for pickup on the release date.

What about those of us who did drop shipping? Are you saying that these won't ship until 09/29 at the earliest?

Dunno on that one.... they may try to estimate a ship date that would get the clubs in your hands as close to the release date as possible or you may just get them early I suppose.

Anyone compare these to the 712 line? I may be "willing" to upgrade if the CB's or Ap2's are significantly better. I just need to tell the wife the 712's "wore out" and are no longer working correctly

i tried the ap3  today and fell in love when i held it.   unfortunately that's where it ended for me.    the face was way too springy.  i was getting a ball speed of 129 out of the centre and as low as 118 when caught slightly out the toe.

i went for the ap2 as the variation between the ball speeds across the face was much closer.

i also thought the ap3 was very hard feeling and felt like a crack when i hit it well.   stunning club and i desperately wanted to like it too

I'm probably the wrong person to ask as I've always been a ping "i" series player so it was my first real experience with a forged club.   it did feel nice.  almost dull feeling (in a good way) compared to the harsh "crack" i was getting with the ap3.     even though i didn't like the feel of the ap3  it wouldn't have put me off if the face was more consistent

Smaller blade length than 714 AP2. I would say similar to the 716 but a thinner top line.

Anyone know if you preordered the AP3 if they will ship out sooner than the 09/29 release date? Ordered on 09/02 and was curious if I would have them on 09/29 or sooner or if they would just ship out beginning on 09/29.

My AP2s are showing as shipped yesterday, scheduled to be delivered 9/19.  Check with your rep or store they may be able to provide tracking info.

Me too ....... I received shipping update today, my AP2 are schedule for 9/19 delivery.

That's awesome guys! What day did you order and was everything stock that you ordered?
. Ordered 8/26 mine were stock specs with custom kbs ctaper 125 and midsize grips looking forward to them

And size of the 718 AP2's ?  Smaller or same size as the 714's and 716's ?   thanks

I believe I read from OP that blade length is identical to 716, with 7 iron toe being a tiny bit higher than 716 7 iron
But... weren't the 714 an 716 the same size?
