I specified use of "lighter heads" on my order (+1/2") to bring SW in at D3/D2.  Have had clubs for about 3 weeks now, but no opportunity to test them out due to back issues or to get them on a scale.

Just swinging them lightly around the house (about all I can do is 3/4 ish half speed swings, but they don't feel "heavy" to me.

While on the phone with Titleist about a Vokey wedge question I was also told that they have "light" and  "heavy" heads for their clubs like the AP2 but not for Vokey wedges.  Not sure if they are manufactured this way or if they are just sorted by weight after manufacture but I found it interesting.

I wish I would have known this. My SW is D1.5 on all my irons. Not liking that aspect about them. Way too light for me.

Snagy, which irons are you referring to and do you have?  The 718 AP2 or AP3?

AP2

AP2

I am going to order my AP2 with a D3.5 - D4 swing weight.  This feels best for me because its what I had all my golfing career.

can't wait to try out the ap2s... heard the 718 CBs are just as forgiving as the 716AP2s, so I might go with those.

I was told by my sales rep that they are longer with same specs as the last ones due to new technology.

So after the TT Trial Event and a local fitting, I've got my set on order. It's not the combo that most on here are choosing. But for me the AP1 was just so forgiving and long, it would have been foolish to not have some of them in the bag, and the AP2 will do very nicely at the end of the bag.

So I have on order:

AP1 4-7 with the AMT Red shaft +1/2 and 3 degrees upright.
AP2 7-P with the same shaft and specs.

Why 2 7 irons you may ask? Due to loft differences, it worked out perfect, the AP1 7 is 30 degrees, and the AP2 is 34 degrees, with the 9 at 42 and P at 46, which leads perfectly into my SM6's which are 50,54 and 58.

Really looking forward to getting them in play.

AP1 7-iron is 30*; AP2 7-iron is 34*.  You have quoted the lofts for the 8-irons.

However, I see what you are up to there.

One of the nice things about playing a combo set of AP1 712 and AP2 714 is that the lofts are the same for each set.  If I were to change, I would go AP1 (718) 6-iron, AP3 7-iron to 9-iron, and AP2 (714) PW.  I can deal with the gaps.

You are right, that's because I orignally was going to go with the two 8's but decided to move it down to 7, and still had the 8 lofts on my mind.  Thanks for catching that, I'll edit it now.  

I went in really wanting a full set of the AP3's and just didn't love them and wasn't hitting them consistently.  So then I tired the AP and loved them.  Was going to go full AP1 when the a fitter buddy of mine told me try the 2's and I was able to handle them fine.   Not too dissimilar to my Srixon 765 in the 8-P.    So that's how I ended up this route.

Ordered one AP2 set and one AP3 set.

Titleist just called me and said they could build my AP2 set to my specs, but the AP3 set they could only bring down the swing weight to D3. But if they were allowed to change to another grip than I ordered they could get them down to D2.

That's what I call service and quality! I bet many other companies just had built the club to the specs I specified and then sent to me with swing weight D3 and "hope for the best".

Got my tmb from titleist yesterday. Straight to the course with it, no adjustment time with it just straight up killing it. To me, looks like maybe a tiny bit more offset and slightly lower flight. Pairs lovely with pxi 6.5. Crackin club very versatile

Very interested in getting a set of Titleist 718 Ap2. Can anyone here compare the feel to the 714? Used to game those and if these feel better than them they could be a winner next season.

Received my 2 T-MB the other day but have not hit it yet. First impression was WAY more offset even though Titleist says offset is the same as the 716 T-MB. I'm thinking the hosel blend is the culprit to why I see/feel there is more offset though. I got mine with the Tour V X FWIW.

I would love to hear from loyal AP2 players how the 716 plays compared to
The new 718.  I am wanting to replace my 10 yr old Mizuno a w a set of AP2. Any feedback on the 716?? I recently hit the 718 and it feels and performed great . I have MP60s w S300 shafts

This is a broader rant on the club companies, but for this thread specifically on Titleist AP3s and AP1s...

Understand the long irons perfectly fine, but what is the point of a 43* pitching wedge? Here's my new marketing idea, I'll make a super high end set that starts at 25* and drops 1 degree per club. Guaranteed 40 yards farther on your 9 iron.

the pw is 3 degrees stronger than the ap2 yet it launches exactly the same as the ap2 at 25.7 degrees.  check out the rick shiels review.    how else can they keep the launch down?    golfers can't ask for a forgiving iron and then moan thats the loft is too low.   they have strong lofts for a reason.  how many times do people need to hear this

Played 3 rounds with mine now and loving them.  AP1 4 & 5, AP3 6-48 with PX 6.0 Rifles, great straight flight and good distance. Actually shot level with my handicap each and that was with hitting my driver like a wanker, get that back this weekend with an inch off the shaft and a new grip to hopefully sort that out.

I didn't notice the heads being heavy but a few of the members that have picked them up have commented on them feeling heavy.

Had my fitting for the 718s today at the National Fitting Centre in the UK.
Have played the 712 AP2 with DG S300, and currently have the 714 AP2 which started off with KBS Tour S, and a year or so back switched those shafts out for DG XP 105 stiff.
Both of these sets did not involve professional fitting, and were standard loft, lie & length.
Anyway today I have left the fitting and ordered the following;
718 AP3
4-PW
Plus the AP3 gap wedge
Project X LX 6.0 stiff
1/2 inch longer
1 Deg flat

Looking forward to getting them on the course & hoping to get my 4.5 handicap back down nearer to where it was 2 years ago at 2.6.

A true novice question

as stated in a previous post on this thread, I’m pretty ignorant when it comes to the technical talk of shafts, lie angles etc... I received my first professional fitting and was fitted with the Modus 3 Tour 105 shafts. I really love how my new AP3’s have performed two rounds in. Can someone tell me what this shaft even represents? I don’t see it mentioned at all in this long thread.

A true novice question

as stated in a previous post on this thread, I’m pretty ignorant when it comes to the technical talk of shafts, lie angles etc... I received my first professional fitting and was fitted with the Modus 3 Tour 105 shafts. I really love how my new AP3’s have performed two rounds in. Can someone tell me what this shaft even represents? I don’t see it mentioned at all in this long thread.

It's a lighter weight mid spin, mid launch shaft. A very solid choice for many golfers imho.

AP2 vs CB,  CB won’t be as forgiving on Mishits and most likely won’t go as long .  I compared the AP2 today to my current MP60 irons and the AP flew 3 to 6 yards further. On occasion I hit a couple like 8 to 10 yds further . There must be a hot spot in the face. I like the 718 AP2. I also like the stock AMT shaft.

I had 718 AP2 and now 718 CB and if anything, for me though, the CB is going further. I will say as a disclaimer they had completely different shafts though.

I took SamPGA1976's advice and hit the AP3 5-iron with Pro V1s tonight.  Also reshafted it with Steelfiber i95, one of my favorite Shafts.  

These two things really helped to make the AP3 shine.  Still a little clicky at impact, but that doesn't bother me.   The harshness I experienced earlier hitting range balls is gone.  

I really like the performance of this iron and I'm going to order a whole set.

I have been playing AP3s with Steelfiber i95s the last 3 weeks.  Every time I play these irons, I like them more.  They have a great trajectory, above average distance, and solid forgiveness.  I thought these were pretty harsh feeling with the stock AMTs, but the Steelfibers have helped them come alive.

Has anyone picked up an AP3 3i to use as a DI or extended your set to 3i where you typically play a hybrid?  I just got mine in and am looking forward to getting it out to the course.

I have a TMB 4i now and looking forward to comparing the two.  If I move to a full set of 718, will likely combo 2/3 off the 5i.

I've been playing AP2s for years now.  2 different sets.  Now at age 64, with a bad back, I decided to move on from my 714 AP2s to the new AP3s. They arrived yesterday. Project X rifle shafts in 6.0, 2 degree upright with medium Tour Velvet grips.... Damn these things are sex on a shaft!  Can't wait to play them tomorrow.
