You may want to look in the Pre-release Forum; there's several pertinent threads there.

It felt more like an AP1 than an AP2 if that helps.

First I'd say the 3's fall right in between the AP1 & AP2 in every respect--head size,off set,sole , top line, etc. For me, its the perfect size to gain confidence over AP2, but not shovel like AP1. I was not thrilled about these being cast, but honestly the feel was NOT BAD !! Closer to AP1 than AP2 for sure, but again---right in between. Set up was very pleasing to my eye--nice top line--minimal off set in short irons---comfortable size head.
Long story short on shafts.....went with PX LZ 5.5 in my head....definitely going with AMT Black !!! Actually the numbers were quite similar with AMT White, Black, LZ 6.0, and worst was the LZ 5.5 !! The AMT Black had the best feel (lightest of the 4), solid repeatable #'s, best dispersion also. I've never been a DG S300 kind of guy so I was hesitant to even try the AMT....but these are a whole different shaft than what I anticipated for sure.
So, gonna order 5-GW AMT Black stiff--2* weak--1* flat. Think these will sell a TON for the guys who feel not quite good enough for AP2, but don't want the AP1 improvement style.

I don't use hybrids. They don't work as well for me. I had a 716 T-MB 3 iron the AP3 displaced. AP3 helped me launch higher off the turf. Any thoughts i have on the 818's won't be helpful because I was a disaster with the hybrids. They look great and it was cool to see a Tensei White and Atmos Blue shaft offering, but I didn't hit the hybrids well at all. It could have been any hybrid, I just don't hit hybrids well.

I am thinking of going AP1 6-iron (maybe even the new AP1 5-iron), AP3 7, 8, 9-iron, and keep my favorite AP2 PW.
That would be an old guy's combo set.
