Ping iBlade - easily the most aesthetically pleasing of the irons listed. Feels great, hydro-pearl finish (along with being a cast iron) keeps bag chatter to a minimum. If I didn't play Apex MB's I'd be playing iBlade's.

Titleist 718AP2 - the perennial favorite among Titleist staffers for good reason. All of the technology of a CB in a thin, pleasing package. Looks sharp, feels crisp.

Titleist 718CB - The lost middle child between AP2 and MB. Probably the most underrated offering in Titleist's line year in and year out. I think if more people who were leaning toward AP2's or T-MB's gave the CB a chance, they'd end up playing them.

Kinda wish JPX900 Tour's came out in '18 so they could dominate this post. Best players iron I've hit.

The FG Tour V6 is #1 for me. I have played them for 2 seasons and they are everything you could want in a players iron.

The King Forged Tour are second, very playable, accurate, and more forgiveness than i expected from them.

The 718 CB is 3rd, just solid clubs.

It would take a heck of a complete iron to remove AP2's from my bag. What more could one want?

Iíd love to know what irons are actually in the bag, being played. By this pole and the blade pole, Mizuno are dominating the market. But I wouldnít of thought they actually have the sales to match these stats.

I am sure this is true.  I have the FG Tour V4's after playing MP 33's for at least a dozen years followed by the Ping S55's for a year and the MP 4's for a couple years.

I found the FG V4's to be great clubs - won two club championships with them.  I believe the latest Wilsons are vastly under appreciated.

While not good enough to play them, love the looks of the PXG 0311T irons , intriguing and costly.

Bear in mind that of the golfing public, a very small subset participates in the various online forums.  WRX is hardly a representative sample of the population.

Put another way, no statistician worth his salt would base a study on responses from the golf forums.

Ap2ís all the way. Iíve had them for about 6 months ago and if titleist stays consistent with how they make them, Iíll never switch. It like cutting through butter with a hot knife. They also allow for excellent shot shaping

The iblades were my second just because of the soft feeling to the ball. I only used them during a fitting but they were a close second to the ap2ís

Titleist cannot compete with the softness of Mizuno and Endo Forging... period.

They are crisp but clicky... always have been and I don't see that changing.  That said, they do perform well, as seen and proven on Tour weekly. You do need to be a rather good ball striker to get full performance from AP2s...there are at least 4 sets of Player CBs that are more forgiving; 750s, J15CB, X-Forged, and 745s to name a few.

Ironically, those same four sets are also softer. 😏

iblades aren't soft, they have a unique feeling into the ball but it's not soft. Yes, mizuno do feel softer than a titleist but I've found, most shots you can't much. Titleist has the edge in the looks department compared to mizzy though esp short irons. P750 is def not more forgiving than ap2, ap2 are very forgiving for a players iron, probably one of the most on this list but turf interaction can be a bit clunky

Saying iBlades arenít soft is essentially labeling yourself as someone who will never give a cast iron a chance. iBlades are soft. Are they are soft as a Mizuno? No. But nothing really is. Are they as soft as my AP2ís? Yes. iBlades are incredible clubs and I would game them in a heartbeat.

Iíve had iblades in the bag for 2 years now, lol. They arenít soft, they have a unique feeling at impact, itís not bad but itís certainly not soft. Btw and I have played cast irons that felt soft

Mizuno MP18 SC are some of the best irons I've hit in a while.  

Ping iBlade are my second choice. If Mizuno didn't bring out the MP18 line I would have got the Ping iBlades.

Ap2ís all the way. Iíve had them for about 6 months ago and if titleist stays consistent with how they make them, Iíll never switch. It like cutting through butter with a hot knife. They also allow for excellent shot shaping

The iblades were my second just because of the soft feeling to the ball. I only used them during a fitting but they were a close second to the ap2ís


Titleist cannot compete with the softness of Mizuno and Endo Forging... period.

They are crisp but clicky... always have been and I don't see that changing.  That said, they do perform well, as seen and proven on Tour weekly. You do need to be a rather good ball striker to get full performance from AP2s...there are at least 4 sets of Player CBs that are more forgiving; 750s, J15CB, X-Forged, and 745s to name a few.

Ironically, those same four sets are also softer. 😏

I think the Ap2ís fit my general misses pretty well. I usually miss toe, and thatís where they have forgiveness.

Now for heel shots, thereís almost no forgiveness. Sheís going right, and hard.

I personally like the clock though.

The iBlades get my vote. Easy to hit, and very workable.

The fact that I'm playing them has nothing to do with my vote of course. ;)
I'm not suggesting we kill all the stupid people, I'm just suggesting we remove all the warning labels and let the situation resolve itself.

PXG 0311Ts get my vote.  Long time Titleist CB/MB combo player and did a PXG fitting at my club and they were amazing.  With the new Heros program, I may be able to afford them.

Idk what it is, but i hit the P770 irons so well. I'm a Titleist guy, and love the AP2s especially the 718, but i just can't justify switching from my P770 right now. I do need stiffer shafts however so maybeeeeee lol

OK
Very authoritative answer BUT, Golf Digest calls both of them players irons.  The number six player on the PGA tour plays one of them.  I guess you can call them what you want but they are still categorized by major publications as players irons and I consider Spieth a player and he uses one SO...they are players irons :-))

Mizuno mp 18 sc.   feels better than ap2 with forgiveness.   The look is classic and pure.   Steel is softer.  Ap2 although looks better than old it played the same.

Ended up making the switch to AP2s since i wanted stiffer shafts. Unreal feeling and look to these irons. Tested all the Mizuno stuff as well, kept coming back around to AP2s
