Figured I would start a discussion for Titleist AP2's and how they react with different shafts in them. I'm a high ball hitter and generate a decent amount of spin. It's not necessarily a bad thing, unless it's pretty windy of course. So what shafts have you tried in AP2's that you found combated the higher flight produced by the club head? I guess this thread is geared more toward guys who have higher swing speeds and tend to hit the ball higher.

Post your combination. Also, post your 6 or 7 iron distances.

Thanks!

I played the 712 AP2s with C-taper S+ and that combination had a lower trajectory for me.  My 6 iron carry is about 185.

I have C-Taper S+ in a set of Taylormade MC's and hit them really high, and I honestly don't like the feel of C-Tapers. I've thought about X's soft stepped to improve the feel, but I would probably see a higher than desired trajectory with a normal swing.

I just purchased a set of AP2s with Super Peening Blue X Stiff.  The flight is about right, but I have lost a few yards coming from MP 64 with soft stepped C Tapers in S+.  These may be a little stiff for me.  Now carry a 6 iron about 182

I agree with this, although I think your soft stepped X isn't a bad idea. Could try hard stepped S+ too... Or bending a degree or two strong... I don't know. Maybe try a lower spin head like the i20 unless you're set on AP2s.

I'm definitely not dead set on AP2's, but it is an iron I am highly considering. As far as the shaft goes, if I went back to a C-Taper, it would be a soft stepped X rather than a hard stepped S+.

I don't like i20's at all.

I hear ya, I didn't get along with them either. S56 are also on the lower spin side. I'm not pin pointing PING, but most forged irons these days seem to be higher spin. Maybe I'm wrong though...

I've got C-Taper X in mine. Best combination of workability, feel and spin reduction I've found (coming from 710MB with PX 7.0).
6 iron (32* loft) distance is right around 200 yards depending on the weather (Ball speed around 137 mph). LA: 16*, Spin: 5500-5700

Thanks for the info. My 6 iron distance with my S3 Pro MB's (X100's) is 190 with a normal full swing on a warm day, no wind. That's making me lean toward C-Taper X's soft stepped once.

I play 712 AP2 with PX 6.5. Lower ball flight for me, great feel and workability. I have hit C Tapers X and S+, just like the feel of the PX better fits my game. 190 carry with my 6i

Had S300's in mine but switched to C-Taper S. Flight is a bit lower and more penetrating Picked up 1/2 club distance over the S300's. 7i 170; 6i 185.

what If I wanted to hit the ball higher? (I know don't have a heart attack!).  I have a really flat swing and hit a low draw with little spin.
Would PXi do the trick compared to s300?

You're not going to gain spin with the PXi. It's a high launch, low spin shaft. I would think S300's would be perfect if you're looking for more spin. I spin the ball like crazy with S300's. I'm steep though, and you stated you're flatter. KBS Tour's are spinny and higher launching according to most. I've never tried them because I heard they spin a lot.

I play AP2 with Dynalite Gold XP s300. 7 iron 157 carry. This shaft helped create more spin then PX, KBS tour or DG. Also lighter which helped SS of 95.

Post and run. LOL

Posts like this should have some detail along with them. It doesn't help anyone when you post something like that. Several tour players are using them. I know Dufner has them in all of his irons. I hit a buddies Scratch SB-1 6 iron that was shafted with a PXi 6.5 and it felt awesome. Had a very penetrating ball flight.

I would agree with you.  Case in point, I think the project x trajectory is higher than the c taper.
