Feel: definetly AP2
Distance: XHP due to stronger Lofts
Forgiveness: XHP and RBladez are quite similiar forgiveness-wise

If you dont need that extra distance/forgiveness, i'd go with AP2

Cobra Bio Cell+ 17.5° Tour AD-DI Blk 7

Go get fit and see which one of those three work the best.  I have AP2's (710s) that have been in the bag for three years.  I got fit this past Thursday and when we settled on a shaft we narrowed the irons down to the Rocketbladez Tour, AP2s, and a Mizuno iron (sorry, dont remember which one).

FOR ME, the AP2s were the weakest of the three because they spun to much (again, same shaft used for all three).  The Rocketbladez spun the least and gave me the best numbers.

In terms of feel, I honestly couldn't tell much of a difference between the three.  If you blindfolded me, I would be guessing as to which one was which.

For what it is worth, I appear to be a higher spin player.  I had a Titleist 910H and AP2s and my clubfitter took all of that away from me because they spun to much.

Bottom line, go get fit.

I am not as narrowed minded and need to justify my purchase as many here. That said I owned the original AP2s 3=pw and thoroughly enjoyed them when I played them the season they came out. Also owned AP1 710 s last year and alternated with TM TP CBs and MCs, and G 20 PX 6.0. I bought the XHP 4-pw,Flt PX 95 SS once before hitting RB Tours which I have a few times recently. All three sticks you mentioned are great ,playable,good forgiveness for players stick,and look good. Obviously shaft choice means a lot. I haven't played "real golf" on a course yet and it will be awhile  here in Mi. That all said is I wouldn't trade my XFPs for the others at this time with only lots of range time. Of course things could change once on course. One thing for sure is both XHPs and RB Tours have the distance edge in my book over A2s if that matters to you which it might not. All feel good but personally love the "soft" feel of the XHPs that to me are different than the other irons which I believe if rom the stock Fl PX 95 shaft and thier face tehnology. JMHO.

I was in the same conundrum, but ended up going with 4-PW in the X-Hot Pros with PXi 6.0.  The feel on all clubs is great, but the forgiveness and performance of the Pros with the PXi for me was just a great fit.  I also liked that the Pros had no upcharge for the PXi and they were reasonable as well with the grip upgrade as well.

I'm interested in seeing an AP2 vs XHP comparison. Love my AP2's, but considering making the switch.
