Looking at these two sets of irons and wondering if anyone has hit both. Any feedback would be great.

Have hit the AP1 and love them.  Have not hit the SpeedBlades because they look like toys and i don't like how they look at address - don't like the notch in the transition from hosel to topline.

Hit them both, but I didn't like (for me at least) how strong the Speedblades are lofted. 7-iron Speedblade went 195 with 12 yards of rollout, while the AP1's went 180 with 3 yards of roll. Mind you the Speedblade 7-iron is (I think) 2 degrees stronger than the AP1. For me, I wanted the higher traj/more spin since I can hit it a decent distance anyways.

Have hit both on a LM only, I have hit the 712 ap1's on course.  The titleists are very nice and will be a relevant iron for 20 years, the speeds will be relevant for 20 minutes;).

I Have a set of speedblades on the way, I currently use 712 ap2 but these are so easy to hit and i like the look at address better than the 714 ap1, didnt look as chunky
