Titleist AP2 714

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

So I've searched for AP2 reviews and most of them seem to be from 2010 and before.  I want to know if anybody has the AP2 714 and what they think about them.  I just ordered new AP2's after getting fitted for them.  Should come in about 2 weeks I was told.  I'm 6'4'' about 210 lbs. I'm trying to take my game to the next level after shooting in the 80's consistently for the past year and a half.  I play about 3-4 times a week and I'm 22 so in my prime.  I'm swinging callaway RAZR X Black irons right now.  I like them but they are standard size and everybody has been telling me they are too short.  I ordered my new AP2's 4-GW with an inch extension, 3 degrees forward adjustment angle lie, and midsize grips.  Will these be a lot tougher to hit than my current set of irons? They felt really good when I swung them in the shop but I'm not sure how accurate the computer program is.  I'm super anxious to get them and see how I play with them.  If anybody has any insight or reviews it would be much appreciated! Thanks

Thanks mvmac.


I saw that review but I just wanted to hear if any users had any opinions about them

I can only offer insight between the AP1 and AP2.  I honestly didn't notice that much of a difference between the two during a round where I would hit my AP1 and then my buddy's AP2 (same club).  For example the 8i, same distance, nearly same flight, height, roll-out, etc.  Ap2 felt much crisper but that was probably a mental thing because looking down at that thinner top line is very appealing to the eye.

 

In addition if you have several mishits a round like me, the AP2's will likely punish you a bit more.  Example I hit my 4i AP2 on a long par 3, mishit on the toe but it still ran long and ended up greenside.  Tried the AP2, felt like same shot same mistake (toe) and the ball only went about 2/3 as far with roughly the same swing speed.  Clearly the ap2s are less forgiving but that's just something that you sacrifice to look at the topline.

 

What I can say is good God the AP2's look so sexy at address, AP1s are shovels but they work for me.  

 

Enjoy your new set! :beer:

Just tried out the AP2 S300, and it was really sweet. 4 shots with the 714-AP2 7i and all 4 were reasonably in the sweet spot. Much easier to hit than my MP-32 clubs. I also want to try out the JPX-850 forged, but they did not have any for me to tape up.

 

I really like the thinner sole on the AP2, and the club head is nearly as small as the MP-32. Cool club. Checking out the review. . .

I got my AP2 714's last spring, with the KBS shafts.  My previous irons were Mizuno MP30s with DG S300.  I find the AP2 to be a little more forgiving, and I launch the ball a little higher.  Based on the fitting with our club pro, the higher launch is primarily a function of the shaft.  Last summer was my best golf ever, at age 58, got to a 3.7 index and stayed there for a while.  I'm happy with them.

Roughly how much higher launch were you getting from the KBS shafts versus the S300?

It's hard to quantify, we didn't use a launch monitor. I'd say it's like a club difference, I hit a six like i used to hit the seven, but six iron length.

Thanks for the response, and that's kind of what I would expect. Sounds really good.
