I've been playing with my DCI 762's since the early 2000's. I really like them, but know that today's technology is far superior. So I'm eyeing a set of AP2's. Here is the question... Should I wait for a month+ until the new 2012 AP2/712 hit the retail stores? Or go ahead and buy the current 2011 AP2/710 now? I talked to the pro at the local shop today and he said the 712's will have an extra tungsten weight in the sole but are very similar to the 710's. What would you guys do? Also, any comments from users of the AP/710's? Would love to hear your reviews.

The season is just about over for us here in the North East U.S. so I'd probably wait and hit the 710's side by side the 712's and pick the ones I like best.  I spoke to my local golf shop and they said with Titleist and Mizuno they aren't able to discount unless the manufacturer gives them permission so he didn't think the price on the 710's would be cut by more than $100 for the first few months the 712's are out.  After that Titleist will ease up price restrictions on the 710's and you should be able to get a decent deal.

The concern I have is the shop I go to is fairly small. So I'm not sure how much inventory, or how long they will have the 710's. I live in Newport Beach... So season is year around. I guess waiting another month or so is probably best. Indeed trying both would be preferred.

I went from the DCI 762's to the 710 AP2's.... Havent looked back, the nice thing is that when the 712's come out the price of the 710's will come down.  From what Ive read there isn't that much difference between the 2..... Mostly cosmetic

You should wait for awhile if you can and hit them side by side.

Even if your local shop stops selling the 710's, there will be a ton of golf shops in SoCal that will continue to sell off their inventory, should you decide you like the 710's better.

I used to live in Orange County, and one thing I miss is the selection of golf shops that came in all shapes and sizes--big stores, mom and pop stores, pro shops.

You'll be able to track down somewhere selling them both.

As far as the AP Irons go?  I recently went from some old Callaway Irons to AP1s, and the difference was incredible.  Within a few weeks, I had confidence in my iron shots and had my best round of the season.

What I think is most remarkable is that the ball flight changes with the irons, I have hit with a much higher trajectory without losing any distance.  The ball jumps off the clubface and then seems to kick into an extra gear as it climbs.  Very satisfied with the golfclubs.

Best of luck with the irons--you can't really go wrong here!

Yeah, hit them side by side and see what you like best... Another month or two isn't going to kill you.

I'd recommend that you hit other clubs other than those as well.  I was dead set on a set of AP2s when I started my search for new clubs and ended up with a set of TaylorMade MCs that I like far better... not sure why but I just did.  I'm glad that I tried them out instead of just buying what I had my mind set on.

    • My goodness, you aren't kidding. For those who don't see the article for whatever reason:  there's a list of the top 25 fastest times ever recorded in the women's 1,500 meter freestyle swim.  Katie Ledecky owns spots 1-13, and also spots 15, 17, 18, 22, and 25.   The closest thing to that I can think of offhand is in threes.  Tiger Woods owns the top three season-long strokes gained: approach ever recorded (granted, these have only been recorded in, I believe, the Shotlink era), and at one point (up until a few years ago), Kurt Warner threw the most yards ever in a Super Bowl, but was also in second and third place on that list. 
    • Day 155.  Quarantine practice plan, day 11.  I really like this drill and I plan to incorporate it into my practices on a regular basis.  I took video but it's still on my phone, I will likely put it in the relevant thread tomorrow afternoon. 
    • Day 28: Long day at work, so not much time left for golf practice today. Managed some work on downswing priority piece, hit 10 balls, 7-iron, lots of rehearsals between shots. 
    • Day 65, July 29, 2021: More three-quarters swing work.
    • It is also acceptable to take relief again, if necessary, from the same cart path for the shot now contemplated.  A common example: cart path is near a boundary object (OB fence) on the left. A right-handed player may take relief for a left-handed shot that has them standing on the cart path and the NPCR for the left handed shot is to the right of the cart path. After taking relief, the player may decide to hit a right-handed shot. But, now standing on the cart path for the right-handed shot, may take relief further to the right of the cart path to allow that shot.
