traded in my mizuno mp 69s on titleist ap2 irons. LOVE THEM!

4 posts in this topic

after going from mizuno mp 52s to 58, 67 then the past 2 yrs hitting mp 67 blades.

Anyway, I hit ALOT of irons. Im seasoned enough to know that dont mean a damn thing hitting a ball into a plastic wall and watching an animation. The real test is CAN you hit that shot 175 yds out on a hot fairway with 3 strangers waiting on you.

I settled on the AP2s with the KBS tour shaft and i couldnt be happier. I got fitted and Im 2 degrees upright and dialed in. I shot an 81(3 birdies but i need to learn to putt) without getting fit and realized I needed to have them bent a little a few holes into it.

They are not as soft as Mizuno irons and they click louder but I like that. I have never hit a more forgiving players iron. Even when I played Ping G10 cavity back game improvement clubs.

The most impressive thing about the irons was the way i can pitch and chip with them. I almost had a chip in eagle on a par 5 after I had just nailed a 210 yd 4 iron 10 yds off the green. REALLY solid professional feel. I can see why so many tour players have these irons.  Alot of people overlook them because they are classic/plain looking and really not the easiest to hit but man they are serious gamers.

I knew I had made the right decision with these irons when I was faced with a 130 yd nine iron shot over a tree. Before when I would have to get a ball up quickly with my blades, I would always worrry about where the ball would end up after going over the tree. Open or close a blade a 1/4" and you have a big draw or slice. I was able to hit this 9 iron pure to the green. It felt great. The Lamkin grips and sensicore helped stablilize alot of the swings.

Looking forward to my next tournament in a couple weeks.

sorry for the rambling. at the beach bored(for the moment).

Have a great memorial day weekend!

Yeah I agree, they are awesome clubs. Just sucks they are so expensive!! I went and hit the AP2, MP59 and Rocketbladez tour this week and just couldn't justify the $500 more for the AP2 so it was the Rocketbladez. Really easy to hit and quite forgiving. I reckon they were very close in feel to the MP59's although most people say the are at the harsher end for Mizuno.

I love my AP-2 irons too.  I've had them for 3 years now.  I also agree with the short game aspect.  I originally bought them only down to the PW, but then ordered the 51° GW because I liked the short game feel of the PW so much.
