Titleist AP2 714

10 posts in this topic

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

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.

    • Thanks, makes perfect sense to me as it has been what I have worked on the past couple of months, and up until yesterday it wasn't something I had to really think about during the swing.  I'll hit the range sometime this week, hopefully it was just a bad day. And yes, been planning to get a My Swing Thread going, but was hoping to get back to where I felt my swing was late last year first. But that may not happen, so guess I'll try to get some swings recorded soon.
    • more offset if for the ones who can't close the face. for me i want less offset so i don't have to worry my ball hooking when i close the face. a lot of AM golfers aren't worry about trying to spin the ball with a GI irons, they are more into trying to smoke the ball as far as they can. and the most forgiveness they can get. but their are some guys who can spin the ball with a GI because they are using a softer ball which helps a lot and knows how to spin the ball. i think it's easier to hit a ball with a small face then a big face
    • I don't really feel that. I'm not working on anything that has to do with the elbow "dropping" at all. If anything I feel it driving outward (toward the ball) more as it comes down naturally. You should start a Member Swing thread of your own. Your elbow probably gets stuck around behind you too much. I'm exaggerating some things to help with my piece right now. It exits lower when I swing normally (even on a draw).
    • @iacas  two quick questions for you. On your transition into the downswing, what is your feel for when the club/hands/right arm/elbow drops?  I ask this because I had a horrific round yesterday, once I got to the top of my swing I was totally clueless, even went back to the range a few hours later, had no issues with wedges, but everything else stayed horrific.  I understand the lower body initiates the downswing, but for me it is more of a parallel move with my lower slide/rotation and my right elbow dropping.  I tried what I would call my normal swing and it just wasn't working, then I tried to only shift my lower body first, then tried the feeling of pulling my hands down and then out.  Regardless of what I tried it just didn't work, just lost all feelings when I got to the top.  Not looking for a magic pill here, just curious if you have a certain feel at this point in your swing. On your follow through, I notice your left arm stays high (inline with your shoulder line).  Mine is much lower when I finish my follow through, sometimes probably under my shoulder line. Is this just a difference in swings or is there a common fault that you see that may cause a lower follow through? Thanks!
