Hi guys, Just wondering whether anyone plays a combo set made up of AP1's and AP2's or knows of anyone who does? If so, would love to hear your views on this. For those that don't what do you think about a setup like this? e.g. 4,5,6 in AP1 and 7 to PW in AP2. Looking forward to hearing from you! Thanks!

I've seen combo sets like that in golf shops. Could be a great setup with the longer irons being high launch, forgiving SGI clubs and the shorter irons being more traditional players cavity. I play the AP2 and they're the best irons I've ever owned. Only concern would be possible odd distance gap between the 6 and 7 irons. The AP1s have strong lofts so there will only be a 2-deg loft gap between your 6 & 7 irons. The AP1 is designed to launch higher so it may cancel out for you specifically but I'd hit them both and consider altering the lofts a bit if you see an odd distance gap.

Hi guys,

I contemplated such a setup, particularly because of the lofts on the AP1s that called for the introduction of two gap wedges.  I discussed it with my fitter and tried hitting some AP2s with various shafts, but the AP1s were really performing better for me down to PW.  I didn't buy Titleist's gap wedges but filled the bottom of the bag with SCOR's.  Love the SCOR wedges for "wedge" shots, but sometimes wonder if I shouldn't swap the 48 for another AP1 for better full swing performance.

Bottom line was that the AP1s gave me more accuracy, no doubt because of the forgiveness factor mostly.  My suggestion is to stick with them rather than mixing AP2s in, but it's your money...

    • Day 20: Played 18 today. Foggy at the beginning. My rangefinder didn’t work!😜 Played OK. My driver is coming along nicely. My long irons, 3W and hybrid need work.
    • Not that drill, this one. Low point control.   
    • Golf is a safe activity until irresponsible golfers get in the equation. My current club caters to visitors, mostly from out of state. The parking lot is full of out of state plates every day. There is supposed to be a 14-day quarantine/travel restrictions but I doubt any of them are following the order.  My club is not enforcing it either. From what I have seen in the last few months, many people came as a group in the same car. No masks. They shared carts and sat next to each other at the bar/patio to hangout. They pulled out the flag and they spit. Eventhough masks are required in the proshop, I have witnessed many who didn’t wear one because they were just going in “for a second”. At my old club, masks and social distancing does not exist. People do whatever they want because they say it is a private club. Large groups congregate at the tee boxes and they hangout on the patio afterwards. Many times I couldn’t even walk thru the patio because there were so many people (and I didn’t want to either). There has been multiple positive cases at my old club, I am surprised there aren’t more sick people there yet. My husband works at a hospital and he treats covid patients. So far, they have zero cases in the department staff because everyone takes covid seriously. Unlike the idiots who think just because they are outdoor playing golf, they don’t have to follow safety protocols. We cannot have nice things because of a few bad apples.
    • Thanks for the input @boogielicious.   I've seen, but not in detail, the COVID drills,  I'll take a closer look at them.  You also mentioned the "Towel Drill", is this what you are referring to? It was posted by @mvmac a few years back on TST.
