So my current setup is Titleist 710 CB's 4-PW +3/4" 1* upright with X100 shafts soft stepped once.

My new setup is Titleist 716 AP2 4-PW +1/2" standard lie, X100 shafts soft stepped once. I hit the new CB, AP2 and the Ping I Series. 7 iron with all of them in the 175-180 carry range, and I had the best numbers with the AP2's as far as consistency and spin. I was expecting close to $1400 with tax but later realized that was if I got the 3 iron as well. $1150 out the door and should have them shipped to my house from Titleist in 7-10 days. Very excited.

I kind of hate the fact that Titleist releases their clubs in October. My season is basically over by then, so they come out just in time to taunt me ;-)

Yeah, basically. If the MBs are right for you, you don't need a youtube review to tell you.

I dropped by the PGATSS and took a look at the Titleist hybrids - H1 and H2 - they are very handsome clubs, and I liked the slightly rounded sole. Some lucky golfers will have a great looking club.

Titleist did a free fitting recently that I was able to attend and I told them I was looking to get the hybrid and irons and the rep said that what is good for me is the AP1's with an XP 90g stiff shaft and add 1/2" in length for the irons.

The rep fit me for the H2 hybrid at 23 degrees with a stiff 70g blue diamond shaft at the D4 setting.

It was the first time I'd been fitted and it was awesome!  I've been going on an on about these irons ad nauseam and she asked me when I got back if I just wanted money from her family to go towards golf equipment.  I said yes and am excited about getting these bad boys!

Congrats.  I, too, just got my set of 716 AP1 with XP90 S300.  Played 27 holes with them so far and I like them.  Can't say I love them just yet.  I think the biggest issue is going from DGS300 (130gms) in my 712 AP2 to the XP90 S300 (97gms) in these.  So, I'm having some timing and feel differences to overcome.

Played my first round with the ap2 irons yesterday. Love them. Love them a lot. Maybe I was just striking the ball well yesterday but I hit them a ton better than my g25 irons

That's awesome. 

If you don't mind my asking, where did you play and what did you shoot?

I played this course called scherwood concessions. Little par 72 course near my house. Rating of 70.4. 

 

Shot an 87. 41 on the front and a darn 46 on the back. Putting wasn't there all day and driving fell apart on the back. I def had my misfits but I had more good contact shots than poor ones. And the good ones just felt great.

Yeah, I'm thinking of getting 5-AW in the AP1's with the H2 hybrid for Christmas.  I know they're different from AP2's but when I demo'd them, they felt real good

Ap1 definitely felt nice but I just loved the look of ap2. And I figured "hey why not, lets splurge in my first set of forged irons"

Yeah, I agree, I like the look for AP2's more but for my HC, I think the AP2's wouldn't be the best ones for me.

I also am liking my AP2 a lot better than my old CB's. I hit one off the toe the other day and it went considerably further than my old CB's would have gone. Happy with my distance maintained and still being able to work the ball plenty....plus the added help/forgiveness the new weighting gives me.

My $.02, get 'em.  I went from 690.mb - 735cm - 712 AP2 and the 716 AP1 are "legit".  I was able to hit some knock-down shots in addition to low draws from underneath trees.  Stock shots are a little higher than I'm used to, but nothing ballooning.

Also, I knew by feel, where I missed the strike on the clubface, high, low and toe.  For some reason, I have a harder time feeling heel shots with irons, but that's been consistent with all my irons over the years.

Overall, I'm very impressed with these clubs.  I was hesitant moving from forged clubs fitted with DGS300 because that's what I've been playing with for the past 13 years.  But, I took a leap of faith and gave a cast club fitted with a lightweight shaft a try.  I think it turned out well.

Nice, thanks for the review!

I'm going from an non-brand name boxed starter set from a Sports Authority that I got 10 years ago so this would be my first "real" set of clubs.  I'm just glad the winter season is over so I don't feel I'm missing on prime golf time and will be able to use them fresh next March/April. Although, I'll probably be chomping at the bit if I'm unable to play with them for a few months, haha.

Actually, another thing that I forgot to mention, I was fitted for the s300 stock shaft. I tried others but this was just the shaft that I hit best. I love the everything about how it feels. My ball flight is incredibly close to where I want it to be. 

 

Obviously my 9 irons and pw got a little higher than I'd love but I can work on that

    • Played another rusty 18 holes yesterday, but made some good shots along the way.  The best one was on a 370 yard par 4, where I missed the fairway left and dumped the approach in a pond short left of the green. Took a drop and had 85 yards into the wind left to the pin over the same pond, landed it directly in the cup and broke both the cup and the Covid-filler put into it. The hole spat it back out to a 5 inch tap-in bogey, but it was still pretty amazing shot. Wonder if it would've stayed in without the covid-filler in the hole.  
    • A couple of the changes I made in the last year took weeks/months to stick. I know I’ve finally changed the picture when I film some swings that feel crappy, but when I look at the video, the change is still there. We just have to prepare our mindset to know it’s going to take time and effort.  
    • Of course I know I can take more than one. And I usually do. Every now and then this seems to be a mistake I will make.  Like I said I don't really think I make too many course management decision errors. 
    • Yep, I get that. There is so much in life that needs to be prioritized over golf. Golf is still a game. Life, and the people in need to be given more priority. Sometimes I forget that. But hopefully, there will be a time in the future when you can do your 4 day golf school. Best wishes. 
    • Both. Thanks, that's interesting. I do address the ball with the driver club head on the ground. I'll check what happens when I hover it slightly. Now I'm a "low-pegger", so at impact the driver header is pretty close to the ground. I still get a few degrees upwards AoA. I try to address the ball towards the toe with driver. Just to avoid "heeliness". Could that actually have the opposite effect? My brain thinks I need to move the club "longer out"? I can also add that I'm an inside-outer, probably coming from the inside 5 degrees.
