Hi guys been having trouble with my account or I wouldn't be so spotty... Anyways I been looking to upgrade my entire bag and am slowly but surely. I just ordered my new irons 716 AP1 and can't be more excited. I was just wondering what you guys thought on how hard it's going to be to adjust to them coming from TM Burner plus irons. I'm sure they will be a half to a full club longer due the stronger lofts, but how much more forgiving could they be. I really hope the long irons will be a tad bit easier to hit than mine currently are. Thanks for any and all feedback and remember the goal is to keep it in the short grass lol

My review for the site is above. I've been using them since writing this review. Excellent clubs. One watch out is with short game shots with the PW and GW. They will go a bit farther than a corresponding chip or pitch with the equivalent wedge. The ball feels like it jumps off the face with good contact. So be careful with that.

What shaft are you using? Do you think a 54* would fit between the GW and a 60* or would that leave too much of a gap? I know everyone has different yardages but what do you think about that having played them. Not sure I want to carry 5 wedges. My current AW is 50* so going 54* 60* is not a problem.

I've got the XP90 in stiff. I'm between stiff and regular in driver swing speed 92 - 96 and was fitted for lighter and stiff shafts a few years back. The lighter stiff shafts are kind of in between stiff and regular for heavier shafts.

I would look at your distances more than the loft number. My AP1 PW goes 120. I have the AP1 GW and it goes 110. My 54 wedge goes 90, so I do have a gap there, but a 3/4 swing with my PW is my 100 yard shot. I carry a 58 for my lob, but rarely do full swings with it.

I started playing with them a few months ago and it took me about a month to get used to them seeing that I was coming off of players irons (Mizuno).  Getting much longer distances and can still work the ball well.  I needed more forgiveness which they provide.   

Mizuno 7 iron distance was around 160-165.  Getting average 175 with the AP1's and if I really crank it (with the right weather conditions) have gotten the ball into the 185-190 range.  So, would say I am getting about a 10-15 yard added distance with these irons.  

Its pretty remarkable how hot clubs are getting now.  Its allowing everyone to have a chance to play good golf as they age.
