I went to a Titleist fitting centre yesterday to get fitted for some new irons with the view of either getting the AP1's or AP2's.
I am a 10 handicap, decent ball striker, 7 iron 165-170 yards.
I went in with the view of maximum forgiveness (AP1's) but after hitting both clubs my numbers were virtually the same (except AP1's went little further due to lofts).
My fitter was leaning towards recommending the AP2's as he didn't feel with my swing speed I would get anymore forgiveness out of the AP1's. However I still feel I would be giving up some forgiveness.
I preferred the looks, sound off the face and flight of the AP2's, butmy current mindset is still whatever makes this game easier to score low!
I want to get down to 8 this year and keep progressing lower so I guess my question is which would you go for out of the 2 sets?
Ideally I'd combo the set but the lofts don't allow it which is annoying.
For the record I am not at the level of shaping the ball my focus is generally on a consistent straight flight.
Advice & opinions welcome?
