Titleist AP2 Irons Brings Advanced Performance for Golf Lovers
The Titleist AP2 Irons look basically the same as the AP1, save for the obvious name change, the forged engraving identifier on the AP2 and the all-monochrome colour scheme (The AP1 has splashes of red).
The Titleist claims, the Titleist AP2 Irons is a multi-material, dual-cavity design aimed at serious golfers who want greatly enhanced feel with Tour-like performance. Extensive analysis of sound and vibration enable us to take the quality of impact feel to a new level. A 55-gram tungsten-nickel sole weight further enhances feel and forgiveness.
The acronym “AP” stands for “Advaned Performance,” and theT itleist AP2 Ironsis constructed with several materials, hence “multi-material.” The AP2s are formed with a 1025 carbon steel body. Laser welded to the back and sole, a tungsten nickel box lowers the center of gravity, creating an optimal CG location low and deep in the clubhead. The lower, deeper CG results in improved launch conditions with consistent ball speed for distance control and optimal launch and spin for trajectory control. Titleist calls this a “process break through” and, in the words of Chris McGinley, says “never has a back piece with that kind of function or complicated geometry been welded to a forged body.” The breakthrough is on the order of the undercut cavities employed by the likes of TaylorMade and Callaway.
At setup, the sight behind the ball was very comforting. They have a relatively thin top line and a nice mixture of chrome and satin to impress, but not overly so. At address though it is all business. The modest offset even in the long irons is in keeping with an advanced player’s expectations, and just enough for the mid-handicap player to handle.
The clubhead is forged out of 1025 steel which gives that soft yet solid forged feeling on well-struck shots. Hit after hit, the clubs gave out one of the nicest, softest sound and feel I have heard or felt coming from a golf club. Toe or heel mis-hits didn’t seem to feel much different, which can be attributed to the forgiveness provided by the club. And with a slightly blunted leading edge, these irons cut into the turf nicely. Balls hit achieved a good, penetrating flight without the usual ballooning trajectory of many of its competitors, just a good medium arc with good length.
These Titleist AP2 Irons do not really like to hit super-low shots though so hitting out from below a line of trees will require more work,
