As if choosing your new Titleist 718 irons wasn’t difficult enough, THEY ADDED THE AP3!!!
Many of our customers are asking how the AP3 fits into the line up. Naturally, one would think that the AP3 would come after the AP2, and serve as a player iron. However, the AP3 fits in between the AP1 and AP2.
HOW THE 718 APs DIFFER FROM THE 716 APs:
- AP2 is smaller than the 716 AP2
- 718 AP3 is slightly larger than the 716 AP2
- 718 AP1 is slightly larger than the 716 AP1
718 AP1 – meant for the golfer that is looking for consistent and longer distance
718 AP2 – for the better golfer that wants to shape shots, but wants forgiveness
718 AP3 – players that want forgiveness as well as distance
Here are how the numbers looked on our launch monitor when I hit each Titleist iron:
Blue/Iron 3 = 718 AP1
Orange/Iron 1 = 718 AP2
As you can see, the AP1 went further than the AP3 due to the dynamic face. The AP3 went just as far as the AP1, and also had a tighter dispersion than the AP2. The AP2 had a lot of spin which is why it went much shorter; the shortage in distance had a lot to do with the high launch angle. As you can tell the AP1 and AP3 average about 5 mph more ball speed than the 718 AP2.
