Dedicated to providing serious golfers with the highest performing equipment in golf, Titleist introduces the next generation of its groundbreaking Advanced Performance irons. The new Titleist AP2 Irons stay true to the design mission of "Advanced Performance with Feel." It is a multi-material, dual cavity iron that provides modern ball flight and forgiveness with the traditional look, feel, and sound that serious golfers have come to expect from a Titleist irons. The new AP1 model features sleeker contours that result in a better address position, and the iron has been improved with internal weighting that utilizes higher density tungsten in order to distribute mass more efficiently which increases the moment-of-inertia (MOI) without changing the CG location or the blade length. The higher MOI provides more consistent ball speed across the clubface and better distance control. Better distance control leads to more scoring opportunities and is the key to good iron play. Finally, this iron provides more forgiveness without any loss of workability or shot control.
The new AP2 712 looks pretty. Titleist has long used “700’’ numbers for irons for a long time. It uses 900 numbers for metal woods. The “7” stands for irons, while the “12” stands for the new model year, 2012. Acushnet says the feedback it receives during this validation process influences the design and specifications of the Titleist products available in golf shops around the world. No word yet on when the AP2 712 irons is available at retail.
Titleist accomplished what they were trying to do. They made the AP2 irons more forgiving then the 710s and they still have great performance. The club face is a little larger than the 710s but still provides playability. Feels like butter when hit well. Geat irons for a wide range of handicaps. Titleist does not disappoint. Once I bought a pair of titleist 712 ap2 irons, at first I don’t think it will be very useful for me, after using a long time, I love this golf set, actually, I just hit less than two meters in the past, but now I can hit more than four meters, so cool for me, I decided to buy the other 712 ap2.
