This is my first year playing golf. I started with ping g25 irons and switched to the AP2 712 irons. My handicap is 15 but I am making great progress. These irons are very easy to hit for me. Consistent distance and great feedback on mishits.
Titleist has always been about tradition and seem to always be going after the better player. 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. They are more forgiving and more disctance control.It gives the AP2 player more consistent ball speed over a larger area of the face.
The new AP1 and AP2 irons deliver an industry leading combination of performance, looks and feel. They feature our most advanced multi-material designs which deliver superior distance control through increased moment-of-inertia (MOI) which also provides outstanding solid feel. In addition we have made appearance improvements to both sets.They are designed for low handicappers,Titleist has significantly increased the club's moment of inertia (MOI) by re-positioning tungsten weight within the heads.The overall goal was to better apply the different materials used in the design.
The Titleist AP2 712 irons feature a dual tungsten weighting in the sole of the club that accounts for 20% of the overall weight of the clubhead. This increases the MOI of the club by 7% without having to make the head longer, which means that it is very forgiving for its size and Titleist claim that it has a 6% smaller dispersion than the previous AP2 model.
This is certainly a very easy club to hit. At address the offset is larger than in the Titleist AP1 Irons but not so much that it will put better players off. The head size is also larger and inspires a lot of confidence at address without appearing too chunky. The 712 AP2s are a joy to hit and the True Temper Dynamic XP shaft is light and lovely to use.
The sound and feel at impact is excellent and the trajectory was not much higher than the AP1s. Indeed we could see a lot of single figure golfers using these irons or certainly blending in the longer irons with the shorter irons from the AP1 set. The AP2 irons are a great set and well worth a test if you are as Titliest say, a serious golfer, whatever your handicap.
To sum up,these cheap golf clubs australia are really good, they are cannons. Have a great feel and are easy to control. One of the best irons that have been made. I love my AP2s.
