What we say...
Titleist’s highest MOI iron has a thin fast clubface to maximise ball speeds, a 360deg undercut cavity to maximise playability and a 42g tungsten toe weight to ramp up the MOI. Titleist reckon the AP1’s deliver a perfect blend of distance and forgiveness.
Titleist are keen to not pigeon hole their irons into player categories, insisting they prefer to fit the iron to the player rather than vice versa. So whilst we label the AP1’s as super game improvement irons, you’re just as likely to find the long irons at the top end of a better players bag as you are a game improvers. For us the AP1’s are one of the nicest looking heads you’ll find in the category. Compared to many the soles are a bit narrower, there’s less offset and they certainly aren’t anywhere near as bulky as some. The lofts are 2-3deg weaker than the longest on test so it’s unfair to compare them for distance, but we will say across the board they performed very solidly.
A very strong option if how a club looks is important to you. Simon’s played a set for 8 months and loves how such a game improvement design doesn’t have the usual “junk in the trunk” traits associated with the SGI iron category.
