What we say...
Tech: Titleist’s highest MOI iron has a thin fast clubface to maximise ball speeds, a 360° undercut cavity to maximise playability and a 42g tungsten toe weight to ramp up the MOI.
We say: Titleist is keen to not pigeonhole their irons into player categories; they prefer to fit the iron to the player rather than vice versa. So while we label the AP1s as SGI irons, you’re just as likely to find the long irons at the top end of a better player’s bag. For us the AP1’s are one of the nicest looking heads you’ll find in this 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 2-3° 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.
Verdict: A very strong option if how a club looks is important to you. We love how such a game improvement design doesn’t have the usual “junk in the trunk” traits associated with the category.
Titleist Irons User Reviews
I use the Todays Golfer handicap tool and I am currently at 20. Thought this would help gauge the relevance to you all. I bought these clubs as I inspire to become a much better player. I am very inconsistant and there for these clubs have good rounds but also bad rounds. When struck well these are hight flighing quick stopping and sneaky long. But when I hit a bad shot the distance is poor ( as you would expect ) but the feedback is still possitive and does not wreck your fingers. I have the standard shafts and they are of very high quality. I went for the 5 to gap as I have chosen to use hybrids after that, this is a good option for me as I have 4 wedges instead of 3 now. Hope this helps. Stuart.
