If one were to play the AP1 irons with the 2° stronger lofts and Dynamic Gold S300 steel shafts, will the ball flight be close to the same trajectory as the AP2 irons with the same shafts?

Ashraf Nasser


All other things being equal, irons with 2° stronger lofts would theoretically produce a stronger trajectory.  We recommend trying out both irons for yourself under the guidance of an <a href="www.fittingworks.com/FindaFitter.aspx" rel="nofollow">Authorized Titleist FittingWorks Partner</a> to determine the proper iron specs for your game.

There are no Tour-only versions of any of the new Titleist irons. The <a href="www.titleist.com/.../ap2.asp" rel="nofollow">AP2s</a> being used by Adam and a number of our other players are the same heads that will be available in golf shops. They are, of course, custom fit to each player's specifications in terms of length, lie angle, loft, shaft and grip.

Ashraf Nasser


With the Tour players that are playing the AP2s, are their clubs the same as what the consumer will get in the golf shop, or is there a Tour-only model with reduced offset and a thinner sole and top line?

Ashraf Nasser


Which shafts have been giving the guys on Tour the best feedback in the AP2?

Ashraf Nasser


The players have largely been sticking with the shafts that they played in their irons previous to the AP2s.

Ashraf Nasser


Do the AP2s provide all the Tour players with higher launch conditions and more spin than their previously played blades?

Ashraf Nasser


I have just ordered a set of the AP2s from my pro. I have a high ball flight so I ordered the irons with Dynamic Gold S400 shafts in order to help lower my trajectory. Would you recommend the S400s or the Project X shafts for these heads? I am just curious and want to be sure I have made the right decision before the irons ship. Thanks in advance for the help!

This is a question that should be directed at your pro or some other <a href="www.fittingworks.com/FindaFitter.aspx" rel="nofollow">Authorized Titleist FittingWorks Partner</a>.

The <a href="www.titleist.com/.../ap2.asp" rel="nofollow">Titleist AP2</a> irons are designed to ease the ball flight up compared to traditional forged blades, particularly in the long irons.
