The Titleist AP2 is a multi-material iron that features a forged 1025 carbon steel body with a high density tungsten nickel box that is laser welded to the back and sole.  For more information, please visit the <a href="www.titleist.com/.../ap2.asp" rel="nofollow">AP2 product page on Titleist.com</a>.

Left-handed AP2 irons should begin shipping in mid-April.

The main difference between traditional shafts with steps (e.g., Dynamic Gold) and stepless shafts (e.g., Project X) is feel.  The stepless shafts anecdotally feel different than stepped shafts as the lack of steps keep vibrations from being amplified as they move up the shaft.

Great site, appreciate the work! Just doing due diligence - are the AP2 forged irons designed to increase the spin rate compared to the 695MBs?  Thanks for the info.

The multi-material, dual cavity design of the <a href="www.titleist.com/.../ap2.asp" rel="nofollow">Titleist AP2</a> irons locates the center of gravity in the center, low, and deep to improve launch conditions compared to traditional blade irons. The box structure and tungsten nickel material tune low frequency vibration for unmatched solid feel.

AP2 irons? I looked at the AP2 site and noticed the CG is below the center support of the iron. So is the sweet spot in the lower 1/3 of the face?  What happens to the shot if your ball strike is in the upper half to 3/4 of the face? I realize the density of Tungsten is 2.3 times that of 1025 carbon steel but is this a cost effective engineering decision? Tungsten costs are 15 times that of 1025 not including the additional welding process. Thanks.

For optimal shot results, we don't recommend striking the ball in the upper half to 3/4 of the face with any iron model.

I live in Montreal, and I'd like to know where in Plattsburgh I could find a golf store that sells Titleist AP2 irons and a prototype Scotty Cameron putter?  If you know the price it would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.  I love this site and visit it regularly, thanks again.

What 2-iron was Adam Scott using at the WGC-CA Championship last week and what was the loft?
