The AP1 will offer more forgiveness and and actual blade size similarities. The AP2 will be a more work able iron then both options. I would visit your local Club Fitter and have him properly fit you. He will be able to see what iron you are most consistent with, since we have had a wide variety of different playing abilities using each iron model.
I also had the TMs and just recently upgraded to the AP1s. My instructor told me and I agreed, the look and feel were vaguely similar so the transition wasn't too drastic as far as look and feel. The biggest difference is the results! Recommend a fitting session and work thru the bag!!! Good Luck!!
I currently play 712 AP1 irons and shoot mid to low 80's and they are excellent irons. If your shooting mid 80's to low 90's then you would most certainly benefit from using the increased forgiveness of the AP1 irons.
With that being said, I would wait until November for the new 714 AP1 iron release. Supposedly major changes were made within the AP1 and AP2 line-up. Something to keep in mind. Also make sure you talk to your local fitting professional to make sure your getting exactly what you need for your game.
There is a possibility the thicker sole would be an issue with your turf interaction. Just know that the AP2 will have the thinner sole, but offer slightly higher bounce in a few of the lofts. This all is based on what the actual issue is with those shorter irons. It sounds like there could be more of a lie angle or loft issue with your shorter irons. This is something I would have a Club Fitter take a look at to see if this is causing your inconsistencies.
