Received my new set of AP2's today.  Played hooky from work this afternoon and shot a 74.  Hitting these a little higher with the softer shafts, but I've gained a half club distance from my old set of Cally's.  Not because they are Titleist, but because they are the best, I've now got the set I've always wanted..

Glad you are enjoying the new sticks.  I am hoping to get my new set soon.  Enjoy your rounds with them.  You will not regret moving away from the darkside.  Welcome to Titliest!

Glad to hear all the great feedback on the New AP2's! Ordered my set last week. Living in Colorado, I'm just hoping to get them in my hot little hands on them before the snow flies to badly... Smile

Been playing AP1's the last 4 years and loved them but when I went down to get new 714's..... wound up hitting the AP2's much better! Love the way they looked and felt!!

 Can't wait to put them in my bag!!

Playing hookey never gets old.  Playing hookey with a new set of Titleist, is better.  Playing hookey with new Titleist's and scoring well, nothing better ...

I am hoping to receive mine soon too. What was the release date?

Just an update on the clubs.  One day after getting them, I was asked to fill in for the club's Member-Guest since one of the players dropped out (I had not planned to play since it was starting on Friday).  After hitting the new AP2's for only one day, I still felt more confident using the AP2's than the cally's I had been using everyday for the the past 5 months.  The most amazing difference is from the 4-7 irons, they feel so much more solid, easier to trust for the full carry to the pin.  I feel I can swing easier and produce the identical results, making those longer iron shots so much easier.  Now on our longer par 3's I'm using the 4 iron instead of the the hybrid, having no trouble with the longer carry.  Even considering putting a 3 iron back in the bag....

  IF YOU HAVE NOT TRIED HITTING THESE IRONS, DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND AT LEAST GIVE THEM A TRY....

The official release date is November 8th. Anyone that already have their hands on a set must have inside help of some kind. ;)

Cameron,

 

What is the difference in True Temper XP 95 R-300 vs R-100?

Is this shaft ok for the 714 AP 2's?

 

thanks

clayton t


i have 2 sets ap2 one is 710s i bought then last january they were brand new never used plastic still on them then were stolen in aug.  someone left 712s at my door last week later in the week police recovered them at pawn shop i do not have 714 as of yet

Phil, 

The only difference is 2g in weight.  They will have all the same ball flight/spin characteristics.  It is a very good shaft for players looking for a light weight steel shaft that promotes a mid/high launch.

My old irons had a set of KBS tour shafts, these are TT Dynalite XL r300's.  I thought I'd lose a little something with the shaft change, but the TT's are lighter and much softer, absolutely perfect.  I hit a 7 about 165, had played with stiff shafts up until turning 50 and thought, the softer shafts were the way to go.  I can swing easier, flight the ball lower and still haven't lost any yardage.  The wedges especially, have a boring flight that doesn't get abused much by the wind.  Anyone changing has new fun on the horizon...

Here's to hoping that my order ships before the release date and more specifically before the Team Titleist event in Austin.

Hello Don; Just curious as to a little info. I've had my AP1's for a year now, and have always wondered about the AP2's. (I'm about a 15 HDC) If you don't mind telling me about what handicap your playing and what shaft you ordered for your 2's? About what distance, and ball flight were you getting with your AP'1's compared to the AP2's, and could you tell much difference in forgiveness. Thanks for any more info you can give me.  Norris:

I'm glad you boys ordered your new sticks and I hope they arrive in time for Austin.   I should have just enough room in my car to take a set back to Tennessee with me  :)

Norris,

 At altitude here in Denver, my AP1's with Proto 75 Graphite shafts hit an 8 iron about 155+ (on a good day) with fairly high ball flight. Not remarkable but I'm almost 62. I ordered the Kura Kage Shaft in Reg Flex. The distance and forgiveness were very close between my older AP1s and the new AP2s, so it really came down to feel. (with the AP2s winning handily). 

 I expect to get similar distances/flight with the new clubs. The simulator #s were actually a little better than with my 710 AP1s

 I did not keep an index this season but it was around 13.5.

All I need now is to get the AP2s in my bag!!

:-)

Perhaps you can help me pin down the best fitting center in Salt Lake City Utah.  With the exception of my irons, I play all Titleist equipment.  I would like to go back to either CBs or AP2's but I want to do it right and not go to a "MAKE THE SALE NO MATTER WHAT" store.  I'm not adverse to going to another state close by to get true titleist service.....suggestions appreciated by all.

Cameron, 

Just wondering, do you think I am defeating the purpose of purchasing new AP2's if I put top of the line (UST Recoil's or GD) graphite shafts in those wonder forged heads?  I have had 7 back surgeries and even though I LOVE the feel or forged irons, I just don't have the club head speed to load steel shafts. 

My driver club head speed has dropped from 108-110mph down to 92-94mph!!  If I am playing GREAT....I can handle steel shafts, but man, if I'm not......well, you get the point!!

I currently play AP1's (712's) with the GD graphite shaft in regular and love them although I seem to pull/DRAW them at times.  

I will go for a full fitting either way, but I just wanted some feedback about that particular combo!!  

Thanks so much and God bless, Todd

Sorry...this discussion point should have gone to Cameron D

Same here Tyler, unfortunately I was told that would be shipping Monday and not arriving in time for Austin.  Oh well, my Original AP2's have been true to me all these years, we'll do it one more time.

 

 See you at Wolf Dancer

Hey Todd,

You are not defeating any purpose by adding either of those shafts to the new 714 AP2s.  If that shaft promotes a consistent and optimal ball flight, then it would certainly be a great option to consider.  By working with a Club Fitter, I think you will notice how beneficial those shafts can be in those heads for certain players.

You've got all the goods Higly.  I wouldn't be surprised if they're delivered in a valor billy baroo bag

I've got a Way Inside track and still I'm not getting mine to ship until Monday.

Thanks for the reply and the info, Don. It sounds like you and I are in the same ball park. If I'm not mistaken, your high altitude there will make the ball fly farther than here in the Missouri Ozarks? In that case, we'd be pretty close since I hit my 8 iron w/DG R300 Reg. flex steel shaft about 125-130 yds. with fairly high flight.  Haven't set a HDC, but it's about 15 and I'll be 65 yrs. in Nov. Not sure if I'll go for a new set of irons yet since I've only had my AP1's for a year, but new clubs are always tempting, and thanks to your experience with the AP2's and info, I'll defiantly check them out when I go for a fitting. I'm more and more thinking that what I've heard about AP2's are too hard to hit for an old hacker like me may just be a myth. I'm also thinking that a lot of it will depend on what shaft a person get in the AP2's.  Thanks again Don.

I ordered the AP2 with the 95 stiff shaft I hit it lower more boring flight than the kbs shaft or the steel fiber can't wait till they come in

Brandon C


I also have some AP2 irons on order and unfortunately I'm in the same boat as most of you. Wont have them in time for Wolfdancer but I might have a cool new Titleist bag by then.... We shall see....
