If I wanted to order a combo set of AP1 5 - 7 iron and AP2 8 - PW, would you advise that I get the AP2 2 degrees stronger to match the loft of the AP1s, or will bending two degrees have too big of an impact on the bounce of the club? If got the AP2 1 degree strong, this would leave a 5* gap between the 6 and 7 irons.
Thanks in advance.
Hi Ross D, I currently play that same combo AP1 5-7 and AP2 8-PW. When I ordered them, I got the AP2's bent 2* stronger and love them. The gaps fill perfectly and have had little to no effect on bounce as far as I can tell.
I have placed an order last week after doing a fitting for the combination you reference above. I got mine bent 2 degrees strong to match tha AP1 lofts to attempt to achieve consistent gapping. Since there is a fair amount of bounce already on the 8 iron - PW, the reduction in bounce shouldn't be noticeable (for every degree of loft there is a corresponding change in bounce) - I verified, as I was concerend about the same issue.
The fitter recommended adjusting the AP2s 2 degrees? Have they had experience ordering sets using this configuration in the past?
Also, just curious...what shafts did you order with your set?
Yes, I ordered my AP2s 2 degrees strong to match AP1 lofts. I am putting the Nippon NS Pro 950 shaft in my irons. I was fit to that shaft a few years ago by Titleist and have stuck with it - I tried the stock option on the AP1 (True Temper XP 95), but it didn't feel as good as the NS Pro 950 to me. I really like the Nippon shaft and it is a very popular shaft offering.
