716 vs. 718

Jeffery M

Any TT members recently get 716 AP irons and thinking about the new 718's? In July I got new 716 AP1's and they perform the way I want them too. Currently a 6 handicap and I don't think the 718's would benefit me much. Sure they look sweet but performance wise for my game, I'm not thinking about upgrading. Anybody else feel the same way?

    Not much,just like I did ap2 714 to ap2 716. Maybe the ap3 would make a big difference.Try going to a demo day. I will definitely check this out,when it comes here to Hawaii in September.

    Not a perfect analogy, and everyone's circumstances such as discretionary income and alternatives for enjoyment differ, but I like to think of it like an automobile. I enjoy a new car, the smell, the new features, less noise, etc......but it takes a few years to wear out, the technology changes incrementally on new models, and it is not worth it for me to get a new one every year. For me, doing research before I buy and assuring myself that there is a "fit" for my game is more important then the next sparkly thing. I have 716 AP2s.....which I plan to keep for a few years, but I will look at the 718s, and probably just buy 818s to replace my older hybrids.

    My AP2s are almost 2 years old now but playing the best golf of my life right now( 1 handicap). My pro told me today that he previewed the AP3s last week and he said they are hot, significant distance improvements. His fitting sets should be here by Friday and I am dying to try them out. Yes, I bought new driver/3 wood this year so budget is not there for new clubs. I am going to have to make a decision whether to upgrade or not. At 56, I could always use more distance.

    Jeffery,
    You should read Speedy's post about his fitting last week.

    Jeffery,

    I was fitted in May and feel the same with one minor exception. I went with 716 AP2's but did the 4iron in an AP1. I intend to swap that for a 718 AP3. Otherwise I am completely content.

    I sport the AP1's right now, gunna gamble and wait to see if they come out in a dark finish.Too soon to upgrade says my better half.

    Go get fit and hit them side by side. If they are that much better than get them and if not stay with 716

    Currently playing 716 CB and 716 MB combo set. Happy with both but may look at replacing the MB and going 5-PW with CB so will definitely take a look at the 718 CB. Always trying to buy a game. :)
