Perhaps a new-ish take on the CB/AP2 topic:
I currently play a set of 695 CB irons. I love them when I strike them well but being a 14-18 handicap (depends on the day!) I don't always manage to strike them perfectly. So here's my situation: I'm looking at moving to (will still hang onto the CB's; sentimental value) the AP2's or the AP3's if I can get a good demo day with them.
I know that it's somewhat of a qualitative question, but how much more forgiveness will I get from the AP2's? Just to establish something from the rip, the AP1's are far too clunky for me. I try and take my game fairly seriously and continue improving, but the AP1's are too chunky for me to look at, at address. I demo'd a set and they just don't work for me.
I don't want to color yalls responses and create a bias from the start, but I'm really just looking for a slight improvement in forgiveness over the 695's in order to build a little more confidence while I work on ball-striking, while maintaining a very clean appearance.
Thank you all!
