AP2s with Project X

Hi Doug-

I'm very sorry if I put any doubt into your mind on your acquisition of the AP2s with this string of posts.  Let me tell you that you will indeed love the irons.  I love the feel, and the looks, and the added confidence addressing the ball.  I'm just working thru a shaft issue and I know once I get properly fitted my AP2s will be the best irons I've played.

Hi Ryan-

Thanks for your reply.  Would you have any recommended fitters in the Los Angeles area?  I was planning to drive down to Carlsbad Golf Center.
It has been frustrating but I know I'll work thru the issue.  I love these irons and intend to get fitted with the right shaft.

Thanks-

I don't know anyone personally in LA, so I've asked Titleist to recommend one for you.  I'd love to send you to TPI if you are driving to Carlsbad!

Hi Dominic,  As always, our number one fitter in the LA/SD area would be our Tour facility at O'side.  We conduct our fittings outside on grass with a Trackman launch monitor.  You will be treated and experience the fitting as a Tour player.  The fitting for irons would take about 1 hour and the cost would be $150.00.  If you live in northern LA, there is an Advanced FittingWorks center in Goleta at Twin Lakes and the fitter there is Don Parsons.  Tustin Ranch/Erik Horve is in Tustin, CA and Carsbad Golf Center/Lee Sanudo in Carlsbad are also Advanced FittingWorks Centers. 

 

Hi Cathi!

Thanks for your reply.  I think I'll plan to visit the TPI to straighten this all out, perhaps this weekend!  I'm in Redonod Bch so it will be a pleasant drive down, plus I'm on the right side of Carmegeddon!! 
Is there anyone in particular I should speak with when I call to set up a session?  While I'm there I'll probably make sure my 910 D3 with Kalai Blue 75 Stiff is the proper set-up.  Thanks agains.

Dominic

When you are ready to come down, give us a call at Team Titleist and we can set that up for you.  Right now, we still have a couple of openings at the end of July.  Definitely bring your driver as they will want to take a baseline on it to see how well it is performing for you.

I switched from TM to AP2s with Project X 6.0's. I quickly found out, by comparing the lofts, that TM's clubs are a club strong because I was hitting the AP2s shorter also. The Frequency of Project X shafts is also measured at a 4 iron so by the time you get to a shorter iron the club is very very stiff. I ended up getting 5.5's instead of 6.0's. I know exactly what you are feeling, hope this helps.

I have AP2 710's with a Project X 5.5 shaft. I consider my self a beginner. I went to a golf store and they told me I would never improve using these irons. They suggested I use the TM RBZ irons with a regular flex steel shaft. Any opinions on this?

First off from what u said about your previous set, you alluded to a 15 yard gap for a reference 8 iron 150 to 160 9 iron 130 to 145. From 130 to 160 should be covered by 3 clubs. I'm a plus 2 handicap and my average swing speed is between 115 and 118 according to track man. I hit the ap2 712s with Kbs tour x flex shafts. I carry my 8 iron on average 155 yards. I think maybe you just need more data to make a conclusion on your shots. Don't get so wrapped up in yardage differences between other sets bc lofts and shafts won't cost anyone 20 yards with an 8 iron unless the weight and shaft flex are dramatically different.  If you lost 20 yards your more than likely scooping your new irons.  Try making sure you are hitting those shots with forward shaft lean at impact and not just scoop chunking your new clubs. Then once you are hitting it solidly take your old irons and compare to new ones with identical swing. Distances shouldn't vary more than 5-7 yards depending on trajectory. Swing speed being the constant. And spin rate being lower should flatten the ball flight which is what your new project x shafts should do for u.
