I am being fitted tomorrow moving from png G 15 to API any inherent characteristics I should be aware of between the two ?

1. Don't drool when you look at the AP1 versus the G15/25. Much better looking club. Important for #3.
2. With more shaft options, take the time to get the right feel. Don't rule out an AP2 until the fitter sees your swing. The only workability I have found with the AP1s are straight, shank, and slice. 98% of the time straight is good, but every now and again, a draw or cut would be nice.
3. At least at my fitting, the net price for the AP1 ended up just under the price of the G series. Pro shops set their own prices so there is some wiggle room. The G series can't even throw in a hat to seal the deal, that company is very serious on that point.

One thing is that png irons have a separation of .75* between clubs vs .5* between clubs from the 5-PW. Png Blue Dot and Titleist standard lie are the same at the 7 iron. At the 4 iron they should be close to equal and the 5 iron would about 1/2* flat for the png and 1/2* upright for the 9 iron.
I played Eye 2s before switching to AP1. Also had to account for the fact that an Eye 2 9 iron has the same loft as the AP1 PW.

The last thing I forgot to mention that most fitters will not touch a png iron to adjust loft or lie angle because of the risk of breakage. There is also an error of ~ 2* upright on what a Mitchell lie angle machine will read on a png iron. I've had some of the fitters tell me this thing. I had to send my Eye 2s back to png to flatten them from Yellow Dot to Blue Dot.
