Forgiving vs Feel

I'm currently playing the AP1's and have learned to hit them well. My only gripe is they feel squishy and un-workable. I hit the MB's at a local course last weekend and they felt great. The ability to control the shots was amazing. Is it possible an 11 handicap is ready for a set of MB's? Would it be a mistake to get MB's rather than the AP2's?

Thanks for thoughts!

If your ball striking and consistency are manageable with the 714 MB, then you can certainly play them.  Know that a majority of the players playing these irons have low single digit handicaps, but that doesn't necessarily mean you could not play them.  If you are looking for a little more forgiveness with a workability option, I would recommend trying the 714 AP2.  This is a forged iron that is much more forgiving then the MB, but will be a more workable option then the AP1.




How much less workable are the AP2's than the MB's?

i have 690 mb and im probably a 7 or 8 handicap i dont keep one but i think i am going to try next year. but i love blades they really make you have great ball striking and distance control and ability to hit knockdowns and control distances really well. i say go for it!
