I sent this a couple of days ago under the "golf club" topic but as of now it is 17th down the list so I'm trying as a "general" post. I am considering buying new 714 AP 1's in December, but because I'm retired money is an issue. I currently play the 2008 AP 1's and I love them. I noticed that the longer clubs of the 714's are the same lofts as the ones I already have while the shorter clubs have been strengthened (which I like). So, my question is, what would be the performance difference between the 714 4-6 irons vs. the 2008 4-6 irons? If I can save $300+ without a large drop off in performance I might just do that. Hopefully I can get a quick answer as I just received an e-mail from Edwin Watts that they are taking pre-orders for the 714 line-up. Thanks for the help.
