712U vs. 712 AP1

Chase N

I currently have 712 AP2's 4-PW, and 910H hybrid and 910F fairway wood(for reference: 910 D2 driver).  I'm very used to using irons though, only got the hybrid and fairway wood last year.

My question is this: if I were to replace my hybrid/wood combo and go to irons, would I be better off with 2 & 3 irons in 712U or AP1?

I'm mid-handicap and I have good iron play.  And like I said, I really don't hit the hybrid or fairway wood well consistently, much as I try.

    Chase, I know that Titleist does not make 2 irons for the AP1s. I have 712 AP1s 4-9, and the 4 iron is relatively easy to hit. You probably wouldn't have much of an issue hitting a 3 iron, but remember, Hybrids are much easier to hit, and launch the ball much higher. It's easier to hit the green with a 3 Hybrid because the trajectory with the hybrid is like a short iron. A 3 iron is very difficult to hit high in the air and sit the ball on the green. The ball is likely to run once it hits the ground. I know you said you don't hit your hybrids consistently- neither do I. I find hitting my 3 hybrid off the ground more difficult than anything. Just something to keep in mind.

    I hear you.  However, the hybrid(and fairway wood) aren't helpful if I can't say with confidence where I'm going to hit them!

    I had a 3 iron in my last set(which were almost blades) and I used to hit it well.

    Does anyone with experience using the 712U's have an opinion on this?

    I have tried to displace my DCI Gold 1-iron for quite a few years now; the 712U hasn't been able to do it.

    Something about that particular iron that has kept it, and its 2-iron sibling, in my bag since they were new. The trajectory is not ideal for tight greens, but I can hit them reliably.
