I've played the AP1 all of 2013. Love them. I think you will be amazed at the forgiveness and potential of these irons. Keep us posted and let us know how they feel. Best to you!

You should find that the feel/feedback from the AP1s will be much better than the Pings. At least I do.
Above all, get fit outside with a Trackman. I used Titleist fitter (look for one on the Titleist website) and felt it was a great decision, so I'd recommend going that route.
Typically, they charge a nominal fee for a fitting, and it is worth it. Sometimes they credit the fitting fee towards a purchase with them. There prices are the same as the big box scores. But, the service you receive from a fitter is beyond compare.

Thanks for your reply. Sounds like these are great irons and I' m going to get fitted this winter Here in Marblehead, oh it's time to put the clubs away and go ice fishing. Thanks again. Marc

It was down to G20 vs AP1 for me when the 912s came out. Equal in performance and I liked the smaller sole of the AP1. The G's are 1/4 inch shorter than the Titleist, and during the fitting, we had to go to custom length up 1/4 inch, stock w/Titleist If you were in your 50's then you need to get fit - Father Time is cruel to us in the "new 50" age range. The stock shafts are light weight and the fitter can find something that is just for you. I have A-flex in the former stock ADs, but I loved the new graphite in R flex when I tried the 714s last week. Titleist is definitely moving to market shafts for stock and not the "made for OEM" shafts. Depending on how you use your shorter irons, you might want to look as mixing in some AP2s for more workability. I have a hard time trying to draw or fade the AP1s. Keep going straigtht, dang it.

I have always played AP2 and this season I switched to the 714 AP1 irons. I really like what they did with these irons. They are great.
