Titleist 990 to ????


I have been hitting a set of Titleist 990's since 1998 or so. I have been looking to upgrade and have hit the 716 AP2's and CB's. I am having a hard time deciding which would be the best fit. The CB's feel the closest to my current irons. Several have tried to steer me towards the AP2's but the they just don't feel quite as soft. I would like to hear some opinions from those who have played the CB's and get some recommendations. I am 8 handicap if that helps in recommending one over the other. Thank you ahead of time for taking the time to share your advice.

    I know the feeling, I'm still playing with my 82OS from around 2002. I went to a fitting day about 2 months ago and tried both the CB and AP2's. The pro suggested the AP2's for me as they are more forgiving. I was playing off around 18 then, I'm around 14 now, as I hadn't played much for many years.
    I haven't bought any new clubs yet and I'm waiting for the AP3's to be released. I also like the C16 concept irons but they are really expensive. They look like they fit between the CB's and AP2's.

    My opinion, get fit. It's the best way to find out which head/shaft combo is best for your swing. Along with getting fit....wait for the 718s!

    Yup, get fit from a Certified Titleist fitter. Try everything you want and what they suggest. Look at the numbers and see what feels best. I thought I was going to get CB's but the distance, dispersion and feel made me go with AP2's.

    See a Certified Fitter.... I switched from 716 AP1 to 716 CB and love the feel and accuracy. My handicap has dropped from 8.3 to 6.8 and the loss of distance was made up with accuracy. I am not sure titleist will continue with the CB model so you may want to wait on the 18's.

    I gamed the 990's for years until last lear. Got fitted for some new sticks. To my slap in the face wake up call I hit reg flex AP1's the best. Hard to get used to the look but got over it. Now I'm hitting better then ever (62 years old) .Good luck and get fitted.
