AP2/AP3 combo irons

John S

Hi, I currently play AP2 714(2009) and I was looking to upgrade to a combo set AP3 irons 5,6,7 and 8,9,PW and Wedge. Because of the stronger lofts in the AP3 5,6 and 7 irons there would be a loft gap of 7deg between the AP3 7 iron and the AP2 8 iron. My question is can the lofts be graded between the AP3 to merge with the AP2 lofts? Any help with this would be appreciated.

Cheers John

    That is why I got the AP3 in 4/5, then AP2, only had to bend the 5 iron one degree weak, now I have 4 degrees between all the clubs. Have you thought of this set up?

    It is possible to move the lofts to lessen the gap. You could weaken the AP3 a bit and strengthen the AP2 a bit, 1° on each should do it.

    Work with a titleist fitter and a account so they can tweak what you want.

    I ordered:

    AP3 3i-4i standard loft
    AP2 5i bent 1 degree strong
    AP2 6i-PW standard loft

    I've received my 718 AP2's, 6-9 and am waiting on an AP3 5-iron that has been made 2* weak to fit into the loft-ladder of the AP2's (by degrees at least). I'm sure it won't be a PERFECT gap, I have a feeling based on what others have said that the 5-6 gap might be larger than gapping between 6-9 but will let you know!

    Thanks for all the replies. I have since had a fitting with Roddy from Titleist and he has got the loft gaps sorted for me thanks again Roddy

    can you share what they did?

    Hi Rob, the fitter Roddy suggested that we weaken the lofts by 1 and 2 degrees in the AP3 5 and 6 irons and this would then blend in with the standard lofts for the rest of the AP2 irons 7,8,9,PW and 50 deg gap wedge which I had in my original AP2 714 set. Just ordered them from Titleist and hope to be hitting them soon.
    All in all Roddy did a great job and well done to team Titleist fitting.
