    I purchased a used set of 712 AP2s 4-9 irons from my local Roger Dunn. They came with DG TI S400 1/2 inch long ordered directly from Titleist and I like the swingweight but I play my irons at standard length. I had an extra set of DG TI X100s at standard length so I put those in but the swingweight came out much lighter than I like. Are the irons assembled with lighter heads to offset the extra 1/2 length? With the S400s, swingweight as D4. With the X100s, swingweight came out to D0. I'm thinking of just putting the S400s back in exchanging them. 

    So my question would be in regards to the heads, are they just lighter b/c of the extra length?

    No. I would check your club lengths and grip weight/layers of tape...

    If the irons were ordered from Titleist at 1/2' long, Titleist most likely would have made sure the heads lightened to accommodate the extra length. Typically, there is an adjustment of 3 swing weights for every 1/2" of length adjustment.

    Titleist, may have a lighter head to partially offset the increase of in swing weight, but, may not have one six grams lighter to offset the full increase of 3 swing weight points- heavier grips would also decrease the swing weight- 5 grams equals one swing weight point. When clubs are ordered extra length Titleist would use their standard weight head as they cannot assume the intent of the purchaser who may actually want the higher swing weight. If the desired swing weight is stated with the order Titleist will advise if they are unable to meet it and the decision can then be made by the purchaser whether to proceed and/or make necessary adjustments.
