Titleist AP2 712 Iron Set

Sunday, November 6th, 2011

Titleist’s new AP2 712 Iron Set is one of the most anticipated club launches for 2012.  They were an immediate hit on all professional tours and were put in play by almost all Titleist staff players including Adam Scott, Nick Watney, Webb Simpson, and Bill Hass.  The AP2 712 is a high performance player’s cavity back and when compared to the previous AP2 710, the 712 stays true to the design mission of “Advanced Performance with Feel”  however the 712 is much cleaner in appearance and more forgiving than its predecessor.  Sleeker contours and a squarer toe makes the top line look thinner at address and the narrower sole width helps the club glide through the turf much faster.  The biggest improvement over the previous AP2 models is how forgiving the 712 is despite the reduction in size.  This is made possible by two large tungsten weights placed in the heel and toe of the club in the hollow cavity located on the sole of the club.  This greater distribution of mass to the perimeter of the club raises the MOI without changing the center of gravity location of the blade length of the club.  The higher MOI also provides greater ball speeds across the entire hitting surface for improved distance control.  The AP2 712 irons come equipped with True Temper Dynamic Gold shafts however a wide variety of options are available through Titleist’s custom department.
