|Titleist 710 AP2 Iron Review|
Thanks for taking the time to read my reviews, as I hope I can give you some insight and assistance on you future possible purchase of these clubs. Just for some background information so that you know what kind of golfer is testing these, here is my profile- I am 6 feet tall, 250 lbs; I have a 110 MPH club speed, and I have a steep downswing towards impact. I play blades for my own personal set, and I am a 5 handicap. I play standard loft, lie and length, with x-stiff shafts in all of my clubs. I am now using a Levitee Glove, and if you haven’t tried one of these then you re literally leaving easy strokes and consistency out of your game. So without further adieu, here are my thoughts on the Titleist 710 AP2 Irons.
Looks- Titleist is a classic company, always have been, and always will be. This being said, these look good enough to take on a date. The Titleist AP2 irons have an amazingly thin top line when looking down at address, which is what the majority of golfers are looking for. The AP2 irons look like a blade at address, and that goes from the 3 iron all the way through the PW. I would rate the looks of the Titleist AP2 iron at a 10/10.
Feel/ Playability- Since I have played with the Titleist AP2, my confidence and ballstriking has gone through the roof. Even though these are a forged iron, the feel of these does not feel like the normal, hard-to-hit forged club. The Titleist AP2 has an unwarranted limit of playability as well. With the clubhead and topline being small and thin, the ability to get creative and play shots you can dream about becomes a reality. If you are one of the golfers out there who has always wanted to play a forged iron, but was afraid of having little to no forgiveness, get to a golf shop and get yourself a set of the Titleist AP2’s. The feel and playability of these clubs would be rated at a 9.7/ 10.
Performance- Performance is everything in this game. Why would one buy a set of irons if they weren’t going to improve your game? Look no further folks, the Titleist AP2 are here to save your game. If you enjoy playing high fades, baby cuts, Bubba shots, and such, the AP2 are where you will find the ability to play them. Forgiveness of these irons obviously is not the same as a game improvement iron, but for a forged iron, there is no competitor. The performance rating for the Titleist AP2 would be an easy 9/10.
Overall/ Final grade- There’s no real guessing here as to how I feel about the Titleist AP2 irons. They are the long irons of my own personal set, and I would not have it any other way. If you are looking to get into a forged set of irons, the Titleist AP2 is the way to go. You will have the playability and ball flight of a tour professional, but the forgiveness that the average golfer is looking for. Stay tuned for the next review of the rest of my set of clubs, the Titleist 710 MB. My overall grade for the Titleist 710 AP2 is an easy A. Enjoy!
