What is the loft of a Titleist AP1 718 pitching wedge?
Smash factors were routinely above 1.4 in my launch monitor testing, which is very high for an iron. Despite the strong lofts (the AP1 is a club stronger than the AP2 in the long irons), these irons launch the ball high enough to create loads of distance. The spin is pretty low, so you’ll see very strong ball flight.
What is the new Titleist AP1?
The Titleist AP1 are multi-material, dual cavity irons that take the design mission of “Advanced Performance You Can Feel” to new heights.
What degree is W wedge?
Occasionally referred to as an attack (AW) or utility wedge (UW), these wedges tend to carry a loft of around 50 to and 53 degrees.
Are Titleist AP1 irons good for high handicappers?
These irons are great because they are well-suited to players who are new to the sport and have a high handicap. You then need to spend some time out on the course, playing with the Titleist 718 AP1 irons to ensure they’re the perfect fit for you.
What is the difference between AP1 AP2 and AP3?
The AP3 went just as far as the AP1, and also had a tighter dispersion than the AP2. The AP2 had a lot of spin which is why it went much shorter; the shortage in distance had a lot to do with the high launch angle. As you can tell the AP1 and AP3 average about 5 mph more ball speed than the 718 AP2.
Is AP1 forged?
Performance. The AP1 irons are Titleist’s most forgiving irons. They have the edge on the AP1 irons in terms of feel and playability. The heads are forged from soft carbon steel, which provides an improved feel, while the dual-cavity design adds a stability that aids shot shaping and control.
Is Titleist AP1 good?
The AP1 is the largest, longest and most forgiving iron in the 718 family. It benefits from a new progressive construction, ranging from hollow-body long irons to undercut cavity mid and short irons, to provide the best combination of distance and trajectory for each individually-designed iron.
Does Titleist still make AP1?
Titleist realised that they were missing a gap in the market. Now Titleist has readdressed the situation with the T Series. The T100 replaces the AP2; the T200 comes in for the AP3 and the T300 replaces the AP1.
Are Titleist 718 CB forgiving?
The total amount of tungsten is the same as the 716 CB at around 70g, but using it in the caps moves more weight to the heel and toe increasing the MOI and making the 718 CB more forgiving than the 716 AP2.
Are Titleist AP1 irons good for beginners?
The Ap1 was one of the first irons to really stand out as an option for the higher handicap golfers that want to play with Titleist golf clubs. Ap1 irons are lightweight, easy to launch, and can help even the newest golfer learn what makes a Titleist golf iron better.
