The Titleist 716 AP2 Irons are a modest update of an established player's iron with familiar feel and performance and a new look.
I actually played the Titleist 714 AP2 irons for the last portion of the 2014 golf season with quite a bit of success. Like a true gear geek, I was enthusiastic for the 716 AP2 from Titleist this season, and I was eager to get my hands on them to see how one of my favorite irons of all time was updated and improved.
Again, I didn't notice a significant change in performance with the Titleist 716 AP2 irons. While we're knee deep in a culture of seeking more and more distance, the AP2 is meant to be a playable club for players looking to be accurate and in control of their game. Being arguably the most traditional equipment company in the game, Titleist is not looking to take their staple irons and turn them into golf ball rocket launchers. Titleist knows what has made their equipment successful and makes sure to keep the performance a consistent standard for their players.
