The heads of the new AP1 irons are the same size as their predecessors, their most significant new feature is a progressive blade length. There are some obvious cosmetic changes but it remains to be seen what the new technology will be in the Titleist 712 irons. I am sure we will find out pretty soon, but for now just admire the images and check out what some of the Titleist staff professionals had to say when they hit their first shots with them this week.
Titleist AP1 712 Irons Features & Benefits
High quality, high technology design and construction featuring a stainless steel body, tungsten nickel sole and Tuned Feel System enhances performance and feel.
Improved, Hotter Feel
The thin face with integrated aluminum and soft elastomer Tuned Feel System in the back cavity improves sound and feel at impact for a hotter, more lively feel.
High density tungsten nickel sole bar reduces low frequency vibration for solid feel.
Perimeter weighted back flange and tungsten nickel sole bar locates the CG low and deep for increased MOI, forgiveness and stability.
Thin face, dual cavity design pushes weight to the perimeter for a hotter face and flight.
Improved Short Irons
Shorter blade length, thinner topline, and reduced visual offset deliver control and performance.
Shaft and Grip
High performance True Temper Dynamic Gold, Nippon NS Pro 950GH or Project x 5.0/5.5/6.0 steel shafts features a medium tip for control and softer butt section for feel. Titleist Tour Velvet rubber grip provides soft feel with traction.
