The new Titleist 714 AP1 and AP2 irons feature precise, progressive designs developed by the Titleist Golf Clubs R&D team to produce optimum launch, trajectory and distance.
Advanced CG height progression, precisely into both models, creates higher launching long irons and flatter launching short irons for more carry distance to help players stop the ball on the green, closer to the hole.
Titleist R&D utilised innovative tungsten weighting and manufacturing technologies to make both sets forgiving without the need for oversized heads.
Tungsten weighting in the long and mid irons help produce higher MOI (moment of inertia), increasing the speed on miss-hits to provide consistent distance without sacrificing workability.
Titleist engineers say that the new AP1 irons are the longest, most forgiving iron the brand has ever made.
The multi-material, dual cavity design is aimed at players that want maximum distance, forgiveness and solid feel from a progressive game improvement head.
The new AP2 set is a multi-material, forged design that offers distance with trajectory control and forgiveness with workability.
"When it comes to iron play, distance without the ability to stop your shot is meaningless. You have to hit the ball far enough to reach the green, but also have the proper ball flight to stop it near the hole," said Steve Pelisek, General Manager, Titleist Golf Clubs.
"What our R&D team has accomplished with the new AP1 and AP2 models is impressive, effectively taking each individual iron as its own design and optimising its performance to provide longer distance, more consistent distance and stopping control, even when you don't hit a shot perfectly."
The new Titleist AP1 and AP2 (714 Series) irons will be available from November 8th.
The AP1 irons have an RRP of £93 (steel shaft) and £107 per club (graphite) and the AP2 irons have an RRP of £114 (steel) and £130 (graphite) per club.
