HIGH. SPEED. Player's Iron, meet Forgiveness.
Let's get right into it shall we? There's a lot of technology surrounding the brand new Titleist AP3 Irons and we're here to help break that down, and explain some of the key differences between the different lines.
The ALL NEW Titleist AP3 irons fall somewhere between the well known AP1 and AP2 lines. With players distance, the AP3's are a hollow-blade iron. This hollow-blade construction produce ideal launch and distance while the L-face inserts account for the stopping power needed in long irons. Arguably the sweetest part of the AP3 Irons is the look - the forgiveness of a game-improvement iron, packed into the look and feel of a players iron. To get an idea, this iron combines the distance and forgiveness of the AP1 with the look and feel of the AP2.
The Engineers at Titleist sought out to maximize the long iron ball speed and launch while optimizing the launch and spin through the remainder entire set. Irons 3-7 feature the HSS L-face insert and a cast 17-4 stainless construction with High-density tungsten weights that account for 1/3 of the total head-weight. Irons 8-9 Also feature the 17-4 body, but this time with a 17-4 face insert while P-W are a solid cast 17-4 body/face.
