Titleist 716 AP1

The Titleist 716 AP1 irons are hands down, the longest and most forgiving irons Titleist have ever made. The undercut cavity extends 360 degrees around the entire clubhead. This creates a large and thin clubface that is unsupported. This design increases speed and launch angles to maximize the distance of every golf shot. They’ve increased the amount of tungsten in the clubhead, which allows for stronger lofts due to the lower center of gravity – another way you’ll gain distance. The tungsten also aids with the forgiveness of the clubhead by creating the largest sweet spot of any iron with similar size.

The Titleist 716 AP2 iron is a supercharged version of the Titleist 714 AP2 iron. It’s for those that are seeking a design that’s trusted by Tour players and packed with distance, forgiveness and superior feel. Much like the Titleist 716 AP1 iron, these feature the use of tungsten. Although the 716 AP2 irons don’t have much, overall tungsten weight, it does help lower and perfectly align the center of gravity to a precise location to deliver more speed at impact.  The feel and forgiveness come from an advanced and innovative construction, which includes the use of tungsten, to increase the speed on miss-struck shots.
