Titleist released their new product 712 Iron Series including AP1 Irons, Titleist AP2 712 Irons and MB Irons. Titleist has long used “700” numbers for irons for a long time. It uses 900 numbers for metal woods. The “7″ stands for irons, while the “12″ stands for the new model year, 2012. Acushnet says the feedback it receives during this validation process influences the design and specifications of the Titleist products available in golf shops around the world.
The New Titleist 712 AP2 Irons are more forgiving and more distance control, which are designed for low handicappers. It gives the player more consistent ball speed over a larger area of the face. Titleist’s most advanced multi-material designs which deliver superior distance control through increased moment-of-inertia (MOI) which also provides outstanding solid feel.
The 712 AP2 irons have a more square profile than before, a feature specifically requested by Titleist’s Tour players. A forged carbon steel head is aided by a high-density tungsten weight, creating increased playability. A dual cavity design pushes weight to the perimeter for playability without losing the ability to shape shots. The Tuned Feel System is a co-molded medallion of soft elastomeric and aluminums plate.
The Titleist 712 AP2 Irons feature a uniform muscle shape that provides more mass behind the impact area to achieve the quintessential soft, solid feel. This weighting also produces consistent launch angle, backspin and ball speed in order to provide precise distance and shot control demanded by better players. AP2 Irons are classic muscle back forged irons that deliver the looks, feel and performance highly-skilled players demand.
Titleist says, have been “significantly upgraded” for additional forgiveness and higher ball speeds. The AP2 712 irons are targeted at highly skilled golfers and are forged and also have thinner sole widths in the 8, 9 and PW. The new with classic design and traditional feel and responsiveness will give your more enthusiasts.
