Building upon the high technology design and resounding success of the original AP irons, Titleist introduces the new high performance AP1 irons for avid golfers. The Titleist AP1 are multi-material, dual cavity irons that take the design mission of "Advanced Performance You Can Feel" to new heights.
The concept for the original Advanced Performance irons arose as a result of research that indicated serious golfers want performance with great feel, not performance at the expense of feel. The Titleist R&D team’s advanced research group has been conducting extensive sound and vibration analysis aimed at reducing the harsh lower frequency vibration that causes poor feel in irons. This research led to combining several technologies and materials in the back cavity of the new AP irons resulting in a new Tuned Feel System to take feel to a new level.
The new Tuned Feel System is a co-molded medallion of soft elastomer and aluminium plate. This insert has been specifically designed to improve the sound and feel of each new iron. For the thinner face, larger cavity AP1 a hotter, more lively feel has been enhanced. Extensive improvements to the new AP1 structure include reducing the face thickness to provide enhanced heel, toe, and deep weighting to the frame and moving the tungsten nickel material to the sole resulting in increased stability and forgiveness.
Advanced Performance 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 aluminium and soft elastomer Tuned Feel System in the back cavity improves sound and feel at impact for a hotter, more lively feel.
Solid Feel High density tungsten nickel sole bar reduces low frequency vibration for solid feel.
More Forgiving Perimeter weighted back flange and tungsten nickel sole bar locates the CG low and deep for increased MOI, forgiveness and stability.
Hotter Flight 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 Nippon NS Pro 105T lightweight shaft features a medium tip for control and softer butt section for feel. Titleist Tour Velvet rubber grip provides soft feel with traction.
