Titleist 718 AP3 Black Iron Set
Who’s It For?
The Players-Distance iron category is growing quickly in the golf marketplace, and Titleist quickly took action by producing the 718 AP3 irons. These irons were engineered with the best characteristics from their AP1 and AP2 siblings to include a progressive construction aimed at providing both distance and forgiveness without a clunky look at address. The high polish black finish to the 718 AP3 Black irons creates a sleek appearance that inspires speed. These irons are best suited for mid- to low-handicap golfers looking for more distance from their irons. Golfers searching for more workability will prefer the 718 AP2 irons, while those in need of more forgiveness will want to look at the 718 AP1 irons.
The Tech Story
Titleist struck a terrific balance between its AP1 line and its AP2 line with the release of the 718 AP3 irons. The AP1 irons offer the the best in forgiveness and distance among Titleist irons, while the AP2 irons have been very successful at the professional level with their workability and precision. The 718 AP3 Black irons offer the best characteristics from both irons to present one of the most compact distance irons on the market. High-density tungsten perimeter weighting as been positioned in the heel and the toe to promote forgiveness and resist twisting when the ball is struck off-center. The progressive design reduces the size of the cavity down the set, so that more high-launch characteristics are available with the longer irons and more scoring traits are available in the shorter irons. While specializing in distance, these irons do retain shot-shaping ability with the help of the L-Face inserts that help the ball for stopping power and workability. New in 2019 is the high polish black finish option for the 718 AP3 irons, presenting a sleek look that inspires speed at address.
