Titleist AP1 Forged Irons Korea Spec Model - Titleist Japan had the VG3 series along with theCold Forged Vokey and full release T-MB 716 irons on top of the full selection of retail models that Titleist offers, Korea has always had only 1 exclusive model and this year again its the AP1 Forged iron but in the latest 716 series.
The AP1 Forged is a cavity back with distance and forgiveness in mind It features a deeper undercut cavity creating a low CG, the lofts are strong and both heel and toe have tungsten weights to keep MOI up. All around these are very similar to the standard release AP1's but where it differs greatly is in feel, the Korea Only AP1 "Forged" Irons feel closely related to the VG3 and T-MB irons and we are thankful for that.
Designed as Titleist's most forgiving forged CB these are mid sized irons they are not small nor are they big I would say that they cover a wide range of skill levels from pro to high handicap and what I mean by pro is senior tour level or ladies tour not so much PGA tour as those guys prefer compact sized iron heads.
With the undercut it's thin face has more rebound for faster ball speeds, with the tungsten not only is the MOI higher but weight distribution is more balanced and combine strong lofts with better ball speed and you have a recipie similar to the T-MB in that for an MB it was much longer and easier to hit than the other blades, well same here for it's size these are more forgiving than one would expect.
The 716 AP1 Forged will not be easy to get, they are only sold in Korea and not even Japan has them. TSG currently has a limited supply in NS950 (HT) Regular 4-PW Only.
