The Titleist AP1 712 Irons are dual-cavity irons evolved from the original AP1 Irons released in 2009.
The stainless steel body and high-density tungsten sole weight in the AP1 712 irons offer increased forgiveness and feel, with a slightly different look. Titleist have managed to increase the MOI (Moment of Inertia) by 4% creating more forgiveness in the long irons, and higher ball speeds on off-center hits throughout the set. The progressively reduced blade length means improved feel and control with the short irons. The 712 AP1s have a traditional head-shape with a bevelled topline aimed to improve confidence at address.
The grooves on the Titleist AP1 712s are modified U grooves that conform with the R&A and USGA specifications.

The Titleist AP1 712 irons feature two tungsten weights in the sole of the club that increases the MOI of the club without having to make the head longer. This means that it is very forgiving for its size and Titleist say the shot disperson is smaller than the previoius AP1 model. Certainly we found it to be very easy to hit and pretty forgiving, even if the trajectory was a little higher than the similar sized CB iron.
At address the heads look a little more compact and the topline appears thinner, but it actually is the same size, but looks smaller thanks to some extra polishing and visual tweaking. The sweetspot is not as big as the AP2s as yoiu would expect but the offset is smaller and this is an iron ideally suited to the low handicap player. Titleist are quietly confident that the AP1 will outsell the AP2 and with the 712 version of the Titliest AP1 iron we would have to say it has every chance with single figure golfers.
