Titleist Announces New 718 Irons: AP1 AP2 AP3 T-MB MB and CB

Is it wrong of me to be infatuated with the new Titleist 718 AP3 irons when they're only just in the seeding and validation process? I'm seriously not slobbering.  Okay I am slobbering.  That's right, Titleist is releasing AP3 series irons and word of mouth is they're the most forgiving AP iron Titleist has ever made. 

 

Titleist unveiled their new 718 series this week, including the AP1, AP2, and MB, T-MB, and CB irons, but hasn't provided a lot of detail about them yet.  Official launch is still months away, but here's what we do know. 

The AP3 irons are positioned between the AP1 and AP2 irons in the picture above, which leads me to believe they're a crossover type of iron in either direction from the AP1 and AP2 irons.  They also could serve to create an AP combo set unlike anything Titleist has done before. 

 

There doesn't appear to be an undercut cavity in the AP3, and the size is smaller than the AP1 but larger than the AP2.  The unique. almost core-like cavity back suggests we're going to see some combination of faster ball speeds without accuracy penalties. 

 

It's early, and I'll have more for you as details emerge.  But the AP3 irons have me wondering.  Sky-high long irons, power and creativity in short-game shotmaking, and bad shots that still aren't punished?  Mmm-hmm.
