The Titleist 716 AP1 iron is the longest and most forgiving iron in the entire 716 family. It’s the perfect club if you’re seeking the maximum amount of distance and forgiveness. The distance comes from an undercut cavity that spans the entirety of the golf club. It creates a large, thin and unsupported club face which will increase ball speeds and increase launch angles, both crucial elements for superior distance. There’s also a tungsten weight located in the toe of the iron to lower the center of gravity, creating even more speed and distance. By moving a majority of the weight to the toe with the tungsten, it creates a very forgiving club head.
The Titleist 716 AP1 irons are available in three through pitching wedge, W, and W2. The 716 AP1 irons have three different shaft options, the True Temper XP90 is the stock steel shaft while the MRC KuroKage 65 and 50 are the stock graphite shaft options.
