The 360-degree undercut channel creates a large, unsupported face to increase ball speed and launch angle.
Attractive, athletic build conveys control;
Thicker topline doesn’t obscure the AP1's clean setup, which tucks in nicely behind the ball;
There's plenty of help built in, but you might not notice it standing over the ball.
Leaves testers asking the same question: ""Are you sure these aren't forged?"" Well, no, but they feel pretty darn close—specific feedback and sweet, solid thwack sends the ball on its way;
Moderate weighting helps the head glide smoothly through impact.
The 716 AP1 is a smooth-handling iron that really takes flight in the hands of a more skilled, creative pilot;
Fairly repeatable, and thin shots get all the help they need;
Stronger ballstrikers looking to scare more flagsticks find a willing partner.
A nimble, swashbuckling iron that's not afraid to get dirty; high or low, left or right, it's all in play if you provide accurate instructions;
Versatility is closer to a better-player iron than it was in previous versions of the AP1.
DISTANCE CONTROL -
Plenty long when hit on the sweet spot, with standard, reliable gaps between clubs;
Simple to duplicate partial shots;
