Titleist 716 AP1
Our Review:Long known as a better-players brand, Titleist has reached out to a wider audience in recent years, and this iron is an example. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a middle-handicapper seeking to get in single digits or the better player for whom the mid-70s is now a once-a-year occurrence. The use of tungsten in the lower toe increases forgiveness, and a deep-cut cavity helps launch the ball high, especially on the stronger-lofted irons. Also, the lightweight True Temper XP90 steel shafts are ideal for this player segment.
Specs: 6-iron: 28 degrees; PW: 43
