    I have a set of 716 AP2's 5 tp P.W and a wedge setup of 50/54/58 SM7 vokey's all were custom fitted. I'm considering changing to 718 AP3's probably next year. My dilemma is the AP2 P.W is 46° so my wedge setup fits in perfectly, now the AP3 P.W is 43° giving a 7° gap to my 50°. Do I get a 46° vokey which will then only give me a gap of only 3° between AP3 P.W. & 50°. I don't want to change my weďges as they're not very old. I could look at a combination set of AP2/AP3 but then somewhere within the set I'm faced with a 5°, 6°, 7° gap. My gut tells me to just get a 46° wedge. If the AP3 lofts were a degree or two weaker then no problem. I really like Titleist equipment, but why do they have to make things complicated.

    Then you'd have an 8 degree gap to the 54. A 48 would be 5/6 degrees. But try to get fit for a wedge to decide how to best fill the actual distance gap between the PW and 54. 4 degree spreads are a guide, but many pros will often have 3 wedges with 6 degree gaps.
  3. Hi Richard,

    I would recommend attending one of our fitting events where one of our expert Product Specialists will be able to work with you on a launch monitor to find the best loft & set composition for your game. You can find your nearest event here www.titleist.co.uk/events.

    I know that we have an event being held at Bourn GC tomorrow which is not too far from St Neots but it's worth checking to see if they will allow non members to attend as some venues do not.

    Alternatively you can look to book yourself in for a fitting here at the St Ives National Fitting Centre. This can be booked online here (www.titleist.co.uk/.../national-fitting-centres) or this can be booked through any authorised Titleist retailer.

    Hope this helps.

    Kind regards

    I just weakened the AP3 PW to 45, and the 9 iron to 40. Wedges are 50,54,58
