    Is there a major difference between the CB's and the AP2's? More forgiving, more distance, more control? Always curious to get feedback from people who play the clubs versus the club write ups on sites. Any info would be appreciated.

    The CB's are harder to hit consistently, they aren't as forgiving as the AP2's. I enjoy the feel and response I get from the CB's vs the AP2's. The "sweet spot" is smaller on the CB's, but again it is a trade off for feel for me.

    as Kyle mentioned. the AP2's are a lot easier to hit the sweet spot and more forgiving. i've tried hitting the CB's and the few times i hit them, i did hit the sweet spot and they felt great. though my misses were not pretty. head over to a shop and try them out.

    It's funny, I expected what Kyle J mentioned. However, when I attended a Titleist Rep fitting, the CBs out performed the AP2s on pure hits and miss hits. It may have just been my swing that day.

    My misses are thin and toe. It may have been that I was hitting a 7i. One of the 'forgiveness' features of the CBs is on toe hits. In the fitting I lost 7 yards on toe hits with the CBs, and 10 yards on toe hits with the AP2s. My misses on thin hits were very close and harder to judge, due to roll-out conditions.

    I love my CBs. They've help reduce my HCI from 20-22 to 13.

    I'd say, at the very least, hit them both in the same demo, or get a fitting. And go with an open mind.

    Good Luck!
  5. Ryan,
    I was in the same boat you are when I was trying to decide between the CBs and AP2s. For me the AP2s performed better during my fitting, but as we all preach on here go for a fitting and try both and see what works best for you.

    Merry Christmas

    According to the Maltby Playability Factor Chart, the CB's are actually more forgiving.

    I actually like what my instructor said when I was trying to decide what clubs to purchase I looked at Orlimar, Wilson, Spalding, and even Ap1 before I decided to get AP2's.

    Do you want clubs to just get by or get clubs that will better your game and learn to hit them

    I demo'd both, chose the CB's, better ballflight vs. Forgiveness. Depends on ball striking ability.
  9. I hit the 718 ap2's and they did feel good. The distance was good but then I tried the 718cb's and they went further and feel great. If you dont like the looks of a club, never get it. Either club is nice looking but in my opinion the CB's have a better feel. I have the 4,5,6 irons in cb and mb in the 7,8,9, and pw irons.
