Titleist AP3 718 Vs. Titleist T300 Irons Comparison Overview
If you are looking for a set of irons that will help with distance and improve your accuracy a little bit, then you would do well by shopping Titleist irons first.
The thing we love about Titleist distance irons is that they don’t feel like distance irons.
They don’t feel clunky, awkward or sound hollow. This is especially true when you play the Titleist AP3 718 and the Titleist T300 irons.
Both are designed for exceptional feel and distance but which one does a better job of combining the two? Find out in the following article.
Titleist T300 Irons Overview
The Titleist T300 irons are built for the player who wants maximum distance off the deck and who may struggle a bit with accuracy.
For the T300’s, Titleist broke down and used variable face thickness technology which is prominent is prominent in the clubs of other manufacturers who shall remain nameless in this article.
This feature helps push ball speed on off-center strikes.
The chrome heads of these irons are also generously sized which becomes apparent at point of address.
If you are a mid handicapper trying to break into single digit handicap territory, you will feel right at home with these clubs.
The solid chrome gives these clubs a good, consistent feel and the polymer core does in fact help with distance. We were getting upwards of 180 yards with the 4 iron in this set.
Titleist AP3 718 Irons Overview
The Titleist AP3 718 feature a unique design that crosses cavity back and muscle back. The result is a fast set of irons that looks great at point of address.
The Titleist AP3 718 irons are billed as player’s distance irons. However, we feel like they are a little more player’s irons than they are distance irons.
We were getting an average of 10 fewer yards with these irons compared to the T300’s.
The head was also slightly smaller so they are a bit less forgiving. However, the L-shaped 17-4 stainless steel face inserts of these irons gave them a superior feel to the T300’s. They are also easier to work around the green.
The T300’s provide more distance but have lesser feel. The Titleist AP3 718’s sacrifice distance for short-game performance; but they still feel solid. So if you’re looking for a pure distance iron, we would recommend the Titleist T300 irons.
