    Original (2008) Titleist AP1 vs 712 AP1

    I can get a set of original (2008) AP1's with new white golf pride VDR grips for $180. The set is in excellent condition. I would like to know if there are any THP'ers that have played both? And what is their objective opinion?

    Is the advance in technology that big that I should rather get 712 Ap1's for $400 or the new 714 Ap1's for $???

    So I went and bought the original AP1's. Can always sell them if it doesn't work out. What a pleasure to hit them on the range. Big difference coming from 690.CB's. What would have been a chunck, still flies decently. I still am able to shape them, the draw comes easier than a fade.
