I am sure this has been asked but I figured I would ask it myself. Going for a fitting thurs, and looking to get new irons. My issue is that I am 6 handicap who really doesn't really work his iron shots, beyond a knock down or punch. I have always played AP2 because I loved they way they looked all compact, and really valued feel. Issue is when I get a little off, my iron shots will miss the green... usual side effect of a "players" club.
I have been thinking that I might have to look into more forgiving irons, but have been reluctant due to looks and feel. I am starting think that is just stubborn, and it may really help me improve my handicap if I can turn a slight miss into a GIR.
The nut of my question is that would the AP3 be forgiving enough or should I go straight to AP1? AP3 has more of the look, but since it's not distance I am after I am unsure how forgiving they are compared to AP2... I know they are longer, but are they also straigher? AP1's I know are as forgiving as it will get but they are a departure from my normal profile. If I blend would where would folks suggest stopping the AP1's at? 6 or 7 iron?
