Many golfers have been enjoying the benefits Titleist's 718 AP3 and AP2 irons, and these will soon be available with the added dimension of limited all-black editions to this popular range.

Available from March 1st, the new 718 AP3 Black and 718 AP2 Black irons are finished with a sleek, High Polish Black PVD coating to create a look that stands apart.

True Temper AMT Onyx shafts – with a powder coat matte black finish that helps minimise glare – and an all-black Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 grip complement the technically striking blacked-out setup.

The development of AP3 Black and AP2 Black was inspired by requests from the PGA Tour, where Titleist has been the #1 iron since 2005, and members of Team Titleist. The finish on AP3 Black and AP2 Black will wear similar to the Jet Black coating on SM7 wedges.

JOSH TALGE, VICE PRESIDENT, GOLF CLUB MARKETING, SAID: “Since we added AP3 to our lineup last fall, more and more golfers are experiencing the game-changing speed and forgiveness of this hollow-blade construction, while AP2 continues to set the standard for tour played iron technology. One request we heard from both tour players and amateurs, particularly those who have gravitated toward our Jet Black Vokey SM7 wedges, was if they could have these same irons in a darker finish. Our team spent a lot of time making sure the aesthetics were done just right. It’s a look that you just have to see.”

718 AP3 TECHNOLOGY:

718 AP3 is the player’s distance iron. An innovative hollow-blade design with high-speed face technology, AP3 merges everything R&D has learned from creating and advancing AP1 and AP2 irons to produce the longest, fastest Titleist player’s iron ever. “AP3 truly represents the best of both worlds,” Talge said. “We’re giving you the distance and forgiveness of a game improvement iron packed into the look and feel of a player’s iron.”
