Just want to gather feedback which iron would you buy given that both is of the same pricing? Both looks good but AP2 seems to be more forgiving?

714CB is a true player's club ... It is actually as less forgiving as the 714MB albeit 714CB is a semi-muscle blade ... Many people thought 714CB being a semi-muscle blade, it is more forgiving than 714MB ... This is untrue ... If you really wanna invest in one of these set, I suggest you make it a point to attend their demo sessions to try up various irons available and the various shafts available too ...

Hi recall1977. As what bro turbo said, its good to demo first.
I havent tried the 714s but i was lucky to have tried the 712MB and gamed the 710CB on a recent trip to Jakarta. I fooled around with a pal's AP2 710 here whenever we ranged together. I am using the MP52 (and 712CB now). So not really apple to apple comparison.
I find that the MB and CB is just slightly more challenging to use than AP2s. It really pushed me to swing properly. To me (yes, some of you will find it weird) it translate to more fun. But seriously, swinging the blades on turf and seeing the ball launch is kinda orgasmic.
If you have the chance at the demo, try all combinations of both heads and shaft. I feel that what clubs u decide use is basically how you wanna approach the game of golf. I'm a lousy golfer, who is making the game harder for myself. But I find it's more satisfying this way. So take my views with a tablespoon of salt.

I managed to demo the 714 AP2s. Compared to my current 710 AP2s which I'm gaming, it is definitely longer while maintaining it's forgiveness.
The CB however was less forgiving and much harder to use.

Thanks bros for the feedback! Will be going for one of the titleist demo day. Personally, I preferred AP2 as mostly all reviews saying it is more forgiving. Just pondering if I should go for blade... will update again after the demo, thanks!

I agree with the rest. The AP2's is the better pick while still being able to get extra distance along with its forgiveness.
