The big change to the new Apex irons is the addition of the same face cup technology used in Callaway’s super-long fairway woods, which provides more face flex, ball speed, and distance on both center and off-center hits. To provide the best possible combination of scoring ability and distance through the set the 3-7 irons are built with the face cup while the 8-PW are not, increasing feel and distance control on approach shots. Another key feature is a progressive design with varying sole widths (wider in the long irons), offset (more in the long irons), and CG height (higher in the short irons) to provide a solid balance of trajectory, distance, and control. The multi-piece Apex irons are forged from carbon steel and contain milled clubfaces for enhanced feel and consistency.

Aimed at more accomplished players, the new Apex Pro irons feature the traditional look and feel typically associated with forged blades. Accordingly the irons are made from carbon steel using Callaway’s quadruple net forging technique that creates more precision and consistency from club to club. A multi material design places tungsten inserts in the 3-5 irons for a lower CG and higher launch angles while the 6-PW have less offset and no tungsten weights, producing a lower and more controllable ballflight. Project X steel shafts come standard but a variety of steel options are available at no additional charge.

Available in 2H-5H the new Apex Hybrid is built with a relatively long blade length and neutral CG for players who desire enhanced workability and control. A forged face cup improves rebound and ballspeeds at impact for longer distance. A Mitsubishi Kuro Kage Black graphite shaft comes standard in a variety of flexes.
