We tested: 2-E in Apex steel shaft
Company line: "Forged from 1020 carbon steel for terrific, soft feel. The mid-cavity back lowers the center of gravity for optimal launch trajectories. Progressive offset enhances playability."
Our Test Panel says: Unsurpassed feel; 3-iron through wedge feel like the same club; transmit data like a high-speed connection; a classy, not complicated, look; predictable mid-trajectory with a boring, not ballooning, flight; a true shotshaping players' weapon; no training wheels; accuracy suffers on mis-hits; okay length.
Exceptionally responsive. So soft and communicative, these clubs almost talk to you. Zach Fasman
