New Callaway Golf Apex irons: distance with playability

By: September 30, 2015

Probably you have already heard about the new Callaway Golf Apex irons. So, I will only try to summarize the new features of the new Apex Irons and Hybrids. Last year Callaway Golf promised that the Apex 2015 irons will provide confidence to play any type of shot whenever they need to.

Let’s see what are the changes!

The new Callaway Golf Apex irons are slightly more expensive: $1,199.99 (Steel), $1,399.99 (Graphite). Loft Offerings: 3-iron through Sand Wedge. Stock shafts: UST Mamiya Recoil 760/780 (graphite), True Temper XP 95 (steel).Product at retail: 10/30/2015

Probably the main change is that the longer irons (3-7) utilize the Cup 360 to increase ball speeds and forgiveness across the face. In the shorter irons (8-AW), we can find a unique engineered face plate to enhance feel and distance control.

Unlike Apex Muscleback irons that are made from 1020 Carbon steel, the new Callaway Golf Apex irons come with quadruple net forging, precision milling, and 1025 mild carbon steel. Callaway Golf believes that the new Apex irons will be able to provide incredibly soft feel in a forged iron.

Last year there was no Apex Hybrid (see picture above). This time it comes with:

  • Pricing:$219.99 each
  • Product at retail: 12/4/2015
  • Stock Shaft: Mitsubishi Kuro Kage Black
  • Available Hybrid Lofts: 2-5

The design appeals to better players and Tour Pros. It has a longer, more-iron like blade length with the traditional CG of an iron. And it provides a neutral CG bias for the controlled ball flight with workability.

The Forged Face Cup is made from Carpenter 455 Steel, and designed for increased ball speed at every impact location. Center hits are going to be faster and off-center hits are going to be faster too. The Internal Standing Wave positions the weight so that we can move the CG where better players want it.
