Apex Forged Irons
Ultimate in Forged Performance
Conventional wisdom has dictated that you can’t have extreme, radical performance in a forged iron. With Apex, the conventional wisdom couldn’t be more wrong. Now the paradigm has changed; Apex gives you distance and performance in a stunning forged iron design built to fit a wide range of players and handicaps.
The Apex is a technology driven iron at heart. The face material is the Carpenter 455 material Callaway uses in their X Hot Fairway Woods. So it gives Apex the ability to make the ball go fast. Very, very fast. Each iron goes through a 40-minute milling process to position weight low and deep in the iron head, as well as around the perimeter. Rubber material was also added in the cavity, along with the Apex’s badging to further reduce vibrations, which helps replicate the one-piece forged iron feel that many golfers prefer.
The premium forged body gives Apex a look and feel that was once reserved only for players irons. But what makes Apex a first in golf and why you want to put it in play is that it combines forging with technology and performance to arrive at a forged iron that is very long and also has the performance characteristics of a forged iron, in terms of the soft, responsive feel and the look that you get from a forging.

- UST Recoil graphite shaft offering is a lightweight shaft with higher flex points, resulting in great feel and workability
Callaway Apex Forged Irons Expert Review
Written By: Bob Gomavitz
The Callaway Apex irons feature a forged carbon steel body, tungsten sole inserts, and high performance wide grooves. The head also features a Deep Undercut Cavity or Channel that runs from heel to toe to help the face flex deliver higher ball speeds. It is also a two piece construction, which is different than traditional, one piece forged irons.
Who's It For?
These irons are a great choice for scratch golfers, to mid-handicappers and improving golfers who want to increase their shot making abilities, receive increased feel from shot to shot, and want to control distances better than they would be able to with the even more forgiving game improvement heads.
While many OEM’s CB players irons take on the look of their players heads, the Apex looks different to my eye. I noticed a greater offset, a very curved sole from narrow at the toe and heel to wider in the mid section. To me, this makes the head look more like a players game improvement iron when looking down at it. The toe area is very rounded and the satin head also has a grinded leading edge. Callaway calls the Apex their forged distance irons, and I definitely saw some nice distance with these heads, even with the lower launching KBS Tour V series shaft. Personally, I enjoyed the Apex Pro version better than this one.
