What we say...

Callaway’s Apex MB Irons is a true muscle-back iron that has been created with input from Tour players 

Quickly becoming Callaway’s most popular iron on Tour (including being the #1 Iron model at the recent Italian Open**), the new Apex MB is a true muscle-back blade with classic, compact shaping and style, a traditional, slightly thinner top line, and a beautiful bright chrome finish.

The world’s best players have been heavily involved in the development of Apex MB, and they already feature in many Callaway Staff Professional bags, including Kiradech Aphibarnrat, Nicolas Colsaerts, Haydn Porteous, David Horsey, Thomas Detry and Alvaro Quiros.

A true muscleback, Callaway say the new Apex MB iron is a classic shape and style. There’s a slightly thinner topline, bright chrome finish and the smallest head shape in their iron line up.

36 Forged Irons Tested – Which Forged Iron Suits Me?

Every head of the Apex MB iron is forged from 1025 carbon steel, to deliver the soft feel and feedback tour players want. Callaway say centre of gravity positions are optimised for control, while precision face grooves deliver consistent spin even from the rough.

Luke WilliamsSenior Director Global StrategyIrons and Woods, commented: “Our Tour players have been at the heart of this pure, forged muscle-back iron.  During the R&D process we discussed every detail of what makes a great iron for them, the things they like now, and even the things they liked in the past.”

Callaway engineers have paid particular attention to CG positioning in the Apex MB to create a ball flight preferred by Tour players, whilst retaining more traditional lofts that align to the needs of the better golfer who is in-tune with distance gapping and consistency.

Each iron, forged from a single piece of 1025 Carbon Steel, is engineered for a remarkably soft feel, with the exact craftsmanship and precision that can only be achieved through Callaway’s premiuim Triple Net Forging process that allows for a more aggressive and precise ‘V’ shaped groove pattern, to deliver consistent control and shot-shaping, for pin-point accuracy.

“Creating a club with the shortest blade length, smallest head and thinnest sole of any irons in the current Callaway range, Apex MB are unashamedly designed for the type of player that looks for maximum workability and has very specific needs from how the club interacts with the turf,” added Luke.
