What we say...
Callaway say the design of the Apex appeals to better players and tour pro’s. A longer blade length means they transition smoothly from a set of irons, while a neutral CG bias provides workability and control that better players desire. A forged cup face and internal standing wave bring hot face tech to the party.
Comparing the Apex to Callaway’s wide-bodied XR OS hybrid is like comparing apples to oranges, but it highlights perfectly how different both designs are and how important it is to make the right choice. Where wider body hybrids want to spin more and go up in the air the Apex is intent on powering shots forward. Shots launched off the face lower, and reached a peak height that was the joint lowest on test. With the same loft as many the Apex with its internal weighting and general design flights shots in a completely different way, but still managed to carry shots further than the average hybrid in our test.
We reckon the Apex’s penetrating flight is well suited to a strong performance off the tee. To get the max out of it from the fairway you best not have any difficulty flighting shots from the short grass.
