    I noticed there's a slight de-lofting in the new Apex Pros from the 2014 Apex Pros, what was behind that decision made to raise the lofts slightly? Thanks y'all!

    Q&A is over and I am not with Callaway, but I believe that by putting more tungsten weights in the sole, they were able to increase launch angle a bit, so then they could subsequently make the lofts slightly stronger to make peak height/flight ideal and thus provide a small bump in distance.

    If you actually look at the specs, what BeanieAZ is pointing out is that the Apex Pro 16's are in fact slightly weaker in loft than their predecessors, not stronger.

    Ah, delofting = less loft so that is what I thought he meant.

    WOW! Just checked in after playing golf this morning and what a surprise. Thanks Callaway and thanks GolfWRX. This is so perfect. I'm currently playing a 15 year old set of... Apex Irons...the Hogan ones made by Spalding. I definitely needed an upgrade and this is exactly what I want. And I just had a birthday so this is a great birthday present. Thanks much to everyone. This is great!

    I misspoke (mistyped?), I meant that they made the lofts weaker. I correctly stated it in the next sentence. (Now to go back and make sure I actually DID state it correctly...) lol
