    For anyone that ordered the Apex 19 Combo—did the Callaway site note that they were back ordered 5-7 days. If so, how long did it take to actually get the clubs?

    So you dudes in here that already got your smoked out Apex are you seeing any issues with the finish? Rumor is these got delayed for issues bending them and the finish coming off... ugh




    I'll have my first round of sim golf on them tonight.



    It wouldn't surprise me too much from some of the other photos I've seen floating around, but I'm still hopeful.



    They're gorgeous clubs. I don't mind if the finish wears, but if it's incredibly touchy I'll be a bit disappointed.

    I expect some normal wear too. Hopefully you don’t see anything egregious like chunks of paint coming off or something really bad.

    A little late to the party, but I finally got to hit the Apex Pro's yesterday (inside, but still) and I came away super impressed. I've hit a bunch of comparable irons the last couple months (AP2, Z785, 919F and Tour, i210, King Forged CB, all in the same shaft), as I'm in the market for new irons, and for me these were the best by a good bit. The feel wasn't exactly soft forged, but it was very solid feeling and I was actually a big fan of it. Numbers across the board were great, look good at address, pretty forgiving on mishits - I just basically fell in love with the whole package. So I'll probably be ordering a set to spec soon, and can't wait to get these bad boys out on the course.

    Played a couple rounds with my standard Apex 19 5-GW. So far the only thing I’m not thrilled with is having deal with the Gap Wedge. I’ve always gone PW 45* or 46* to my 52*. Now with PW at 44, GW at 48 then my 52 it just seems to me, someone who likes simplicity, that is just to many options.



    May trade in the 8-GW and just get the pros in 8-PW.



    Any thoughts?

    I’ve carried 4 wedges for years and can’t imagine my bag any other way. 46,50,55,61. Gapping is all about preference. You can adjust lies. Certainly don’t change sets because of gapping issues.



    But the way....I saw the smoke Apex last night at GG. Very nice. I love the bounce and the pre worn leading edge.

    One round on the sim and these are my favorite irons in a long time. Very sleek looking while maintaining a lot of forgiveness and fantastic feel with the X7 shafts. Haven't been this excited about a set in a long time.

    I bought the combo set. Cally did a good job altering the lofts to make the transition work and create smart gapping. I had mine bent 1* weak to get the Pro PW at 45*. The distance and accuracy are quite good with the Apex. The Pro short irons are workable with an excellent sound and feel. Mine are shafted with the Recoil Smacwrap 780 F4. It's a pricey set so be prepared for a bit of sticker shock; even so, this is an impressive set of irons that is worth a look if you are a fan of the Callaway Apex series.

    Good points. I one point 2 years ago I went 46 PW, 50, 54, 58 and my short game was brutal. Went to 52/58 and have been much better from 100 and in.

    Im starting to head that way. I find my short game much better when say im 120 out I take a choked up PW(full swing 135 club) and swing smooth rather trying to rip at a 50 degree. Looking into going 52/58 rather then 50/54/60

    Saw the black in person yesterday.....it's ok, blacks not my thing, especially reading numbers on club when their full of dirt.......wouldn't pay extra for it that's for sure.....clubs getting really expensive



    But they do look nice, headshape and all.....
  • claytongolferclaytongolfer Members Posts: 41
    I have a set of the Apex non pros coming with KBS tour shafts. What wedges are you guys going with? I am thinking a PM Grind 58 degree lob wedge but not sure I want the 54 degree in the PM grind with that high toe. I ordered the gap wedge with my set. Thanks.

    Not sure if right thread but TXG just did their Apex Pro review. I still love these but the really high speed guys may want to be aware that Matt was getting a couple "fliers" off the deck. His front to back dispersion was about 13 yards with a 6i which obviously is a little bit about strike... but he's around a 2-3 HC and his strikes weren't too bad.



    I don't have all his speed but I tend to carry the 6i around 185 -190 when I'm feeling good. I am now a little concerned about this... This is the #1 reason why I ditched my 790's.

    Have the same concern in the 4-7i due to the cup face. Anyone experience this themselves?

    Hes a very low spin guy. Once they moved the loft to 31 Degrees he was 211 209 214 215. Cant get much more consistent than that with a 6 iron



    I think strong lofted irons are a bad fit for low spin guys. High launch/high spin guys love the p790s

    They did have a good point though about the non scratch player - How many of us honestly pump our irons over the green? 95% of us come up short most of the time. Maybe a little extra heat on your shot wouldn't be the worst thing ever. However, for very good strikers who need minimal deviation from their expected carry, this wouldn't be ideal.



    However, I've seen a bunch of pro's putting these in the bag, and Xander won with them.

    The "flier" before they lofted up was also a swing of 106mph with the rest of the swings being 102-103. So he added 3-4mph to his swing, so his ball went 4-5mph faster, so it went farther. Not rocket science. They attributed it to club and looked at the ball data, but not once in the video did they comment that he just swung it faster.



    For the pros, I don't think there's any real flier tendency in them. Unless your definition of flier is "I swung faster and found center and it actually went far, much farther than I had planned since most of my hits are not centered." My 2 cents.

    I've been playing with them for a week (limited sample size) but have yet to hit anything remotely close to a flier. I think low spin guys will get a few "fliers" regardless with strong lofted players distance irons regardless. Fortunately I am not a low spin guy.

    I got my Combo set last week and haven't had a chance to play them yet due to the weather but I did take them to the range twice. The Apex irons are really loud with range rocks but I'm certain it'll be different with a premium ball. The shape of these clubs is what is most impressive to me. I've always liked the Callaway aesthetic, especially in the scoring clubs and they really got these right in every way. The flight is great (Recoil SmacWrap) and the spin numbers seem to be good. If it ever stops raining, I'll have more to say on the subject but, right now, I feel like I've gained back twenty five years.

    Just hit them today. Absolutely loved them. The Apex 19 compared to the CF 16 looked a touch smaller on the top line. The Apex Pro 19 is going in the bag. Felt great, certainly had a hot-ish sound. I was hitting them with practice (read **** soft) balls in the hitting bay, but was getting 5 mph more than my AP2. Now, my AP2 currently are a 1/4 in short, but I was having better launch and spin numbers, equal/better land angle, and about 12 yards more carry.



    Going to get them for sure, and the AP2s are going on the BST. Just need to figure out which site to buy from...




    Good move.....go for the Pros and don't get lured in by the Combo set. The Pros have got all the forgiveness you could ask for.

    Just hit them today. Absolutely loved them. The Apex 19 compared to the CF 16 looked a touch smaller on the top line. The Apex Pro 19 is going in the bag. Felt great, certainly had a hot-ish sound. I was hitting them with practice (read **** soft) balls in the hitting bay, but was getting 5 mph more than my AP2. Now, my AP2 currently are a 1/4 in short, but I was having better launch and spin numbers, equal/better land angle, and about 12 yards more carry.



    Going to get them for sure, and the AP2s are going on the BST. Just need to figure out which site to buy from...




    Good move.....go for the Pros and don't get lured in by the Combo set. The Pros have got all the forgiveness you could ask for.




    It seems like you went combo though, are you regretting not getting 4-7 in the pros?

    I’ve had my mixed set for a few weeks now. I’m liking them better each time I hit them. The first time out with them I wasn’t sure, but like with any iron change, you have to get used to the differences form your previous set. Now that I’m getting them dialed in, I’ve decided to go ahead and make them my gamers. The swing weight feels a little heavier than my previous Ping i200 set, and I think that had led me to more consistent strikes toward the middle of the face. I wish I could give a lot more and better feedback, but the weather has either been too rainy or cold lately, I’m ready for some dry ground and green grass!

    A little late to the party, but I finally got to hit the Apex Pro's yesterday (inside, but still) and I came away super impressed. I've hit a bunch of comparable irons the last couple months (AP2, Z785, 919F and Tour, i210, King Forged CB, all in the same shaft), as I'm in the market for new irons, and for me these were the best by a good bit. The feel wasn't exactly soft forged, but it was very solid feeling and I was actually a big fan of it. Numbers across the board were great, look good at address, pretty forgiving on mishits - I just basically fell in love with the whole package. So I'll probably be ordering a set to spec soon, and can't wait to get these bad boys out on the course.




    Well my set of Apex Pro’s were delivered yesterday, less than a week from when I ordered from Discount Dan’s, great delivery time and for a slightly custom set. Too bad there’s still a couple feet of snow on the ground and more on the way, it’ll be at least a month until I can hit the course with them. Excited to get these in play though! Coming from a 10 year old set of Cobra ProCB’s, these will probably be a world of a difference.

    I am so tempted to go full Apex Pro. I hit the Pros and was so impressed, not so much in Apex 19 CF.



    I need to go play so I can stop looking at this forum and buy a set of them.
  • Crooksc17Crooksc17 Advanced Members Posts: 709 ✭✭
    I went with an all Pro set over the combo set. I figure it is already sort of a combo set since the 7 iron and up have the cup face, making them a little more forgiving. The only disappointment is not being able to get the matte finish on the full pro set. The Pros look great but would be much better with a matte or raw finish

    Just did my first ever full bag fitting, chose True Spec in my area. Went in wanting to hit everything, and no allegiance to any brand's flag. Definitely wanted to get away from my mega players clubs that I just can't get along with given the amount that I play. I probably was never good enough for them haha but I was at least able to move around the course well enough when I was playing and hitting balls multiple times a week.



    I honestly hadn't even looked into the Pro's, which happened to be the very first club we tested. The results were fantastic, so the fitter and I kind of just figured let's keep hitting different heads because they will all most likely produce better results than my current irons. I was specifically interested in the Mizuno Hot Metal Pro's coming into the fitting, and made a point to test those out. While I loved the look, and they certainly preformed well, they just didn't seem to top the Apex Pros.



    After hitting 7-8 different heads, we were both pretty sure the Apex Pros were going to be the winner. At that point we focussed on dialing in launch and spin with the correct shaft. In the end I wound up with the KBS $ Taper 130, a shaft I've never hit before.



    Here are the results. Ignore the "Side" column as I was using my own target references out on the range rather than the one the Trackman was aligned at. It had me kind of crooked which messes with me for some reason haha so I straightened up (turned left), and we could see the ball flight in relation to my alignment anyways, so it wasn't a big deal. In addition, I was playing my irons -1/2" length, and we decided that +1/2" would be a better fit, thus the slight uptick in swing speed as I was choking down on a +1" shaft at the time of the fitting.

    I got fit for the Apex Pro's last month and absolutely loved them. I am coming out of G20's and wanted to move to a players iron that still offered a little bit of forgiveness. I loved the way they looked at address and I'm a fan of the smaller club head, as I find it still inspires confidence. I'm actually travelling in South America right now for work, but my wife was kind enough to let me know they showed up at the house this week and sent me a picture. I can't wait to get back and get them out on the course!

    Black metal will always wear. It doesn't matter what the marketing lingo is used to promote their particular type of finish. If you are worried about the finish go with the chrome. If you hate chrome get a different set of irons such as the Wilson V6 Raw.

    I get they will wear. But marks from bending to adjust lie angles at the factory and face impact marks after 1-2 balls seems excessive and that is what some are claiming. I have the black PM grind wedge and have no concerns how it looks after 2 years.

    I had multiple of my irons bent and no marks to be seen.



    I’ve also hit them a fair amount on my home sim and definitely no wear after a ball or 2, actually none thus far at all. Now I realize that isn’t outside, but I think the claims of excessive wear have been a little overstated.
