Callaway Apex Pro 2019 - my thoughts on these...
hey fellas, just played my 2nd round this morning with my new 19 Pros, i admit its going to take some getting used to these clubs, going to be baby steps getting used to them.
initial thoughts - noticed straight away the leading edge of 19 is rather flat where as 16 has a little more roundness to it, but great overall look, blade length on 19 shorter but thicker topline than 16.
i got 4 & 5 with 130g Dynamic Gold S300 - these are magic, very long clubs, couldnt be happier with these 2 (love long irons, will be a sad day when i have to give these up for those horrid OEM hook machines)
i then went 7 through AW with Dynamic Gold 105 S300 - the 7 iron is very long, wow long, i see what alot of guys mean when they say players "distance" iron, great club also.
the clubs that i was struggling to hit nicely were the 9 & PW on full shots, and my 9 is my go to club... have me a little puzzled as to why i wasnt flushing these TBH.
once i finished my round, went home, cleaned clubs, had shower (i stunk really bad, was hot day here) went to supermarket to by food for coming week, sh*tposted a bit on a couple of forums i frequent, then back to the scene of the crime...
... this time with my practice bag which sports 16 Pros with the same shaft setup and roughly the same bag configuration... these i didnt have a problem with and was hitting really well and super easy, 7 iron didnt get that massive distance like the 19 did (dont know if a bad thing or not) i should of had something to eat after first round because by hole 11 - 12 i was shattered & swinging DG shafts round all day had taken its toll.
home for a beer & clean clubs (may have to have another shower because ... well you know)
out come of the day - 19s will need more than 2 goes to make a real decision, but when i hit the club well i was impressed with the result i got, 16s are still the ducks nuts for me, just seem to interact with the fairways (and rough) a bit better IMO, looking forward to getting out with them again.
oh and PS i think i found a ball that i will keep using - TM TP5 gave it a good go today, will def be purchasing a couple of boxes in the future, love em'.
