All this talk about Apex Hybrids .... Yup .... I did it .... Enjoy, my friends!

I also have 2-5 of the 16, And 4 & 5 in the 19’s

I'm interested in this topic as well. Just got the '19 version of Cally Preowned. Tested it for the first time today. I like it no doubt. But the shape is just.....meh. I like the smaller profile of the '16 but never had a chance to test it.

19 head is larger and little more "tink" sounding which is fine to me...sounds hot

it definitely goes higher in launch for me compared to the older 16

the 16 is classic head shape (like someone said, think: modern Adams Idea Pro)

the 16 should launch lower with lower spin? but found both to be pretty anti-left

love the 19 and will probably stick with one after moving to Mav Pro (which looks like a small fairway wood)

Have 2 Apex 16 models at 20 degrees. Smaller profile than the 19. Sits more neutral to my eye, and definitely found it to be more anti left. The 19 apex seems more like the rogue/epic to me.

The only negative with the 19 is the wider sole doesn’t rip thru the rough as well

19 head is much larger as the picture shows. 19 Turf interaction is not good on 20 degree, on 18 degree it’s a little better. Different feel with the jailbreak 19 head, larger variation in spin numbers with jailbreak. That 16 apex hybrid was so good, wish they did a release of that head again.

I played both, 19 is bigger, more forgiving, easier to hit and launch higher.

If you are a good ball striker with hybrid and like a more iron look, the original is better.

'16 Apex Hybrid has to be one of the best hybrids of all time. Hybrids are like 3 woods, hard to find one that is a perfect fit. These are money. Fingers crossed for the next Titleist release because adjustable would be nice if the shape was right. At the same time, I should really get a backup......

I've hit both and have the 2019 b/c the 2016 is hard to find in lefty. To me they are both great off the tee, great in the fairway but in feel the 2016 feels better. Not sure if it's the larger head or the jailbreak but the 2016 definitely wins the feel category. Besides feel, they are a wash to me. Had to go back and add, they matte finish on the 2016 is better than the gloss as well.

I've got a 2,3,4 in the 16' model and a 3 in the 19 model. Just picked up a 16* 1 hybrid in the original 16' model so considering getting rid of the 19' head and going all 16' models.

Biggest difference for me is the 19 model has more weight out in the high toe area, and the face is shaped slightly differently. I would say 19 is more forgiving but 16 definitely looks better.

3 and 4 in the 2016 here. Coming from someone who typically gets an itch to replace things- the 2016 Apex hybrids are going nowhere.

Any difference in perceived offset between the '16 and '19 heads? Also, based upon experience, what hybrid would follow a 4-iron distance wise? By loft it would be 20 degree but I'm not sure if these heads tend to be long that maybe 23 degree would match distance wise (even if lofts overlap)?
