Japan Release, I am sure NA/Rest of World will follow;   APEX MB; S25C; they are listed as limited edition model for Japanese market.   X Forged CB; S25C.   X Forged UT;

By the way, I disagree that these are a step back in the looks department.  I think they look great.  

You hit the nail on the head; while they do look better in hand than in pictures on the shelf and in the bag the CBs are never going to win a beauty contest against things like 620 CB, P7MC, ZX7, or J

Was reading some reviews on the TM website (P770's) and all the negative reviews were coming from people who ordered then long and were complaining that the swing weight was jacked up and TM basically responded "Sorry, cant fix that".  NOw while IMHO the P770's look far better, will be interesting to see how much the customization moves people to them

I can't wait to see them in hand side by side.  I am playing some Apex MB/Apex Pro Dot combos right now and love having the extra playability in the longer irons.  But, I have it all figured out.  I may just roll with a full set of CB's this time around.  Or MB's.  Or, a combo set again.  Haha.

You should do MB long irons CB short irons and really mess with someone heads as the walk up to number one thinking about a money game..

Haha, I will just tell them that I don't find the game challenging enough from 200 yards and out.

Pro Golfer: I like these clubs they look great at address and frame the ball so nice.

 

 

WRX’R: I like these clubs they look great at address and frame the ball so nice....wait is that what he back looks like? Sorry bro ain’t happening! If they don’t look good in the bag for others to gawk and drool over they don’t make the cut! 
 

Full disclose probably still playing some 2014 ap2’s with iron head covers!!

I'll be interested to read more about these. I've seen them with X-Forged on the back and also with Apex on the back. The X-Forged seem to be a smaller head. Does anyone know if they are combining the Apex and X-Forged line?

 

Me too... and I'm hoping Callaway is considering releasing all of their players stuff together from the MB, solid CB, multi material CB down to the players distance (Apex).  For me the idea of a "set" of irons has changed as I'll likely never get another full set of the same head.  I like to combo.  And honestly I really want to be able to really combo- maybe as many as 3 heads in a 6 or 7 club iron set.  Right now I have the '18 MBs with the '19 Apex Pros and I like that setup but if they'd release it all at the same time in a clean look I might end up with something like..

9i & PW - MB

8i & 7i - CB

6i & 5i - some combo of multi material CB and regular Apex.

 

Just depends on where (if at all) I start losing gaps and distance drops on my low toe miss.
