TCB vs X Forged.......TCB appears to be an 8 iron while the X Forged is a 7 iron.............

I purchased a set of x-forged but part of me really wants to pick up a set of tcb’s as well maybe even only 8-pw to combo with the x-forged. I do like the offset specs better on the tcb’s

For those of you curious about the X-forged vs TCB and possibility of a blended set... (X-forged on the left in side by side pics)

4 iron, 8 iron and pw.... snapped em real quick... can post more... got a set with steelfiber to try out and a set with my go to nippons... gonna be hard to kick the MBs out of the bag though 

And I’m pretty sure you’re wrong. TCB have a smaller profile with a narrower sole and less offset compared to X Forged.

Release these in double dot raw and I’m in for a set.  Would like to blend them in with my raw MB’s.

Have to say, Callaway is one of the few OEM’s that makes tour issue products available to the public.  Only select accounts get a small amount, but good on them.

Xander Schauffele WITB 2021

Tour Insider: Inside the bag of Xander Schauffele – GolfWRX

 

Jacob Davidson: The Apex TCB is similar to the Apex Pro “dot” heads he had success with, but in this case, he liked the feel a bit more, and the longer irons gave him a few more RPM’s of spin, which is always welcome.

The offsets aren’t that much different when you convert millimeters to inches.  They do look more forgiving though.

Interesting he mentioned the feel difference.  I'm really curious to know what that means.  Sole design difference?  Softer at impact?  Firmer?  I know it's all subjective and player dependent, but it has definitely piqued my interest.  These '19 double dots are extremely soft.

Can’t believe there are no reviews out on these since they are available in Europe. Tons of reviews on the rest of the apex line from guys over there 

The TCB is only available for PreOrder in the EU based upon the sites I have visited.

Delivery is mid to late February.

So....maybe in two to three weeks we will be seeing reviews.

For sure, I was referring to all the utube reviewers that have reviewed the rest of the apex line that is also pre-order. Like mentioned hopefully we will see something in the next couple of weeks 

 

I assume that the TCB being a much more limited release compared to the world-wide apex line that is the reason for not seeing TCB demos sent to interested parties.  Yeah, in a few weeks they will be showing up and we will have more in depth info.

Any updates on these?  It seems with the massive push on tour with these (or dot version of this) would bring an announcement of some kind stateside. 

The only item I noticed is that Xander is now going with a "RAW" version of the TCB.

Just seems like more Callaway staffers are bagging now from Leishman, Will Gordon, Burns, Stricker.  Maybe I'm mistaken but seemed to me they were popping up more.

Another Callaway staffer with the Apex TCB in the bag, but no word or explanation on their release???  Not sure how this makes sense from a marketing perspective.

 

As a consumer, I would be pissed (I know this happens with other brands, but...), if I just bought a new set of one of their 100 other newly released sets only to find out there are additional “new” sets possibly, yet to be released.  

 

When the perception is that everyone of their staffers seems to be playing an iron that is not available to the market, wouldn’t you want to market it and get the new toy into the hands of every kid out there?  Especially, with the “big” signing of Rahm?

 

Why would a consumer purchase the new Apex, Apex DCB, Apex Pro 21 or X Forged CB when they do not appear to be in play?

Even in Europe where this is a "normal" release I've yet to see an actual TCB head in hand and not just some product picture. Seems a bit odd.

This is what I don’t understand, a lot of the utube reviewers are over in Europe and not one of has got their hands on them. They have reviewed the rest of the apex line

It because the irons are only available via custom order. Most of the YT reviewers seem to stay pretty mainstream or widely available with their gear reviews.

Xander Schauffele has another iron in his bag to compliment his Apex Tour CB irons!

An Apex UT?
