Callaway Apex 21 Lead time?

Recommended Posts

Can anybody give me promising news on the lead time? Just ordered yesterday based on the 2-3 week lead time on their website, however checked order status today for fun and it shows delivery between JULY 19-23. 
I get delays with covid and everything, and I’m not upset by any means, just can’t wait that long so trying to determine if I should cancel or not. 
 

Been on phone with callaway for 30 min and haven’t gotten through to a rep yet so figured I’d throw it on here to see anyone else’s experiences.

Jsellers23, interesting to see what Callaway stated to you.

 

Last week I ordered a set of Apex 21 and was quoted several weeks.  During the fitting I inquired into the Modus 120 stiff and they stated 8 week minimum delay so I ruled this shaft out try during my fitting for I did not want to wait that long.

The lead times on the heads are not bad at all. Based on what you were quoted, I'd call to see which component was backordered. If it's shaft or grip, you know your choices.

Ordered (March 5) Friday shipped the following Friday.  Arrived on Monday.  Aerotech FC115cw stiff +1 1/4 over.  Very happy with the experience heads and shafts.

I finally got on the phone with them and the rep claimed they were scheduled to ship 4/17. Evidently there is some glitch in the online status because he guessed it was showing mid July before I gave him any info, so must not be the first time he heard that. 
he said it would be even quicker if it wasn’t for the custom length shafts.

Yeah, all about the components. When I called in an exchange order for an Apex Pro/X Forged CB combo on Tuesday the rep said nothing on my component list was backordered, so he said “we just have to build them.” He mentioned the MMT had been backordered but only until April 5, which is next week, so that was no big deal. I went with the Catalyst 100 6.0 shafts and Winn Dri-Tac grips — the comfort build! — and both were in stock so I expect they’ll ship within a week of the order.

Ordered mine at the end of Feb, and they've showed everything from now-ish to early June (and the date changes frequently).

 

I've been told it's the MMT's causing the hold up.

 

Seems odd that the "stock" shaft would be on backorder, but these are weird times. I can be at least semi-patient.

Yeah absolutely. Like I said, not angry or anything. Times are crazy right now. 
I just have a few events in early June so would like to have them for a few weeks before that.

Same.

 

I've tried convincing myself that I'm going to play most of my tournaments this season with my current clubs. (this probably won't be successful, but seems at least worth the effort)

The answer I got from Callaway directly is the re-supply of MMT shafts comes on April 6, so I bet you will see your clubs this month. Hoping for you.

Ordered regular apex 21 on sat.  It updated to being boxed up for shipping last night so should be shipping soon.  Modus 105 S shafts and tour velvet align grips.  If you dont see any updated timeframe I would call them and make sure shafts or grips are not on backorder as I have heard certain grips or shafts could hold up order.

Man, that is a bummer. I called in an order of Apex Pro long irons and X Forged CB short irons (all as individual irons, as that combo is not offered) with Project X Catalyst 100 6.0 and they arrived six days later. (And those shafts are winners, fyi, for anyone looking for low-torque graphites that are stable and yet also offer excellent feel.)

Good for you, at least I know someone is getting their clubs 😂

Just spoke to them on the phone and they are now saying the AW head is backordered till the end of May so I assume my order will be pushed out even farther. 
May end up just cancelling, as I wanted these irons for 2 events I have the first two weekends in June. 
Bummer, but what can ya do, crazy times 🤷🏻‍♂️

They can’t do a partial ship of some clubs as they wait to resolve the backordered parts?

I’m sure they could, but it would add a substantial gapping issue for me, which would make me buy an additional wedge if I wanted to use them in an event. So I wouldn’t use partial set anyway.

I'm a lefty, ordered on 4/23. 1/2 over, Golf Pride Z Grips, standard loft and lie, TT Elevate ETS 115 shafts. When I placed the order online, it said 5-7 days, but figured I'd be lucky to have them that early. Considering I'm a lefty, I was hoping that estimate was accurate. In the last month, my shipping week has changed at least 6 times and now it's saying the end of June. I've waited to speak to a rep for about 30 minutes and just hang up multiple times. I get times are crazy, I understand they're an in demand set of clubs, but my god, what an absolutely horrible experience so far. 

 

After exchanging emails, I was told the grips, shaft and 5 iron head were all backordered. I went to the Callaway site just now, put in the exact specs of my order and the lead time said 3-4 weeks. If that's not intentionally misleading customers, I don't know what is.

Ordered mine March 30, arrived May 28th.

I ordered them as individual irons.  PW head was backordered and said July 7.  It actually came today.  Golf Pride tour velvet was backordered so changed to these ugly purple Callaway ones they had in stock.  Lol

whatever just send me the clubs I’ll deal with the grips later

I ordered a custom set on the 18th May through my club pro and delivery time is now expected to be Mid/Late August. This seems way too long. 


Is anyone else having similar issues? 
My specs were ETS 120 and + 1/2 inch shaft length. 

 

12 weeks is about standard for any OEM right now. Anything longer means the part provider is backordered as well.
