Apex UW 19° vs 21°

Recommended Posts

Hey Wrx, thought I’d see what the community has on Apex UW and if anyone has hit the 19° against the 21°. I currently play a G425 3 hybrid at 19° but it’s too low spin. I could simply increase the loft with the sleeve, but it sits closed to my eye. Has anyone found the UW 21° to be a good fit? I’ve read about the 19° being too low spin. Driver swingspeed is 117-120, but am not a high spin player. Thanks guys!

Yes the 21 replaces a 19 hybrid.

 

I wouldnt go with a UW if you want high spin, though. It's a very weight-forward head design.

I have the 21* and I hit it 230 stock shot, it replaces my 4 iron as it comes in steeper and with more spin

I have a 19* and its my " 5 wood". My 22* is a Ping G425 Hybrid. To me, the UW feels like hitting a fairway wood while the Ping more iron like . I really like the Apex UW , a solid performer! I actually like the Apex better than the G425.

I had the 19* for a little while but I couldn’t seem to hit it any further than my Apex Pro 20*. I don’t have any hard data, but it’s possible the UW spun more for me than the hybrid. 🤷🏼‍♂️

At 21* you could always go with the Maltby HY-Way. 
 

its weight adjustable, you can have them sort through heads to get a 20-21-22* and it is .355 so you can use a wood shaft 

 

lie read a bunch of reviews, but haven’t hit the Callaway UW, Maltby HY-Way or the Cleveland offerings. 
 

its a cheap experiment, especially if you have a heavier wood shaft you like lying around ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I have both in my bag. Use them as my 3 and 4 hybrids. Love ‘em. I hit them dead a** straight. High ball flight and they don’t come in as hot as my Callaway XR hybrids did so I can hold greens quite a bit better. I don’t think I know enough about golf equipment to truly understand why, but these work very well with my swing.

If your a low spin player, stay away from the UW.  I’m a low spin player, driver swing speed in the low 120’s, had a 17* UW for a minute, could barely keep it in the air.  Spin hovered around 2000, saw one shot dip as low as 1400.  Would be an ideal tee club if I played links courses in the wind though.

Didnt get to hit the 19 but did have the 17 and 21. 17 was very low spin in the 2600 window. The 21 had the same shaft as the 17 but actually was a very playable 4500 spin in that spot

 

Overall I do think the UW is a low spin head but the 21 wasnt low spin for me. It had great ball speed and would give me ideal gapping before 4i

That’s why I’d loft up with this club. Yes it’s a weight forward head design and lower spinning (than a fairway) but it’s also probably higher spinning than a hybrid of same loft. It truly is “in between” a hybrid and a fairway wood. 
 

For OP, I have hit both the 19 and 21. I first hit 19 on the range (no monitor) I liked it but immediately thought “this isn’t what I’m looking for”. It was too flat and too close to my 4wood. Grabbed a 21 and it’s exactly what I was looking for. Which for me was a 3hybrid replacement after I tried a 7w first. 7w was too spinny and high for me. 3hy was fine but inconsistent and this UW sits right in between as my 225 club. 
 

I gap it in between a 4w (16.5 degrees) and a 4hy (23 degrees).
