A testament to Callaway’s prowess in forged multi-material construction, Callaway Apex 19 irons feel soft, sound great, are unbelievably long but forgiving, and are easy to shape.
It’s a balanced blend of sought-after characteristics that will have better players itching to switch.
SOFT SERVE- Callaway Apex Iron 19
The soft and sweet feel of Callaway Apex 19 irons is due in no small part to a particularly supple 1025 mild carbon steel, from which the clubheads are forged.
But Callaway have managed to add a bit of extra mayo to the Apex 19 update by inserting their famous microspheres into the irons.
Used in other irons such as the Callaway Rogue, a urethane insert, which is populated with over a million tiny air bubbles, is positioned behind the clubface in the Apex 19. The bubbles locked within the urethane compress and deform at impact to dampen vibrations and create a sound at impact that epitomises the premium nature of Callaway Apex 19 irons.
WHY THE LONG FACE CUP?
Apex 19 irons represent a merging of the best-of-the-best from Callaway’s distance and players’ iron categories.
It’s that fusion of technologies which makes Callaway’s Apex 19 irons so impressive: they are distance irons yet still have a substantial capacity to shape the ball.
The Apex 19’s long and mid irons are particularly effective at bombing the ball out there when it matters because the 3-8 irons employ Callaway’s famous 360 Face Cup expertise.
Face Cup technology, first used in Callaway’s fairway woods, consists of a narrow rim that runs around the perimeter of the clubface which allows the face to deform and spring back at impact. And the addition of the urethane microsphere insert meant the Apex 19 irons’ clubface could be made even thinner because of the bubbles’ capacity to deform and absorb some of the impact load.
The result is furiously-fast ball speeds that max out distance from the sweet spot while boosting the performance of mis-hits from all areas of the Apex 19 irons’ face.
THE SHORT ANSWER
The short irons in the Apex 19 set venture down a slightly different path by employing Callaway’s Spin Control VFT (variable face thickness) face.
Spin Control VFT achieves optimal distance but also boosts spin rates and improves control, which are essential elements to getting those approach shots settling close to the flag with the scoring clubs.
The extra feel and spin in Apex 19 short irons (8-AW) gives players an unlimited palette to be able to shape and flight approach shots like only a premium forged iron can.
