2017 Callaway Apex Pro 16 Iron Review

2017 Callaway Apex Pro Iron

Street Price:  $1,200

Unique Features:  The Pro 16 head is made from 1025 mild carbon steel that is ‘Quadruple Net Forged’ through four processes to refine the club towards its final shape. Behind the ‘Forged’ panel on the back of the head hides a pocket that in the 3 to 5 irons is filled with tungsten weights to lower the Centre of Gravity (CG) and increase the launch angle. As you move into the 6 to 8 irons the holes are filled with steel for a mid CG and in the 9-iron and below they are empty to remove weight from the sole and raise the CG.

Tester Comments:  A lot of  forgiveness on poorer strikes … Beautiful look, feel and easy enough to hit … Carry distance on 7 iron was averaging about 10 yards longer than current forged iron, I was stunned.
