Whether you’re new to the golfing scene or you consider yourself a seasoned veteran of the sport, you have to admit that it is one of the best ways to relax (especially after a stressful week). There’s just nothing nicer than escaping the day-to-day chaos and playing a round of golf with your friends or on your own. This explains why so many golfers spend so much time on the golfing green during each visit.

Another thing you have to admit when it comes to golfing is the necessity to look good and have the right equipment with you. Everyone you see on the golf course has a certain look, they all look well suited for the sport with their hats, polo shirts, and of course their golfing accessories (like their clubs and balls). All of these things work together to create the look of someone who not only knows what they’re doing on the golf course but some who isn’t out of place. That’s one of the reasons you rarely see someone using hand-me-down golf clubs and bags, which are better suited at being relics rather than appropriate golfing gear for the modern golf course. That’s because they were made with hardly any technical advancements to help solve or assist you in overcoming issues with ball speed, swing speed, or distance.

If you compare the look and build of modern golf clubs with older ones, you’ll notice a big difference in design. Some modern drivers have adjustable weights within the clubface to create better CG and MOI, thus producing grander speeds and distances. And some irons feature more prominent hollows for similar reasons. These tweaks to the design make these products much more adapted when it comes to tackling and playing on a modern golf course, which is one of the reasons why these hand-me-downs simply won’t do, especially if you want to be taken seriously.

At each and every golf manufacturer, there are teams of creative minds who work hard creating new products with updated technology and innovative designs to help tackle certain issues. By doing this they are able to bring you the very latest in golfing tech and incredible designs, which (when combined) help enhance your skills on the golf course.

It is always advisable that you update your golf equipment on a regular basis (or whenever you can fund it), this way you’re staying up-to-date with the latest technology and such for even better performance. If you’re lucky enough, however, you may be able to find a golf club that serves as a real investment piece in terms of design, tech, and longevity.

But of course, there is a wide range of golf companies to choose from and deciding who to turn to can often feel like an impossible choice. That’s why, in times like this, you need a brand you can truly rely on to provide you with the very latest in innovation! Since establishing themselves in the early 1980s, Callaway has worked hard to become one of the world’s leading golf manufacturers, creating a whole host of products for you to use and benefit from. Their latest product is certainly no exception.

The 2019 Apex Pro Irons by Callaway have really established themselves as a set of irons you can truly depend upon while on the golf course. Their incredible build quality, weightlessness, and their optimal shot-making abilities are just the cherries on top of a whole bunch of other amazing features. There’s little wonder why so many customers and reviewers are so excited about these game-changing golf clubs! With improved Center of Gravity, enhanced MOI and more influential swing speeds, these clubs are certainly set to rock your world!

Style & Feel

One of the best things you'll notice about the Apex Pro Iron Set is just how incredible they look! They have a smooth and subtle satin coating, which is perfectly paired with just a small amount of offset on the top line (which is rather slim). The toe is rounded for a subtle touch of luxury and class that all golfers go crazy for. You will have to stop yourself from staring at them all day because you're going to want to admire every inch of these irons.

For some golfers, the design of the cavity maybe not ideal, with some reviewers referring to it as busy. But if we're being completely honest, who really spends a lot of time inspecting this area of the club? I know we don't! The sticker inserts aren't ideal, however, it's not a huge problem as it is simply apart of brand awareness.

The major problem with the Apex Pro Irons is that after a month or so, they do look rather neglected, often looking like they've taken a battering. The premium finish soon appeared to simply vanish, leaving behind ancient and neglected looking ions. Of course, some people believe that wear and tear play into the character and elegance of your irons, however, this does depend on the person. If you are rather image-conscious then this simply won't do and could be a major turn off for you. However, if you can get over this issue, then the technology and performance will certainly win you over.

How the clubs feel upon impact with the golf ball is certainly everything you'd expect from forged iron. It's soft, yet offers a firm feeling. It's also hot, without being overly metallic. It is really like running a hot knife through a block of butter. It's hard to imagine that this minimal feeling feels so good in your hands.
