Callaway Golf released three new iron models this month, all of which are designed to appeal to better players.
One of those is the Apex MB. These are sleek-looking muscle-backs, with a thin topline, refined sole, compact blade length and a chrome finish. They also boast precision, 20V grooves, to promote both control and spin. And company technicians engineered a new weight in the center of the clubhead in an effort to optimize the center of gravity.
Next up are the X Forged CBs, which have a 1025 mild carbon steel body and which use internal and external tungsten weighting to enhance precision and control. A Tour Tuned Face Plate is included to provide faster ball speeds while also promoting consistent spin rates across the club, for better distance and distance control. These, too, feature players’ shaping, with blade lengths, toplines and offset crafted to provide better accuracy and control – and more workability – through the set.
Then, there are the X Forged UT irons, with an A.I.-designed Flash Face Cup included to elevate ball speeds. Callaway officials say the overall feel of these clubs, which are made to be effective off the tee and on approaches into greens, is heightened by the use of forged 1025 mild carbon steel, hollow body construction and proprietary urethane microspheres. Tungsten weighting is once again employed to optimize trajectory and launch. Available in lofts of 18, 21 and 24 degrees, these come with longer blade lengths and wider soles, for better forgiveness and control.
