There is a lot that can be said for having good looking irons in the bag and the better the player the more important the look at address becomes. The new Apex MBs from Callaway Golf certainly past the looks test.
Weighting in irons is a critical performance factor which in large part translates into the location of the head’s center of gravity and a big reason why the average golfer does better with a cavity back model. Apex MBs have a weight in the rear of the head that Callaway says solves the problem in these blades allowing them “to precisely dial in swing weights without sacrificing CG location.”
Look for their staff players on Tour to be playing these soon.
