Chances are excellent that Callaway’s new Apex MB irons are not for you. But that’s okay, because while almost everyone will appreciate these muscleback blades’ looks, they were not designed for the masses. 

The Apex MB irons are for golfers who stare at the flag and consider two or three different approach options, who can feel the differences in the ways irons work through the turf and want no filters to mask the sensations created at impact.

Forged from 1025 mild-carbon steel for a soft feel, these irons have a razor-thin topline, virtually no offset and a thin sole. There is a small amount of pre-wear on the leading edge to help the clubs slip in and out of the turf more easily, but that is the only concession made to forgiveness. The Apex MB has the smallest blade length of any Callaway iron.

The circular weight in the back of the head is not designed to be removed or adjusted by players. It allows fitters to customize the swing weight – the standard weight is 8 grams – without shifting the center of gravity. A 4-gram or a 12-gram weight can be subbed into that location depending on the player’s needs.

The Callaway Apex MB is going to be sold through custom order only, so there are no set stock shafts or grips. A wide range of steel and graphite shafts are available.
