VERDICT Why would you design a hybrid to perform like an iron? With the Apex, Callaway presents the case that adding a little better performance (distance and height) is all some players want from a hybrid. With a thin, highstrength steel face that wraps around the crown and sole, you’ll see more distance, and the slightly higher centre of gravity produces the climbing ball flight that should hold more greens.
COMMENTS (L) Total player’s hybrid. Versatile club. I could curve it, hit it high and low. It doesn’t look forgiving, but it is. (M) Its slender size might scare some golfers – until they hit it.
(H) I really like the dense feeling at impact.
