Hitting the Golf Digest’s top Game-Improvement irons category for 2014 is the Callaway Apex. The highlight of the Apex?  incorporating Tungsten plugs in the sole of the long irons that produces a low center of gravity (CG), something a vast majority of recreational golfers need in their irons.

STREET PRICE: $1,100 (set of eight, steel)

LOFTS: 6-iron: 27 degrees, PW: 45 degrees

TECH TALK: The head is a two-piece forged construction that features a Carpenter 455 face plate, an undercut cavity and a 1020 carbon-steel body that produces a large unsupported face area for enhanced ball speed. 


L: “For a mid-width sole, these cut through the turf very effectively.” 
M: “Not a one-trick iron: You can manufacture a lot of shots with these.”

HOT: When you dare to put the Apex name on an iron, you better bring your A-game. Callaway does this with touches like tungsten plugs in the sole of the long irons that produce a low center of gravity (CG) and a lightweight steel shaft. This is an iron with plenty of game-improvement for those who need it.

NOT: A 5-degree gap in the short irons is too much.
