SPOTTED: New Callaway Forged irons… Apex or Legacy?



Photos of a new Callaway Forged iron popped up in our GolfWRX Forums, and our members are trying to figure out whether they’re going to be replacements for Apex Pro irons, or whether they’re an update on the Legacy series. They could also be X-Forged irons, but since Callaway recently came out with new X-Forged irons, that would be unlikely.

Here’s what GolfWRX Members are saying:

  • elwhippy: A new Legacy iron? Looks a bit Japanese shaped. 
  • mattTHEkatt: Like an X-Forged/Legacy Black mashup. They look powerful. 
  • DTown3011: …gotta be the next Apex!
  • J13: Pics look like a newer legacy black.
  • mgholda: Pics look like a newer legacy black.
  • TheMoneyShot: I thought Cally was going to phase out the Apex name after they released the MBs?
  • john443: A larger cavity in these then the X- Forged… competitor to the 750 and AP3 maybe? …or Legacy Black finally brought to retail…hallelujah. CF16 replacement???!
  • Equipto: These look very sharp, and like thumpers. I don’t care if they are a Legacy Black or Apex replacement, call them whatever… i’ll try them 
  • mrmikeac: Next gen Callaway Apex Legacy? Hmmmm…..
  • Brizam: The Legacy Black might be the best players cavity back ever made.  If they were to become available they’d move straight to the top of the list of clubs to buy for me. 
  • Jourdan M: This is the Apex Pro 

Here are photos of the new Callaway irons we spotted

    I have 5 sets of irons from top manufacturers. The best clubs are my legacy black. If these are the next Legacy’s then I’ll be taking two sets!

    To quote PT Barnum, there is a sucker born every minute, and the Marketing of a new club every few weeks proves it, so buy them up fellas, my stock will get better. And don’t forget the new Balls and Woods which are sure to follow. lol

    one thing for sure…they are a full club longer, higher , straighter and easier to hit than the clubs you just bought 5 months ago…I would sell those old ones now before they become worthless.

    These are ‘fake-forged’ irons. They’re cast steel and then ‘coin’ or stamped forged which only affects the surface metallurgy. Not ‘hot’ forged, only ‘cold’ forged. Gullible gearheadbaters will believe anything.

    OoOoOoooh!!! Look at the wicked cavity design. I bet balls fears getting hit with this awesome weapon. What will your golffing buddies say if you have this arsenal in your WITB … 😮

    Great looking club at address. The high frequency grooves look is awful. Glad to see it gone.

      yup the ‘look’ is important since you can’t play worth a snot.

    I play the Legacy Black as well. Great look and hope they bring it out here. Everyone who looks at the Legacy Black just love the top down look and the ‘help’ from the wider sole.

    If Stenson was testing, they’re Legacy. If it was another pro, they’re Apex Pros.

    Looks like the Pro with a bit more weight directly behind the center of the clubface.

    Looks a little i200 with less offset from the top

    Looks like a next gen Legacy to me… I play and love the Legacy Blacks. Very interested in getting my hands on whatever the hell this new club is!
