SPOTTED: New Callaway Forged irons… Apex or Legacy?

Published

on

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.

    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 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!

WRX Spotlight: Dead Zero Putting Disk Pro

Published

on

Product: Dead Zero Putting Disk Pro

Pitch: From Dead Zero: “The new Dead Zero Pro model putting disk offers golfers the ability to accurately determine green slope and a true fall line when practicing their “money” putts thanks to a bubble level embedded into the top of the disk. The bubble level accurately measures up to six-degrees of slope and gives a true reading of the fall line on any area of the putting surface. Like the Original model, the Dead Zero Pro helps all golfers build confidence to make more putts inside eight to ten feet.”

Our take on the Dead Zero Putting Disk Pro

The Dead Zero Pro Putting Disk Pro improves upon the original design by incorporating player and instructor feedback to include a level in the top of the disk. It’s a wise addition to a device that already offers players aid in an important practice approach: putting to a target smaller than the 4.25-inch cup. (The disk is roughly half the size)

We tried the Dead Zero Putting Disk Pro in the manner creator Eric Schmitt suggests in the video below.

We found it easier to focus on putting to a smaller target when using the device–the fact that the disk looks like a target certainly doesn’t hurt this! It’s also easier to practice breaking putts with the Dead Zero Putting Disk.

The level function helps quickly get an accurate feel for the putt, and you can set the disk down where the hole effectively “is,” from an aiming standpoint, on, say, an eight-footer that breaks six inches right to left.

It’s also a nice tool to have in your bag any time you need a target in practice, really, and are struggling to visualize a line or landing area. For example, when pitching from around the green.

Ultimately, this is a good practice and practice round tool that nicely functions as a smaller-than-a-golf-hole target for putting, a level, and an easy-to-see target.

A final word: There is something to the fact that golfers, particularly those who struggle with their putting, get hung up on aiming at a portion of the hole, “three balls out,” etc. If the cup has started to look more like foe than friend, shaking things up with a device like the Dead Zero Putting disk is recommended.

WRX Spotted: Lamkin Sink Fit Straight

Published

on

When it comes to grips we golfers can be a finicky bunch – especially when it comes to our putters. With so many different taper, weight, and material options on the market today, it’s easy to find something that’s just right. The same can be said for tour players too – when the flat stick isn’t working, try a new grip.

At the Zurich Classic in New Orleans this week, we came across a new putter grip from Lamkin: the Sink Fit Straight Polyurethane.

The Sink Fit line from Lamkin is not new but the Straight Polyurethane version is. Featuring a soft, tacky outer layer the shape is designed to help promote a better pendulum stroke with a slight pistol for the top hand. Unlike many other popular grip models that feature less taper the pistol shape might be the better option for those used to a pistol shape but want the benefits of a reduced taper grip.

The cool thing about the Sink Fit popping up at the Zurich, is that if you want to try it, the grip along with others from the Sink Fit line are already available online from Lamkin.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Anyone jumping on the Hogan bandwagon?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from tsecor, who pays homage to Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company, and asks what fellow members think of the club manufacturer. The consensus is very positive, with the value for the quality of irons provided cited as one of the best features of the company.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • bfp9: “I’ve been on the Hogan train since 2006 when I bought Apex Blades (with the dreaded Callaway Forging). Still use them today. Although they are getting long in the tooth. Best Irons for my swing, and my game. And they were $299 new at Golfsmith. Haven’t hit the new stuff, but I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to buy another set of Hogans.”
  • MattM97: “Lefty options are limited, only thing I might consider are the wedges but after shipping, import fee/duty, re-gripping to what I like they are as much or more than most wedges. But I do like what they are offering and are a much cheaper and appealing product for many golfers. So I’ll be a fan, but won’t be a user of Hogan products.”
  • dkelly1269: “I have a set of the FW15s and just picked up a set of the PTx irons. Both are very high quality and very playable at a great price. I’m all in.”
  • tsecor: “I played Hogan Apex PC’s back in the late ’80s when I was a child, and I loved them. My parents bought them for me as a gift for graduation. They were $399 I think……not sure why I ever sold them, but it seems as if the Hogan company is getting back to their roots and the tech they are including in their irons is impressive…to me anyway.”
