WITB Notes from Callaway

On his Apex Pro 19 Irons

“This week, Schauffele has the new Apex Pro 19 Irons in the bag at Kapalua. Schauffele is particularly fond of these irons – he played with the prototype version of the Apex Pro 19 Irons throughout the end of last season and used them in his WGC win during the fall series. Xander has told Callaway Tour Reps that the weighting through the turf feels great for him, regardless of the course conditions. He also likes the look of the thin topline and the leading edge on the iron, and he’s very comfortable with the distance consistency, the window of the ball flight, and how he can shape shots.”

    I agree with previous posters, unless he has a custom black BB, this looks to be the black AD-DI.

    Awesome. I like this kid and also like GW. Used to think GW was a prick but saw him help a Vet who had fallen over at a tourney. He was walking by and went over to help te Vet up. Really blew my mind about him. Hope they both have a great season and thanks for the insight guys/Wrx.

    That shaft is black, so it can’t be the BB.

    He used to game the BB (blue bullet) in his M3, but seems like the AD DI (black colored) was a better option for the Epic Flash SZ head.

    Looks like a DI in the driver pic. Is he still using bb? And also his new apex pro irons are the same as the retail ones? Chrome finish?

    No offense to this guy but I really wanted to see Woodlands WITB since he’s moved to Wilson.

      He has new Wilson yet to be released blades 3-pw, a Ping 400 LST driver, looked like a Cobra 3wd because it had rails on the bottom, unless the new Wilson has rails on it, aWilson driving iron 2 probably the F4 or F5 , can’t remember which, he had Vokey wedges and a Scotty putter. His deal was for only 9 clubs with Wilson. His deal is so fresh he probably hasn’t had time to fail in the woods. I don’t know shaft info but look at previous WITB, the shafts are probably the same as most pros don’t mess with that too much when switching companies. Hope that helps

    That sure looked like the sole of a Titleist 3 wood for his second shot on 18 in the fourth round

Forum Thread of the Day: “Gapping between 4-iron and 3-wood”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from b.mattay who is on the hunt for a club to fill his yardage between his 3-wood and 4-iron. B.mattay hasn’t found a hybrid or 3-iron that he’s entirely satisfied with yet, and our members have been dishing out their advice and suggestions to him in the forum thread.

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.

  • Z1ggy16: “I’d pick a high launching 5w and play it -.5 or .75”. F9 with the rails at 18* might fit the bill as a good all-rounder. Maybe not great off the tee for distance, but gets out of the rough with the rails, and should hold most greens.”
  • chiva: “Ping G410 hybrid adjusted open and flat?”
  • cardoustie: “Get the Cally apex 20 … very anti-left and iron like.”
  • uglande: “I love playing a 7 wood — money out of the rough and hitting into greens. I just ordered the Titleist TS2 version but last year played with the 917 F2, which sits square and has the adjustability to dial it in so that it gives you a good trajectory without ballooning. I also use a low-launch shaft for this reason. Lots of guys on tour play 7-woods (Charles Howell, Kevin Mitchell, Miguel Angel Jimenez) in part because some of the manufacturers make more players versions of these clubs, unlike the sky-ball launchers of the past. You obviously hit driver a long way. I would think you could hit into a lot of par 5s with 7 wood.

Cobra King MIM Wedges coming to retail April 12

Published

on

Cobra announced today its King MIM Wedges (which we got an in-hand look at during the PGA Show) are coming to retail April 12.

According to the company, the wedges are the first to feature a fully Metal-Injection-Molded (MIM) 304 stainless steel head.

“At COBRA Golf, we work to create new products that offer a tangible benefit to our consumers. Our innovative manufacturing processes work to reduce variables, helping golfers have a more consistent, improved game,” said Tom Olsavsky, Vice President of R&D for COBRA Golf. “The KING MIM Wedges are astonishingly soft and precise, to give golfers the best performance in their short games.”

Cobra touts the benefits of MIM manufacturing in reducing post-process polishing and reduction of hand grinding. Indeed, it’s a pre-programmed robot’s “hand” that polishes each wedge, which the company says reduces variance in head weight, thickness, and bounce.

304 stainless steel powder is heated to 2,444 degrees Fahrenheit (a higher temperature than traditional forging), producing “a more even grain structure than forged and cast wedges and the softest feel the industry’s ever seen,” according to Cobra.

  • Available lofts: 50, 52, 54, 56, 58 and 60 degrees lofts, all with Versatile Grind
  • A black Golf Pride Tour Velvet CONNECT, KBS Hi-Rev 2.0 (125g) shaft are standard
  • Available April 12, 2019
  • MAP price: $149 per wedge.
