We have them in our fit cart along with the Flash. All great sticks so far. Apex pros are great looking, soft feel with a bit of a 'click' sound. Remind me of AP2/3 and 760s. More of a players distance iron to me. ;)

Standard Apex certainly looks even more squat than the CF16 does.  Top line almost looks thicker but it could just be the photo.  I'll know soon enough once I get my pre-ordered 19's and hold them next to my CF16's.

Just hit them today. Absolutely loved them. The Apex 19 compared to the CF 16 looked a touch smaller on the top line. The Apex Pro 19 is going in the bag. Felt great, certainly had a hot-ish sound. I was hitting them with practice (read crap soft) balls in the hitting bay, but was getting 5 mph more than my AP2. Now, my AP2 currently are a 1/4 in short, but I was having better launch and spin numbers, equal/better land angle, and about 12 yards more carry.

Going to get them for sure, and the AP2s are going on the BST. Just need to figure out which site to buy from...

You know, the standard Apex has similarities in looks and sole that remind me of the Legacy Blacks, and thatís a very good thing.

I hit the new Apex Pro 7i against my current '16 Apex Pro 7i on GC2.  My '16 Apex Pro has a Recoil 95 F3 while the Apex Pro '19 had the Elevate 95 shaft (the stock shaft for the CF19 regular Apex).  The numbers were VERY similar but I averaged 300 more RPM of spin on the new ones, 1.5 degree higher launch and a yard more peak height.  Carry avg. was identical.  

I've got to figure out whether the spin and launch difference is more based on that shaft... I really like my Recoil's but I wouldn't say no to that extra bit of spin.

I'm considering replacing my 5-7i to blend with my Apex MBs.

Anybody have pictures of the GW and SW?

I tend to hit mostly full shots with my SW so looking for a little more forgiveness. Sometimes, the SW from the sets get too chunky for my liking so hopefully they didn't go overboard like others.

Having both Apex Pro and X Forged seems a bit redundant.

I  have had 3 sets of X-forged. I kept one set and the other two got traded in on a set of '19 Pros. Absolutely love the Pro's at address.....even more so than the X-forged.....and did not think that was possible. Believe it or not....I hit the new standard Apex too far and could not get used to those distances. All things being equal, the '19 Pro's are 8 yards longer than the X-forged for me, but look better and feel almost identical with slightly more forgiveness.

I may be a buyer.  I do love my Hogan PTx, but these are really nice.

I may even End up with the bigger version.  I’d weaken the lofts about 2 degrees and decrease the offset a bit, but the 7 from the fitting cart looked GREAT  at the shop. Slightly chunky top line but that doesn’t bother me.   Would Need to see and hit the rest of them to make a decision of course, but very impressed at first contact.

They're similar but distinct enough... I wish they'd stagger the release between X Forged and Apex MB more.  I also thought it was a mistake to release the Apex MB with the X-Forged.  The Apex MB need to release with the Apex and Apex Pro IMO for better combo'ing.  

With that being said.. I'd equate the X-Forged similar to the Titleist CB while I'd sort of equate the Apex Pro to the AP2.

I love my Apex CF16's so I don't plan on changing, but these new irons look great. I love Xander's raw finished Pros, I wish Callaway offered those even if at a higher price point. I can't imagine the 19's are going to be much different than the 16's, no matter how much Callaway markets them. I really wish Callaway took a page out of Titleist's book and releases new irons every 2 years and new woods every 2 years. Coming out with the X-Forged and Apex Pro's in back to back years seems redundant. All in all I am sure Callaway will sell a ton of these irons because the Apex can fit virtually every player from 20+ handicap to scratch.

Very different irons. Pros have cup face, stronger lofts, more powerful.

X forged are still a true ďplayersĒ club.

Ah yes. Sorry I had it in my head x forged were a bit weaker. But the apex pros will go further. Material and construction differences.

Here are some comparisons between CF16 and CF19. On the simulator at Dickís the Pro was about 7 yards shorter than the standard Apex. 30.5* loft on the standard and 33* on the Pro version. I was going to point out the changes I see in the top line and sole but wanted to see what you guys think before I say anything.

Finally saw the Apex Pro 19 today.  Nice looking club.  I hit it with a couple different shafts and I would say it was good, but not significantly better than my current set.  I was hitting indoors on a track man and I don’t love hitting off mats. I will likely give it another shot.

Not sure your current set but Iíd say that this is an iron so itís not going to be ďsignificantly betterĒ than another comparable set. Itís definitely not significantly better than the 2016 version of the Apex Pros. But itís a nice update on a already nice iron. If youíre in the market these are definitely worth looking at!

The Xander Protos appear what the Apex Pros are modeled off of.

I prefer his Protos.

I played my set for the very first time today. It was below 40 degrees which is freezing to us Texans. Nonetheless, I really enjoyed these irons. IMO the feel is much better than the CF16ís that I played off and on over the few years. Performance was about the same, but I did notice that they did stop hard on the green but that may be more the Elevate shafts Iím playing. Very forgiving and consistent across the face.  for the club head size and Iíve been playing The raw Apex MBís for the last year.

Iíll post more feedback as I play more rounds and in warmer weather.

Another solid offering of from a line of irons that have continuously been very good. Callaway should sell tons of these.

One more thing, for my fellow ďClub-o-holicsĒ out there. Over the last 3 years Iíve played probably over 20 different sets of irons over the last 2-3 years. However, today I realized my woods and wedges have been the same ones and they were both the strongest part of my game. Starting to believe that playing the same clubs over a long period of time will improve my game. Please donít suspend my GolfWRX account.....

I hit the pros for the first time yesterday and I was VERY impressed! To me these "feel" softer with better spin numbers than the 16 model. I will have a decision to make between these, 785s, mp18 sc, and p760. Its going to be an interesting fitting in two weeks and I cannot wait!

I sold my Z785ís for the P760ís and I donít regret it one bit. Love these irons. Put them up against the Apex Proís and it was the best head to head Iíve ever done, ever.

Ended up ordering the Apex Proís 5-PW KBS $ Taper 120 Blackís

Now I just have to learn how to share time between sets because Iím playing the best golf of my life with these 760ís.

Let me give you my insight:
The 760ís are way more forgiving than the 785ís.

The 785ís have a very pure forged feel to them but the biggest downfall with the Srixons were the spin numbers I got with them, forgiveness is good but not even close to the 760ís and Apex Proís

The Apex Proís are longer than my 760ís but forgiveness is literally neck and neck.

Backspin was highest in the 760ís at around 6800 in the 7 iron and over 10,000 in the PW. Srixons were the lowest around 5400 in the 7 iron and 8700 in the PW. The Apex Proís were in between both.

The Apex Proís look better in the mid irons but the 760ís look better in the shorter irons imo. Long irons look great in all 3 sets, offset isnít as bad in the 760ís as people put it out to be... the Srixons have the least amount of offset through the entire set.

Turf interaction is great in all 3 irons with the Apex Proís have the sharpest leading edge so this really comes Down to your a.o.a.

Consistency from front to back dispersion has to go to the 760ís

Consistency from left to right dispersion has to go to the Apex Proís but I think a lot of that is due to the shaft that you go with.

Feel goes to the Srixons. The 760ís have a very very soft muted feel even in the short irons which I prefer, but the Srixons have more of a pure forged feel to them.
The feel from the Apex Proís is a little harder and clickier than the other 2 imo but still very responsive and easy to tell where your strike is.

Top line is thinnest in the Apex Proís with the Srixons not far behind. The 760ís have the thickest top line out of any of them but still not too thick in any way.

Overall you canít go wrong with any of them.
