The new Apex 19 and Apex Pro 19 irons feature a forged 1025 carbon steel body combined for the first time with Callaway’s urethane microspheres. The carbon steel body aims to provide players with a softer feel, while the urethane microspheres consist of over one million tiny air pockets which are designed to absorb any unwanted vibration at impact, without slowing down the face.

Both new sets of new Callaway irons will also contain Callaway’s 360 Face Cup, which employs a shallow, flexible rim around the perimeter of the face that flexes and releases at impact with the aim of providing faster ball speed for consistent distance on center hits and off-center hits. While with the shorter irons, Callaway’s VFT face promises to enhance spin control to allow for more aggressive shot-making.

Callaway has infused an average of 50 grams of tungsten into each iron for greater precision in locating each club’s center of gravity, while maintaining the flexibility of the Face Cup, which aims at promoting optimum launch, ball flight, and pinpoint control throughout the set.

The Apex 19 irons come with a platinum chrome finish and feature a new True Temper Elevate 95 Shaft and Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 Grip. While the Apex Pro 19 irons feature a straighter leading edge, higher toe, thin top line, and a smooth hosel transition for a Tour Performance shape.

The company describes the Apex Pro as “our first ever forged Tour performance iron
with advanced distance technologies…the iron for better players who want all the
benefits of a Tour-level design without sacrificing ball speed or distance.”

In comparison to the Apex 19, the Pro features a straighter leading edge, higher toe, thinner top line, and smoother hosel transition. In other words, the look pros prefer.

The Apex 19 and Apex Pro 19 irons hit the market on January 25. The Apex Pro 19 irons will set you back $1,399, while for the Apex 19 irons, the steel irons come with a price tag of $1,399, while the graphite irons cost $1,499.

For the very first time, Callaway Golf has introduced its Jailbreak Technology into a players hybrid.

The new Apex 19 Hybrid contains two steel Jailbreak bars which stiffen the body, placing more impact load on the face, with the aim of achieving faster ball speed and distance. The club also contains a Forged Face Cup made from Carpenter 455 Steel which is also designed for increasing ball speed.

The latest hybrid from Callaway comes in a dark PVD finish and comes equipped with a True Temper Catalyst Shaft and Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 Grip.

The new Apex 19 Hybrid will be available to buy from January 25, and costs $269.99

Adidas unveils new Stan Smith golf shoe in classic colorway

Published

on

Adidas Golf is bringing the classic Stan Smith colorway to the course, with the new unmistakable white and green golf shoe.

Building upon the new PimeGreen upper made with high-performance recycled materials1 as part of Adidas’ mission to End Plastic Waste, this version is also waterproof (one-year warranty) to help keep golfers dry both on and off the course.

The new Stan Smith golf shoe features a PU cushioning in targeted areas in the midsole to go alongside a PU die-cut sockliner in a bid to provide maximum comfort.

The shoe also contains an adiwear spikeless outsole that features lugs inspired by the shoe’s original sole design, offering some added traction for all course conditions to go along with their style.

“When we were talking about bringing this shoe into golf, the original white and green colorway was a must-have as part of our planning. The Stan Smith silhouette is known throughout the world for being so versatile from a fashion standpoint, so we’re excited to give golfers that same style and versatility for when they head out to the course, now in a more sustainable way.” – Masun Denison, global footwear director, Adidas Golf.

As an ode to the traditions of the past, Adidas has also included a removable white kiltie to provide players another way to wear their shoes and give off some added flair for their round.

This classic white and green colorway of the Stan Smith Golf will be available on adidas.com, through the Adidas app, and at select retail partners worldwide beginning Saturday, May 1.

Lob wedge or no lob wedge? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the necessity of a lob wedge. WRXer ‘rickybooby25’ kicks off the thread, saying

“Do you use a Lob wedge in your current set-up or not? Players nowadays immediately default to using a LW when playing a chip shot around the greens. I currently have a LW in the bag but have been debating on taking it out completely because it creates bad habits when facing a chip shot. What are your thoughts?”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts on the subject in the forum, with some very interesting responses.

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.

  • Chadwickog: “I am in the NO lob wedge camp, it simplifies the decision making when it comes to wedge play, and all shots are still possible if you know how to hit them.”
  • jholz: “I’ve always looked at the lob wedge as a specialty club for special situations. Lower lofted wedges (54* or 56*) are the ones I use for the vast majority of generic chip shots.”
  • timmekang: “I’ve mentioned this in prior posts, but I carry 2 lob wedges. Not all lob wedges are created equal to don’t be afraid to bring more than 1 out on the course with different bounce/grind/etc. and see what works best depending on your lie and circumstances.”
  • lefthack: “I bought one, learned to hit it, but didn’t find a need for it in my bag when there are other clubs I would use more.”
