    Technology Specs

    Apex CF 16 Irons Technology Item
    • Distance With Playability

      This is our first face cup in a forged players iron. We’ve taken our industry-leading 360 Face Cup technology that’s redefined ball speed in fairway woods and irons, and precision engineered the face cup to give you consistent ball speed across the face in a forged Apex design.

    • Scoring Performance Through The Set

      The progressive offset, sole widths, CG height and notch weighting provide the right balance of ball flight, playability, forgiveness and control for each iron. The longer irons feature more offset where you need it for more forgiveness, while the shorter irons have a more compact shape with less offset for feel and control.

    • Multi-Piece Construction

      This high tech construction goes through the whole set to create a remarkable combination of distance, feel and control for any player. The longer irons (3-7) utilize the 360 Face Cup to increase ball speeds and forgiveness across the face. In the shorter irons (8-AW), we’ve included a unique engineered face plate to enhance feel and distance control.

    • Extremely Soft Feel From Advanced Forging

      We applied an extremely precise quadruple net forging, precision milling, and 1025 mild carbon steel to produce a new standard for incredibly soft feel in a forged iron.

    • Premium Shaft Offerings

      True Temper XP 95 stock steel offering with a wide selection of steel shaft options at no upcharge.

    Apex CF 16 Irons is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 282.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from These irons are good! I purchased the Apex CF16 irons because my old irons presented too much offset. My old irons were too difficult to aim/play-consistently-well. I now own irons that do not get in my way. I can score low with the Apex CF16. Lastly, the Callaway Customer Service was wonderful. I am now inclined to make all future club purchases directly from the manufacturer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great clubs. / Great value Played a friends Callaway Apex CF 16 irons and decided I wanted to buy a set. Found exactly what I was looking at Callaway Pre Owned. Price was great compared to retail golf stores. Transaction worked smoothly. I was able to trade in my set of Ping irons at a reasonable return. Have used Callaway Pre Owned since for a club for my wife. Will always check this site for future club purchases.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Satisfied Pros: I purchased the Apex CF 16 irons from Callaway Pre-Owned. A week after the purchase, the cost was reduced. When I called Callaway Pre-Owned, they credited my account with the difference no questions asked. I was happy with the customer service and the purchase itself. The clubs were listed as "like new" condition, and when I received them, they looked brand new. I probably paid half the price of what I would have paid if I bought these same irons in stores. I was happy with the purchase. I upgraded from X-Hot Pro irons. The Apex CF 16 is a far superior club. On quality strikes, it almost seems as if I don't feel the ball on the club face at impact. Callaway classifies these clubs as being mid to low handicap irons. I personally think they are closer to the mid-handicap range. The top line and sole might be a touch thicker than what one would expect for a players iron. For me, with the 4 and 5 iron, I can see part of the back of the club behind the top line at address. A mid handicap iron actually suits my game better, so no complaints from me. But if you are a lower handicap player, you might give stronger consideration to the Apex CF 16 Pro irons. Cons: I really think Callaway missed the mark by making the True Temper XP 95 the stock shaft for the Apex CF 16. In my opinion, the XP 95 is more of a game improvement shaft. It seems like a mismatch that this would be the stock shaft for what is advertised as a mid to low handicapper club. I'm partly to blame for not doing more research beforehand. I'm not overly crazy when it comes to customization, but found the XP 95 to be too light of a shaft, and it promotes too high of a launch for my swing. I'm switching out the shafts and replacing with Project X 5.5 shafts, hoping this will provide a more suitable ball flight for my swing. As a reference point, I'm 35 years old. I would consider my swing speed and tempo to be slightly above average and I carry my 7-iron approximately 160 yards. All in all, I'm pleased with the clubs and still feel like I came out ahead, even having to swap out shafts.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect club for me! For the last few years I had Demo'd a number of game improvement clubs to replace my old titleist 690 CB's. I loved the irons but now need something more forgiving. I went to numerous demo days and tried all the major club club companies irons. After narrowing the search to titleist ap2, ap1, mizuno jpx forged, and the Apex irons, I went to a PGA Store and two different golf galaxy stores to continue testing the three irons. The Apex irons with the recoil shafts were hands down the best for me. I loved the look of the irons. The progressive offsets, and the size, and the forgiveness of the iron was the perfect combination for me. I gained as much as 12 to 15 yards further in distance which I needed to get back as I am now 64. The clubs are very workable as I can draw and fade shots as needed. As I said, the perfect clubs for me!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Average Rating for Irons The average rating for these clubs did not reflect the actual condition of the clubs. The sole of the irons appeared to have been ground or sanded to the extent that it affected the lie of the lie and loft of the club. I returned these clubs as being unacceptable and am waiting for a close to this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like Butter!!!! I know that phrase gets old when it comes to describing what its like to pure an iron shot with forged clubs but these clubs are some of the best I've felt. I've most recently been playing Titleist AP1's and felt like I needed a little more from my irons. I had a set of Apex's in the past when they were still Hogan and I played them for many years and these irons always had intrigued me. I decided to try them out and was impressed but not completely sold. After taking some time and and evaluation I decided to get a set and have finally began to bond with them. These are definitely some of the nicest iron I had ever gamed. Ball jumps off the face with a nice smooth pop. Great ball flight for me as I have always hit a high ball. I'm about a 12 Hcp and can sometimes play like an 8 but always have been a bit hesitant with what I feel are player irons. While these blur the lines a bit, they are a perfect combination of feel and forgiveness. I might get a back up set!!!!!
