Callaway Apex Smoke 19 Single Iron
Who’s It For?
The Apex Smoke 19 irons from Callaway deliver the exceptional distance and ball speed generally found in game-improvement irons and pair that with the precision and workability of a forged design. The new multi-piece construction lives up to the high standard that previous Apex products have set and includes a sleek new smoke PVD finish. This is a great choice for skilled players in search of extra distance from their irons. However, mid- or high-handicap players would likely benefit more from the 2019 Big Bertha irons, while highly-skilled golfers who prefer Tour-level workability and precision may want to try the Apex Pro Smoke 19 irons. Golfers also have the option to gain all of the same technology in the Apex Smoke 19 irons in a chrome finish, rather than the grey smoke look, with the Apex 19 irons.
The Tech Story
Callaway’s Apex Smoke 19 irons are highlighted by the eye-opening new gray smoke PVD finish, including a new Apex Smoke Medallion, that produces a distinct, premium visual appearance. But it’s the technology packed inside these irons that results in exceptional performance. The forged 1025 mild carbon steel body and, for the first time in Callaway forged iron, urethane microspheres combine to produce incredibly soft feel. The urethane microspheres are made up of over one million tiny air pockets that absorb unwanted vibration without sacrificing speed. These irons get their excellent distance and ball speed from Callaway’s 360 Face Cup technology, which employs a shallow and flexible rim around the outside of the face that flexes and releases at impact to promote a high ball speed and great distance all across the hitting zone. The result is superb distance on contact made in the sweet spot or contact made off-center. The Apex Smoke 19 irons boast workability and precision due to a tungsten-infused, multi-material construction that allows the CG location to be precisely position in each iron for maximum control. With all of that said, the result is an iron that offers a sleek, modern look, exceptional distance, and excellent feel without sacrificing workability.
