Awesome Combination of Distance and Forgiveness

Got fitted for the Apex DCB's with Tensei White 75g shafts and they are awesome! My dispersions are tighter than ever and I picked up 12 yards per iron (5-PW). Easy to hit and still very workable.

Overall feel and control

I purchased these irons after playing with Mizuno forged irons, I have played in soggy conditions, and clear overall the custom order to fit what I wanted came out perfectly to my designs, the feel, accurate and distance is great. I play right now once a week and have limited physical issues but I cannot complain about these irons!

The Callaway APEX 21 DCB are very nice clubs.

These clubs are responsive. When you hit the ball in the sweet spot the ball jumps off the club. However, when you do miss the sweet spot these clubs still produce ball flights you can be satisfied with generally. The design of the DCBs is progressive: the lower irons have larger soles and in the higher irons the club's soles are not that pronounced. Therefore, in your scoring read more clubs, 9, PW & A irons you can be quite accurate when you hitting into the greens. Nice job Callaway! These are expensive clubs and the quality is there. As for durability, I have onlt had them for a month so time will tell. It took Callaway two times to get my order right. I ordered regular shafted clubs and the first order showed up with stiff shafts. Pretty disappointing to say the least.

Very Forgiving

I am a professional player but even I don't like to hit 4 and 5 irons. I play the Apex in my 6-8 iron and the Apex pro in my 9-GW. I ordered the DCB Apex in my 4 and 5 iron for the extra forgiveness and higher launch angle and they delivered. 7 woods are nice but they spin too much for me playing in the wind. I've never loved hybrids but I've seen them hit well so for me long irons read more are still preferred and this particular model makes that a less scary choice.

I absolutely see a big difference between big bertha callaway irons and apex dcb irons. The distance is very evident as the apex dcb irons have increased 20 plus yards per iron. About the only thing I have an issue with, I tend to over draw the ball at times. Big bertha irons are more forgiving, but I prefer to make my apex dcb irons more fitting to my swing.

Exactly what I was looking for...

Started back up after years of not playing. Was a 6. Worked back to a 12 and was stuck there. Was playing SIM2 with very good results but couldn't get back to single digits. After several hours at the range the ability to work the ball is back. First 18 with the Callaways was the best since before I had to quit. In the 70s...finally. Worth every penny.

Very easy to get in the air. Very easy to hit low shots

The club has a nice look at set up. It is easy to square up to the ball. Nice feeling at the time of ball contact regardless if you’re hitting it off the ground or off of a tee. Has a nice penetrating flight. Very easy to hit low shots out of the trees and you are able to move the ball right to left or left or right.

I ordered this 6 iron, to compliment my Apex21 irons, 7 thru AW. Same specs, same shafts, same grip. It just feels "clunky" or dull compared to the Apex 21 irons. I really do not notice any real game improvement help. Probably just me... my swing... but it was not what I expected.

STICK WITH THE APEX

Played with the Apex 16's but was intrigued by these. Not nearly as smooth and WAY to 'loud' of an audible feedback even on well struck shots. The minimal yardage gain is not worth it for me. I will be returning my DCB's and ordering the standard apex.

Nice feel and easy to hit. High quality irons

My previous irons were the Apex CF-16's so it's been a fairly smooth transition to these DCB irons. Slight difference in feel and a little lower trajectory due to the stronger lofts in the DCB, but I haven't had any issues with stopping the ball. They are a little longer than my CF-16's, so it'll probably take me a while to dial that in until the weather warms up. Overall I'm read more very happy and they are a bit more forgiving than my CF-16's.

These are hands down the best clubs I’ve ever owned.

I ordered the Apex 21 DCB irons with graphite shafts. So needless to say they were very pricey. However, I absolutely love the way they feel, how easy they carry my Chrome Soft Truvus soccer ball style golf balls, and their flight pattern (good strike they are typically straight with lots of height). I also purchased the Super Hybrid which I am absolutely in love with! Unfortunately, read more I returned my Epic Max-LS driver. Perhaps it’s my slow 90-93 mph swing speed, but it seems I lost approximately 20 yds of carry versus my Mavrik Max (which also left me wanting a little more distance). Hopefully, the 2022 Rogue will be a better fit for me and get me back to my Epic Flash distance. All-in-all, Callaway Apex DCB’s are the real deal.

Fantastic irons

I picked up golf again after a 20 year sabbatical and decided to buy all new equipment. I did months of research, hit every iron in this category, and did two club fittings to finally decide on the Apex DCBs. In hindsight, I wasted too much time. There is absolutely no comparison between Apex DCBs and the other irons when it comes to feel of the club due to the forged heads. I realized read more this the first time I hit them but my mind thought “are they forgiving enough?”. This led me down a path of going back and forth between Apex DCBs, Taylor Made Sim2 and Sim2 Max, and Ping G425s. At the end of the day, I was splitting hairs between the forgiveness. If I had to give an edge to one of those clubs for forgiveness I would say the Sim2 Max is the most forgiving; however, it is a bit akin to swinging a shovel and lacks any feedback. With the Sim2 Max I am unconvinced that it helps foster a good golf game if even really horrible shots go relatively straight but the player is left with no knowledge of where the ball impacted and how to improve ones’ swing. The Pings were good but I could not get past the sound and dead feeling of the club on impact. The Apex DCBs are just a completely different animal. They feel good, sound good, and are plenty forgiving enough. My 4-PW, AW set are fitted with True Temper Dynamic Gold X100 Tour Issue shafts and Winn Dri-Tac grips and I could not be happier. I have somewhere in the neighborhood of 5,000 to 6,000 range balls under my belt with them and my game continues to improve in ways I didn’t think would be possible at this point in my golf journey. Callaway has a true gem with these clubs. I have zero regrets with my purchase and highly suggest Apex DCBs to anyone who may be looking for a fantastic set of irons.

When you hit the sweet spot, the ball goes where you want it

After improving my handicap from 35 to 15, I decided to trade-in my Mavrik irons for fitted 2021 Apex DCB irons and 48 degree AW. The biggest improvement to my golf game is laying it on the green with my 7-iron, 9-iron and AW due to better backspin with steeper descent. When I hit the sweet spot, my 5-iron punches it down the fairway into scoring position very well. The Apex DCB read more irons feel smoother with superior launch and descent. Only downside is you need to consistently strike the ball well otherwise you will not enjoy your round of golf. The sweet spot is smaller therefore these are not for high handicap golfers.

incredibly impressive

Having played Callaway Big Bertha for many years I was fitted for a new set of Apex DCB irons. I have seen significant improvement in greens in regulation leading to lower scores. After not playing for over a decade, then returning with the older set of clubs I was consistently posting mid to upper nineties. Since purchasing the Apex DCB and spending a little range time I am seeing read more low to mid eighties. Confidence in a solid, smooth approach to the green cannot be understated.

I am happy to say the look and feel of these clubs check all the boxes for me. I’m 62 years old and have only played for about 10 years now so my swing is still under construction. I’ve learned age read more can steal some swing speed so I was fitted with a lighter weight graphite shaft this time and it has seemed to help. As far as performance……I can truthfully say my shot dispersion has improved greatly with this combination. In fact my first round played with these in league was my lowest ever and was capped off with my first “ Hole in 1” on a 138 yard par 3.

Due to five spine surgeries and big loss of distance and swing speed I was looking for game improvement iron even though I was a 7 handicap.

I'll start off by saying that I'm not a "New Club" kind of guy. For whatever reason, new clubs never really interested me because each year after testing the new models I walked away feeling like I was getting the same performance from my old set that is until I came across Callaway's new Apex 21 DCB's. I can truthfully say this was the only club I tested that had the "Wow" factor. read more In fact, that's exactly what I said after the first swing and I immediately knew these were going in my bag. The club's interaction with the ground along with the ball contact and flight I find to be simply amazing.

After I retrieved the ball from the cup I proudly announced that I was not sending these clubs back. My buddies all laughed but they also started asking questions and asking if they could swing them. All that confirmed that I made the right choice.

If you like the Rogues, you’ll love the Apex DCB

I purchased the Rogue irons in 2018. They were the best irons I had purchased up to that point. As a 14 index golfer, the irons were/are the most consistent part of my game.

I made the mistake of just having my pro read more shop try to duplicate what I had with the Rogues. However, the Mavrik lofts are so much different, and after 25 rounds, I could not get comfortable.
