PostSubject: The New Face of the Callaway Apex   Tue Nov 26, 2013 6:25 pm

Back in the days of Ben Hogan Golf, the Apex has always been the signature of the brand. Years ago, the Ben Hogan brand was acquired by Callaway and it must have been a decade since we heard about the brand.

Re-birth late this year for 2014 official launch, the New Apex line offers golfers of different levels the chance to experience the spirit of the Apex in 2 range - the Apex Forged and the Apex Pro Forged.

for those who demand good looks with good design and performance, the New Apex will not disappoint...

Shown here are the pair of aces...




The friendlier and more forgiving Apex Forged with a tad more offset....



another perspective... a wider sole and the top line is a bit more pronounced...



The Sexier Apex Pro Forged.......all mean and looking very preciser....




Another look....truly a looker.....




In case you are wondering when these babies will arrive...well the demos are available for testing from today. Set in Steefibers and KBS Tours for your testing pleasures.

See you real soon......DGman

I think DGman's photos are already very good, with the 85mm on a larger sensor I am certain his posts will be a severe test for even more of us.

Watch the razor-thin depth of field though...

thank you everyone for your PM, phone calls and threats. 

we still do not have a price as its still adjusted to make custom fitting more competitive than parallel importers. 

i do not have a date yet for the rest of the shipment but you are welcomed to come and try out the Apex on different shafts.

Paul - its not the background but the camera used to take the photos...the full frame gives better detailing and the focal length creates less distortion in this case. anyway its for another forum.

shipping for the Apex is destined for the middle of Dec but as far as pricing is concerned, we are still working it out to make it really attractive.

Pardon me for the poor pic.....not as loaded as you-know-who to get his arsenal of cameras.
Callaway Legacy on the left. Apex on the right. Superb satin finish for the Apex, I must say.



Had the chance to hit the Apex iron earlier at the Den (Finally!!!).
Was not impressed at all when I hit the demo with the KBS shaft and was not that inclined to
hit the Steelfiber I95 Stiff either (coz I cannot manage stiff for that shaft).

However, curiosity got the better of me. The first swing took my breath away.
Wow! Surprised and suitably impressed.

Took a few more swings. And the feel, contact and sound were so much better than the previous one with KBS shaft. No wonder many who have tried said that the Apex is buttery soft feel. 
Now I understand......

What I dun understand is....how the %@$^ am I going to raise funds for this set!??!

affraid

No lah. Hockey swing no good. So break stick easily. hence a set is required.

lol!
