Having gamed previous models of this iron, I eagerly awaited the release of the Callaway Apex MB 2024 iron, and thankfully it did not disappoint. This latest addition to the Apex family delivers a striking blend of classic aesthetics and cutting-edge technology. With a focus on pure precision and exceptional workability, the new Apex MB 2024 iron ticks a lot of boxes for precise ball strikers shopping for a new set among the best golf blade irons. In this review, we delve into the features, design, and performance of this tour-inspired iron.
The Callaway Apex MB 2024 iron combines a sleek and timeless design with some useful modern features, such as the interchangeable weight cavity directly behind the hitting area, which creates a unique aesthetic for an iron of its type. The traditional muscle-back shape is exquisitely crafted from high-quality 1025 carbon steel. The iron has a slightly longer blade length than previous iterations which may not appeal to purists, but I found this instilled confidence at address and didn’t compromise the overall look too much. The profile at address is again slightly different from some other blade irons on the market, with a long topline that comes very directly out of the hosel, whereas others have a softer, more curved transition from hosel to topline. These visuals are always subjective, and whilst my preference would probably lean toward the softer transition, the Apex MB is still a treat to the eye. The beautiful satin finish not only enhances durability but also exudes elegance that’ll make any golfer proud to wield these in their bag.
The Apex MB 2024 body and face are forged as one piece in a proprietary forging process from 1025 carbon steel, creating a very deep and satisfying feeling at impact. Additionally, the progressive CG (Center of Gravity) positioning is a nice addition, with a lower CG in the longer irons providing a little more flight whilst the shorter irons feature a higher CG which promotes a more controlled, lower flight for elite players seeking precise trajectory control.
When it comes to performance, the Apex MB 2024 iron impresses. My testing was conducted…
