increased spin out of the rough.

and longer distance

Callaway Mens Apex Irons
Be prepared to improve your game
Okay, I already submitted a review a month ago but that was before I had put in some real playing time with this irons. Everything I said earlier is accurate, but it's worth a few more thoughts about these clubs.
I got the Recoil 660 shafts in F3 (Regular) flex, standard lie, standard length. I'm getting older and I want a shaft that allows me to swing easier - the Recoil is wonderful. Also, I'm a lefty, and if you play left handed also then you know how difficult it is to find clubs that fit your specifications (e.g., handicap, forged versus cast club heads, etc.). My first set of irons were Ping ISI-K's - copper - with graphite shafts. The best technology for the time, but way too expensive and the shafts felt like #$%^@. Yes, technology has come a long way even in the golf equipment industry. My next set was Mizuno MX20, and I fell in lust with the forged feel - the click when the ball is struck well. Looking for more distance as I got older (I just turned 60), I went with TM Burners. The shafts worked well but I really missed the "click" of the forged club. So, after a lot of homework, I went with the Apex. Home run! I am getting incredible distance, the soft feel of the forged club, and the ease that comes with a graphite shaft.
I played today, and while I played well I also realized I need to adjust mentally. Two aspects of my game need to be addressed. First, these clubs are labeled as game improvement clubs, but I believe them to be equally game enhancement (e.g., players) clubs. The first thing to note is that you will be penalized if your swing is off. This is a good thing really. It has forced me to focus on my swing. The second thing is that when you get the swing right (swing path, follow through, etc.) then the ball goes a mile. These clubs are easily 10 yards longer than my Burners. I flew some greens today, even though I was trying to back off the throttle. Two shots stand out in my memory - a PW at 135 yards, and a 6 iron at 180 yards. Sorry I have just never been that long a hitter. But I hit several greens (the most important metric is GIR by far) whereas in the past I was always hitting up and downs to try to make par.
If you watch the videos on the Callaway site the rep says you can swing easier with these shafts, and its true. You really don't need to kill the ball for it to travel far, and you will get feedback (good or bad) that will help you take your game to the next level. The feel off the clubface is exactly what I was looking to achieve. I think the lighter swing weight increases the club speed that helps make the ball go further. What else could it be, I have not been eating that many bananas lately. BTW I shot 7 over par today which is ample evidence that my handicap will be coming down.

Another one of Callaways Best
I am very satisfied with the Callaway Apex irons. The Recoil shafts makes these irons feel buttery smooth. I was a little concerned about going to graphite shafts (my SS is 100+mph), but all those concerns are history. I absolutely love the weight and feel. More importantly, these irons have given me slightly more distance and great consistency. That has led to a lot of confidence in shot making. If you are considering these irons and want irons with forgiveness, give them a try. You will be doing yourself a favor. Enjoy!

Very long and forgiving irons, but pricey but your paying for quality and performance
Fantastic irons which I found to be extremely long and forgiving to hit and the soft forged feel is a bonus. If you don't mind spending the extra cash the apex irons are one of the best in the market

excellent feel and solid sound
5 handicap 56 years old, recoil graphite stiff shafts. The best callaway irons I have owned and I have played callaway for 15 years going back to X-12's. Ball flight is perfect, long irons fly long and tru through the wind.
