  1. I'm so glad I watched this video, as I just purchased a set of Apex DCB irons (before watching this)! I'm a 10 handicap and I'm right about on the line between the APEX irons and the APEX DCB irons. However, I'm 64 years old, and over the next 10 years I'll probably need more of the forgiveness in the DCB irons as time goes by. I think more players out there should be more humble and accept the more forgiving irons! I'm not looking to shape the ball that much–I'll take a dead straight shot everytime!

  2. i enjoyed the reviews and its nice to see a golfer like us that hits over the top a little (by the tee mark on the bottom of the 7 Ping) but it seems more of a review about aesthetics than forgiveness..

  3. Get a new mic mate. You nearly blew my speakers up. Check up the top five best noise cancellation microphones for content. I can hear the change in your pocket

  4. Is sound, feel, and aesthetics important? Very much so. Would you want to hit a club that you may not have the most confidence in? That's the biggest club in your bag, is confidence. Yes those items you mentioned are super important.

  5. All these are good for 5 to 15 handicaps. Clubs like Tour Edge E522 iron/hybrids or Cleveland's HL Halo are better suited for HC's higher than 15. BUT….many would never consider them due to ego.

  6. Got 5-AW in Callaway DCB and really love them…looking forwards to the 2nd generation when callaway launch them…
    Great review as always Andy

  7. I know this guy is speaking the kings English ,but it sounds to me like he is trying to talk with a mouthful of marbles! Sorry but I can't understand what he is saying half the time, maybe it's because I'm too f$#@ing old!

  8. Can't have a credible list of mid high cap irons without including the Cleveland Halo Launcher irons. It's a shame that name brand is prioritized

  9. The Callaway DCB is more of a player's distance club. I had them, they are forged and really don't go. Bad recommendation for a high handicap player. I'm a 10 handicap bought the regular Apex 21's played them for a while they were okay. I am hitting the titleist T-300 now that's a club. How in the world could you leave it out. D-9 what a shovel. T-300 good looking and great forgiveness and it go's. Go hit it…

  10. The APEX DCB was the runner up at my fitting. I chose the Taylormade P790 (2021) based on the fact that I had a 160 yard carry with a 7i. I am a 62 year old mid handicapper. My 7i club head speed that day was a measly 70 mph. That tells me the technology was compensating for my age. At my fitting I did discover I needed a 2 degree up lie, I never knew that so please promote getting fit for your set. Thanks for the info!
