Apex is back with the new Apex 19 players distance irons and hybrids, and we have our first ever forged Tour performance distance iron with Apex Pro 19! From the expertly crafted shaping to the innovative engineering and construction, this is everything that you need to know about the new line of Apex.
What’s the story on the new Apex 19 Irons? Apex is the ultimate forged players distance iron, and it stands alone for its premium craftsmanship and amazing sound and feel. The new multi-piece construction lives up to the Apex standard for performance and is engineered to deliver an unmatched forged design.
What are the benefits of the new multi-piece construction? These iron have an incredibly soft feel. We’ve engineered our proprietary urethane microspheres into a forged 1025 mild carbon steel body. The carbon steel body promotes amazing Apex sound and feel, and the urethane microspheres consist of over one million tiny air pockets that absorb unwanted vibration without slowing the face.
Our renowned 360 Face Cup employs a shallow, flexible rim around the perimeter of the face that flexes and releases at impact to promote fast ball speed for consistent distance on center hits and off-center hits. In the short irons, the spin control VFT Face is designed for aggressive shot-making in your scoring clubs. This is a distance breakthrough for a forged iron.
The tungsten-infused, multi-material construction allows us to locate the position of the CG in each iron with extraordinary precision while maintaining the flexibility of the Face Cup. This promotes optimum launch, ball flight, and pinpoint control for scoring performance through the set.

To create the Apex Pro 19, we used extensive input from the world’s best players.
