Iron Upgrade. What to expect?

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I recently went through a fitting at Club Champion and decided to go ahead and upgrade my irons. Based on the results of the fitting, I am going from a set of Mizuno JPX-EZ Forged to Callaway Apex Pros.

So here's what I'm wondering. Those of you who have made the jump from irons more in the game improvement category to more of a blade, what are the biggest differences you noticed? And how long did it take you to feel comfortable with your new irons? 

Bonus question: if you play the Apex Pros, what are your biggest likes and dislikes?

You should have seen the differences in your fitting. There’s going to be variations from each person but some things that will change are spin, potentially peak height and descent angle. For some turf interaction may change.

Without going down the jacked loft rabbit hole one probably will see a distance change in the iron number on the bottom

mishits will be more penalizing with more of a players iron

Immediately better distance, dispersion, and turf interaction. Much more enjoyable to practice and play.

That sounds good to me! Now I just have to wait until they get in.
