REVIEW – “The Callaway Apex TCB is a ball striker’s dream iron”

At the beginning of this year we saw Callaway unveils its largest ever Apex family of irons, and the real highlight for me was the new TCB.

The TCB is an entirely new addition to the family, designed to cater to the needs of pure ball strikers and the best players in the world.

It has already proved to be a very popular choice among Callaway’s tour staff, with the likes of Jon Rahm, Xander Schauffele and Marc Leishman all choosing to stick a set in the bag.

This hasn’t come as much of a surprise. The tour-inspired, multi-material 1025 forged cavity back design is the ideal fit for golfers who demand ultimate control from their irons, to go along with a level of additional forgiveness that a pure muscleback design simply can’t provide.

When designing the TCB Callaway paid close attention to shaping and the results are magnificent. This compact head, with its classic look behind the ball and minimal offset are a joy to behold.

Out on the golf course the TCB provides the flat and controlled trajectory I like to see from my irons. This isn’t an iron built for maximum distance and forgiveness, for that see the other options in the Apex family. No, the TCB does what it’s supposed to do. It hits your numbers and does so time after time.

Not many irons can match it when it comes to that feeling of complete control over your ball flight.

Although it is an out-and-out player’s iron, the TCB does offer a decent level of forgiveness, especially in the long irons and when compared to the Apex MB blade.

A word of warning, however, you should only really be contemplating adding the TCB to your arsenal if you can find the middle of the clubface on a very consistent basis.

When it comes to feel it is pretty much as you would expect. The forged 1025 construction delivers the soft feel better player’s demand from their irons, while the leading edge cuts through the turf like a hot knife through butter.

In many ways the TCB is a ball striker’s dream iron and it is the best design I have ever seen from Callaway in this category. It is phenomenal.
