Callaway Apex DCB Vs Ping G425 Comparison And Review
Two exceptional and somewhat similar irons from golfing legends Callaway and Ping.
These irons would traditionally be for mid handicappers but with modern technology, they are now forgiving enough for high handicappers too, but mostly those looking to take their game up a level or two.
The Apex DCB are the most forgiving in the new Apex range and the G425’s are similar to the G410’s but have a more compact face.
Callaway Apex DCB Irons Overview
We get a lot of the modern Callaway technology in the Apex DCB’s and the first thing to notice is the thick soles which give a lot of distance.
There is a deep undercut on the cavity back design as well to get the ball in the air quite easily and with decent spin.
The DCB’s have more offset than the other apex irons too, offering straight shots for people who are prone to slicing.
There is carbon steel face which is forged which helps combine for an excellent feel alongside the distance and ease of hitting.
Perimeter weighting stretches the sweet spot and the irons are perfect for high to mid handicappers looking to take it up a notch with their iron play.
Ping G425 Irons Overview
One of the more interesting facts about the G425 irons is that they offer almost identical performance to the G410’s except they have a more compact and nicer looking head.
Off the bat, you notice the thickness of the soles which is going to promote a lot of distance.
The tungsten screw in the head also stands out, matched by a weight in the heel for an extended sweet spot while the metal wood finish allows for excellent ball speeds.
The clubs have a visible hinge at the heel which adds more flexibilty and the face is variable thickness which adds another two layers of forgivness.
Urethane Microspheres dampen any vibrations and these compact heads feel great to hit and they are quite hot.
The forgiving lofts of the G425’s should result in high, towering strikes.
Both of these irons are perfect for those looking to get to the Mid handicapper level from where they are at.
The G425 are going to be more forgiving while the Apex DCB’s are going to be more workable. Two excellent sets of clubs overall.
