Callaway Apex DCB Vs Titleist T300 Comparison And Review

Callaway and Titleist are two of the most famous brand names in golf and their irons are always at the top of the market.

While Titleist has been known to produce irons for better players excelusivly, they have now branched into more beginner friendly clubs, including the T300’s

The Apex are a quality family of forged irons and the DCB are the longest and most forgiving while still maintaining an element of feel and shot shaping ability.

Callaway Apex DCB Irons Overview

The Apex DCB irons are the most forgiving member of the Apex forged iron family with the Apex and Apex Pro completing the set.

The Apex DCB are the largest and have the longest face design with perimeter weighting and the toe and heel to expand the sweet sport.

The thick soles are designed for distance and you also get plenty of turf interaction and spin rates with these cavity backs.

The forged, carbon steel, ultra thin face leads to excellent ball speeds and also gives the golfer an optimal amount of feel and control.

While the clubs suit high to mid handicappers, there are more forgiving irons out there for complete beginners. This is more for someone with aspirations of becoming a high level golfer.

Titleist T300 Irons Overview

One of the nicest game improvement irons in the game with the Titleist T300, a high to mid handicap iron, brimming with advanced features.

On thing to notice is the thick sole that manages to look compact at address and a deep undercut for really getting hold of the ball.

The irons are progressive, meaning they are longer and more forgiving in the long irons and a lot more workability in the short irons for adding spin and hunting the pin.

The polymer badge adds to stability and dampens vibrations in the longer irons but disappears in the short irons.

The forged face offers exclusive feel but it’s also ultra thin to promote fast ball speeds.

You can expect feel, workability and distance from these irons, any golfer can benefit from using them.

These Irons are going to be very similar but we find the Titleist T300 to be just a little bit classier and we recommend the T300’s despite the hefty price tag.

Callaway Apex DCB First Impressions


We knew that the Callaway Apex DCB irons targeted mid to high handicappers but they don’t feel like it.

Right from the gate, we were blown away with the feel of these irons. The feel of the forged 1025 carbon steel is amazing. It allows for a solid feel at contact with feedback you would expect from tour-grade irons.

Assisting with the soft feel of these irons is the layer of urethane microspheres included in the head. We also liked that the sole had a substantial footprint.

This will play well with high handicappers at it just looks more comforting at point of address.

The Callaway Apex DCB irons are available with graphite UST Mamiya Recoil Dart shafts and steel True Temper Elevate ETS 85 shafts.

The graphite shafts will certainly be more beneficial for high handicap players so those were the ones we tested.

The 4 and 5 irons are what we tested first and we were impressed with the distance and launch. The set starts with a 4 iron at a considerable 20 degrees of loft then jumps up to 23 degrees in the 5 iron.

The Callaway Apex DCB irons certainly impressed with their feel, distance and launch.

Titleist T300- First Impressions

The first thing you notice about these Cavity Irons is how the top line looks deceptively thin for an iron that is primarily built for distance.

The second thing that is immediately obvious is that there are a few key differences between the short and the longer irons.

The shorted irons have thinner soles, leading to increased workability that can be useful to even single digit handicappers while that trend is reversed in the longer irons, which focus more on distance.

The long irons have a polymer insert that makes these cavity backs sound and feel much better than a regular cavity back. The longer irons also have tungsten weighting in the head that keeps the center of gravity low and MOI high for ultimate performance.

The result is irons that generate quite a bit more distance than the AP1’s and can hold their own with any forgiving distance iron on the market.

Who are the Callaway Apex DCB Irons For?


The Callaway Apex DCB irons were designed for players with a handicap of 10 and higher.

The Callaway Apex DCB irons clearly have something to offer both mid and high handicap players. However, for high handicap players, the DCB’s will mostly be beneficial for distance, feel and launch. They don’t offer much help with off-center shots.

The Callaway Apex DCB irons could certainly stand to be a little more forgiving but they would still be a solid choice for beginners ready to break through to the mid handicap range.
