Callaway Apex DCB Vs. Taylormade Stealth Irons Comparison Overview
Today we are going to be taking a look at a couple of iron sets that defy their genre. While no one would argue that the Taylormade Stealth and Callaway Apex DCB irons fall into the category of game-improvement irons, we would humbly argue that they barely fit the profile of game-improvement irons.
There are some common features between these two sets that make them nearly player’s performance irons. Find out all the important details you need to know about these two sets in the following comparison overview.
Callaway Apex DCB Irons Overview
The Apex moniker is an apt one for this set of irons.
The Callaway Apex DCB irons feature a prominent sole which, as the name alludes to, helps yield maximum launch angles. But by far the most impressive thing about these irons (and part of what makes them feel better than typical game-improvement irons) is the forged 1025 carbon steel body.
And while the sole width is considerable, the overall head profile still manages to be pretty scant. This combo gives the Apex DCB irons the feel and the look of player’s performance irons. However, the tungsten weighting that emphasizes low/rear CG smacks of game improvement.
Overall, you get a moderate degree of workability out of these irons. Unfortunately though, this comes at the expense of distance.
Taylormade Stealth Irons Overview
The Taylormade Stealth irons also have added sole mass in order to promote high launch angles.
This common feature lends both the Taylormade Stealth and the Apex DCB irons a good degree of short-game performance. The Taylormade Stealth irons were the longer clubs overall though. The 4 iron in the Stealth set was averaging 182 yards while the 4 iron of the Apex DCB set was averaging 176 yards.
The hollow body and detached face of the Taylormade Stealth irons certainly make them game-improvement irons. They have a lesser feel than player’s performance irons, provide weaker feedback but offer more help with distance.
In short, you won’t need a ridiculously fast swing speed to get adequate distance from the Taylormade Stealth irons.
The Callaway Apex DCB iron belie their game-improvement designation by providing a premium feel. The Taylormade Stealth irons give you the launch you need to refine your short game more than a typical game-improvement iron set would. The Taylormade Stealth irons are also longer than the Apex DCB’s.
