Callaway Apex irons are in the shop! What golfers are ordering CUSTOMIZED at fairwaygolfusa.com

Still wondering what irons you want to play?
I personally recommend the Callaway APEX irons which hit the store floors today!
Look!  It's simple, soft curves around the edges
(makes the club look smaller than it actually is)
Tungsten inserts in the longer irons to promote higher ball flight
(if you are getting roll with mid to long irons, you are not getting enough trajectory!  Tungsten weighting will help)
Mid size head with a Hot face
(Ball will jump off the face.  You can feel it!)
Profile that gives you confidence!
(don't be too hard on yourself, get clubs that give you confidence!)
Now all you have to do is get customized!
Want to know what our customers have ordered during the prebooking period:
Dynamic Gold  *most popular
Project X PXi
XP 95 steel

KBS C-Taper  *2nd most popular
Kuro Kage 70
See all the customizing options at fairwaygolfusa.com APEX iron custom page:
If  you need recommendations, talk to one of our club fitters at cs@fairwaygolfusa.com
If you shoot between 70 and 90 and looking for a simple iron that you can use for a long time and not get board with it, choose the Callaway APEX irons!
Those who wanted the Japanese Legacy irons, this is a less expensive comparable product available!
The US Tour players are choosing APEX irons!


New Callaway APEX irons - XP95 or Recoil 680? by the numbers

New Callaway is going to hit the retail floor tomorrow at your favorite golf shop and at Fairway Golf Shop.
We did receive our irons for stock and ready to go!
I pulled out #6 irons with XP95 and Recoil 600 Series Stiff flex to do some number comparison.
XP95 is a new shaft from True Temper designed with optimized step patterns and weighting to give you a high trajectory and explosive distance.
This it the number that I got on the Callaway Apex iron XP95 steel shaft with stiff flex:
CPM:  303
Swingweight:  D-2
Total Weight:  415grams
The UST Recoil shaft is a shaft designed to take full advantage of the ovalization of the shaft during loading of the shaft.  It uses the ovalization and un-ovalization of the shaft during the swing to transfer that energy to the golf ball for more distance.

This is the numbers that I got on the Callaway APEX iron with Recoil 600 series graphite shaft with stiff flex shaft:
CPM: 306
Swingweight:  D-1
Total Weight:  385grams
I had a chance to test these out couple of months ago at the Callaway Performance Center at Callaway headquarters.
My choice is the Recoil Stiff flex.
(I currently use the 105 gram Mizuno Tour Exsar Graphite shaft)
Even though the Recoil shaft is 30 grams lighter (in the stiff flex), I did not feel the club was too light!
I could not tell whether it was the 455 carpenter steel shaft that produced the initial ball speed or the Recoil ovalization effect but I did get great yardage.
With many clubs featuring the hot steel face on their irons, this year is going to be a year when golfers increase distance on the irons!
You might see pros hitting 200 yards with a #7 iron (which some already do)
Apex irons are also available with your favorite shafts and grips.
Customized lie angle, hard or soft stepping is not problem.
If you have any questions on customizing  your Apex irons, feel free to send our club fitters and email!

Have fun!


What about balls? My personal golf ball recommendation (Part 1)

Last minute gift? Golfer but don't know what to get for the Holidays?

Buy some golf balls.

Golfers always need golf balls.  (they lose them)

But first you need to categorize your golfer:

  • Good golfer
  • Casual golfer
  • Lady golfer
  • Junior golfer
For the Good Golfer:
  • Good golfers usually have their favorites.  But they don't mind getting premium golf balls.  By getting premium golf balls, they understand that you respect their skills and dedication.
  • Premium golf balls are usually multi layer construction for various type of shots cased in with an urethane cover for "feel and spin".
  • My recommendations:
King of golf balls
Every one in the industry will agree that it has the #1 market share in golf
There are 2 types: Pro V1 and Pro V1X
At least for the cold weather months, Pro V1 would be a safer choice because it gives you softer feel (easier on your hands) and more spin (any spin would help on those frozen greens)
Super Holiday Special offer for $41.99 until 12/31/2013
My other recommendations will be:
These Golf Balls really perform for all types of players!
Even better players will benefit.
If the golfer really like "softer feel" try the B330-S
The New Spinskin covers is really nice!
Right now there is a promo: buy 2 dozen and receive a pair of 2under boxers!
For the casual golfer:
  • Golf should be fun
  • Needs a ball that has good distance with less spin (especially side spins)
  • You can still work your spin around the greens and have fun for a good solid round
  • My recommendations:


Solid performance off the tee.
Ball characteristics are right between distance and performance.
If you are complaining that you need a softer feel, go with premium golf balls.
If you are complaining because the ball is going to straight and not flying with you intended baby draw, go with a premium ball.
This is the best ball for the value in my opinion.
We sell the NXT ball a lot during the holidays.
Durable solid performing golf ball.
It is a Titleist.

    - end of Part 1 -
    (part 2 will be about ladies and junior and illegal golf balls)
    In any case, buying golf balls as a gift is a great idea.
    check out our golf ball page for all the selection:
    Free personalization available too!

Callaway Legacy Black Driver - Japanese model

It is a draw biased driver finished with Rainbow PVD finish.

Amazing driver coming from Callaway......  in the US


Callaway New Apex Forged irons - custom choices and JD predictions

I am sure that many have heard that the new Callaway Apex irons are coming.
There seems to be a lot of questions regarding how it compares against the current 2013 X Forged irons that has been on the market for a while.
Frist of all, the Apex Irons are a completely different category of irons compared to the X Forged.  It does not replace the X Forged irons.
Yes, it is a forged iron but made of multi material construction.
1020 carbon steel body
455 carpenter steel  (Hot face)
Polymer insert
It combines feel, distance and forgiveness.
You asked for it, and here it is!
The irons in 2014 is about distance.  That is one of the reason that many like the new Japanese equipment like EPON and Yonex.
It is the HOOOOOT face that launches the ball far.  Very far.
Some may argue that irons are not about hitting it long.
But once you hit the #7 iron to where you normally hit the #6 iron, you can never go back.
The Apex irons are very forgiving.
The Hot Face launches the ball far.
The forged materials gives you that precise feedback for your solid shots and your not so solid shots.
There are many custom options as always and at fairwaygolfusa.com, we recommend getting customized to fit your swing.
Custom Lie Angle
Custom Loft Settings
is key to hitting the shot that you imagine.
Custom shaft options are:
  • True Temper Dynamic Gold XP 95
  • UST Recoil 660
  • KBS C-Taper
  • KBS Tour
  • NS Pro Modus 130 Tour
  • NS Pro 990
  • NS Pro 1100
  • Project X 95 Flighted
  • Project X PXi
  • Projext X
  • Dynamic Gold SL
  • Dynamic Gold
  • Dynamic Gold XP
  • Mitsubishi Kurokage 70 graphite
I have seen it, I have hit it, I like it
My predictions for popular specifications is as follows:
set make-up: 5-9P (6 pc set)
  • Since because of the hot face, many would want to know how far the #5 iron will fly before they make their decision on the #4 iron.
  • yes #4 iron is available individually just in case you want to add to the set
Shaft:  UST Recoil 660 for graphite and NS Pro 990
  • For this type of club, many will be looking for a easy to swing set up
  • Shaft selection on this irons will be generally on the lighter side
  • UST Recoil 660 feels solid (this would be my choice)
  • Nippon shaft steel quality is the best and the NS Pro 990 which is a proprietary shaft for Callaway comes in Uniflex (Almost a stiff) is best for the average golfers
  • For the hard hitters out their, NS Pro Modus 130 Tour would give you good control with less dispersion
Grips:  not on the option but we do get many requests for Iomic grips (which fairwaygolfusa.com can offer for an additional charge)
Your 2014 golf game starts now!


Yonex Ezone XP is here to put a curse on you!

Growing demand for Yonex Products
This is what we are seeing in our customer requests that we get every day at fairwaygolfusa.com
Yonex is coming out with the Ezone XP line of golf equipment.
Just in time for the holidays.
Below is the Japanese special Yonex Ezone XP page:
The slogan in Japan is:
"The Red Devil will put a curse of distance on you!"
Cool graphics on the website.  I like it!
Heavy head but not heavy.
8 grams of tungsten in head counter balanced with 20 grams of tungsten in the butt end of the grip cancels out the heavy feeling of more head weight.
Why make the head heavy?
Heavy head = faster initial ball speed
Adjustable hosel with 8 different loft settings where you can change the loft +/- 1.5degrees
so no excuses.
Yonex Ezone XP line of products are available in drivers, fairway woods, hybrids and irons.
Irons go a long ways too!
