Callaway Apex CF 16
This is the kind of club Callaway excels at: It has a pleasing shape yet maintains the easy-to-hit look at address that's a must for a game-improvement iron. The spring-like cupface (in which the face wraps around the top and sole to enhance flex) provides plenty of pop in the long and middle irons, and there is more than enough forgiveness to assist the middle-handicapper. Judging by our testers' reaction to this club the past two years (a convincing five stars in Performance and Look/Sound/Feel each time), if there were a Mount Rushmore for game-improvement irons, this one would be on it.

It has the sensation of staying on the clubface longer before springing off it.
Even the thin hits felt good. That's insane.
