Driver: Callaway Mavrik Sub Zero (9 Degrees)
The driver has the FS2S Titanium faces. So the face feels light and stronger than the usual Titanium face. Besides, it possesses extra high rebound capabilities. Its 450cc head also has two interchangeable weights to help influence launch characteristics to your liking.
It uses the Cyclone aero shape and hence displaces minimal air to be a more aerodynamic driver. Borrowing from A.I. face design Mavrik Sub Zero achieves high moments of inertia, more forgiving yet still doesn’t compromise accuracy.
The driver comes in three different models. The standard model, which has the fastest shape design, suits mid handicappers and Tour players. However, the Max model offers easy-to-launch and high MOI. In summary, the driver gives fast speed, forgiveness, and satisfying sound.
Fairway Woods: Callaway Epic Flash Sub Zero (13.5 Degrees)
The fairway woods rely on the new flash face technology and benefits mainly players with fast swing types. So it enables a golfer to precisely shape his shots. The flash injects unique reformation to the face.
When combined with the forged carpenter steel face cup, the fairway wood delivers enhanced ball speed and distance coverage.
With the help of jailbreak technology, the club has two internally placed bars to stiffen the body. Consequently, that creates a more rebound effect on the impact and therefore boosting ball speed.
Besides, it offers dual adjustable weights of 2g and 16g. You can reposition the two weights and so fine-tune the launch spin and trajectory to your liking.
Hybrid: Callaway Apex, (18 Degrees)
The hybrid has a structure geared towards better golfers. Its long attractive head, slim body, and low profile help it achieve the lower center of gravity. Therefore it’s an easy-to-hit hybrid.
And talking of low center of gravity, the hybrid uses the combination of the internal standing wave and a 6g weight to achieve a low CG. A forged face cup and 455 carpenter steel insert make up for a large sweet spot on the hybrid.
Also, the face is forgiving on off-center strikes owing to its structure. Its high square profile and more weight on the toes further boost the hybrid’s forgiveness.
Irons (4-9): Callaway Apex Pro 19
In design, the iron picks on 1025 mild carbon steel bodies and blends with urethane microspheres. So the millions of tiny holes absorb unwanted vibrations, thus helping the club generate a soft feel.
In addition, it employs the 360 face cup, and the club’s edges beautifully wrap on the body. Accordingly, it boosts its speed. At the same time, it uses a 50g weight in the lower portion of the toe to influence the CG placement accordingly.
And as expected, it helps to maintain ball speed on off-center strikes. Also, it makes use of the urethane microspheres to dampen undesirable vibrations. Accordingly, that improves the feel and sound of the Callaway Apex Pro 19 irons.
It’s the crisp feel, slight forgiveness, and distance performance that make up the Callaway Apex Pro 19 iron. On the same note, Ollie Schniederjans WITB also stuffs the same club.
Wedges: Callaway Mack Daddy 5 (46, 50, 56, 60 Degrees)
When it comes to wedges, Alex Noren WITB and Marc Leishman WITB 2021 share the same wedge, Callaway Mack Daddy 5. Callaway uses the 8620 mild carbon steel to help deliver precise shape, dazzling look, and a soft substantial feel in the Callaway Mack Daddy 5 wedges.
The wedges are available in 23 lofts/bounce combinations and five sole grinds. So, it’s easy to find the combination that works for you.
Besides the versatility, the groove-in grove technology offers more spin and precise control of the ball. The grind variations mean better turf interaction and playability on different course conditions.
Putter: Odyssey O-Works #1 Wide
The outstanding feature that better golfers admire about Odyssey O-Works #1 Wide is the better roll. The superior roll comes from the new microhinge face insert technology that awards it outstanding gain in roll and spin, your stroke notwithstanding.
Though the microhinge plate is of stainless steel material it’s co-molded with a thermoplastic elastomer feel layer. As a result, it improves the feel, geometry and hence setting the ball at a better roll.
Considering it uses the improved versa alignment technology, it should be effortless to align. The high contrast alignment technique offers a better visual of the face angle ranging from the impact zone to the address line.
Ball: Callaway Chrome Soft X
Designed around a large soft core ball, the Callaway Chrome soft x looks promising in incredible speed and distance. A dual core-mantle system plays a key role in its performance. Thus it’s different from Chrome Soft found in Thomas Pieters WITB.
The blend of a soft inner mantle and firm high resilience cover produces high speed and enhanced distance. Furthermore, a thin but durable cover not only enhances speed but delivers low spin and more control around the green.
Its optimized aero design minimizes drag, thereby enhancing distance and delivering penetrating ball flight trajectories. So the Callaway Chrome Soft X ball excels in incredible speed, distance, and spin control.
Alex Noren wades carefully through the Callaway clubs and picks on fine clubs that help him showcase his best skills. And with such clubs, he has won the European Tour multiple times.
Having proved the capability of those clubs, you can count on them. Therefore when you need to upgrade or replace a club from your bag, go for the proven models. You won’t regret the investment.
