Two very different models here.

The Apex is much more ‘old school’ in appearance and has more of an iron-like profile.

The Big Bertha is much larger and has more of a mini fairway wood feel.

Both have incorporated Callaway’s Jailbreak technology which connects the crown and the sole to allow the face to take more of the load at impact.

It’s been a real success story for Callaway, adding extra ball speed, stiffening up the club and allowing it to flex a bit more to offer a bit more speed.

The main difference between the clubs is when you start hitting out on the course and set them down behind the ball is the profile.

The Apex looks sleeker, more like an old ‘schoo’l hybrid and is more iron-like. The Big Bertha is oversized and a very friendly, confidence inspiring club.
