James Mason tests the new Apex 19 hybrid with Jailbreak technology


The Apex family has a well-deserved reputation and Callaway have added the Apex 19 hybrid to this family and utilises the Jailbreak technology. Two steel Jailbreak bars link the crown and soul together and are positioned vertically behind the 455 Carpenter Steel Face Cup. This helps stiffen the body on impact and helps generate enhanced ball speeds and distances across all areas of the face.

Callaway state they want to give accomplished golfers and the best in the game the ball speed benefits of the Jailbreak technology, while maintaining a look and feel associated with long irons, while the compact head design comes with a classic dark PVD finish.

The Apex Hybrids transition perfectly from your irons and have a neutral bias for those who like to shape their shots, while still retaining a controllable flatter ball flight. Apex Hybrids are available in 2H (18°), 3H (20°), 4H (22°) and 5H (24°) and are fitted with the Project X Graphite shafts as standard.


The new Apex 19 was tested down in Kent on several windy cold days, so not ideal conditions if you are trying to measure distance, but for feel, trajectory and having to play longer shots in the winter these are ideal conditions for testing a hybrid.

The first thing you will notice at address is the look, it certainly has an iron look about and is the perfect transition between your longer irons and woods and the face certainly looks more like an iron than a wood, which I really liked.

There is no adjustment on this club and I was getting a nice strong ball flight with a slight draw which I felt was perfect and I was averaging around 190-yards with this and considering that ball isn’t flying as far as it would in the summer I feel that is a very good yardage.

Having a hybrid in the bag is a must and I like a strong club that has the potential to replace my 3-wood if I need it to, so I can get another wedge in the bag. I found the Apex 19 a no nonsense easy to hit club from the rough or fairway with great distance and with the Jailbreak technology it gives you a solid sound at impact and should definitely be on your testing list when you decide to replace your current model.
