Hey everyone. Today I will share with you a review of the Titleist CB 712 irons. These beautiful blades are definitely made for better players. They are best described as high performance, forged cavity back irons that pack a number of improvements into a familiar looking package.
The Titleist CB 712 will be available in both right and left hand models. Thanks to the traditional, standard lofts, the CB produces a "player preferred" trajectory and a greater degree of shot control and workability. The slightly wider-than-before, cambered sole allows for smooth turf entry and release.
The forged Titleist 712 irons head is composed of soft 1025 carbon steel and is finished off with modern satin chrome plating. It features a number of qualities the lower handicap player usually looks for, including constant blade length throughout the set, minimal constant offset, and a slim topline. The combination of that narrow topline, along with a rounder profile result in a classic but improved modern appearance.
Titleist CB irons offer a slightly wider and fuller sole that have been developed to have an advanced new trailing edge relief. This high performing sole has a blunted leading edge and cambered bounce surface which gives you a smoother turf entry and release and are great if you are more aggressive through the ground.
The biggest visual change is the chrome satin finish which we think looks great. The sole is a little wider and the trailing edge on the back of the head has a little camber on it, both of which make it a little more playable. It provides increased inertia, forgiveness and a slightly higher ball flight.
The CB 712 irons is a very competent iron, and for most single figure amateurs I would recommend blending in with some of the other Titleist models for a combination of forgiveness and feel.
