"Throughout our ongoing research in irons, it became very clear that there exists a community within the better player market that requires the simple design and traditional feel and responsiveness of a classic forged iron," said Steve Pelisek, General Manager Titleist golf clearance.
Titleist CB 712 Irons are classic muscle back forged irons that deliver the looks,feel and performance highly-skilled players demand.Forged from 1025 carbon steel with bright chrome plating,CB irons feature constant blade lengths,minimal progressive offset and a thin topline for superior shotmaking.
I tested the Titleist CB 712 in a Dynamic Gold S300 shaft. The irons perform great for a players iron. The Titleist CB’s are extremely workable yet still deliver a consistent ball flight for a repetitive swing. They will probably not allow you to work and control the ball the way these do. Knock down shots felt great and provide the ability to really alter ball trajectory. The clubs performed exceptionally well, but I have the game to play them. For anyone reading this review, be sure to think long and hard if these clubs are the solution to your game woes
With the Titleist CB 712 Forged Iron, you instantly know where you strike the ball on the clubface. Shots struck in the sweet spot feel awesome while off-center hits feel a little clunky. I was actually surprised how forgiving the TaylorMade CB Irons performed on off center hits, considering they’re not built with heavy heel and toe weights. The standard swing weight is D2, however, the weighting of the CB’s make it very easy to feel where the club is throughout your entire swing. Really loved swinging these irons.
Many golfers will agree these irons look awesome, only a very small percentage of the golfing population will actually be able to hit them. If your swing is anything but consistent, stay well clear of these irons, the Titleist MB 712 Irons is right for you. These irons are ideal for a player who prefers to control the distance, direction and trajectory of the golf ball.
