    Decent golfer here... perplexed at why more tour pros don’t play the CB irons. I made the switch from AP2 712s this spring. Loving the CBs. My misses are the same... my pure swings are BETTER.

    What am I missing?

    The fitters put them into other clubs, could be the looks.. But my guess is the AP2 are a lot more forgiving.

    I have new set of 718 CB's. I did not try the AP 2, MB. I came from playing forged miz blades. It might be the club head feel. The Cb's face insert is a little harder than forged 1025 carbon steel. I switched to get a more forgiving club in the medium & long irons plus the size & lofts are the same as blades.

    Also am playing the 718cbs and love them. The feel is amazing. Distance are more true than ever, just know they deliver and Also the first set of irons I can play and also play my woods correctly. Indeed weird to not see them being played as much on tour maybe some mb players playing them in higher clubs but not seen much of them.

    Think there is a big “forgiveness” bias towards these clubs. Almost all friends and family are scared to hit them and stick with more forgiving clubs but the few that try them are instantly in love with them and directly start questioning the forgiving aspect and Some even mentioning they are as or even more forgiving than their own “more forgiving clubs”.

    All in all amazing clubs, great sound, feel, and stunning looks and one of those clubs that you just can’t stop hitting!

    I have been wondering the same thing. The CB’s have a classic look and I’m sure they are very workable. If you have a single digit handicap and are also a traditionalist, the CB’s would seem to be the perfect irons. To those of you who have them in the bag, what shaft are you playing ?

    I went with the KBS 90 in 3-PW. Absolutely love them!

    I have project x lz in my 718cb's. Wish the dynamic gold 120's was offered. The kick in the project x feels a little klunky compared to dynamic gold smooth release. It performs well it is just a feel thing for myself.
