Help with new iron purchase - MB or CB

Chris B

CB 712 w/ x100

97mph ave.
15-17* Launch

Dist

205 ave range balls

208-212 ave with pro v1x

Dispersion is good with the CB's

Should I be thinking CB's or MB's - whats the biggest different between the CB's and MB's, is it launch.  Im told the forgiveness is relative comparing each one.  The CB really just affords more launch vs horizonal forgivenss across the face.   The sweet spot, is it that murch larger CB vs the MB????

What iron should I be looking at? Do I step up to the MB's

Thanks

    Chris, 

    Both are great irons for being able to work the ball, but you will get slightly more forgiveness from the 712 CBs.  One thing to keep in mind is your turf interaction.  Players who tend to be more aggressive through the turf may lean towards the CB since the slightly wider sole helps.  Some players even use aesthetics as a deciding factor.  Maybe leaning towards the  712 MB for a slimmer head profile.  The sweet spot for both iron models is very comparable, but again the 712 CB will play slightly more forgiving.

    Chris do what I did. Titleist will let you order your set anyway you want. I went p-6 in mb and 5-3 in cb. Best of both worlds and I couldn't be happier. Wether it's the cb or the mb you have to be a good ball striker to get the most out of em and if you are, a combo set of cb mb will be the best set of irons you have ever had in the bag.

    Thats what I did. I got 3-7 CB's and now I want to order the 6&7 in MB's. I am waiting to see if I can order them with the same serial number.

    I couldn't agree more I ordered the set originally 3cb 4-mb and after hitting the 3 iron and loving the extra forgiveness I ordered the 4,5 cb and love them I would definitely look at a combo set hit both like the my,cb 5,6,7 and then decide which ones you want. Why make it harder than it Already is.

    I had the same dilemma last season and ended up going with the CBs for the better turf interaction. I am pretty agressive through the ball and I felt that the sole on the CBs didn't dig quite as much. I thought that performance wise they were pretty close, a slightly higher flight with the CBs, but the feel and forgiveness were similar. Overall I couldn't be happier. The design of the short irons is great too so I didn't end up doing the mixed set. Sometimes I wish I did, only because the MBs are just so beautiful.

    Cameron, This is great information. A little down the line the idea of a mixed set of cb's and mb's came up. Question to you, when I moved to mb's back when, it seemed I lost about 5-7 yards. Was that mishitting the ball or is there going to be a slight difference in distance between the two?

    Chase, I know for sure that Cameron will know and be more knowledge than me, but it might be worth checking the lofts on the CB's vs the MB's. I've figured out for my game that 1 degree of loft either weak or strong equals exactly 5-7 yards of carry for me. Just food for thought but I'm sure Cameron will have a better answer.

    Do a custom combo/blended set, with the CB for 4-6 and MB in your 7-PW.  This way, you'll get the best of both worlds.  They really do blend well together.  I don't have any problem with distance gaps between the 6 & 7, and the feel is fantastic.  I ordered mine this way from the factory, with identical specs throughout.
