    I hit both of them and too me there wasn't that much forgiveness in either of them. What are you trying to accomplish?

    If you're looking for a little more forgivness but want the feel then why not try the ap2

    i currently play the the 712 ap2 and getting ready to replace them

    I would wait until the new 718 AP2 range and try them at a Titleist Thursday. Then compare them with the MB/CB to see what level of forgiveness you want

    I'm currently playing the 716 CB. It's a great irons, to me it feels more solid than tha AP2. I leave the MB to the pro.

    I play the 716 MB's (PW-5i). Forgiving, no. Euphoric, yes - when you hit them pure. The CB's are the same but will be slightly more forgiving on slight off centered hits (with the perimeter and tungsten weighting) - a 5 yard dispersion versus a 10 yard dispersion on the MBs. Hit either on the toe or thin, and you might as well have kicked the ball with your bare feet (it would feel less painful too).

    I use the blades because I’m an excellent ball striker & traditionalist. I don’t want to be rewarded for slight mis-hits. I’m not a pro-golfer, so I don’t stress about how much money a 10 yard dispersion will cost me. I want to know that the ball landed inside 10 feet of the hole because I put a great swing and strike on the ball, not because of some so-called “forgiving technology” in my club. If the ball lands 30 feet from the hole due to a slight mis-hit, so be it. That's why chipping and putting is part of the game too. If you are not a great ball striker & don't care to be, then these are not for you.

    I have them both in the bag. The CB in the 5 & 6 and the MB in the 7, 8 ,9 and PW. The CB is a bit more forgiving than the MB, that is why I have it for the longer irons.

    Your best bet is to get properly fitted. It doesn't matter how your clubs look, but how well you can hit them.

    I use MB's and also have a set of CB's. I found the shafts play a major role in how the club performs. I love the feel from the MB's that's why they are in the bag. Granted, a mis-shot will be punished but the good ones will be rewarded by a wonderful feel. The CB's are a tad more forgiving. If I were you, I'd book a Titleist day and try both sets with the same shafts if possible. Very best of luck with your research and enjoy the process!!!

    The CB's are the more forgiving of the two. It is one of the reason I play it. I love my 716 CB- it's looks, its feel, and the way I'm able to play it- I think it's a good fit for me.

    Good luck with your fitting- would like to hear more about your decision outcome.
