Adams Golf CB2 irons

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hey guys,

 

I just wanted to express how happy I am with my new purchase of the Adams CB2 forged irons. I got them about two weeks ago, and Im in love with them!!! These are the sickest and best feeling clubs ive ever played. Adams has really broken the mold on these clubs. The forged iron feel on these cubs is amazing! I really feel like I can feel the ball being compressed with these clubs, and if you can believe it, I think ive picked up about 10 yards distance with these clubs. Paired with some great lessons of course...

About 2 months ago I bought the new Taylormade R9 TP irons. I hit them a few times in the store before ordering them, and I thought I liked them, but once I got them out on the course I didn't like them. The feel was plain and felt very "solid" for lack of a better term. I felt as if I was striking a rock every time I hit the ball with them. I had liked the Adams clubs before, but I went Taylormade for some reason, even though ive always been against their over hyped products.

As ive matured as a golfer I have stopped going for the hype and what the magazines say are the best. Instead Im going for feel and what I hit the best. And now my bag is a mixture of clubs and brands rather than what matches my hat.

This new set of Adams CB2 irons are fantastic, and Im playing better than I ever have before.

If I wasn't gaming my clubs I would be using those Adams CB 2 irons or even the CB 1's.. I hit them at my Golfsmith and really liked the feel I was getting from them.

 

IMHO, forged is the way to go because it is the best feeling.

I absolutely LOVE my irons and won't be switching, not even upgrading to the new Nike Pro Combo Forged irons because I just didn't like the way they felt compared to mine. Once you hit a club and it feels like its the "one" you have to go with it.

 

Glad that you went with what YOU feel is better for you and its all about how things feel to you before you buy them. Congrats on your purchase!

How does the black finish hold up?

Pretty sure the feeling is more due to the shafts combined with the weighting of the club head. I've tried the CB2's only at GG and they spew out some ridiculously long #'s comparatively. Stronger loft and I think .25" longer shaft length with a lighter shaft is what caused the distance gain from what I believe. Wish I could game a CB2 on the course but no one I know even games Adams irons. yucky.gif

I play with the Adams A4s, which were the predecessor to the CB2.  I picked up the CB2 4 iron with a DG SL shaft to replace the hybrid in the A4 set.  Very nice clubs.  They feel the same as the A4s to me, which I like. Glad you like them as well.  I'm also happy that Adams kept the A4 forged idea going.  It is a more forgiving forged iron with a little lower center of gravity for a higher launch.

 

Have fun with them.

So far so good. Im trying really hard to take great care of these because of the black finish. And its really hard to remember not to grab my wire brush to clean them though. Haha, I dont want to prematurely rub the finish off. However the black finish is great for checking your impact spot on the face. The ball seems to leave a mark when you hit it. It rubs right off, of course, but its actually kind of nice to be able to check and make sure Im hitting it off the middle of the club face.

I actually considered buying some A4's, and I almost pulled the trigger on them, but when I found out I could get a brand new set of CB2's (the Adams area rep plays at my club) for less than the price of some used A4's I couldn't resist!

 

Im probably going to buy some A7 hybrids next... I didn't like the "pro black" hybrids unfortunately.

And for all you guys wanting to "game" one, try what I did... Go to your local golf shop and see if they have demos for sale. I did this and it really helped out. I just bought 6 different 6 irons from the clubs I thought I was interested in, and every time I played I would change one out to see how it did. I also took them all to the range a few times to see how they felt, ball flight, and distance. Thats really how I decided on the Adams club. All the Adams clubs (A4's, A7's, CB1&2's) I tried were nice, but only one felt like magic for me.

I'm looking at a deal online for a set of new CB2's with a free hybrid for $639. I've swung these a few times on a simulator and wasn't moved one way or the other (maybe because of the blister on my thumb I had from a previous day of demo'ing). I've heard great things about these clubs but I've also been able to demo the JPX 800 Pro's and found them to be pretty nice.

 

I'm going to go in to the store to test the hell out of these two clubs but I wanted to try to get some input from people that have used them. 

 

I have till the end of tomorrow to decide on these bad boys.. otherwise it's just waiting until the next holiday sale.. haha

 

Thanks.

It's not, I got about 150 rounds on them and the wedges are completely gone but oh well, they should have used the same process as Cleveland.
