Titleist 714 CB Irons
TheSandTrap.com Top Picks
I haven't hit them...but have handled them. To be perfectly honest...they are nearly identical to the 712's...nearly all of the 714's are super similar to the 712's.
As for the CB's in particular...they are a slight cavity backed blade. Not much has or will change in this type of club. They are awesome clubs...
I didn't hit them because they are way above my skill level and I was focusing on the AP irons, but I did take a good look at the CBs. To me the cavity looks so shallow it's hardly worth the effort. Might as well go blades, but I really can't see why anyone would look past the AP2s, Duffner does okay with them. For me; I was very pleasantly surprised by how sweet the AP1s are!
I looked at the specs for the AP2.714 and 714.CB. The AP2 has a degree stronger loft for 6i on up, and a degree more bounce in some places, and has tungsten toe and heel weights.
714.CB has more of a perimeter-weighted design.
How do the two compare on ball flight, and ease of use? It seems like differing head designs may produce pretty much the same result.
(P.S. If I did Titleist irons, it would be the AP1 line).
