Following up on the recent announcement of the new 712 series AP1 and AP2 irons for recreational players Titleist is coming out with new irons for better players the 712 series MB (forged muscle back) and CB (forged cavity back). They have been out on thePGATour for several months starting at the AT&T National in June with wins including this past weekend; Brad Faxon on the Champions Tour and Bryce Molder on thePGATour.
“When we started formulating plans for the new MB and CB designs, we knew that the project would be a reinterpretation, not a complete reinvention,” said Steve Pelisek, General Manager Titleist Golf Clubs. “The original MB and CB models were so well received on Tour, as well as in the marketplace, that we knew we had succeeded in delivering the core design fundamentals that resonate with the traditional blade player. We did identify through our work with the world’s best players, however, some areas where we could make improvements, which we incorporated in the new models. The new MB and CB still embody those key design elements that made the first generation so well accepted.”
The new MB and CB irons have the classic looks and shot-shaping characteristics of the previous models updated with a new design of the back, a faceted surface nicknamed “the dog bone.” It puts more mass behind the center of the iron face from since the design is larger in the heel and toe, narrowing behind the impact area.
Both will be available November 18 and carry a MSRP of $140 per club/steel and $165/graphite.WHAT'S YOUR REACTION?
