CB3 Forged irons from Adams

 Today many manufacturers are making game improvement category irons by forging, a departure from the traditional cast clubheads we have come to associate with such irons. Formerly it was thought the soft feel of forged irons was for the professionals and better amateurs; that cast irons with bigger soles, large back cavities and in general a more complex shape could not provide the same feel.

That’s changed and Adams Golf’s Idea Black CB3 irons are a great example. Forged from 8620 steel the head design is specifically for golfers with the need to have a very forgiving club.

“With the CB3’s we wanted to create a club with great feel and striking looks but also one that would perform well for a wide range of golfers,” said Tim Reed, Vice President of Research and Development. “We accomplished this with the CB3. Its design enhancements will definitely improve performance for the better player and the aspiring golfer as well.”

 CB3s after they come from the forge are triple milled to give precise perimeter weighting and an extremely thin face. Each head also receives a multi-material badge in the back cavity improving both vibration and sound. 

Adams is also pushing for individualized fittings as part of the process and retailers have a fitting kit to change lie angle, length, shaft flex and shaft. Stock shafts are the steel KBS Tour 90 and the graphite Matrix Ozik Program 8.1 though others are available. Street price for the 4-iron through gap wedge in steel is $799.99 and in graphite $999.99.

    Poorly fit clubs can make the ball go too high, too low, to the right or to the left, and/or make you more generally iotnnsiscent. Is it worth saving $100 to be less accurate and less consistent? It’s not to me. I don’t know about where you live, but here you’re only going to get 2 rounds of golf for $100, and in most places you’ll still probably only get 3 rounds or so. So if you skip two or three rounds, the extra cost is covered. And don’t listen to these idiots saying you don’t need fitted if you’re of average height. Two players that are the EXACT same height will often need differently fitted clubs. Different players have different sized hands, different swing speeds, and different setups. So is fitting clubs necessary? Not if you always want to shoot worse than your potential, be perpetually more iotnnsiscent than you should be, and hinder your growth as a player for as long as you own the clubs. And that’s not just regarding top players. Bad players benefit from fitted clubs MORE than top pros. Here’s a cheaper way to get fitted if you want to save some money. Go to a store that sells Ping clubs, and go through their fitting process. It’s free and fairly quick. Get your stats printed out, tell them you’ll be back some other time to buy the clubs, then find a used set (of Pings obviously) with the same or similar setup.
