The Verdict: The Tour B X-CB is an effective mix of classic looks and contemporary technology. The irons, forged from 1020 carbon steel, use a weight pad behind the face to enhance feel. They also offer more aggressive lofts for the category (the 6-iron is 28 degrees, about 2 degrees stronger than traditional) and a wider sole for forgiveness through the turf. The 10 no-upcharge shaft upgrades are a terrific bonus to a player group that pays attention to such things.
Loft: 7-iron: 32 degrees; PW: 46 degrees
