The Verdict: The strong lofts push the boundaries of decency (a 38-degree pitching wedge?), but the CB 701 iron really is geared for the player looking for something more appealing in terms of sound and feel. By filling the cavity with a graphite damping material and adding an 11-gram tungsten weight under it, there’s a reduction in unwanted vibrations. The lower and deeper center of gravity provides good height.
Loft: 7-iron: 26 degrees; PW: 38 degrees
