    I just spit up my oatmeal on that one LOL. You are correct, it's called jacked lofts and longer shafts but you've got me thinking, maybe I should trade my CB57's in on some TM irons, NOT!

    Can anyone compare the cb57 to the cb301? Are they comparable on forgiveness and head shape? I'm thinking about adding a cb301 4 iron. Thanks

    update: practiced with my cb57 6i & 4i today. its soft..... and pure.



    Low penetrating trajectory on the 4i. its beautiful.



    we should have a CB57 gathering and all just hit shots after shots together.

    Funniest post I've read this week! Ahhh... so good to laugh to start your morning.

    I bought PP 9003 this last spring. My fitter didn't have the 57's and I liked the 9003 so much I just went with it. When posters talk about "soft" feel I have found with my 9003 I agree with some of the earlier discussions in this thread, 9003 didn't feel soft, it felt dense and solid on good strikes. I tired out 714 AP2's recently and they felt softer than my 9003's. Could be the shaft but the strike to me felt softer in the AP2's.



    Don't mean to hijack this thread but before I played the 9003 I heard about softness but that hasn't been my experience.

    Seems to me that Miuras always have a sweet spot to the heel side of center. Even the 9003. They feel very pure on great strikes, might be you're just not jiving with them yet from an impact point on the face

    Thought I would give my 2 cents on the CB 57, since I just had a set made and played them for the first time yesterday. Played 36 holes so, plenty of holes to get myself use to.



    I had the set built with the modus 105 and standard everything. The shaft was awesome. Dispersion was tight and felt very smooth. It did feel lighter than the Nippon 1050, I play in my other set though. Mid flight and no ballooning. For me, I got much better numbers with these than the tour 120. I had too much spin with the 120.



    For the irons, they are definitely more forgiving than the 501s and if you came from set of blades, which is my other set. Honestly, if you came from anything that is already somewhat cavity back, the 57s aren't going to be more forgiving. The feeling of hitting the centre of the club is pure joy because of that weight bar. It also acts as a great teaching aid since there is a very discernible difference when you catch one low or high, toe or heel. The feeing isn't the same. As for the look, the top line is a little thicker than my mp4s. I don't particularly find thicker clubs to be a confidence builder, I actually like looking down at a nice blade, so these will take a while to get use to. I found the the 501s, to be more aesthetically pleasing at address than the 57



    All in all, a great club and a great upgrade depending on the set you are coming from. I'm still on the fence with them. The season is going the over soon here so I'm going to keep hacking away with them and will decide if they stay or go before next season.

    Nice write up. I've been playing J40CBs and just got a set of 501CBs off a member here. The top line is noticeably thinner on the 501s and a little shorter blade length. In comparison to the 57s are the 57s really more forgiving since they're even a little shorter in blade length than the 501s? Also, in reading other reviews I heard the top lines and soles of the 57s were about the same as the 501s, but the leading edge of the 57s were a little different. Is that accurate? Is there more offset to the 57s than the 501s?

    57's are superior to the 501 in every way IMO. I played the 501's for over 2 years before going to the CB 57's.



    The 57's have a more appealing shape, sole grind, and thicker top line. They fit perfectly between the 501 and pp9003 SN.

    The 501s have a very sharp leading edge and depending on your swing could dig on on you. The 57 is a shorter blade length but the top line is thicker than the 501s. There is a great review somewhere that compares the 2 and with the mb001 on this forum somewhere.



    I find the 57 more forgiving than the 501 especially in toe hits.



    The 57 has a different sole grind than the 501 which makes turf interaction supposedly better. This is very noticeable when you compare them both. Tomorrow will be my third round with them and today's range session with them was my best as I got more use to them and the shafts.



    As for offset, I can't tell if there is more. According to specs it does have more offset, but you can't tell with the naked eye. I believe the 57s also have less bounce than the 501s

    Another accolade for the CB57 is the precise feedback it offers, forgiveness of a CB, but the feedback of an MB.



    I tested the Mizuno MP5 a few weeks ago, and the feedback was no where on par as the 57's.

    With the grind, they don't play like low bounce. With the 501's and TB's they had a tendency to get stuck (steep) in soft conditions. The mb001 and CB 57 have less bounce than the TB's and 501's but the grind makes all the difference.

    I have been playing a combo set of MB's and CB 57's for over a year... MB - PW,9,8...CB 57 - 7,6,5,4 then a new NEO 3 hybrid (An HB 3 before that)...very easy to hit the MB's if you like blades and are a steady ball striker. I also have the CB 57 PW,9,8 which I put in the bag during the winter for mud golf conditions. I hit them about the same for distance but feel the CB's are easier to hit in the wet sloppy conditions of the PNW....I prefer chipping and pitching with the MB's. To each his own for sure but the combo set is truly sweet and you get a lot of looks at the course. I spent 4 days at Bandon Dunes in October and spent as much time showing the clubs to the staff and other players as I did playing golf image/wink.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' /> ... Okay, maybe not quite, but really did get a lot of attention with the combo set-up. Love them....going to be in the bag for some time to come. image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    I'm I dreaming to think I can go to 57's from Mizuno MP-54's ?



    I'm currently trying to arrange to travel 1000 miles to a fitter later on in the year with getting a set of 57's as the goal.



    Any feed back would be great or suggestions of a more realistic progression from my Mizuno MP-54's

    I personally don't think thats a match that works. The BB's are a completely different set of irons. Both the MB001's and CB 57's have the same leading edge grind, and the irons flow almost seamless on into the scoring irons. I can't recall the turf interaction on the BB's because they were just too less of an iron to look down at for me (0 confidence) and I didn't really give them the time of day that they may deserve or shall I say demand.

    Man, I love them :-)



    Would your feelings remain the same if I told you I was only planning on using a CB57 5 iron and playing 6-P Baby Blade?



    Essentially would that eliminate your concerns of transition into scoring clubs?

    That's up to you, but typically the grind comes in handy on the short irons (when your angle of attack tends to be a bit steeper). Nothing is concrete in golf.



    If the cb57's didn't have the grind, I wouldn't praise them. I was going to go cb1007's with the y grind till I heard talk about the cb57's. I waited most of 2014 in anticipation for the 57's snd they finally delivered.



    They're as playable as ping s55's with looks and feel to follow. They have mid/low bounce that is perfect for those dry conditions and yet the grind helps in the soft conditions.



    Not too many things are perfect (if any) but the cb57's are about as perfect as it's gonna get for the discerning and applicable golfer.

    I'm I dreaming to think I can go to 57's from Mizuno MP-54's ?



    I'm currently trying to arrange to travel 1000 miles to a fitter later on in the year with getting a set of 57's as the goal.



    Any feed back would be great or suggestions of a more realistic progression from my Mizuno MP-54's

    I wish. Now isn't the right time for a 1200 purchase. I saw a set of 4-P go for 650 a month or so before Christmas, if I saw that again, I may bite. But not the set listed. Great looking set and Chip is a great guy.

    You get what you pay for. The set listed at 1200 are in pretty good shape...I can't imagine the set for 650 would be in great shape (unless you don't care...).



    I got a mint set of 57's (from a seller on here) for 1,100 shipped.

    You don't say? ... If you'll notice, I currently play Baby Blades.



    And the 57's I saw go for $650 were mint, 4-P. Obviously, plus shipping.

    I'll echo the positives stressed throughout the thread. Once you find the right shaft and head combo, these are near perfection.

    I have to agree! I loved my modified 501's so much so that I wanted another set for travel so I went with the 57's with the same shafts as my 501's but this time I said "yes" to my fitters question to splineing the shafts and I have to be honest,,,, I'm usually playing these over my 501's

    The sold feel will never get old as I love mine for 2nd year in a row! My builder is carrying PXG now so I had to give them a try, just using the launch monitor. They were definitely longer, but that's cause they are stromger lofts and they don't feel anything like my 57's. I'm long enough with them and feel/accuracy is more important to me. But I did order a PXG driver, 3 wood and hybrid that I am plying and loving!

    I love my CB57s after playing them for a few weeks. Coming from CB202s and recently from Mizuno MP4/MP15. Biggest difference I've experienced is in trajectory. Identical trajectory from 4i to PW. That is, my 4i flies as high as my PW. I love that.




    He would find that really annoying, same flight for all irons...he doesn't want his 4 iron anywhere near as high as his PW.

    I have been lusting after a set of 1957 CB57's since they launched so I jumped at a set on BST. The shafts are a wildcard but the deal was too

    good to pass up on in my opinion. The set is 4-PW with Matrix Program F15 95 Stiff shafts.



    I look forward to playing these and I already know they are not crazy soft like my Endo forged OnOff Kuros

    Hey Guys,



    Thanks for all the input on the clubs, I have put an order for the CB57s. Specs wise I ordered the same as my mizuno set up and altered for the 1 degree flatter lie of the Miura.



    question: ball flight? do you feel the CB57 are a true flight compared to your normal shaft preference or higher or lower. I have a high swing speed and play C taper 130x in my MP25 and have good shot dispersion and spin. HC 4-6. distance and direction are not my issue: ball flight and height control. I play in Australia (hard and windy) and Asia (soft) and I am getting better at adjusting my swing to the varied conditions. I am pretty comfortable with my club spec but will get a review and adjustment of loft, lie once I receive the new clubs. The Trial CB57s i hit come of the face great and good feed back. Fast ball speed and distance similar to MP25s, they had stiff shaft option in them and I will step up to C taper x 130. I would prefer a lower flight compared to the MPs25. 95% of that is technique but confidence in the club that it wont jump off and produce a weak flight takes time. I live in Asia and the shaft options here are limited and support a slow swing speed market.

    Miura Freaks , no feed back on height image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> any thoughts, clubs being built this week, anyone hit CB 57s v MP 25s? My comments would be , much softer impact feel, more confidence than MP 25, doesn't feel as hot of face but actually about the same in distance, spin, flight higher??
