    Still love mine after about 12 months use. No plans to change. Tried PXG 0311t for a fortnight but back to cb57 again now. They are just so consistent and rewarding. No gripes at all

    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.

    Yep, and I've seen these in hand. If I didn't have my eye on some other items I would of bought them for myself.




    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.




    Jeff - what iron set do you have in the bag now?

    Got mine today. Took them straight to the range and found them to be the most consistent irons (especially distances) that I have ever played. So pumped about these!

    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??

    Thanks Rookie, I am coming from C taperX - MP25 to CB 57, I also expect to loose a 1/2 club difference in distance but maybe pick up a little spin. I was on the fence of going back to C taper S+ but stuck with the X.

    Do you use the Modus 3 120x right through to wedges?

    I recently picked up a combo set of 501 and mb 001. 4-6 in the 501's. I did not expect to like the 501's much from what I've read since they were released, but after playing them the opposite was the case. The shape of the long and mid irons are just about perfect to my eye. Set up beautifully and the feel and ballflight I just love. Did not find them hard to hit at all. On the other hand the jury is still out on the 001's. Didn't take to them near as much.

    I'd argue that the mb001 may be just as or more so forgiving than the 501s. I sure do miss my black boron 501s though; someone got a deal!

    I'd love to find 7-pw in the 501's to complete my set but I don't think that is going to happen without having to shell out some big bucks. image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    Thanks Redpro....another year has passed by and I have "Parked" my CB 57's in favor of a set of the PP 9005 G's....had 6 age or sub-age rounds with them so far this year image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> Will be 71 in a few months and hope to keep the trend alive. The 57's were great but all I can say about the 9005 G's is "Longer, higher, straighter".. about a club and a half longer than the 57's and a higher trajectory image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    That's great news to hear, but I'm sure the distance is due to the 3* loft difference compared to the cb57, unless you have them bent to similar lofts.

    Well said - and that's why I need to remember whether I have my OnOff Kuro or CB-57 in bag that day as i pull club out, lol.

    There is no doubt the added distance is partly due to stronger lofts...but my 57's are tweaked up 2* so they should be closer than they are....Good example.... In normal conditions my CB 57 8 iron is my stock 145 yd club....the PP 9005G is an easy 155 yds and as far as 160 if I jump on it..... BUT the 9005G hits the ball higher at the same time... BTW both sets have the same shafts (Aerotech i80 "R:") Longer carry with higher trajectory IS a GOOD THING!!

    My closest golfing friend also has a set of 9005G's having parked his PP 9003's (Also same shafts both sets) and he too has picked up about a club more distance with higher trajectory image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />



    Not wanting to turn a CB 57 review thread into a 9005G rant....At my age any club that gives me some of my lost distance back is more than welcome.... BTW I still play and love my 57's on occasion.... But the 9005G's are now my go to set and have rewarded me with some great scores...during August, after having them for only a few weeks I had my best round of the year.., 68 (4 under) Good ball striking and good putting is a great combination image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    I thinks it's time to open a thread reviewing these 9005G of yours.

    What did increasing the lofts on the 57's do to the bounce angle on the sole? Did it affect your strike? Have heard that the 57's sole is great in both firm and medium to soft turf conditions. I just obtain a set and plan on getting either Recoil F3 95's or Nippon 950GH in them, both in R-flex. Six iron plays at 37.25". Hope the swing weights come out D1 or less. Also see the head weights are "heavier" than others. Will probably have to visit nearest Miura dealer to consult.

    Just through PW. I think the CB57's have a lower trajectory anyway, so with the 120X the shorter irons now have a really low trajectory and don't jump off the face like expected....could be user error.

    Bumping the lofts 2* reduced the bounce slightly...no issues with the turf action. I was coming from PP 9003 SN's before the CB 57's and wanted the approx. same loft profiles....it worked very well image/wink.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />

    We build a lot of CB 57's with Recoil and NS Pro shafts... if the shaft weight is under 100 grams we usually (Unless specified by customer) go with the set based off a 38" 5 iron which gives you a 37.5" 6 iron.... Swing weights come out right around D-2

    I am sure you will love your 57's...sweet clubs for sure.

    Bumping the lofts 2* reduced the bounce slightly...no issues with the turf action. I was coming from PP 9003 SN's before the CB 57's and wanted the approx. same loft profiles....it worked very well image/wink.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />

    We build a lot of CB 57's with Recoil and NS Pro shafts... if the shaft weight is under 100 grams we usually (Unless specified by customer) go with the set based off a 38" 5 iron which gives you a 37.5" 6 iron.... Swing weights come out right around D-2

    I am sure you will love your 57's...sweet clubs for sure.




    And, you'll need to post a video of the swing that you shoot your age with so I can copy it for a few years !! image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    I have a set of Small "Baby" Blades but, I am considering bagging a set of the CB57's so I don't wear out my "Baby's". Has anyone played them in the Black Boron finish? I am curious about how the finish holds up? And, can they be refinished if or when they wear?

    Definitely considering a set of these irons. Can anyone give a long-term review of them?




    I've had the lust for CB57's for a long time and finally bought them about a year ago. I wanted ultra feel and buttery soft response. I must say that I was disappointed when I absolutely nutted the ball, it felt more like a muted/ click response. I wanted silk in my hands when I hit it right, and it just didn't work out that way (for me). Turf interaction was pretty good.



    I'm currently gaming the Bridgestone J15 MB's. Butter soft, and high launching with my D.G. X100's in them (I have a steep angle of attack).

    Yep, and I've seen these in hand. If I didn't have my eye on some other items I would of bought them for myself.




    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.




    Jeff - what iron set do you have in the bag now?

    Stan,



    I'm currently gaming the Bridgestone J 15 MB's 5-pw, (Srixon U65- 4i). Soft as melted butter in your hands when you hit them right, and are plenty forgiving for a true blade...



    I'm lost on my wedges right now. I have the Vokeys, but I want a Forged wedge...If I have to pay $300-$400 for a Miura Wedge, I may just go 20 min. down the street straight to PXG and get custom fit for 2 (thats all I can afford right now). LOL

    Yea, “butter” is NOT a Miura feel. Miura is a SOLID, ball compressing, pure feeling ‘click’. I actually feel that I get better feedback from my Miura Small “Baby” Blades than I ever did with a “buttery” feeling iron. I know when and where I miss when I miss.
