    Looks like zero or near zero offset on the MBs. They look pretty nice to me.

    Also, whilst these aren't my favourite-looking Titleist CB, I do think they make some purdy cavity backs. Probably like the 712 or 714s the best, looks wise, but these are nice enough.

    Always been a fan of the CB's. After seeing these... I still am.

    Good job on removing the "tungsten" writing on the cavity of the CB's...I'm sure it's still there in the long irons, but no need to advertise it on the club itself.

    Also, very minimal visible changes otherwise...slight repositioning of CG...but I'm sure they are following the "if it isn't broke, don't fit it" mentality.

    MB's seem to have a slightly thinner topline and more mass in the muscle pad.

    All in all, from the pics...I like the changes.

    The CBs no longer have "tungsten" written on them. Did they give up on the co-forging process?

    looks good, I thought 716 mb had a little too much offset but I still really liked them. Looks like these have less offset. These new pictures look better than previous of ap2 etc
  • From_Parts_UnknownFrom_Parts_Unknown Members Posts: 1,836 ✭✭
    Can we get a little tungsten? I agree with others that it doesn't need to be written. I like how Cobra shows the plug in the toe. That's good enough for me. Hopefully they kept the tungsten in the long irons, and maybe even added it to the short irons. While we are at it, give the MBs some tungsten as well. Let's be like Oprah with the tungsten. Everyone gets some.

    CBs look good, finish inside the cavity is different? Those MBs are amazing. Will be tough to decide what set make up I go with.

    I have a little 9-iron in my pants right now looking at those MB's
  • BottleCapBottleCap Members Posts: 1,354 ✭✭
    It looks like the MBs are chrome in the muscle back area and satin in the upper part. I don't know, i'm going to have to see it in person.

    Say you decided to combo the MBs with a bigger 3 and 4 iron, which would you guys do? AP2?

    Those MB's are super slick, it looks like the top half on the back is brushed and the muscle pad is chrome. Am I seeing that right?

    I agree, the 718 CB the lines just look weird because the perimeter frame is so thin which makes the cavity seem huge and out of proportion.

    Those CB's look nice and simple on the back. Wonder what the difference is between the last model and these on the CB's?

    I'm surprised to see they don't have the tungsten label, since the 716 CBs with tungsten were so popular.

    Those MB's look like Mr. 710 & Mrs. 712 decided to have a little baby together, and Dr. Mizuno oversaw the operation of the toe corner radius. These look great!

    This is just cruel and unusual punishment.. I need a set of irons immediately, and I want the 716CBs. I can't wait until November for the 718CBs! AGH!

    Besides my overall confusion by the AP3, the AP2, CBs, and MBs look brilliant.
