    Those two irons couldn't possibly perform more similarly. The shortest carry from both was within a yard, the longest was within a yard and the averages are identical. This is exactly why I play these types of clubs and not the hollow, thin, fast faced irons. You know exactly what you're going to get with them. I see a combo set in my future.

    As I've played less (thanks to life and its responsibilities), I went from the 712 MBs (my favorite irons ever) to the 718 CBs... I think a move back to MBs are in my future. The 620 blades are majestic. I'm not sure I'd even be that upset on a mishit. Heck, I'll club twirl and get over it immediately.

    I couldn't agree more. The MP18 are the closet thing to the 690s I have hit. Straight butter on both accounts!

    Hate to admit it as a long-time Mizuno blade guy but these look better to me than the MP-20 blade. I like the higher, beefier muscle back. I like the generous leading ending relief. I like the size and the top line. If only these feel half as good as the Mizunos they will make my bag. I think it's funny that the MP-20 copied the 718 mb with half chrome, half satin, and Titleist copies the MP-18 satin with a chrome line under the muscle. Imitation the sincerest form of flattery right? For me it's between Titleist and Mizuno for best blade and while Mizuno has been in the driver's seat for quite a while, these look like Titleist is serious about catching them and giving the blade player exactly what we're looking for--total shot control, especially being able to flight the ball lower with all clubs.

    I just got back from Golf Galaxy and hit the T100, 620 CB and MB. All are really nice irons. I had slightly better dispersion results with the MB than the CB but numbers were almost identical. I definitely hit the T100 the worse but I think that had more to do with starting with them (not warmed completely up) and finishing with them (tired).

    Aesthetically, they all look fantastic from the top. The T100 looked to have a longer blade length but they did a nice job making the top line visually the same across the 3 lines. From a bag appeal standpoint, the CB and MB will be hard to beat. I will refrain from giving an opinion on feel because the MaxFli balls they use are awful. I typically carry my 7 iron 170-175 yards on the course and struggle to get a shot to go 165 on their GC2. The balls are flat out awful.

    Had a fitting at Titleist today. In the end fitter was happy with this setup
    CB 4/5 and MB 6-PW with Project X 6.0 +1/2". Also got the TS3 19* hybrid set at 18* with Hzrdus Smoke
    Lovely consistent numbers time after time, flight and carry exactly where I want it, easy to shape

    Hit the MB and CB at GG last night. Absolutely loved them, considering ordering a combo set of sorts. However, I was spinning both 7-irons at around 8k on Trackman and they were a good 10-15 yards short of my existing 7-iron (MP-18 MB). The guy next to me was about 6'6", swung at 98 mph with 7-iron (mine was ~93mph), and he was topping out around 170 yards with 8k+ spin using P760. Anyone else experiencing this off their mats with maxfli balls or should I be hesitant about ordering?

    Did you hit MP-18 and 620 MB/CB side by side? Then you can easily compare Spin, Launch and Ballspeed. I would be very surprised if the carry distance would be that significant. BTW, target spin would be 7k. Your mentioned spin look high.

    The ball is stupid, so I would compare both on same simulator with Ballspeed, Launch and Spin.

    I did not, but my 7-iron flies 170. I've played enough golf to know the guy next to me was at least a club longer than me. Plus he was hitting a completely different club.. So I'm not sure what to think other than the monitor or situation being off.

    My 716 MB’s will be replaced by the new 620 MB in short order. It was time and these are so pure both in performance and aesthetic.

    716’s were great and if the 620’s weren’t this good, I may have found a new set of 716’s but I’ll move on into the 620’s happily!

    Anyone get better look at the short irons 8-pw
    That topline and the way it bulges looks weird. I know it’s all preference but if you don’t like how the short irons look, it’s hard to get comfortable with them

    Received my preorder in today. I can’t see much difference in the top line in light. In fact I think the 8-pw look smaller than ever. The biggest difference is coming from the 716 MB’s to these is how the actual face look on the 5 and 6. They APPEAR to have more loft and a taller face, but narrower face heel to toe. However when I hold them side by side it looks like there is no difference. Also you can notice less offset for sure, which is great IMO. For me they seem to launch higher with less spin. Definitely a different flight for me, which is good because my long irons in the past didn’t give me good gapping due to too much spin. Feel is the exact same IMO. Can’t speak to the sole or turf interaction because I haven’t hit enough. Over all though, they look great and the slight changes in appearances is nothing that I’m sure anyone’s eyes wouldn’t adjust to with a few range sessions or rounds. With that being said, after seeing the difference in offset of these, it’s very hard not to notice how much offset my other irons have when picking up a 716 now. If you’re someone like myself who likes everything about the previous MB’s and just want a classic looking club and some fresh grooves, then look no further.

    Something wrong with your strike or the tech. I was consistently seeing 6600rpm with the 7i in 620mb. Distance right where i wanted it

    Perfect, good to know. Strike was fine so I'm assuming something with the Maxfli balls or mats or both.

    I hit the 620 MBs last night and now am considering ordering them. I, admittedly, love Titleist blades. I currently game the 680s and, before that, had the 716 MBs. Less offset is the main difference I noticed from both the 716 and 680s (only hit the 7 iron, so not sure what the "progressive blade length" looked like in the longer irons). I could be crazy, but I thought these felt slightly softer than the 716s, and I was hitting them both with the same 2019 Pro V1. I didn't notice any increased spin compared to my other irons; in fact, they seemed a little lower, given that the 620 MB 7 iron was 1 degree weaker than my 680 and 716 MBs, and the 620 I hit was with a $-Taper 120s, versus the lower-spinning X7s in the 680s and X100s in my 716s.

    My only complaint is that they seem pricey to me, especially when looking at non-stock shafts (DG X7s and $ Tapers), vs the MP 20s.

    Driver: TS4 9.5 - Hzrdus Smoke Green 70TX
