Q & A
The 714 CB irons proved to be a popular product for Titleist, which has revamped that successful design by incorporating more playability and distance in the 716 CB. Those changes have been well-received, as the 716 CB has been a hit with Titleist’s touring professionals. This is a true players iron in every sense, which can be seen easily at address in the form of thin toplines, compact blade shapes, and minimal offset. The forged construction of the 716 CB irons also produces incredibly soft feel and a crisp, muted sound at impact. That said, this is an iron that’s now generating more in the way of distance and forgiveness. High-density tungsten weighting has been used to create a low CG that’s positioned directly behind the optimal impact point to generate faster ball speeds, and it has also been utilized low and along the perimeter of the clubhead to increase MOI for improved forgiveness on mis-hits. Also of note, pre-worn leading edges improve turf interaction for more consistent contact, and a CG progression enables players to easily control their ball flight and trajectory. True Temper Dynamic Gold is the stock shaft for the 716 CB irons, with additional options also available at no upcharge.

Lower-handicap golfers who value feel, control, and workability in an iron. Yes, the 716 CB irons are more forgiving and provide increased distance compared to their predecessors, but this is still a players club all the way and a design that was intended for control. The improved playability of the 716 CB could make it a candidate for mid-handicappers whose games are trending in the right direction, but the AP2 should also be a consideration for that player.

Creates a low center of gravity aligned with the desired impact point for faster ball speeds and is also positioned along of the perimeter of the club to increase MOI.

“I felt like my misses were a lot more narrow with the CB. I felt like I was more confident looking down at it. I felt like i could control it a little bit more. I could definitely see myself playing them.”

“I hit one ball with the 716 CB and I could already feel the difference. It’s very significant. There was much more of a pop in comparison to the 714s. It felt a lot better coming off the face. I could feel more speed. As a low-handicapper, I like that. Overall, I loved that 716 CB.”
