Titleist Introduces New 716 CB and MB Irons for Tour-Proven Shotmaking and Solid Forged Feel

FAIRHAVEN, Mass.  – New Titleist 716 CB and MB irons advance the heritage of the PGA Tour’s most trusted blade irons through innovative design and engineering, and a development process driven by feedback from the best ball strikers in the game.

The new 716 CB is a modern cavity blade engineered with industry-leading amounts of high density tungsten for tour-proven shotmaking with added forgiveness. The new 716 MB, inspired and validated by the world’s best shotmakers, is a pure muscle back blade with modern refinements that provides maximum shot control.

“In order to make the best iron product line in the world, you need to satisfy the best players in the world. And many of the world’s best prefer a cavity back or muscle back blade for control and feel,” said Chris McGinley, Vice President, Titleist Golf Club Marketing. “CB and MB have been among the most played models on the PGA Tour for years, so it’s critical that our R&D team works together with players to deliver a product that performs better and gives them more confidence.”

The most high-tech cavity blades in the game, new Titleist 716 CB irons use extreme high density tungsten weighting to position the center of gravity (CG) low and perfectly aligned at impact for more speed with tour-proven trajectory and control. An innovative co-forged construction places high density tungsten low and on the perimeter for added forgiveness in its tour-proven profile.

“The technology we’ve added to 716 CB puts this iron in a class by itself in terms of MOI and forgiveness, and makes it clearly stand out among traditional blade forgings,” McGinley said. “The new co-forged construction and addition of high density tungsten weighting gives CB an added kick with unprecedented forgiveness in a traditional blade size.”
