Even the best most elite of players sometimes like to have the help of cavity back irons particularly in the lower and mid lofts and they must have the look of blades at address as well as having the feel and sound of the more difficult to hit blades.
The Wilson Staff Model CBs are designed to do just that providing the added forgiveness better players would like to have.
The CBs feature a thin topline head with a slight amount of offset passing the look-at-address test easily. The leading edge of the narrow sole is rounded to lower turf interaction, but the most significant features are the head weighting and stiffening.
Perimeter weighting is enhanced by placement of tungsten (20g) in the toe and Wilson uses what they call a “Tri-Brace Stabilizer” running between the heel, toe and top to stiffen the face.
“Wilson continues to strive to the make the best, most respected irons in the world,” said Jon Pergande Manager of Golf Club Innovation and quoted in the announcement from Wilson. “The Staff Model CB Irons are aesthetically pleasing to the elite player and with the new Tri-Brace stabilizer providing a structural connection between the topline and the central impact mass we have stabilized the topline enhancing the energy transfer to the ball while also providing improved sound and feel .”
According to Pergande, “We listened to and worked closely with our advisory staff and tour professionals to create the Wilson Staff Model CB Irons. The CB Irons combine the best of V6 and Staff Model blade to create our most advanced forged irons, the CB Irons will meet all the needs for the advanced player.”
