Adams Golf is introducing the latest offering of its popular Idea franchise with the new Idea Pro Black CB1 irons. Designed for skilled players, the eight forged carbon steel heads with a nickel-chrome plated and black physical vapor deposition (PVD) finish. It might be the best looking set of irons Adams Golf has ever produced.
The company says the traditionally forged 8620 carbon steel head construction provides control, performance and feedback for the lower-handicap golfer. Each head, according to Adams Golf, has a precision milled cavity and precisely located center of gravity to offer longer, more consistent distance with improved accuracy. The set also features milled grooves that comply with 2010 USGA competition requirements while maximizing spin from all playing conditions. Adams Golf says a thin top line and beveled trailing edge reduces turf interaction, delivering the look and feel from a variety of lies that better players expect.
“Originally developed exclusively for our professional staff players like Tom Watson, the overwhelmingly positive comments about the feel and performance of the CB1s from the tour inevitably led us to make this set an integral part of the successful Idea family of irons,” said Chip Brewer, President and CEO of Adams Golf. “This stealth-looking set has already received high marks from golf enthusiasts plugged into the online community so we look forward to bringing the CB1s to low-handicap golfers everywhere who appreciate the control and workability of this forged set of irons.”
The stock shafts for the Idea Pro Black CB1 iron set are the Rifle Project X Flighted steel shaft or the Mitsubishi Rayon Javln FX i95 graphite shaft, available in regular, stiff or extra-stiff flexes. Offered standard in a right-handed 4-GW set configuration, the Idea Pro Black CB1 iron sets begin shipping to golf shops April 15 with a suggested retail price of $899.99 (steel) and $1,099.99 (graphite).
