Titleist 755 CB Irons Review

By Eric Cornelison

Specs

The new forged Titleist 755 CB irons are made with 410 stainless steel and have a thinner face premium golfers will like. The 10 g of weight added to the face of the irons redistributes throughout the club, causing a higher moment of inertia (MOI) and increasing stability through the swing. The sole of the irons is made to prevent from digging into the ground during wet conditions, and the bounce angles limit the skip you might get when the ground is firm. The hosel lengths are different from long to short irons, with the long irons placing the weight lower to increase the launch angle while lengthening the hosel of the short irons to help knock down the club and control the distance. The 3-iron through pitching wedge set has a cavity back, and standard length and lie with a Titleist Tour velvet cord grip. Though no longer in production, 755 CB irons are still available on the secondary market. 

Perks

This is an excellent iron for the serious player who likes to work the ball. The 3- and 4-irons launch better than the average long iron, and are more forgiving than expected. The setup is good, and you might get a little more distance, so take them to the driving range first.

 

Sacrifices

A lot of distance is lost on a mishit, so you need to be a good ball striker to hit these consistently. The feel is not as soft as a steel-forged iron, and these nick easier than expect so be careful with them.

 

Bottom Line

This is an excellent set for the low-handicapper or the golfer who is on that low-handicap bubble and needs clubs to improve his game. You should get fitted for this club because it is a ball-striker's club.
