The CB3 irons have a deep cavity along with heel and toe weighting.

Adams says these irons are all about feel and forgiveness. MSRP is $799.99 (eight irons, steel shafts); stock shaft is the KBS 90, which is about 30 grams lighter than the regular KBS Tour.

Forged irons have made a dramatic comeback. Only a few years ago, most irons were made of investment-cast stainless steel. Now we see forged irons, made of soft carbon steel, in the club lineup of every major club manufacturer.

In general, these irons appeal to low-handicap players, although companies such as Adams are making a pitch to golfers of average ability who probably are planning on improvement. readers: We value your input and welcome your comments, but please be respectful in this forum.
