Cleveland CG1 Tour Irons

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

If you are under the assumption that blades cannot be forgiving, think again.  The new Cleveland CG1 Tour Irons are the most forgiving blade Cleveland has ever produced.  The CG1 Tours are designed for consistent ball striking offering a level of forgiveness that has yet to be seen from a blade design.  These irons feature a split cavity design in the long and mid irons for added versatility and forgiveness however they still maintain that classic look from address.  The short irons are pure blades with a higher center of gravity for tighter distance control and increased feel in the scoring zone.  In an effort to combat the new Groove Rule put in place by the USGA, the CG1 Tour irons feature Cleveland’s patented laser milled Tour Zip Grooves.  For those unfamiliar with Cleveland’s Zip grooves, each face features four perfectly calibrated texture lines milled between each groove that exactly match the conforming face roughness limit. This technology maximizes the ball-to-face friction level giving golfers a tremendous amount of spin on approach shots.  Order your set of Cleveland CG1 Tour Irons today and receive FREE UPS Ground Shipping anywhere in the lower 48!!!

Cleveland CG16 Tour Irons

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

So far, Cleveland’s new product line for 2011 has been a bit lackluster with the exception of the Mashie Hybrid as well as the CG16 irons and wedges.  Last week we were lucky enough to get our hands on the new Cleveland CG16 Tour irons and I walked away fairly impressed.  As usual, the irons are not earth shatteringly different than the previous models, but the CG16 does look and feel more refined.  This player’s set is designed for the golfer who demands solid feel, accuracy, and workability without sacrificing too much forgiveness.  After a few swings in the net, it was evident that the CG16 encompasses all of these attributes.  The cavity is quite modest however it is undercut which improves ball speed, distance on mis-hits, and accuracy.   The tour-inspired shape promotes confidence at address with its progressive offset and cog location, thin top-line, and dark glare-free finish.  As good as this club may appear and perform, my only complaint is that it is not forged.  For some reason (most likely cost), Cleveland has steered away from making forged clubs and I think they are doing themselves a dis-service.  The games best players want the best, and let’s face it, forged irons simply feel better!  In an increasingly competitive market, Cleveland needs to show up to the gunfight with a little more than a pocket knife.  On the other hand, the Cg16 is still a great performing iron and to Cleveland’s credit, their castings are quite good.  The CG16 Tour irons will be available for shipment mid-February.
