PLANO, Texas – June 12, 2012 – By combining incredible looks and feel with a multi-material construction to provide forgiveness never before seen in a players iron, Adams Golf has raised the bar for the future of the players iron category with the introduction of the Idea CMB irons.
“With the CMBs we have created an iron that appeals to the best players in the world, but also has technology to make them playable for a wide range of players,” said Tim Reed, VP of R&D for Adams Golf. “The look and feel of the CMB irons meets the demands of tour players and low handicap amateurs, but the unique tungsten weighting in each iron makes them great for aspiring players as well.”
Everything to Everybody
The first thing players will notice about the Idea CMB irons is the impressive look of the Nickel Chrome Satin finish, followed closely by the exceptional feel provided from the forged 1025 carbon steel. Just like a finely tuned sports car, the CMBs look and feel great, but the strength is what is underneath the hood. Each iron has a unique tungsten weighting low in the toe to have the center of gravity precisely centered in the scorelines to further enhance the feel and produce minimal twisting at impact. This technological addition to a players iron makes the CMB irons perfect for tour players as well as skilled amateurs.
“The Idea CMB irons are the best irons I have found for me,” said Paul Haley II, No. 1 on the Nationwide Tour money list and winner of the 2012 Chile Classic. “I had been playing a split set of Idea MB2’s in the short irons and Idea Pro a12 irons in the long irons, but with the CMB irons, I am able to get an iron that looks and performs like a blade while still providing the playability of a cavity back.”
Stock Offerings and Fitting Options
The Idea CMB Irons will be offered with exceptional premium shafts and grips: KBS C-Taper (steel) or the Matrix Ozik Program 8.1 (graphite) as the stock shaft options, and the new Golf Pride New Decade MultiCompound White Out. Retailers will also have a CMB Fitting Kit to allow them to help consumers get a properly fit set of CMB irons.
Models, Pricing and Availability
