Cleveland CG7 Black Pearl Irons – First Glance
Just in time for the 2010 Masters, once again Cleveland Golf has been kind enough to help me satiate my addiction to golf by sending me a set of the new Cleveland CG7 Black Pearl Irons to play with and review.
There’s nothing better than coming home from a long day at the office to find a long rectangular box waiting for you. There’s not many things it could be, and last you checked, you hadn’t ordered any Christmas wrapping paper this year… 🙂
The Cleveland CG7 Black Pearl Irons feature the soon to be famous Zip Grooves found on the Golf Digest’s gold rated Cleveland CG15 Wedges. This breakthrough technology features consistent milling of each groove to maximum conforming dimensions. The absolute integrity of these grooves is maintained by the application of a proprietary coating to each groove for protection during the face sandblasting process. The resulting Zip Grooves are pristine, shiny and Cleveland Golf’s biggest, most precisely milled grooves ever.
The CG7 360° Gelback Technology within each club is a one piece injection molded lightweight visco-elastic insert that covers the entire perimeter of the cavity and the base of the . This insert provides vibration dampening across the entire face for superior feel, even on off center hits.
The Cleveland CG7 Black Pearl Irons have dynamic microcavity technology which decrease in length from the long irons to the short irons to optimize the CG location for each head. This technology allows movement of discretionary weight lower and deeper for increased distance, ball speed and accuracy. This is similar to what they did in the Cleveland Launcher DST Driver where they moved nine grams of weight from the clubface and put repositioned it low and deep into clubhead to create a deeper center of gravity for higher MOI and reduced side spin on drives.
Think it’s some new innovation that Cleveland Golf came up with and is now incorporating it into their new clubs?
Lastly the new sticks feature heel to toe muscle weighting which has a 6% higher MOI than traditional irons for increased forgiveness on off center hits and a lower and deeper CG location for higher trajectory and more distance.
The Cleveland CG7 Black Pearl Irons are essentially the same as the original CG7 Irons, but with a sexy upgrade. 🙂
These clubs are amazing looking and I cannot wait to hit them on the golf course tomorrow!
I have to say though, I am pretty conflicted, I’ve been using the 2009 TaylorMade Burner Irons for about a year now, and those are some amazing clubs that have treated me well. I’m hoping they won’t be too jealous and vengeful for me test driving another set of irons, especially a set as beautiful as these! 🙂
Stay tuned for the full review.
