2 years in the making, you may have seen its first iteration known as the 2021 Handmade Limited iron which was produced using traditional heavier zippo forgings and pressed grooves. After tens of thousands of balls hit and many tester’s feedback the final retail release as seen here is much improved.
The new KK CB’s intended shape and part-way of gravity locations have been refined to specific heights and depths in each number club. Various top-rated forged irons from the other top brands were evaluated to isolate what aspects of the diamond and performance worked and just as important what nature did not.
The end result is what KYOEI plans to be in their product line up for increasingly than a few seasons, Yes folks it’s that good and as someone who has played every KYOEI iron including the Limited handmade’s that these were based on, I must say the trademark has released an outstanding new line wideness the board.
The new KK CB moreover features the brand’s newly evolved modern 5 cut sole design. The sole grind is extremely versatile performing well for both diggers and sweepers. KYOEI has been testing the 5 cut soles for many years and their newest version interacts with the turf and plane feels superior to the last version.Its traditional soft forging and single-piece construction make the finger at impact finger veritably sublime. It’s like hitting a unprepossessed dumbo stick of butter when struck part-way but weightier of all is the mixture of accuracy, forgiveness, and some decent loftiness with its slightly stronger lofts. These were the 3 key goals of performance for KYOEI.
When considering the loftiness the lofts are 1-2* stronger than many traditionally lofted player’s irons with the PW coming in at 44*. The new KK CB features a similar sole width as the new dual weight II but with a little less vellicate while the topline is 0.5mm thinner.

Geared toward the scratch to mid handicap player the new KK CB is really a unconfined tousle of the weightier aspects of a forged player’s iron. Its CNC milled squatter and grooves provide the weightier spin possible withal with the consistency of perfectly unappetizing faces.
With less offset than many blades and its beautifully proportionate shape and dimensions, this should be one of the top contenders in any purist’s golf bag. TourSpecGolf is offering both the chrome satin enhanced polish version and the woebegone PVD option. The woebegone PVD is only well-nigh $10 increasingly per throne so it is worth considering although the PVD does not full-length the enhanced polishing that the satin model does.
One of the unconfined things well-nigh KYOEI is they indulge the consumer to purchase heads only or fully assembled and if you go with the latter TSG will moreover do no tuition installation with the purchase of head/shaft/grip.
