Yes they are and I guess this means new Launcher irons might be coming soon.  We should start a Go Fund Me and each get a new set.

This might just be the best bargain of the year right here.... they WON the most wanted SGI category last year.... against stiff competition.

I bought these about 6 weeks ago.  Needed a forgiving set with graphite irons to give my elbow and injured hand a break.  Took me a while to work out the short irons, but I love these sticks.  My scores have really improved with these.  I had my best two rounds of the year last weekend.  A 77 and 76. I've shot in the 80 - 84 range most of this year, but my score are really improving now that I'm hitting more greens with these Launchers.  I can hit them from any lie, and moderate rough is not an issue.  Mostly, I love how forgiving they are on days when I'm not at my best.  Just wish I bought them sooner!! 🙂  Can't recommend them enough.

Cleveland has been making great irons for years.  They always seem to fly under the radar though.  My first fitted set were the Cleveland TA-7 irons with the micro cavities.

Sorry @Wedgie let me be a smidgen more clear as much as I'm allowed.

Launcher will have an update to it.

But CBX is going away and there is a new line replacing it.  One that can't be talked about quite yet, but very very soon.   The Homepage I'm sure will have info on it and I'll provide some first hand info.

It's worth checking back for!!

Same, give me max forgiveness for lower scores. This new Launcher and the HL4 Iron-Wood are at the top of iron testing for me this year.

Except for those who were the chosen few who can play those players irons, why wouldn't you go with max forgiveness.  If I was in a hog wrestling contest, would I want a deep mud hole to pursue this challenge or would I want firmer ground to get a good hold on that slippery rascal? It's a non brainer cuz and I can't understand why golfers, who know the game is hard, unpredictable, and down right aggravating at times,  won't throw down their pride and get some help with the SGI irons.

Admittedly Grey, I went that way with the One Length experiment, but I just don't practice enough anymore due to time.

I know it's uncool for someone of my age and skill level to do it, because if I had the time to practice I know I could play those better player's irons, but it's like Adam said in an episode of NPG, take the most forgiving iron you can hit and stomach to look at and play it. Let them shame you while you're taking their money and trophies.

I just saw a commercial on the Golf Channel for the new HB irons. Wasn’t really paying attention but it surprised to see the commercial but nothing on the Cleveland site yet. No mention of the CBX. I think they were called Launcher Hb Turbo irons but don’t hold me to it.
