My guess for the ball is some sort of Truvis type thing. 
 

Wedge... a CB wedge.

Good guess on the ball, but incorrect. I'm curious to see what it does actually look like tomorrow.

Surely not a return of the 2 tone Ping ball style from the late 80s?

I’d sign a deal with wilson.  I didn’t care for the “looks” of the V6’s... but man if they weren’t the top shelf Butter...

Wilson, if you are interested in signing the Shankiest of Shankster’s let me know.  I’m available.

thank you!!

Definitely check out the blog piece when it gets posted, there probably isn't a golf writer in the business more in tune with Wilson than John Barba. I'm really looking forward to reading his piece on them.

@Golfspy_CG2 iirc the V6 had a remarkably small footprint.  Do you know how the  physical dimensions (blade length, sole width, etc.) stack up CB vs V6?

John, sorry I don't.  I had the V6 for a period of time a couple years ago, and you are correct it was pretty small.  That was the ultimate reason I moved away from it.  When I struck it cleanly, it was the best feeling iron I've ever hit.  But at my level, I couldn't do that often enough.

When Looked at the CB it is definitely on the smaller size, but just don't have the measurements compared to the V6.   

Not trying to put build up John's piece on hype, but it wouldn't shock me one bit if he has that comparison.

Waiting for the head shed to hit "publish," but I can address a couple of things. Size wise, spec wise and almost everything else wise - the CB's will be very similar to the V6's. The cavity design, called Tri-Brace Technology, is primarily there to enhance sound and feel - with a side note of additional mass right behind the impact area, although I don't see that as being much of a performance differentiator. 

the other key difference is the 20 gram tungsten weight in the toe of the 4 through 7 irons to help shift the CG more towards the middle instead of being more heel-biased. 

They're designed to be able to integrate relatively seamlessly with the Staff Model blades for a combo set - lofts follow the same progression and the offset differences are there, but are very minimal. 

Hoping to get some samples in next week - not sure I'll be able to try them out due to upcoming knee surgery and, you know, winter - but we'll see.
