So the rep just left, and got the full run down on everything.  AS Barbs mentioned above, we can't say anything  specific for a few more weeks, but a couple teases.  The V6 replacement is incr

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. 

Best in the Biz right here guys!  

Thanks for a great piece John!

Anyone with even half a repeatable swing can game these if they are like the V6's.

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. 

One thing I do see is 4* spacing in lofts progressively from the 5 iron to PW. I would have to hit some to tell if they would work for me. But they do look good

Great talent. Does an excellent job with every write up. Sometimes I skim to find what I’m interested in but with Barba’s I read every word.

Oldest trick in the book.  The D9s or whatever the replacement for the D7 is will have to be something special.  D7s have money for me!

D7 was the first W/S D iron line I didn't hit or own going all the way back to the Di11. And everyone raved about how good the D7 line was, so I'm really looking forward to the new D line for sure.

We have a winner!!!

 

I will tell you the ball is a really interesting idea that I'm not sure anyone's tried before. The new new woods and irons to replace the D7 look strong. Spoken with many fitters who swear the D7 may have been the most underrated driver over the past two years. 

We shall see, we shall see....
