Idea Black CB3 Irons
The perfect irons for my game!
Very recently (just days from Adams move CB3s to the "legacy" category) that I received my 4-GW RH Reg set. It was after some detailed homework that I zeroed in on CB3. And that has now surely become a reason for my happiness. I am not a pro nor do I am really bothered to what handicap am I playing. I simply golf for recreation and fun. I found these irons look great, are workable, have a very good feel. When struck from the sweet spot, I get that very perfect sound and the butter smooth feedback. The irons are very accurate with modern "U" grooves. CB3s are somewhat similar to Idea Pro A12s (rated No.1) but offer added forgiveness to accommodate a wider spectrum of players including me. At this moment I really cannot comment on the quality and the durability of these clubs as I think it to be wise to comment only with the passage of time and play. I am enjoying these clubs! Thanks.

I just purchased these clubs today after months of looking around for the right type of club for me. I have been playing with Taylormade MCs for the last year. I couldnt get consistant ball striking with those clubs. I went straight to the driving range after having grips,loft and lies checked. I noticed after three balls an immediate difference. The ball jumped off of the club face with ease PW-4i. My miss hits were even close to my target. I was able to work the ball both directions. The only con would be the high ball flight. After one session with these clubs I cant wait until I hit the course this weekend.

Pasted on badge is loose out of the box
Just got my clubs brand new out of the box and the black "Idea" badge is lifted off of the back of the 7 iron. Adams says they are warrantied for 2 years but with this poor build quality I am afraid of what's going to happen down the road. Definitely not happy after the high coat of these irons. Happiness turns to frustration.

Excellent quality, shocking performance
First and foremost I would say go get fitted for irons, DO NOT simply buy irons off the shelf. I went down the St. Augustine to get fitted for some new irons that I could work both ways. I am a 4 handicap looking to shave some strokes and needed something that I could work both ways and not lose distance or feel.
I went into the fitting thinking that I would get the Titleist AP2 or some equivalent from Mizuno. After hitting the AP2 and the MP-59, I favored the MP-59, which was a little bit longer than the AP2 but with a softer feel. The guy fitting me forgot to tighten the MP-59 and he came back with the CB3.
The CB3 was a full club longer than the AP2 and MP-59. With a smooth swing, the ball explodes off the face with consistent distance. I can no longer get away with a terrible swing, but these clubs give you a little help getting the ball in the air. The thing I like the most is the weight of the club. I went with the Dynamic Gold x100 shaft and couldn't be happier.
If you are on the edge of becoming a scratch golfer, are looking for a cavity back that is workable, the CB3 is the way to go! I was shocked at how well they performed. Couldn't be more ecstatic about my golf game right now! THANK YOU ADAMS!

I love these irons.
I have been playing my CB3's for about 2 weeeks so I have in 6 rounds and one range session. I was looking for a new higher launching shaft and had the opportunity to hit some irons with the KBS Tour 90 shaft, the Adams Black CB3's are definitely the perfect iron shaft combination I have ever hit.
They make me think tempo during my swing and the balls are a very nice mid high tragectory which is very easy to control. Great feel and sound at contact and beautiful to look at, as I said above "I love these irons."

"This product is to die for"---Great Irons
I bought these clubs (4-GW) in late October and had been chomping at the bit to play with them. I was a little leary due to the fact I was in love with my A3 Irons I have had for awhile....BUT
I have to tell you they are as strong if not stronger than the A3's, set up better, look better and play just as well as the U grooved A3's...Decent Golf Balls will stop on a dime from the 5 Iron right thru the GW.
The steel shafts are really good ones (Not like some other club makers) and spec out right

CB3 replaced my Mizuno MP53
I purchased the CB3 irons with KBS Tour 90 Stiff flex about 10 days ago and have played four rounds since. Still getting use to their increased distance, but find them to be both forgiving and accurate. The 49 degree Gap wedge is quickly becoming my “go to” chipping club around the greens.
The CB3 replaced my Mizuno MP53 with DGSL R Flex.
