These irons are the absolute best irons I have ever owned I am a 4 hdcp and have been playing golf for almost 50 years.
The irons are extremely easy to hit. The 3 way cambered sole is amazing. These clubs do not dig. No longer am I taking huge divots. The divots now are much shallower if any and have improved the accuaracy of my shots dramatically. Absolutley love these irons.

At first I struggle with these clubs. They were more off set then my Tommy Armors 845. But now 3 months into it, I fine that I get a consistent 10 yards more distance. When I do miss hit, the clubs are much more forgiving. With just a little adjustment in were I hit the ball in m my stance, I can easily control the flight of the ball. The off set makes it easy to turn the ball over, but hard to fade. I would recommend these clubs.

Easy to hit, nothing to be afraid of
Ive read so many good reviews about this club so I had to buy them even though I wasnt able to hit them prior to purchase (no resellers around me stock them).
Was a bit worried it would be too much to handle for a 10 hcp like myself but so far they been great. Just love the ball flight and the mix of control and forgivness.Thanks Adams!

A players type club that any single digit player can enjoy!
These irons feel like the clubs I had 30 years ago, which had a feel of the clubhead, which has been missing in the cavity back irons recently. It feels like I am driving a Porshe, with CMB's, you have, looks, color and great styling.
I recommend to any single digit player who is afraid it looks too thin and hard to hit, it is Not. It feels Great.
Even kicked out my Titleist gap wedge.
Thanks again Adams.

Irons of the year!!!!
Just picked up my set yesterday, already played one round and these irons are butter. Can shape all sorts of shots, fade with these irons are a little difficult but high low or draws are a piece of cake. Let my friend who is a Nike snob hit these and he agreed never to say another bad thing about adams again. Great feeling irons shot a great round, irons have outstanding feel.

So easy to hit, it's like cheating
I've always played with blades but like all handicap golfers, we don't strike every shot pure so I was interested to see what modern technology offers.
The look and feel of these clubs are good. The top line is thin enough not to make me think I'm playing with something clunky. For someone who is used to playing with blades, this was an important factor in my decision to buy these clubs.
As I've only ever used blades I wasn't sure what to expect so it's difficult to review these clubs in comparison with other forgiving clubs.
I've played one round with these clubs and they are the easiest set of irons I have ever hit. It felt like cheating. All I had to do was swing, connect and the ball flies effortlessy straight. My playing partner tried the 4 iron on a long par 3 and couldn't believe how much control the club gave him. He hit 10 balls in a row onto the green from the tee box and immediately said he's going to buy a set. His natural swing produces a fade and these clubs straightened his fade.
This leads to the only negative point of these clubs but this is more to do with me transitioning from playing with blades more than any design fault of the clubs. I'm used to shaping shots and controlling trajectory and spin. I lost a great deal of those assets to my game today e.g. on one hole I hit my drive into the trees on the right hand side of the fairway. Normally I would bend a low 5 iron around the trees towards the left hand bunker and run the ball onto the green towards the pin. I wasn't able to pull that shot off today as the the direction of the ball went straightish with a slight fade straight into the bunker.
I can see the benefits of having forgiving clubs and I have only played one round of golf with them so I'll reserve final judgement as to whether the clubs are suited for my game or whether I need to change my game to suit the clubs.
If you are a golfer who generally wants to hit every shot straight and hit greens in regulation, then these are the clubs for you. Personally it bores me hitting straight shot after straight shot after straight shot. I want more from my game than just hitting the ball straight. Don't get me wrong, you can easily hit fades and draws but you are talking about small fades and draws.
On the other hand if I'm not striking the ball well, using these clubs will make me feel like I'm cheating and I can revert my game plan to just hitting the ball straight. For me I hope using these clubs don't take the fun out of golf. For a lot of golfers I'm sure they will be thinking the opposite, hitting the ball straight will make their game more enjoyable so it's horses for courses.
In summary, these clubs are perfect for their intended target audience. So easy to hit, it's like cheating. For me, I need to play with these clubs for the rest of the summer to see if adapting my game to using these clubs will still make golf as enjoyable as it is for me now.

Adams CMB's are just unreal.
I've played them all, at least all the Adams clubs. I was replacing my cavity backed set of Adams forged A4's which I loved, 6-years strong, but in that time I have tried the rest, CB-1's, CB-2's, and I still have my MB'2 for my blade set. The current CMB's are just unreal, and I didn't think it got any easier to hit than the A4's but the CMB's with the Tungsten weighting are almost too good to be fair.
The top-line view, the minimal sole width and offset to the lower CG all make a confidence inspiring head that really connects with the ball well, even on slight miss hits. Now, these clubs do not fix bad swings but they certainly assists in slight mis-center hits.
The standard shafts Adams is using is also top of the line stuff.
Adam's you and your team continue to push the envelope making clubs that keep us recreational golfers having fun on the course, I've been a loyal fan for a long time. Keep up the good work.
