714 CB Irons
Titleist Top-Shelf Workability and Shot Control
Titleist has released their newly updated version of the company's cavity-back irons for better players, the new 714 CB, that made their irons debut on the PGA Tour in June at the AT&T National at Congressional Country Club.
The 714 CB irons are forged from 1025 carbon steel to enhance feel and feedback at impact. While the perimeter weighting of the classically-shaped cavity back design makes them more forgiving than their muscleback counterpart, the 714 MB irons, they are still intended for highly-skilled players.
The 714 CB heads are the same size as their predecessor's, the 712 CB, and they come with the same lofts. Titleist has given the 714 CB a straighter leading edge, and the edge itself has been made less sharp and comes from the factory "pre-worn." In addition, Titleist has made the sole more curved from the leading edge to the back of the sole. This camber helps to make the club work through the ground more easily – even on steeper swings that better players often create in order to produce a fade.
Titleist also designed the transitional portion of the heel area where the leading edge blends into the hosel to be smoother and straighter so the hosel appears to flow more directly into the head. And, Titleist slightly updated the cosmetics of the 714 CB by using both shiny chrome and brushed chrome.
If you are a seasoned, better player who demands feel and precision then you’ll like these irons. But Titleist acknowledges that they are not for everyone. When it comes to the new 714 CB cavity back irons, they add “performance is not an issue, but your skill level might be."
- Maximum shot control - traditional constant blade length with minimal progressive offset
- Classic solid feel - from the compact head shape and shallow cavity with inner muscle
- High performance sole - increased camber and blended width progression
- Improved address profile - slightly straighter leading edge and blended hosel for less visual offset
- Compact short irons - with slightly reduced blade height in the heel
- High performance, tour-proven Dynamic Gold steel stock shaft provides tour-preferred flight, feel, feedback and performance

Secondly, I do love the look and feel of this iron set. What is also cool is that I have found them to be surprisingly more forgiving than I anticipated. I have played Titleist DCI 990's for years and wanted to make the leap to a true blade. The price was too good to pass on, so I pulled the trigger on the 714 CB's. Have only played 3 rounds so far, but it has been EXTREMELY windy in our area each time I have played...so I don't feel I have a true picture yet compared to my old set in decent conditions. My first impressions are really positive with the set so far. CB's seem to be longer with less effort than my DCI's. I am digging the ability for more trajectory control as well...and I am delighted with more forgiveness than I expected. Not to say these clubs are really forgiving, just more than I expected after reading many reviews. I have hit a few "toey" shots with the CB's that actually turned out better than I would have ever expected from a blade. I think Titleist makes awesome products, and if you are at the point in the game where you are considering bladed irons, especially for the price...the 714 CB's are the way to go IMO.
Titleist 714 CB Irons Expert Review
Written By: Bob Gomavitz
This 1025 Carbon Steel head offers a minimal-progressive offset, and high performance sole from the increased camber and sole width progression. The main difference between the MB and the CB versions is the shallow cavity with an inner muscle design. This creates a slight increase of forgiveness through the redistribution of the weight around the club.
Who's It For?
Players irons are for touring and club pros, skilled amateurs and traditionalists. While they offer the greatest feel and maneuverability, with a smaller sweet spot than game improvement irons they are also the toughest to hit consistently.
One would be hard pressed to tell the difference between the MB and CB versions when looking down at address, only seeing a real difference in shape when you flip the head over. Titleist clubs are consistently clean and classic looking, and these two forged heads are truly at the head of the class, even for Titleist. Like the MB, the feel was fantastic and hard to tell the ball flight apart. Again, the head felt on the light side like the MB. My overall results were not quite as good as the MB’s which I honestly thought would have been the other way around. This is a stunning club to say the least, but give me the MB’s please!
