A review of the Titleist Muscle Back (MB) Forged Irons sets for 2014

 

If you can hit the Titleist 714 MB Forged Irons consistently, you might want to think about putting them in your bag. As advertised, the irons provide the ability to control trajectory and work the ball in either direction.

 

The new Titleist 714 MB Forged Irons gets a great review from our critic.

The new Titleist 714 MB Forged Irons gets a great review from our critic.

The Titleist 714 MB Forged Iron is a true player’s iron designed with a slight progressive offset and chrome finish. The Titleist 714 MB Forged Irons, in particular, is a blade designed from 1025 carbon steel and intended to provide outstanding feel.

 

 

Technology (9.6 out of 10)

Distance is always an important consideration in any iron and testing revealed a consistent, yet average result in the distance department. Titleist designed the MB Forged Irons with standard lofts, while the Titleist AP1 or Titleist AP2 many other irons outside of the Titleist family feature stronger lofts to help produce longer shots.

If you are looking for more distance there are plenty of options, such as the Titleist AP1 or AP2. However, the Titleist 714 MB Forged Irons provide unmatched feel, consistency and performance for someone who controls the distance, direction and trajectory of the golf ball.

Balls that strike the sweet spot have a soft and smooth feeling while off-center hits don’t offer that luxury. I recently heard a statistic from a study, the average 10 handicap player misses the sweet spot 65 percent of the time. Therefore, these Titleist 714 MB Forged Iron is intended for low-handicap players and will perform and rate well for a skilled player.

The Titleist 714 MB Irons are for the serious player.

Looks (10 out of 10)

Even high-handicap players will admire the beauty of the Titleist 714 MB Forged Irons. However, it really is geared toward skilled ball strikers. Off-center hits will fly much shorter and offline compared to more forgiving models, such as the AP1 or Titleist AP2 iron lines.

The traditional blade iron is designed with a thin topline and sole and the center of gravity (CG) is positioned behind the sweet spot in the muscle back. The appearance is absolutely incredible.

The Titleist 714 MB Irons were well reviewed but tough to play unless high skilled.

Performance (9.6 out of 10)

I tested the Titleist 714 MB Forged Irons with a True Temper Dynamic Gold S300 shaft and stock Titleist Tour Velvet grip. I truly enjoyed the heavy feeling of the iron with a D2 swing weight.

But the classic blade design typically provides little forgiveness. So, the new Titleist 714 MB Irons consistently delivered a straight ball flight with very little movement. And the impact generally produced a low- to mid-ball flight. 

The Titleist 714 MB Forged Irons also perform and feel great around the green for chips and pitches. That heavy feeling of the irons and thin sole help the iron glide down and dig the ball out of the rough and tight lies in the fairway.

Final Thoughts (Overall: 9.7 out of 10)

Titleist hit a home run in looks department. Its 714 MB Irons set just incredible! 

Low-handicap players will absolutely love the weighting, thin topline, sole and feel of the 2014 Titleist 714 MB Forged Irons. If you have the game to play the Titleist 714 MB Forged Irons, they produce consistent and reliable results.

My biggest surprise is just how consistent and straight the club performed. While the new Titleist 714 MB Forged look is intimidating, it feels and performs amazing.

Still, although only a minority of the golfing population can play the irons, they are an excellent choice for anyone with the ability to play the Titleist 714 MB Forged Irons. The Titleist MB Forged Irons cost close to a grand for a set of eight, which actually is in line with its real competitors, such as the Ping S55.

Players who are concerned about hitting a blade in the long irons might opt to switch for the long- and mid-irons with the Titleist 714 CB Forged or AP1 irons sets.  Therefore, players will still have the outstanding feel in short irons and forgiveness in long- and mid-irons.
