This is the THP FIRST LOOK at the new irons coming out from Cleveland Golf in 2011. These are in hand pictures and THP has had the opportunity to test these extensively before release and a full review will be coming very soon. This iron line was one of the biggest hits at the 2010 THP Golf Outing & Demo Day and people have continued to rave about it for the last month. Now we can show off what people have been talking about.

Cleveland CG16 Black Pearl Irons

First Impression
The CG16 Irons are designed with a lighter overall club weight and longer club length for maximum distance. The larger cavity back with full undercut stretches the center of gravity low and deep to optimize launch angle and significantly improve forgiveness. The large thin face allows for increased COR and maximum ball speed that will produce distance competitive with any iron set on the market, but with better control. They come with lightweight steel or graphite shafts and are available in two finishes. Black Pearl (Pictured above) or Satin Chrome.

Tour Option
The CG16 Tour Irons are an all-around player’s set that are made for golfers that demand solid feel, accuracy, and workability, while still getting forgiveness. The modest cavity back with engineered undercut improves ball speed, mishit distance, and accuracy. They are also available in the two finishes mentioned above.

Performance
I will leave that to those that had a chance to test it out at the THP Demo Day and their feedback.

    LOVED THESE IRONS! Great distance, great feel, and they were very easy to hit a high/straight ball with. Very sharp looking as well. I love the grooves as they gave me confidence over the ball. Can’t wait until they come out!

  2. OEM Kevin™ says:

    I too loved these irons at the outing. I was very surprised with the feel and performance and loved the ball flight I was getting. Great sticks. Again Cleveland has another winner on their hands.

    i know that they were the favorite iron of many testers. one of those was my dad. he’ll be 60 in a couple of years and he’s never been one to buy into the hype of “new” irons. it’s like pulling teeth to get him to demo anything, but these irons were the highlight of his demo day at PGA National.

    he raved about them for about 6 hours on the drive back home. it was nice to hear him describe how the weighting was perfect, the feel was great, and the results were even better.

    well done cleveland, you’ve really brought it for 2011 and i have a feeling that you’ll be well represented here on THP.

    Sweet looking irons. Love the BP finish. Great pics on the forum thread as well.

  5. RxGus says:

    These irons are on the TOP of my list for offseason purchases. They amazed the crap out of me at the outing and seeing pictures of them again is making my heart race. Cleveland didn’t just step to the plate with a “longer” iron to compete with other OEM- they very well may have set the new bar for performance

    Based on the rave reviews, I see these in my bag as soon as they come out!

  7. crazzy says:

    i don’t doubt that they perform well, but these things are fugly…

  8. Danno says:

    Has anyone hit these and the new Mizuno JPX800 and JPX800 Tour? Comparable? I am having a lovefest for the Mizuno’s.

  9. Administrator says:

    Danno,
    Check the THP forum for TONS of feedback from the THP Demo Day on all the sets.

  10. Brendon says:

    Danno… I tried the JPX800 Pro alongside the CG16 tours & both are fabulous clubs. What is/has won me over for the Clevelands (at least here in Australia) is the fact that they are at least $30 cheaper per club & feel as good, if not better than the Mizuno’s…. and I’ve been drooling over Mizuno’s for a loooong time!
