Bargain Priced Players Clubs
The Titleist 704.CB irons should be appealing to any golfer that has reasonable ball striking skill and prefers more of a blade-sized cavity back to the oversized and gaudy shovels that are so heavily marketed as "game-improvement" equipment. Game improvement comes from practice and the necessary feedback from the clubs that tell you when you're missing the sweet spot. Clubs that provide little of this and correct poor execution improve nothing more than sales of clubs by club marketers. The 703.CBs are durable forged stainless, very reasonably priced in the secondary market, and certainly clubs that one does not have to be embarassed to carry.

704cb stainless--Solid, solid performers!
I'm a 3 handicap. I recently had been playing Taylor Made r7 TPs but I wasn't happy with the performance or the feel. I began looking around the Bay for some forged Titleists in good shape. These came to me with nice grooves and dynamic gold s300s. I'd read all the reviews on these sticks before I got them and I'll have to agree with a few things. They do feel heavier than some other irons but I really believe that once you get used to the heft of the irons it will help slow you down and improve your tempo. I know it did mine. The first day I played them on the course I played the back tees at a very penal course and shot a high score (85). I did hit a few solid shots with the irons but also some clunkers. However, I was asked to play the next day and played at a private country club that I play very rarely and to make a long story short shot the best round of the year (72) with my most accurate iron play in months. Most every iron shot I hit were solid and right down my line! Now, other reviewers have said that these are not particularly long distance wise however I believe that if your swing is grooved and you have a high ss with irons they will go. Right now, for me, I'm having success just swinging nice and slow and controlled and letting the club do the work. I'm grooving my distances with a controlled swing. These heads will help you work the ball also. I was forced to hit a cut shot around a tree within my 72 round as a result of a pushed driver off the tee. I opened up the blade, pointed it at the pin and opened my stance enough to miss the tree. Swinging down my stance line the ball curved beautifully around the tree and tracked straight for the pin, exactly the way I had envisioned the shot. In a nutshell, if you have a solid swing and are a decent ball striker these will allow you to perfect your tempo and hit the ball the way you want to. I'd love to find a new set at a good price. I'd probably have to buy a new set.
A big thumbs up
I have played these irons for the past couple of years. I do change iron frequently but have really liked the 704 CB. I think they look great at setup and have a good solid feel at impact. I have not had a grip issue with these irons any more then any other club. My suggestion is to regrip with a good quality grip. This was apparently an issue with one reviewer who judges the irons by grip wear. These are probably best for a golfer with a handicap of 12 or less.

Titleist 704 CB Irons
This is probably Titleist's best version of the cavity back that they ever produced. Whether you are a low, mid, or high handicapper, these irons are very forgiving and have a great look to them at set up,(sometimes looks alone will go a mile for confidence).
I have owned a lot of sets of clubs and for some reason I have always ventured back to Titleist.
I decided to buy this particular set of irons for the forgiveness of a cavity back and the playability of a great looking set of irons. These are awesome!
Titleist 704.CB w/ Project X
These clubs are very nice and surprisingly easy toi hit for a forged iron. Since they are cavity back they give you all of the benefits of a cast club with the soft feel of a forged iron. The Project X shaft are wonderful if you are a fast swinger. They really help make it so you can feel the club head. I tried many other clubs before deciding on the 704.CB's, but these are by far the best feeling irons I have hit in the better player/game improvement category.
