Cleveland has struggled with the appearance of the game-improvement irons in the past, but it looks like they’ve figured it out with the new Cleveland CG7 Black Pearl Irons, this one looks and plays like they’ve broken out of their shell.

The CG7 Black Pearl has a micro cavity within the top line which decreases in size going from the long irons to the short ones.  This decrease by loft helps optimize the iron for each head.

Additionally, the Heel/Toe Muscle Weighting delivers a whopping 6% greater MOI than traditional irons.  The result is maximum forgiveness on miss-hits.

Another fine feature of the CG7 Black Pearl is the laser milled face that provides a consistent surface roughness that maximizes spin, something most all of us need, especially the mid to high handicapper.

And we can’t forget the one piece injection molded lightweight visco-elastic insert.  This covers the entire perimeter of the cavity and the base of the head that provides unparalleled vibration dampening across the entire face for superb feel, even on off center hits.

Actual Player Feedback-

“These look great at address.  I love the stealth look. It just loads you with confidence”

“Real positive feedback with off-the-chart forgiveness”

“One of clevelands best .the grooves and laser milled face make the ball fly high with consistent trajectory..well suited for those who fight a slice or fade. very forgiving on mishits”

[review pros=”Where do we start?  Besides looking great at address, the Cleveland CG7 Black Pearl has many performance driven characteristics.  The micro cavity coupled with laser milled face and gel cavity back makes this a superb iron for the mid to high handicapper. ” cons=”Not to sound contradictory, but the head shape at address may bother some.” score=99.6]

Overall Rating-

Cleveland definitely got this one right.  The new Cleveland CG7 Black Pearl Irons provide superior distance, control and feel.  The distance is the culmination of the Dynamic Micro cavity Technology, progressively sized micro cavities for optimized CG location.
