CB-III (Says Forged III on head)
I'm a beginner golfer yet I am sensitive to the feel of my swing and the impact I make with the ball. I'm a current owner of the OC-x1's and I really learned how to nearly perfect my swing with them. Now, however, I find them to be a bit heavy and bulky and I tend to push the ball with them more often then not. I decided to change the head to CB-III's after researching and demoing the rest of KZG's lineup as well as Cobras's, Clevelands, Callaway's, Nike's, Taylormade's, Ping's, Titleist's offerings. These heads are fantastic. I've never hit straighter, or worked the ball as well. They are beautiful at address, with a thin forged topline. I feel very confident with them even though it is usually suggested that beginner should usually go for cast-iron cavity irons (OC-x1's for instance). Not I, as I prefer their feel to any other iron set I've tested -- cavity or forged. And I've tested all the popular ones. They are over-sized, soft-feeling, polished-finished, high-quality heads. They are twice the price of the OC-x1's pricing them near the typical forged offerings from Callaway, Cleveland, and Nike.
I haven't dealt with KZG directly; only thru my local dealer. However, KZG seems to be very accommendating to its customers. They offer me twice the credit if I trade in KZG clubs for KZG clubs. (Note: my dealer promotes KZG only, and is an exclusive KZG clubfitter) This is probably close to 4x what you would get from a golf chain trade-in.
