Maltby DBM Forged Iron Heads

Maltby DBM Forged Iron Views

The Maltby DMB irons are the next generation of our proven classic 5 step true forged iron design. The lofts have been increased by 1 degree to a achieve a more modern loft progression along with improved finish durability and CNC groove dimensions. The DBM (Diamonized Black Metal) finish is a chemically implanted finish that is 2x more wear resistant, 3x more corrosion (rusting) resistant and 3x more scratch resistant than nickel chrome finishes. In addition to the added surface protection, the DMB finish is chemically implanted so there is no finish layer thickness added to the exterior finish as with nickel chrome finishes. Because the grooves are machined into forged iron heads prior to finishing, the DBM finish actually increases the productivity of the grooves vs. chrome finishes by eliminating this outer finish layer. The DBM irons also feature precision milled micro grooves to improve the consistency of spin from all turf conditions.

  • "DBM" Diamonized Black Metal finish is a chemically implanted finish that is more wear resistant, corrosion resistant and scratch resistant than any carbon steel finish currently available.
  • DBM finish increases surface hardness without affecting the feel and actually enhances the adjustability aspects of the 1035 carbon steel.
  • Five-step true forging process provides unparalleled quality and playability.
  • 1035 Carbon Steel provides a soft, solid feel and allows for easy adjustability.
  • Traditional blade profile appeals to better players and traditionalist while maintaining a high playability.
  • Cavity back design concentrates weight around the perimeter and low, yielding a very forgiving “players” club.
  • Blended leading and trailing edges of the sole will not snag.
  • Available #3 - PW, GW
  • RH only
  • Recommended ferrule – 74PI
  • Product Code = MA0225

Maltby DBM Forged Iron Clubhead Specifications

Maltby DBM Forged Iron Heads is rated 4.8571 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from DBM Forged I bought this in a 7 Iron because I was looking to experiment with forged irons. I love the way they look and feel! I first tried it with a prolaunch senior flex 65g, a reshafted Ping shaft(103g), a 95g graphite but the one that worked the best for me was the Graftech 65g Reg Flex because of the mid point shaft flex and stiffer tip. The Graftech 65 doesn't hurt my wrists since I have arthritis and doesn't balloon the ball. I installed a Win-Dritac grip and trimmed the final shaft length same as my Ping Eye 2- for a final swing weight of C6. My Ping Eyes 2's were stock at C-8. I also play Mizuno 800 HD with my DBM Forged in my bag both awesome.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Maltby Fan I have played maltby irons for over 10 years. The MO5's and the TE's most recently. While these are very much alike compared to the TE's, there is a major difference in feel. The DBM's feel much harder. Whether this is because of the finish or some other variable, I'm not quite sure. Whowever the durability and looks of the diamondized finish are outstanding. After playing them for probably 20 rounds I am trying to dial in my distance control with these irons. Overall another quality iron with outstanding eye appeal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Found a winner!!! Got a 4-pw set through a club building friend. Was looking for something out of the norm as far as "Big Bland" brands go. Currently play a set of miura black blades with aerotech ami99 players spec shafts and love the combination of feel and control. I put the same model shafts into these maltby irons and I must say based of my first few hours of hitting at local indoor facility I am blown away at how these irons feel and the distance if gained throughout the set. Obviously a bit stronger in loft but not overly so. What has me so pumped about these heads is the very clean look at address and the full, pure feel at contact. I thought nothing would out "feel" my miura blades but these DBM irons feel softer yet very very solid while struck. I've been razzed by my playing partners about playing these but they have no idea what they are missing. Until I bet one friend to hit it and tell me it's not equal or way better than his "tailored" club brand. Not to bash the almighty gods of b

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Heads I have been playing the MTF the last couple seasons and really loved the way they played and especially loved the way they felt. After seeing pics of the new DBM, I decided to try the 6 iron as a demo before getting the complete set. The heads are much better looking in person than the pics. I played the 6 iron for a couple rounds and have liked it enough that I now have the 5-pw set. I've been very impressed with the micro grooves so far as they do seem to spin the ball as much as the MTF (pre rule change grooves). The DBM finish seems very durable so far as well, but it's really too early to tell for sure. I do think that the DBM sound/feel a touch clickier than the MTF - it might be the harder finish that has changed the sound a touch to make them feel a bit firmer. Regardless,they still feel great and still have the overall soft sound and feel of forged heads. So far I'm happy and impressed. Guys at my course like the looks of them as well as I've gotten a cou

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DMB I previously had the TE Forged. The DMB irons are very nice. The same great feel and forgiveness, with a new dark appearance. Very high quality forged club with a much lower cost compared to OEMs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impeccable Maltby knows what he is doing. The DMB finish...the micro grooves... both ridiculously good. I have a set of TE Forged in chrome and these stepped it up two notches. I LOVE this company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Beauties I made a set of these for myself; 6-PW. They look and feel great with nice forgiveness. Nice soft forged feel. Well done!

Happy Holidays! Simple question - play PING I20's and am considering the DBM, I am concerned with the size of the DBM - how does it compare with the I20 (heel to toe)??

Asked by: BirdieSearcher
The Ping i20 will be slightly shorter in the heel to toe dimension than the DBM. The DBM's C-dimension, which is the the measurement from the hosel center line to the horizontal cg location is slightly longer than the i20, which is part of the reason the DBM performs so well and is so stable.

Nice looking heads but the 0.355 shafts are all over the place in the "universal" hoses. How do I tighten them up. Thanks, Greg

Asked by: gheerock
Prior to assembly measuring the shaft tip with a digital caliper is recommended to ensure the shaft tip diameters are actually .355" or smaller and are going completely to the bottom of the universal hosel. If the shaft tips are .355" or larger you simply have to tap the shafts into the hosel after epoxy has been applied and the shaft tips will lock into place. The bottom of the universal hosel on the DBM irons is drilled to an exact ID of .354". Sometimes the .355" shaft tips actual size is a little smaller than .354" due to manufacturing tolerances. You can correct this by grinding or cutting a very small amount off of each shaft tip until the shafts fit fairly snug. Normally this only requires about 1/16" or less trimming which will not affect the flex of the shaft.

Noticed that on this iron (and the MMB forged) there are more grooves than on most of your other irons (17 grooves on the six iron with 12 or 13 grooves on other clubs). what's the advantage to more grooves and does that affect it's conformity per USGA?

Asked by: Rev g
There isn't a limit as to how many grooves an iron can have on its face. The advantage to having micro grooves vs. standard grooves is that the smaller micro grooves offer more surface friction simply because there are more groove edges for the golf ball to catch. The distance between the grooves, groove shape and groove volume of our micro grooves are designed within the USGA specifications.
