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 4.9 out of 5 by 10.
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 Very Nice! I bought these heads a couple of weeks ago and installed my favorite shafts(Project X Flighted 5.5). After a few rounds I believe I have found my gamer clubs in the DBM's. Great clubs, smooth when hit in the sweet spot and just the amount of spin I like on approach shots. I have found them easy to hit and the feed back is very telling on good strikes and bad. Any strike of the face will give good distance. The heads look much nicer in person than the photos. I would strongly recommend these to others looking for a forged cavity back iron.

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 Great clubs I recently received these from my friend, a clubmaker in Holly Lake, TX. He outfitted them with True Temper X95 shafts and Golf Pride Tour Wrap grips. These are the greatest clubs I've ever owned. The appearance is superb but can't be outdone by the performance. The solid but soft feel is terrific. I'm getting an extra 10 yds per club extra than my old clubs. My only regret is that I didn't purchase them sooner.

does a .370 iron shaft fit this head

What does universal shaft ID mean? Can I use my KBS 370 shafts in the DBM iron?

Asked by: Bubba
The universal hosel designed into the DBM irons means you can use .355 taper tip shafts or .370 parallel tip shafts. The KBS .370 will work in the DBM irons.

Just want to confirm that the lofts on the DBM's are adjustable?

Asked by: HCB3
They are indeed adjustable up to +/- 2 degees. I originally took my set to a local Golf Galaxy store who told me they were not adjustable. I contacted Golfworks who confirmed that they were indeed adjustable, and proceeded to perform the adjustments for me with no issues.

Will the usual groove sharpener (associated with conforming grooves) work with these grooves? They look thinner. Thanks.

Asked by: ohio60
The grooves on the DBM irons are micro grooves. The original groove sharpener has a much wider tip and could possibly widen the edges on the micro groove making them non-conforming. We sell a different tip for the original groove sharpener that would be less likely to do damage to the DBM grooves. http://www.golfworks.com/product.asp?pn=GW1111

can tip weights be used if using a tapered shaft? I'm not sure if the universal hosel would affect the use of tip weights.

Asked by: victmor
Tip weights can be used with tapered shafts and the universal hosel does not affect the use of the tip weights.

I seem to be a little confused as to what shaft size to purchase for the DBM heads, .355 or .370 ?

Asked by: texgreen
The DBM irons have a universal hosel bore, so they can take either the .355 or the .370 tip shafts.

I want to purchase an 8 piece set of these irons (will also be purchasing shafts, grips, ferrules) and would need them bent 2 degrees flat. What would be the cost to have this done to an entire set. Many thanks.

Asked by: Mudaero
Loft and lie adjustments cost $4.95 per club.
