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
  • Conforms to the rules of golf
  • 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 43.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very surprised I am a scratch golfer but I enjoy piddling around and trying new equipment. Bought a gap wedge in the DBMs just to give a try. Shafted it with the KBS C Taiper 130x and to say the least after a couple of sessions with it I ordered the rest of the set. I have gone through more clubs than most people I know but I can say without hesitation these irons are the best I've played. My distance control is simply incredible with these irons. Not to mention that I blacked them out and they look is awesome. The finish is very durable also. After probably 30 rounds and a lot of practice the finish is hardly worn at all

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 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 Fantastic feel I have been playing the Srixon Z745 all season as my first pairing of the DBM with the AXE 110 left me with mediocre results. After some shaft tinkering and settling on the DBM heads and the AXE Tour X 95 S shafts I have kicked the Srixon's to the curb. First off the feel on contact is buttery soft almost as if you missed the ball entirely. The ball has a highish, soaring type of flight. They get up quickly and a very forgiving. Distance control is excellent and I lost no yardage from the 745s. Should have tinkered with the shafts much sooner. Absolutely love these heads.

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 Forged DBM Irons Bought these about 4 months ago, the looks and performance has been outstanding; so much so I sold my I20's previously bagged and dropped my handicap from 7 to 4 will these heads (matched with KBS tour shafts). They feel and perform like you would expect any fine forging to perform; plus that slightest cavity back is a benefit. The DBM is an outstanding process, it is embedded, not a dipped or coated process so it wears beautifully - and the micro grooves work. A possible improvement would be to move a small amount of material increasing perimeter weighting a fraction.

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

Do the DBM heads have a weight port?  I'd like to build a set with Recoil 670-F3 shafts (74g) and a standard 52g grip.  If I build the set to a length where the 5 iron is 37.75", roughly where will the swing weight be without adding weight to the head?

Asked by: Tom
No, the DBM irons do not have weight ports. At 37.75" the swingweight would come up in the C4 to C5 range with the Recoil 670 shafts and a 52 gram weight grip.

Can the DBM heads be bent 2 degrees weak in loft AND 2 degree upright in lie? Or is that too much bend-stress on the hosel?

Asked by: adam
Yes the DBM irons can be adjusted 2 degrees for loft and lie.

Currently I have Ping IE 4-gw with stock project x 6.0.  Would it be feasible to pull those shafts and install in DBM’s?  Also estimating with those shafts and GP MCC standard grips, could you estimate swingweights? 

Asked by: Nilopol
When changing shafts from one set of iron heads to another finished club length can be an issue but I would expect the finished lengths to stay basically the same with these two clubheads. I would expect the swingweight to stay approximately the same as it is with the Ping irons. Calculating from a 37.75" #5 with the GP MCC standard grip I get a swingweight in the D0 range.

Are you considering offering the DBMs in a club pack with graphite shafts anytime in the near future?

Asked by: Kelly252
Hopefully we will have at least one set up for 2018. In the mean time if you call Customer Service at 1-800-848-8358 they should be able to put a Club Pak together for you with graphite shafts with these irons.
