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 48.
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 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 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 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 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 forged irons with forgiveness!! This is the first review I have ever written on irons. I am a 12 handicap that probably should play game improvement irons but I much prefer the look and feel of forged irons. I have played AP2's and Mizuno MPH5's recently, and tried these on a whim. Ball flight with Apollo Gunsmoke shafts are slightly higher than both of those models, and about a half club longer. What blows me away about these is the forgiveness and feel. Never have I had a set of irons that are as forgiving but are forged. Can't say enough good things about them!!

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

Just purchased a set of these irons, and they haven't shipped yet. Is a customization included (lie angle) since I bought the whole set??

Asked by: Mark B
If you purchased these irons as a Club Pak and took advantage of the free assembly than lie angle adjustments are included in that price. If you purchased just the clubheads or the Club Pak but did not have it assembled than the lie angle adjusments are $4.95 per clubhead.

I've been thinking of these forged irons.  Being I'm used to GI irons, I'm worried that, with the relatively low bounce, I might be producing fat shots.  Is the sole width wide enough to negate the effects of low bounce? Thanks.

Asked by: Bruce
The sole on the DBM irons is .780" wide on the #6 iron and has a 11-12 radius from to back. Bounce angle ranges from 2 degrees in the long and mid irons to 4 in the short irons. This might seem like a lower degree of bounce, but with the radius and sole width it has not been a concern with regards to producing fat shots. I have played them ever since they came out, and I have a steeper attack angle and have no problems, no propensity to hit shots fat. Turf interaction is perfect, at least for me.

Would I be able to achieve a D1 Swing weight with the DMB head, the new DG 105 X shaft, standard GP 2g wrap 60 and +1/4 shaft length than your standard length?

Asked by: Gus
Assembling the 5 iron to 38" (+ 1/4" over our standard) with the DG 105 X100 and the GP 2G standard size grip it will come up in the C9 range. With the Mid Size 2G it drops to the C7 range.

I would like to purchase a club pak with the DBM head with Paderson TS-1 graphite shafts, is that possible?  If so, can you give me a price for the 4-GW set?

Asked by: Kelly252
No, we do not have the DBM Forged irons set up in a Club Pak with the Paderson iron shafts. You would have to purchase the heads, shafts and grips separately and they would not qualify for Pak pricing.

I plan to fit this head with Dynalite S300 and 60g grips. Would it be OK? I would like to have D2 swing weight.

Asked by: Tony0616
Yes the Dynalite S300 can match well with the DBM irons. Getting D2 swingweight depends on what length you will be assembling these irons. At standard length (37.75" #5 iron) with the 60 gram weight grip you will need to add weight to get to your D2 swingweight.

I've used your recommended ferrule for the DBMs with great success. Do any of your collared ferrules fit these heads when using a .355 shaft? Thank you.

Asked by: Birddog
Collared ferrules will not fit the DBM heads or any of our current model heads. We have not designed any of them to use a collared ferrule.

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.
