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 26.
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 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 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

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

Do I need to use a shim when putting a .355 shaft in this .370 hosel?

Asked by: mike
The DBM irons have a Universal Hosel design that will accept either the .355" taper tip or the .370" parallel tip shaft. You do not need to use a shim.

Is the 74p1 ferrule still the one to use if putting the DBM forged iron head on an xp95 .355 tapered shaft that had callaway apex heads

Asked by: mike
Yes the 74PI will still work with the XP95 taper tip shafts because the taper tip shafts taper out to approximately .370" where the shaft exits the top of the hosel.

Are you sure these heads are compatible with either a .355 or .370 shaft?

Asked by: Ace
Yes these will accept either a .355" taper tip or a .370" parallel tip. We use a Universal Hosel Bore in the DBM and TE Forged irons. The heads are initially bored for a .370" hosel bore and then another 1/8" deep hole is drilled at the bottom center of the bore. .355" taper tip shafts will taper out to approximately .370" where the shaft exits the top of the hosel so it will fit the .370" hosel bore. The .355" taper tip will fit into the 1/8" hole in the bottom center and epoxy will fit the space around the bottom part of the shaft. We have been selling this same irons head since 2003 with this same Universal Bore and it works well.

Can you build a DBM 5-iron with a grip and recoil 125 graphite shaft, but cut to the standard length for steel, and achieve D-3 or D-4 swingweight? I prefer the Golfworks length for steel (37.75 inches for 5 iron) and heavier swingweight. Thanks

Asked by: Dave in DC
I did a dry assembly to see if this will work and assuming a 50 gram standard size grip it would come out very close to the D3, D4 range.

Are the DBM irons the same iron as the TE irons.I know the lofts and bounce are different. Why is that.I like the look of chrome vs. the DBM look.Can I get that iron in chrome.Thank you.

Asked by: oneputter
The DBM irons are exactly the same head as the TE Forged. They come out of the same set of tools. We have the lofts adjusted 1 degree stronger, which changes the bounce, and have the black finish put on the DBM irons. Since the DBM was introduced in the last few years when lofts have become stronger we decided to have them adjusted 1 degree stronger at the foundry.

I'm thinking about purchasing 5-gw in the dbm heads. Can I get 1* upright lie or do they come standard and have to get them bent myself. If you do what is the charge? 

Asked by: Juice93
Yes you can request to have these irons adjusted 1 degree upright. We can adjust them for you. There is an addtional charge of $4.95 per club for this service.
