CGS Orion Closer MB

Recommended Posts

You are looking at the new CGS Orion Closer Muscle Back Iron. For those who have never heard of this brand it is a Japanese botique golf brand located in Tsubame Sanjo, Tsubame Sanjo is famous for it’s polishing and the company that handles the CGS Orion wedges in the past has been well known for the polishing the screens of Apple’s first generation Ipod’s. This combination of Himeji handcrafting and Tsubame Sanjo’s polishing creates a stunning effect.

HIMEJI X TSUBAME SANJO – Himeji in the small town of Ichikawa has been known as the heart of Japanese Golf Club manufacturing, and CGS Orion has combined the best of hand ground wedges in Japan with the absolute best polishing house in Japan located in Niigata prefecture.

The CGS Closer series consists of a muscle back and a cavity black which can both be ordered separately or as a combo set. CGS-Orion has specifically designed these to flow as a combo for more forgiveness in the long irons.

Forged of S20C these feel soft and add to that the copper underlay below the nickel chromium finish. The forging, molding, grinding and plating is all done in Hyogo ken while the finishing and polishing in Niigata Prefecture.

The lofts are a little stronger on these the PW comes in at 45* The sole shape of the #3 thru #7 have a constant center of gravity positioned lower on the face for an easier time launching the ball for more distance. The longer irons also have a 3 cut sole while #8 thru PW has a 2 cut sole grind with a higher center of gravity location of optimum spin and accuracy on approach shots. How they did this was by having a progressive weight bump that is narrow in long irons, medium in mid irons and spread wider in the short irons.

In the photo below you can see the gorgeous shape at address.

So it is my opinion that CGS Orion has the best polishing skills of any of the Japanese brands, second place would be Miura. It really helps with the overall luster and looks of the final product when experts at polishing put their touch on the product making the end result a higher quality appearance.

It's interesting that they combined a stronger loft with an MB. 

I guess more people are used to playing strong lofted cavity irons before they make their way to use MBs, so it does makes sense. 

Are these also the work of Shinagawa grinding?   the overall profile and the leading edge relief look very similar to the Seven X Shinagawa  as well as the Himeji X Tsubame irons.  

Very sharp looking irons!

I will post the CB soon!

The CB is the same Oichi head I was talking about that original S15C Seven CB was made out of and Fujimoto CB and others.

Same goes for this MB this is the same Oichi head as Fuji MB and Proto Seven MB etc..

Seven used S15C and SS400.  

Fuji MB is SS400

Not sure why CGS is claiming this is S20C I believe that to be false.   The grind is Shinagawa but then CGS takes it a step further by polishing the edges and finish better than any brand does.

The 2-D cad of the closer series is based on my design as well.
