The Maltby MMB Form Forged irons are the result of the challenge to create a muscle back type design that has a high degree of playability (Super Playability Category of the Maltby Playability Factor).
As a part of the design, Maltby wanted to have features on the design that actually showed how mass was redistributed to improve playability. This was accomplished by using “weight relief pockets and a unique (inverted) muscle design. All this while still giving the player the feeling that they were looking at a traditional blade profile. If the feedback from our product development test committee is any indication, they succeeded, with honors. The Maltby MMB irons bring a new level of playability rarely seen in the muscle back blade category.

"I think it is one of the best-looking clubs out there. I like how it looks at set up and I like how it looks in the bag (even though that's not supposed to be worth anything). I appreciate your workmanship.
I think the ball seems to travel just a bit farther than with my Maltby Logic Tradition 8-iron. Maybe in the 2-to-5 yard range.
Picked up my new sticks today and went straight to the range, those things are sweet !!! They fly almost as high as my titleists but they don't balloon on me, they just keep on going, and thats with crappy range balls!!! My playing buddies are not going to like me next saturday lol
