Has anybody hit or owned both of these?  I know they're older models but am looking to pick up one of these sets.  Any help or other threads that might discuss this would be helpful.

I've been playing CG reds for a few years now, I've always found them to be solid performers, decent forgiveness, but still able to hit the ball high or low, or hit a hook or a cut if I need to.  Decent feel for a cast iron.  Mine might even be for sale soon, looking to go forged, but I will miss them, been good to me for a long time now.

I would look away from the CG Reds. If you are a cleveland fan, the cg7s are good, and the cg16 tours are one of the most underrated clubs in the last two years. They can be found pretty cheap too. I really like the looks of them, but found the feel to be very harsh and not very forgiving. The CG7 tours are a step in the right direction, but if you can, demo a cg16 tour.

^Underrated cast clubs with a "smaller-ish" head. Sorry had to qualify that statement :) The MB2's and Ping i20's, both with PXi's, are rotating right now in my bag, for reference.

I have both, prefer the cg7 tours. Both are very good irons. For me, I have a very hard time not over drawing the reds for some reason. If you have a natural fade, the reds migh help in keeping the ball from fading, however if you have a natural draw, I would stay away from the reds.

I have hit both but purchased and play the CG7 tours. Both reds and CG7's hit a nice ball, but I really prefer the look of the CG7 tours - more compact and more appealing to my eye. I do agree with the above poster that the CG16 tours are great clubs as well - but again, I really prefer the look of the CG7 tours. There is just something about the undercut cavity in the CG16's that I never really liked. They did a much better job of hiding that feature it in the CG7 tours.

I still game CG7 tours - longest and most consistent irons i've hit.  Picked them up at the beginning of the season on the bay for like ~$200 with new GP Multicompound grips and Project X 6.0 shafts.  You should be able to find a deal!
