I have had the cobra King 3 utility for about 7 months now and let me say this thing is an absolute weapon. However, the shaft durability leaves alot to be desired. I have a high swing speed (125-130 with driver) and this shaft has splintered/broke right above the adapter(pic attached) three times in 7 months. Cobra has been great about replacing but the constant worry of the shaft breaking and having to deal with waiting for a new one to come in has been painful. That being said when the shaft isnt broken the club hits missiles, its easy for me to flight it down and hit a stinger off the tee (go to shot with it) or hit a higher flighted shot when necessary. The club itself is forgiving enough and gives you confidence standing over the top of it with a slightly thicker top edge. I also find it easy enough to shape the ball with a draw or fade when need be. The loft adjustability is a bonus as well, I have the 19.5 degree 3 cranked down to 18.5, with the ability to go up and down 1.5 degrees this club can be adjusted based on how youll use it on different courses. If you're in the market for a UDI this is definitely one to take a look at, but would recommend going a different shaft route than the stock catalyst, especially if you have a high swing speed
I'm starting this thread prematurely because I don't have range feedback to give you just yet. You see, I received my Taylormade UDI 3 iron today, fresh in its unopened packaging. Cost me $133 and since I'm a driving iron proponent and frequent user, I was salivating at the chance to put this club through a workout. Sadly, my 20 degree Ultimate Driving Iron no. 3 measures just 39.5" with its KBS C taper shaft. Well my 17 degree Speedblade 3 iron, which has a bigger face and is stupid easy to hit, has a 40.5" shaft. In fact, this UDI 3 is half an inch shorter than my Speedblade 4 iron with the same 20 degree face! I can see absolutely no point in comparing a "custom driving iron" against my set four iron, can you? For what it's worth, I hit the SB 3 iron about 230 to 250 and the 4 iron about 215 to 220. What's this small headed short UDI possibly gonna do? So I'm not even going to take the plastic off, I'm going to re-sell it and look for a UDI 2 iron, which should spec a little closer to the SB 3 iron. When I do, I'll resurrect this thread and re-post. In the meantime, if any of you want to chime in with your thoughts on the UDI or on driving irons in particular, feel free. (In fairness, I've learned that my SB's measure about 1/2" over the currently posted specs on TMag's website. I swear I bought them stock standard, but now it seems that they are "long".)
