At least being a major OEM, Cobra has presence in most golf retail outlets so I am hoping they have 5-7-9 set to demo.

The Puma/Cobra Rep was by today.  

 

I got to hit both the F7 One  and One Forged.   OMG, is all I can say about the One Forged.   Our head pro was just sending them into orbit and he is coming from a Nike Forged Blade.  I on the other hand as a 17 was actually hitting very good shots with them, in a shaft that is way too stout for me KBS 120, where I like the KBS Tour 90, so I can imagine if Ihad the right shaft, I would have been hitting them even better.

 

But the concept is legit Our Head Pro was really very skeptical, but after trying it, he said it's like hitting a 7 iron on every shot.  The rep said, Yep that's the idea!!    These will get a serious look by me.

That Cobra single length is a good looking thing.  I would love to be at a demo day and give them a swing or two.

They'll be doing a demo day at our course. But that's not until like April.

 

I hope you get to hit them OG. They are sweet.

I was a huge Cobra fan back in the day and nothing says I can't swing that way again however it would have to be pretty special.

In my limited trial of them today, they are. I want to hit it with a shaft suited for me though. There is a club fitter not far from where I live that has a fitting cart for them or will have when they are released I should say.

I'm also in the excited to demo them boat.  Watched the Rick Shiels video on them where he did the gapping test.  Seemed like his 4-5-6 irons didn't have the gaps he was looking for, but since my longest iron is 6 that shouldn't be as much of a problem.  

 

I feel like there would be quite an adjustment period but if you can still with them long enough to get through it then the theory is sound.

Rick shields did a review on the forged ones and pointed out what I think might end up being an issue for a lot of people which is the longer irons won't fly high enough to hold any greens

I don't see it as a problem for me, because my longest iron into a green now is a 5i and it holds OK.   These Cobras shouldn't fly any lower than my clubs.  I don't hit a high ball anyway.

 

I will certainly be giving them a try, but I think I might have more issues with the short clubs.  I don't know if I could get used to hitting a wedge that is a 7i length.  I guess that is what a demo day is for.

They might fly lower because loss of club head speed.

We didn't see that today.

 

In fact our Pro said the 5 iron flew too high for him. But it was a KBS 120g shaft and he usually plays a X100 I believe.

 

For me it flew just a touch lower than I would like. But I am on the other end of the spectrum. I usually play a KBS Tour 90 or recoil 680

 

As for gapping the rep said the only issue they have noticed is the PW will go about 2 to 3.yards further than the normal PW gap (according to robot and tour level testing). They haven't had them in enough amateur level player hands yet to get numbers. Bit expects that small of difference to be even smaller in our hands and of less consequence.

rick shiels review is worth a watch if you are considering these. I like his idea of 3 mini one length sets, i.e. Wedge length for W-9, 7i length for 8-6i, and 5i length for the long irons to fix the gapping issues.

I would only bag say 5 - 9 iron and use my regular wedges.  Any idea how much these puppies will be going for?

The F7 One will be $699 steel and $799 graphite standard set is 5-GW

 

The One Forged $999 steel standard set is 4-PW

 

I had thought the same setup as well OG, especially since I love my SM6 wedges.  But I would probably still order the 5-GW just to try and keep all the potential full shot swings the same, then just use my 54 and 58 for around the green as I usually do.    If I felt the longer GW became too cumbersome, I could always put the 50 SM6 back in the bag.

Ok that's (F7) about standard pricing these days so it's not going to run off the serious contenders for these new sticks.  The forged ones are pricey and I would definitely have to put in some serious demo time with them before I could lay down a grand.

Yep the F7 are right there with most of the iron pricing.    But I think the pricing on the One Forged is much better by at least $100 to $200 than the premium pricing we've seen for some other sets, such as the new Callaway release, remember how hot and defensive that discussion got...ha.

Ok today I had a chance to hit the new Cobra F7 single length irons today.  Not what I was hoping for and not my cup of tea at all. .  The distances were shorter than my current irons with way too much right to left movement. To be fair,,,,, this was inside at DGS and things could have been better on an outdoor range however,,, I didn't get that ahhhhh hahhhh feel from em.
