New Cobra King Forged Irons


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Received my Cobra King Forged CB set this past Saturday, 5-GW with the black $ Tapers. My first non-Ebay set, and I am completely over the moon. It's a shame that you can't really find reviews for the CBs yet. Because the stock set is a flow set, all you see is the 7 iron MB being tested. I would encourage anyone in the market for a players iron to consider these, and I think they should appeal to a larger audience than they are seemingly marketed to. I've attached a couple of pics and my experience with them so far in case anyone finds helpful. 

I am currently a 7 GHIN but that is mostly on the back of my driver and game around the greens vs having really strong iron play. I took them out on Torrey Pines South yesterday morning, a little bit nervous to try out my first players irons, especially in the longer irons which are not typically my specialty. As the rough gets closer to tournament condition for the Farmers Open next month, the course is an absolute menace. Poor driving led to an 85 as I put myself in a couple of impossible situations, but the irons performed even better than I could've expected. A couple of darts on 8 and 11 led to birdies, with 11 needing a 193 yard 5 iron into a 15 mph wind that I have never played well with my Ping iE1s, and 8 requiring a 145 yd 9 iron uphill that stuck at exactly pin high 10 ft left of the hole. The feel of these is incredible, similar to the Hogan Ft Worth blacks, but the forgiveness (at least for my first full spin through a bucket and one round of golf) is more on par with the AP2 & Forged Tour that I was also testing, and a real step up in this department compared to the similar-looking 2016 King Pros. A couple of thinned shots lost surprisingly no distance, at least from the number I was thinking pre-shot. Finally, I was able to muscle them through the rough just as easily as my previous gamers (i.e. not very easily, but the irons weren't the issue there 😐).

In summary, they have a small profile, both in the top line and in the heel-to-toe length, but pack in a relatively large amount of forgiveness and keep the incredible feel of 5x forged irons. And last, but certainly not least, they are drop-dead gorgeous. If anyone has questions or would like to see different pics let me know.

Gorgeous looking set, I love the look of all black for both shaft & head. Excited for you that it sounds like you were throwing darts your first round out with them. Thanks for sharing.

 

As you commented, the lower CBs aren't usually seen and these "have a small profile, both in the top line and in the heel-to-toe length" - care to share a picture of a low iron at address? Possibly compared to your Pings (or whichever set these replaced)??

These are compared to my iE1s. The Pings are a progressive set, so the longer the iron the greater the difference in club head size. Lighting was tough at the range and my photog skills aren't great, so these aren't the greatest representations, but hopefully helpful.

Awesome looking set!
I have a 2016 forged tech 4 iron that replaced the 4 iron in my ping I e1 set. I loved how little offset it had and the boxy shape for what was essentially a driving iron for me.
Good luck with the set! Again they look amazing.
