Cobra F9 & F9 ONE Irons Thread

Recommended Posts

The One Length looks make me think of Tour Edge with that shape & color. For me, Cobra irons always look so much better in hand than they do in pics.

The F9 One Length irons are the only irons that interest me this year.  Curious to see how the new shaft strategy plays out since their stance on shafts changes every year with the "F" series one lengths but not with their other one length offerings.  Anyone know why?

Also, thanks jlukes for taking the lead and creating all of the new product threads.

I’m in the market for new irons and have been toying with the idea of F9 One Lengths but at 5 iron length i.e. 1.25″ longer than stock. 

Due to the parameter of length being constant and head weights varying more than variable lengths I would expect One Length irons to be more effected by the effects of choking. Rather than choking down my thought is that choking up would give a similar length shot at a steeper descent angle i.e. rather than a stock OL 5 iron playing a slightly longer (choked up) 6 iron.

So I have two lengths. Stock gives me the flatter long irons to go under wind or at more generous pins while the choked up iron length allows me to hit a shorter club the same distance but come in steeper. My thought is it gives me two options with the same swing. 

I assume there will be a choke length that gives the same distance, as per the previous example a stock 5 iron versus a choked up 6 iron and possibly for someone capable of an even more consistent strike this could be modified slightly to reduce the gapping variation i.e. instead of say 10-12 yards between clubs he alters the choke to bring his gapping down to 5-6 yards so he effectively carries two irons per iron i.e. 5i, 5i stock, 6i, 6i stock etc.

I appreciate that choking down on variable length clubs has always been ‘a thing’ but like I said, I’d think One Length would be more sensitive to this and the idea kind of flips it on it’s head.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this as it’s an idea that needs bouncing off someone who’d know. It might be right but it might be utter nonsense as well.

Are they all set on a 7 iron length shaft? It’s so interesting, yet are any pros besides Dechambo using it?

According to Cobra they are all 7 iron length and their standard is 37.5 inches for the 7. I’m only aware of Bryson playing these on tour but I frequent a top 100 fitter and he told me the guys buying the Edel single length irons from him are local pros and mini tour guys. Kind of interesting that guys that make a living at the lower level are trying these to get over the hump.

All 7 iron length but variable lie angle which is a bit odd. More upright for the longer irons and flatter for the shorter. Effectively like the spokes of a wheel if the hub was the ball. Not sure what this does to the one swing, one spine angle etc claims? That said I don’t think Cobra have said this since the F7 irons (could be wrong). Still, less adjustments than variable length. 

Perhaps the variable lie angle would make the transition to one length easier?

      Shankster and PING Blueprint Irons---A Match Made in Heaven? 
      Every so often we do a special review of a club on MGS.   Usually it's when the OEM provides us with one set or one driver etc for review, it's not practical to open it up to over 500 to 1,000 applications and pick just one person.
      So when the Blueprint review was generously offered by PING with the stipulation it went to a member who was a true low single digit handicap, we discussed as a group who would be an ideal member to reach out to test these beauties. Honestly at least half a dozen names came to mind, but some of them were already involved in a testing or had just completed one.  
      Then one name really jumped out at us,  Shankster.   Not just because he fit the handicap requirement, but if there is any one person on this site who is a more of a traditionalist and prefers the minimalist design in a club than Alan, we don't know who it is.  
      When we reached out to Shankster, it took him about 1 minute to say yes, and that's only because he was recovering from the shock of being asked and making sure he wasn't being punked!     We had to work through the timing of his move from Michigan to Maryland, but all that got sorted out.
      Not knowing exactly when today he'll get his post up, I'll leave you with a few of these.

      PRESS RELEASE
      PING introduces next generation
      of custom-fit women’s equipment
       
      PHOENIX (July 1, 2019): Advancements in technology, lighter overall club weight, expanded fitting options and premium materials combine to make the new G Le2 family PING’s highest performing women’s clubs to date, the company announced today. The complete line of clubs is available for pre-order at authorized PING golf shops around the world beginning today.
       
      “The G Le2 represents our continued commitment to providing women golfers of every skill level with premium, high-performance equipment optimized to their swing speeds,” said Stacey Pauwels, PING Executive Vice President and the granddaughter of PING founders Karsten and Louise Solheim, whose role includes overseeing the brand’s women’s initiatives.”
       
      “To achieve one of our performance goals of improving the feel of the club throughout the entire swing, we focused on making the clubs lighter overall,” Pauwels added.  “We integrated our extensive knowledge of materials and manufacturing processes with our proven design technologies to deliver measurable improvements throughout the set. At the same time, we wanted to present the new clubs in a visually appealing and confidence-inspiring way. We’re extremely excited about the results and look forward to bringing the G Le2 family to women golfers around the world.”
       
      Custom fit and custom built
      Along with ensuring measurable performance improvements throughout the G Le2 family, PING’s engineering team placed added importance on expanding the fitting options to help women find the ideal set to match their games.
       
      “Having equipment that is custom fitted to their games allows women to see improvement from every club in their bag,” said Pauwels. “The G Le2 family really emphasizes that need through loft, lie and length adjustability along with the shaft weight, flex and grip offerings. Once we know those specifications, finding the best combination of fairway woods, hybrids, irons and wedges during a fitting is the next step in the process.”
       
      “Because we custom build every club, we want women to know we’ll make them a set that best fits their game,” she said. “The key is determining the ideal set makeup that provides proper distance gaps between each club. That may be a full set or maybe a smaller set of a few metal woods, hybrids, irons, a wedge and a putter. Once we have all their fitting information, we can custom build the clubs to their precise specifications for maximum performance.”
      Lighter, faster, more forgiving driver
       
      The next generation of golf’s highest-performing women’s driver maximizes forgiveness and distance through a higher MOI, faster face and lighter overall weight. Its titanium head features a rounder, more aerodynamic shape to promote faster clubhead speeds. A thin, forged T9S+ face is optimized for the intended swing speed to increase flexing for more ball velocity and improved launch conditions. Internal heel-biased weighting helps ensure straighter ball flights and softer turbulators help frame the ball at address. Trajectory Tuning 2.0 in the G Le2 driver utilizes a new lightweight, aerodynamic hosel sleeve that provides eight positions for influencing ball flight through loft (±1.5°) adjustments.
       
      Faster faces, higher-launching, adjustable fairway woods
       
      A thinner, faster maraging steel C300 face, a significantly higher MOI and an 8-lobe adjustable hosel distinguish the G Le2 fairway wood from its predecessor. The added ball speed from the face technology increases distance and combines with the shallower face to launch the ball higher with greater forgiveness. An overall lighter club weight makes swinging the club easier with more clubhead speed for longer and straighter results. Internal weighting promotes right-to-left shot correction to keep shots on target. Available in 3, 5, 7 and 9 woods.
       
      Lighter, longer and straighter irons
       
      Precise and forgiving with a lighter overall club weight, G Le2 irons utilize COR-Eye Technology with a deep top-rail undercut to increase face flexing for more ball speed and higher max height. A tungsten toe weight helps increase MOI by 10% for greater forgiveness and a co-molded cavity badge ensures a pleasing feel and sound. Available in 6-9 iron, PW, UW, SW.
       
      Faster face, higher-launching hybrids with more fitting choices
       
      A thinner, hotter Carpenter 455 face and lighter club weight generate faster ball speeds while a lower, deeper CG helps increase the MOI to launch the ball high with greater forgiveness. The addition of a 34⁰ 7 hybrid expands the fitting options for women who prefer the technology of a hybrid in place of an iron. Softer crown turbulators help capture the ball at address and aid in alignment. Available in 4, 5, 6 and 7 hybrids.
       
      Adjustable putters with feel and forgiveness
       
      Enhanced feel and forgiveness and a new adjustable-length shaft improve performance and fitting opportunities in the three new G Le2 putters (Anser, Shea and Echo). A dual-durometer face insert -- engineered with TR face technology -- provides a soft front layer for precision and improved impact feel and a firmer second layer for control to improve consistency on putts of every distance. The easy-to-use adjustable shaft allows self-fitting for length between 31" and 35". A new, softer PP59 midsize grip improves feel and comfort.
       
      Lighter shafts, softer grips
      PING’s proprietary ULT240 Lite and Ultra Lite premium graphite shafts are standard throughout the G Le2 family and help bring down overall club weight while helping generate more clubhead speed and higher launch. The super-soft Golf Pride Tour Velvet Garnet 360 grip is available in three sizes (Blue -1/16", Red -1/32", Aqua -1/64").

      Do you remember when Baby Got Back and End of the Road topped the billboard charts? If so,  then you will remember when Lynx irons won a couple Major Championships in the early 90's with Fred Couples and Erine Els, and that the cat symbol was one of the coolest logos in golf. If you don't remember those songs...well there is always google!!!  
      LYNX disappeared from the mainstream for quite a while---you can read about LYNX announcing it's return to the US last year in this as usual great piece by John Barba The Cat is Back   
      So what does this mean for the forum.....a great testing opportunity as usual.   Lynx is providing 4 sets of the Prowler VT and 4 sets of the Black Cat irons for you to test, review and keep.    Not sure which one fits your game, take a few moments and check them out on the website--at the time this was posted the site is undergoing some maintenance, but you should still be able to see which model interests you.
