COBRA GOLF’S NEW KING FORGED TEC IRONS OFFER BETTER PLAYERS A POWERFUL COMBINATION OF ACCURACY, FEEL, DISTANCE AND FORGIVENESS IN AN EYE-CATCHING DESIGN
The KING Forged TEC Irons Combine Classic Shaping with Distance & Forgiveness In Variable and ONE Length Designs
COBRA Golf today introduced its next generation of KING Forged TEC Irons, featuring a traditional muscle-back shape with a hollow design for softer feel and improved power preferred by better players, available in a variable or ONE Length set make-up. Fusing a classic look with modern, cutting-edge face, finish and feel technologies, the KING Forged TEC irons provide golfers with the ideal balance of precision and distance.
A sleek, muscle-back shape and sophisticated design of the Forged TEC Irons encloses an unassuming hollow body that delivers low CG and helps maximize distance, forgiveness and playability. A hollow cavity is infused with energizing foam microspheres that fine-tune acoustics and create the softer feel that better players desire while supporting a thin PWRSHELL Face for increased ball speeds. An updated forged face insert creates a larger Sweet Zone and return area for higher launch and faster ball speeds in a players iron. A tungsten toe weight centers the CG behind the hitting zone to maximize distance and increase precision for attacking pins, even on off-center hits.
Like a majority of COBRA equipment, the Forged TEC irons will feature the innovative COBRA CONNECT™ Powered by Arccos allowing users to track their accuracy and distance using the Arccos Caddie app on a smart device. Electronically embedded sensors in the grip automatically record the distance and accuracy of every shot so golfers can track their improvements round-to-round.
The KING Forged TEC ONE Length irons offer an added dimension of consistency, as COBRA engineers have manipulated the design of each iron to match the weight and length of a 7-iron, allowing for one simple, repetitive set up and swing motion to reduce variability and increase consistency between clubs. This is primarily achieved through matching 7-iron head and swing weights in every iron to create a consistent feel throughout the set. Weight is added to the ONE Length long irons to compensate for shorter (37.50”) shafts and to match 7-iron swing weight, while weight is removed from the short irons & wedges to compensate for longer shafts while still delivering traditional 7-iron swing weight. In addition, lie angles have been adjusted to optimize ball flight in a ONE Length set configuration. Long irons utilize more upright lie angles, while the short irons and wedges have slightly flatter lie angles delivering more consistent trajectory and ball flights. Lighter long iron shafts encourage easy launch while heavier wedge shafts promote more control into and around the green.
The Forged Tec ONE Length irons are available through stock in an 7-piece (4-PW) set in stiff and regular, in both right and left-handed versions (graphite is available through custom in x-stiff, stiff and regular). The steel version come equipped with a KBS $-Taper Lite (115- stiff, 110 – reg, 120 – wedge) shaft with Lamkin Crossline COBRA CONNECT grips in a blue colorway.
The Forged Tec variable length irons (MAP: $1,099 steel; $1,199 graphite) are available through stock in an 8-piece (4-GW) set in both right and left-hand versions. The steel KBS $-Taper Lite shaft is offered in both regular (R110) and stiff (S115) flexes. Graphite offerings in Project X Catalyst 80 in regular, stiff and x-stiff flexes are available through custom only. Each set comes stock with Lamkin Crossline COBRA CONNECT grips in black.
The Forged Tec irons in variable and ONE Length will be available at retail and at cobragolf.com beginning November 1, 2019. For more information on the entire KING family of products, visit cobragolf.com.

Hello all! Thought I would chime in on this putter since I've owned it for a few months now.
I had been using a Ping Ketch mallet putter since the beginning of the year. (I am relearning the game left handed this year due to a back issue and decided to do so with the putter as well) I had been putting fairly well with it but found it a bit hard to line up and I didn't love it, like all putters I have owned. I saw the testing and reviews on this putter and decided to buy it online sight unseen.
I tend to like a longer putter and got it in the 35” model.
(Aside: A member of the forum let me know that it could be bought here in Canada on golfworks.ca as we don't have Dick's here, so thank you whoever you were. It was $130 Canadian. It arrived super well packed, maybe better than any other golf club I've ever gotten in the mail. There were two small scratches on the putter shaft. I decided to email golfworks and see what they had to say about it. The service was incredible and the best I've ever had online. They got back to me within an hour with an apology and said they would ship out a new one that day and they had a shipping label for me to return mine with. For me the scratch's weren't a big deal and I offered them to refund me $15-20 and I'd keep it. They did me even better and gave me their cost on it and refunded the difference! Unreal service. I will buy all my grips etc. from them going forward.)
Ok, back to the review!
The putter fit my eye immediately. I have only ever had one other golf club where I just knew I was going to hit it well and that I'd love it at first sight. It was a Cobra knockoff driver I won in the 90's in a closest to the pin contest. This putter was the same way. I just knew I was going to love it and play well with it. I have played ten rounds so far and only six three putts. My first round with it I swooped and won three skins with a twenty foot putt and did it again later in the round with a thirty five foot putt for three more skins (The guys weren't mocking me anymore for having a Tommy Armour putter after that haha)! I do not normally sink many long putts. My longest previous this year wouldn't have been any longer than fifteen feet.
It is really well balanced, the pistol grip is actually very comfortable (I may replace it with something different down the road, we'll see) and I think it looks good. The head cover I can't say the same for, it's pretty ugly and doesn't fit on that well. That's a fairly minor issue, especially considering the price and performance of this putter.
On long putts I can easily line it up and it's no different on the short ones. The feel is just right for me, not too firm and not too soft, so they got the insert just right. I just have so much confidence with this thing that I can't say enough about it. I would have paid five times as much if I knew it was going to make this kind of difference in my game. My putting stats show that I've dropped almost four strokes off my rounds. I was averaging thirty six PPR and now it's down to thirty two I took no lessons and used no training aids. It was all the putter. If someone would have told me a putter would shave three to four strokes off my game I would have laughed at you!
Bottom line is I love this putter. What a value the guys at Dicks have come up with....they made a world class putter for the $100 range. Thank you MY GOLF SPY, without this site I would never have given this a chance. You saved me spending $400+ on an Evenroll, so thank you guys for that.
Looks – 7/10
Feel – 9/10
Alignment – 10/10
Value – 11/10
Overall – 9/10 – I highly, highly recommend this putter.
This review coincided with the National D7 Challenge that Wilson Staff ran through the first 3 months of the season. To be eligible for the testing, forum members had to go to a Wilson Demo Day or local golf store and demo the D7 iron and see how much distance they gained.
As a result the selected members received a full set of D7 irons. This testing is also a milestone for MGS of sorts as it marks the first official club test for our women members. So we're excited to have a couple of them chiming in on what we are sure will be some very helpful and insightful reviews.

In the golf club world, where most companies insist on renaming or launching a new name after one or two iterations of a club, to see a company stick with a name into the 4th generation....well that must say something about the winning formula they have. Below is a video from Cleveland Golf on it's RTX4 wedge.
Then we have four members of our forum who are in the process of testing these wedges to see how they perform for their games. See their initial thoughts in the Stage 1 posts below, and follow their on course and on range experiences with them in this thread over the next 4 weeks or so.
