Yes I did or else the 18th would have been two full 4 irons and a pitch to the green 🤣.

You also need to know that it is winter here so I get zero run and it was a balmy 50 degrees....

I've got a tee time early Saturday morning at a course I've never played before, so you're on! You gonna give me any strokes? 😜

For our part, the scores are handicapped. Not sure how that works with you challengers, however...

Good luck!

Well did not want to have to do irons only tomorrow at the course I’m playing but don’t think I’ll get out this weekend so the odds are in your favor!

SpeedZoneONE Irons

 

I am the only competitor in #MGSCOBRA2020 #COBRACONNECT4 competition to choose ONE length Hybrid, Irons, and Wedges #TeamCobraONE. I am using the SpeedZoneONE irons 5-SW. I have been eager to try the ONE length clubs since joining MGS and following the COBRACONNECT Challenges in previous years. The concept (has been around a long time) brought to the forefront by Bryson Dechambeau in recent years just makes a lot of sense to me. The transition to the ONE length SpeedZone irons has been a smooth event. The illustration below highlights the simplification of the golf swing using one length clubs.

image.png.1a96f7f17f52eec4647be8df5a5a4a92.png

I have been using game improvement irons since purchasing a set of Ping I3 3-PW irons in 2000. I then purchased a set of Titleist 716 AP1 5-PW irons in 2016. I tested the new Lynx Black Cat 5-PW irons in 2019. To date the SpeedZone irons are the easiest to hit and most forgiving that I have used. They are exceptionally long and high launching clubs.

LOOKS       3.5 Stars

IMG_2209.JPG.6ff1db3735e4b5985761196ce14a9fd7.JPG

 

SOUND and FEEL    4 Stars

Nice solid thunk and soft feel when struck solid then the ball races upward and long as it drops softly at its target.

BASIC CHARACTERISTICS  3.5 Stars

Very much a game improvement iron.

ON COURSE   5 Stars

I have never played any iron so easy to swing and hit with distance and accuracy.

Miscellaneous   5 Stars

The combination of game improvement iron and ONE length technology makes these clubs GAME CHANGERS.

PLAY IT TRADE IT    5 Stars

These irons will be in my bag until I find a better one length iron for my game.

OVERALL  4.5 Stars

For me it really all comes down to playability. These clubs instill confidence into every swing I take. More players should be playing ONE length clubs! It's that simple.

Nice write up David. I see you also change shafts between the mid and high irons.  Was this something that Cobra's fitting staff suggested; a common byproduct of the one length shaft option?

Oooooo I missed the shaft thing, that's a great question. Is it possibly standard to the one lengths? Oh and I totally agree, excellent write up @daviddvm.

 

Wait I answered my own question, here's what Cobra said...

KBS TOUR 80 (STEEL)

The lightest shaft in the KBS Tour line and is designed for players seeking higher trajectory, additional spin and maximum distance. Featured in the ONE Length 4-6 irons.

KBS TOUR 90 (STEEL)

Designed for players seeking high trajectory, additional spin and maximum distance. Featured in the 7-9 irons.

KBS WEDGE (STEEL)

A heavier 120 gram wedge shaft is featured in the ONE Length PW-SW and promotes a lower ball flight for more precision around the green.

Yeah, I just found John's B's review from last year.  Makes sense.
