Anyone who challenged me is looking good so far! 🤣 84 still stands as my best effort, with one more round to be played.

Just couldn't get going this morning, had a bad case of the hooks and was something like 10 or 11 over by the time I got to No. 8 tee. Tends to happen when you lose two balls on the first three holes, and 40 (!) putts didn't help any. Just an awful day on the greens again.

I did end up playing much better from hole 11 on, parred 11 (rare for me) after a nice tee shot with my 2 hybrid and birdied the 500-something yard par 5 No. 14 hole for the first time this year, going 2 hybrid, 6 iron layup in front of water, 8 iron, 1 putt. 

Also hit these two monsters off the tee with the 2 hybrid on 17 and 18. I think it's earning a spot in my bag post-challenge.

Don’t give up hope yet! You still got a chance to pummel these fools today challenging your calves to a duel!
 

make us proud out there.

Nice review @B.Boston! Do you see the Forged Tec irons strictly reserved for better players or could a high-handicapper consider these irons as well?

I think these have a good amount of forgiveness built into them. They look to me to be a touch larger overall then my 714 AP2s so I think they would work for a wide range of handicaps. The sole also feels to me to be really forgiving. I’m usually a digger in softer conditions and I’ve only taken two or three deep divots that I used to see regularly with the AP2. 
 

I have hit a few way off the toe that have held the line strongly and lost an acceptable amount of distance.

Round stats, the fairway misses were mostly in the first cut, so overall a much better round. 

Plus I got out of 3 sand traps with 1 shot on each, pretty good for the pitching wedge. Screenshot_20200809-101322.jpg.76db772819219237ab053723a7b7bdb8.jpgScreenshot_20200809-104555.jpg.0056425d707d0463f7f5f1de73e9f125.jpgScreenshot_20200809-104555.jpg.0056425d707d0463f7f5f1de73e9f125.jpgScreenshot_20200809-104613.jpg.85880cb2c9e2ddd42ca458052e59d003.jpg

I have hit a few way off the toe that have held the line strongly and lost an acceptable amount of distance.

My current interest in irons are those in the fairly new "players distance" category.  It seems most all of the OEM's are vying for a solid spot in this market space.  It's a large part of the bell-curve and captures what has been, IMO, a gap for we consumers who improve our game and want to move into the "players" category clubs. Trying to find the perfect balance between looks, distance, and shot shaping, while still offering forgiveness, is no doubt challenging.  But it seems the OEM design teams are making headway - and it would appear that Cobra has found a winner with the new Forged Tec irons (gushing reviews https://www.cobragolf.com/king-forged-tec-irons).  And, I don't know this Chris M., but we share the same plight 😕

image.png.f79888b50017b4da56b103973a6dad6f.png

I'm definitely including these in my next iron fitting.  My wife dosen't know it yet, but she's giving me a complete bag fitting at the Tru-Spec facility in Scottsdale next winter - early B-day present 🙂.

Based on my demo tests with the i500's, I think this is the club category I can move into - think I left some opportunity on the table when I made the switch.  I'd like to hear from those of you in this challenge and others on the forum who have recently ventured from "game improvement" into the players distance market. Who else has tested the Forged Tec irons and how do they compare to other PD irons you've tried/played?

I think if you really break it down these hollow body players distance irons are really your normal Game Improvement irons with an improved appearance package (Less offset, no cavity back, improved top line). They figured out how to get rid of the deep cut cavities and still put weight where they want it.

Did I mention they look great?

Good points.  I forgot to mention, but think it is the case, that many who have been playing in the "players" realm are moving into the PD category.  For them wanting more forgiveness but having to jump to GI designs is too large a gap as well.  It seems the PD market is a sweet spot.

Agree 100% with you there. Sweet spot indeed!

Super hard round, shot an 85. 

So this is officially my best round of the year.

It was an absolute perfect day, I've not played this hard in a long time.

Great round and I'm going to second the notion that you played a beautiful course. Some of those tree lined tee shots would make me a little nervous.

Tied myself with another 84. Much better round today though, no three-putts, 2 hybrid was pretty good off the tee, and irons were probably the best they've been since I got the clubs. 

Unfortunately hooked my tee shot into a bush on No. 14, cost me two strokes. Also, I wasn't really smart about leaving full pitching wedge distance in, which hurt me on several holes where I just didn't have a great touch from inside 85 yards. Ready to have my 58 wedge back!

I think these have a good amount of forgiveness built into them. They look to me to be a touch larger overall then my 714 AP2s so I think they would work for a wide range of handicaps. The sole also feels to me to be really forgiving. I’m usually a digger in softer conditions and I’ve only taken two or three deep divots that I used to see regularly with the AP2. 
 

I have hit a few way off the toe that have held the line strongly and lost an acceptable amount of distance.

I’d agree with this assessment. I’d put the handicap limit at about 15 though. I’d agree that they are similar in forgiveness to GI clubs, just in a nicer package. 

Yesterday, in our skins game I completely chunked a 5 iron off of the 10th tee (195 yd par 3) that ended up only 10 feet short of the green, and all my playing partners couldn’t believe how far it flew for such a bad strike. Turns out that anti-divot sole I was complaining about came in handy. These things are certainly very forgiving, huge difference compared to my I200s for sure.
