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. 

Have you had any that seemed to be hot? Besides something like a flier lie I feel the distance has been very consistent. That’s something I was keeping an eye on as added distance is good, but only if it’s consistent!

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!

Looks like you got some pokes out there with the hybrid! It’s amazing what leaving a full shot will do, I think that’s for sure going to be something I have to implement to my game.

Either way good round! Looks like the putting game to play today for you as well!

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. 

Taylor meadows is a lovely course, it has been particularly well manicured as of late. 

The clear weather and blue skies, make it easy to get beautiful pictures. 

I've played lumberjack golf on those trees many of times🤣

That’s great to hear. I think it takes a lot of work to make a distance iron that doesn’t have them. It seems Cobra designed these very well.

Yes! The hybrid is coming around. Really glad we did the irons-only challenge because it forced me to learn to hit a club I otherwise wouldn't use much at my home course.

Off the tee today had shots of 222, 261, 233 and 257. I think on a course with shorter and dry fairways, it could be a great fairway finder that could go 230+ easily and consistently.

Like @B.Boston, I have found it has a little left in it, but overall it seems to be a really solid club.

I wish I could have ordered it 2* flat like our irons! Maybe that would be all it needed.

I ended up shooting the most satisfying 88 I can recall on the University of Illinois Orange Course, white tees (6638 yards) in 10-15 mph winds. Rating/slope 71.7/127.

UofIScorecard_1024x513.jpg.af175fa80d8a180070b15ac92d2a36e0.jpg

Clearly doesn't beat @daviddvm, but I'll take it. There were too many long par 4's that were 3H, 3H and still short of the green (and of course they all seemed to be into the wind). My current Arccos HC is 11.7 and my league handicap for 9 is an 8. It was a lot of fun, but mentally a tough round, everything was a grind, especially after I developed a case of the pull/hooks for a few holes. Here is a pic of the first tough chip I had to attempt with a PW. I barely missed left with a hard kick down the hill. Yes, that is the top of the flag you can barely see.

20200808_134017.jpg.d19d230e8437799adafb02cebbb4ff6f.jpg

Result was better than I would have thought.

20200808_134112.jpg.eb3dc870f6d4f40b0406bdd2a0d5818b.jpg

I avoided bunkers until 17, which was a disaster. Two attempts to get out ending up with a double.

The greens had a lot of slope to them, but I still managed to end up with 33 putts. In the pic below, the peak of the green was nearly 6 feet above my feet. I'm not a fan of using PW exclusively around the green, especially since I couldn't really practice, but it worked out ok. My chipping handicap was 18 today.

Hope you fun Max, it was eye opener for me!

B.Boston’s #CobraConnect Challenge 4 Review – Forged Tec Irons Edition

958C9ADC-2C52-4176-8BDB-4BA113640C60.jpeg.821af80a90c0ccc520cfe40310ead3f0.jpeg

Already onto week 3 of the competition and our second weekly review!  This week’s challenge is all about iron play so its fitting that this week’s review is on the Forged Tec Irons!  I am including my thoughts on all of the Forged Tec irons including the GW even though I won’t be using that during the Irons Only rounds.   

I was chosen to compete this year with the Forged Tec irons.  I was originally fit into the Nippon Modus 120X shafts but they were unavailable at the time of build, as were the C-Taper Lite X I could have gone with (Cody got the last set of those it seems!) so mine were built with the ProjectX LZ 6.5 shafts.  I had at least hit those before in Mark’s P790’s and liked the way they felt.  I built my set trying to maintain tighter gaps as I play a 5-wood as my longest club outside of the driver.  That meant going 5-GW in these Forged Tec irons, along with 3 MIM Black wedges, a Speedzone 4-Hybrid, and the aforementioned Speedzone 5-wood. 

89F610EE-D80F-4EE5-89A6-52203C16DD67.jpeg.470ba0c19152ac02a8b1db2f406ac600.jpeg

Looks – 4/5 Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐

The Forged Tec irons look sharp.  Largely finished in a smooth Satin they lean Modern and Technologically Advanced versus a more traditional Chrome finish.  There is a nice polished detail along the perimeter of the back of the iron to give the finish a little depth.  At first I thought this polished area would be to help blend and shrink the top line, but I don’t think it really comes into play at all.  Speaking of the top line, I would say these are on the thin side of moderate.  Same goes to the offset.  Overall They have a bit more than my old AP2’s in both departments.  Down at address they look powerful and forgiving.  I can’t comment on the 4 iron since I don’t have one, but that back of the 5 iron is not visible past the top line when I address the ball.  So far the finish is holing up very well, with some wear on the dark gray finish of the face, but minimal wear and scratching otherwise, which surprised me.  I would prefer these in a more traditional chrome finish as I think over several seasons that would hold up better, but these are so well finished I almost don’t care.  I will say the bladed profile of the hollow body design looks awesome in the bag and is better than even the players cavity of the AP2.  Something about those clean lines just looks flat out awesome.

8 Iron and 5 Iron Comparison:

7B06CDB8-58E6-4B1E-9225-3CBEF116C68A.jpeg.6bb3e4f69bc2bdf48d9cede0ddad271d.jpeg

Sound & Feel - 5/5 Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The Cobra Forged Tec sound and feel solid.  On the higher pitched side due to the hollow nature of the clubs, But solid.  Pure struck shots give a satisfying thud and I haven’t had a shot yet that I couldn’t tell you where I struck it.  Whatever it is they used to make these hollow irons feel as solid as they do is working wonders.  I’ve hit a few off the toe that I should would feel a lot worse than they did.  I wasn’t so sure on these right away as they’re a big change in weight from my old AP2s  but I quickly grew to really enjoy the sound, feel, and feedback I was getting.

Basic Characteristics - 4/5 Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐

These have been playing great for me.  I was fit at my usual specs of -1/2 and 2 flat.  I knew I was moving up in weight on the shaft, and felt that was due anyway with the evolution of my swing.  I will not complain about that as all with the on-course performance I am seeing from the Cobra KING Forged Tec Irons.  I’ll just comment here that on top of the added shaft weight, it seems the heads themselves are heavier than what I had before.  Now my old set was MOI matched which leads to lower swing weight and total weight at the long end of the bag, but even comparing my 8 iron with Mark’s P790 in the same shaft, both with Arccos (his a screw in sensor) mine was 7-8 grams heavier.  The sole width is a little greater than the AP2’s I was using and it also appears that these have more bounce.  I am finding that I have greater feel for where the club head is and turf interaction has been stellar.

69C0E44A-D63E-4C1D-A3C1-3FE020501C6B.jpeg.76f6a203596d8d887c07b1531b21fffe.jpeg

 

On Course Performance – 5/5 Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I am loving these irons on course.  At the start of the competition I was worried that the jacked lofts and stiffer shafts were going to lead to my hitting the ball low on my already lower trajectory.  Particularly in the long irons.  Boy was I wrong.  These appear to be hitting all of the windows I’d expect (maybe even a touch higher flight than my AP2s) and as an added benefit my flight tends to be a slight draw vs a slight fade.  I like this because it’s always been easier for me to work the ball left to right than right to left, so If my ‘neutral swing’ can be a little more draw biased to start I’ll take it. 

I’m not going to jump into going 7 vs 7 of my old clubs since the lofts are different.   I’ll say these are flying where I would expect them too for the loft, but in a higher window than I was expecting.  I also want to add and that I have not experienced any “hot” shots that fly significantly further than expected.  If I’ve overshot a green so far with them it’s because I took too much club or didn’t account for the wind or slope appropriately.

I’ve nearly had a hole-in-one on a bad strike and have had a significant increase in birdie looks on par 3s.  I can recall 5 or 6 shots with these irons (including a towering 8 iron that moved back 10-15 inches from the pitch mark) that have been pin high.  A quick look at my scoring from the baseline period and my performance to-date shows it all.  More Birdies, Less Bogey or worse.  It’s hard to argue with that!

 

Miscellaneous – 4/5 Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐

I’m going to dock one point here because the grip on the PW is about 30 degrees out of alignment, and I wish they had used a more traditional chrome finish on the sole and face.  But those are just my preferences really.

Play It or Trade It - 5/5 Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Play it 110%.  These are some seriously good irons if you are in the market you owe yourself to give them a swing.  Even if I look into the Modus 120X after the competition it will be in these heads.  And if the performance holds as it has been its going to be difficult for me to justify a change.  I’ll be looking at the data and feel of the two side by side before making a decision there.  But I may have stumbled into something that fits really well for me with the PX LZ 6.5 shafts

KING Forged Tec Irons Overall Rating - 4/5 Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐

TL;DR? Want to know if the Cobra KING Forged Tec Irons are the real deal?

·       Drop Dead Sexy blade profile with consistent distance and forgiveness built into the design? ✔️

·       Solid sound and feel that is sublime when on center and lets you know where your misses are without hurting your feeling about it?  ✔️

·       More Birdies, Less Bogies? ✔️

·       Staying in the Bag? ✔️

Back from vacation feeling refreshed. Thanks to @GolfSpy MPR for covering this week. The handoff was perfect timing as his newest family addition arrived so I guess I'll be repaying the favor for some of his tasks 🙂

Catching back up on this thread was a lot. Just trying to keep up with this week's member challenge, wanted to offer a reminder; we've developed a special formula for these challenges to normalize across all golfers, HC, course difficulty, etc. So you guys need to submit your HC, Slope/Rating of the course played, and Gross Score. As you can imagine, there's some missing data. Here's what I've got for this week's challenge....

@goaliewales14 @xOldBenKenobiX and @MaxEntropy submitted their rounds 100%

@palvord @toehold57 and @yungkory have yet to play.

@gavinski91 @Erik-M @Lacassem and @Nunfa0 need to add their HC, Slope, and Rating

@HeathS16 almost walked through the door providing his Slope, but I still need your HC and Rating.

 

 

Is there Anything/Anyone else that I missed?

Back from vacation feeling refreshed. Thanks to @GolfSpy MPR for covering this week. The handoff was perfect timing as his newest family addition arrived so I guess I'll be repaying the favor for some of his tasks 🙂

Fun indeed, painful afterwards, not the best idea to play this and the HRC challenge at the same time. 

My wrists and elbows took a beating.

Got a little more sore than I normally get after my rounds. 

I had to concentrate so hard, specially on the partial shots, my head is hurting too. 

Time for a cold beer I guess.

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!

20200809.gif.d45d3d0507d2a80dcdf2607334cda0d3.gif

I get what you mean by leaving full shots into the green, the plan was to leave 100 yard shots on each green, but the best laid plans went off the window pretty quickly.
