Is it just me or do these look strikingly similar?

The MIM process is interesting. As the years roll along, it will be fun to watch it evolve for use in golf club manufacturing.

The perimeter of the back of the two clubs looks similar in my opinion however from this angle the Forged Tour looks more along the lines of a game improvement club to me.

... Last I heard they are to be released sometime this fall:

Cobra Connect Challenge 5, which will be taking place next year. #4 just wrapped up and if you go into official member reviews, you can read the thread. Our testers did a great job this year. 

... I have been going to the PGA Show and writing reviews for almost 20 years now. I started with nothing other than belonging to the Illinois PGA and showed some examples of my writing style. I was t

It's closer to casting than it is forging.

I would love the opportunity to see some metallographic sections and just how close to forged microstructure they get.  According to Cobra, their MIM process is yielding nearly the same.  I suspect for all but the most discerning players, they could not tell the difference in a blind test.

Rick Shiels tested them and his only complaint was that they didn't feel soft at all. Said they felt hard. You can take that for what it's worth. They sure look nice.

I've also been hearing that they still feel really good. But again feel is the kind of rabbit hole that everyone can say this is better than but it boils down to personal preference.

More video reviews are popping up on YouTube and a common theme on the feel seems to be they feel soft but not as soft as something that is as purely forged as say a Taylormade P7MC.

Hit them yesterday. They are very nice! 

I would say slightly bigger and more forgiving than a traditional blade. More 921 Tour/P770/T100 than full blade. 

They feel fantastic though. Good sound. Loved hitting them.

I can definitely see them in that category of iron. I couldn't imagine them getting the same or better feel of a pure forging but something with a little bit of tech under the hood like the P770 and T100 makes sense.

Al has to be my favorite YouTube dude right now.  Love his stuff.  

I got to know Al two years ago and have spent time with him at the past 2 PGA Shows.  He is a much of a blast in person as his videos.  And also more importantly, a really genuine nice guy.

I've seen these but not hit, them.  I was a bit pleased to see they weren't as intimidating looking as I thought they would be.  Probably still a step above my paygrade, plus wanting to give the One Length a go next year, I'll end up with the RAD Speed, which I think they have slimmed down quite nicely.

Listen, if I do MIM and you do RAD in #CCC5 I won’t be upset in the least...

I’ve hit them. They feel very nice. I was super consistent with them, there’s definitely some tech in there for forgiveness. I didn’t hit them up against blades the likes of Srixon or Titleist, but they’re definitely worth demoing regardless.

Yes, CC5--assuming Cobra is game again this year, should have some exciting stuff to choose from. And I'm thinking positively that it will be 14 clubs this 🙂

That’s right, the putter! Hopefully Cobra is in for another year!

I would love to see everyone having to use the same putter. I think that would really make things interesting.

1. I was veryyyy happy that I got to keep my own putter! haha

2. The Cobra team is top notch over there.  It is an honor and privilege to compete in the #CCC.

3. Theses irons look sweet.  I love that they keep some familiarity with former CB irons they have made while incorporating the new MIM technology.  If it feels anything like the wedges they'll be great.  And if they perform any better than the Forged Tec's they'll absolutely have a top notch offering on their hands.  The Forged Tec's blew away my expectations during #CCC4 with consistent distance and performance, so I'd be interested to see what these can do!

I got a chance to hit the 7 iron the other day at the range. As a huge Cobra fan I was surprisingly disappointed in the feel to be honest. I will try again and see if I can hit one with the $ Taper that matches my King Forged CBs (they only had the Modus 120x available when I hit it).

Those are such great looking irons. Probably above my pay grade, but still looking forward to hearing your thoughts on them.
