Seeing @jlukes pictures from his fitting got me thinking.... Even though the copper irons were likely outside the scope of the test, did anyone test them anyway, just for kicks? If so, was there an appreciable difference in feel?

They’re not made from copper. They are just finished with a brushed copper pvd. Identical construction and feel to the chrome irons

Go for it! I’d be curious is they are raw copper or protected? Green irons over time would look strange

Based off what I'm reading and what Tony with MGS posted, it is a PVD based copper colored finish, not actual copper. Still snazzy looking. I'd expected the color finish to be protected like any other club.

Not actual copper. Just a pvd finish that will likely wear off with time like a pvd black finish

Did they give you guys ordering clubs lead times? I know if I try to order it is 10 plus weeks for a stock set. It's time to update my single lengths but I hate waiting.

We aren’t being lumped in with general consumer orders, I’ll just leave it at that

I'm wondering the same thing, although I'm sure an OEM is prepped and ready to support a test like this.

I did notice the guys are being asked to list 4 different grip choices; I'm guessing supply issue?  (I'm sure no one is complaining though...)

Yes. There is a rubber shortage and grips are one of the main reasons oems have such long lead times these days

Will that bother you much if/when the PVD starts to wear?  I game black Vokey's and the wear doesn't bother me at all, but I guess that's a thing for some...

Last time I was in PGASS in Natick they had a set of used Forged Tec one-lengths on the used rack.... no wait time there!  Well other than maybe a grip change, they had the Bryson Jumbo ones on there.

Not on the face or sole, but the wear from bag chatter would bother me. I dint mind it on black wedges, but it would just seem odd on copper irons.  Plus I don’t like the look at address

here’s a link from wrx  (gasp) that shows the bag chatter wear  I was talking about. The guy that posted these said he’d only used them for a few rounds at this point

Ha. Yeah, I tried really hard to love my SpeedZone one lengths, but I just could not get the 9i thru GW figured out. ☹️ Went back and forth on doing the 4-7i in one lengths, and 8-GW in variable lengths ... but moving back to variable lengths in a full set  

Currently awaiting a custom order on Ping’s G425, and at week 6 since the order. Once I get em, the Cobra’s will be on the buy/sell/trade page.

Seeing those pics does worry me a little bit, but it will really depend on how I like it in person. This won't be a deal breaker for me at least. I will just have to walk so slowwwww and neverrr have my irons bang together. Might become target golf for the group behind me.

I wish they had been open in 2019!  About a month ago.  Not sure how big the market is on single-lengths.... might be worth a call to see if they're still there.  

I want to go stop by there soon, I'll take a peek and let you know if they're still there if I do.

Recently I went in the opposite direction. The 8-SW are money for me. It is the 5-7 that give me trouble so I went variable length with those. Problem with that is I hit everything fat with the variable lengths after hitting the one lengths.

The grip industry is very delayed. All the bug box stores around me have such slim pickings on grips if any at all.

Great, ask the sales guy if variable lie angles are needed on the one lengths when all clubs are swung between 81-82 MPH? If he cannot answer that ask how much toe droop each one length shaft has when swung at these speeds. If he can't answer that then walk away.

So I noticed it during my fitting but didn’t think anything of it, but I learned today that Cobras standard is two layers of tape under the grip! No wonder why the grips felt thicker!  Need to revise my order to specifically call out to only use one layer of tape!
