Thanks to MGS, Cobra, and more than likely Golf Spy CG_2 for a great opportunity for a forum member here! 👍


Best of luck to all those who decide to enter and participate and I am looking forward to the reviews of the irons.


The reviews on both of these models are pretty impressive, so hopefully those who enter make the best choice for them.

Awesome contest, thanks Cobra and My Golf Spy!!

I chose this model because of the less offset and the view from the topline looks appealing.  As far as performance would like to see what kind of feel  I get from these and hopefully some solid shots.

1.  I selected the more traditionally-lofted Forged Tec model in the hopes of seeing moderate distance gains, but being more concerned with the feel and emphasis on ball-striking that Cobra is clearly targeting with the Forged Tec line. 

2.  Hayes / Carlisle, PA

3.  Mizuno JPX 919 Forged, 5-GW

4.  6.6

5.  Yes, I’d eagerly and enthusiastically participate in forum discussions concerning these irons!

Explain why you chose the model you did and what you'd hope to get out of them performance wise

-- I played the 2020 Cobra Forged Tec Irons and loved them. The new model has slimmed down the size and looks absolutely fantastic! I'm glad they broke it into two models in order to trim down one of the two and provide more options.

MGS and Cobra you guys rock our world year after year! This is pretty damn sweet! 

My choice

Forged Tec






  • Explain why you chose the model you did and what you'd hope to get out of them performance wise: I chose the King Forged Tec simply because for the past 3 years I've been stuck between player's distance and player's true blades. I've come to appreciate and love what both worlds have to offer, but now that I'm playing some no nonsense blades, I really miss what I loved about the distance sticks. And no it's actually not the distance.. Ultimately that small bit of forgiveness on days when all of my swing stars just aren't aligned, is something that I don't know if I can live without.  Being a Cobra fan boy and unofficial Puma ambassador, quite honestly I've been very much anticipating a review of the Forged Tec's as 2022 was set to be the year of new irons for me and the Forged Tec's are very high on my radar as they just check all of the boxes of what I love from both player's distance and blades. Additionally, I have a goal to get to a sub 4 index by the end of 2023 and I really feel that a player's distance set and more specifically a set like the Forged Tec's will play a big part in achieving that goal.

  • Will you agree to patriciate in discussions on the forum about your experience with the irons after receiving them: (earmuffs kids) um.. HELL YES! We would all be remiss to see this as a "giveaway" and not expect due diligence in providing a full review and Q&A to follow. 

Besides the driver and wedges, it's not too difficult to see that my bag is really missing a nice set of Cobra irons 😛

I chose the KING forged Tec X Irons. I’m looking for improved forgiveness and gains in distance over my current irons.

  • I chose the forged tec because I currently use a forged player irons and absolutely love them but could really use a little extra forgiveness. I have seen nothing but great reviews and would love to put them in the bag.

Good luck to all, and thanks Cobra, MGS, and Rob for putting this together! This is a heck of a contest, to say the least.

Which Model? I picked the Forged Tec X Irons as they match closely in both forgiveness and swing weight of the LTDx's I was able to play with during a fitting. The Forged Tec X seems to straddle the line between game-improvement and players distance,  and would serve as an iron to grow into as my game improves. Further, I've only ever played graphite shafts in my irons and would enjoy the opportunity to game and compare steel shafts that I think of as being reserved for "stronger" and "better" players. If living up to the expectations of your clubs isn't reason enough to make you hit the gym and practice greens, I don't know what is! 😂

In short, I think the Forged Tec X irons punch above their weight class. I'd love to see if they'd help me do the same.

Name: Mark - Batavia, IL

Current Irons: Callaway X-20 Irons (5-SW), stock graphite shafts.

Handicap: No official handicap for me yet, but unofficially trending to 22, down from an alleged 45+ early this year. Can the Forged Tec X Irons help push me sub 20 by the end of the year?

Agree to participate in discussing their performance? Of course! I've had a blast this year writing official reviews, unofficial reviews, and tracking my improvement progress. Cobra really won me over with the LTDx driver this year, and I'd love to dive in on more of their products.

One of the most anticipated irons of this year was Cobra's release of the 2022 Forged Tec line, which expanded to included the Forged Tec X model. 

Read about them  Here in My Golf Spy's First Look piece. These irons are stunning looking and in the case of the Forged Tec X are packed with enough help for the player that handicaps from scratch to 20 can probably play them. 



Cobra is going to give one lucky Forum Member a chance to win a set of their choice, you will be able to choose between

  • Forged Tec
  • Forged Tec X

Entering will require a little research and work on your end, but it's well worth it to get a chance to put these in your bag.

To Enter you must be a registered member of the forum.

Then complete ALL of the steps below:


  • First Head to the Cobra website  https://www.cobragolf.com/golf-clubs/irons
  • Research both irons and select which set you'd like
  • Build a set (using any no upcharge options) and take a screen shot and post it in this thread.

Then answer the following questions in the same post that you put your bag. 

  • Explain why you chose the model you did and what you'd hope to get out of them performance wise
  • List your first name/city state (US Only entries)
  • What current irons you're playing
  • Handicap
  • Will you agree to patriciate in discussions on the forum about your experience with the irons after receiving them.


That's it.  A big Thank You to Cobra for providing this opportunity!

A winner will be selected by August 12th and notified in this thread and via PM.  Good Luck!






I chose the X because I realize despite being a decent player I still benefit from the game improvement iron.  I think they would give me better feel than the Cobra irons I have today.

I would definitely go with the King Forged Tec because they would be most similar to my Srixon irons, and they have a reduced offset, and thinner topline than the X. Performance-wise, I think I’d be looking to get more forgiveness than my Srixons, and likely a little more ball speed. I’m not hitting many greens with the Srixons, so I’m looking for some help there!  I’ve always wanted to try Cobra irons against my gamers because Cobra is putting-out some great looking product that performs, according the reviews I’ve read. This would be a great head-to-head battle to help get my hcp back in the 3s!!!

Super excited for this! May the luckiest guy/gal win. Here is my responses.

  • I’ve been very interested in hollow back designs. My current irons have tungsten weighting and I love the feel!
  • Andrew / McAllen, TX
  • Srixon ZX5 (5-PW)
  • 22
  • I would love to review this set and cross it against my own irons. The ZX5 series is know for it’s feel. I want to see what a full hollow body plays like and sounds against my own.

  • I'd go with the Forged Tec X because I think the extra forgiveness would benefit my game the most and I've never tried a hollow body iron but have been very curious about them.  I absolutely love the looks of these as they are just the right size and hide all of the technology very well.  The idea of playing a game improvement club that others might mistake as a players iron is very appealing.

I can no longer play steel shafts and will happily pay the $100 upcharge for the KBS Tour graphite shafts.  If that's not possible, I understand. 

  • I'm choosing the Tec X for their more aggressive lofts and my interest in seeing if Cobra's design offers a good balance between PD and GI categories.  Most everyone loses distance to Father Thyme and getting some added distance would be helpful.

First a big thank you to Cobra Golf and MGS for providing this opportunity.



I chose the Forged Tec because I am a low single digit handicap player and play better with a model that has less off-set and a thinner top line. I have also never played a forged iron before. I would like to see if this iron set can help me remove that last little bit from my handicap to get me to scratch from my current .6. 

Tom, Greeneville TN

Currently play Sub 70 699 Pro Irons

Current handicap .6

I most certainly will participate in discussions on the forum about my experience with these irons if selected. 

Thank you again for this opportunity.

  • I chose the Forged Tec X because i believe it fits my needs and game the best. I love the topline look of a players irron, but i need the forgiveness of a game jmprovement iron. I think this is the best of both worlds. I also made them 1*weaker to come closer to matching my current set.
