It was the CCC4 competition during the Covid summer of ‘20 that kept me sane, entertained, engaged and really brought my attention to Cobra as a serious OEM iron player … so much so that I bought their OL F9 irons when they went on sale.

While it was a fun experiment, over time, the OL concept just didn’t gel for me. But it was Boston Brian’s love affair with the Forged Tec that caught my attention (not the fact that he won 🙄😂) … plus the speed foam tech in the irons and more importantly, the combo “phorged” tec is highly appealing to me.

- Explain why you chose the model you did and what you'd hope to get out of them performance wise: chose the Forged Tec for it’s more in line with what I’m looking for in an iron set. Less offset, modern lofts that are in line with my existing set, and all of that tech in a more compact players profile. Plus, I can’t help but imagine that they’re just confidence inducing once held in your hands and standing over a ball. 

- List your first name/city state (US Only entries): Mike in Charleston, SC

- What current irons you're playing: PING G425 irons

- Handicap: 14

- Will you agree to patriciate in discussions on the forum about your experience with the irons after receiving them: for this, absolutely, yes! 

Love the “phorged” thought.  And yes in a crazy year CCC4 was a fantastic crutch.

He wouldn’t have won though without my serious assistance in the partner challenge

    • The prior generation of Forged Tec irons were too large, fly too high, and don't have enough workability.  Those appear to be now the Forged Tec X irons.  The Forged Tec should be close to my current irons.  While they should be close to my current irons, I'm hoping to get just a bit more forgiveness that my current irons.  I would also hope to see the feel improved with the 5x forging and new foam technology.

It is my understanding that if you’re a previous CCC4 weekly swag bag competition winner, such as winning a sweat pair of Puma shoes (I think???), you’re ineligible for this competition and your entry will be withdrawn. 🤪

I kid! I kid! 

But, I do think a friendly 18 hole match ply competition should be arranged between the winner and @GolfSpy_BOS

COBRA! - Just amazing support and opportunities to the MGS folks here throughout the years - thanks for this chance.

So I might be off here, but checking the site, it looked like I had to go to custom for chance at Left Handed configuration.  I could be doing something wrong and that wouldn't surprise me.

I chose the Forged Tec as I like the smaller off set as well as the thinner top line.  I don't need much help with distance, which the X would add just a hair more.

* Gotta go with the "X"!!

.. Used to have a set of Cobra King OS irons with Recoil shafts and I still regret trading them (even posted about it in a "Club 'Ho Regret" thread 😂). Shudda kept them...

.. Anyway, reading the description of the "X" these definitely seem well-suited for me .. I need the extra forgiveness / GI qualities and want help getting more distance. And better dispersion, too, if we can get all that cool stuff in one slick package 😉

.. Really like hollow body irons - first "real" set was TaylorMade R9s. Really like forged irons, too - tried to game the Apex CF16s - and while I could hit them ok enough finally admitted to myself it was more vanity and I needed to go more GI.

* Chuck on Long Island, NY

* PXG 0211 DC (MMT 60g/A)

* Unofficial 20 - don't maintain a handicap.

.. Average recreational bogey golfer constantly working on my swing through lessons and practice .. ball striking very sloooowly but steadily improving .. shoot anywhere in the 90s and been trending more lo 90s.

* Absolutely agree to discussing the irons!!

.. Have been an active forum member for several years - and a product tester/reviewer - and really enjoy talking about and learning about golf equipment! 👍

 

**NOTE: I selected two upcharge options for graphite shafts and my preferred grips - will very happily cover the upcharge amounts if chosen!!! Thx!

* NOTE 2: Length = No Change (not -1/4")

I'd have loved to get my hands on the forged tec before I bought my T100s. I really liked the MIMs when I hit them. I don't know if I give them enough of a test right now to do it justice.

First off thanks to Cobra for being awesome to the forum over the years from the full club tests to just drivers. Secondly I want to than Rob for being a great guy and helping get opportunities like this.
 

  • Going to have to go with the Tec X because even though I like to think I can hit the ball better than I do I am still a higher handicap player and need to give myself a better chance to score better
  • Thomas but most call me Tom or Tommy and I’m from Orwigsburg, PA
  • Currently gaming Sub70 699 pro irons
  • Handicap-20 to 25 been shooting lower scores but my app I use hasn’t lowered it much due to not enough rounds to lower my hcp
  • Will you agree to patriciate in discussions on the forum?? Oh heck yea this place is my only source of social media and I’ve done multiple reviews for the forum where I do my best to post videos and pictures often to keep people interested in what I test or use. 

couldn’t fit that I’m right handed on this picture dang phone wasn’t let me fit it all in

I'd be down for any type of competition!  I still use a lot of the previous challenges we've had as practice rounds.  A buddy and I did the can't reuse it until all the others are used challenge are a par 3 course not that long ago.

That one was a blast. So difficult. Remember I had to hit a 3W out of a greenside bunker.

Irons only was a fun round too, should do that again

Kudos to Cobra and to MGS for the opportunity.  I'll miss reading some of the crazy competition from previous years, but glad to see Cobra still participate.  These irons are too good looking not to get some chatter on the forum.

IMG_0935.jpeg.a6192ef8a92c48cacc5fa3ae2bac8574.jpeg

  • Explain why you chose the model you did and what you'd hope to get out of them performance wise - I jumped onto the one length bandwagon with the Cobra OL F8s, and currently play (fell in love with) the Cobra OL Forged TEC BLACK.  Its an awesome looking club.  For a while I IMG_0936.jpeg.3d40851b3ea71ffaac01b4a022729423.jpegwas afraid it was too much of a player's or low handicappers club for me, so went to the F9s.  But once I got my handicap under 10, and kept it there I bought a used set of FTB's and had them reshafted with some MMTs more appropriate for me.

    I think some people believe you have to be a low handicap player to game these types of irons - and I don't really think that is the case.  It may long like it belongs in the hands of  a 2 or 3 handicapper (part of what makes them look so sexy) but they are just fine for a 9 or 10 as well.

    What I am hoping to find is that Cobra has finally gotten some of the gapping issues addressed with their one length series.  Always a challenge.  I've tracked all my stats w Arccos for years and my 5 iron sits in the garage as its numbers were indistinguishable from the 6. Even the 6 and 7 are sometimes awfully close.  Arccos thinks my 9 and 8 are also too similar.  So I'm hopeful to see a more consistent gap between clubs and put the 5 iron back into play.  When I took the 5 iron out I replaced it with a Cobra one length hybrid, but that tends to draw/hook way too often - and I need an 180 club I'm confident will go fairly straight.

1) Iron Choice: Forged Tec X for forgiveness. This year more than any other, irons have been a struggle.

2) Name/City: Blake/Akron, OH

3) Current Irons: Bridgestone Tour B JGR HF2

4) Handicap: ~12

5) More than willing to participate in discussions, write reviews, or whatever is required.

* For whatever reason, only one shaft option was available in X? I'd rather have the Modus3 Tour 120's.

Current irons: Stealth Irons, 4-G Fujikura Ventus Blue Stiff, 1° Flat

Low 20 handicap

I consent to participate thoroughly in chats before, during, and after receiving the irons  

For fear of doing this wrong, I’m actually going to probably do this wrong and submit 2 options. 😬

B57DB671-06F9-4D9E-83DE-C509501AC84C.png.892f4135859fd38a45f0d86202dd7f40.png

My first choice would be the Forged Tec One Length set in steel, stiff, 5-G. As far as why I chose those options, its because that is all they had to choose from when picking. I have become a big fan of graphite shafts but that isn’t available as it is an upgraded option.

I have always wanted to try a set of one length irons for the possibility of how consistent they could be. Like most, my longer irons are a little less consistent for me but I would love to feel more confident and hit them more often. I have heard great things about Cobra’s new irons and I’d love to put them through the paces.

If the One Length irons aren’t an available option, the Forged Tec X would be what I would choose. To be honest, if they had the FTX in One Length, that would be primo. I was bummed initially when they were announced but they didn’t plan on making them in a One Length version.

As my game is coming together and my handicap is coming down, the FTX is actually a better option for me as they are going to be more forgiving, which is what I need. I absolutely LOVE my Stealth irons and I’d love to see how these compare. Cobra has come a long way over the years but it's not that often you see people on the course playing them.

  • I chose the Forged TEC Copper. Why? Well, just look at them! Gad Zooks!!!…. I would hope they are similar to my TM p770’s, and softer due to the copper. I also chose the graphite, because my wrists and elbows cannot take steel anymore. I’ll pay the extra hunski if it’s a problem. I would hope that they are extremely accurate and consistent in distance, in addition to being as sexy as a club can get.

  • I would probably choose the Tec X for the forgiveness and get the custom set 5-GW. Not sure if I would go to graphite or stick with steel. Add 1/2-1” for the extra distance it would bring but would definitely go through a full fitting

  • I went with the King Forged Tech Irons for a couple reasons.
    • I would like to have an iron that has some better feel than typical game improvement irons, as all I have played up till now have been the fairly clunky and chunky.
    • upon looking I could not do a custom set of the X Forged Tech irons as a left hander.
  • John in Fenton, MI.
  • Current Irons are the Callaway Rogue ST Max irons with 1/2 long shafts (hence that in my screenshot)
  • Currently a 20 handicap, but it has been dropping as my rounds this season are significantly better than last season.
  • yes, I would participate in and discussions on the forums about the irons and my experience if I was to receive them.

Thanks and good luck to all the applicants!

COBRA! - Just amazing support and opportunities to the MGS folks here throughout the years - thanks for this chance.

So I might be off here, but checking the site, it looked like I had to go to custom for chance at Left Handed configuration.  I could be doing something wrong and that wouldn't surprise me.

I chose the Forged Tec as I like the smaller off set as well as the thinner top line.  I don't need much help with distance, which the X would add just a hair more.

Yes, I noticed that too when I was looking at the link beofre posting. 

But not to worry the winner will be able submit their specs and we will submit to Cobra for them to build directly.  We just thought it'd be fun for everyone to select and show wha they would choose and why.   And of course the winner won't be held to the specs they posted.

I chose the Tec X since I am a 15 handicap. Left hand was not available in the custom options; I would have gone graphite if I could

Dave/Chicago Area IL

Currently play Wilson D7. 1/2" over 1 deg. upright 

15 Hdcp.

I would agree to discuss how these work for my game.

As a lefty Cobra has made this a really easy decision. I would have to go with the King Forged Tec X Irons in a regular steel shaft. This is the only lefty option. That being said, hypothetically if all the ranges were open to lefties I would go with the KING Forged Tec ONE Length Irons for several reasons.

1. My current set of irons are the MP-20 SEL. The lofts of the King Forge Tec irons are close to the MP-20 SEL lofts so there would be less of an adjustment that needs to be made along with the ability to get a ball to sit close to where it lands since they are not loft jacked. 

2. You can go up to a 4. I love my irons and if I could I would go all the way to a 2 iron.

3.I feel like the 1025 carbon steel and hollow body design is filled with a lightweight foam give the Cobra Forged Irons the best chance of feeling butter soft on center hit shots along with some feedback and forgives on miss hits. Everyone knows Mizuno irons are at the top for feel when it comes to irons but with this new design I feel like Cobra has caught up and will be able to run with Mizuno for best feeling irons.

4. I would go specifically with the ONE length irons for a few additional reasons. The swing weights are close to what I am currently playing again making an easy transition. The second is 100% personal in the fact that I have been following and copying Bryson to some degree with my clubs. I converted a putter into an arm lock. Shaved some strokes off my game. I got Bryson to respond on you tube to figure out his glove size and recommended jumbo max grip size i should go with. After having those on I have seen an improvement with consistency resulting in again lower scores. I have been on the fence for the longest time about one length and could just not justify paying for a full set of irons just to try them but at this point it is the only thing I haven't tried in Bryson's style and everything else has worked so far, so why not. The one length would also allow me to go to a KBS $ Taper Chrome X-Stiff shaft.

 

Cobra and Bryson....some of use lefties can play with more then game improvement irons, throw us some love!

Currently what is in the bag:

Iron are Mizuno MP-20 SEL 3-PW 

Wedges are Vokey SM8's 46, 50, 54, 58, 62

Putter(s): switch between Scotty Cameron Newport 2.5 Special or a Odyssey Tank 7 putter that I converted to an armlock putter.

 

All grips are Jumbo Max XL

Ball switched between ProV1 x, ProV1 left dash, and TP5 X

Lets give it a try here.

I am in between the King Forget Tec One Lenght irons

And The Forget tec Irons.

I have always played the regular irons and have really been interested on the OL irons, due to the possibility of simplifying my set up and swing.

I do think that Cobra has come a long ways and I would be very excited to see how their Irons play for my game.

I live in Southgate, Michigan.

I am currently playing the PXG 0211 DC

I am playing at a 18 handicap.

Heck yeah, I will participate in those discussions about the irons.

See my reply to Juspoole about 3 or 4 replies above, about the LH custom selection.  If a LH wins, they will just be sumbmitting their specs directly to us and we will forward to Cobra for the build.  So in short, yes a LH will be able to have the FT-X
