Explain why you chose the model you did and what you'd hope to get out of them performance wise
I have always been a Cobra fan and used their products in the past. I still have a 2016 Forged Tec Iron that goes in play fairly often. I believe these Forged Tec Irons will give improved forgiveness and distance to my game where I don't play quite as much and allow me to score better even on less then perfect days. Not to mention they are bloody stunning irons!

Will you agree to patriciate in discussions on the forum about your experience with the irons after receiving them.
Of course! This forum is my main social media and where I spend the majority of my time online. I would happily dive deep into a review/discussion with any and all members about the product!

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.
  • Note for Lefty's-You can click on Custom Options if you want the X model to buld your set.  When the winner is chosen, if he/she is LH we will submit the specs directly to Cobra to be build. So in short Lefy's should have the same choices as RH in the X model. 

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!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bryan from Bellingham

+62.7 handicap, +27.4 if you want me to play lefty.

I think I’m the only one who followed the rules of quoting the original post, so does that mean I win by default?

 

 

Ok but seriously, thanks @Golfspy_CG2 and #CobraGolf for putting this together.  What a sweet giveaway, and hopefully a nice unofficial review for the forums!  Good luck everyone!  I still love my OG Forged Tec irons, and I have to imagine these are only going to be better!

I'd have to double check with @Golfspy_CG2 however i believe it will be about a week before the winner is announced. 

Thank you all for participating so far and even if you're not the winner i hope that everyone still participates in the follow up afterwards! 

For sure. I am extremely interested to see how folks like these. The most interesting iron release for me this year.

One of the nice things about Cobra is that they seem to be the only large OEM (I could be wrong) that lets you buy irons individually from their website. 

Whether it’s a tough pill to swallow on dropping $1,200 on a full set, or just a preference to mix-up the FT & FTx lines and shafts, or to feel less pain in only paying $174 or even say $348 on 2 irons at a time; which is where I would fall in. 😆

It’s nice to see.

Actually Titleist, TaylorMade and Callaway all do.   

So it's more about a couple that don't nowdays, PING and Mizuno. 

edit: I just rereaad your post, I see you mean like buy a single 7 iron to try out from them online.   I do believe Callaway and srixon do that, as I have purchased single irons from them online.

Aaah. 💡 I was wrong. It’s been a while since I’ve visited the iron pages on their respective sites.

An old PC tools package vendor admitted that they inserted a line in the EULA that offered $50 cash to whomever read far enough down in the licensing agreement.  Like yours, nobody ever claimed it, and only hard-core PC geeks would have bought it.  They said that they wanted to insert a line to the effect that the end user agrees to surrender their 1st born child, but their lawyers talked them out of it.  Not going to admit that I clicked to agree with the EULA.
