Playability

Every club is the length of a 7-iron, so short irons fly higher and are more workable; because they're shorter than in conventional sets, the 4-, 5- and 6-irons launch lower than some testers expect, though they still fly plenty high.

Distance Control

Raw distances are not far off its counterpart, with super-consistent gaps in a tighter overall range; many testers choke down on touchy, in-between shots.

Cons

Many can't get used to the short irons—they're unwieldy for finesse shots, and make normal stand-alone wedges feel like twigs; long irons are easy to hit, but they fly lower and shorter than traditional-length sticks; some testers report a major adjustment period.

Bottom Line

Our panelists are thrilled to see Cobra make a game-changing gamble that has merit for lots of players. It takes commitment and an open mind, but for beginners—or anyone flat-out fed up with his or her iron game—it makes perfect sense to start right here.
