ClubTest 2014: Cobra Bio Cell Irons

Cobra Bio Cell Irons, ClubTest 2014

Cobra Bio Cell Irons

Cobra Bio Cell Irons
Category: Game-Improvement Irons
Price: $699 steel
WE TESTED:
4-GW with True Temper Dynalite steel shaft
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: Heavy tungsten plugs boost forgiveness in long irons and enhance spin control and feel in short irons. A large unsupported face creates more flex at impact.

PROS
PLAYABILITY:
Consistent mid-high ball flight and easy-to-launch long irons; subtle fades and draws are no problem; pretty nifty from trouble lies; Bio Cell is a solid performer around the greens.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: Its greatest strength is that it forgives and forgets -- even misses seem to fly high and straight with minimal distance loss; they don’t create a ton of sidespin so shots are on target more often than not; good strikes are rewarded, poor ones are acceptable.
DISTANCE CONTROL: One of the higher-rated models; consistent yardages are the norm, even on less-than-perfect contact; easy to vary distances when needed.
FEEL: A subtle sensation at impact but enough feedback to indicate a solid strike; light through the swing but very stable through the hitting zone; smooth at impact with little in the way of vibration.
LOOK: Sizable blades and medium topline provide confidence over the ball; black-and-silver color combo is a hit; high-tech cavity is impressive; cavity badges come in a choice of four colors.

CONS
For a number of testers, the clubhead/blade size seems larger than they prefer; overall weight can be a bit light; not quite as long as a few testers expect.

BOTTOM LINE: One of the better-performing models. The club produces repeatable distances with very good forgiveness and playability.
