COBRA KING FORGED TEC IRONS

 

CATEGORY: Better Player Irons
PRICE: $1,100, steel; $1,200, graphite
WE TESTED: 4–GW with KBS C-Taper Lite 110 steel shafts
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: The cavity has a TPU insert to soften feel at impact.

PROS

PLAYABILITY: Definitely flies higher than others in the category, making long irons more functional; a few guys can work stock draws and fades, but shots mostly want to travel straight; one of the best at launching shots from the rough.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: This one’s the most forgiving Better Player iron; contact all over the face gets a full pardon, and even surpasses a couple of Game Improvement irons.
DISTANCE CONTROL: At least as long or longer than what many testers currently carry; pulls off finesse and three-quarter shots when you need them.
FEEL: Smooth and effortless at impact, a pure forged feel that testers enjoy; quite stable at impact — extra weight on the toe keeps the club from twisting on off-center hits; head can be traced throughout the swing, which boosts consistency; for some, the entire clubface feels explosive.
LOOK: Slightly larger head and thicker topline can inspire confidence; minimal offset adds to its better-player appeal; distraction-free — the slick black and orange graphics in the cavity are attractive yet hidden at setup.

CONS

The head and topline are a little too chunky for some testers; gives up workability for its high degree of forgiveness; there’s not enough precision in the short irons for one or two panelists.

BOTTOM LINE: With the most forgiveness in its class, the Cobra King Forged Tec is a wise choice for anyone looking to ease into the Better Player market.
