Thanks to Cobra Golf, you'll now be able to use a single-length iron set very similar to that used by staffer and new PGA Tour member Bryson DeChambeau.
With the introduction of the company's new F7 and King Forged irons, Cobra is releasing two versions of the sets: a more traditional progressive-length set and a single-length set, dubbed One Length.
The One Length versions of both sets feature clubs that have the same length shaft (approximately 37.5 inches, a 7-iron length), same head weight and same lie angle, designed to work with a one-place swing, like DeChambeau's, to work with a consistent swing no matter the club in hand.
Cobra Golf King F7 irons
The King F7 irons build on the F6 model, utilizing the company's TecFlo set design that creates heads with different cavity construction to promote particular aspects of performance.
The long irons (3-5) are fully hollow, with a low center of gravity to get the ball in the air and flying far. The 6-7 irons are half-hollow, while the 8-PW irons have a traditional cavity-back design with wedge-spaced grooves for extra spin. The other wedges are designed to provide versatility, looking like a traditional wedge.
The Pwrshell face is thinner and combines with a sole structure that enlarges the sweet zone for more distance and forgiveness. New badging, dubbed Thin, Optimized and Personalized (T.O.P.), uses a polymer lighter than steel to allow for lowering the center of gravity further for better ball flight.
The grooves are CNC milled to impart maximum spin that's appropriate for each club. Progressive Spin Technology delivers proper spin on each club by combining the milling and the size and shape of grooves that fit the iron in hand.
The Cobra Golf King F7 irons will be available Jan. 13, 2017 for $699 in a seven-piece (5-GW) set with stock True Temper King F7 steel shafts or for $799 with Fujikura Pro 63i graphite shafts (via custom order). A combo set (4/5 hybrid, 6-GW) will be available for $799 in steel and $899 in graphite. A women's set is available for $899, and it comes with 7-GW irons and 4/5 and 5/6 hybrids).
The King F7 One set has all of the same features, with a slightly different, more consistent head geometry to complement the single-length nature of the set. The KING F7 One will cost $699 in steel and $799 in graphite, for both right-handed and left-handed players, with a 5-GW seven-piece set.
Cobra Golf King Forged Tour irons
The King Forged Tour irons are, as you might expect, designed for better players and go through the five-step forging process that creates the kind of softness and feel better players prefer.
The irons feature a fully CNC Milled face and grooves for maximum spin and control, while tungsten weighting is employed in the 4-7 irons to lower center of gravity. A TPU insert in the 4-8 irons is placed behind the hitting zone to dampen vibration and improve feel, while moving weight toward the perimeter for added relief. Nickel chrome plating complete the look.
The King Forged One irons have all the same functionality and features as the King Forged Tour, while coming all in 7-iron length shafts, with the same lie angle and head weight. Again, the idea is to promote a one-plane swing that tightens distance gapping between clubs.
The One line also has specialty 56- and 60-degree wedges, made with 8620 nickel chrome plated carbon steel, with 7-iron length shafts, each sporting notch technology to allow the wedge to sit lower, with a versatile grind to handle all lies.
The Cobra Golf King Forged One irons will be available Jan. 13, 2017, only for right-handed players in KBS Tour FLT steel shafts in a 4-PW set for $999. The One Length wedges are available for $119 each.
The Cobra Golf King Forged Tour irons will be available only for right-handed players in KBS Tour FLT steel shafts in a 4-PW set (3-iron and gap wedge available) for $999.
