Best golf irons 2019: Cobra F9 Speedback
These irons have tried to incorporate a lot of tech and much of Cobra’s work here was getting the iron to look right while containing all of this game-enhancing technology.
More mass has been added low and wide compared to a traditional iron and up to 33 grams of tungsten has been added to the heel and toe of the 4-, 5-, 6- and 7-irons.
The variable thickness face is three grams lighter than previous and features pockets in the upper heel and toe that help increase the sweet spot.
There’s also a forged insert within a deep undercut sole design and an all new 1.2mm internal speed channel that absorbs and returns more energy to the ball for faster ball speeds and increased launch angle.
A three-piece multi-material medallion behind the face improves sound and feel by damping vibrations at impact.
These irons also feature CNC milled face and grooves for more accurate lofts and tighter tolerances on face roughness and groove shaping.
The long irons, mid irons and wedges are each designed with different groove shapes to deliver specific performance characteristics.
Shorter hosel lengths in the long irons position the CG lower to promote higher launch, while progressively taller hosel lengths in the short irons and wedges raise the CG progressively to promote a lower, more controlled ball flight.
The F9 Speedback irons are available in variable or One Length and feature the Arccos Cobra Connect system built in to the grips.
