Equipment: Cobra introduce new King forged irons
Cobra have released their new King line of forged irons engineered for golfers who seek feel, control, accuracy and precision.
The release comes hot on the heels of the new King Ltd Driver.
The King Forged CB/MB Combo Irons are designed for tour players through to the three handicap golfer.
They feature a five-step forging process which results in a more precise shape – developed with feedback from PGA Tour star Rickie Fowler.
A co-forged tungsten toe weight positions the Centre of Gravity (CG) directly behind the hitting zone in the centre of the face for precision shot making.
Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) milled faces and grooves deliver maximum spin and trajectory control.
The Forged Combo set (cavity back (CB) mid & long irons + muscle back (MB) short irons & wedges) comes in a Diamonised Black Metal Finish (DMB) around a forged 1025 Carbon steel body.
The stock set composition is 4-6 (CB), 7-PW (MB).
A full set of MB irons are also available through custom as well as full sets of CB irons (both available in RH only). A chrome version of these irons will be available for purchase in 2016.
The King Forged Tec (Technology Enhanced Cavity) irons, created for the Tour through 10 handicap golfer, provide the feel and precision of a tour iron with maximum forgiveness and distance.
This multi-material construction iron features the same five-step forging technology found in the King Forged CB/MB Combo Irons along with a new J15 high strength steel forged face insert material to enhance distance and save weight.
Improved feel comes from a harmonic cavity insert which is an engineered Thermoplastic Urethane (TPU) Insert, positioned directly behind the impact zone, between the face and the back cavity, for vibration damping and improved feel at impact.
There’s also tungsten heel-toe weighting for forgiveness.
The Forged Tec Irons feature a Premium Nickel Chrome Plating over forged 1025 Carbon Steel.
The stock composition set is 4-PW.
Both King Forged CB/MB irons and the King Forged Tec irons will be available in stock configurations at retail and/or customised configurations and specifications.
