Cobra have revealed their new King Forged Tec irons. Here's what we know so far
Cobra King Forged Tec irons: First impressions
The new irons are a traditional muscle-back shape and have a classic look with modern cutting-edge styling.
Cobra King Forged Tec irons: The technology
The muscle-back irons feature a hollow design for softer feel and improved power. The hollow face helps create a lower centre of gravity to maximise distance and forgiveness.The hollow cavity is infused with energising foam microspheres that fine-tune the acoustics of the club-face creating a softer feel at impact.
The thin forged face insert, that Cobra call “pwrshell”, has been updated to create a larger sweet spot for higher launch and faster ball speeds in a players’ iron.
The clubs also feature a tungsten toe weight to centralise the centre of gravity behind the hitting zone to maximise distance and increase precision even on off centre strikes.
The Cobra King Forged Tec irons will feature Cobra Connect, powered by Arccos so users can track their performance via the Arccos caddie app using sensors embedded in the grips of the clubs.
They are also available in the One Length irons, which are all in the 7-iron length and developed with the help of Bryson DeChambeau who has used single length irons since he was 17. Throughout the set 7-iron head and swing weight are used with lie angles adjusted to optimise ball flight.
