What's new? How much does it cost? And how does it perform? Hannah Holden brings you the low down on the new Cobra Aerojet range
Cobra are back with an updated Cobra King range. It includes blades, cavity backs, a driving iron and a players’ hybrid.
Cobra King Irons
All three Cobra King irons are made from 1025 carbon steel and undergo Cobra’s 5-step forging process to deliver a soft feel. The extra stage in the forging process creates more precise shaping, more precise and flatter clubfaces, tighter weight tolerances, improved consistency of loft and lies, improved face thickness consistency, improved aesthetics, and significantly enhanced feel at impact.
The MB irons are pure blades with the most compact shape in the Cobra King line-up. These are built with better golf in mind. They have a thin top-line, minimal offset, shorter blade lengths and a thinner sole for better control and turf interaction. All this makes them great for shot-shaping and precise iron play.

These have a more forgiving cavity back shape than we see in the MBs. In particular, it has slightly more offset.

These deliver a soft feel and workability but with added distance and forgiveness.
There are CNC undercuts in each iron’s back cavity, which repositions weight from the high centre to the low centre. This improves launch conditions and gives you more forgiveness on off-centre hits. The location of this varies across each iron loft to get the best launch conditions for each.
This undercut is filled with a soft TPU material which is covered with an aluminium co-moulded medallion. Both of these dampen vibrations to improve sound and feel.

Cobra King Tec Utility Irons
This is a classic, muscle-back style iron, but they have a metal wood style construction to deliver more speed and distance.
The utility features the Pwrshell face insert and H.O.T face technology that we see in the Aerojet drivers. Optimised thicknesses across the club face increase ball speed and produce more efficient spin across a larger area of the club face.
The club head also features extreme tungsten weighting to lower the CG for improved launch and spin rates off the tee and from the fairway or rough.
To improve sound and feel, the hollow club head is injected with Expancel Microsphere Foam to absorb vibrations and tune sound and feel.
These are available in both variable and one-length options.
Cobra King Tec Hybrid
This hybrid is designed to be a premium offering to complement the rest of the King iron range.
It has a new ST-118 face material and features the same H.O.T face technology as the utility irons to increase ball speed and get more consistent spin.
It has a carbon crown which allows more weight to be repositioned low to improve both launch and forgiveness.
There is also an adjustable weight system on the sole. The two 12g heavy weights can be positioned in the back or heel for a draw-biased flight, back or toe for a fade-biased flight, and front heel or toe areas of the club head to encourage neutral and controlled flight.
