COBRA KING FORGED TOUR
www.cobragolf.com Availability: 4-PW (stock set 5-PW / 4-PW)
Stock shaft: KBS Tour FLT 7i loft/length: 33° / 37.25”
TECH: Forged five times so the shape is extremely precise and grain structure tightened to increase feel. Tungsten weights in the toe and heel lowers and centres the CG for forgiveness.
WE SAY: Thanks to their work with guys like Rickie Fowler Cobra has taken huge steps forward with these irons. The whole set is made up of really desirable head shapes with sleek straight top and leading edges which appeal to decent golfers. It’s no surprise that off a strong loft (7-iron) the Tour posted a joint second longest carry and a ball speed a good 1.5mph quicker than the average. Off-centre hit performance comes from the tungsten toe and heel weighting which aids stability.
VERDICT: It feels to us like Cobra has matured a bit over the last couple of years. Some of the crazy colours, designs and ideas have been quietened down to produce products with much more mass-market appeal. For us the Tours are a seriously good set of irons.
