CO­BRA KING FORGED TOUR

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - GOLFING | GEARGUIDE -

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.
