VER­DICT It’s dif­fi­cult to be­lieve it was roughly 25 years ago that Co­bra em­barked down the path of over­size irons, plac­ing an em­pha­sis on dis­tance in­stead of pre­ci­sion. Co­bra con­tin­ues that pur­suit by tak­ing a more mul­ti­fac­eted ap­proach to in­creas­ing dis­tance. The King Over­size irons com­bine a thin­ner, L-shape face with a hol­low frame and mul­ti­ple ma­te­ri­als to lower the cen­tre of grav­ity. The re­sult is Co­bra’s most flexible iron face ever, nearly at the R&A limit. A light­weight True Tem­per XP 85 shaft gives slower swingers more speed, too. COM­MENTS (M) The align­ment marks on the face frame the ball well.

(H) Its size in­duces con­fi­dence. The off­set makes you feel like you can’t slice it.
