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.
