Cobra Irons Over the Last 5 Years
Cobra has made some real product advancements, especially with their irons, over the last few years. Their most recent iron set, LTDx (Longest Total Distance) released in 2022, is a powerhouse. A steel bar called PWR-COR runs behind the face to lower the CG and improve distance.
Cobra has also made a mark in recent years in the players irons market. The RF Proto, made for Rickie Fowler, are the blades of all blades. No offset, small footprint, and scary to stand over unless you are an elite ball striker.
A unique Cobra production is the “One Length” irons. The theory is one length throughout the set will produce one swing, and that can be repeated easier. Bryson DeChambeau is a big proponent of the One Length irons. You can find One Length in several sets, from game improvement all the way to players irons.
An exciting new offering from 2021 is the copper irons. Coated with a PVD copper coating, and available in muscle back blade, cavity back, and game improvement hollow construction, any player can find a copper set that works for their game. The copper finish is arguably the best looking on the market today.
Do all Cobra irons have the “King” designation?
The “King” moniker originated with the King Cobra Oversized, which are the irons that put Cobra into the mainstream, and helped Greg Norman win, and win a lot!
Cobra strayed away from the King title until they felt they had a product that truly embodied the King name. In comes the King lineup of 2016. Technologically advanced, and stellar designs. Definitely worthy of the King surname.
Since 2016, Cobra has stuck with King in the title of most of their products, especially the irons. If you see “King Cobra” just know that you are getting the best that Cobra has to offer!
Cobra Irons History
With a huge golf icon in Greg Norman on their side, Cobra sprung into the iron scene in 1991 with a signature line for “The Shark.” It was their first forged irons, and Norman was the perfect poster child to gain attention.
Cobra released their first “oversized” irons in 1994, and were a major success for the company. The oversized look provided a huge sweet spot, and made getting the ball in the air, and across the course much easier. Although tour and scratch players won’t game with OS irons, they are a big tool, and an important addition to any higher handicap player looking to have fun on the course.
How Often Does Cobra Release New Irons
Cobra is all about innovation, taking the next step, and trying something new. With the graphite shafts, one length irons, and PVD copper finishes, Cobra isn’t afraid to try something new.
After parting ways with Acushnet/Titleist in 2010, when Puma purchased the brand, Cobra found its stride. Cobra has released new iron sets, often multiple sets, every year, since Puma became the parent company. Over the last 12 years, Cobra has made a name for itself in the iron space because of their innovation and originality.
