    Man I am jealous! I have a set of Ping i irons that I really hit good. I was wanting something Forged, loved the look of the Mizuno MP 25's and I got them at Golfsmith. I just didn't hit them that well, so I took them back for my one trade in. They had a demo set sitting right there and there wasn't anyone hardly there so I sat there for about an hour and wore them out. I really like them. They look nice and tiny but are packed with technology. I am very excited to get them.

    Yes i think you'll be impressed by many manufacturers lineups. I was also very impressed by the titleist Mbs but don't need to be hitting those in the long irons. I wasn't impressed with the cb version of the titleists though. Felt terrible to me. The Cobras are as tiny or tinier than the titleist Mbs in the short irons. They look fantastic. I also read they will be coming out with a chrome version of the Cobras around February but I think the black looks cool.



    The mizunos I had were good but I just can't get past the short irons looking so round and the wedge looks big. Honestly I could if I hit them better but I just didn't hit them as straight as my Ping irons. I think I'll hit these Cobras as well or better from what I saw last night.

    The Cobra King LTD irons look very impressive in Ricky's new King bag.

    This has to be the best looking set up I have ever seen.

    I was able to find the bag at a price I couldn't pass on, the irons we're supposed to follow but the deal fell thru.

    I was finally able to see the LTDs in person and was not disappointed.

    I only had a chance to hit the 6 and 7 iron off the matts.

    The 6 cb feel was not what I hoped it would be. The Shiels video kinda expressed that same observation.

    The 7 mb felt alot better, I have the flyz pros and would have to take both on the course to give an accurate comparison.

    The fly z irons are 1020 vs 1025 for the LTDs.

    Not sure if average joe like me could tell the difference but maybe one would have a preconceived bias toward the flyz feeling softer.

    Prices in Canada are crazy 1300 this yr vs 899 last yr

    Might have to wait until golf town blows them out next yr.



    I warmed up in the simulator at gt with a Mizuno MP-5, 6 iron PX6.5 the cobra cb 6 was not even in the same zip code. Softness wise



    If your ordering LTD irons look into a full set of MBs.

    I thought all the irons felt good. I do agree the muscles backs felt a tad better. I loved the way the cavities felt as well though. These things would look real awesome with black shafts.

    Please let us know! Sweet setup, but I like a little help in those longer irons. I wanna hit those blades in those long irons.

    I think the whole Cobra line is a sleeper as usual for them. I tried the CB/MB and Tec forged and all were great. I dont have the game for the men in black but the few I caught clean felt great.

    Got my first round in with mine yesterday. Cold as **** but irons felt amazing! Checked the lies today cause i had a little tail to the left with them. They were all 2-3 degrees upright of what i ordered but i easily bent them today. I personally couldn't tell the difference feel wise between the cb long irons and mb short irons. They all felt great to me. Feel is subjective though cause i think these feel miles better then the fly z irons.

    Ordered mine with c-tapers but i think i might go back to the kbs tours. Spin and launch were a little low with the c-tapers. Bonus that if i go back to the kbs tours is that I'll order the custom black ones!

    The black KBS shafts with these heads would be a great looking setup.

    Glad to hear you are impressed with the new cobras. A buddy who has the same set up had stated they were softer than the fly z pros as well. If that's the case all hail the new King Cobra. With those black KBS shafts the LTDs would be off the charts. Pics please.

    Let me know if you want to sell the CTapers; I've got a lot of heads looking for shafts.



    I should be getting my set of MBs next week I'm guessing. Can't wait, though I think I want to rid the heads of paint fill.

    I hit the MB and CB seven iron in the net at a shop today, aas well as the King Cobra Driver. Impressed with all of them, especially the driver, but its price tag is off-putting*. The CBs felt great, and the MBs were just delightful; very satisfying solid feel. However, the MBs cost 20,000 yen per club here ($160), so I don't think I will be getting a set anytime soon, though.



    *In Japan, the standard model at Tsuruya will go on sale at around 5,5000 yen ($445). It comes with Graphite Design Cobra Tour AD (MS model?) in S, SR, or R, which is a bit too whippy for me. The pro model is offered with the Speeder Evolution 661 in X, S, and R flex, and that is probably what I'd go for. Shaft options rapidly push the price up towards the $800 dollar range.

    Also, I was pleased to see the standard length in the driver was 45 inches: much easier to hit that the 45.75 in the TM M1.

    Gotta say I am impressed with the look of the irons. Would love to here some insight on how the black looks against moderate to thick rough.

    Just got a message that my MB set won't be in for about 5 weeks due to a head shortage. And here I was getting excited to take advantage of the upcoming stretch of decent weather. I guess these will see play next year. 😞

    Ok just got mine in today. So far they look and feel fantastic (just hit 100 balls into my net in my garage), just how they felt when I went for my fitting. Sadly the 2 iron heads are on back order for another week so I'm still waiting to put that into play. I will play my first round with my new setup Saturday and report back.

    Wow very nice set up.Tee. Looks like you hand picked all the top gear from many manufactures. To include the LTDs in your lineup sends a very positive message about there standings in the collective iron rankings. Thanks for the great pics.

    I'm very excited to get mine in! They're really good and I've gotta say probably as forgiving on toe hits as I've seen for a players set. Extremely small head design that just looks fantastic.

    My vote is for these. The 945s are nice, but I actually thought too soft/numb. To me, the harder choice is these or J15 MB if it had to be one or the other.
