    AND both sets come with either black Dynamic Golds or black C-Tapers. Cobra, you f'n go guys. Huge year coming from them.




    I completely agree! Offering black iron shafts to go with these heads is fantastic. Nice job Cobra!

    What's the difference with these and the current ones besides slightly different paint scheme? I don't see any physical changes here.

    I was looking at that myself and I honestly dont see any physical differences between the clubs. I do see a small spot on the 7cb where it looks like they had put a tungsten weight directly in the center of the sole where ours do not have that.

    Maybe no difference, but for those of us wanting a full set of MB's, these are the ticket with the 2016's (orange paint fill) being discontinued.

    That is only going to effect 3-7 in MB, CB will be the same. The offset stayed consistent throughout CB/MBs this year whereas the offset was a little less in MBs after the 7 irons.

    If there is no difference you would have a pretty good savings trying to find up a slightly used/mint set on eBay and just using acetone to take the orange out. Although you would miss out on the black S-Tapers, which would be enough for me to pay extra. Just giving you options.

    less offset is better. i'm hoping the new specs on the mb's are wrong
  • Belmont148Belmont148 Members Posts: 1,487 ✭✭
    Might have to give one length a try now. The 5i and 6i in TEC are so long I bet these would work out well with the one length. A one length hybrid, and a set of black wedges, holy cow they all look good.

    Youre only talking .3mm difference in the 3-4 irons, and .2mm difference in 5-7 irons. That wouldn't be a dealbreaker for me.

    I may have missed one black set of MB's on eBay, but honestly haven't seen another set offered. My goal is to have a set of MB's 4->P. Can't seem to source the 4, 5, 6 in black at the moment.

    I gotta change my pants.



    No but seriously. I am liking it. The refresh is nice but, as stated, I don't see much of a difference. Now that the cat is out of the bag (with a seeming release date of 1/19?!), I am wondering how Cobra will roger up to this. Maybe it's a Europe only release. That'd be fine as I've bought cleats from Europe that were released only there and have had them shipped over here with the currency exchanges.



    I'd buy them new. The MP18s are out of the bag.

    Where did you see the black c taper lites offered? I only see the black dynamic gold on the specs for Forged TEC.



    They also have the back utility listed, and they have one length utility’s. Cobra has gone all out this year.

    Sorry, it is black S-Taper for the CB/MB. Only black Dynamic Gold for the Forged Tec. I agree, Cobra is really stepping their game up. Quality offerings all over the place. Disappointed the hybrids' lofts aren't adjustable but that is about the only knock I have out of their new lineup.

    Would the dynamic gold AMT be a step down from the C Taper Lites? I thoughtt the CTL were more of an upgrade shaft over DG AMT?

    This is the AMT Tour Issue shaft, which is a decently high end iron shaft. I have played it and the C-taper before and prefer the feel of the AMT. C-Taper is a good shaft but is kind of harsh and doesn't have as smooth as a feel to me. I would say it is a lateral move if anything. Honestly would have thought they would have went S-taper black in everything but I believe more people will enjoy the AMT more than the C-Tapers.

    Really tempted by the new one length, put some kbs $ tapers in them!
  • Belmont148Belmont148 Members Posts: 1,487 ✭✭
    This would be typical Cobra marketing. Hey, let’s put new clubs in play with Rickie and not show a picture, or have any leaks, or press release. Let’s do a 1/19 launch and have a UK store get all the specifics but never meantion a word about it through our marketing. Let’s just show up at the PGA show after every other manufacturer has strategically got their product in the top Youtubers hands to release weeks before the show.



    Just have a feeling they are going to,get buried again this year to all but the Cobra die hards.

    I dunno man. They seeming put a lot of guff into the F8 line
  • tmax77tmax77 Members Posts: 1,013 ✭✭
    Unfortunately they won’t be able to market all the new things...I know I have talked to callaway and nike over the years even they couldn’t market all of their things as much as they want to...there are only so many ad dollars so choose wisely what to spend it on...for us we are the “top 5 percent” of the Golf population that are looking for players mb/cb...if I were Cobra I would be marketing to “masses” as well with the f8 line that’s where the bulk of the sales are anyway..
    Under construction....
  • StanksStanks Everything I post is confrontational Members Posts: 1,248 ✭✭
    True. P730 got very little hype as well at Apex MB, Mizuno MB etc.



    It would just be smart to even mention it. That couldn’t hurt at all.
  • Belmont148Belmont148 Members Posts: 1,487 ✭✭
    Exactly. How much does it cost to send a tweet, or instagram shot of a new club Rickie has in the bag? That alone would get forums talking, which in turn gets youtubers talking. Granted, I know we are a small demographic, but I think the folks on here and youtube and all our club switching really keeps the companies in business. Not the 50 yo lifelong golfer that doesn't know what the internet is that buys a custom fit set from his buddy Bobby at the pro shop once every 10 years. He would be the one who sees the marketing dollars, tv spots and magazine ads.

    Heard the heads are the same with only different paintfill but will now come stock with KBS Black $-Tapers. Also, these are my favorite irons I have ever owned.

    I also asked cobra today what the story is with these. New irons should be out later this year. Maybe announced at the PGA show.
  • The GeneralThe General Members Posts: 1,731 ✭✭
    There is definitely an extra tungsten weight in the middle of the sole, that's oval shaped. RF has extra weight there as well on his gamer set. There could be other internal changes that we can't see, yet.



    Love that new paint job. I need to change mine to something fresh.
  • IHFNIHFN Members Posts: 1,786 ✭✭
    Oh man, do I cancel my order on the P730's or not. Those look great with the black $-Taper's. And yes, it looks like the are again exactly what Ricky has with the weights. It's interesting though because the weight on the sole for his is due to him liking them shorter and he needed the extra weight. The spec's on these actually look longer than normal by a half an inch on standard irons and .25 longer than last years MB/CB's.

    Interesting. I noticed on the site it is the shiny black which has usually meant bad wear with KBS. Remember the smoke KBS Tour's?

    So not being a Cobra fanboy I am a little confused. Straighten me out, can you order a full set of CB’s? Also, are the Forged Tech being updated in the spring or not?



    Appreciate it, ignore my ignorance.
  • Cruisin1966Cruisin1966 ClubWRX Posts: 777 ClubWRX
    Yes, you can order a full set of CB's, or a full set of MB's, or a combo (most common online or off the rack). We "hear" that there will be new Forged TEC irons this year.
