    Why would the lie angles not all be the same if all the lengths are the same?







    I asked about that -- and this was the response. Cobra found that with first gen (F7 and Forged) OL clubs - with constant lie angles -- that players tended to pull/hook the short clubs and push/slice the long. The lie angles are meant to address that tendency.




    Thats the official response. As someone who did play the F8 OL from when they first came out in Feb to about July, thats plenty of rounds and range time - the difference in the lie angle really threw me out. First, I loved the flatter higher irons, makes plenty of sense and got really good. Then with the 5 & 4 irons, they looked steep and I had a hard time adapting to these irons. As a consequence, long game suffered and when I went to my current P790s, my usual foursome players all said "I'm back" and they said I was always short with my long irons with the Cobras.



    Overall, I am much happier with my VL P790s, but I may still toy with the Forged Ones that do not have the different lie angle. If I did get the Forged Ones, I will increase the length of the 4 & 5 a tad to get back my "normal" carry.



    All up, this is a brilliant idea from Cobra and if I did not already did the experiment, I would be all over it but I have to say, OL is NOT for every one especially if you are a low single digit player. Cobra market is the mid capper where the golfer needs help with consistency in ball striking and those cappers would prefer to use hybrids. The single digits already strike it well but in order to maintain the low iron carry distances the same as the VL irons - as I found out, you have to swing harder/faster on the equivalent OL irons. OL relies on roll for overall distances so you have to re-calibrate your carry distance with the shorter lengths.



    Give it a try, it may work or it may not, you have 50% chance and at least it will quench the thirst of one length intrigue image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    technically on the calendar, yes......however the snow possibly coming down in the next few weeks has other ideas. We are usually good for the first snow falling anywhere from late September to late October. As of now, we're kind of stuck in the 50's, so I would guess it would be the latter

    This has been my first experience with anything related to Cobra Golf and their customer service. They are in a word, AWESOME. I made an error in my order which THEY realized and fixed and they've responded to emails within a matter of minutes. Very, very impressive.

    Just an update. Cobra contacted me and said that they could not get the clubs with my desired graphite setup to the desired swingweight, but worked with me to find a lightweight, but stiff option that would work.



    We ended up with Nippon Modus 3 105 Stiffs. On paper they seem like they should work.

    Has anyone received a shipping notice? My order progressed to "sent to warehouse" but I don't want to read into what that means.

    When I ordered my F8 One length irons a couple weeks ago it was stuck in that status for a few days, the day that it changed to shipped and got my tracking info the package ended up being delivered on that day haha

    I’m torn between trying the FTEC with Smacwrap graphite or the Forged 1 with steel.



    Qwik, curious why you went stronger on an already strong set? I was thinking of going weaker as with my last TEC set the spin was really low and I would get flyers out of the rough that would sail the green.

    I am a sweeper and deliver a lot of dynamic loft at impact (this is confirmed with GC2-HMT). My AoA is 1* down to 0. My concern with the 780s is the high launch since my launch is already high (if less than 20* on a 7i is ideal -- I am typically 20 to 22). So -- I took a degree off the lofts to try and counter my higher launch.



    The 1* strong also (for the most part) matches my existing lofts with my current setup -- which have lower launching Steelfiber shafts. The funny thing is -- they emailed me and said they could not get the 780s to the right swingweight, so mine are getting built with Nippon Modus 3 105s (which still are a high launch shaft).



    If it matters -- I understand that the Forged One is part of the 1st gen OL lineup, and that improvements were made in the F-Tec and F8 sets (the 2nd Gen). I would go F-Tec.

    I think I will. Figure it's worth $28 to see if they are any more consistent than my i200 or softer. Love my Pings, but hearing my son hit his Forged AMP with graphite shafts makes me want cleaner sounding irons again.

    Placed my order. I ended up going with the Forged ONE head as I have loved that head since the AMP Forged days, and my kid plays that iron. I am hoping the OL helps me be more consistent with a slightly smaller profile than my i200, and get me a much softer/quieter iron.



    They ended up allowing me to get the newer Recoil 780 Smacwrap shafts as I really wanted to get the newer heavier shafts. Plus if these work I plan to match it up with 1 or 2 King Utilities in the 3/4 and they come standard with the Recoil Smacwrap shaft. They also did the custom lie over the phone.



    One more thing for those that have ordered. Dicks just emailed a 25% off 1 item link, and they have Cobra hybrids and Utilities if you want to add to the set. I ordered a 4 OL Utility just in case these work out. If not I will return it to Dicks. Saves $55 if it does.

    They make the long irons more upright because most golfers slice. More upright=better chance of hitting straight

    They found that the short irons were more visually appealing slightly flatter.

    Probably what started happening, folks were still not sticking to the same setup for each club and were widening their stance on short irons and standing taller on longer. Probably tough to break that habit from years of playing VL.

    Sent an email to Molly at Cobra CS. She responded within an hour or so and said "sent to warehouse" means that the order is in the custom shop (ordered the irons 2 up) and that they should be shipped today or tomorrow. As mentioned in an earlier post, their responsiveness has been wonderful.

    Wow, that was fast. Placed my order two days ago and it was pretty custom with shafts that aren't even listed as available for this head. They got them built and shipped the next day and will be here Friday. Just in time for this cool weather and a weekend full of golf. Well done Cobra, as usual. Been a fan of their CS for years.

    If you went with the Cobra Connect grips you'll be pleasantly surprised when they send enough Arccos sensors for you to complete your set. Have to say how that Cobra has been really impressive with their service throughout. Now we need to see if they can bring consistency to an ugly swing.



    And as a true WRX'er...starting to look at the SL hybrids. Oh my...not usually such a ho.

    Yeah, they tell you that on their website. It's a pretty cool deal if you want ARCCOS. I think you have to pay an annual subscription after the 1st year to keep it though, and I wasn't a fan of how the grips felt in hand. Many have liked it though. I went without and got corded crossline. If the results match my excitement, i'm going to be a bit lighter in the pocket and have to deal with BST all over again.

    You could have grabbed one from Dicks online for 25% off the other day. I ordered the OL Utility. Just in case.

    Most folks ordered the FTEC black, which are really new. I would be surprised if they did offer much. But think they may do something. I got the Forged ONE, which are really old and about to be replaced. Also, I don't think they sold out of the FTEC, they just had a number limit in mind on the promotion and they hit that pretty quickly. More than likely they said, we can afford to discount X sets and gain some OL traction and they hit that quota rather quickly.
