    I am testing a set currently from Cobra.
    I love the look, size and offset. I wonder how much better they would feel without stock KBS shafts

    Based on your sig showing Modus3 130x, why didn't you order them with the same shafts?

    This is a set from the Regional Rep here in Montreal. I didn't have a choice for the shaft.

    I’ll be interested in how you like $ taper vs your gamers with recoil proto f5. I put recoil 95 F4 in my cb 5 iron which came out of my previous gamer and it’s likely I will load the rest of the recoils in the Kings.

    I have 3 sets of XTD Forged irons.. all have different shafts;
    UST TourSPX Recoil Prototype 95g F5
    Aldila RIP 115g Tour Stiff
    DG XP S300

    I was reading thru a thread on another site that a guy had the $-Taper and changed them to graphite and didn't like them as well as the original ones. One of my main reasons why I bought the Cobra MB's are the lofts are exactly the same as my XTD Forged irons, and in the past I had Srixon z945's with Steelfiber 110 xstiff and loved them. The Cobra MB are about as close looking as the z945 I feel, so at some point I might order a single 7i MB and mess with shaft options..

    I had my Cobra rep send me a combo set and so far.....I hit these just as good as my Ping I210. Very good set of irons.

  • WardonationWardonation Members Posts: 1,434 ✭✭

    I am trying to tell anyone that these are the easiest blades I have ever hit period. Easier than 730,MP18, & Callys... They also look the best IMO...

  • WardonationWardonation Members Posts: 1,434 ✭✭

    So in regards to length does Cobra measure from EOG or cut length? Cannot believe they put the Arrcos in these blades? I had to lead tape them just to get them to D2 with Zcords... I am not a fan of tip weights

  • firstbatchfirstbatch Members Posts: 1,059 ✭✭

    Wardonation...........I ordered mine plus 1/4” as past memory is Cobra is a little short. Also ordered with grips loose in the box. So for example the 6 iron measured raw playing length 37 3/4” and E1 without grip. With a 52g grip installed was at 38” and D4. Don’t know if it has a tip weight. Cobra web site says 6i ordered stock with std grip measures 37.75” and D2. When I disassembled a previous purchase of a 5 iron it had a 2g tip weight and measured 38.25” top of standard grip and was D2. Head weighed 254g

    I ordered mine to be standard length without the Cobra Connect grips (had GPTV standards installed) as if / when I change out the grips I didn't want to have to deal with swingweight issues. After receiving them I checked their lengths to confirm them versus their website specs shown.. across the board on all of them, they are -1/4" shorter than published on their site... 5i shows 38.25" and it is in fact 38" (this includes the overall length including the grip butt cap) Had I known that this was the case I might have ordered them 1/4" longer. Although I really don't think that 1/4" longer / shorter will affect my swing much, besides a quick look at my other stock length sets 5i's they all look to be 38".

    Yep that makes sense and has been my prior experience. Why Cobra publishes those specs yet doesn’t build exactly to them is annoying.

    Can anyone comment on the 2016/17 version compared to the 2019 Version.. The 2019's have the tungsten in the sole, where the previous years did not.. Does anyone know if the new version is higher launching because the CG has been lowered with the added tungsten? All the reviews of the new models suggest that they launch a bit higher...
