Personally i think they are worth the switch. I've had 2 rounds with them and cannot believe how easy the cb long irons are to hit considering how small the heads are. I came from Mizuno 850 forged and didn't even get the 4 iron for that set cause i didn't hit my buddy's with any consistency when i tried his a bunch of times. But for whatever reason, i can hit the Cobra King cb 4 iron with no issues. Even ordered the 2 iron to mess around with! In the process of changing out some of the paint fill and may change from the c-tapers to kbs tour custom black pearl shafts but that will have to wait until after X-Mas.

Great clubs, but so disappointed, because they are too player for me. The 7-GW MBs are too much for me (3 handicap, rely on length and short game). They look sooo good at address, I want to love them so bad...
Shot a decent round, but just scrambled the whole day because I wasn't hitting it solid... And I know I'm not a great ball striker, and I was intimidated of missing... So more my problem than the clubs... Hit two great shots, with the 5 iron and 9 iron, and oh my, if I could hit it on the face consistently the size of a nickel, I would be in love...They will be on the BST tomorrow, someone will get a DEAL, I just talked with DD and they are on back order until mid January...

Damn! I hate it when that happens. I've been there and done that.

Maybe try the Forged Tec irons? The Youtube reviews (from what you can tell) sound promising.

Hey lovesick what are your plans as far as changing the paint fill? Are the king's anymore difficult than the S3's pros? My S3 pro set now is 5-6 are cb and the 7-PW are mb's and I have no trouble with them. Thinking of going to a full CB set just for the days when I get a little lazy in my swing. Pairing them with the right shaft is everything, at least it was for me and the S3's. I got them with the DGs300 and struggled to hit them, changed out the shafts and we have had a very loving relationship ever since.

I've gotta think they're a little easier to hit than the s3 irons. I was missing some the other day when I spent over an hour hitting them in the simulator and was impressed with how well my misses were turning out compared to the solid shots.

I change too much to list it. Working on that...

They are easier or more forgiving then the S3's imo. Go with whatever set up you are comfortable with. I prefer the cb's in the long irons but i could have gone with them for a whole set and not been upset about it.
Maybe it was just my experience, but removing the orange paint fill was a b*tch! Lol was using acetone and it wasn't doing anything really. I had to sit there with a small razor knife and basically scrape it out. Then i noticed when i put in lime green that any excess i was wiping off was leaving a slight stain on the black finish. Had to fix that with some 0000 steel wool because again acetone wasn't cutting it. I usually use Jasco to remove paint from whole putter heads or woods, but was afraid it would affect the finish on the irons. Definitely the hardest paint fill job I've done.

Can someone post some pics at address? Especially of the MBs?

How do they compare at address, shape, offset etc to the Bio Cell Pro and Fly Z Pro MB?

They're as tiny and square looking as any I've seen.

I'll try and get some pics up once I'm done with the paintfill. I really wanted to put the black kbs tour shafts in but got my 2 iron today with that shaft and was surprised that it flew so low. Irons actually felt better to me with the c-tapers. Lol so at least i saved myself some money by not switching out shafts now.

I'm in the danger zone with them for paint right now.. I don't necessarily wanna do anything, but it's winter time and I am just staring at them currently, and the part of me that want's to tinker is kicking in.. There's so many possibilities with the black.
