Cobra F9 PhrankenFive

Recommended Posts

During the shutdown I started screwing around with doing my own club building.

Couldn't go into golfmart and had a ton of free time.

Mostly a disasterous and enjoyable experience.... with one exception.

I had a Matrix Black Tie 95g shaft from some driving iron or hybrid that didn't work out- I'm guessing 40-41"

I took a cobra F9 5 iron head (22.5*) and stuck it on there.

Kind of like the Rickie Fowler driving iron... but too long.


The swingweight is way off.  Feels like a sledgehammer.  Im thinking D7-8 or something.

But I just freaking love this thing. It goes so high in the air, and so far.  Its been an absolute joy to have in the bag.

On a recent boys weekend, my buddy started calling it the PhrankenFive. (im lefty)

And literally every time there was  an opportunity for a shot 200+, everybody would just start calling for it. 

Overnight sensation.


My question is- why?

Why does it work so well?

I feel like ive been trying to shorten my iron shafts (for accuracy)

shorten my driver shaft (same reason)

and now ive got this abomination of a driving ironish thing that has no logical right place in my bag.

In the olden times before graphite was discovered, cavemen played short fairway woods with heavy steel shafts and hit them just like you describe.
