Cobra MIM vs King Tour 23’


Recommended Posts

Has anyone played both of these? I like both, wondering if the tours are worth the extra money. 
 

any input would be great

... I own both sets and the difference is minimal at best. I think the MIM's are the best feeling irons I have ever played, and that includes maybe 20 sets of MB's. Performance is very similar and I would say the lack of visual offset on the MIM's looks better to my eye. Personally I don't care about the cavity but I do find the square box of tungsten on the sole of the MIM's a little tacky, but thankfully it can't be seen at address. All that said the deals on the MIM's are pretty insane as they can be purchased for less than 1/2 the price of the Tour's.

... I don't know why, but I never got along with the V Sole either although I only played them in the OG Srixon 545's and I didn't keep very long. The turf interaction from both Cobra's is the same for me but I live in Phoenix and fairways are very hard and do not produce a divot like those I played in the Midwest, more like an Open Championship course than a typical American course.

I have both sets. The MIM's are an excellent feeling iron as are the 2023 King Tours, but the MIM's just feel "different" somehow, not in a bad way though, just different. It is kinda hard to describe. They both feel very soft, but the 2023 King Tours feel softer even though the MIM's are soft too. I know this doesn't really help, lol. My wife had the MIM's for a year, and when I got my King Tours and she hit them, she said there was something different between the two. Said mine felt better, softer, smoother. Performance wise I feel they are very close with impressive forgiveness for the style of iron they are, not too bad of a distance penalty on mishit shots, and turf interaction is nearly identical. If it matters, the 2023 King Tours are just a tad stronger lofted than the MIMs; King Tour 7 iron is 32º, the MIM 7 iron is 33º. The MIMs are a traditional high chrome finish and are beautiful, the Tours are a more toned-down satin finish and are equally beautiful. They both just look fantastic. IMHO, you will not go wrong with either set to be honest. I will end with this though, my wife took over my 7-GW in the 2023 tours that I built lol But my son (a lefty) plays the MIMs and he swears by them. For what you can get the MIMs for right now, that might be the play if $$$ is a deciding factor. You can get a 4-PW set in the MIMs brand new for less than half the price of the same set in the Tours. But like I said, you can't go wrong with either set, both are a quality set of irons.

I have had the MOMS and play the tours. TO me.TOurs are better in every way, especially if you need to adjust loft and lie. MIMS are close to impossible to adjust way worse than casts clubs.
