Srixon I-302 vs. Cobra SS Forged

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have experience with both of these irons? I'm playing J33 combos right now and want to go with one of the two above mentioned sets for more forgiveness. Allthough I like them, I feel like I might save a couple shots a round with something more forgiving. At address the Cobra and Srixon both look VERY similar. The pic shows a TS-202 iron on the left and a SS Forged and I-302 in the middle and on the right, but not necessarily in that order. As a matter of fact, I'm not sure which is which other than the TS-202. But anyway I'm looking for some fedback to sway me one way or the other on the Cobras or Srixons. Thanks guys!

Just by looking, the Cobras are the rightmost. I have been looking down at that profile for a year and a half now. That is an eternity for me. I usually have 3 0r 4 sets at a time but a set gets moved every 2 o3 months just for the heck of it.

Nothing has taken them out of the bag. Irons that have been played, or are still in the basement during that year and a half...

Z101s

RAC CBs (retail Japan)

TS Xblades

MP32s

Cally X16PS Tour issue

Fourteen Tour Blades

X FCIs

Cally X16 PS (retail)

TS MR23 (the "waffle cavity" ones)

I have a set of Tour TM 300s coming in next week.

I have PX 5.5s in mine. I had been trying to bump them out for so long, but they just flat out work.

Justin,

As I think you'll recall, I had the Cobras a couple seasons ago and the Srixon i302s pretty easily beat them out. I wanted to love the Cobras, I even think about trying another set, but there was just nothing all that special about them. The Srixon's just plain work for me. I think they are slightly larger andm believe it or not, I find the sole grind on the Srixon's to work better than the beveled sole of the Cobras at getting through the turf when I fat it a bit. And with the Rifle shafts as standard, I thought the Srixon's had a better feel at impact, too, which is important to me.

 

I also recently picked up a set of the BStone Combos and they are more compact than the Srixons. I haven't been able to give them a really fair test yet as the season is still quite new here in Wisconsin, but it's pretty obvious to me that the Srixon's will be more forgiving.

 

To muddy the waters further, you might also want to try the Hogan FTXs. They are superb as well.

 

Regards,

Chris

Chris,

 

How are ya'? Been a while. Good to hear about the 302 with rifles as I'm seriously considering giving them a shot, especially for the price. They look great too! But I'm not sure how much differnt the rifle would feel/play in this head? I'm a DG S300 guy normally and I know you can find 302 sets with DG in them too, though they are tougher to find.

 

Honestly, my iron play is the strongest part of my game. I like the combos and hit them pretty well, but after reading/talking with a lot of scratch and + handicaps that feel that those type of clubs are pro equipment, I've been thinking a little more forgiveness wouldn't hurt. If +handis feel like they shouldn't be playing them.... :) I suppose I could use a couple extra strokes per round, lol.

 

How forgiving are the FTX's compared to the J33 combos and 302'? I'm fairly ignorant of Hogan equipment in general.

 

Thanks for your reply! :beee:

 

Justin
