Cobra Forged Tec Irons - Back to Black
Cobra have launched their new King Forged Tec Black irons designed to offer a soft feel with power, and finished in a new black aesthetic.
Available in both variable and One Length, the irons come with Cobra Connect powered by Arcoss, which puts electronic sensors in the ends of the irons to offer Tour level analysis on a player’s game. Golfers that buy seven irons will also be given extra sensors to put into the rest of their clubs, to offer a full game analysis.
“Better players are going to love the combination of soft feel, tour-level precision and maximum playability that the KING Forged TEC Black irons provide,” said Tom Olsavsky, Vice President of R&D for COBRA Golf.
“With some incredible new innovations, these irons will allow golfers to get dialled-in for more greens-in- regulation and better scoring, while maintaining their sleek look round-after- round.”
Both the KING Forged TEC Black and KING Forged TEC Black ONE Length irons feature an all-new Forged 4140 Stainless Steel face that is thinner and stronger to provide improved deflection and increased ball speed across the face. In addition, the all new Technology Enhanced Cavity (TEC) utilizes a 100% carbon fiber medallion that damps vibrations to provide a softer, yet more solid feel during impact.
The new Dimonized Black Metal (DBM) Matte Finish boasts the industry’s most durable satin black finish ever, reducing glare and providing extreme wear resistance while maintaining the look and feel of a classic forged iron.
For playability, the KING Forged TEC Black irons utilize high-density Tungsten weights that are strategically placed on the heel and toe of the clubhead to lower and center CG for improved forgiveness and precision.
The KING Forged TEC Black ONE Length irons offer an added dimension of consistency, as COBRA engineers have manipulated the design of each iron to match the weight and length of a 7-iron, allowing for one simple, repeatable swing throughout the set. Finally, the KING Forged TEC Black ONE Length irons feature a true after-market True Temper AMT Tour White steel shaft, which has been powder coated black to match the finish of the matte black iron head.
Progressive weighting in the shafts (shaft weights increase in 3g increments throughout the set), with lighter shaft weights in the long irons promote higher launch and more speed, while the heavier shaft weights in the short irons and wedges promote more accuracy and control.
