Cobra King F9 Speedback One Length Irons
A solid choice for those looking for better consistency, more distance and forgiveness on off-centre strikes, the One Length irons in the new Cobra F9 Speedback range are another deserved entry into our 2019 Editors Choice List.
The Speedback shaping has allowed more mass to be added low and wide on the heel and toe. When combined with up to 33g of tungsten in the 4-to 7-irons, the MOI has increased by up to ten per cent, creating more stability for improvements in ball speed, distance, forgiveness and accuracy on longer approaches. Additionally lie angles have been modified in the One Length irons, while wider soles in the 4- to 6-irons aid a higher launch.
As a result the new King F9 gave us, on average, 1mph more ball speed with the same club speed, leading to 2-3 yard-longer carries than the previous generation King F8. We also felt that the gains in forgiveness were more apparent, specifically the ball speed and accuracy preservation on strikes away from the sweetspot.
We also liked the inclusion of the Cobra Connect shot-tracking system which adds significant value.
These irons look very inviting to hit behind the ball and feel explosive off the face. They are user friendly from a wider area which mid-to-high-handicappers will appreciate. Admittedly in the mid and long irons the back of the sole is visible at address which may put some off, however given the overall performance this is a minor detail.
To conclude, those golfers seeking a fast, stable and forgiving iron will no doubt enjoy the Cobra F9 Speedback One Length irons and the performance they deliver. We did, and therefore inclusion in our Editors Choice was all but a certainty.
