Cobra's King F7 and Forged one length irons
Ever had that special iron in your bag that just seems to feel right?
That iron that you hit sweeter and more consistently than the others?
The iron that has you saying “why can’t I hit all my other clubs like my seven iron?”
Well, Cobra Golf may have the solution for all golfers who have pondered that same
PGA Tour pro Bryson DeChambeau, who clinched his card for 2017 via the web.com playoffs
last month, has inspired Cobra to release a range of their new KING F7 and Forged irons that
are equipped with identical length shafts.
For those who don't know, DeChambeau is not a cookie-cutter tour pro. A fan of the Hogan
cap and unorthodox methodology, he subscribes to the theory of having every iron in his
bag the same length as his seven iron.
And this is where Cobra have taken DeChambeau's abstract approach and run with it.
Their new KING F7 and Forged One Length irons, due to be released in late November, have
identical length shafts - which are about the same length as a regular seven iron (37¼
The philosophy behind DeChambeau's and now Cobra’s decision to have matching iron
lengths is simple - the same swing is required for every club.
With regular irons, which Cobra are now calling their Variable length range, a golfer’s
posture, ball position and spine angle all change according to the length of each iron.
However, having identical shaft lengths reduces these variables – meaning the setup
position is exactly the same for a four iron as a wedge.
The Cobra KING F7 will appeal to high handicappers with its cavity back credentials while the
Cobra KING Forged model that DeChambeau uses features tungsten inserts on the heel and
toe of the sole to increase control and assist with shot shaping.
As it is often said, consistency is the key to playing good golf. And Cobra believes their KING
F7 and Forged one length offerings should lead to a more consistent swing.
Which should lead to a more consistent strike. Which should lead to a simpler and easier
way to play golf.
Now, there are a lot of shoulds in there, but when you boil it down the Cobra KING F7 and
KING Forged one length irons will be like having a whole bag of your most trusted iron to
call upon no matter the circumstances.
And that should inspire confidence for those who need it most on the course.

The latest release of the RTX range arrives with an improved CG location, rougher milled face and specific grinds to suit each individual golfers requirement.

This is a great, but expensive time of year for golf 'geeks' like myself. With all manufacturers releasing their latest hardware to the world in the space of a few months.

This blog has been heavily influenced on a question that I personally wanted answering.What really is the difference between the Bushnell Tour V3 Vs the Bushnell Tour V4? My first impression was "Oh these look very similar". With more research, I also realised that they do feature very similar specs to each other. But it wasn't until I [...]
