What To Look For: Cobra King F7 Irons

Cobra King F7 irons

For 2017, Cobra introduces the King F7 irons and King F7 One Length irons. Each of these iron sets delivers distance and forgiveness in a unique design. Let’s take a look at each club, seeing how Cobra uses design and innovation to produce these qualities.

King F7 Irons

With the King F7 irons, Cobra provides a set forgiving in long irons and performance driven in short irons. Cobra achieves this by utilizing a design philosophy referred to as TECFLO. The 3-5 irons are a hollow design, cast from 17-4 stainless steel. They feature a thin face plate designed to flex at impact. This flex boosts ball speed and distance. Cobra went one step further with the long irons featuring V-shaped grooves to reduce spin allowing for straighter shots. The 6 and 7 irons are “half hollow.” There is a small chamber behind the face which helps with the transition from long irons to short irons. The short irons have a traditional cavity back design cast from 431 milled stainless steel, enhancing feel.

The 6 and 7 irons are “half hollow.” There is a small chamber behind the face which helps with the transition from long irons to short irons. The rest of the short irons have a traditional cavity back design cast from 431 milled stainless steel, enhancing feel. Cobra places U-shaped grooves on the 7-PW helping to increase spin and stopping power on approach shots. The specialty wedges feature wedge style grooves to maximize spin around the green.

King F7 One Length Irons

Along with the traditional, variable length set, Cobra introduces the King F7 One Length iron set. The set is inspired by Cobra staff player Bryson DeChambeau. Uniquely, all clubs in the set are 7-iron length (37.25”) and feature a lie angle of 62.5 degrees. Making all the clubs the same length and lie angle simplifies the setup and swing process. To clarify, a golfer sets up and swings the same with each club. In doing so, it allows for more consistency and tighter shot dispersion.

Traditionally, iron sets have a 3-4 degree gap in between clubs. This gap, along with club length, ensures there is no overlap or gap in distance. As a single length iron, the King F7 One Length changes this norm, achieving the same goal. The gap from the 4-6 irons is 3 degrees starting at 20 degrees on the 4 iron.  The 7 iron loft is 30 degrees. There is then a 5-degree gap going to the 8 iron and continuing to the sand wedge.

 

Summary

Cobra pushes the envelope with the King F7 and King F7 One Length iron sets. Each incorporates unique features to deliver distance and forgiveness in a stylish package. Give both a try and see how they can improve your game!
