Golfers and technology have been intertwined for some time. This technology is seen in various facets of the game, from GPS devices to how and what clubs are made of. Cobra Golf has been a leader in the blending of technology with their products. The Cobra King F8 irons are the company’s most innovative clubs, to date. We go over the improvements that have been made over previous irons and the exciting, new features of the F8 irons.

Cobra Connect

The Cobra Connect sensor, powered by Arccos, first appeared in the King F7 drivers. It tracks shot distances and stats, sending wirelessly to your smartphone for analyzing. Now, Cobra is offering that technology in the King F8 irons.

New sets come with Cobra Connect sensors in the grip to track every shot with every iron using the Arccos 360 app. To make the deal even better, when you buy a new set of King F8 irons, you’ll receive extra sensors for your woods, wedges, and putter (a $250 value). With sensors on every club in your bag, you’ll be able to track your performance and find where you can improve.

TECFLO Technology

The Cobra King F8 irons upgrade the TECFLO technology from the King F7 irons. As a reminder, Cobra’s TECFLO technology progressively designs each head for the best launch and spin characteristics.

Head Construction

Cobra King F8 irons, like the King F7s, have 3 sets of clubhead construction. They range from fully-hollow to cavity back designs. The King F8 4-7 irons feature full, hollow construction for high launching shots. Moving to the 8-PW, a cavity back design allows for pin-point approach shots and consistent launch conditions. The gap and lob wedges feature a more traditional, blade-like design with a small cavity for added forgiveness and precision near the green.

Progressive Spin

The grooves on each set (as described above) of King F8 irons are optimized for spin. Long irons have milled V-grooves to lower spin allowing for more distance.  Mid-irons rock milled U-grooves, providing ball flight control and accuracy. Lofted wedges have milled U-grooves which are packed tighter together for max spin and precision on shots around the green shots.

Other Features

The 4-7 irons feature Cobra’s PWRSHELL with E9 Tech faces. PWRSHELL creates more ball speed with a 20% thinner face that flexes at impact. E9 Tech is a variable face thickness feature that gives more ball speed on mishits. Shots struck away from the sweet spot aren’t penalized as much.

Carbon fiber medallions on the back of the irons produce better sound and feel. The lightweight material also lowers the CG for high launching shots.

F8 One Length

Cobra returns the One Length option in the F8 line. The King F8 One Length have the same tech as their variable length counterparts. The clubs are all 7-iron length and weighting, for consistent swing and feel in every iron.

New to the F8 One Length set is the ability to create a combo set. Cobra developed one length hybrids to blend seamlessly with the irons.

How Will Your Game Improve

The design upgrades in the Cobra King F8 irons make them a solid performing game-improvement club. Using Cobra Connect for every club in your bag is going to help you improve your game even more.
