How do Cobra’s new muscle incision when irons perform? Find out in our Cobra King CB iron review.

Cobra King CB Irons Review: NCG Summary

Cobra King CB irons
4.5 stars rating

These are the most lulu CB irons I have seen in quite a few years. Cobra have simplified the diamond and it has some serious bag appeal.

Cobra’s new 5 x forging process has produced irons that finger elite. There’s still plenty of feedback from off-centre strikes, but centre strikes finger soft with the centred CoG.


  • Contact feels buttery
  • Not super intimidating at address
  • Very little offset for greater control


  • Not the most forgiving irons, so won’t suit poor wittiness strikers.

First Impressions

This is a archetype iron. It could be in the history books from any era with its timeless design. CB irons users tend to stay in the CB model throne for life and tend to be a judgemental tuft who have very specific requirements from their iron. They are definitely going to like the new Cobra King CB. I really like that Cobra have kept the when of the club simple and understated.

NCG Review

I love forged irons, there’s something special well-nigh clipping a well-struck iron off of firm links turf and irons that are not very good quickly get found out. After I heard well-nigh Cobra’s new 5-step forging process I was eager to get my hands on them.

At address, these aren’t as intimidating as you might expect, as the top line is not super thin, and the throne from heel to toe is a good size.

King CB iron

Cobra only sent a 6 iron and 4 iron for the test as the King MB and CB models mix beautifully into a philharmonic set. I loved how the short irons felt. The flight of the long irons was very powerful but they provided wonderfully soft feedback into my hands.

The wondrous finger off of the squatter from the King CB irons is lanugo to Cobra’s 5-stage forging process. This process is longer than the normal forged iron build, but it ensures clubs can be made to tighter tolerances and consistency to ensure each iron is of the highest quality.

Flightscope data

My stereotype distances with these short irons are longer than I thought I’d see. The gapping is spot on, and the left-to-right dispersion is really good. I did have a number of poor strikes in there, which as you would expect with a small players iron did see quite a drop-off in siphon distance.

The Cobra King CB irons have a progressive offset through the set, but as these are clubs designed for tour players and peerage wittiness strikers, there still isn’t really much. You do see increasingly in the long irons to help stop the leaky right shot that players often see, but it’s not pronounced at address.

Cobra have centred the CoG in the King iron series, which gives you unconfined writ over your trajectory and shot-making. It’s important for good players to know that when they make centred contact, they are getting maximum performance out of the club, and you really finger like you’re getting it out of the Cobra King CB.

I really like that this year Cobra have designed their CB and MB range to seamlessly create a philharmonic set. Some golfers would prefer to have one iron set throughout the whole bag but the diamond of the blades and muscle incision backs are practically identical, it could be a unconfined option for players who need a stipule fix

The Cobra King CB irons are a unconfined option for forged iron lovers who want some archetype eye snacks in the bag. They finger phenomenal on a good strike and requite you plenty of feedback on the poor shots. If your grooves are looking a little worn and you want to alimony your irons traditional, these are a terrific option.

Testing Protocol

To test this product we travelled to West Cliffs, a leading European golf undertow just North of Lisbon. The idea was to get some warmer weather and escape our frozen British courses. It, of course, rained, a lot, and was very windy. Each of our test team were allocated a category of golf clubs, fairways, or a specific type of suburbanite or iron.

We gathered data on a Trackman 4 or FlightScope. We used Titleist Pro V1 for all tests. The samples we have are either fully fitted for our testers or ordered in our unsupportable specs. We are then worldly-wise to optimise performance by swapping shafts and playing with the adjustability. As well as that dry testing all of the product was tested on undertow in a comparative environment with other product from the same category. We recognise that no testing process is perfect and just aim to be pearly in our treatment, transparent in our process and unslanted in our feedback.
