Cobra King Tour irons review: NCG Summary
Cobra have washed-up a unconfined job putting together a player’s iron that is playable for increasingly than just the peerage player. I love how the King Tour iron looks overdue the ball, and it feels unconfined on impact.
This is perfect for players who are looking for a players iron with some help and forgiveness but don’t want to move to a hollow-bodied club.
- Classic-looking iron with a thin top line
- Fast wittiness speeds wideness the face
- Forgiving on off-centre strikes
- Quite a lot of offset for a player’s iron
The Cobra King Tour iron is stunning. Its shaping is so wipe it feels traditional; over the wittiness you can’t tell that the throne is packed with technology that’s going to help you get the wittiness up in the air easier and be increasingly forgiving on off-centre hits.
The when of the club isn’t all too variegated from Cobra’s King CB iron, which is a good thing, only there’s a TPU insert in the when cavity. This can’t be seen at write on any of the irons, which is great.
I am exactly the player that these irons are aimed at. A pretty fast swing, but not really a good unbearable wittiness striker to warrant using blades; but desperately disillusioned well-nigh my own worthiness and want to use a players’ iron.
The Cobra King Tour irons are the solution to this mess. They squint good unbearable to fool me into yoyo I’m a good player but pack unbearable of a dial in the throne to provide the help I need.
You can straight yonder finger the power in these clubs. Shots seem to shoot from the squatter despite soft finger from the multi-material heads, I’m not surprised these have gone straight into the bag of Rickie Fowler, a long-time pure stipule player.
These irons full-length Cobra’s industry-leading 5-step forging process, which allows them to centre the CoG with lattermost precision, and makes them finger so soft. On the when of the head, Cobra has placed an aluminium medallion just whilom a TPU insert which makes the sweet spot worthier and boosts wittiness speeds on off-centre hits.
I hit these irons immediately pursuit the King Tour MB irons on a soaking wet day in Lisbon and was extremely pleased to pick up something increasingly forgiving. To say I had problems keeping hold of the grips, I was worldly-wise to hit them pretty solid and remarkably straight.
The distances I hit aren’t mind-blowingly long, but they felt really strong. These irons are not the solution for players looking for increasingly distance, but that’s not what they’re designed for. For all the clubs in the King Tour series, it’s all well-nigh control.
An interesting bit of technology in the King Tour irons is the CNC-milled undercuts in the when of the head. The channels that the TPU insert fit into are all milled at variegated sizes and at variegated angles depending on which iron throne it is.
This is to be worldly-wise to move the CoG to a place that’s optimal for wittiness flight. higher in the short irons so that they dont pop up, and lower in the longer irons so that golfers can increasingly hands get the wittiness up in the air, for increasingly stopping power into the greens.
I really liked that I could flight the short irons down, and hit low half shots that the wind couldn’t touch. I play a lot of links golf, and at this short iron, tenancy is really important.
I thoroughly enjoyed hitting these irons, and hit them multiple times throughout the testing week. I am drawn to these irons considering they have a short stipule length and sit quite meaty overdue the wittiness and considering they unquestionably get airborne consistently, I finger like a player too.
Forgiveness isn’t the first foible that comes to mind when selecting a new player’s iron, but without hitting these, it has been quite difficult moving when to the blades I’ve been delivering for a couple of months now. They finger incredibly soft and shots from them are really predictable. They veritably could end up in my bag for the 2023 season.

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 undertow rained, a lot, 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.
