    Confused with Cobra irons

    I was interested in Cobra Fly Z irons then reviewed Cobra F6 irons, then saw Cobra Max irons & now seen Cobra XL irons in American Golf, my dilemma is they are all roughly the same price and all appear to have similar specs & looks, anyone out there who can recommend one over the other, think Cobra have gone a little overboard in the last few years with the amount of irons they produce that don't seem to differ much.

    Re: Confused with Cobra irons

    Haven't got an answer to your specific dilemma but I will say I've just aquired a set of 'King Cobra 3100I/h' irons, all I can say is 'nice' real nice, shall be looking to Cobra for my next set of stix, they produce some tidy looking irons too...

    ps, Titleist are the parent company by the way...

    You posted this before I think, I guess you mean Acushnet? If so it may have been true when those irons were released, but not since 2010.



    To OP

    I think Fly Z were from 2015. The MAX I think will be the SGI options. Agree though lots of options!

    The cobra max irons are the newest set. They are aimed at lower swing speed players. They are light weight clubs aimed at helping the slower swingers get the ball up with decent carry. I hit them and they are so easy to hit and feel decent go. I am going to a demo day tomorrow and I am looking at the fmax one length irons.

    I ended up with the fmax one length irons 7-SW in graphite
    I realy liked the one length concept and was getting decent gapping through the set.

    The fmax irons are super easy to hit and I was getting decent height on them which I struggle with . Looking forward to getting them

    Let us know how you get on with'em, real interested in a set myself but can't seem to find any 'real world' reviews on'em, only thing I did find was a set on eBay, looked very much like they'd hardly been used n'all, maybe some kind of omen...

    should have in a week, the thing I like is they are so easy to hit and the mats we were using were not the best and still could hit them well. What I did notice is my carry distance with these we're the same as I get total distance with my current set. So I was 8-10 yards longer. Wher I think I will benefit is in the higher lofted clubs as that's where I struggle.
