    Cobra One Length Irons

    Im so intrigued by the one length irons that have been released in the last few years. I first watched Bryson DeChambeau when he was an amateur and it just totally baffled me that all his clubs were the same length and the grips were huge!

    Has anyone tried the One Length set from Cobra and what were your thoughts? Ive seen reviews on youtube but i feel at times they arent honest as they are given the clubs for free.

    I've hit them, i loved them but wouldnt buy them. Hard to expand but it was hard to trust hitting 7iron length clubs the distance of a 5iron.

    Re: Cobra One Length Irons

    Ive hit them too
    PW and 9 iron go real high, and real long
    7 and 8 irons easy to hit and fly miles
    5&6 irons about normal type distance, so couldn't get gaps between the 7/8

    Heard others say similar , that gapping is an issue

    Gap wedge same length shaft as a 7 iron, just seems bizarre and not right at all too

    Crossfield did a video on them and he managed to get that gapping. He surprised himself as he didn't expect it. He is a pro though so his ball striking will be very consistent.

    I agree with you regarding the length on the "short irons". It would have made more sense to me to have one length clubs from 5-7/8 and then normal sized ones from 9 upwards. It is the longer length that people struggle with.

    Re: Cobra One Length Irons

    i have ordered the combra max one lengths and when i tested them they were easy to hit. I am not the best with irons and struggle with carry, i carry a 4,5,6 hybrid so i went for 7-sw with the gap wedge. I found i was at least 10 yards longer carry with these than my current set. Still waiting for them to arrive though. I liked the height the wedges were giving me as i could get the ball to stop quicker on the green.

    Re: Cobra One Length Irons

    I would love to try them. I like the idea of my 5 iron being the length of a 7, but I hate the idea of my PW being the length of a 7. So it would be interesting.

    Its really bizarre that you say that youve gone for the one lengths in your situation. I feel confident with anything under a 7 in my hands and i think the shorter the club its easier to make good contact. Im more intrigued about them for the 4,5,6 irons because if it can make them as easy as a 7 to hit they will be successful IMO.

    i am hopeless with irons below 6, i have a 3,5 w and 4,5,6 hybrids. I love hitting my woods i can hit them straight and a decent distance for me. I think the one lengths will work for my as i tend to have an upright posture and the longer length scoring clubs seemed fine for me.

    my swing speed is slow and even the cobra rep said hybrids in the 4,5,6 would be better for me than the one length iron as i would struggle to get decent distance and height with them

    That would defeat the point though. The idea is one length, one set up, one swing. Nothing changes so consistency improves.

    That works for Bryson. It doesn't really work if the one swing you have is wonky.
