Irons Test 2014: Cobra BiO CELL+
Cost: £649 steel
Tech: The long and mid-irons feature heavy tungsten in the heel and toe for a higher MOI and faster ball speeds. The short irons feature tungsten centred behind the ball to enhance control and feel.
What we said... JR: “The head is very long from heel to toe but with a slim top edge. Not the prettiest to look at and didn’t feel particularly powerful when struck well. Reasonably easy to hit straight, easy to set up and comfortable at address.” JT: “Has the blade length of a game-improver iron but appears smaller due to the thin top edge. I struggled to hit consistent shots but enjoyed the lack of offset and it was easy to align.”
Pros: Long blade length boosts confidence. Easy to align.
Cons: Not as hot or forgiving as the standard version.
The numbers: Looks: 7 Feel: 8 Forgiveness: 8.5 Workability: 7 Distance Consistency: 9 Dispersion: 8.5
