What we say...
Created with Tour Player feedback to provide a forged cavity back iron for ultimate forgiveness and workability. Left Handed available as custom option.
These were the stand out irons in this category, performing magnificently across the board. No mean feat given the wide range of categories and stats we had in place.
Game improving experts Cobra aren't neccessarily noted for their blades but these benefit from the feel you'd associate with a classic, player's iron.
However, that is not at the expense of forgiveness - a quality you certainly do expect from Cobra gear, which gets millions of amateur golfers round their course every week.
The thin topline and minimal offset appealed to our pro, while the cavity back design helped to inspire confidence for eight handicapper Jon when he was standing over the ball.
Tom also noted a very welcome high level of workability and shot shaping ability with the Pro Cbs - often a failing of todays more forgiving clubs.
It is therefore no suprise that the Pro CBs were designed with input from Cobra's Tour Players.
Anyway back to the hard facts of the test: distance wise they performed impressively well too.
We only have flightscope data for the 6-iron and while it was excellent in terms of accuracy and distance it was especially noticeable on the day that the 4-iron was exceptionally long with a beautiful shape of flight.
Because of the way the club looks at address, both of our testers felt that you could really let the ball fly and rip into the ball - yet they did this with minimal risk....as the dispersion stats show.
In summary this is a teriffic set and well worth every penny. Ignire it at your peril.

With a forged cavity back, shorter hosel and lower center of gravity, these irons have been engineered for a high ball flight, while the rounded sole camber improves turf interaction.
It’s Tour-calibre technology with one thing in mind – putting the ball exactly where you want it.
