Cobra Golf use Metal Injection Molding technology to make new King Tour irons “softer than any forged offerings”.
After two years of using Metal Injection Molding to create softer, more precise heads in their wedges, Cobra Golf have launched the King Tour irons with MIM Technology, a process which they claim creates unmatched consistency throughout the set and has produced irons that are softer than any of their forged rivals.

The new players’ irons combine a tour cavity back with precise shaping and the soft feel that all better players desire.
First introduced in the King MIM wedges, Cobra have applied the technology to a full set of irons for the first time and say it has reinvented the way premium irons are designed and manufactured.
MIM manufacturing produces a more precise finished product utilising fewer steps and minimal hands-on post-process polishing, unlike traditional forging and casting processes.

“These irons are softer than any forged offerings on the market, and like their wedge counterparts, offer better consistency in shaping for more precision shot-making on the course,” said Tom Olsavsky, Vice President of R&D for Cobra.

The new King Tour irons have a tungsten weight in the toe which helps to position the centre of gravity behind the hitting zone to aid forgiveness and stability at impact to help keep the ball on target.

There’s also a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) insert behind the hitting zone to help dampen vibrations and create that soft, buttery feel you expect from a players’ iron at impact.
Each iron also benefits from Cobra Connect technology. Powered by Arccos, smart grips on each iron can be synced with the Arccos Caddie app, allowing you to track your shot data and rapidly improve your game. Each set of irons includes a 90-day free trial of the Arccos Caddie app.
The King Tour Irons are available in a 4-PW set in right hand only, with a 3-iron and gap wedge available via custom order.
The irons come with stiff or regular flex steel KBS $-Taper 120 shafts as standard, along with a black Cobra Lamkin Crossline Connect grip. Upgraded shafts and grips are available through custom-fitting.
The stock 4-PW set is available from October 30 priced at £999.
