Cobra KING F9 Speedback One Length Iron Set
Who’s It For
Cobra’s new KING F9 Speedback One Length irons would qualify as a game-improvement product and as such will offer golfers impressive forgiveness and distance, as well as naturally high launch conditions. As it relates to the One Length F9 irons, the one-length concept has become more mainstream in recent years in light of Bryson DeChambeau’s success on the PGA Tour. More specifically, each iron in the set comes at the standard length of a 7-iron, with the idea being that golfers can enjoy more consistency by having one setup and ball position with each iron in their bag. For mid- and high-handicappers who are looking to improve their iron play and potentially simplify things, the F9 One Length irons could be a great option. Of course, for those who are interested in the F9 irons but not the one-length system, Cobra has progressive sets available as well.
The Tech Story
Driving the performance of the new F9 Speedback One Length irons is what Cobra has done from a weighting standpoint. Most notably, a low, back weight that spans the back of the clubface combines with tungsten that has been positioned in the heel and toe to provide the optimal CG position to achieve fast ball speeds and high launch, as well as impressive MOI, the latter of which will of course help provide better results on shots struck from the heel or toe or low on the face. Cobra’s E9 Pwrshell clubface, meanwhile, is driving ball speed and thanks to its variable face thickness design helps protect ball speed on off-center strikes. The F9 One Length irons also feature CNC milled faces and grooves to provide precision as it relates to spin and trajectory, and a multi-material medallion has been positioned in the cavity to dampen vibrations at impact to produce a more pleasing sound and feel. Also worth noting is the progressive hosel design that has been implemented into the F9 design, as hosels in the longer irons are shorter to create a lower CG position for higher launch, while the hosels in the shorter irons are longer to move the CG higher, with the result being that players can control their ball flight more easily with their scoring clubs. And finally, as is the case with the entire F9 line, F9 One Length irons come standard with COBRA CONNECT technology, allowing players to pair their irons with their smartphone to track stats and identify shot tendencies.
