Anyone using it? I'm looking at possibly adding one to my bag. I do use a hybrid aswell but sometimes out of the tall stuff a hybrid doesn't cut it and I'm hoping this would be easier to hit than my 3-4 iron.

I'm intrigued by the adjustability of it for sure. but I'll probably end up with a srixon u65 to match my set.

I would recommend the Srixon over the cobra. The Srixon was very easy to launch with the 7s shaft, very clean at address, and gets through the turf well. I got a TM UDI without knowing about the Srixon U65 and I am planning to switch. The cobra was a little bigger sole and I had trouble getting consistent contact.

Just go test them out if you can. I play the cobra utility and have no problems with it whatsoever. But I can also hit the TMB, TM UDI, etc all just fine. I love the adjustability of the king utility so I can dial in my yardage gaps.

I love my 2-3 Cobra King UI. I have a TEE CB ProH 2I as well. The Cobra King UI is a lot easier to hit.

Thanks guys!
The cobras adjustability is what I'm liking. I'm 5 hours from a golf shop to try all those. Maybe il wait

... I have owned and played most of the DI's. TM UDi, Adams Dhy, TE Tungsten CB Pro, Wilson V4, Srixon U45 and I found the King Utility to be the best of the bunch. Love the feel, trajectory, forgiveness and adjustability. I have mine set at 19.5* but have dialed it down on very windy days. My go to club off the tee, say to hit from a good lie and not to bad out of an iffy lie. Pretty much made my 19* hybrid obsolete. All of those listed above were pretty good with some strength and weakness but I love everything about the Cobra. I was already playing the Rogue Black in my driver so the performance of the RB 80y in my King U was a great match for me.

also have owned every single driving iron out ....many several times with several shafts.. and the King Utility is the best in my opinion... its super easy to hit and its the longest one as well.... head isnt draw or hook bias like teh TMB and UDI was for me.. just all around best club.. hit it and make your mind up vs others, but dont skip over it... your missing out if you do

Well I've ordered the king utility with rogue black shaft.
For some reason I couldn't order the c taper shaft. I use that same shaft in my irons.
In my current set up my 4 iron is 22 degrees. So I've ordered the utility to fit in there also deciding wether to buy 2-3 or 3-4 cobra f7 hybrid.
2-3 16-19 while 3-4 19-21
My 3 wood plays at 14.5 but can also change that. Any help would be awsome.

... I would suggest you play the King Utility before ordering a hybrid. I have 2 clubs with very similar distance in the King U and Adams LS 19* hybrid. Yes the LS is a little longer on well struck shots but I usually hit the King dead center and tend to miss the LS a little toward the toe so distance is more often than not a wash for me. The King U has become my go to club for all shots except long 2nd shots on par 5's.

I finally got my utility in with matching c taper shaft as my irons. All I can say is wow! Never hit a better club in my life. Has to be my new favorite. Thing hits so smooth, perfect flight, straight but can draw/fade if needed. Really impressed.

I took notice of your signature and I am now trying to sort the gapping out. I first thought of this as my 4i replacement at 21* which is the same loft as my standard 4i, but I found it almost went as far as my 3Hy at 19* and a lot easier to hit. Wondering if I should do what you did and use the hybrid set at 22* to replace the 4 and crank the utility down as a driving iron, utility/rescue, and bridge the gap between 3w and 4i. The hybrid is easier to hit with more loft, and I can't see the utility being much different off the tee with a little stronger setting. I just instantly set it up the other way thinking it should go all irons, then hybrid. But now second guessing that setup.

I lose a little distance but the versatility more than justifies it's spot in my bag as well as producing better gaping between my 5i and my Utility that I was chocking down on to hit in-between yardage shots.

... Since the Rogue Black is my favorite driver shaft I ordered the aftermarket Rogue Black 85hy shaft and love it in the King Utility. Gives me a few more yards than an iron shaft, especially off the tee and is just as accurate.

Is the consensus that better players should be using the graphite shaft in this utility, and the mid capers stick to steel? I ask because I see all the pros on youtube testing it with a stiff flex graphite shaft, and I tried hitting it with that shaft and couldn't get it airborne. I tried the steel and it was like a different club. Felt like I was swinging my 7 iron but with loads of help. I do have an extra Rogue 85H shaft that I can put in it if I ever decide to. Just wondering if that would be down the road when my swing is better or faster.

I would say that it is not dependent on your cap. Steel generally would be more viable for high speed players while lighter weight shafts would appeal more to slower swing folks, if we are putting people into a box.

I think that it is a personal preference, I have SF 110's in my irons so a 115g CTaper Lite doesn't make a lot of sense for me, but the SF 95 I have chillin makes some sense from a weight and profile progression standpoint. But I think a graphite shaft would help with distance while steel would help with trajectory and control.

I would say that it is not dependent on your cap. Steel generally would be more viable for high speed players while lighter weight shafts would appeal more to slower swing folks, if we are putting people into a box.

I think that it is a personal preference, I have SF 110's in my irons so a 115g CTaper Lite doesn't make a lot of sense for me, but the SF 95 I have chillin makes some sense from a weight and profile progression standpoint. But I think a graphite shaft would help with distance while steel would help with trajectory and control.

Thank you, that makes sense. The steel must keep my swing tempo in check as the trajectory and control is great. With my hybrid and wood I am wanting maximum distance and swing speed so obviously graphite in those. But I do carry a bit heavier shaft as I was getting a bit ahead of my swing and hooking a lot of light graphite shafts. I just wanted as close to an iron replacement as possible with the utility, so went with the matching shaft.

Those of you that still have this club, can you get into the head easily to add hotmelt to it?  I have no issues adding hot melt to my Cobra driver and fairway wood because they have the opening in the head for it, and would probably like to do the same if possible to the Utility.  I like my clubs to play heavy (all my clubs are in the D7 range).  I know I can add led tape to the head, but I like the option of the hot melt.

iíve got a 23.5* ping g400 5 iron that I often struggle to elevate off the deck. would the 21-24 king utility be any easier to launch or more forgiving?

I play G400 with stiff graphite. I bag a cobra utility Iron at 20 degrees it has the adilia rouge black shaft in it. I have no issues with it. As a matter of fact Iím excited when itís time to pull it out because itís so easy to hit.

I’d spend $200 on lessons. A G400 5i should launch really high. Yes the utility will launch higher and spin less, but you should really figure out how to strike the 5i before playing with a utility. It won’t be any easier off the deck.

Not really an iron replacement but fills the gap. I also carry a 20 degree hybrid. Just depends on the shot Iím going to take.
