Can somebody help me with my order?
The standard length for a King Forged Tec Black 5 iron is 38,25 inch with other brands it is 38 inch.
Does Cobra measures them different or are they really 0,25 inch longer?

thanks

I read on their site that the arcos sensor adds 1/4 inch that doesn’t count for playing length.

Still, specs show the Forged Tec Black 5 iron at 38.5 inches, and I consider standard to be 38, so 38.25 still would be 1/4 inch longer to me.

I actually prefer Mizuno standard, which is 37.75 inches for 5 iron. People say they are just measuring with the grip off but everytime I compare a Mizuno to another brand, the Mizzy is 1/4 inch shorter, which I like. All about control and comfortableness.

Those Black Cobras really are cool looking.
Ping G400 9 degrees, Ping Tour stiff shaft, 65 grams
Callaway XHot2 Pro 3 wood, 15 degrees, Aldila Tour Green stiff shaft
Callaway XHot2 Pro 5 wood, 17 degrees, Aldila Tour Blue stiff shaft
Titleist 816 H1 hybrid, 19 degree set to 20, Diamana Blue 60S shaft

Miura CB57 5-PW, Nippon Modus 125 stiff shafts, soft-stepped
Ping i200, 4-PW, power spec lofts, Dynamic Gold 120 stiff shafts
Mizuno S5 50-degree gap wedge, Nippon 1150 stiff shaft
Callaway Mack Daddy 2 54-degree wedge, S grind, DG wedge shaft
Callaway Mack Daddy 4 Raw, 58-degree wedge, X grind, DG S200 shaft
Edel Rogue putter (thick blade), 34 inch, 71 degree lie, 2 degrees loft, 100-gram round Pure grip
Argolf Avalon (small, semi-circle mallet) 34 inch, 71 degree lie, 2 degrees loft, 100-gram round Pure grip.
