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.
Current lineup:

Callaway Rogue driver, 9 degree, Project X Evenflow Blue S, 75g.
Callaway XR16 3 wood, 15 degree, Fukijura Evo II shaft
Callaway Apex hybrid, 20 degree, Kuro Kage 80HY stiff shaft
Wilson Staff C300 Forged irons, 4-PW, Nippon Modus 105 X shafts
Mizuno S5 gap wedge, 50.08, Nippon 1150 GH Tour shaft
Wilson Staff PMP Tour wedge, 56 degree, tour grind, KBS Hi-Rev 2.0 shaft
Fourteen RM12 58.12 sand wedge, Dynamic Gold wedge shaft
Edel Rogue putter (thick blade), 34 inch, 71 degree lie, 2 degrees loft.
COMING: TaylorMade Hi-Toe wedge, 60 degree
