Just got an email for a "Try One Length" promotion.  You configure a custom set.  Pay a nominal fee ($28 with shipping) and they send you the set.

I guess if you like them - you keep them, otherwise you send them back.

Anyone biting on this?  I am extremely curious to try Cobra Forged Tec one length irons.

I also noticed on their site that the "demo day" map has an option for "One Length Trial Set". In my area most of them are at golf stores, but a couple are at courses. If there's a trial set available at a nearby course, that might end up being a better option than the trial. I'm a bit hesitant to ever pay full retail without getting fitted. It doesn't say which set, so it may be the F8's  since they should be the most universal fit.

Good luck with them. I haven't tried the ForgedTec One's, but I like my King Forged One's.

I would, but I don't see any lie adjustment options and I don't care much for any of the shaft options on the Forged ONE. I know the Forged TEC aren't for me as I have owned the last generation as well as tried custom fitting for them.

There is a lie adjustment under the custom options.

So I called them -- and I can order a set of Forged Tec OL with customer lie specs, any stock shaft offering, any stock grip offering, etc., and get it sent to me for $28.  If I want to return them -- I just call and they send a call tag (no cost to me to return).   Sounds almost too good to be true.

This is literally one of the greatest deals in golf right now.

Until I clicked on the link I initially thought it was going to be a half set or very limited choices, but it’s not.  You can order a full  custom set of any model with any shaft at any lie and try them with absolutely no strings attached for two weeks. Crazy.

I am literally shocked that they are trying this.  I worked briefly for a start up golf company many years ago that tried this and it failed dismally.  The CEO incorrectly assumed in his business plan that over 33% of the players would simply keep the clubs.  It was actually under 20% and the avalanche of returns sunk the company.

I have no idea how they can afford this.  Even if only half of the clubs come back, what The heck do they do with all the used sets??  Refurbish them all and try to send them back out again??  How much does that cost them per set??  

If anyone has ANY real interest in these clubs, they should definitely give this a shot.

I bet you anything they will offer you a discount when you call them to get your return mail tag if you like them but are on the fence about buying them because of price. They would be insane to not offer you a nice discount to just keep them.  They don’t want them back.  That’s what we did at the company I worked for.

Take my word for it.  Try them and call in to send them back after two weeks even if you love them.  I bet you’ll be offered a discount.

Click on that link in the first post.  All the details are there.  Cobra isnít trying to scam anyone.  You arenít going to get  a surprise charge from them.  There is nothing sneaky about this.  The web site clearly says they will call you and ask you if you wish to keep them if they donít get a phone call from you to order a return mail tag to send them  back.

Itís good to be suspicious to a point, but Cobra has a reputation to live up to.  They arenít wanting to scam  anyone.

That's the set I was looking at too. I play 680 in my 14' Apex and like them.

Anyone have any thoughts between the Forged and Forged Tec? What is similar in forgiveness to the 14 Apex?

BTW -- I was able to build the below set.  And called with a couple of additional customizations.  I told them I wanted 5-9 to swing weight at D1 (with the midsized grip) and D2 for PW and GW (with grip).  I also asked for two extra wraps on the bottom hand only when gripping.

They took the notes and told me that they would ship in the next 3-5 business days.

I did ask them what they do with sets that come back.  They said they sell them in local factory sales and to various eBay vendors that sell used clubs.

I just know I wouldn't spend a grand on the set I'd build and would feel bad for wasting their time ha

I did ask them what they do with sets that come back.  They said they sell them in local factory sales and to various eBay vendors that sell used clubs.

Soooo, try them. Send em back. Then keep an eye on them on eBay. Got it.

Looks like you need to call them to add a custom lie on the forged One.

The greatest deal ever was about a month ago at rock bottom golf. I got a new set of F8 OL combo for $380, minus $25 rewards certificate I had, so $355. Stock set, I don't need any special set up, I love these irons.

Why would the lie angles not all be the same if all the lengths are the same?

And why are the shorter irons flatter? I have my PW/GW/LW at 65.5 at 36"...seems odd.

Don't know. But I'm guessing the designers and engineers at Cobra know what they are doing better than we do.

This is literally one of the greatest deals in golf right now.

Couldn't agree more. If Cobra is in the one-length game for the long term, this greatly benefits them too.

Getting people into this one particular set is one thing. Getting them hooked on one length clubs to where they may upgrade once or twice in the next ten years - thats the ballgame. So if they lose a few bucks on a set here and there, that means nothing to them.

They went to a progressive weighted head, and progressive weighted shafts along with different lie angles throughout the set to give optimal launch angles at the top/bottom of the bag. That was always an issue with the previous F7 ONE and Forged ONE sets. I was seriously considering the Forged ONE set, but it utilizes the old system and I would rather wait and see what they release with a Forged update. The Forged TEC are tempting, but the distance dispersion was too much for me too handle.

I guess I could do what Bryson did to solve this issue, and go Utility in the 4-5, then King blade wedges in the 50/54/58.
