Ya these are sweet irons!  Yet the thing with a muscle back is they all pretty much do the same thing. Caveat being looks and I think that's what draws the mortals into checking them out. Although it sounds oxymoronic, blades are starting to offer a certain mount of forgiveness. I had never heard, pretty forgiving for a blade let alone sayin it till recent times.
Ho away, we need reviews!  Yet that wi t be for awhile...

I agree with you about the modem day blades being more forgiving.  I currently play the Cally Razr X MBs and they are super forgiving for being in the "blade" category.  These cobras have some meat back there but man do these babies look good.  It's definitely going to be a MB shootout next year.  Fun times!!!!!

I wonder if the orange boxes are indicator of how well you hit them. 1 - topped 2- thin 3 - a little low / high on the face 4 - dead center

Wow these are a real traditional type iron look with a modern twist. There really are some great new iron offerings coming our way. I have been hooked with the cally proto's but these are on the list to try. They will have to wait because the new razr forged is released first.

Optiforce 440 Matrix Black 7M3 X flex
X2Hot 5 wood with stock shaft (cannon)
Apex Pro 4-AW KBS Tour V X flex SS1
Callaway Jaws Wedges 56,60
One spot available any ideas?
Odyssey DF550 blade putter/ Pro v 1 ball

It looks like they did the same thing that Adams did with the MB2s. They lower the cg in the iron making it play like a player cavity back but still looks, feels, and performed like a blade. The smaller companies always make better clubs because it is the only way they make big money.

Driver: PING i25 9.5*; Fujikura Fuel TS 60-Stiff
3 wood: Titleist 915Fd 13.5; Aldila Rouge Black 80-X

Irons: Titleist 716 AP2 4-6, CB 7-9: KBS Tour C-Taper X (loft: 22, 26, 30, 35, 40, 45)
Wedges: Scratch 1018 49*, 53*, 57*; KBS Tour C-Taper S+ (49), S300 (53, 57)
Maltby Custom Grind 59*; True Temper Tour 100-Stiff (Combination of Miura K (except 5 knuckles) and PM Grind)

No idea on release date for right-handed stuff. As far as left handed, here is what I got from Cobra customer service, "Thank you for the inquiry. The Amp Cell Pro Irons will be available as blended set (3-8 CB, 9-PW MB). You will be able to order them through an authorized dealer probably in April 2013."

So I'll be able to order them in April.
Probably.

Awesome...

Looks great. Not sure how I feel about the large Cobra lettering but it's not a deal breaker.

Hopefully there will be an influx of used Cobra S3 Pro irons on the market when these are finally released.

Don't know for sure, but I bet RF will continue to play the irons that he helped design/were custom built for him. Pure conjecture on my part.
