Cobra’s King OS Irons deliver “largest Sweet Zone ever”



You can’t talk about Cobra new King OS irons without a list of superlatives. They’re the largest iron heads Cobra has ever made, have the largest “Sweet Zone” of any Cobra iron and are the first Cobra iron at the USGA’s COR Limit.


Cobra’s first set of oversize irons, the King Cobra Oversize, were launched in 1994.

You probably won’t find the King OS (oversized) irons in the bags of low-handicap golfers, but much like the Cobra Oversized irons released more than 20 years ago the clubs can help weekend warriors enjoy the game more by helping them hit iron shots higher, farther and more consistently.


A tungsten toe weight, positioned rearward and close to the sole, helps optimize the CG of the King OS irons.

The King OS’s use a hollow-bodied construction with a lightweight face and sole design Cobra calls “PWRshell” to create faster ball speeds across the face. Tungsten toe weights also used to optimize the center of gravity (CG) position of the irons, and each iron’s club face is milled to improve consistency. Long irons (4-6) use V grooves to reduce spin for added distance, while short irons (7-PW) have U grooves that increase spin. Two wedges (GW, SW) are also available, and their grooves are designed specifically to create extra spin from scoring range.


“Really the key to distance is lower CG, which is a big challenge when you create a larger iron,” said Jose Miraflor, Senior Director of Product Marketing at Cobra Golf. “Our multi-material cavity construction and strategically placed tungsten weighting in our King OS irons allows us to place CG lower, which ultimately delivers more speed and higher launch.”


King OS irons ($999 steel, $1099 graphite for eight pieces) are in stores November 25. Stock shafts are True Temper’s XP 85 (steel) and UST Mamiya’s Recoil 460 ES (graphite). The stock grip is Lamkin’s Ace Crossline (black).

    Can’t say I agree with removing grooves from (or not grooving) the face. What if the golfer happens to hit on the perimeter of that circle? Flyer city.

      Yeah, probably not. That’s a very small gap, I doubt this is going to be an issue.

        If you hit the ball on that “grooveless” area, the fact that 1/3 of a dimple won’t grab some grooves will be the least of your problems. Maybe the “flyer” will make up for missing the center of the face by that much.

      I’ve tried them all and in my opinion they are for me. I take it you’re not a Cobra fan…

    I made the switch from PING to COBRA at the beginning of this year and couldn’t be happier. Best clubs on the market in my opinion.

Spotted: New Kirkland driver hits USGA conforming list



This week, Kirkland’s all-new driver landed on the USGA conforming list.

The driver is the latest club from Kirkland to land on the list, following in the footsteps of the brand’s irons, balls, wedges and putter.

Per the USGA conforming list, the driver will be available in 10.5 degrees and will come in a right-handed model.

There is no official confirmation that the driver will be available at retail in the future. However, a driver was spotted amongst Kirkland’s upcoming clubs earlier this year and was listed as costing $199.99.

In our forums, our members have been sharing their early thoughts on the driver. Here are a couple of posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • BirdieBoy1: “Yeah, that’s clean. Instantly reminded me of a Titleist. Curious on price and performance, but amazing performance might not matter if it’s decent for $250 or less.”
  • molecularman: “You know YouTube is going to explode with reviews of this driver. I’m excited to see them all. I have no doubt the driver will perform decently. But hopefully, it will sound decent.”

Spotted: Adam Scott unveils new Miura irons



In our forums, our eagle-eyed members have been sharing their thoughts on Adam Scott’s new Miura irons.

On Tuesday, Scott shared images of the new irons on his Instagram, saying: “Unboxing a fresh set. Grinding by Mr. Miura himself.”

Back in August, we reported that the 2013 Masters champion replaced his Titleist 620 CB mid/short irons with Miura’s KM-700 model (6-9 iron). Scott’s new Miura irons appear to be a modified version of the KM-700 model.

Scott will likely put the irons in play for the first time at this week’s Butterfield Bermuda Championship.

  • craz-e: “Love the KM 700’s, Adam must be like a kid in a sweet shop.”
  • glm: “I could see those in my bag.”
  • jaffabell: “Are we thinking less weight in the toe side to help closure rate? Surely that part of the sole will have minimal impact on the turf.”
