Cobra releasing new Copper Series irons and RF Forged MB

Published

on

If you loved the look of the Cobra limited edition RF Proto Rev33 irons but were looking for an iron more forgiving to your golf game—or more friendly on your wallet—you’re in luck. The new Copper Series features some of the most popular irons in the company’s lineup, along with a new version of the King RF blades in a stunning copper finish.

King RF Forged MB Copper

The new Cobra RF MB blades share all the same features as the limited edition Rev33, except for the one key difference being the new RF MB’s are forged to final shape through a precise five-time forging process with the face and grooves being CNC milled—versus the Rev33 irons being 100 percent CNC milled to spec.

This change in the process produces an equally precise iron but at a friendlier price compared to the limited edition set.

Just like Rickie’s gamers, the RF MBs have a tungsten weight positioned in the toe to locate the CG directly behind the middle of the iron’s face to enhance stability and feel.

The King RF Forged MB irons will be available in right-handed only and come 4-iron through pitching wedge with KBS C-Taper 120 steel shafts, along with Lamkin Crossline Connect grips in the stock configuration. They are priced at $1,399.

King Tour & Forged Tec Copper irons

For the golfer looking for a compact cavity back, Cobra is also offering the recently released King Tour irons produced using MIM in copper.  Here’s a refresher on Metal Injection Molding:

It’s a process using a mixture of 304 stainless steel metal powder, which is heated and injected into a mold. Using a sintering process, the metal is heated to a higher temperature than forging (1340°C vs. 1200°C), which provides a smoother grain flow structure versus forged and cast to maximize soft feel.

Much like the RF MB, the multi-material King Tour irons have a tungsten weight inserted into the toe section to precisely locate the CG to the middle of the face.

The King Tour irons will be available in right and left-handed and come 4-iron through pitching wedge with KBS $-Taper 120 steel shafts, along with Lamkin Crossline Connect grips in the stock configuration. A 3-iron and gap wedge are also available through custom orders. They are priced at $1,399. 

(The King Tour irons will continue to be available in the standard chrome finish in right and left-handed)

Now, for those golfers who put a premium on distance, Cobra is also offering the King Forged Tec in copper with all the same technology you know and love from this compact hollow design.

The hollow iron heads are filled with foam microspheres to produce a soft and solid feel at impact and the face features what Cobra calls a forged PWRSHELL insert to maximizes ball speed and launch across the entire face.

The King Forged Tec irons will be available in right and left-handed (variable length only) and come 4-iron through pitching wedge, with a 3-iron and gap wedge available through custom orders. The stock configurations include KBS $-Taper lite in steel and Project X Catalyst 80 (x and s flex) and 60 in R-flex along with Lamkin Crossline Connect grips. The irons are priced at $1,199.  

(The chrome version of the irons will continue to be available in right and left-handed, in both variable and One Length, right and left-handed)

Final details

All three of the copper iron sets will be available at retail and through cobragolf.com starting March 12.

They will also include Cobra Connect powered by Arccos and come with a free 90-day trial of Arccos Caddie.

    Funny, I didn’t even notice the RF until you guys mentioned it. I guess I have always been one of those guys that didn’t let the color on the sole of a club or what’s printed/etched on the back of an iron bother me. Now the top of a driver, fairway or hybrid, yes. Solid looking irons across the board.

    The blades would be sooooo much better without that awful RF branding. Seems like a nice guy but I don’t want his logo on my irons!!

      Glad to know im not the only one!
      Rickie is one of my favorite guys on tour. Mostly for his attitude/demeanor and how he treats everyone.
      If they didnt have his initials i would 100% be picking up a set. As of right now im 50/50 leaning more towards getting another set of last years black MBs.

      Couldnt agree more!
      Im a big fan of Rickie. Great attitude/demeanor/role model for kids.
      I dont want his initials on my clubs specially that pronounced. Real bummer too bc i really want to order a set of these.

        Seriously guys? Who cares. Could mean “Ready Fore” or something. If you dig the irons and can play them get them. Grind it off if its such an issue or put a piece of tape over it. Rickie is awesome but even if I hated him I wouldn’t care. Just golf irons. Sick blades at that with ZERO offset. I want to try them big time but while I hate offset it helps me.

A Masters-winning Scotty Cameron putter is up for sale

Published

on

If you have ever wanted to own a putter used to win the Masters, here is your chance. No, it’s not a putter from Tiger, Phil, or Jordan Spieth, but it is still a very special flatstick from a two-time winner.

Golden Age Golf Actions has the one and only Scotty Cameron used by Bernhard Langer to win the 1993 Masters up for sale now, and the asking price is just under $45,000.

Not only does it hold a place in history with the tournament but also for putter maker Scotty Cameron. Here are the deatils from the auction:

“Offered here is what many consider the Scotty Cameron “Holy Grail” – the actual putter that launched Scotty Cameron’s career. This is Bernhard Langer’s actual putter used to win the 1993 Masters Tournament. A pre-Titleist Classic I in black oxide finish with initials “B.L.” The original Mizuno stamp on the toe was famously “X’d” out by Scotty Cameron at the following year’s Tournament of Champions at La Costa. Scotty Cameron was gaining a great deal of recognition at the time, and did not want Mizuno to keep showing up on the Darrell Survey that tracked manufacturers’ clubs being used at each PGA Tour event.”

“The offered putter not only won the Masters Tournament, but it is at least partially responsible for the entire putter market today. Most people don’t collect wedges or drivers or 3-irons. They collect putters; and you could make an argument that without this putter, the entire collector market would be quite a bit different today. 35 1/4”
