Back in 2016, Cobra Golf released the KING Forged CB/MB irons that featured a sleek tour design that immediately went into Rickie Fowler’s bag. Fast forward to today and the company has a new iteration of the progressive iron set that utilizes the same design that Fowler trusts to deliver the precision he is looking for.
“These high-performance COBRA irons consistently deliver the workability and shot-shaping control that I need to be competitive on course. I’ve been playing them for a few years, and know better players are going to appreciate the sleek look and soft feel, along with the ability to work the ball without sacrificing forgiveness,” said Fowler.
The set flows from the cavity back shape in the 4-6 irons to the traditional muscle back in the 7-PW. The CB design, features a new muscle cavity that helps maintain a workability while still offering a tour trajectory and soft feel, as well as added forgiveness on those misses towards the perimeter. As you move into the MB design in the scoring clubs, the goal for the set is precision shot shaping and scoring.

Tour Proven Blade Shape – a classic blade shape delivers a compact look preferred by better players and increases precision and workability to optimize scoring.
CNC Milled Face & Grooves – CNC milling delivers the most precise face and groove structures possible for improved spin and trajectory. COBRA utilizes their wedge grooves through the set to enhance trajectory and spin control.
Tungsten Tour Weighting – reconfigured to match Fowler’s irons on Tour, two tungsten inserts are strategically positioned on the toe and in the center of the club head for added forgiveness, feel and trajectory control.
Flow Set Design – a progressive set composition flows gradually from forgiving, easier to hit cavity back long irons (2-6) to muscle back short irons for an emphasis on precision and scoring.
Diamondized Black Metal (DBM) Finish – COBRA’s most durable, visually appealing, black satin finish diffuses sunlight, helping to maintain a sleek look over a long period of time, while offering extreme resistance to wear for longer lasting, better-looking irons.
COBRA CONNECT –The COBRA CONNECT, Powered by Arccos system features electronically enabled grips that work in conjunction with the Arccos Caddie app to give users the ability to track their stats and improve their game.
For our loft peepers (those that spend a lot of time focusing on lofts), you can see that the new Cobra KING Forged CB/MB set is going to side more on traditional when it comes to the numbers, which makes sense given the shaping. This will give you a better idea of where your
gaps lofts are, as you move down into your wedge setup.
