    I put the ONE Length version in play for one round and will again tomorrow with some THPers. First off, I know I have said it before, but I am a big fan of Cobra Connect. Its a value add that is just not available anywhere else.

    The KING F9 in hand when examining the head look unlike anything I have used in the past. Almost stubby looking, but once you take a few swings, you don't even notice and they nailed a number of items I thought were missing previously. The sound in the lower lofted clubs moving towards the scoring irons really is seamless, despite a number of tech changes.

    The ball flight is high, lands soft and goes LONG! I was about a half a club longer with these than the Honma TW737P set, however it is just a single round, so more coming on that soon.

    Using the OL version, one thing to note is that anybody that struggled getting the lower lofted clubs in the air with the previous versions, that is not an issue. The 5 iron was absolutely lethal for me off the tee on two short par 4s and I am sure the optional 4 iron is the same (I dont have one to test).

    I will have more on this after the round tomorrow.

      Good thoughts JB. Like that they were involved with a shaft manufacturer in creating a type of AMT setup, lighter and more in line with what their experience with OL has guided them to.

      Certainly a distinct look to them, but the tech explanation for that is on point. This is their first set where I feel the potential negatives of OL are dissipated via engineering to the point where the OL is a better choice over variable.

      My first question was going to be sound - thx for the early feedback. It matters more than it should.

        With the loft of that 4 iron only being half a degree less than my 5W, it would be very interesting to compare the distances between the two clubs - I know it isn't comparing like for like, but an interesting observation all the same

        Hopefully my coach will get these (and the rest of the F9 range) in at some point so that I can have a look and give them a hit

          Good stuff, JB! I really like the looks and the price of these. These may be the best looking Cobra irons yet. I have yet to try the one length irons, but I these or the variable lengths would be on my radar if I find myself in the market for new irons. And while I struggle greatly with hybrids, I would love to give the F9 Hybrids a go as well.

            These are pretty stellar looking I’m an unabashed fan of the OL concept and I love seeing Cobra keeping it in the lineup. These looks like they really might be lethal for a lot of people.

              I read the homepage article, I like the looks!!!! Might be my eye, but it doesn't look like there is much offset? It looks really clean to me. Had to tell how big the sole is from the picture but doesn't look that big.
              Driver Maybe something Flash?
              Fairways Some more awesome Flash?
              Irons I have no idea what might go in here!!!
              Wedges probably some MD goodness
              probably something that rolls awesome

                I love the look of that sole, I've been pondering a OL set for quite some time, the F9 might be my first set!

                  In hand pics would be interesting to see. The club head does look to be on the bigger side but there’s obviously a lot of performance romance that should come with that.

                        I'm glad it's not just me - the first look had me thinking "these look odd". But at the same time, maybe constraining to the look of a "traditional" iron limits performance. After all, that basic profile exists from well before CAD and other modeling techniques. Pictures you have with the iron soled look a bit more traditional. Definitely a tech-forward release and that's really cool.

                          @JB are these "Like" Rogue X irons with the Stronger lofts and "Microspheres" or are these more like the Regular "Rogue" Irons?

                            The lofts are in the article on the home page.
                            They are closer to Rogue in terms of loft with each PW being 44

                              very strong lofted, 44° PW and going in 5° increments (!) to the 7

                              with an even lower CG and KBS Tour 90 stock steel, these things are going to launch to the moon with very low spin, pure distance

                              I'd like to see a test of these vs the TaylorMade M CGB
