Cobra’s latest irons might not go down as one of the world’s best-kept secrets, but that doesn’t make the official announcement of the new Forged Tec lineup any less exciting. Golfers were first introduced to Forged Tec back in 2015, and with each release, Cobra has taken the technology and form factor to the next level. After a lengthy wait, today we finally get our first look at the new KING Forged TEC and Forged TEC X irons from Cobra Golf.

That is a great video @Canadan , although I’m not sure I’m more impressed with the irons or the continual 190 yard 7 irons onto the green!

Absolute ponder mode engaged here now, the FT looks and performs incredibly, but the FTx is starting to speak to me. Need to have these in hand as soon as possible!

Nice write up Dean and good video Dan. I really think these are a nice improvement visually, and they have even more tech packed into them. Great performance on the video. I look forward to giving them a demo once they are available.

Great work, @ddec! @Canadan, I’m curious about what appears to significantly similar peak height and descent angles. What were those numbers for you?

I’m really liking Cobra’s spread of irons. So many really solid options that are hard to pass up. The new iteration of Forged TEC looks great!

I really want to see how the FTX plays for me. It doesn’t look too bad but I could always use the extra help.

@ddec great breakdown of all the tech! Definitely much more under the hood than the speculation suggested imo.

@Canadan excellent stuff in the THPTV head to head of the two irons. The sound definitely seems like Cobra came correct and the data is just staggering for speed, but the spin is what caught my eye the most. Great stuff.

Finally we have info! Seems like we have been waiting forever on these. Enjoyed the write up and video. I was hoping to see a bigger spin difference between the 2 heads but these sound like a ton of fun.

Great write and video from Dan, these are going to be popular with a lot of THP’ers that hit them.

Great write up @ddec! I will have to dig into the video comparison later, the FT’s continue to impress me and I’m intrigued on how they improved this years offering.

Interesting there wasn’t a ton of difference between them for you in distance or backspin @Canadan. Camera challenges aside, I definitely saw the more penetrating flight of the x

The THP TV video is 🔥🔥🔥. Nice job @Canadan. It is wild how much more Tungsten the FTx have in them @ 65g. That is a huge amount of weight. Very interesting that they were able to remove that much material elsewhere in the head in order to be able to concentrate that much mass exactly where they want.
