The COBRA MAX irons are designed for the higher handicap golfer. An easy to hit set equipped with TechFlo. TechFlo utilizes half hallow technology in the longer irons increasing forgiveness, cavity back designs in the 8,9 and PW irons and a speciality wedge design to help you improve your score.

I played these today and was really impressed. Very easy to hit in a far more traditional package than the Bafflers that came before. Many internet golfers, even Cobra fans will dismiss these and go straight for the King line but that would be a mistake. For $599 these are a bargain and deserve a look.

at $599, what is the set configuration?

That price point isn't bad at all.

$599 is a bargain if that's like 5-GW.

I enjoyed the bafflers....thinking I would definitely enjoy these. Love me some GI/SGI irons that simply make the game easier. And these definitely look better than the Baffler XL's.

4-GW, and the GW is much more traditional than you would expect in an SGI set like this. I added some in hand pictures.

Reminds me of the MPH4 (?) technology, but in a much nicer price range.

4-GW, according to the Cobra site. That's a really aggressive price.
Wow. This may sound odd to some, but if they could get these in Rickie's hands for just one photo shoot and put that picture in stores these would be hard to keep on shelves.

These for me are far better than the Bafflers. I was not a fan of the looks in the previous sets. These I could game easily.

And the progressive set makeup is awesome, absolutely love that.

I think you could be right. They will be passed over because they are not part of the King line but these are a terrific set, especially at this price point.

IMO the King line is still so new to the normal non THPer consumer lol to that guy, Rickie plays Cobra and he can get a brand new set of nice looking Cobras for hundreds less than anything else in the SGI category

I thought so as well, I love the matte top line. They will not be confused for a players iron but they look really good in hand compared to many in the same category.

Love the actual pictures of the irons rather than the drawings. Love the backside of that wedge!

These surprised me quite a bit. Price point wise, they are as solid a new release as I have seen in recent year.

Wow that's a solid pricepoint for those. Cobra has been making some very solid irons the past few years.

Recoils are an option however a pricey one. KBS Tours and Dynamic Golds are no charge options which is something I wasn't expecting and is another big plus with these in my book.

I'm assuming stock is that FST offering like other Cobras have had? If so those are decent free upgrades!

Yes, stock steel offering is a Cobra branded FST offering. It pairs and feels fine but it is also nice to have options.

If the FSTs are rebranded from their pro series then those are a very serviceable stock offering.
