    I'm looking forward to seeing what MC participants pick these up. These look like a bit too much club for me, but I'm a big fan of the look of these, and the DBM finish seems like it should do very well for those that like the dark finish on their irons.

    if the finish is anywhere close to my king forged pros, they will be stunning in hand, if I didn't have a new bag coming this Spring, that would be a ponder for sure

    Clubs are high on the must try/want list this year. Love the color, finish is said to hold up well and Cobra Connect included...yes please! But why only 5-PW? Does that mean that if you want a 4i you have to go utility?

    I think these would be perfect for you. The originals were long; these with the thinner face getting higher ball speeds is noteworthy.

    The stock shafts are also so solid.

    I'm in lust with this set. I love the black finish and the changes they have made sound like it makes a killer performer. I'm really interested in the stock shaft offering as well and how they set up throughout the set. A combo of these irons and replacing my 4 hybrid with a utility iron are going to be a huge ponder this year.

    Great read JB, lotsa great information. The utility irons got my attention for sure. There is something about blackened steel shafts that intrigue me and ooze coolness.

    the cobra connect is very cool as well, I like the idea of having that inside the grip, will there be a way to buy the grip at some point to retrofit my "old" cobra irons?

    These are schweet looking irons! If they are as forgiving as they look, they just might be the answer.

    So I mistakenly thought the Black was just a new color option, these are actually updated Forged Tech irons with newer tech. Bonus they are available LH with Recoil 760 ES SmacWraps shafts. Just went to top of my list to demo shortly. Good job Cobra!

    These look so darn good and sound as though Cobra has engineered them to perfrom as well, if not better, than they look. I'm sure they will be in plenty of bags, hopefully including mine, at the Morgan Cup!
