    Very similar look to the Adams A12OS irons. Always thought Adams made the best game improvement irons. It's great to see Cobra pick up the torch and crank out some good looking game improvement irons.

    I love the look of these irons! Cobra just keeps improving these irons. Very happy they improved the performance of 4-7 irons. Plus they are offering OL again! Happy to see Cobra continue to up their gamers.

    Amazed at how much tech they can pack while keeping the top line that thin. My only real worry would be the back sticking out at address with the long irons.

    I still love my F6 irons, but if I'm still looking for a GI iron in a year, these are way high on my radar.

    Stubby is a good way to put the look of these irons. The in-hand pics JB put up look way nicer imo--they almost look like the AP3 from the side. Hopefully we can get a top down look to see how much junk in the trunk these have at address (if any). Those hybrids look pretty slick too, would love to hear more about those as people start to test them out.

    Size wise they would be closer to the AP1 if you use Titleist as a comparison. The AP3 would be closer to the Forged TEC, which based on reviews is one of the favorites in the class.

    It looks like these irons have a "Hump" at the bottom like the Exotics EXS Irons.
    I assume that is to get the weight lower than the contact point.

    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.
    I was coming in here to ask you when these were going in play haha - Glad it happened already!!!

    The profile is wildly different visually when in hand versus at address. So much going on, yet most of it hidden.

    How was the sound overall, not just the transition? that was something we talked about a lot after leaving.... how much that has improved with this style of iron.

    The sound is really similar to that of most irons in their class. I hit these and the Bridgestone Tour B Forged side by side on the range and couldn't tell much difference.
    The best descriptor I can use is "thwack" if that makes sense. Its not muted, and fairly solid sounding.

    It really is. I was just thinking in comparison to the F7 line, which was two years ago and how much better these were in my hand...And I liked those irons a lot.

    These look really good! I'm curious what tweaks they made specific to the OL version. From the F7 to F8, they worked a lot on trajectory, in both long and shorter clubs, and changed the lie angles. I wonder how close to perfection they think they are with OL.
