Cobra Golf is the pioneer in making some of the best single length iron sets, and their Forged Tec One Length Iron Set is among their prime offerings in that category. Single length irons have been around for quite a while but are becoming increasingly popular in recent years. These irons are the sister product of the variable length irons of the same name.
The Cobra Golf 2020 King Forged Tec One Length Iron Set is known for producing one of the finest sounds and has a terrific feel. Their innovative hollow structure design that is filled with foam microspheres deserves credit for that. These clubs have loads of other awe-inspiring features that we’ll discuss in detail below. Whether this single length iron set lives up to the prestigious name of Cobra Golf, we’ll find out.
At first glance, the Cobra Golf 2020 King Forged Tec One Length Iron Set looks nothing short of glamourous. The bright lustrous silver finish looks fabulous and is pleasing to the eye. However, it should be noted that this design is not new. In fact, there are certain TaylorMade and PING irons that look very similar to this iron set.
These irons also feature the famous Cobra Connect embedded in the grip. This allows you to pair your set with the Arccos Caddie app and have access to valuable golf data about your shots.
This single length iron set comes with a noticeable large head than other comparable irons. This might make it slightly more forgiving. You’ll also notice the tungsten weight at the bottom that looks interesting. The design is very orthodox but is still brilliant. All of these irons are 37.5 inches long, which is Cobra’s standard length for 7-irons.
Feel and Sound
Cobra Golf’s entire marketing strategy revolves around Forged Tec One Length Iron Set’s brilliant sound and feel. The hollow construction and thermoplastic foam microspheres are intended to provide a soft buttery feel. This kind of club architecture has become quite popular in the past few years.
However, Cobra’s claims of providing one of the softest feels falls a little short of expectations. After trying out these irons on the golf course and a simulator, we concluded that Cobra Golf is making an overstatement with their claims.
In our experience, shots hit from the middle felt genuinely spectacular. One can feel the impact of the foam microspheres and the dampening vibrations created by them. The mishits, on the other hand, feel entirely different. The shots that hit from the bottom of the clubface feel particularly horrible. This is probably due to the tungsten weighting that is creating an inconsistent feel.
The sound quality is very similar to what you’d expect from a quality set of irons. Despite the inconsistency in feel, the sound quality is relatively consistent due to the larger sweet spot. The sound when the club makes contact with the turf is also very crisp and sharp.
Cobra Golf 2020 King Forged Tec One Length Irons might not have a uniform feel but it scores full marks when it comes to performance. These are one of the most consistent irons in the market. Due to the more prominent sweet spot and the PowerShell clubface, these irons prove to be remarkable in terms of distance, accuracy, and clubhead speed. The King Forged Tec irons can consistently display distance (carry) readings of nearly 180 yards.
The tungsten weighting might be the one to blame for the poor feel, but it makes up for it in terms of forgiveness. This kind of weighting lowers the center of gravity and provides spectacular precision and forgiveness. Even off-center hits are surprisingly accurate from these irons. Interestingly, the King Forged Tec One Length Irons are also simply outstanding in terms of spin, as they give a consistent spin reading of nearly 7000.
Cobra Golf 2020 King Forged Tec One Length Irons might not feel the best as the company claims, however, it is surely among the best sounding ones. The hollow construction and foam microspheres do their job brilliantly, but the tungsten weighting creates a slight dent in that.
This tungsten weighting, along with the PowerShell face, makes this one of the most forgiving irons in the market. These two features also greatly enhance the distance, spin, accuracy, and ball speed.
