Review: Cobra King Pro Irons
The more sets of irons I test, the more I gravitate toward certain design features that benefit my game the most. They might not be the things that everyone talks about or thinks about, but I’ve found them to be most influential in my success with any set of irons; CG and sole grind. It seems that driver CG is all the talk right now, but irons still aren’t there yet. Most irons I have success with have done something to move mass out toward the toe. Cobra uses tungsten plugs in the toe of each irons head. This pulls some mass away from the hosel and toward the center of the face. I really like how they did it in the King Pro irons. Every head feels very balanced and the weight feels good behind the ball at impact.
The sole grind is the second quality I look for, because turf interaction is huge. It is also why testing club on a mat in your garage or at the range doesn’t fully tell the story of a club. These look to have a sharp leading edge with almost no offset but the sole itself have plenty of camber so that they don’t dig or bounce, negatively affecting the shot. I honestly felt like my rounds with these clubs I’ve had some of my best ball contact of any iron set I’ve put in play. I just didn’t have thin or fat shots with them, it was clean contact shot after shot.

If you are a better ball striker and want to control your shots, the Cobra King Pro Irons are the same ones that Rickie Fowler plays with great success as you’ve seen him at the top of the leaderboard. These irons are going to guarantee that kind of success, but if you have the game, you will really enjoy the great feel, excellent control and great results with these irons. Maybe, just maybe, you’ll be on the top of some leaderboard with these irons in your bag too.
