REVIEW: Cobra King Tour Irons

A Precise Process for Precision Irons
Irons fall into 2 categories of construction, forged or cast. Most often the better players gravitate toward the forged irons for their feel as well as their simplistic design. Cast irons tend to offer less feel, but can be shaped into more forgiving designs. While these are generalizations, this has been the trend with a few designs crossing over from one category to the other. Depending on how much you know about the actual fabrication of iron heads, you may know that it is just as much art as it is science, and when you get to mass production, often the cheapest and easiest way to build an iron is chosen. Cobra realized they couldn’t quite get the precision and feel they were looking for from forged or casting. They adapted a new process called Metal Injection Molding (MIM) which is a hybrid process of constructing an iron head. It is more precise and offers amazing feel.
Most golfers desire to see the word “forged” on their clubs because it usually signifies better feel.  While for the most part this is true, the process of crushing metal into a form with a press isn’t always a precise as one might want.  It can from time to time leave voids or have an inconsistency of hardness.  Many manufactures have gotten really good at the process, but it can only do what it can do.  In order to create an iron even softer feeling, Cobra is introducing MIM technology into their King irons.  The process is all about metallurgy.  The powdered version of metal can be manipulated more and formed more precisely.  This is really the heart and core of these irons; feel and precision. You can also read my review of the Cobra King Forged Tec Irons here.
The Cobra King Tour Irons with MIM technology are the softest feeling irons I have ever hit.  There is no way around the amazingly soft feel these irons have at impact.  Think forgiving cavity back iron feeling like the purest blade you’ve ever hit.  That is really what every golfer dreams of.  I hear it all the time, I wish I could play blades, but my game isn’t good enough.  Now your game doesn’t need to be good enough to get that feeling, you just need Cobra King Tour irons with MIM technology.
The Cobra King Tour Irons with MIM technology are more than just feel, they are precise tools for attacking pins.  The King series irons have always been a player iron with a blend of distance and forgiveness.  That holds as true as ever with these irons.  You can get the best of all worlds with these, feel, precision, forgiveness and distance.  These are one of those great all around iron combos that appeal to a wide handicap of golfers. 
The design of the Cobra King Tour Irons is more than just MIM for feel and precision, they also offer balance and forgiveness.  Cobra has been using tungsten for a while now to manipulate the CG for better balance and getting the “sweet spot” behind the ball.  The perimeter weighting and design also adds to the forgiveness of these irons so that even miss hits are penalized with much loss of distance or direction. In addition to the iron head features, Cobra picked my favorite new irons shafts, the KBS $-Tapers which to me offer the best of everything too in an irons shaft, great launch, easy to load, excellent smooth feel and ideal spin numbers.  
The Cobra King Tour Irons come with Arccos Connect in the grips are ready for play.  This still remains the best stat tracking system available and has proven to help golfers get better.  If you didn’t look at the grip cap, you wouldn’t even know they were there.  Also if you don’t want to use Arccos, then don’t, these clubs will still hit the same whether you track your stats or not.  I highly recommend using the Arccos and getting the additional sensors needed for the whole bag.  You can order them when you sign-up for a new account with these irons if you don’t have Arccos already.   (If you get Cobra woods and wedges you’ll have them already in those clubs too.)
