The Cobra Max iron set is designed to make the game of golf easy for mid-to-high handicappers, providing easy launch, forgiveness and distance
Launching in conjunction with the Cobra Max woods, the Cobra Max irons boast a progressive design to improve the performance of each type of club to help the mid-to-high handicap golfer consistently hit more greens.
Engineered with COBRA’s TECFLO system (Technology Enhanced Cavity Feel Launch Optimization), which also features on the Cobra King F6 irons, the combination of multiple technologies and advanced constructions create a progressive iron set designed to optimise the performance of every iron.
The Cobra Max eight piece progressive iron set features half hollow long irons (4i-8i) to offer distance and forgiveness where golfers need it most. Deep undercut cavity-back short irons (9i & PW) combine forgiveness with an element of feel and shot-making while the GW included in the set features a specialty muscle back shape and tour contoured sole for feel and versatility around the greens.
Golfers of this ability tend to enjoy the benefits of a combination set, replacing hybrids for long irons. The eight piece progressive combo set features: 4-6 hybrids; 7i and 8i half hollow irons; 9i & PW cavity-back irons and GW wide sole specialty wedge. MAX irons feature weaker lofts from 8i-4i and progressive offset to help the golfer achieve higher launch, optimal spin and more draw bias.

The Cobra Max iron set is available from January 15th, 2016, in an eight-piece iron set (RRP £399), 6i+4h,5h combo set in steel (£549) and all graphite (£599), and women’s combo set (£599). The men’s irons come equipped with a Matrix White Tie X4 shaft – Graphite and for Steel, a FST Steel shaft.
