- Beyond expectations, not sure it can get better
Review by Christopher - 6/19/2019
I first ventured into the one length world with the F8's about a year ago. Unfortunately, and in some ways a blessing at the same time, they were stolen recently (my entire bag and all my clubs) and I went ahead and went to the F9's since they had been released since I bought my last set. Wow.
I loved the one length concept and really liked my F8's, but the F9's blow them away. It's not even close, the improvement is absolutely phenomenal, and that's on an already great product. These particular clubs fly further, and are exceptionally forgiving so they fly straighter as well, than any other I've ever hit in my life. This has made the game infinitely more enjoyable; I can finally feel confident standing over a 210 yard shot with just a 6 iron in my hand, and it's the clubs doing the work. It's amazing.
For reference I'm a 13-14 handicapper, nothing special, and while I do probably hit a bit further than average these are still going to give you increased distance where you're confident from lengths you've never been confident from before.
To boot I also bought the F8+ driver on sale and I'm hitting drives better than I ever have too. Since switching to one lengths via Cobra I've been a massive advocate to anyone who will listen, not just for the concept of one length but for what Cobra is doing as well. I'm thoroughly impressed with the F9's and everything I've touched from Cobra. So much so I went ahead and switched my wife's clubs too. They're seriously that good.
- I love One Length
Review by Gee - 5/25/2019
After I used one length, i start to enjoy golf and i never need to feel embarrassed playing with the strangers. It helps me to be able to control my swing much better!
- Amazing Irons
Review by Levi - 5/17/2019
These irons are simply amazing. The feel, consistency, forgiveness, and overall performance are great. Only took a couple of days to get use to the one length, and now I would never go back to standard length irons.

Review by Annie B - 5/15/2019
Amazing is the best word to describe them. I love the one length; it makes setup easy and consistent. The team at Cobra were helpful, efficient and quick. The PGA Superstore staff in Palm Springs measured me and were also so helpful. I am now back in DUBAI where I live and am amazed at how good these clubs are. I love them!
- Smart choice
Review by Jeff g - 5/15/2019
I was very inconsistent with irons till now. Game changer for me. They put the joy back in the game for me
- Just do it
Review by Joey - 4/29/2019
I got fitted for my set a few weeks ago and they were delivered last week. I have hit the clubs at the range 4 times so far and I have to say they are the strongest clubs I have hit so far in my 22 years of play. I really love how I can just stand up and hit 4-gw with the same set up and swing. I think my favorite thing, so far, is how fast they get up in the air and how easy they are to control.
It hasn't come without a little bit of getting used to. My first trip to the range was brutal, but once I got passed the mental side of hitting a 4 iron the has the same length shaft as a GW, and visa versa, I started dialing things in enough that now that I am ready to take them on the course. I can say this...So far with the 8i down through the GW, my accuracy has been deadly. It seems like I cannot miss. Again, getting the ball up in the air is no problem at all. I have also completely eliminated my normal miss right...Not sure if that is due to the slight off set some of the clubs have, or the varying shaft weights, but it is gone.
Aside from that, off center hits are still very forgiving and seem to fly maybe 3-5 yards less, depending on how far off center the hit is and seem to fly straight.
If you are thinking about getting a set of these bad boys, do it. I am a 5 handicapper and wanted a set that allowed me to go out and add more consistency in my general swing and think more about course management rather than club management. It seems that this set will allow me to do that.
Give them a spin!
- Very Happy
Review by Tim - 4/26/2019
I'm a 15 handicap and always wanted to try one length irons. I don't get to golf as much as I'd like (once every couple weeks) so I wanted something that could add consistency to my my game. The single swing plane with these irons has done that. I couldn't be happier.
- Golf made fun ...
Review by Gabe - 4/24/2019
I needed a change and I found the One Length Cobra clubs that one of my friends had F7 and I tried them for a couple of rounds. I was surprised to see how easy to hit and I didn't quite liked the length (8 iron) so I went and tried the F9 at ProGolf Discount store and got fitted for a set. 1/2 longer and 2 degrees flat since I'm a tall player and now I had the pleasure to play them a few rounds. Amazing shots, easy to control distance and direction on my approach shots. Higher and longer shots than my old Mizuno JPX EZ forged set, more consistent and without losing the soft feel. I recommend this set the any 8 - 20 HCP it will improve your game....
- Save my back?
Review by Bob - 4/19/2019
I have only used the F9 ones for 5 rounds, it’s Michigan and the spring can fickle. What I’ve noticed is that my back pain has been minimal. I believe by using the same stance for each iron has put less stress on my back, time will tell. The clubs feel great and I have started using the Cobra connect, we will see how my game progresses.
- One-length forever!
Review by Supfitz - 4/17/2019
As much as I enjoyed the F8 one length irons, I can't overstate the huge improvement with the new King F9 model. Much easier to get the longer irons in the air and unreal spin on the wedges! I now own 11 one-length clubs and love every single one of them.
Highly recommend if you are looking for consistency in your game.
Looking forward to the eventual release of the One-length Driver!
- Very nice
Review by Sully - 4/15/2019
Very impressed dead on accurate
Review by Eye4golf - 4/8/2019
Have played 3 rounds with my f9 one length irons and absolutely crush the ball. I am a 67 year old with a 10 hdcp and love the superlong distance I get from these irons. I opted for the kbs steel shafts which are the perfect shaft for my swing. I am averaging about 1 1/2 less club than my self made single length set I made last year. My buddies are shocked I can hit my 5 iron 220-225 yards. The ball jumps off the milled face. One length/single length is the easiest way to improve your game and lower your scores. Building clubs for over 30 years I rarely buy a club, but after demoing these I was sold. Golfers,the new technology in one length clubs are for “Real”.Irons are your scoring clubs and these superb beauties make scoring easy. Mine is 5-GW set and since I just won some tournament money yesterday I order a SW today. Great job Cobra golf
- I'm a convert
Review by Barkley26 - 4/5/2019
As a fairly steady 10 handicap, I never fathomed switching from a traditional set to Cobra One Length........until I had an opportunity to give them a shot for fun at a local golf store. I was sold. I got fitted for a set shortly thereafter. And I will never go back to a traditional variable length set. Are they for everyone? Probably not...but I am willing to bet they are "right" for more people than anyone realizes. If you've even thought about it for a second, I would encourage you to go swing them. You will likely be very surprised. Most people who buy them talk about how the One Length clubs help with long irons, but I actually bought them to help my short game. The point is, they help you. Go check em' out!! It's free to do that...so do it. Then come here and post your review after you buy a set and love your golf game.
- Absolutely amazed with the Cobra F9 SPEEDBACK ONE length Irons
Review by John - 4/2/2019
I received my KING F9 SPEEDBACK ONE Length Irons (5-GW) yesterday and took them to the range. Absolutely amazed! I was worried about how chunky the irons look, but after hitting them, it's not even a factor. I can't wait to take these out on the Golf Course. If you're on the fence about trying these irons, take it from me, you will not be disappointed.
- One length clubs for mid handicapper
Review by Big Lynn - 4/2/2019
Just played with F9 one length irons this weekend and I really enjoyed playing with these irons. I converted to one length irons last year. The biggest improvement I noticed in the F9s vs F8s was in the 5 and 6 irons. I was more consistent with the F9s. As a longtime golfer whose handicap has increased with age (60), these clubs have turned the rise in handicap. I would recommend these clubs if you want a consistent setup and swing. I gave my F8s to son (low handicap) and he loves them. He tried to talk me out of the F9s.
- The best golf purchase I've ever made.
Review by Spinkso - 3/27/2019
I'm a bit of a club junkie. I've gone through a lot of different clubs. From Drivers to fairways, wedges, putters and iron sets.
The F9 one length iron set is simply the best purchase I've ever made. Prior to this I was playing with the F7 one lengths, the strides they've made in two years is massive.
I was fitted at a PGA Superstore in Frisco Texas in the van fitting with Scott Swords, I recommend anyone in the DFW area to book a time with him and have him maximize your set with him.
We ran through some shafts, extended the length and went to a stiffer shaft and I immediately saw differences in my game. Those I play with regularly saw it as well.
Mis hits still happen, but some how they're not as bad. I'm getting more GIR, added distance and rarely shanking or fatting my shots.
F9 one lengths are legit.
Better than advertised.
Review by 3d12ring - 3/25/2019
I agree with all the reviews on here. If you shoot in the 80’s or above I highly recommend the one length F9’s. Some how my thin shoots even roll out to the yardage that I was trying. Fat shoots are close as well. These clubs just go straight. Really helps build confidence and makes the game so much fun!
- one lenght
Review by Michael - 3/25/2019
I have been using the clubs for a couple of weeks now, and did want to post a review until I was sure. First I must give a little history I am a golf professional who works in Asia. I am 78 years old. I play three times a week. Still shooting my age . I have found these clubs to be easy to hit and control. I have actually picked up distance with the one length. I found that I can work the ball with more ease then with my other clubs (PXG 0311) I also found that when going to go after the shot it was easier to stay down and through the ball. There were very few miss hits on the harder swing and almost never fat. The set in my hands seems to be well ordered or distant gaped if you prefer. I would recommend these clubs to all seniors and young players who have an option to learn them. It is so relaxing to get up to the ball and know that your swing is the same as the last one. Just learn to hit one club and you will cut your score.
- Absolutely Amazing
Review by Nick - 3/22/2019
I have been playing for a few years and used my father inlaws old clubs. I'm 24 and played baseball, but have never had lessons. With the old steel shafts I was flexing it too much and very inconsistent. Since I have not had lessons, I knew I wanted the one lengths. I went in, and got fitted. With my old 7 iron I was hitting 175-180 yards. With my new F9 one lengths (+1/2", stiff, modulus 120) I was hitting it much straighter and more consistent. My yardage went up to 195 as well. A+. I cannot recommend these enough.
- So far so good.
Review by Joe - 3/18/2019
Weather has not permitted anything other than two trips to the range, where my contact felt solid and dispersion was tight. As far as the "one length", it simply felt totally natural. Felt like all clubs should be made that way!!!
- Cobra King F9 One Length Irons are the best irons I have ever owed!
Review by Jeremy - 3/10/2019
First of all, I have to say that I never do club reviews. That being said, after hitting and playing with these new Cobra King F9 One Length irons I have to say that I am totally impressed and blown away. I have tried another company’s “single length” irons in the past and I didn’t really like them, so I was a bit nervous when I decided to pull the trigger on buying these clubs. I am so glad I did though.
I have a handicap index of 4.1 and have been playing golf for about 23 years now. Like many of you, I have tried just about everything out there trying to find that one “magic” thing that would help me hit the ball more consistent. Now, I am not saying these clubs are magical, but what I am saying is that since switching to these clubs they have greatly helped me improve my accuracy and my confidence over the ball.
One of the first things that I noticed is the lower lofted clubs (4,5,6,7) are a bit chunkier then what I was expecting, but after hitting them I know why. These things fly far and high. The height is the one thing that shocked me the most. I have read reviews and tried other brands and I did notice how low the 4 and 5 irons flew in those sets and I was worried that it would be the same in this one, but to my pleasant surprise that is not the case at all. When I strike the ball well the 5 irons take off high, goes straight, and far. The more mass and heavier weights in the lower lofted clubs makes it so much easier to launch the ball high with these clubs compared to other brands I have tried.
The higher lofted clubs (8, 9, PW, GW, SW) look more like players clubs, with less mass seen at address. It gives you the confidence that you can hit these clubs closer to the hole with ease. The ball comes off nice and high and stops on a dime on the green. It allows me to take on more flags and know that when it lands it will stop shortly after.
Now I won’t tell you that the change from variable lengths and single lengths was quick and easy. There is some adjustment period that is needed. It is mainly in that 3-inch gap between your ears though. At first because the 4 and 5 irons looked so short, I felt like I had to swing super hard to get the numbers that I needed, but that was the wrong approach. If you can just convince yourself to swing those clubs with your normal swing, you will get amazing results. The reverse was true with the higher lofted clubs. I felt like because they were longer, I was going to fly every green I looked at, but because Cobra did an amazing job adjusting the head weights in these clubs the ball goes the yardages I want and lands soft on the green. Once you can convince yourself to swing normal you will have clubs that allow you to set up the same way and swing the same way. The golf game becomes more enjoyable and repeatable with these clubs.
If you are on the fence about the clubs, don’t be. After you are able to get over the mental block that comes with changing your thought process on clubs and their lengths, you will start hitting the ball better, with more frequency. Good luck and hit them well!
- F9's One Length Really Performs
Review by David - 3/5/2019
I bought F7's when they came out and I enjoyed them. I did find they had technical issues that were problematic. When I was ready for new clubs this year I called and talked to Cobra about my problems with F7's and was thrilled to have them recognize and address all the difficulties I encountered playing them for 2 years. I ordered the F9"s and from the very first ball I struck with them it was clear they had addressed all of my issues. These irons are fantastic. I absolutely love them and look forward to playing more golf this year with them. They are consistent in stability through the set, the flex is consistent, the feel is great. I don't know what more to say. Try them. I bet you will love them too.
- More fun and consistency
Review by Ruud - 3/4/2019
I was always struggling with my long irons to get these consistent. This is now past history as these single length irons make life so much easier. Just bought them, played only once and already this is making a huge difference.
- Blown away
Review by Mr. E - 2/21/2019
These irons blew away my expectations. I had been playing a premium brand set recently fitted to my swing, but decided I needed to try out the one length philosophy. Not only do I love the single length aspect of the set, but the look at address is very charming, and a pure strike has a sublime feel. Thanks Cobra!
- Golf has been simplified
Review by Shane - 2/19/2019
These are game changers for us regular folk that don't have the time to master all the different ball positions and swings for variable length clubs. Finally i have confidence in getting a good strike with every club because they're all the same!
Beautiful clubs with a wonderful feel. Before I got them I had read that some people are concerned with being able to get the 5i airborne. All i can say is don't be! I have a medium swing speed and the ball just explodes off the face and goes the same height as my other 5i.
My days of spending hours at the range trying to groove my swing are over. All my range money can now go towards playing actual golf!
- Love these clubs
Review by GrumpyGolfer - 2/19/2019
I am never going to be a scratch golfer. Just someone who loves the game. What I love about these clubs is that I feel like I have a chance to make par on every hole. I’m no longer struggling to hit a 6-4 iron and felt like my play with the 8-G didn’t suffer at all. I’ll never hit anything but one length clubs again.
- Great Iron
Review by JR - 2/15/2019
Just for my own knowledge I tried the One Length 4 iron to gain more consistency in my longer irons. Why did I not know about this sooner? I left my longer 4 in the bag and grab the One Length 4 when I’m in the situation for this iron. I’m concidering the entire set of One Length Irons now. Sorry T M. I found a better way to get there.
- Beyond Expectations
Review by Terry - 1/29/2019
Loved them the first time I picked them up. Much more confidence with the longer irons, and even the short irons took little time to adjust to. I am sold on the concept, and the quality of these clubs is great. Love the feel of a well struck ball.
- Quickly falling in love with the F9 one lengths!
Review by Lgnir - 1/27/2019
Back in the early 90's I almost bought a set of Tommy Armour EQL's as I liked the idea behind one length irons. Fast forward 29 years and my main purpose was to go to one plane so it's easier on my back.
I'm lucky enough to have a hitting bay in my garage and a SkyTrak, so I am able to make some good comparisons of the F9's to my previous Callaway Big Bertha OS irons.
My first impression was the great feedback I received from these irons. I can easily feel if I am low, high, right or left of the center of the clubface. Although it took about 4-6 hours to get used to the one lengths, once I did, I was amazed at the distances I was getting, and how tight my dispersion circles were compared to my previous irons.
The best thing? My club gaps are WAY more consistent now! From gap wedge through 5 iron I have about a 10-12 yard gap between each club!
I am having a little difficulty learning to hit the one length 4-hybrid, but I just need to practice with it some more.
If you are thinking about trying one length, give the F9's a try. I think you will like them. From the KBS shafts, to the chrome on the clubheads, I think Cobra has made a really high quality iron. I am extreamly pleased with my purchase!
