- Forged Tec Black irons: you gotta try
Review by Geemanhonk - 10/29/2019
I am a bit of Cobra fanatic, I have had a Cobra Amp cell Pro driver in the bag for 6 years now and love it. I play with a couple of Biocell hybrids that just launch perfectly for me and I played with my Amp Cell Pro irons for 6 years and absolutely loved them. I played off a handicap 8 with them and adored the soft feeling face, the thin top line and the small head. Having had them for so long I went along to a Cobra fitting just to check that there was nothing else out there that could compete, and also to check that I was still getting the most out of my 6 year old irons.
Well, that was a mistake, I tried the Forged tec and they were magnificent. They were slightly chunkier than my old Combo/blade set of Amp cell pro's, but they just felt silky soft. The lofts were slightly stronger, but after an hour of being put in the correct shaft, the dispersion, distance and confidence that I got from them was far better than my current irons. I was in trouble, I had no real intention of getting rid of my old irons, but these things just changed that.
So, having purchased them back in June 2019, I have now used them for now 4 months, and my game has never been as good. My handicap is now down to 6.4, my ball striking is better, my distance control and dispersion has improved and I cannot wait for the start of next season (being from Scotland, the season is now over and begins again in April 2020).
- Great Feel, Great Forgiveness, Crazy Long
Review by Todd - 8/27/2019
I have had these for 10 months now and the black finish is still nearly perfect. Buttery feel and long because of the stronger lofts, so adjust accordingly. I was sold on the forgiveness without having the large head and sole of an improvement iron. Best in this category.
- Super irons
Review by Stewy090 - 8/24/2019
I have now played 5 rounds with these irons after replacing my Callaway apex pro 16’s and I am absolutely blown away with their performance. The feel of the club is amazing and super soft and the odd miss hit will still fly thanks to the tungsten inserts. The distance they produce is great and they stop the ball really well with a lethal accuracy. All in all I took a punt based on having the Cobra King Driving utility iron and I am not dissapointed these are amazing clubs and in black look stunning.
- Great Set - Awesome Look
Review by Hoss - 7/28/2019
I recently switched from the Forged Tour to this set. I absolutely loved the forged tour, just wanted a black set. I got the KBS C Taper - Matte Black shafts and these are a thing of beauty. They are a much harder feel than the forged tour, a bit harder to work but MUCH more forgiving. They are a club longer as well. These irons go a mile. The only thing I don't like is the "G" Gap wedge (All personal preference as the club performs perfectly). To my eye it's a bit too chunky and the top line seems to be much thicker. I cant get comfortable over it. Again, all just personal preference for those who might feel the same. I just recommend the 50* Black King Wedge. I love these clubs and would recommend anyone to give these a try.

A month ago, I went to a demo day (Taylormade and Cobra) at my golf club to purchase new irons. After a few minutes hitting ball and a quick fitting by the rep, I decided to order a set of Black Forged Tec that I received 10 days later. Now I hit longer and higher and my ball always stop a few inches from my ballmark on the green….A very satisfied client...Thanks Cobra
- Awesome irons
Review by Richiek - 7/16/2019
I have been a loyal Taylormade customer. I went for a custom club fitting going in with the idea of buying the p790 . Tried them all Titleist, Callaway apex, Taylormade p790,ping I5 ,Mizuno and Srixon .. I didn’t hit any of them better than my current irons than he brought out the cobra forged tec blacks and I hit them way better than any other club and felt great. I tried all the others again than the cobras again and same results so I bought them. It took a couple of rounds to get used to them but I love them . I get compliments on the look of them and everyone who tries my clubs out comments on how soft they feel and how long they hit them.

The most underrated black iron on the market. Very Durable over other black irons like the TaylorMade p.790 and Titleist AP3. The feel of the iron are nice, grips are nice, and the Cobra connect. Cobra is the most underrated golf company in the game!

Review by Davis Junior - 6/26/2019
Unbelievable irons, the feel and look are fantastic and the black paint is second to none. I saw a set of black P790s that were fading after 10 rounds! My forged tecs have seen 40 so far and still look unreal.
- First Irons in 14 years
Review by Rob - 6/1/2019
These are unbelievably forgiving and long. Could not be happier as a weekend warrior who’s ball striking is a bit all over the face. They are wonderfully soft as well. The 5-g is equivalent to my old xtour 4-p at the same lofts which is truly remarkable.
Review by lasilis - 4/16/2019
Longer and straighter than previous irons. Great feel and workability.
- Totally gobsmacked!!
Review by Priceyledge - 1/30/2019
Was looking at the latest Titleist and Taylormade irons at my local golf shop. The assistant insisted I the Cobra Forged TEC irons. WOW. Totally gobsmacked by the perofrmance! Nice flight, tiny draw and hit the green on every shot (Driving range!) Will be swapping from a Taylormade loyalist...
- Awesome clubs
Review by CobraLoverSince2005 - 1/26/2019
I have the whole enchilada. From 3-iron to GW with DG X-Seven shafts.
What a performance, what a look and feel! I just love my new clubs and love playing with them.
Makes a club difference in length with the same accuratesse.
- Solid Clubs
Review by Dolly - 12/29/2018
very forgiving and long with an amazing feel and look. 10/10 would reccomend
- Excellent Clubs, Durable Finish
Review by MadHat - 11/9/2018
I bought my set, 5-GW, shortly after they became available in early 2018. I played with them all spring, summer, and early fall--about eighty rounds in total (I'm a teacher and had all summer off, playing almost every day). I have to say that they are simply fantastic. I bought them because their feel, sound, and performance are top-notch--and when coupled with their looks, I was sold. The only question I had was the durability of the finish. I'm happy to say now that, after all of those rounds, the finish on mine is just as beautiful as when they were unboxed. Very durable. I don't take enormous divots on my strikes, but I would think that after that many rounds the sole would show some slight wear or lose color. But they simply haven't; they have kept their sleek look through the many rounds I've played.
- Simply perfect
Review by Steve in Canada - 11/9/2018
The thing I love about Cobra is the amount of R&D and engineering that goes into their products!!! The performance of these clubs coupled with the look and superior black finish in a forged offering is tops! The Cobra connect is simply z huge bonus! I tried all of the the other big name players distance irons and these were truly the longest, most forgiving of them all! Everything from the stunning look to the incredible feel of these clubs is Perfect! Can't wait to have a full season with these!!! Excellent job Cobra, Don't change a thing!!!
- Great performance - dissapointing finish
Review by Shaun - 11/4/2018
I have had these for a couple of months now and just finished my third with them. I love the performance of these clubs. They are extremely forgiving for the size of the head and long. The flight is powerful and the stopping power is amazing considering the strong lofts. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them on performance but the finish has not been great in my experience so far and a head has come unglued. If those things don’t bother you don’t worry about reading on.
I have been to the range a lot since buying them but due to the finish being damages on delivery for two clubs and the. Two becoming damaged after a couple of range sessions and one round I was without a full set for a week or two. Customer service was great and the clubs were fixed but then the PW head came unglued and after my round today there is an impact mark on the face of the 5 iron. I don’t expect them to stay as new but after 3 round and going to the range 1 or 2 times a week for just under 2 months I would expect them to last better. I am sure they would repair it if I send the club back again but to say this is the toughest finish they have ever produced is not the experience I have had.
- love the new irons
Review by Guy - 10/9/2018
Got a set of these (5 to GW) about two weeks ago. Have played several rounds thus far and am more than pleased with the Forged TEC irons black edition. Took a round or two to feel comfortable with them (as i had use game improvement irons for the last 10 years). i have found that they launch very high and long. I just played my eight round with them and have been scoring my best rounds of the year. Phenomenal product.
Review by J Gallant - 9/13/2018
These are simply amazing! Such great feel off the club face. After playing a forged blade for 15+ years I was looking for something a little more forgiving but still with a good look and play-ability. I took my time and compared a range of clubs, less expensive and more expensive - It came down to the Taylormade 790 but, The Forged Black with the black AMT shafts looked so menacing and felt so good I had to go with them. I've had them on the course and on the range and there is no issue with the finish at all. The cobra connect arccos is simply amazing so far. I haven't gotten in the 5 rounds to access the Smart Caddie, but I can already see where my strengths and weakness are consistently.
One thing I had to get use to was the stronger lofts - most club on the market now are much stronger lofted than 10 - 15 years ago. The 5 iron is the same loft as my previous nike blade 3 iron. For me this eliminates an additional iron above it. Even from an average lie in the rough, 200 yrd carry out of the 5 iron is no big deal. I've also gone to the cobra 5-6 wood which fills the 215-230 gap and a 3-4 wood which covers 220-260.
As for the wedges, having the gap wedge @ 50 degrees eliminated my need for a 52 degree and a 56, so I've gone to a cobra black 54 and 60 for around the greens and in the sand.
I can't say enough about the feel. I've played some of what I thought were the best wedges but for me, these just feel and play better.
Go like stink.
Can stick the ball from any distance.
Very strong lofted - adjustments needed.
Not AS workable as a blade.
Lamkin grips only option if you want the arccos included.
- $$$$$-Love 'em!!
Review by Skhacker - 9/2/2018
Tried the 8 iron on a whim in the store sim and was pleasantly surprised, so went on to hit the whole set and was sold. Smooth, solid, clean lines and lots of confidence at address. Love the blacked out look as well.
- Fantastic Iron
Review by Big Swinga - 8/21/2018
Fantastic irons, feel is great and distance is superb. Best black finish iron on the market by a long shot!
- Club Fitting Gone Astray
Review by MDB02 - 7/28/2018
I had a club fitting for Titleist AP2 and AP3 and my professional asked me to try the Cobra's. Well, was I surprised. Feels like butter, goes like jam. Very long and forgiving.
- New level of golf
Review by TJD - 7/23/2018
Awesome feel, great forgiveness, incredible distance and they look super slick in black. The acros caddie is so useful and well worth the price of these clubs alone.
These clubs can be used by any player from intermediate to a professional.
Compared to the Titleist AP3, they blow them away.
- Great clubs
Review by Brent - 6/20/2018
Been playing a month with a custom fit set of the Forged TEC. Added 1 club to my distance. I am a year older so it is obviously not me improving, but having them fit properly has me looking forward to playing everytime! As a former PGA member and Ferris State PGM alum, I can say this is a great product!
- More Distance
Review by Richard - 5/13/2018
I am a 19 handicap and where my game was hurting was missed short percentage. I was above 50% almost every round. The local area courses recently had a demo day, so I wanted to try the Callaway Rogue Irons and Cobra Forged Tec. They both hit equally as well with myself picking up about 10-15 more yards with the irons. I did the demo day for 2 days in a row to make sure I was just not hitting well the first day. But back on the 2nd day in a different location I had same results. I choose the Cobra's over the Callaway's for a couple reasons since they both hit almost identical. I really liked the black look of the Cobra's, and not being a coating versus imbedded with the color that is a big plus. The other reason was, I was already a Arccos user so having the Arccos in the Cobra Connect grips was a big seller for me.
As far as on course play, I have played my last 2 rounds exceptionally well reaching greens and with the Cobra driver, fairway and hybrid gaining the distance I was lacking. I am very pleased Cobra fan now.

This is the first set I have ever bought for myself. After having them two months I am beyond happy with what these clubs do for my game. The launch is amazing the distance control is perfect. Thank you cobra for an amazing product you will now have a customer for life......
- Great Irons
Review by Augusta Golf Club - 5/12/2018
Very good irons. I ordered some for people at our club and they loved them. They are extremely light and get your club head speed up higher.

Review by EddieBigEddie - 5/9/2018
I just played my set for the first time today...and all I can say is WOW. These clubs are beautiful, soft and just look SEXY in all black. I ordered with the Black KBS $ Taper and they look great together. Gave me a great penetrating ball flight and was point and shoot. Can’t wait to get more time with them. Welcome to the Dark Side!
Review by Brandon - 5/8/2018
Best irons on the market!! Look amazing and perform like they look!!
- Great Choice!
Review by BillD - 5/7/2018
The feel is amazing and they give a great players iron look with forgiveness. I got the Nippon shafts after a fitting which increased my club speed.
Love these clubs!

Stunning irons and amazing feel! Tried pretty much every iron on the market and these stood out by a mile for feel, turf interaction and performance. They look fantastic in the black finish. Thank you Cobra!
- Great club
Review by birdie shooter - 5/3/2018
Just picked up my set yesterday and they are sexy looking and play even better than they look. A full club longer than my jpx 900 forged.
- Simply AMAZING
Review by Andrew - 5/3/2018
I am simply in love with these amazing irons!
my set is a 4-gw with true temper AMT S300. they are so easy to hit that sometimes it feels unbelievable. the touch is super soft and the overall feeling is that you can hit it very gently, and the ball will fly with a penetrating flight at the desired distance.
and the looks are amazing. this black diamonized finish seems to be very durable and no sign of wear and tear on the face after 1 month of usage.
good job Cobra!
Review by RG10 - 4/20/2018
These clubs were perfect!!! They look great and perform even better. Couldn’t ask for a better product.
