For the most part, the COBRA Copper Series of irons isn’t anything you haven’t seen. One year into a two-year cycle, it’s common for brands to add a finish option to keep product smelling fresh in the marketplace and, with the exception of the new KING RF Forged MB, that’s what COBRA is doing.

The industry’s refresh color of choice is typically black, though there are exceptions. Vokey has taken a shine to Slate Blue (the best finish) and COBRA, for its part in the conversation, has elected to refresh two of its models with a copper finish.

To be absolutely clear, COBRA is using a PVD-based copper-colored finish, not actual copper. If you want the real thing, you’re going to have to spend significantly more. That’s just how it is. I don’t set the prices.

KING RF Forged MB Copper

The new model within the trio of COBRA Copper Series irons is the KING RF Forged MB Copper. As you could probably surmise, the “RF” stamped in the toe is short for “Rickie Fowler.” It speaks to Rickie’s role in shaping the design and choosing the finish. It could also be short for “Really F*cked” which is an apt description of a typical outcome resulting from mis-hitting a blade.

Either way …

The KING RF Forged MB are forged from 1025 steel. It’s reasonable to say COBRA hasn’t gotten enough credit for the outstanding feel of its forging over the years. I expect the RF Forged MB will continue the tradition of underappreciated excellence.

Other key features include a tungsten toe weight which helps optimally position the center of gravity for precise control and outstanding feel (did I mention the feel of COBRA forgings?). Grooves are 100-percent CNC milled.

KING RF Forged MB Specs and Pricing

The COBRA KING RF Forged is available in 4-PW in right-hand only.

The stock shaft is the KBS C-Taper 120. The stock grip is the Arccos-embedded Lamkin Crossline Connect.

Retail price is $1,399.

For the KING Tour Copper and KING Forged Tec Copper, the story is simpler still. Save the copper finish, the irons are the same as what’s currently on shelves.

But, hey, a brief recap couldn’t hurt, right?

COBRA KING Tour Copper

The KING TOUR is COBRA’s MIM’d offering.  If you’re unfamiliar with MIM, here’s how we’ve described it.

The first thing you need to know is that it stands for “Metal Injection Molding.” The process involves mixing metal powder with a polymer binding agent, heating into a paste and pumping the result into an injection-molding machine to create the desired shape.

Once the dust settles, the heads go in a furnace to remove the polymer binder. The heads are then heated to 1,340 degrees Celsius, where everything is welded together before the secondary milling process sharpens things up.

According to COBRA, the MIM process creates a smoother grain flow which reduces voids in the material and ultimately creates a feel that’s softer than forging.

The final step in the process is robotic polishing. As we’ve covered before, the equipment industry likes to use polishing as a euphemism for grinding. By letting properly programmed robots do the delicate work, COBRA can reduce variances in weight and thickness.

Like the RF Forged, the KING TOUR offers a tungsten toe weight. A vibration-damping TPU insert helps further improve feel.

The KING TOUR Copper Iron is available in 4-PW for both right- and left-handed golfers. A 3-iron and gap wedge are available through COBRA custom.

The stock shaft is the KBS $-Taper. The stock grip is the Arccos-embedded Lamkin Crossline Connect.

Retail price is $1,399.

COBRA KING Forged Tec

The KING Forged Tec is COBRA’s player’s distance offering. It features full hollow-body design and a forged PWRSHELL face for consistent launch and speed across the entire hitting area.

The copper offering is available in 4-PW for both right- and left-handed golfers. A 3-iron and gap wedge are available through COBRA custom.

The stock shaft is the KBS $-Taper Lite. The PX Catalyst is the stock graphite option.

The stock grip is the Arccos-embedded Lamkin Crossline Connect.

Retail price is $1,199.

COBRA Copper Series Irons – Availability

COBRA RF Forged, MB, KING Tour and KING Fored TEC Copper irons will be available beginning March 12.

A 90-day trial of Arccos Caddie is included.

      I’m curious as to why “The stock grip is the Arccos-embedded Lamkin Crossline Connect.”. Is the Arccos service “free” to purchasers of this equipment or it it a “introductory period” then the standard charge for the service?

      Arccos-embedded grips have been offered standard on Cobra clubs for a few years now and are also offered on PING clubs as well. My understanding is that the service is included in the price for the first year (just as if you bought sensors or grips directly from Arccos) and then you’d have to pay $99/yr. IF you wanted to continue collecting data.

      Is Rickie going to be playing these instead of the Rev33? Seems his game fell off when he put those in the bag, so much so he was playing the Amp Pro for a while while claiming that he was testing shafts. Why would a pro test shafts in 8 year old iron heads in tournament play?

      “To be absolutely clear, COBRA is using a PVD-based copper-colored finish, not actual copper. If you want the real thing, you’re going to have to spend significantly more. That’s just how it is. I don’t set the prices.”

      So unlike some of the Mizuno models that use copper to enhance feel, this is nothing but bling? If I were the sort who like placing an occasional wager on a round of golf, I’d look hard to play anyone bagging these things.

      So do you do the same with black or gunmetal too? What about brushed stainless vs chrome… Just because someone likes the copper color over the others doesn’t mean anything. Cobra always pushing to do something new, and offering an iron in a new color is a great idea. Who cares if they don’t use actual copper. They aren’t up charging any really. No more than others do for black irons anyway. I play mizuno irons now, but think it’s cool to see new offerings.

      If you are basing your golf wagers simply from color choice of someones irons, game on! Any game you name, any amount you can count!

      Clearly these clubs are meant to mirror the Rev.33’s in appearance via color. Why is this different than any other color offered by an OEM???

      Personally, I think it’s a cool look and I’d be tempted to game them if they cut down on glare at all.

      Granted, I think these will look more dated in a few years compared to black finishes – kinda like how Nike clubs tend to look a bit more dated with the blue and volt yellow. (or whatever it was called). It certainly isn’t a “classic” look.

      I mean I will be gaming this as soon as my custom order gets here. I already play close to scratch golf with older hammy-down irons at the age of 18. But, I would gladly wager cash on my golf game even if you don’t respect the “copper irons”.

      I still can’t understand why Cobra don’t use their snake logo on their clubs. They seem obsessed with using a big KING which looks terrible. The cobra logo looks fantastic on clubs. If I were in their marketing team I would have just it on the backs with maybe king or cobra written small. Why oh why they don’t make the most of one of the best logos in golf does my head in.

      Man do these look great! It sucks because I just bought a set of COBRA KING FORGED TEC yesterday. Keep it going Cobra!

      Good review Tony, thanks. Would love to know, for all the OEMs, how many folks are buying all this new equipment at the current new club price. I can’t imagine people are left & right dropping $550 on drivers, $300 on FW & hybrids, $1,400 on iron sets, $199 on wedges & $350+ on putters. I understand very few people buy all those new clubs at one time but even still, would love to get an accurate count of new club sales at the new club prices.

      I actually like the copper color. I know PVD has a reputation of not wearing well in black. I suspect the copper, with wear, will still look good. Like an old Cobra Trusty Rusty wedge, most people see them with wear and say “cool”. Good marketing Cobra!

      Given that Cobra says they are using a PVD-based copper-colored finish, what are they saying about its durability? Prior PVD-based finishes (typically black) have a reputation for not wearing well in the normal course of play. Thanks…
