The Bottom Line

With every iron test, there are products that flirt with different labels. COBRA KING Tour falls into this description. Although it is in our player's iron category, it can arguably serve as a player's distance iron. Distance is its strongest attribute. So, if distance is your main priority as a better ball striker or lower handicap golfer, this might be worth your consideration. However, it finishes in 13th place. Compared to other player's irons, it does not perform as accurately or consistently. So pick your poison.

Pros

Throughout testing, COBRA King Tour proves to be one of the longest irons in the player's iron category. Player's irons are generally not distance irons. However, COBRA KING Tour flirts as a player's distance iron design. If you want a product that has high subjective appeal, COBRA KING Tour ranks well for sound, feel, and looks.

Cons

Distance is certainly one of COBRA KING Tour's strengths. However, its performance for accuracy and forgiveness is subpar. Both of these subpar performances ultimately lead to its poor overall ranking.

Cobra KING Tour is new to the 2023 iron family. This comprehensive review will discuss multiple talking points surrounding the KING Tour, including insights from our best player’s irons 2023. The KING Tour is designated as a player’s iron and showcases the design and profile of a player’s iron, yet blends in more technology than traditional player’s irons. Let’s take a look. 

About the COBRA KING Tour Iron

Cobra King Tour Irons are high-performance golf clubs designed for players seeking a perfect blend of distance, accuracy, and playability. These irons result from Cobra’s continuous efforts to create innovative and game-improving products for golfers of all skill levels.

Cobra King Tour Irons bridge the gap between Cobra King Forged Tec Irons and the KING CB irons. The new King Tour Irons build on the success of the Forged Tec series, taking the performance to new heights with improved technology and design. Cobra KING Tour can arguably flirt as a player’s distance iron depending on who you ask.

The primary objective of Cobra King Tour Irons is to provide golfers with a versatile and forgiving set of irons that deliver exceptional performance across various aspects of the game, including distance, accuracy, and playability.

COBRA KING Tour Iron Technology and Features

Cobra King Tour Irons are made from a combination of high-quality materials that contribute to their exceptional performance. The irons feature a tour cavity back design with CNC-milled undercuts to enhance stability and forgiveness. A 5x forging process is used to manufacture these irons, giving them a solid and premium feel.

One of the most interesting aspects of the Cobra King Tour Irons’ construction is the use of Metal Injection Molding (MIM) technology. MIM allows for more precise clubhead shaping, resulting in better performance and feel. This technology, combined with the 5x forging process, gives the King Tour Irons a unique combination of performance and playability.
