Cobra launches new 2018 King Forged MB/CB set, designed like Rickie Fowler’s irons
For years, that have tungsten plugs in both the toe and center of their soles to fine tune CG (center of gravity) for additional feel, forgiveness and trajectory control. Now, with it’s new mixed set of muscleback short irons (7-PW) and cavity back long irons (2-6), general consumers can take advantage of the custom design, as well.
The new irons undergo a 5-step forging process, according to Cobra, and have slightly different designs than the original previously released to the public. While the short irons have a compact design for workability and shot-shaping that better players prefer, the CBs have a new “muscle cavity” designed for a more “workable trajectory” and softer feel, while still delivering forgiveness on off-center strikes, according to the company.
“These high-performance Cobra irons consistently deliver the workability and shot-shaping control that I need to be competitive on course. I’ve been playing them for a few years, and know better players are going to appreciate the sleek look and soft feel, along with the ability to work the ball without sacrificing forgiveness,” said Fowler.

Each of the irons have CNC-milled faces and grooves, Cobra’s familiar diamondized (DBM) finish, and come equipped with Golf pride Tour Velvet Cobra Connect technology, powered by Arrcos, that work with the Arccos caddie app to track stats.
The irons, which hit retail on November 2 for $1,099, come with regular or stiff KBS S-Taper black PVD shafts. The stock sets come with 4-6 CB irons and 7-PW MB irons; 2 and 3 irons are also available. Full CB sets will also be available through custom in RH and LH, as well as a full MB set in RH only.
