With the launch of the new Cobra AeroJet driver and metal wood family Cobra have also unveiled the AeroJet and AeroJet One Length irons to complete the set.

The new AeroJet and AeroJet One Length irons are game-improvement clubs with a unique internal weighting system and face designed to create more distance and provide a higher-launch angle and a premium on speed and forgiveness.

The new irons feature a sleek new design with a refined topline, and several impressive, technologies including Cobra’s new PWR-BRIDGE weighting design that evolves upon the PWR-COR in LTDx to optimise weight distribution and flexibility for unleashed power and distance.

The new PWR-BRIDGE design achieves the perfect blend of low CG and fast ball speed using an innovative floating weight design. COBRA engineers discovered that they could achieve the benefits of low CG, added face and body flexion by creating a separate weight that is untethered that is called PWR-BRIDGE.

The PWR-BRIDGE design comprises a 70g steel weight that is completely separated from the face, body and sole of the iron. The design positions the CG low to optimise launch and creates room for the body structure to flex freely around the PWR-BRIDGE, resulting in explosive ball speed and distance.

To further increase face deflection the AeroJet irons feature COBRA’s largest PWR-SHELL insert with a new H.O.T. FACE variable thickness pattern, featuring a 22% larger thin area (1.9 mm at the thinnest point) than the previous LTDxTM irons.

H.O.T. FACE (which stands for Highly Optimised Topology) was designed using artificial intelligence and features multiple zones with optimised thicknesses and shaping to deliver a larger Sweet Zone for more efficient speed and spin across the entire club face. Together, the PWR-BRIDGE and PWR-SHELL, and H.O.T Face designs produce up 10% more face deflection than LTDxTM, resulting in up to 1.8 mph faster speed and up to 3.5 more yards of total distance when tested on the robot.

To improve overall feel, a Polymer Feel System is incorporated using an injected polymer filler that encases the hollow area around the PWR-BRIDGE weight to damp vibration for a soft, forged-like feel and sound at impact.

The new AeroJet Irons are available in both Variable and ONE Length options, allowing players to choose between a traditional setup that they’re used to, or a ONE Length configuration for a simplified setup and swing for improved consistency.

The AeroJet Variable Length irons are available in a 5-GW set comp (RH/LH; Steel Stiff and Reg – €949) or 4-PW (RH; Steel Stiff – €949). Each steel option comes standard in premium aftermarket KBS Tour Lite 100 shafts (reg & stiff) and Lamkin Crossline grips. The stock graphite offering is an aftermarket KBS PGI (85 – Stiff flex; 75 – Regular flex; 65 – Lite flex, 55 in women’s flex). An AeroJet Women’s offering comes in a silver and ice blue colourways (RH only; €1049), consisting of 5-PW, SW.

COBRA Aerojet ONE Length irons are a unique set-up where all irons are built to 7 iron length (37.25”). They are available in 5-GW in graphite (RH – Stiff, Reg, Lite – €1049) and in steel (RH/LH – Stiff & Reg – €949) . Each steel option comes standard in premium aftermarket KBS Tour Lite 100 shafts (reg & stiff) and Lamkin Crossline grips featuring Red & Blue paint fill. The stock graphite offering is an aftermarket KBS PGI (85 – Stiff flex; 75 – Regular flex; 65 – Lite flex).

The AeroJet family of products will be available at retail and online, February 10, 2023. For more information, visit www.cobragolf.com/en-uk
