Aimed at good ball strikers who want a soft-feeling iron that delivers shot-shaping control with a touch of forgiveness the new KING TOUR irons tick all the right boxes.

Unlike the CB & MB irons which are one-piece forgings, the Tour irons feature an aluminium medallion, and a TPU insert in the back cavity to offer just the right amount of ball striking forgiveness but in a tour profile good enough to suit any players eye.

A key to the enhanced forgiveness and overall performance of Cobra’s new TOUR iron are CNC undercuts in the back cavity of each iron, which allow weight to be repositioned from high centre to lower centre and heel and toe areas of the clubhead, creating improved launch conditions and more forgiveness on off centre hits.

These cavities progress from deeper in the long irons for enhanced stability, to shallower in the short irons for enhanced control. To improve feel, each CNC undercut is filled with a soft TPU material and topped with an aluminium co-moulded medallion, which both damp vibration for a more pleasing sound and feel at impact. The shaping of the TOUR irons is progressively more compact than the KINGTM Forged TEC model, featuring a thinner topline, reduced offset.
The updated Tour shape also features a slightly shortened blade length than the previous KING Tour MIM Irons to inspire improved control and workability. The TOUR model also features 2 degree stronger lofts than the CB & MB irons to produce more explosive distance off the face.

The TOUR irons are available in 3i-GW (RH/LH), with the stock set offered in 4-PW steel stiff, RH only. LH sets are available in custom. A Lamkin Crossline grip, and a KBS S-Taper 120 steel shaft in Stiff flex comes standard. They will have an RRP of €1249 for a 7 iron set
