Hot List Gold 2023

Our Review:

WHAT IT DOES: Yes, even clubs designed for the less-skilled are getting the artificial-intelligence treatment these days. In this instance, the computer simulations led Cobra down a path to using 17-4 stainless steel for a face that features 15 variable-thickness zones. The face insert is actually a little larger than the previous T-Rail version, but it weighs less, promoting more bend. To address sound, which was too loud in the previous T-Rail, thicker internal ribs are used to dampen the noise. In a nod to its target audience, these are available only in graphite shafts. 

WHY WE LIKE IT: Some high-handicappers still love to compete. For others golf is primarily a social endeavor, and enjoyment comes from hitting a few well-struck shots more so than delivering a score after 18 holes. If the latter sounds like you, then consider these irons. The oversize shape provides a can’t-miss vibe, and the rails on the bottom are smartly designed to create ample bounce to prevent the club from digging (like the nose of a ski). In addition, the front portion of the rails is hollow, which adds some needed flex to the leading edge of the face.  Read more>>

Player Comments
"Fun club to hit. While the appearance of the oversize head took getting used to, seeing the ball launch high and straight and land soft, it became fun to hit. Light and easy through the hitting zone."
Handicap, 8
“It feels very quick through impact and hot off the face. I have no problem getting the ball in the air and on the proper trajectory. Even the mis-hits feel pleasant.”
Handicap, 14
"Two-tone design hides the hybrid look of the club well. Particularly the pitching wedge is very well done. Looks and feels like a high quality club. Long and straight with higher-lofted irons."
