For those who don't follow the single length scene, you're probably surprised to see those lie angles. I have heard two reasons why Cobra does that. One, the lighter shafts with longer tip sections in the lower lofts lead to more toe droop, and vice versa for the short irons. Two, hackers swing the lower loft clubs harder so they get more toe droop on them. I'd add third, probably to help fight slicing on the lower lofts. Surprisingly I didn't find the flat long irons to want to go right on me. By the book, I'd normally be at 64 or 65 degrees for a 37 inch club.
I think the one photo exaggerates the length variations in the set, but they do range from 37 to 37 &3/16ths. I might clean that up if/when I change grips.
I went out tonight and played them for several holes from shorter tees, using the 5 and 6 irons off the tee. Played two balls all the way. I measured all my shots with GPS. The 5 iron is strong off the tee. My first hit went 205, which is crazy. There was some downhill at the end, though. I came up with some rough carry numbers, but later I realized I was swinging all out. So they are weird.
5) carry unknown, 180-190 total.
I can't figure those gaps out yet. I need more time and to calm my swing down. They were going nice and high. At 100%, the GW was hitting moon balls. Finally on the last hole, I hit a GW and then PW approach with a nice moderate swing. They had a good normal trajectory and went just a few yards less.
I was hitting the middle of the face for the most part. The different shafted clubs do feel different but it might not be a problem. The sound and feel of the hollow irons is clicky. Nowhere near as nice as my TS2's.
Chipping with the GW was crappy at first. The ball seemed to go nowhere off the lighter head. On the last hole I did 5 different chips with it, thinking 7 iron but with more loft, and I rolled them a lot better. It would be an adjustment for sure.
And that's the thing. You can't judge how SL is going to work until you've played them for several and I mean several rounds. So I think these have some potential. I'll have to nail down the yardages before they go in the bag for a money game. I have a spot in the bag for the 5 iron right now, though. It will be a long iron for me.
