Summary: THE RUBBER INSERTS ON THE FACE OF THE IRONS ARE COMING APART- CHANGING THE ANGLE OF THE METAL INSERT WITH RESPECT TO ITS METAL HOUSING-FIVE OUT OF SIX IRONS SO FAR!
COULD BE A VERY DANGEROUS SIUTATION IF THE METAL INSERT COMES LOOSE AND HITS SOMEONE IN THE HEAD.=THE IRONS ARE ESSENTIALLY USELESS AND POSSIBILITY DANGEROUS TO USE.
SO FAR COBRA CLAIMS NO RESPONSIBILITY;MY CLUB IS SENDING A LETTER TO THE PRESIDENT OF COBRA AND A CUSOMER ADVOCATEIN AN ATTEMPT TO RECALL THE DEFECTIVE CLUBS.
Summary: I have tried a crazy number of iron sets... looking for the ONE. These irons are outstanding and are in the bag. The easiest to hit irons I ever hit. Plus the inserts are as soft as a forged iron.
For being "max" game improvement, they have less offset than one might expect... Mine have the factory Nippon S flex and they are excellent in feel and trajectory and weight.
The distance is very good, I do not find them to be crazy long, just above average.
Only issue is with the face insert, it is SOFT and marks up very easily... after a few seasons (2-3x/week play) these are going to look pretty chewed up. But since they are the best yet (for me), and I got a deal on them at Golfsmith used... worth that aggravation...
I score in the 70's, but these are perfect... easy is good. These are so consistent... I save the target golf blade type dance for my wedges and even those are Nickent 4DX Pro forged, not the usual. Did I mention... easy is good?
Customer Service: Probably will find out when I ask them to replace the faces!

Shoots in the 80s
Model Reviewed: Cobra UFI Irons
Summary: Over 48 years of golfing I have owned every major brand of Irons! Starting with a Sears beginner set, Spaulding Executives (very good game improvement set in 60's), McGregor MT, Ping Eye, Callaway X series, Taylormade Racs, Nicket 4DX, Lynx HXI, Titeist CB-7xx, etc. So you can see I am never shy about buying golf clubs. Then I came across these Cobra UFI irons, and I think I found Nirvana!
What I like best is minimum offset, Nippon stock steel shafts, 9 metal alloy face insert, but best of all the shape of head which inspires confidence. And confidence is #1 to hit consistent shots. I demoed Graphite shaft 6 iron and it was absolutely the smoothest, softest club I ever hit in 48 years. But the club felt too light and the shot balooned a bit much to my liking. The steel shafted clubs have just the right weight. I can feel where the head is throughout my swing. The ball flight is medium high and long. These irons just want to go straight even on mis-hits. I am not missing many greens from 160 yards in.
The grips are basic Golf Pride and will be upgraded by me after some use. Price is not cheap. I paid $699 for 4I thru Gap wedge. Don't know about durability yet. These clubs can NOT be bent for lie. So you have choice of standard or 2 degrees upright and that's it. If you try to bend them the face insert can pop out and Cobra will void any Warranty.
Customer Service: Not needed so far.
