The new Cobra Darkspeed irons look to provide better sound, feel, and distance in an approachable hollow-body package. By going with a hollow-body design, they are able to leverage the techniques they use in their drivers and industry-leading fairway woods. But does that lead to a good set of irons?
In our Cobra Darkspeed Irons review, we are going to cover:
Let’s dive into each and our final verdict on the Darkspeed irons.
The following are some of the key features of the new Cobra Darkspeed irons that set them apart from other irons sets:
|PWRSHELL insert and suspended PWR-BRIDGE design return to add more flex to the face to increase ball speed
|Acoustic and Feel Upgrades
|The hollow cavity within the head is filled with foam microspheres to improve sounds and feel
|AI-designed multi-thickness H.O.T. face returns to improve speed and spin across the entire face
The PWRSHELL, PWR-BRIDGE weight, and the H.O.T. face design process are all carried over from Cobra’s drivers and fairway woods, meaning that these new improvements have already been tested and found to be extremely useful.
The Darkspeed irons come in three different models:
Outside of the standard model, the other two are fairly self-explanatory. The One Length irons use the same technology as the standard model, but all of the irons are the same length, allowing golfers a familiar stance and feel with every iron. The women’s irons are the same technology but in a lighter and more flexible package to improve swing speed.
The Darkspeed irons offer a lot on paper, but that doesn’t mean that there are no drawbacks. They are high-quality, consistent clubs, but it is important to consider the following pros and cons when deciding whether to buy them:
Overall, the Darkspeed irons provide many advantages that hollow-body iron lovers are looking for. That being said, there are natural disadvantages to hollow-body irons, like less workability and an overall clunkier look. Those looking for this type of iron usually value the forgiveness and distance they provide enough to get past these small flaws.
As a classic hollow-body iron, with an unsupported face designed for greater distance and forgiveness, the Darkspeed iron is designed for mid-high handicappers or those who need some assistance getting distance on their iron shots. While they will provide consistency and long, straight shots for any golfer, their lack of workability will be a limiting factor for those who know how to shape their shots and want a club that allows them to, and most low-handicap golfers are already comfortable with their stock iron distances.

I’ve been at Worldwide Golf Shops for 6 years, and I’ve been playing golf for 23 years. I have played a few mini tour events but now compete occasionally at the amateur level– currently a +2.1 handicap. I am a bit of a tinkerer when it comes to golf and golf clubs. I enjoy testing all aspects of different products, utilizing various fitting systems and learning about all the different club shafts, club lengths, golf balls, and putter styles. Not just for my game, but to help customers of all calibers.
