The idea behind progressive irons sets is to give players a way to optimize the performance of each club in the bag. And that is what engineers at Cobra Golf were looking to achieve when they created the King F6 line.
For starters, the F6s are built in four different ways. The long irons, Nos. 3-5, feature a full-hollow construction, while the mid-irons, Nos. 6 and 7, are half-hollow. The short irons, 8-PW, boast a deep undercut cavity-back design, and the wedges, GW-SW, come with a specialty muscleback shape and tour-contoured sole.
In addition, the clubs have V grooves on the long irons, U grooves on the mid- and short irons and wedge grooves on the SW and GW.
“In designing the King F6 irons, we answered the different needs of golfers,” says Jose Miraflor, director of product marketing for Cobra Golf. “You shouldn’t have to chose between distance and forgiveness, feel or accuracy. Rather, you should be able to have it all.
“And with these clubs, we are providing long irons that fly high, long and straight; mid-irons that are consistent and accurate; short irons whose trajectory and spin control help golfers get close to the pin; and specialty wedges for versatility around the green.”
The F6s also utilize what Miraflor calls T.O.P. technology, which removes up to 10 grams of weight from above the hitting zone in the irons from 3-PW, so that the center of gravity is lower, for better feel and performance. But with the wedges, the engineers were able to raise the CG for improved trajectory control. At the same time, a speed channel has been positioned on the sole near the leading edge of the clubface to deliver more ball speed and increase launch angles.
