Cobra Forged TEC Irons Design & Features
The new Forged TEC irons are the game players’ design, delivering precision and accuracy in bucket loads.
The key design from previous models is the new five-step forged body and face that the R&D team have come up with in a new refined shaping to the Forged TEC clubhead.
The irons have a thinner topline in the new model, which reduces offset and provides playability and precision while also offering a degree of forgiveness on off-centre ball strikes.
The Cobra irons are produced from 1025 carbon steel that has been precision-forged five times, and have a hollow body design filled with a lightweight foam.
Cobra’s now standard PWRSHELL Face is thinner in this model, allowing for the inclusion of a 20g of tungsten for added stability.
The irons, which are similar in performance to the TaylorMade P790 irons, are available in 3-iron to gap wedge. There is also One Length Irons available.

Verdict: Are Cobra Forged TEC Irons any good?
Cobra have worked hard on improving the feel and feedback that golfers want from blade-like irons, and the Forged TEC model certainly achieves that.
The design tweaks have added forgiveness without compromising on the ball striking and shot shaping that this iron set has been all about.
The clever changes to the clubhead that have been made to squeeze out even more distance from this latest generation and the 2022 Forged TEC irons are certainly the best yet.
The only slightly off putting thing for some golfers will be the thinner topline and the view at address, which might not inspire confidence if you are struggling with your iron play.
