We take a look at what is new, how each model differs and what they can bring to your game in 2023.

What Cobra says about the 2023 King irons:

“The KING family of irons are the pinnacle of craftsmanship, developed with an industry leading 5th strike in the forging process for exceptional feel and precision ball-striking that better players demand.

“While traditional irons utilize a 4 step forging process, the KING irons add a fifth step to deliver exceptional soft feel that better players demand.

“Each iron is crafted and 5-step forged from 1025 carbon steel for a more uniform grain structure and precise shaping.

“Explosive distance combined with soft feel and a touch of added forgiveness makes KING Tour our most playable Players’ iron to date.

“The CB/MB combo flow-set prioritizes precise shot-making in your short irons with added stability and forgiveness in the long irons. Ensuring the highest level of performance as you progress through the bag.

“The CB/MB Irons are available in multiple set configurations depending on your gapping and aesthetic preferences.

“A combo set flows from more forgiving, cavity back long irons (4-6 iron) to muscle-back short irons (7- PW) designed for scoring precision.”
