Almost every golfer could use a little nudge in the distance department. Even if you are a tremendous golfer with a hole in one on every single course, you can always use more distance. The good news is, that Cobra has you covered. Today we look at our Cobra Fly-Z Irons Review, you will see more than just distance. You will also experience increased flex, vibration dampening, and adjustable hybrids that make it easy to keep your clubs feeling how you want them to feel. They are forgiving, yet consistent. These irons are graced with the Speed Channel, which you might remember from Cobra’s Fly-Z driver and woods line.
Speed channel helps to take the Cobra Fly-Z Hybrid Iron face to a whole new level. Cobra has combined the concept of a large, fast, unsupported face with an engineered trench that runs across the sole of the club and around the outer perimeter of the back harmonic cavity. The minimal face thickness gives it more pronounced flex and greater recovery upon impact. This trampoline like combination causes increased ball speeds which will send your ball a greater distance without you having to give up comfort and makes it easy to get great height on your shots.
With the deep perimeter undercut on the Fly-Z Irons, you get extreme distance on center hits and highly consistent distance on the off center hits. This is due to the unsupported face of the club. This undercut is the deepest undercut that Cobra has produced to date. Include with that the modern shape of the head and you have a club which will register higher speeds across the face. Inside the harmonic cavity is a Thermoplastic Urethane insert which is placed directly behind the impact zone. This dampens vibrations and improves the feel of the club upon impact.
The Fly-Z irons have a nice wide sole that is consistent with most game-improvement irons, but it is complimented by thinner top lines, a more compact shape than previous models, and a medium offset which causes a better look at address. Progressive Spin Technology is something else that Cobra has used in the irons. The longer irons (3-6) have V-grooves for more distance and the shorter irons (7-PW) have U-shaped grooves to increase spin.
Another neat feature with the Speed Channel is that it allows some of the extra weight on the hybrids to have been moved low and to the back into a yellow sole weight called the Center of Gravity (or CG). By moving this weight, it heightens the forgiveness of the club and steadies out the mid-high flight. These clubs are literally designed for higher ball speed and forgiveness with each shot, which can only improve your game.
The Fly-Z hybrid also has an adjustable hosel. You get a range of four loft settings across three degrees. With the included MyFly8 SmartPad, which was on Cobra’s previous BioCell hybrid. you can easily adjust the loft settings on the Cobra Fly-Z Hybrids to maximize distance and change the face angle.
The SmartPad then acts as a point of balance which enables the head to pivot and keep it squared up, or not. Adjust as you see fit. It’s your golf game, after all. The shaft on these clubs are available as graphite hybrids with graphite irons or graphite hybrids and steel irons. Both styles of shaft are solid performers and should suit quite a lot of golfers. These clubs are available as left handed and can be custom fit . The flex options when purchasing are: regular, senior, and stiff, making them a great choice for many golfers.
