Callaway Rogue – First Impressions

You can feel the power in these irons from the moment you pick them up. The clubs are solid, the lofts are strong and there is no question that these are built to make the ball fly.

What Callaway tried with the Rogue irons clearly worked as they have kept so many of their features in the new clubs and as soon as you get them on the course, you can see why.

The clubs are going to add distance to your game, especially if you are upgrading from a beginner set and it would not be uncommon for high handicappers to shave 5 or 6 shots of their round with these.

strong lofts with tungsten weighting gets a high and far flight while the flashcup face is built for speed and forgiveness.

Urethane microspheres absorb any unwanted vibrations and these are a really nice set of irons for any player.

Cobra F9 – First Impressions

Straight off the bat, the F9 irons look like exactly what they are, distance irons, with a solid and compact club which boasts a wide sole.

Smart tungsten weighting keeps the COG low in the irons and an ultra thin CNC milled face allows for exceptional ball speeds but also feel and control over the ball, especially in the shorter irons.

A Multi Material badge dampens out any unwanted vibrations which again adds to the feel of the clubs and progressive hosels ensure the perfect weighting for every club.

With Arccos sensors fitted as standard on the F9 irons, these are going the be great for mid handicappers and improving players who want to work the ball a bit more but still get the most distance possible.

Who Are The Cobra F9 Irons For:

The clubs are going to be perfect for Mid Handicappers and improvers looking to forego a little bit of forgiveness for more control but still want to get more distance.

The clubs wont be for complete beginners but they are quite easy to hit far and straight at the same time.

The Family Of Irons

Cobra have really come into their own in terms of golf irons and the F9’s continue to be incredibly popular with their reduced price.

The F8’s which came before were also a quality set of clubs that the F9 set has worked on to add extra feel and performance.

The Cobra Speedzone & RadSpeed came after the F9’s, bringing 3D printing and Artificial Intelligence into the mix to slightly improve performance over the F9’s but not by that much and the F9’s remain a quality set of clubs for a bargain price of $500.
