Cobra Darkspeed Vs Cobra Aerojet Irons

Cobra Darkspeed Vs Cobra Aerojet Irons

Only a year separates the Cobra Darkspeed and Aerojet irons.

So are there any major differences between them? Let’s find out.

Cobra Darkspeed Irons Overview

“The Darkspeed irons feature HOT face design, refined PWR-BRIDGE weighting and hollow body construction.”

The Cobra Darkspeed look great with their matte gunmetal finish, shrunk down sole and more compact face profile.

But they are still forgiving. The single-post suspended PWR-BRIDGE weight allows for more stability which means tighter dispersion.

They are mid-high launch and yielded slightly above average distance for me. The Cobra Darkspeed irons retail for $1000.

Cobra Aerojet Irons Overview

“The Aerojet irons feature soft polymer inserts, HOT face design and PWR-BRIDGE weighting.”

The Aerojet irons have slightly thicker soles and a chrome finish.

They can be a bit more forgiving because of the larger face profile; but in general, they played about 5 yards shorter than the Cobra Darkspeed irons.

The dual-post suspended weight design seemed to hinder face flexion a bit relative to the single-post weighting of the Cobra Darkspeed irons. The Aerojet irons are $800.

“The Aerojet irons are still good, forgiving GI irons; but for better distance, try the Cobra Darkspeed irons.”

Cobra Darkspeed First Impressions

“I was immediately drawn to the dark, gunmetal finish.”

But once I started taking swings with the 7-iron, I was enamored with the feel. The Cobra Darkspeed irons feature a layer of soft polymer which is made possible by the hollow body design.

And if you don’t like the feel of hollow body irons because they feel unstable and thin, the Cobra Darkspeed irons will change your mind.

Instead of a thin, unwieldy feel at impact, they yield a solid, powerful impact. They feel hot off the face. You can feel them react as a result of the hollow body design; but the soft polymer insert gives them a more substantial sensation.

And I was really impressed with the control dynamic numbers. Yes, the Cobra Darkspeed irons play long. But distance is only part of the equation.

You have to be able to get the ball up with spin and have it come down at a favorable angle in order to hold greens and get looks at birdie.

My average launch angle with the Cobra Darkspeed 7-iron was 18.6 degrees which resulted in an average descent angle of 48 degrees.

That’s a great combination for sticking the green. Still, my carry distance stayed in the 180’s so the height, angles and spin didn’t affect distance negatively.

Cobra Aerojet Irons – First Impressions

“Right away, we liked the moderate footprint of these irons.”

We could just tell by looking at them out of the packaging that they would suit the needs of a wide variety of everyday golfers. They look forgiving, are forgiving and will provide you the launch angles you need for any kind of lie. Around the pin, you can unleash their full launch potential to nail fast greens. And from distance, the naturally low launch will give you piercing trajectory and ball speed.

The Cobra Iron Family

“The T-rail irons are also a handy choice for high handicappers.”

They sport a hybrid iron design with baffler rails to help you glide through rough turf. These are definitely for players scoring above 100.

Who Are the Cobra Darkspeed Irons for?

There is also enough forgiveness and accuracy in these irons to make them viable for inexperienced golfers.

Bottom line: the Cobra Darkspeed irons will help you score. For high handicappers, they strike a very favorable balance of distance, spin and launch. The Cobra Darkspeed irons currently retail for $1,000.

Who Are the Cobra Aerojet Irons for?

“The Cobra Aerojet irons would be a great choice for high handicappers looking to score a set that will still be of use to them as they improve.”

While spin control was a bit lacking (especially in the shorter irons), our testers really didn’t care because of how forgiving these irons are. They provide great distance thanks to the naturally strong loft but are tempered nicely by a sizable undercut cavity and moderate soles.
