Cobra Radspeed Vs Cobra F9 Irons Comparison And Review

The Cobra F9’s were among the first clubs from Cobra to make golfers stand up and take notice and after a few iterations, we now have the Radspeed irons from Cobra, but the question is how much they have improved and in what ways.

Cobra F9 Irons

It’s no secret that the Cobra F9 Speedbacks were built for just that, ballspeed.

The clubs are designed to give the maximum distance possible from a set of irons while also having superior feel and forgiveness.

Tungsten weighting, CNC Milled, ultra thin Variable face thinkness and a solid multi material badge make these clubs excellent for high to mid handicappers looking to improve their game in a number of ways.

Cobra Radspeed Irons

As Cobra have gained popularity sponsoring the likes of Bryson Dechambaeu and Segio Garcia, their budget fro creating better irons has also been increasing.

The Radspeed are going to outperform the F9’s slightly in almost every area.

They are crafted with AI for perfect weighting in every club, the multi material badge in the back is now 3D printed for maximum precision, the weighting in the clubs has been improved and they also have better turf interaction.

It’s clear that Cobra have been improving their irons considerably since the F9’s, which are still a great set of clubs. This one comes to whether you want to spend some extra money on the Radspeed set over the F9’s or not.

Cobra Radspeed – First Impressions

The first thing to notice about the irons is that they have the chunky sole of a game improvement iron and the strong lofts are made for ball speed and distance

The 10g screw weight in the toe of the club also jumps out to use and it is complemented by a matching weight in the heel of the club for the perfect CG and a high MOI,

As soon as you start striking these irons, you notice the power and consistency in the clubs, when you catch a hold of the large grips and start letting some shots rip.

That is for good reason, they are crafted with AI for perfect weight placement and the 3D printed medallion on the back improves stability and reduces vibrations.

The thin flexible face offers a ton of forgiveness and ball speed and these irons also have plenty of turf interaction for the better players.

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.

Distance: 94/100
