Ping G410 Vs Cobra F9 Irons Comparison And Review

When the Cobra F9’s were released, Cobra were still making a name for themselves while Ping have long been known to produce clubs of the finest quality.

Both of these sets are similar distance irons and not the newest models but still right up there in terms of performance.

Ping G410 Irons

Released in 2019, these are right up there in terms of performance with the G425’s which came out after the G410’s.

The G410’s are built for distance and workability, for high to mid handicappers and slightly better players but also incorporate a lot of forgiveness with the Variable Face Thickness expanding the sweet spot and the hinge at the heel adding flex on impact.

Low COG from Tungsten weighting allows these irons to fly easily in all conditions.

Cobra F9 Irons Overview

The Cobra F9’s are built more with Distance and workability in mind.

The CNC milled face grooves offer excellent interaction with the ball and the Variable face thickness offers forgiveness.

The clubs look solid at address and the ultra thin face really makes the ball fly while the multi material badge offers a superior feel for these irons.

Overall the G410’s are slightly more forgiving and the F9’s are longer and more workable.

Hard to judge between these but we would just edge with the G410’s for the regular player.

Ping G410 – First Impressions

The first thing you are going to notice about the G410 irons is that they are much more attractive looking than the G410’s

The tingsten weighting in the club head and hosel have lowered the COG of the irons and survived to the G425’s as well.

The clubs are less offset and slight smaller headed than the G410’s and the undercut top line offers good turf interaction to turn the heads of the better players.

The clubs also introduced variable face thickness and a flexible hinge for forgiveness on off center hits.

The clubs offer forgiveness, distance and consistency to high and mid handicap players.

An ode to these clubs is that the G425’s are not that much better at all.

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.
