PXG 0211 DC Irons Vs Cobra Radspeed Comparison And Review

Getting the most from any new set of irons is important. A lot of manufacturers claim this and that about their irons but in the end, they’re all saying the same thing – just in different ways. The true differences become apparent when you actually pick up the clubs and swing them for yourself.

If you’ve not had the opportunity to test either the PXG 0211 DC or the Cobra Radspeed irons we’re here to offer the next best thing: a no-nonsense comparison between the Cobra Radspeed and PXG 0211 DC irons.

Cobra Radspeed Irons Overview

We won’t mince words. The Radspeed irons do yield impressive ball speeds but not much else.

The Cobra Radspeed irons feature what Cobra calls “radial weighting.” The fancy name feels a bit gimmicky in light of the fact that all “radial weighting” actually is, is perimeter weights placed in the heel and the toe.

Of course, this type of weighting is meant to increase forgiveness across the perimeter of the face and indeed, the Speedzone irons do play fast even on mis-hits. You get good overall distance with these irons but it is lacking in almost every other arena.

They feature a cavity-back design but from our testing, we didn’t feel like it helped with forgiveness very much. The short blade lengths made for decent performance around the green but wait ‘til you read about our experience with the PXG 0211 DC’s.

PXG 0211 DC Irons

The PXG 0211 DC’s didn’t knock our socks off in any one performance aspect but gave a good amount of everything.

A premium maraging steel face gives these irons a spin robustness that is typical of more expensive irons. They were much easier to control on approaches than the Speedzone irons were. They also produced comparable distance to the Speedzone irons.

These sets traded off; the PXG 0211 DC 4 iron played longer than the Speedzone 4 iron but the Speedzone 5 iron was longer than the PXG 0211 DC 5 iron. It more or less went on and on like this throughout the set but the PXG 0211 DC’s had a better feel that came from a polymer insert.

The PXG 0211 DC irons have it where it counts even though they don’t do any one thing extraordinarily. They are still the better iron set if you’re looking for overall performance, though.

PXG 0211 First Impressions

We didn’t think that the PXG 0211 irons were going to perform much differently than other PXG irons we have tested based on the muscle back design.

However, they did. There was a slight improvement in overall feel and forgiveness. We tested the 4 and 5 irons first and found that we were getting better ball speed on shots around the crown and sole than with other models.

The vibration dampening properties of the COR2 insulation also made the long irons more comfortable on full swings. The PXG 0211 irons also produce pretty good launch angles thanks to moderately generous loft.

The short irons didn’t offer much in the way of workability though. Although, that might not be such an issue for beginners and high handicappers. Still, this is something you may want to consider if you plan on investing in the PXG 0211 irons as a long-term set.

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.

Who are the PXG 0211 Irons for?

While the PXG 0211 irons are billed as forgiving game-improvement irons, we have our doubts.

Yes, high handicappers and beginners will love the soft feel of these irons. Additionally, the low spin rate in the long irons means that high handicappers will be able to get down the fairway quicker.

However, these irons won’t do much for a high handicapper in terms of accuracy. If you are struggling to produce straight shots with your irons, don’t expect much help from the PXG 0211 irons.

In reality, the PXG 0211 irons would actually be better-suited to mid-handicap players.

If you aren’t having much trouble finding the sweet spot with your irons then the PXG 0211’s would be worth a look.

The 0211 Family

Included in the 0211 series of irons from PXG are the 0211 DC and 0211 ST sets. The 0211 DC irons feature a dual layer of polymer inside the head which helps preserve the maximum amount for energy. These are most certainly distance irons for high to mid handicappers.

The 0211 ST irons on the other hand have a solid-body design and have been triple forged for exceptional feel and enhanced workability. These blade irons feature a muscle back design and offer exceptional greenside spin control which makes them ideal for low handicap players.
