Titleist T300 Vs Cobra Aerojet Irons Comparison Overview
The Titleist T300 is the purest game improvement iron entry into the T series.
They have the great looks that you would expect from Titleist in a more forgiving package. Cobra has released the Aerojet irons and they are looking to make a splash in the game improvement iron space.
And that’s no mean feat considering the wealth of excellent game improvement irons that have been produced in recent years. But we wanted to see exactly what the Cobra Aerojet irons have to offer so we tested them against the exceptional T300 irons.
Titleist T300 Irons Overview
“The T300 irons have all the familiar markings of a good game improvement set.”
That includes a cavity back design and variable face thickness. The T300 irons also have a larger profile than most of the irons in the T series from Titleist. Overall, we liked the smooth feel of these irons that comes courtesy of a polymer insert and a refined leading edge.
The T300 irons also have a mid/high launch that higher handicap players will certainly prefer. What we didn’t like was that the spin rates were almost uncontrollable. We can’t help but think of how far our balls would be going if the side spin were kept in check.
Still, the T300 irons offer decent greenside control which is nothing new considering that these are Titleist clubs.
Cobra Aerojet Irons Overview
“The Cobra Aerojet irons also sport variable face thickness and a cavity back design.”
So right off the bat, Cobra followed a tried and true formula for the basic design of their new Aerojet irons. The Cobra Aerojet irons have a moderate footprint with a slightly raised toe area. The soles are quite chunky but not so much that they jut out at address.
They also feature a new suspended weight that lowers CG while also bracing the head from heel to toe. The Cobra Aerojet irons launch lower than the T300’s and spin rates were significantly lower which we really appreciated. Carry distance was also better with the Cobra Aerojet irons.
“If you’re looking for pure game improvement irons, the Titleist T300’s are the safer bet. They launch higher and have a more congenial CG placement for higher handicap players. The Cobra Aerojet irons are forgiving but are probably better for mid handicap players looking for a more penetrating trajectory.”
Titleist T300- First Impressions
The first thing you notice about these Cavity Irons is how the top line looks deceptively thin for an iron that is primarily built for distance.
The second thing that is immediately obvious is that there are a few key differences between the short and the longer irons.
The shorted irons have thinner soles, leading to increased workability that can be useful to even single digit handicappers while that trend is reversed in the longer irons, which focus more on distance.
The long irons have a polymer insert that makes these cavity backs sound and feel much better than a regular cavity back. The longer irons also have tungsten weighting in the head that keeps the center of gravity low and MOI high for ultimate performance.
The result is irons that generate quite a bit more distance than the AP1’s and can hold their own with any forgiving distance iron on the market.
While you are looking at a shorter distance from heel to toe with the Ping G400 irons, the COR-Eye technology ensures that if you make contact with the sweet spot, your ball is gonna go far. Almost immediately, our testers were nailing shots in the 160 yard range with the 5 iron in this set.
We also really liked the way these irons sounded – particularly the long irons. The cavity badge really works to enhance sound when you hit the sweet spots of these irons. It didn’t take us very long to get the hang of these irons and start sending missiles down the fairway.
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 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.
