The Cobra Fly-Z falls into the category of game improvement irons and they retail for $700-800 in the steel version and $900 for the graphite. The main technology included into their built is the Speed Channel groove which is to be found in the sole of the club and also behind the face. The respective tech works in tandem with an undercut cavity aimed at boosting the club’s spring-like effect during your swings. The main characteristics of the Fly-Z irons are derived from its intelligent design and Cobra managed to hit the market with a fairly easy to hit and forgiving iron yet they managed to create a club that’s not clunky despite its respectable length and which offers great feel. That’s a nice achievement given the price tag, don’t you think?
In order to “de-clunk” these the Fly-Z irons, Cobra thinned the topline, designed a compact toe and they renounced the square holed stuff which was previously found in the back cavity. The end result, you asked? Well, the Fly-Z irons deliver a smooth flowing and refined design with the chrome plating which adds to the classic look of the “package” and also makes for a tough finish that will last you for a lifetime. Even if game improving irons are not built for beauty, the Fly-Z manages to contradict the general opinion with these nice looking irons. However, Cobra didn’t sacrifice their performance for design’s sake, hence the forgiveness, overall playability and distance are still here without making your eyeballs hurt in the process. The deep zone undercut cavities you’ll find in these Cobra irons along with the low center of gravity and the wide soles are the secrets behind Fly-Z’s forgiveness and playability. The Speed Channel with its trampoline effect helps a lot with creating additional ball speed, hence superior distance. Another interesting design feature in the Fly-Z is represented by the Progressive Spin Technology; these are basically V or U shaped grooves on the face which help with consistency and dispersion. Bottom line, if you’re on the prowl for friendly golf gear offering top notch forgiveness, you’ll definitely benefit from buying these beautiful irons.
