The Cobra Fly-Z XL are marketed as game improvement irons and they’re one of the smoothest looking pieces of golf gear I laid my eyes upon lately. The Fly-Z XL are fully packed with state of the art technologies for creating a must-hit iron, being excellent for the type of golf player these irons are aimed toward, i.e. strong and forgiving game improving irons, offering great distance and loads of performance in a classic design and, most importantly, at an affordable price.
And by affordable, I mean that the Fly-Z XL are retailing for only $500 in the steel version and $700 the graphite ones. These traditionally designed oversized irons feature Cobra’s proprietary technology, namely the Speed Face Channel which is aimed at increasing ball speeds and in the same time, to produce a more pleasant sound upon ball impact. The Fly-Z XL have a traditional muffled sound at ball impact, despite their thin face; also, the thinner club face (compared to its competition) of the Fly-Z XL adds to the explosive feel at ball impact and offers loads of forgiveness in the process, regardless where you hit the ball across the face. These babies are engineered to produce lightning fast ball speeds, higher launch trajectories and increased distance while being fairly easy to control. Bottom line, Cobra did an awesome job with the Fly-Z XL, creating a truly adequate game improving iron at a decent price tag, which allows high handicap players to learn/improve their golf game whilst having fun in the process.
