Cobra have been at the forefront when it comes to golf clubs design and innovation, and they have taken it a step further creating their brand new limited edition 3D printed irons available to the public. 

3D printing is something which Cobra have done in the past with their club design most recently with their Cobra KING 3D putters but have also 3D printed irons for the likes of Bryson DeChambeau in the past to strengthen the face. 

What we have with the Cobra LIMIT3D irons is an iron which has the look of a blade but has performance of a game improvement iron. You’re probably wondering how that is possible, well it is and here is how.

The Looks

Now this is probably one of the best-looking irons if come across this year. It’s compact head shape is slightly smaller than the Cobra King Tour iron but it it looks great on the eye. The top line is thin but not to thin and on the back of the club you have 3D lattice design which is what sits internally in the club head. In the looks department it’s a winner. 

The Tech

Now we get to the fun part, the tech behind this iron. The process is quite lengthy, it takes a day to create 32 iron heads, but when you’re creating something which as good as this you can’t rush it. Cobra partnered with nTop, a leader in computational design software, to make these stunning clubs. They input the design into the 3D printer and then the fun begins. The 3D printer makes over 2,400 passes adding the steel power each time which is bonded together using a laser. The fully 3D printed 316L stainless steel body features an innovative internal lattice structure that allows 33% of the overall clubhead weight to be repositioned without sacrificing strength. This unique design, which is only possible using 3D printing, allows for up to 100g of tungsten to be placed in the heel and toe areas of the clubhead, creating a low CG and an exceptionally high moment of inertia (MOI) relative to the shape and size of the club. The result is a compact blade shape with a low CG location, high forgiveness, and distance comparable to that of a player’s distance or game improvement iron.  

“Our new limited-edition 3D printed irons represent Cobra’s dedication to pushing performance and technology to the limits. These incredible new irons are the most significant technological advancement to happen to the category in the past 20 years and offer a look into the future of golf club design and performance.”

– Jose Miraflor, Vice President of Product Architecture, Cobra Golf

The bunkered Verdict

These irons are so easy and fun to hit. They look great, feel great and on mishits they deliver the distance you would expect from a game improvement iron. This new design really is incredible, and this is the future of club design in my opinion. For high handicappers that want to play a blade but can’t because of the unforgiving nature of that iron type, your prayers have been answered with the Cobra LIMIT3D irons. If you are wanting a blade that is slightly more forgiving, then these are for you but be quick as there only 500 sets available. They do come with a punchy price tag but when it’s something as special as these irons it is worth it.
