Cobra S2 and S2 Forged irons
By Dominic Pedler - March 2010

Cobra's S2 irons are a pronounced perimeter weighted design cast from 431 stainless steel but with various multi-material design features. These include an exclusive polymer topline and toe insert; an expanded urethane sole insert and a vibration dampening back plate. The lightweight materials free up mass, working together to lower the CG, increase MOI and enhance feel, all while yielding improved launch, accuracy and distance.

The unusual, mid-width stepped sole is designed to provide the forgiveness of a wide sole but with the more turf-resistant performance of a narrower sole.

Meanwhile, Cobra's S2 Forged is a cavity back offering far more forgiveness than a traditional forged muscleback but with the feel and response associated with a soft 1025 carbon steel. The irons are targeted to accomplished players seeking distance and forgiveness, and come fitted with the Nippon NS Pro 1130 Shaft and Golf Pride Tour Velvet grip.

Both S2 models feature the company's trademark 9-Point technology which effectively widens the sweetspot.

A third model, the ultra-forgiving S2Max model is expected to complete the 2010 series and we hope to bring you details next month.

Cobra S2 irons (5-SW) £479 steel; £599 graphite (also in Women's, and Seniors). S2 Forged irons (3- PW) £749.
