First time poster here and I can't seem to make up my mind between the Cobra F-Max irons/hybrids or the Callaway Steelhead XR irons/hybrids combo sets on sale at Dick's Sporting Goods.  I am a 48 yr old high handicapper just trying to break 100 each time out (not very successful normally) and am looking to upgrade from some 10-12 year old Tommy Armour clubs.  Any thoughts/advice/opinions/reviews would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Hello and welcome to TST! The obvious first question would be ....have you hit them both? It’s the only definite way to make a solid, informed decision. If you’re not going to test them...FWIW I played the Callaway Steelhead irons and didn’t care for the very ‘clunky’ sound they made. Cheers.

Welcome to TST.   @vinsk gave you some great advice.   I realize with the down time everyone has right now it is the optimum time to practice.   You don't want to make a mistake and buy a set of clubs w/o testing them and then realize you don't like them.    Check and see Dick's  return policy.     

Good luck

Welcome to TST. I would recommend the Cobra. I have a friend who is a high handicapper who just bought a complete set of the Cobra F-Max, got a great deal at Dicks, and he loves them. I have tried the clubs and like them as well. But as said above you really need to go to Dicks, or elsewhere, and hit both sets of clubs, see which ones you like.

I've played Cobra clubs for years, all my woods and driver are Cobra. I did however switch my irons to Cleveland HB Launchers because I really like the hybrid design. I shoot in the 90s myself, I need all the help I can get.

Best of luck and enjoy the search.
