Limited Edition Copper Irons


Recommended Posts

Okay, so I remember last year when Mizuno came out with a set of all copper MP-20's. I thought they were cool. They sold for $2000.00 per set. Which is expensive, but to be honest, it didn't seem ridiculous. Anyway, I never really considered getting a set. But I do think they are cool.

Now Cobra has come out with a set.

Cobra's set are going for $2500.00. 

Which again, is a lot. But in my opinion it isn't ridiculous. I'm just not sure who these clubs are targeting? Old guys? ... Young guys? ... Collectors? Mizuno seems to have much more of a cult like following when it comes to their irons. Does Cobra have enough cache' to make people run out and get a set of these? ... I don't know? What do you all think?

I guess if you wanted to be like Rickie these are the clubs you buy. Though based on recent form, not sure that's much of a selling point.

These clubs look good from the back but I found the top down view far less attractive. Similar to the Hogans where the hosel look disproportionally thick versus the top line of the blade. Just my opinion.

Copper "should" have a very soft feel. I wonder how they plan to keep it as Copper though.

Coppertone 😜

The Mizuno irons were raw copper, so they didn’t. I don’t know the exact finish in the Cobra set.

Yeah, my Dad was a plumber, my grandfather was a plumber. I’m a fancy plumber. I’m like Mona Lisa Devito.

I thought for the raw finish, they wanted them to patina.

Then they can be called Statue of Liberty irons.

    • Hi Thank you for your input. Exercise has helped me thru the numerous injuries from most likely a bad swing. But as time goes, I learned to exercise the muscles which I had injured just so that I could keep on playing against my doctors advise. I exercise my upper body so I feel less pain on my left shoulder and do Yoga and planks to strengthen my core so I do not re-injure my lower back. Bicycling has also helped to get my legs stronger. When practice putting for an hour my back is shot so is my plantar fasciitis. I would love to know what sort of weight training and exercise regimen is specific for the golfing muscles per se. BTW I am 58
    • And those are the good players.  After the culled the field on Friday.  
    • I've never played golf drunk.  But I do take a sip of an Italian Sports Drink on occasion to keep the swing well-oiled.
    • Interesting stat on Sky. The field today is +2 on holes 10-16. 17 and 18??  +97!!
    • Of course there are many different levels of "drunk". Can't say I've ever played with anyone who was literally falling-down drunk, but there have certainly been many experiences with people of lesser levels of intoxication.  Here in the US, it isn't uncommon to have scramble events that include people that aren't regular golfers. Those events can get very sloppy. Once I played in one of these scrambles with this very friendly fellow who alternated between marijuana and beer for the entire 18 holes.  The word we use here is contact buzz and I think I would have failed a piss test the next day. It was fun, but I'm not entirely sure it was golf.
