Ping G10 irons vs Cobra SZ irons

5 posts in this topic

Hi folks - Wanted to see if anybody out there had an opinion on these 2 sets of irons. I got fitted yesterday and the Pro suggested that I go with a set of Ping G10s. I also demo'ed some Cobra SZ irons which I also liked.

The Pro seemed to be really be pushing the Pings, butI didn't get to hit the Cobras nearly as much as I did the Pings. Another factor is that I could save anywhere from $200-$400 if I went with the Cobras. The price difference isn't a huge factor for me, but it is a factor.

I am a 19 handicap and (when the weather allows) play about 6-8 times a month.

Any advice is appreciated. Thanks,

- Skip S.

Tested out the Ping G10 and I10 in Fall 2008, and again last spring. G10 gets the ball up really high - too high for some people, including me. Have met people who played G10 for awhile, and then traded them for something with less height.

If you need help on height, they may be just what you need. Or, it could be too much of a good thing. Just try G10 again and see.

Well I have experience with PING irons the most, but I'm not going to try to push them. However, I've played the parent company, Titleist, irons and the AP-1's are similar to size and play well. They are made out of the same 431 Stainless-steel and they have full cavity back so they must be similar. Give 'em a try if you wanna save money. Don't let your pro overtake your mind, hah if that made sense, believe me; lots of pro's try this to sell the old models. Tell him you really want to get a feel for the Cobra's before you make a decision. G10's are good, but they do launch a little high which is a turn off to most. Great forgiving club though. Follow your gut, not your pro.

G10s launch the ball like straight up, its annoying in windy conditions.

Don't know about the SZ's but the FP's (previous model) are great clubs.


I've played with people with G10's and I've noticed a very high ball flight aswell

    • It seems from the ratings that I have seen that, like me, there were a lot of people watching the final round of golf for both the women and the men at the Rio Olympics. The ratings for the men were in fact, second only to the Masters. That is truly fantastic to hear. Going into this Olympics, at least on the men's side, you might think that we were set for a complete disaster. All but a few of the high profile names dropped out for multiple reasons. Pika, safety, or the real reason - just plain tired. I suspect all that didn't play sort of wished they did. They will come out and say that they didn't miss it, because they don't want to look stupid, but the reality is they probably have a pit in their stomach for missing the first Olympics in over 100 years. I am talking about Jason Day, Jordan Spieth, and yes I suspect even Rory McIlroy.

    • Let us know how it goes when you get them.
    • According to GAME GOLF, I have 68% GIR and 13% birdies. 13%/68% (I almost never chip in for birdie) = 19.12%.
    • Damn dude, 4.1?  Wow.  I think you and I were about even when I joined here a couple years ago, 6-something.  You're going in the right direction, I'm headed the other way.  I'm actually at 9.4 at the minute but haven't updated here cuz it's painful and I consider it temporary .  Hand pain gone, actually went to the range this week, 1st time in a year.  So, I plan to throw down a 78 or so and be back under 9 by end of day, fingers crossed.  Keep rolling. No idea what my birdie conversion rate is, I'd guess pretty respectable cuz my putting never left me.
