Going from Cobra S2 Irons to what???

Recommended Posts

I am currently gaming a set of Cobra S2 irons (4-PW) with Nippon NS Pro stiff shafts. I am looking at getting some new irons. I would like to get more towards a players iron without going to a blade. When I bought the S2s I wasn't a great ball striker and now I am, so I could easily handle more of a players iron. I am considering Taylormade Tour Preferred MC, Cobra Bio Cell +, and Ping i25. Any thoughts??

Yep agree with those, I'll add Titleist AP2's, Callaway Apex Pro or X2 Hot Pros.

I went from Cobra S2 irons to Mizuno MP-69s. Very happy. Hope to have them for 20 years. I bought the Cobras because my game was in poor shape and I wanted the stronger lofts plus higher launch. I took some lessons and practiced and got much better. When I was looking I wanted a blade that wouldn't kill me, and that was the Mizunos.

If you want to stick with Cobra , The s3 Pro Forged are very nice and I believe they can be had for cheap.

I've hit the MP-69s. They feel great. The only problem is that I get a lot of spin on the ball as it is and the Mizuno's add even more to a point where I cant control the spin. If I could hit them with less spin or if I could control the spin, I would go for them.

As far as the S3 forged goes, I cant find any new sets anywhere and I don't want to buy them used. I have hit them, and I hit them well. If I could find them new, I would get them.

    • I've spent the week of Thanksgiving in Pinehuerst (at Talamore, actually) every year since 2007.  We've had a very few frost delays, and most years its really pleasant.  We've played in shorts lots of times.  Myrtle Beach will be about the same, or slightly warmer. Its a great time for either, not at all crowded, less slow play problems, easier to get a seat in a restaurant, you'll love it.  If you decide on Pinehurst, I can recommend a few good places.
    • I have these too, I like the look.  I really doubt that there's any advantage to be gained.
    • You could vote 0 if that number is closer to the percentage than 1. That's why there's a "0" option.
    • I'm still recovering from my golf marathon, but I'll write just a little bit now.  First and foremost, this was an absolute blast, thanks to the huge effort of the organizers, @mvmac and @iacas, to the sponsors, to the staff at Talamore and MidSouth, and to the attitude and efforts of all of the players.  I was lucky enough this past week to play with every one of my teammates (when I count my pre- and post-tournament fun rounds), and against every player on the West team except for @Golfingdad.  Ten matches total for the 2015 and 2017 Newport Cups, and I haven't been in the group with him once.  Fortunately, I've been able to play with him in Palm Springs a couple of times. I loved the matches, from watching @Pretzel and @phillyk bomb it almost off the planet, to watching my partner @bkuehn1952 sink every putt inside 10 feet (keeping the pressure off of me), to seeing @mchepp try to grind me to dust, one crumb at a time.  I enjoyed the mix  of personalities, the wide range of ages, over 40 years from top to bottom, the huge variations in our golf games.  I'm REALLY happy that the top end of the ages was victorious in the end.  I'm absolutely amazed that the end result was this close once again, although it may just be an indication that we all have reasonably accurate handicaps.   As someone mentioned earlier in this thread, a few of us blue team players talked about the challenge balls on Friday night, with most of it being less than completely enthusiastic.  As it turned out, however, I thought the challenge was pretty exhilarating, really ramping up the pressure.  Of course, my match on Saturday with @mchepp was nothing but pressure to start with, I'm not sure I needed to ramp it up any more.  You know, for us old guys, a heart attack on 18 tee wouldn't be a good thing.   Enough for now.  Once again, my thanks go out to @iacas and @mvmac, the sponsors, the venues, the players, and especially to @RandallT for keeping my lovely wife informed.
    • I'm the new guy here on this forum, so I imagine this debate has been going on for awhile so I'll just respectfully respond to this by giving my opinion on the matter: Bull-feathers! There are four things that determine the distance you hit a golf ball; the loft angle on the clubhead, the length of the club, the speed of your swing, and how close to the center sweet spot you connect with the ball. Everything else, IMO, is marketing BS. But as I said at the very beginning of this thread, my swing is not the same as it was 16 years ago when I got my X-14's so I'll be buying something. What that something is at this point I'm still not 100% certain.
