Cobra Vs Titleist Irons – Who Makes The Better Clubs

Cobra and Titleist are both major manufacturers in the golf industry. Both are known to make extremely good products throughout their range. From the driver, fairway wood, hybrid, and irons.

Although cobra also makes wedges and putters, Titleist far outperforms them in this category, their Vokey wedges and Scotty Cameron putters are some of the best in the world. Titleists main focus is actually their golf ball, the ProV. They pride themselves on making the number one ball in golf.

Titleist Golf History

Titleist Golf Clubs

The founder of Titleist Golf was Phillip W. “Skipper” Young, he was a golfer himself, and graduated from Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

After playing a match that he lost, Phil was convinced that it was the ball and not him, he had the ball x-rayed, to his astonishment the ball’s core was off center. He started testing other golf balls and found the same thing. From that day on he started creating his own golf ball and so Titleist was created.

By the 1949 US Open the Titleist was the most played golf ball at the tournament, from that day on the Titleist ball has been the most popular ball in the world. Not long after that, they started creating other products like drivers, irons, wedges, and putters.

Cobra Golf History

Cobra Golf was invented in 1973 by Thomas L. Crow. Thomas was a decent golfer himself, winning the 1961 Australian Amateur. Thomas dedicated the Cobra brand to the amateur golfer. He felt like the clubs that were being produced at the time were aimed at the professionals and low handicap golfers.

He started producing clubs with graphite shafts and larger club heads to help with distance and forgiveness. In 2010 Cobra was purchased by PUMA, a well-known clothing brand. Since then their brand has grown to its peak height. With players like Rickie Fowler and Bryson DeChambeau in their ranks, they have also widened their range to all levels of golfers.

Cobra Speedzone

The Cobra Speedzone irons are great, the look, feel, and sound is incredible.

Both of the club manufacturers are really big hitters when it comes to producing quality products. From beginners and high handicap players to low handicap or tour players, they both have amazing products.

However, we would suggest sticking with Cobra if you are a beginner, high handicap, and mid handicap player, this is Cobra’s main focus plus their price point is better. As a low handicap player we would suggest using Titleist over Cobra, Titleist is known for producing incredible forged clubs and definitely have an up on Cobra when it comes to this.

Either way, both manufacturers produce incredible products, it is always beneficial to get fitted for both if you can, this will give you a great idea of which product works best for you.
