The latest version builds on the previous T-Rail design to use a hollow body structure through the entire range and combines it with Cobra’s signature Baffler rails on the club sole to help improve turf interaction while also lowering the center of gravity.

With its wide-sole and hybrid design, the T-Rail irons are aimed at golfers looking to improve their play, and for players at the lower end of the swing speed spectrum who need extra release to help increase load and distance. By bringing the same technology used on the top end of the hybrid group into the iron, you get an easy-to-hit top-to-bottom group that also helps create more consistent distance gaps between clubs.

What is Hot Face?

The HOT Face technology in T-Rail irons is derived from the same AI design that Cobra drivers and Fairway woods have used in the past to improve face thickness but has been honed for a smaller face profile. Based on the face surface area of ​​the iron and the hybrid compared to the driver and golfer’s intended target, this helps boost the sweet area by 30% according to Cobra, and results in more consistent ball speeds on mishits — because nobody hits them. the time.

Now if you’re worried about what a hybrid-like hollow iron might look like, don’t worry, Cobra designers have put internal rib structures inside the kit to improve sound and feel, without sacrificing the center of gravity.

The other cool feature on the T-Rail irons is in the sole, where Cobra engineers unroll and split the Baffler bars behind the face to increase flexibility for shots that are struck toward the leading edge. This helps maintain ball speed and helps increase the run on those low-hit shots.
