Cobra Golf is introducing the new LIMIT3D irons, which it says are the world’s first set of commercially available 3D-printed steel irons. After becoming the first golf company to introduce a 3D-printed steel putter in 2020 and then following it up with a full line of KING 3D-printed multi-material putters in 2021, engineers at COBRA set out to be the first to apply the new technology to iron design.

Cobra partnered with nTop, a leader in computational design software whose namesake product helps companies create better-performing, state-of-the-art designs that leverage the benefits of additive manufacturing. Leveraging their partnership with nTop, Cobra embarked on an ambitious goal to create a compact player’s blade profile that offers a similar level of forgiveness as an oversized, game-improvement club with the feel of a forged iron. The LIMIT3D irons are the product of these innovative advancements and are an industry first in performance and manufacturing.

Designed using nTop’s software and manufactured with 3D printing technology, Cobra says the LIMIT3D 3D printed irons are not just a technological marvel, but a game-changer in performance. The fully 3D printed 316L stainless steel body features an innovative internal lattice structure that allows 33 percent of the overall clubhead weight to be repositioned without sacrificing strength. This unique design, only possible using 3D printing, allows for up to 100g of tungsten to be placed in the heel and toe areas of the clubhead, creating a low CG and an exceptionally high moment of inertia (MOI) relative to the shape and size of the club. The result is a compact blade shape with a low CG location, high forgiveness, and distance comparable to that of a player’s distance or game improvement model such as Cobra’s KING TEC or TEC-X irons. Get ready to elevate your game with these revolutionary irons.

“Our new Limited-Edition 3D Printed irons represent Cobra’s dedication to pushing performance and technology to the limits,” said Jose Miraflor, Vice President of Product Architecture for Cobra Golf. “These incredible new irons are the most significant technological advancement to happen to the category in the past 20 years and offer a look into the future of golf club design and performance.”

Only 500 sets of the new LIMIT3Ds are available worldwide (350 in the US and Canada). Each of the first 500 sets is 3D-printed iron marked with 1/500, which truly makes them the “first” of their kind. Beginning on June 7, these ultra-premium limited-edition irons will be available for custom order only in the US and Canada.

The MSRP will be $3,000 for 4-PWons in RH only, with a selection of aftermarket steel and graphite shafts set configurati and grips.
