Best One Length Irons – Buyer’s Guide – 2021 Edition

List Of One Length Irons

Quick Summary

One Length irons have simplified the game of golf. Instead of changing your spine angle and swing arc for each iron in the bag, single length irons effectively allow you to use your ‘7 iron swing’ for every iron in your set. You can also keep the ball in the exact same position in your stance, removing yet another variable from your iron game. 

Pioneered by Bryson DeChambeau and Cobra Golf, the one length formula appears to be working for a lot of amateur players. If you read the reviews on Youtube, CobraGolf or GolfWRX, it becomes pretty clear that once you go one length, there’s no going back to variable length irons. 

Ultimately, single length irons have the potential to improve your consistency without sacrificing distance. That is why they are so frequently sold out. The appetite for this product range is strong, and rightfully so. 

Best One Length Irons For Low Handicaps

Cobra King Forged One Length Irons

Cobra King Forged One Length Irons

The Cobra King Forged One Length Irons are the same model that Bryson DeChambeau uses. They are better suited to highly skilled golfers with fast swing speeds (ie 0 to 6 handicaps). Unlike the Forged Tec Irons (featured lower down the article), the Forged One Length Irons have more traditional lofts (ie weaker), and the lie angle is exactly the same throughout the set. 

  • Handicap Range: 0 – 6
  • Better suited to faster swing speeds
  • More traditional lofts, across the set
  • Ideal if you want generate a bit more spin, and shape your ball flight
  • The lie angle is exactly the same across the set, sitting at 62.5°
  • These irons have the least amount of offset

Best One Length Irons For Mid Handicaps

Cobra King Forged Tec One Length Irons

Cobra Forged Tec One Length Irons 4

The Cobra Forged Tec Single Length Irons are comparable to the Taylormade P790’s, the Titleist T200’s and the Ping i500’s. In other words, they are good-looking, player distance irons with a compact head that still have more than enough game improvement technology for most players. 

You can expect these irons to launch high without too much backspin or sidespin. It’s easy to understand why they are so frequently sold out. Cobra can’t make enough of these bad boys.  

  • Handicap Range: 3-15
  • Each iron is the same length as a 7 iron (37.5″)
  • High launch, mid-to-low spin
  • Hollow designs deliver low CG and controlled distance
  • Foam insert ensures a softer feel and better sound
  • PWRShell Forged face insert creates a larger sweet-zone for higher launch and faster ball speed
  • Tungsten weighting centers the CG behind the hitting zone to maximize distance and precision

  1. Nice review except for the part about Cobra Golf and Bryson pioneering single length irons. They have been around for at least 40 or 50 years and probably longer than that. Tommy Armour was selling their “Equal Length” irons back in the 80’s. There are a lot of advantages to same length irons, but like most stuff in golf, people have thought of it before.
