Cobra reintroduce famed KING Oversized irons
Cobra’s largest iron head ever
Words: Dan Owen
Cobra Golf today reintroduced its famed KING Oversized irons featuring COBRA’s largest iron head and the brands largest Sweet Zone ever.
The oversized profile coupled with improved performance technologies deliver an easy to hit iron built for explosive distance without sacrificing forgiveness or control.
“At COBRA Golf we are excited to bring back the KING Oversized set, and introduce our first iron that is at the USGA’s COR Limit,” said Jose Miraflor, Sr. Director of Product Marketing, COBRA Golf. “The oversized head will provide golfers with even more speed and distance from centre and off–centre.”
COBRA Golf released its first set of Oversized irons in 1994 and they quickly became the performance standard and the game’s best-selling irons from 1995-1996. Now, the new and improved KING Oversized irons are once again poised to be true game-changers.
Featuring an all new PWRshell face technology, which helps to lower and centre CG (Centre of Gravity), and provides a thinner, lighter face and sole structure, delivering higher ball speeds across the face for more distance. A full-hollow body construction throughout the set, delivers a soft, yet solid sound for higher launch and improved consistency.
Additionally, a 100% milled face improves groove structures for maximum spin and trajectory control, while progressive spin technology delivers optimum spin performance throughout the set. V-grooves on the 4-6 irons reduce spin for more distance, U-grooves on the 7-PW increase spin for more controlled shots into greens, and wedge spaced grooves on the GW and SW produce extra spin for scoring around the green.
Multi-material cavity construction with a new aluminum medallion badge saves weight that is then positioned by high density tungsten weighting in the toe, creating the low and centered CG in an oversized head. A premium nickel chrome finish provides long-lasting durability and smooth aesthetics.
“Really the key to distance is lower CG, which is a big challenge when you create a larger iron,” said Miraflor. “Our multi-material cavity construction and strategically placed tungsten weighting in our KING Oversized irons allows us to place CG lower, which ultimately delivers more speed and higher launch.”
The Oversized iron set in RH or LH, available January 13th 2017, is comprised of 7 irons (4-PW / 5-SW) available in steel (£699) in stiff and regular flex or graphite (5-SW) (£799) in regular and light flex. The irons feature a black Lamkin Ace Crossline grip and come stock with a UST Recoil 460 ES graphite shaft or a True Temper XP 85 steel shaft.
