Cobra Golf Reveals game-changing King F7 Irons
Cobra Golf introduces the most groundbreaking and versatile club into its iron family yet, the KING F7 – further expanding the offering of clubs under the revered KING name. The new KING F7 set of irons, along with COBRA’s first-ever F7 ONE LENGTH set, provides golfers with optimised performance, distance, forgiveness and control with every shot.
The KING irons build upon the popular KING F6 model that introduced the ultimate progressive set to the market by incorporating Cobra’s patented TECFLOTM technology to deliver a set that utilises advanced cavity construction to optimise the performance characteristics of each iron. A new PWRSHELL face introduces a thinner face and sole structure that increases the Sweet Zone and delivers distance, precision and forgiveness. TECFLO along with a new Thin, Optimized and Personalized (T.O.P) polymer medallion badge that is lighter than steel, allows the CG to be moved lower to create even more distance and forgiveness.
Additionally, CNC milling improves groove structures in these irons to deliver maximum spin and trajectory control throughout the set. Using proven Progressive Spin Technology, Cobra has managed to combine progressive grooves and CNC milling to deliver maximum spin for all iron types.
“The 2017 iron offering is COBRA’s most innovative and exciting yet,” said Tom Olsavsky, Head of R&D for COBRA Golf. “Not only have we improved our progressive sets this year, but we are introducing our first-ever ONE LENGTH option that will help to bring more consistency and simplicity to the game of golf for all players. In 2017 we will truly have an innovative, high-quality iron solution for every type of player.”
A full hollow design with PWRSHELL face insert in the long irons (3-5) delivers low CG with an extremely responsive face for easier to hit and high-flying long irons. In the mid irons (6-7), a half hollow design combined with PWRSHELL technology delivers optimal CG for more precise, easy-to-hit clubs, meaning more greens-in-regulation. The scoring irons (8-PW) utilise a traditional cavity back design with wedge spaced grooves for added spin and more control to attack the pins. Finishing out the KING F7 set is a specialty wedge design that provides added versatility and enhanced shot control greenside in the sand and gap wedges.
“I approach the game of golf a lot differently than most, primarily from a scientific standpoint,” said Cobra/PUMA player DeChambeau. “I have a more technical, unique swing than many other players, but there is a misconception that single-length irons are only for a single-plane swing like mine. That is simply not true. Regardless of how you swing and what your skill level is, you can benefit from the simplicity of a constant length set of irons. I am proud to be at the forefront of this with COBRA as preliminary research has shown that single-length sets can make the game easier and more enjoyable for players of all swing types.”
