It’s all go for January after the R&A and USGA published their finalised Rules of Golf. So what’s coming in? Steve Carroll outlines the changes.
Cobra Golf’s announcements continue with Fly-Z Irons
Cobra Golf’s announcements continue as the company reveals that it will also be releasing Fly-Z and Fly-Z XL irons as part of the expanded line of the Fly-Z family. These irons are said to be engineered for golfers of all levels, delivering superior feel, maximum distance and excellent consistency on every shot.
“The Fly-Z family of irons is designed to provide performance for golfers of all levels by addressing a wide span of performance needs,” said Jose Miraflor, Director of Product Marketing at COBRA Golf. “Our two game-changing irons, the Fly-Z and Fly-Z XL irons were designed to blend distance with feel while offering forgiveness and consistency.”
Cobra Golf has borrowed from its Fly-Z line of metalwoods to give the irons revolutionary Speed Channel technology – a visible trench positioned on both the cavity behind the face as well as on the sole of the irons. This has been designed to flex and recover at impact, while also delivering superb distance through faster golf ball speeds. The irons modern, enticing head shape combined with the Speed Channel make sure higher speeds across the face yield a combination of distance, forgiveness and feel in every swing.
Of the few who have played a little with these irons, the remarkable feel is said to come from the harmonic cavity insert that includes an engineered Thermoplastic Urethane insert positioned directly behind the impact zone for vibration damping and much improved feel at impact. When combined with extremely deep cavity undercutting and heel and toe weighting (Zone Weighting Technology), Fly-Z Irons are truly game-changers for all golfers.
Moving onto the oversized yet traditionally shaped Fly-Z XL Irons now. These little beauties are designed to give golfers a confidence boost at address while delivering easy and achievable distance through consistently higher trajectories. The dual hollow cavity design allows for a deeper, lower CG that offers easy up and easy distance. In addition to these advancements, the hollow construction allows for a thinner face that, along with the Speed Channel, is able to bring to the fore additional golf ball speed, incredible distance and even a save on weight. The progressive offset design helps create easy draw, too.
The Fly-Z XL Combo Set combines two different cavity designs. Wedges – 9i incorporate a traditional undercut design for precision and control through the golfer’s hands, while the 8i – 4i feature a dual cavity hollow design that results in low, back centre of gravity enabling players to achieve hits higher and further. The combo set, which includes the dual cavity design hollow and cavity back irons, also include three Fly-Z XL Hybrids that deliver exceptional distance, forgiveness and easy up performance.
The Cobra Fly-Z family, including drivers, fairways, hybrids and irons, will be arriving soon at american golf, so keep checking back for updates on their release.
