Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 161
AVAILABLE OCTOBER 15.; RRP: $649; cobragolf.com KINGRETURNS COBRA PUMA GOLF KING LTD & KING LTD PRO DRIVERS C OBRA Puma Golf has announced the return of KING to the product line with the launch of the new KING LTD Driver. Fuelled by research in space, the KING LTD features a ‘SpacePort’ design that allowed the company’s R&D team to strategically position the centre of gravity (CG) and make Cobra Golf’s key internal speed and stability technologies visible for the first time. Last September, Cobra Golf teamed up with the Centre for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) and Nanoracks LLC, on a materials science research investigation that launched on board SpaceX CRS-4 and was on the International Space Station for six weeks. Taking design inspiration from the Space Station’s cupola module – an earth and space observation platform – the KING LTD driver features a SpacePort window that is incorporated into the sole of the driver. This unique structural design feature is locked in place by the use of ‘Spiralock’ thread technology, which is designed to withstand high vibrations and loads during impact without over tightening or loosening. The result is a sleek aerodynamic exterior. The SpacePort system consists of a 16-gram Aerospace grade Aluminum dual-purpose weight and translucent port system that allows golfers to view the internal driver technologies. By removing the port, golfers can visually access all the hidden Cobra technologies – the 811 titanium E9 face, low CG hosel, and ‘Textreme’ carbon fibre crown. In total, there are more than 28 grams of discretionary weight positioned in and around the port perimeter positioning the CG low and to the back of the clubhead. The Port also removes the necessity for hot melt glue, a sticky substance typically used in drivers to catch internal debris and achieve final clubhead weight, saving an additional four grams. Instead, a more efficient solid structured and more precise weight is placed into the head, behind the SpacePort. The Port also allows final swingweight tuning, with a 0 to 12-gram tungsten weight, at the time of building to precisely fit the golfer. OTG the GEAR SPECS >
