thegear COBRA KING WEDGES THE Available April 15; RRP: $199 each; COBRAGOLF.COM.AU I MPROVED feel and performance on the shots that really count is the promise from Cobra Golf with the release next week of its vaunted new King wedges. In addition to a new muscle shape, the King wedge collection utilises progressive grooves, variable face roughness and three sole grind configurations to provide golfers with superior feel, increased spin consistency and personalisation for different swing types. One of the most important attributes of a wedge is feel and Cobra engineers used modal analysis to help tune vibrational frequencies (or shape) to deliver a soft feeling wedge. The King wedges are designed and manufactured using new Progressive Milled Grooves, which feature wider grooves and gapping on higher lofted wedges and traditional groove spacing on lower lofted wedges. The wider groove design allows higher lofted wedges (56° to 60°) to grab the golf ball, imparting increased spin and making spin more consistent throughout the wedge set. The new grooves are combined with Variable Face Roughness, a face-milling technology that maximises both average roughness and maximum peak-to- peak depth to the R&A and USGA limit. The three sole grind configurations have been combined with the iconic Cobra Notch, which provides golfers with the ability to choose the perfect wedge to match their game and turf conditions. Each unique sole grind has its own set of advantages: the Versatile sole features a medium bounce (8° to 10°) to provide overall versatility on medium to firm turf conditions; the Classic configuration has a high sole bounce (11° to 12°) and a narrow sole for ease of use on all turf conditions; and the WideLow option has a low bounce (4° to 7°) with a wide sole that works well on medium to soft turf conditions. King wedges feature a new, durable Satin Nickel Chrome plating finish that helps diffuse light and prevent glare, along with True Temper Dynamic Gold S200 (stiff) shafts and Lamkin UTX grips. E
