The old saying of what’s old is new again, seems to be taking shape in the world of golf, but in reality they are speaking of the naming convention more than the technology. Today Cobra is reintroducing their KING Oversized irons and this is one iconic iron that was due to come back.
The OS line from years ago was known as incredibly forgiving and the modern version is no different, as Cobra is calling it the brands largest Sweet Zone they have ever created. This is Cobra’s largest iron head and the profile is built to deliver an incredibly easy to hit club that is geared for distance, while providing fantastic forgiveness.
“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 center and off-center.”
The OS line was introduced over 20 years ago and in 1996 they were the best selling irons in golf.
The Tech Story
Featuring an all new PWRshell face technology, which helps to lower and center CG (Center 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.”
