Golfers love options, especially when it comes to the finish of the clubs which they are spending their hard-earned money on, after all, you should be able to enjoy what you are looking down at, right? This year, when it comes to aesthetics, Cobra Golf is embracing the saying “less is more”. While the accents and finish on their LTDx drivers and KING Cobra wedges have garnered a lot of positive feedback, it still seems as though practically everyone loves a dark finish.
Let’s start with driver. If aren’t familiar with the new LTDx lineup from Cobra, you can check out the most detailed technology and design rundown anywhere here. This new LTDx Black driver release has all of those same bells and whistles, but in a matte black crown and sole with deep grey accent stripes as opposed to the gold/orange of the regular release. Even more exciting news than another finish option to go with the two standard ones, is that it will be available in all three heads, the LTDx, LTDx LS, and LTDx MAX. Bringing the whole thing together will be a new premium aftermarket UST LIN-Q White shaft and blacked out Lamkin grip.
But wait, there’s more. SNAKEBITE is going dark as well, with the company now offering the KING Cobra Black Wedge. These are endowed with a satin black QPQ finish which should both reduce glare and offer ample durability. Beyond the finish, these are the same wedges which offer some of the most aggressive and sharp grooves on the entire market, not to mention standard groove length in the low lofts, and full-face in the high. All three grinds will be available in standard and ONE Length as well as the same loft options as the chrome finish. The Black wedges are paired with KBS Hi-Rev 2.0 shafts and Lamkin Crossline grips.
Both the LTDx Black driver and wedges will be available at retail and through online stores on 3/18/22. Price points will be $599 for the big-stick (driver), and $149 for the short game weapons (wedges). What are your thoughts on this expansion offering from Cobra?
