Cobra’s new Fly Z+ Forged irons, the apparent successor to Cobra’s Bio Cell+ irons, were spotted at the 2014 Hero World Challenge in Rickie Fowler’s bag by way of his 3-iron.

The Fly-Z+ Forged irons are part of the new Fly-Z line from Cobra, which includes drivers, fairway woods, hybrids and irons. Fowler also made the switch to Cobra’s new Fly-Z+ driver and fairway woods.

The stock Fly-Z+ drivers have a 15-gram sliding weight in their FlipZone, which moves the center of gravity either forward or rearward depending on a golfers’ preference. Fowler looks to have a lighter, 10-gram weight in his 9-degree driver based on the stampings.

    Let’s hope they feel better than the bio cell+ irons, which were not forged and were the harshest feeling irons I have ever hit.

    Puma should just shut Cobra’s doors. No innovation there at all, any more, except for fancy colors.

      Cobra should just shut their doors? Because YOU say so? Somehow, you’re expecting some massive innovation from Cobra but not the other equipment companies. Innovation in golf in 2014 is in extremely tiny increments.
      I’ve heard that the new driver is easy to hit and LONG. The Amp Cell Pro was an incredible driver that added distance and accuracy to my game. If the G30 wasn’t slightly longer, it would still be in my bag.
      Before making statements like “they should shut their doors, no innovation at all”…maybe you might actually try the product?

      You have to have something better to do than troll a golf site. At least go down and pick up your unemployment check or food stamps.

    Amp Pro Forged are in my bag, and after seeing the 3 iron, they’ll still be in my bag.

      Bear in mind there are also the fly-z pro forged coming out which are the successor to your amp pros.

        Much love for the Amp Forged Pro. Will be hard to depart from them. I was suspect about Cobra as I too wouldn’t look very cool in a flat brimmed cap (I’m 44). However, these irons are the most solid I’ve hit. I’ll play them until Pelz can’t make a sound with his thumb nail on the 3 iron.

Indi Golf introduces two new putter designs featuring the brand’s Colossal Sweet Spot Technology

Published

Indi Golf Alisson Black Matte

Indi Golf has unveiled two new putter designs in two different finishes named Allison and Ramone.

The Allison and Ramone flatsticks come in both black and chrome finishes and contains the brand’s Colossal Sweet Spot Technology which, according to the company, eliminates miss-hits no matter where the ball is struck on the face.

Speaking on the new additions, Rob Lang, General Manager, Indi Golf, stated

“After designing wedges for the past few years, the putter category was the most logical next step for us in our mission to help golfers make their short game their best game.

“We’ve been developing the technology for these putters for over a year now and we’re confident they will help golfers make more putts. We’re excited to finally introduce them.”

The Allison putter is a face-balanced mid-size mallet, which features a double-bend shaft which aims at creating a perfectly face-balanced putter for the player that uses a straight back, straight through putting stroke.

The Ramone, a toe-hang blade putter, features a 30-degree toe-hang, which is aimed towards the player that favors an arced putting stroke.

As well as the Colossal Sweet Spot Technology, both of the new additions from Indi Golf are precision CNC milled and are constructed from Aircraft Grade Aluminum. The flat-sticks also contain toe and heel tungsten weighting, designed for increased stroke stability and maximum feel for ultimate consistency.

Forum Thread of the Day: “How often to replace your wedges?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from cookszn who asks WRXers how often do they change their wedges. Cookszn also asks the same question focusing on those who don’t have the fortune to be able to play the game in winter months, and our members have been sharing their thoughts, with many following a variety of different philosophies.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • MattyO1984: “Lob Wedge, every year to 18 months. Sand and Gap, every 24-36 months.”
  • dlygrisse: “Every 2-3 years. For me, it’s more of a visual check, if the chrome is wearing off and the grooves are getting a bit dodgy. I play about 10 months a year on average. For me, though, it really depends on how much you practice. If you are just playing golf 20-40 times a year or so you really won’t get much wear. But if you practice bunker shots and work on your short game on a weekly basis, then you may need new wedges every season.”
  • Oz Max: “I’ve had my set for 5 years now, and they still spin a lot, enough to zip back a few meters on a pitch shot (when I make a good contact that is!). Though I loom after them, clean the grooves regularly and use one of those regrooving tools, they are perfect to keep the edges sharp every so often.”
  • Zigzog: “I am using some Cleveland 588 Tour Action at the moment, at least 15 years old – they still spin plenty for me. New wedges will give more initial bite, but this will stop after a handful of rounds IMO – so for me, I am more comfortable with what I know.”
  • RichieHunt: “About once every 12-15 months.”
  • Roody: “I play about 100 rounds a season. I just replaced my 60-degree wedge last week. The previous one was 5 years old. I have a groove sharpener that I use on the wedges once or twice a season. Seems to keep them “good enough” for my needs.”
