Published

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.

Callaway Golf launches new titanium Jailbreak-powered Super Hybrid

Published

on

Callaway Super Hybrid

Callaway Golf aims to redefine what a hybrid can be with the introduction of the all-new, multi-material, titanium-powered Callaway Super Hybrid for 2020. Built to offer the distance, ball speed and forgiveness of a fairway wood, with the added benefit of being built into a hybrid chassis, the Callaway Super Hybrid is the designed for those golfers that want control without sacrificing distance.

Creating a hybrid that performs like a fairway wood takes some serious engineering, and in the case of the new Callaway Super Hybrid, it means pulling out all the stops with technology and packing it all into one finely tuned club.

Here’s everything the R&D team at Callaway has been able to accomplish with this hybrid design

2020 Callaway Super Hybrid: Details

High-Strength Titanium Face insert

The Titanium face insert of the Super Hybrid promotes greater ball speeds and ball speed consistency thanks to variable face thickness, according to the company. Adding in Callaway’s proven Jailbreak technology helps stiffen the total structure of the clubhead’s titanium body. This places, as Callaway says, more impact load on the Face Insert to push the limits of flex and ball speed retention.

Light Weight Carbon Crown

An all-new T2C Triaxial Carbon Crown has a tighter weave than other composite crowns used in the past which increases strength and saves weight versus a traditional hybrid’s steel crown. The weight savings are then redistributed within the head to lower the Center of Gravity, and raise MOI for consistent distance on mishits.

Full Titanium Body With Precise Tungsten Weighting

Using a titanium body (the crown not withstanding) allows Callaway engineers to place a large volume of tungsten into the heel and toe of each clubs to once again increased MOI and optimized ball flight.

Using the same Metal Injection Molded Tungsten Weighting technology seen in other Callaway clubs, including the Epic Star line, Callaway is able to place a very high volume Metal Injection Molded (MIM’ed) tungsten weight to optimize CG for launch and control. How much tungsten you might ask? 68 grams per head—that’s close to 30 percent of the average hybrid’s total head mass!

Tech Specs and Options

The Callaway Super Hybrid will be available in three loft options, all three of which will also be available in left-handed. The stock shaft is the popular Mitsubishi Chemical Tensei CK PRO Orange 80 Hybrid shaft, but like anything Callaway, it will also include a large amount of no-upcharge options for custom orders.

Callaway Super Hybrid Pricing and Availability

The Callaway Super Hybrid is now available for preorder with retail stock hitting shelves on November 1st.

MSRP: $319.99
