Cobra to launch new King OS hybrids

Published

on

Cobra’s King OS irons of 2016 were a noteworthy super game-improvement release for high-handicap golfers who wanted large sweet-spots for the ultimate in distance and forgiveness. Now, there’s a oversize hybrids — which borrow technologies from other Cobra products — to complement the King OS irons, and to provide golfers with an ultra-forgiving hybrid option.

The oversized hybrids are designed with wider and larger club heads to inspire confidence in golfers who don’t always hit the center of the face, and their sizes and shapes will also help create higher launch and more forgiveness. But more importantly than their sizes are the attention Cobra gave to the weighting throughout their heads.

According to Tom Olsavsky, Vice President of R&D for Cobra, the key to creating more distance in these hybrids was to lower center of gravity (CG) and decrease spin. This might sound a bit like the goal of Cobra’s LTD driver, which was touted with “Zero CG.” So it makes sense why Cobra also added its “TexTreme” carbon fiber crowns into the King OS hybrids, which ultimately saved 8 grams from the crowns (compared to all-steel heads) that was placed lower in the club heads. According to Cobra, there is also an internal Tungsten weighting system that further lowers center of gravity.

Also, like its King OS and King F7 irons, Cobra’s King OS hybrids use the company’s familiar “PWRSHELL” technology, which means the faces are designed to flex more at impact to create more ball speed across the face and a higher launch. By design, the King OS hybrids should therefore help inconsistent golfers get the ball airborne and hit the ball farther on a more consistent basis.

For fine-tuning trajectory, the King OS hybrids have Cobra’s MyFly8 adjustable hosels, and the club heads are available in 3-4 (19-22 degrees), 4-5 (22-25 degrees) and 5-6 (25-28 degrees). They will come stock with black Lamkin Crossline grips, UST Mamiya Recoil 460 ES graphite shafts (Lite, Regular, Stiff and X-Stiff) and will sell for $249 starting on July 8.

As part of combination sets, they will sell for $1099 (King OS steel irons, King OS graphite hybrids; 3-4H, 4-5H, 6-PW, GW) or $1,199 (all graphite King OS irons and hybrids; 3-4H, 4-5H, 6-PW, GW).
