Cobra King MIM Wedges coming to retail April 12



Cobra announced today its King MIM Wedges (which we got an in-hand look at during the PGA Show) are coming to retail April 12.

According to the company, the wedges are the first to feature a fully Metal-Injection-Molded (MIM) 304 stainless steel head.

“At COBRA Golf, we work to create new products that offer a tangible benefit to our consumers. Our innovative manufacturing processes work to reduce variables, helping golfers have a more consistent, improved game,” said Tom Olsavsky, Vice President of R&D for COBRA Golf. “The KING MIM Wedges are astonishingly soft and precise, to give golfers the best performance in their short games.”

Cobra touts the benefits of MIM manufacturing in reducing post-process polishing and reduction of hand grinding. Indeed, it’s a pre-programmed robot’s “hand” that polishes each wedge, which the company says reduces variance in head weight, thickness, and bounce.

304 stainless steel powder is heated to 2,444 degrees Fahrenheit (a higher temperature than traditional forging), producing “a more even grain structure than forged and cast wedges and the softest feel the industry’s ever seen,” according to Cobra.

  • Available lofts: 50, 52, 54, 56, 58 and 60 degrees lofts, all with Versatile Grind
  • A black Golf Pride Tour Velvet CONNECT, KBS Hi-Rev 2.0 (125g) shaft are standard
  • Available April 12, 2019
  • MAP price: $149 per wedge.

    New manufacturing process, same old club design. Cobra innovates in their woods but still pushes the same old iron and wedge designs for the last 4-5 iterations…

      Why change what works? Vokey changes too frequently and calls the wedge the same as last year – when it isn’t. It’s one reason I switched when they started changing the shape, but calling it the same as the old model.

      I’ll be trying these MIM wedges.

    As an engineer who loves golf, I’ve often wondered why the benefits of MIM were never leveraged in a golf club. Probs to Cobra for pulling it off. I’m guessing the big guys either couldn’t figure it out or didn’t want to risk explaining MIM to everyone. Very excited to try these.

      What’s the difference between mim and casting? Seems similar

        It appears that MIM is a powder based metal that is injected into a tool. Investment casting is a lost wax process where the liquid metal is poured into a cavity and the wax burns out. MIM is a much more accurate and less wasteful process. No gates to grind off with MIM, less polishing. Better the process, better the club in my opinion.

Member jeffbang62 – PXG 0811X Proto driver

In the case of the new prototype PXG driver, fewer weights actually means more adjustability. So if you are looking to do some adjusting to your long game, this could be your new weapon off the tee.

In the age of social media, the phrase “now that’s something you don’t see every day” has, in some ways, lost a bit of its meaning, but in the case of this putter, it applies.

Srixon has introduced the second generation of its Soft Feel Brite golf balls which arrive in highly visible orange, green and red color codes.

What irons do you play? – GolfWRXers discuss



In our forums, our members have been discussing the irons that they currently play. WRXer ‘Vater’ asks members which brand they have in the bag and why, and you can see the results so far after 189 survey participants.

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.

  • Vater: “I use Titleist 718 AP1s because they cost less new than some used clubs, haha. In all seriousness, I love the quality overall, and specifically, I was looking for a set with a good GW – and most of all, I wanted to play a 4 iron again, and the 4 and 5 irons in the 718 AP1s are beastly.”
  • aadadams: “I use Taylormade Speedblades for about the last 6 years, they still work great for my game, and I don’t see a change in the near future.”
  • Celebros: “Cobra Forged Tour.”
  • jholz: “I am Cleveland, but towards the latter end of the glory days – CG7 Tours. About as good a club as money can buy. Wish I could find some CG7 Tour Concepts!”
  • gripandrip: “Srixon 745’s. Most likely may be looking to the ZX7 as a possible replacement. Love my Srixon irons.”
