Spotted: True Temper Dynamic Gold AMT shafts

Published

on

True Temper’s Dynamic Gold AMT shafts are designed with what the company is calling “ascending mass technology,” creating a set of iron shafts that gets progressively heavier as golfers move from their long irons to wedges.

The 3-iron shaft is the lightest in the set, and each subsequent shaft gets three grams heavier as the set progresses. That results in wedge shafts that weigh between 125 and 130 grams, depending on flex, which is the standard weight of True Temper’s most popular Dynamic Gold iron shafts: R300, S300 and X100.

[quote_box_center]What we found, particularly in the longer irons, is that they launched a little higher just by virtue of the increased speed [from lighter weight],” said Chad Hall, True Temper’s Vice President of Global Sales. “That’s true for most players. From a wedge perspective, you’re talking about the same exact performance.” [/quote_box_center]

The AMT shafts use the company’s variable wall technology (VWT), which allows engineers to manipulate the wall thicknesses throughout the entirety of a shaft to reach the desired weight. They still maintain what Hall called the “Dynamic Gold DNA,” however, meaning that they offer a very similar balance point and trajectory as the original models.

Hall expects the new shafts to be popular with better golfers, including tour players, as well as golfers who felt the Dynamic Gold shafts were too heavy for them to be effective in their long and mid irons.

The Dynamic Gold AMT is a tour-only product at this point with no immediate plans for release. Golfers should expect to see them in stores in 2016, Hall said.

    i just think they have too many S200 and dynalite shafts they need to get rid of.

    What’s the difference in these and the “DG PRO” ..”Progressive” ..starts at 125g in the wedge and drops 3 grams per club to the 3 iron at around 100ish..kick point gets progressively lower from wedge to long iron .. Or is the white label Tour issue also descends in weight but maintains the same kick ??

      The DG Pro is really like the flighted PX shafts, where as the weight is pretty close, but the flight is not. These don’t mention anything about flight, but the assumption is it would be similar as a lighter shaft in the longer irons may produce higher shots.

      If they put the PRO and AMT in a room together with some Barry White, you might have the ultimate shaft; progressive weighting getting heavier for the shorter clubs and having higher launching long irons with more piercing short irons.

    Its a tour shaft only…… so why should we give a flying F!

    So basically this is the same idea as the Ping AWT shafts from a couple years back

    So would I be correct on assuming these are parallel tip?

      No, they would be tapered so as to fit OEM iron heads

    I rather go and get MOI fitted by a professinal club maker/fitter. But who am I to judge!? Golf and feeling is highly individual, TT DG AMT might be a great success…. 🙂

    It basically pretends to be an MOI-matched built set of irons.

    Like Black Gold ?

    So am I wrong in thinking that these are a kinda flighted lighter DG, like an ascending weighted Tour Concept?

    This shaft sounds like a comeback of the True Temper Tri-Gold shaft from the 1990’s. That shaft had ascending weight and progressive bend point. It was a very good shaft but never really caught on.

Cobra releasing new Copper Series irons and RF Forged MB

Published

on

If you loved the look of the Cobra limited edition RF Proto Rev33 irons but were looking for an iron more forgiving to your golf game—or more friendly on your wallet—you’re in luck. The new Copper Series features some of the most popular irons in the company’s lineup, along with a new version of the King RF blades in a stunning copper finish.

King RF Forged MB Copper

The new Cobra RF MB blades share all the same features as the limited edition Rev33, except for the one key difference being the new RF MB’s are forged to final shape through a precise five-time forging process with the face and grooves being CNC milled—versus the Rev33 irons being 100 percent CNC milled to spec.

This change in the process produces an equally precise iron but at a friendlier price compared to the limited edition set.

Just like Rickie’s gamers, the RF MBs have a tungsten weight positioned in the toe to locate the CG directly behind the middle of the iron’s face to enhance stability and feel.

The King RF Forged MB irons will be available in right-handed only and come 4-iron through pitching wedge with KBS C-Taper 120 steel shafts, along with Lamkin Crossline Connect grips in the stock configuration. They are priced at $1,399.

King Tour & Forged Tec Copper irons

For the golfer looking for a compact cavity back, Cobra is also offering the recently released King Tour irons produced using MIM in copper.  Here’s a refresher on Metal Injection Molding:

It’s a process using a mixture of 304 stainless steel metal powder, which is heated and injected into a mold. Using a sintering process, the metal is heated to a higher temperature than forging (1340°C vs. 1200°C), which provides a smoother grain flow structure versus forged and cast to maximize soft feel.

Much like the RF MB, the multi-material King Tour irons have a tungsten weight inserted into the toe section to precisely locate the CG to the middle of the face.

The King Tour irons will be available in right and left-handed and come 4-iron through pitching wedge with KBS $-Taper 120 steel shafts, along with Lamkin Crossline Connect grips in the stock configuration. A 3-iron and gap wedge are also available through custom orders. They are priced at $1,399. 

(The King Tour irons will continue to be available in the standard chrome finish in right and left-handed)

Now, for those golfers who put a premium on distance, Cobra is also offering the King Forged Tec in copper with all the same technology you know and love from this compact hollow design.

The hollow iron heads are filled with foam microspheres to produce a soft and solid feel at impact and the face features what Cobra calls a forged PWRSHELL insert to maximizes ball speed and launch across the entire face.

The King Forged Tec irons will be available in right and left-handed (variable length only) and come 4-iron through pitching wedge, with a 3-iron and gap wedge available through custom orders. The stock configurations include KBS $-Taper lite in steel and Project X Catalyst 80 (x and s flex) and 60 in R-flex along with Lamkin Crossline Connect grips. The irons are priced at $1,199.  

(The chrome version of the irons will continue to be available in right and left-handed, in both variable and One Length, right and left-handed)

Final details

All three of the copper iron sets will be available at retail and through cobragolf.com starting March 12.

They will also include Cobra Connect powered by Arccos and come with a free 90-day trial of Arccos Caddie.

  • av1084: “Weird all around, in a good way.”
  • KAndyMan: “Can’t wait to see what the putter line up will consist of! Definitely a cool idea using 3d printing. The possibilities are endless with it.
