Forum Thread of the Day: “What clubs in your bag are SAFE?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Millhill88 who like most WRXers, loves to tinker with his bag set-up. However, Millhill88 does have some clubs in his bag that he won’t be taking out before the end of the year, and he asks fellow members which clubs are currently safe and won’t be removed from their bags any time soon.

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

  • sbjinx: “Spider X. I’m putting so well with this thing I stopped checking the putter forum lol”
  • eddiebigeddie: “I have several that have been safe for some time. My putter Odyssey Metal X Milled Versa #9Ht has been my club since it came out. My F6 Baffler has been automatic since it came out too when I pull the club I know exactly what’s about to happen. And so far my F9 I got this year has been the driver for me. Finally not struggling to get off the tee.”
  • philly2kuk: “Pretty much all of them currently. Sure I’m off to try a Scotty today, but I’ve putted lights out with my anser, my vokeys are safe, driver is safe, hybrid is 14 years old yet still in the bag, five wood is safe. The only question mark is my irons as they’re coming up on six years in the bag. I’m wondering if I’m leaving something on the table.”
  • mwink822: “Most of my bag is safe but for wedges. I may be adding either Cleveland RTX4 wedges or Vokeys in the near future. Not that the Mizunos have been bad, but they’re getting to that point in their life where replacement may be wise.”
  • shanx: “I have had the same pair of wedges forever (TM RAC Raw tour grooves copper). I got them off the infamous BSG back in the day, don’t see any reason to change them, other than the grooves are probably illegal. Everything else is subject to change.”

    Nothing really that safe in my bag. I like to switch it up a lot and see what is working for me at the moment.

    Got some special P750s that were built in the early stages that say Proto on the badge instead of P750 they’re a gem that won’t be leaving the bag anytime soon.

    My putter is driving me nuts! Just replaced my Bettinardi QB6 with an Odyssey White Hot XG8 w/Rosemark 1.52 grip (put same grip on QB6). If that doesn’t work I have 6 more putters waiting for their chance to win some skins!

    SIK Jo putter. Got it from Kenny Knox 7 years ago. It’s gnarled and bumped and scratches all over it but it’s the ideal putter for me.

    My 712 AP2’s are safe forever. My Rife (Evenroll) putter is safe even longer. New Vokeys to replace old Vokeys. TM Driver, fairway and hybrids…not so much.

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.

Jason Dufner testing a new Cobra 3D printed putter at the 2021 API

Published

on

Ahead of this week’s 2021 Arnold Palmer Invitational, Jason Dufner has been spotted with a new Cobra 3D printed putter. The 43-year-old has been testing the flat-stick on Bay Hill’s grounds ahead of this week’s event, and our members have been discussing the putter in our forums.

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.

  • ChxDigLongBall: “Dig the name. Looks pretty good. I’d give it a roll. Interested to see what it feels like.”
  • 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. Would/will be a strange day in the future when you can get online, design your own one-off putter in the morning and have it at your door before your league tee time that afternoon.”
