Cobra releases limited edition King MIM wedges to close out the 2020 major season

Published

on

To celebrate the final major of 2020, Cobra is releasing a limited edition King MIM wedge inspired by the flowers found around a well-known golf course in Augusta Georgia.

The special edition wedges are manufactured using the same Metal Injection Molded (MIM) process as the standard MIM wedges as well as the new King Tour irons which were recently launched. It utilizes a multi-step process where the wedges are formed using 304 stainless steel powder and binding material, which is then sintered – the process of compacting and forming a solid mass of material by heat or pressure without melting it to the point of liquefaction, at over 1300°. This results in a tight molecular grain structure resulting in a soft feel.

The little details

The limited-edition wedges are finished using what Cobra is calling a vintage copper PVD, and then have paint-filled laser-etched flowers representing Azaleas, Golden Bells, and White Dogwoods, but this isn’t just a “wall hanger.”

The wedge showcases the popular VTG “versatile tour grind” inspired by Rickie Fowler. It has what would be considered a medium bounce profile with 10° measured along with aggressive heel and toe relief for shots hit from varying lies and turf conditions. The signature of the grind is the middle sole notch designed to keep the leading edge closer to the ground when the face is opened on tight lies.

The wedge, like all Cobra clubs, is integrated with Cobra Connect powered by Arccos to allow players to track their accuracy and short game improvements using the Arccos Caddie app and their smartphone or watch.

Price, specs, and availability

The wedge is available now at Cobragolf.com and is priced at $199. It is shafted with a KBS Hi-Rev 125 which features a custom yellow and green shaft band, and a Lamkin Crosslin connect grip in a green and yellow color scheme.

It will only be available in a 56-degree loft and in right-handed.

Details of Kevin Kisner’s putter switch

Published

on

GolfWRX caught up with Kevin Kisner ahead of the Travelers Championship to discuss a relatively new putter switch. While Kisner started the year using an Odyssey Exo Seven mallet putter, he switched to an Odyssey 2-ball 11 at the 2022 Charles Schwab Challenge.

“I switched to this putter a couple weeks ago, and it’s been pretty good,” Kisner said. “I haven’t made a ton but I roll it really nice.”

When I asked Kisner if he ever played a 2-ball back in the day, he answered, “Yeah man. That’s why I always like going back to this. I used to play with a Backstryke, too. I did it all.”

Apparently, Kisner isn’t afraid to experiment with all sorts of different Odyssey mallet putters. For now, though, he’s going with the Odyssey 2-ball 11.
