Odyssey introduces new Tri-Hot 5K, Eleven, Toulon, White Hot OG putters

Published

on

Odyssey has today introduced its new Tri-Hot 5K, Eleven, and Toulon Putters, along with new versions of their major-winning White Hot OG lineup.

Tri-Hot 5K

The Tri-Hot 5k putter is engineered to improve performance by reducing the amount of side spin on off center hits.

The putter is constructed of a 303 stainless steel front section that includes the hosel and face area. This material has been finish milled to exact shape and weight, helping to keep the CG forward, which is designed to keep putts closer to the original line, with tighter dispersion.

Odyssey has positioned over 120 grams of tungsten behind the face in the toe and heel sections of the club head while moving the CG forward for improved roll while also increasing inertia to over 5,000 IZZ for maximum forgiveness.

The Tri-Hot 5k contains a White Hot Insert and is available in aluminum, steel and tungsten with interchangeable front weights allowing players to dial in the head weight to their exact preference. 

The putter contains a Red Stroke Lab shaft which is the newest generation of the company’s Stroke Lab shaft. By shortening the steel section, Odyssey reduced the weight by seven grams compared to the original Stroke Lab while also making it stiffer and more stable in design for greater consistency.

Pricing: $399.99

Eleven

The latest mallet putter from Odyssey features a new Eleven shape that is designed to help players frame the ball with the right alignment at address and contains a high MOI for improved accuracy.

Using a multi-material design, engineers moved the CG forward nearly a quarter of an inch over other leading mallets while increasing inertia substantially. This is designed to create improved performance, speed control, spin control, speed consistency on off-center hits, and a much tighter downrange dispersion for putts that stay on line.

The Eleven putter contains a super lightweight White Hot TPU Sole Insert that improves the sound and feel and features a crowned design that allowed Odyssey to finish the shape and provide a blank canvas for various alignment aides. Plain, lined, or Triple Track versions are available, and the putters also contain the brand’s new Red Stroke Lab shaft.

Pricing: $299.99

Toulon

The Toulon putter family features a deep diamond groove mill pattern that is designed to control sound and feel by channeling vibration. The face also features a medium depth double fly cut aimed at enhancing forward roll and feel. 

The putters contain a new two split-weight design that moves the weights forward and toward the toe and heel. The positioning improves the inertia of the head while also improving the consistency of impact ratio and forward roll. The weights are available in a variety of offerings – from 5 grams to 20 grams each – in 5-gram increments. 

The Toulon family features Stroke Lab weighting for improved tempo and consistency and comes in a Midnight Black finish.

Pricing: $449.99

Odyssey White Hot OG

Featuring the iconic two-part urethane insert technology, the Odyssey White Hot OG arrives with a rich silver PVD finish with fine milling on key surfaces.

The new additions are available in a premium stepped steel shaft or multi-material Stroke Lab shaft in a red colorway and include the 7 Bird, 7 Nano, 7 CH, and Double Wide

The White Hot OG women’s putters come with shaft options in shorter lengths of 32 inches and 33 inches.

Pricing: $229.99 – Steel, $269.99 – Stroke Lab

All new putters arrive at retail on February 4, 2022.

Cobra unveils new LTDx family of drivers, fairways, and hybrids

Published

on

Cobra Golf has today introduced its new family of LTDx drivers, fairways and hybrids, which will all arrive at retail on February 11.

The new metalwoods from Cobra build on the legacy of the LTD series that began in 2016 with the company’s introduction of the first driver to achieve zero CGna for low spin and fast ball speed performance. For 2022, the new LTDx sees the combination of that zero CGna and 5200 MOI in design to create faster ball speeds with extreme forgiveness.

“The LTDx driver lineup reflects our team’s continued dedication to innovation and improved performance. With the introduction of PWR-COR and H.O.T Face technology, our engineers have, yet again, developed innovation that improves CG and MOI while making the face hotter and more forgiving. 

“The resulting LTDx family of drivers are the best we have ever produced, and the three distinct driver models ensure that every golfer can achieve optimized performance for their game. We look forward to seeing the LTDx on Tour and also in the hands of amateurs and weekend warriors at courses globally.” – Tom Olsavsky, Vice President of R&D, Cobra Golf

Cobra LTDx LS Driver

The new LTDx LS driver positions most of its weight low and forward to deliver low spin and faster ball speeds, combined with a workable ball flight desired by skilled players with faster swing speeds.

An adjustable weight system features a 10g and 3g weight that can be exchanged to either the front heel or toe to fine-tune trajectory. A 460cc shape features an aerodynamic design designed to aid players with faster swing speeds to maximize their clubhead speed.

The brand’s PWR-COR Technology positions as much weight low and forward using a 14g internal MIM steel weight and a 5g 100 percent milled, stainless steel external weight (19g total) to help lower spin and increase speed, while 13g of moveable weights places a 32g low and forward.

The driver also includes H.O.T. Face technology that is derived from machine learning, which creates 15 unique zones in a bid to maximize and tune ball speeds both away from and in the center of the face. This technology is designed to significantly improve performance in those common “miss” areas.

In addition, the overall design and performance attributes of the new LTDx are further improved by a proprietary Multi-Material Construction that utilizes a redesigned, 8g lighter titanium chassis that allows for up to 30% more carbon fiber and more discretionary weight to reposition low and forward in the PWR-COR weight.

 

Price: $499.99

Cobra LTDx Max driver

The LTDx Max driver combines stability with draw-bias into one driver, both individually achievable using the moveable weight system.

The new addition features a slightly oversized 460cc profile to help provide excellent distance and forgiveness with a back weight setting and an added weight positioned in the heel that affords golfers additional draw-bias to help square the face for more accurate results.

The 10g heavy weight can be positioned in the back to deliver the maximum amount of forgiveness that Cobra has to offer, while players can also position the heavy weight in the heel for 11 yards of draw bias. The adjustable hosel can be adjusted to the “Draw” setting for an additional 7 yards (18 yards total).

In addition, the LTDx Max features PWR-COR and H.O.T. Face Technology with a Multi-Material Construction.

 

Price: $499.99

Cobra LTDx driver

Described by the company as a driver “unicorn”, the LTDx driver is the very first to combine zero CGna and a high MOI at 5200.

The driver features a slightly oversized 460cc clubhead that is constructed with the balance of internal weighting in design to deliver the fastest ball speeds with slow spin and maximum distance.

The construction utilizes 19g total weight positioned in PWR-COR (14g internal MIM steel weight & 5g external CNC Milled stainless steel weight) and 15g total in the back using 5g of tungsten and a 10g fixed back weight.

As with all models in the new family of drivers, the LTDx features the company’s H.O.T. Face Technology and a Multi-Material Construction, affording optimal CG and MOI in a bid to offer increased distance and improved performance.

Price: $499.99

Complementing the line of LTDx drivers are a full lineup of LTDx fairway metals ($299 each) and LTDx hybrids ($249 each).

Cobra LTDx LS fairway

Cobra’s low spin fairway features progressive shaping – Big Tour shape in 3w with no rails and Tour Shape in 5w with hollow split rails.

PWR-COR utilizes tungsten and aluminum to position as much weight low and forward in design to increase ball speed, while H.O.T. Face Technology uses 15 zones with optimized thicknesses in a bid to maximize speed across the face.

An adjustable weighting system features a 12g and a 3g weight that can be positioned in the heel or toe to fine-tune trajectory and spin.

Cobra LTDx fairway

The Cobra LTDx fairway arrives in a traditional shape in a 3w with no rails and a traditional shape 5w and 7w with hollow split rails that are designed to aid in turf interaction for steeper swings.

A 12g fixed weight is positioned in the back of the fairway wood in a bid to provide forgiveness and high launch, while the PWR-COR weight low and forward is designed to create an excellent balance of low spin and fast ball speed combined with forgiveness.

Cobra LTDx Max fairway

The Cobra LTDx is billed as the company’s “most forgiving fairway” that combines “the fast and forgiving performance of the LTDx with additional draw bias for those that need slice correcting power.”

An adjustable weight system features 12g and 3g weights that can be positioned in the back or the heel to fine-tune the amount of draw bias, while WR-COR and H.O.T. Face Technology again bids to deliver the fastest ball speed possible using low and forward weighting and an optimized variable thickness face design.

Cobra LTDx hybrids

The LTDx hybrids are Cobra’s first to feature PwrShell Technology, which utilizes an L-cup face design that is forged from a thin and strong stainless steel to generate up to 17% more flex in design for faster ball speed and higher launch across the face.

 

The hybrids contain the brand’s PWR-COR and H.O.T. Face technologies while also featuring Hollow Split Rails that aim to improve turf interaction and allow the club to glide out of the fairway, tight lies, thick rough and even bunkers.

The hybrids are available in both standard (Satin Black/Gold Fusion colorway) and One Length (Blue/Red & Black)models, with the LTDx One Length hybrid designed in a shorter set up (37.25”) that complements the One Length irons.

Specs: 

Men: LTDx hybrid: 2H (17 degrees), 3H (19 degrees), 4H (21 degrees) 5H (24 degrees) and 6H (28 degrees); One length model: 3H (19 degrees), 4H (21 degrees), 5H (24 degrees)

Women: 4H (20 degrees), 5H (23 degrees) 6H (27 degrees), 7H (30 degrees)

Cobra launches all-new King LTDx irons

Published

on

Cobra Golf has today unveiled its new King LTDx irons that will hit retail on February 11th.

The irons have been re-engineered from the inside out using a PWR-COR Weighting design that strategically positions the CG and adds face and body flexion in design to deliver maximum ball speed.

Combined with a thinner and larger PwrShell Face, the LTDx irons seek to provide players with an iron that blends forgiveness, high launch, excellent feel and longest total distance.

PWR-COR Weighting

The PWR-COR Weighting system features a multi-material design utilizing a floating steel core bar that is suspended in a lightweight and soft polymer. The steel core bar positions the CG low and right behind the impact zone.

In the center of the head area, the core bar is completely separated from the body, face, and sole to encourage maximum flexion and power transfer to the golf ball.

 

A polymer filler is injected around the core bar to damp vibrations in design to provide excellent feel while enhancing the elastic rebound effect for increased ball speed and distance.

PwrShell Face Technology

For their latest irons, Cobra has expanded its patented PwrShell Face Technology.

The updated PwrShell design utilizes a variable thickness L-cup insert that expands the thin area on the face by 23% to increase the zone of maximum ball speed in design to create more consistent and reliable distance on off-center hits.

Combined with the PWR-COR weight design, per Cobra, the LTDx irons deliver 5% more face deflection than the previous RadSpeed models, resulting in faster ball speed and higher launch across the face.

LTDx Irons are available in both Variable and One Length offerings, with a new adjustable toe-screw allowing Cobra’s custom club department to build for any configuration.

Specs 

Cobra LTDx irons 

The LTDx irons arrive in a Chrome finish with Gold Fusion accents and come stock in 5-GW (RH/LH; Steel – $899) or 4-PW (RH; Steel – $899), as well as a graphite combo set 5H, 6-GW (RH/LH; $1099) set makeups. 

Each steel option comes standard with a KBS Tour 90shaft and a Lamkin Crossline (58+) Black grip. The stock graphite offering utilizes a KBS PGI (85 – Stiff flex; 75 – Regular flex; 65 – Lite flex, and a 55 in women’s flex).

Women’s LTDx iron offerings: The LTDx irons are available in ladies flex in a Chrome/Elderberry colorway with a KBS PGI 55 (50g) shaft and Lamkin Crossline Undersize (60R) grip. A combo set is also available in 5H, 6H, 7-PW, SW (RH).

Titleist introduces next-generation AVX golf ball

Published

on

Titleist has today launched the third generation of its AVX golf ball, which hits retail on February 4th.

The original AVX was engineered by Titleist in 2018 as a performance alternative to its flagship Pro V1 and Pro V1x by offering the lowest flight, lowest spin and softest feel of the three premium offerings. The next-gen version features updated technology for players who prioritize distance and soft feel in a urethane covered golf ball.

On the new addition, Frederick Waddell, Director of Golf Ball Product Management, Titleist, said

“With new AVX, we focused on what AVX golfers are asking for: improving upon the already incredible distance and feel that golfers love, while enhancing greenside spin. We achieved this by softening the urethane cover to achieve greater short game performance, while adding a new core formulation for speed, and new aerodynamics for flight stability and more distance.”

The 2022 AVX ball features a new reformulated core designed to generate high speed and low long game spin to drive more distance with an excellent soft feel.

The reformulated core increases stiffness of the outermost portions of the core while keeping the center of the core soft. This combination aims to decrease driver and long game spin, while a high flex casing layer is designed to promote high ball speed and low spin on long shots for enhanced distance.

A new softer cover increases the soft (urethane cover) over hard (high flex casing) differential, which contributes to improved short game and greenside spin, while a new 348 tetrahedral catenary aerodynamic dimple pattern aims to provide a piercing low trajectory ball flight.

The new AVX is offered in both white and high optic yellow and will be available in golf shops worldwide beginning February 4, 2022, and costs $49.99 per dozen.
