Cobra King Black Wedge
With the launch of the first “Baffler”- the utility wood that has changed the performance concepts, it was clear that Cobra was aiming high, and throughout the years the company has made a name of itself that means status, recognition, advancement, and attitude in the golf industry. Based on innovations and excellence, Cobra has brought about many one-of-a-kind designs that have modified the expectations players have from their clubs. From game improvement graphite technology to introducing tungsten as the material that locates the centers of gravity in the clubs to the groundbreaking Cobra Connect Technology, they have managed to make the game of golf more versatile, more enjoyable and more satisfying. In the line of all the cutting edge clubs they have offered, the Cobra King Black Wedge is an outstanding addition to the King lineup which integrates a combination of sophisticated technology and improved construction in many segments.
Cobra Golf leaves no stone unturned when approaching a new concept, and this has been the guiding principle for making this wedge. As the competition was closely overshadowing their latest design, Cobra Golf had to think about going deeper into their possibilities and offer something unique and outstanding. And what they did was to offer the latest of their technology, nicely packed and customized in a wedge.
So, the Cobra King Black wedge comes as one of the company’s most versatile wedges with three sole grinds, increased face roughness obtained through their advanced technologies for grooving and milling, and outstanding, confidence-inspiring black finish. This is, in fact, the same finish that Rickie Fowler’s irons had when he was first played with them back in 2017. However, the finish comes with some subtle improvements that enhance the durability and the elegance of the finish.
The Cobra King Black Wedge is offered in two length options, the standard King Black, and the King Black One Lenght, the concept that was previously introduced and which has shown an incredible success among golfers who appreciate the benefits of playing with one-length clubs, something that we are going to discuss below. Among the innovations that were introduced in this model, it comes equipped with the popular Cobra Connect Technology that has also been earlier introduced with the F7 irons. This technology has been a winner in terms of performance tracking and together with Arccos, they bring the player’s performance at the display with just one click of the button.
There’s much more to talk about the Cobra King Black Wedge, so continue reading about the features it has and the performance it delivers.
Diamonized Black Metal (DBM) finish
Exceptionally durable black finish with extreme wear resistance, superior looks, and reduced glare
CNC Milled face delivers accurate grooves for consistent spin across the entire face
Versatile, Classic and Widelow sole grinds
Suitable for golfers of different skill levels
Progressive groove design with differently patterned grooves depending on the loft degree
True Temper Dynamic Gold Black Shaft
The clubhead is made from exceptionally soft but tough 8620 carbon steel which delivers an exceptional feel and spin. Plus, the heads and the grooves feature progressive design while the face is characterized with Variable Face Roughness so that its roughness is maximized up to the point to reach the USGA limit.
Progressive Groove Design
So, Progressive Spin Technology delivers a different groove pattern depending on the loft. This means that the higher lofted wedges, those from 56 degrees and onwards, feature wider and shallower grooves so that you get more spin and closer contact between the ball and the clubface as this design channels the dirt away. The lower-lofted wedges feature tighter and narrower grooves so that you’re able to execute shots with higher launching trajectories and more stopping power on the greens.
Since performance and preferences vary, Cobra offers three different sole grinds to match any golfer’s ability, style, and course condition and maximize the performance. So, Cobra considered three steps when creating the sole grinds, the turf conditions, the angle of approach and the swing type. This resulted in coming up with three sole grinds: the Widelow Grind, the Classic Grind, and the Versatile Grind.
The Widelow Grind is a versatile, all-around sole grind that is excellent for shots out of medium to soft turf conditions and bunkers. It is a combination of a low bounce and a wide sole that doesn’t let the leading edge dig into the turf. This helps golfers to keep their shots consistent which will lead to more spin and more consistent trajectories.
The Classic Grind features classic lofts, higher bounce and thinner sole deliver maximum performance from a wide range of turf conditions, such as medium, soft or firm. If you are a golfer who has a tendency to make shallow to medium divots then you need to consider this sole grind. This is the most versatile sole grind, and it is recommended to golfers who still haven’t determined any particular style.
The Versatile Grind features a softer leading edge, including softer heel, and toe relief. It is recommended for neutral or slider approach angle and medium to firm turf conditions.
The Cobra Connect Technology integrates sensors that are positioned on the top of the club and which records everything golfers do on the course. But, in order to be able to read all the stats and the data, you need the app on your smart devices, such as your smartphone or tablet.
This technology functions as a rangefinder, providing 40,000 courses worldwide where golfers can pinpoint exact distances that are delivered in meters and yards to any desired distance on the course. The sensors measure the swing speed, the distance they provide with detailed analysis of the overall performance and help golfers figure out their strengths and weaknesses and help them lower their scores.
