Cobra has unveiled its latest wedges, the King Black and King Black One Length, featuring a highly durable Dimonized Black Metal (DBM) finish.
Constructed from 8620 Carbon Steel the DBM finish, the same finish used on Rickie Fowler’s Tour irons, was developed at the Cobra forging foundry’s in is distinct black satin look that diffuses light. Cobra say it last longer than any other black finish resulting in longer-lasting, better looking wedges that have a confidence-inspiring appearance at address.
The grooves in the King Black wedges are manufactured with Cobra’s patented CNC milling process that ensure each groove delivers an accurate and highly-consistent spin performance.
The heads also incorporate Progressive Spin Technology that tailors spin performance to the loft of each wedge.
Progressive groove constructions feature wider, shallower grooves on weaker lofted wedges (56, 58, 60) and narrow, tighter spaced grooves on stronger lofted wedges (50, 52, 54) for optimised spin and trajectory for various shots executions around the green.
Each face also has an optimised Variable Face Roughness that Cobra engineers use to maximise both average roughness and max peak-to-peak depth up to the USGA limits.
The King Black Wedge is available in Cobra’s familiar three sole grind configurations to match golfer’s ability and course condition.
The Versatile sole features a softened leading edge with heel and toe relief and a medium bounce (8-10*) to provide more shot versatility on medium to firm turf conditions.
The Classic grind features a thinner sole, higher bounce (11-12*) and a progressively wider sole from heel to toe for ease of use on all turf conditions.
The WideLow grind offers a wide sole with low bounce (4-7*) that serves as an excellent all around wedge perfect for medium to soft turf conditions.
The head incorporates a taller, muscle back design positions more mass directly behind the hitting zone and damps vibrations for a soft, yet solid feel at impact. The topline features a subtle chamfer to create a thinner topline which is the look preferred by Cobra’s Tour players.
The King Black Wedges also feature Cobra Connect technology, working in conjunction with the Arccos 360 mobile application, to provide golfers with detailed stats and data that helps them dial in their wedge game, track their performance and improve their scoring faster.
The technology of the King Black wedge is also available in the King Black ONE Wedge that has been designed to complement the ONE Length range of irons and hybrids.
To achieve optimum performance at 7-iron length and swing weight, the King Black ONE Wedge features a 1 degree flatter lie angle than the standard, variable length wedge to help produce straighter and more accurate trajectories on shorter approach shots in a one length set up.
