Cobra adds bite to iron offering with King Utility collection

Must Read

I Dreamed a Dream*

'It feels as if we have forsaken this beautiful game. We haven’t. We’ve just been biding our time under a swell of anger. Who among us has not practised a swing with nothing in our empty hands but hope?'

High time golf made a comeback

'My hope is that we’ll be playing golf again next week, and that those funnelling into green spaces with nowhere else to go will be given a few more options'

An Ode to Dustin Johnson

'Certain factions of the media take great pleasure in the portrayal of Dustin – and brother and caddie Austin on occasion – as being a little dim witted at best, and downright dumb at worst. This is a particular pet hate'

So Rory, where did it all go wrong?

Net worth of over $100million, four Majors, fourth best golfer in the world and on his Christmas holidays in mid-November, all at 31 years young. Still, no green jacket

Cobra Golf has unveiled its new King Utility irons, delivering improved distance with a classic look and modern technology. The King Utility iron is designed for players who seek maximum control and precision on tee shots and longer approach shots on par 5’s.

A classic, muscle-back iron shape delivers the feeling of controlled ball flights, while a wider sole and hollow body provides stability, power, and a low centred CG for trajectories that are high and penetrating.  A PWRshell face insert adds to the performance by expanding the sweet zone for improved ball speeds on off-centre hits and launch efficiency for improved trajectory.

Normally only found in Metalwoods, Cobra engineers integrated into the Utility design the trusted Cobra MyFly8 technology, a series of eight adjustable loft settings that give users the ability to manage trajectory and launch for proper distance gapping.

Additionally, the King Utility irons are geared with Cobra Connect Powered by Arccos Caddie, an artificial intelligence system that utilizes Smart Grips with embedded sensors to track and record distance and accuracy data on the Arccos Caddie app. Cobra blends a classic design with cutting-edge engineering, including a hollow-body design, forged Pwrshell Face, and Tungsten Weighting, to deliver superior performance that users can track and analyse using the in-depth data provided by the Arccos Caddie system.

The King Utility is also offered in a One Length configuration (graphite – €210 & steel – €199), while sharing the technologies of its variable-length counterpart, is designed at 7-iron length (37.50”), making it a perfect complement to any of Cobra’s One Length iron offerings. Having a constant length through the set promotes one repeatable set-up and swing for more consistency, while the head design and weighting are fine-tuned to provide uniformity of feel through the set.

Traditional variable-length players can also benefit from the consistency and accuracy of the One Length Utility iron.  After analysing player test and Gears test results, a shorter length has been shown to improve playability in the long irons and promote centre contact for more precision.

Cobra King Utility irons (graphite – €210 & steel – €199), will be available in a 2-Utility in RH (adjustable from 16 – 20 degrees), 3-Utility in RH/LH (adjustable from 18 – 21 degrees) and 4-Utility in RH/LH (adjustable from 21 – 24 degrees).

The standard Utility comes with a steel KBS $-Taper lite (in S or R flex) and a graphite Project X Catalyst 80 (in X-Stiff, S, or R flex) shaft options with a Lamkin Crossline Connect Black grip.

The King Utility One Length irons will be available in a 3-Utility (adjustable from 18 – 21 degrees), 4-Utility (adjustable from 21 to 24 degrees) and a 5-Utility (adjustable from 24 to 27 degrees).

The One Length Utility offering comes standard with a steel KBS $-Taper lite (in S or R flex) and a graphite Project X Catalyst 80 (in S, XS, or R flex) shaft options with a Lamkin Crossline Connect Blue grip.

King Utility products will be available at retail and online from June 12, 2020.
