COBRA KING OVERSIZE
www.cobragolf.com Availability: 4-PW, GW, SW (stock set 4-PW/5-SW) Stock shaft: True Temper XP 85 (s) UST Recoil 460 (g) 7i loft/length: 30° / 37.50”
TECH: 12% bigger than last year’s F6. A PWRShell face has springiness very close to
the driver limit.
WE SAY: Hollow bodies are proven for forgiveness, as they offer new opportunities to preserve ball speed no matter where you impact shots on the face. If we gave out awards for the largest head, this would be our winner; it’s huge. The King felt really good and flighted shots really easily. But because of the head size and the distracting ball-shaped pattern in the grooves (which some golfers will feel gives a good impression of where they should be impacting shots), along with the just above average numbers, it didn’t quite beat the best.
VERDICT: They feel very easy to launch, which is partly down to the excellent True Temper XP shaft (which you’ll also find in Callaway’s Apex CF 16 and TaylorMade’s M1). Thanks to the size there’s excellent offcentre forgiveness.
