CO­BRA KING OVER­SIZE

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - GOLFING | GEARGUIDE -

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.
