VER­DICT The best way to op­ti­mise spin is to im­prove how the face makes con­tact with the ball. Co­bra ad­dresses this in a few ways. First, the face is left unchromed to max­imise spin with a more con­sis­tent groove shape. Sec­ond, a thicker face and topline mit­i­gates un­wanted vi­bra­tion. Fi­nally, the higher lofts have wider grooves to chan­nel away de­bris for cleaner con­tact. COM­MENTS (L) The lit­tle cutout made it easy to lay the face open and hit all types of shots. (M) A re­ally com­pe­tent wedge. Great on low-check­ing shots with good spin out of the sand. (H) Easy to get the ball high and out of the bunker.
