COBRA F8 IRONS
Technologically advanced golf clubs That feels strong with each hit.
Technology has been making waves in the game of golf this past decade from movable weights to interchangeable shafts, and now, Cobra has one-upped its competitors by introducing the first ever set of smart irons called the KING F8. Each King F8 iron will feature a grip embedded with Arccos compatible sensors and each purchase of a set will include additional sensors to provide the golfer a true full set of smart clubs.
Through the use of electronically enabled grips present in each club, golfers are now able to track their performance with Cobra Connect. The fully connected set works in conjunction with the Arccos 360 smartphone application, which is an advanced GPS rangefinder for more than 40,000 courses around the world.
The golf club itself is a technological wonder. Comprising of PWRSHELL Face technology, TECFLO progressive, and Carbon Feel technology, these construction innovations combine to bring golfers a potent blend of distance, speed and feel for the KING F8 irons.
For starters, the E9 PWRSHELL Face technology reduces the forged face thickness by 20 percent. This, combined with the E9 elliptical Sweet Zone construction gives the Cobra F8 more recoil upon impact over a larger zone so that balls are launched higher and further, yet easier to hit.
The Carbon Feel technology are inserts placed strategically to deliver a soft but firm feel throughout the set, and the addition of the Carbon Fibre medallions act as a vibration dampener for enhanced feel. Progressive hosel lengths throughout the set also strategically position the centre of gravity for optimum launch.
In the vein of progressive build in modern iron sets, the patented TECFLO Progressive Set Construction affirms club performance through varying cavity constructions to optimise the trajectory of each iron in the set.
The grooves on each club is also CNC milled to deliver optimum spin and trajectory. For example, the long to mid irons (#4-7) are of a hollow design, and it is built for a lower centre of gravity to improve launch trajectories. In addition, the milled V-grooves results in launches with less spin for longer shots.
For the mid to scoring irons (#8-PW), a cavity back design is beneficial for sharper approach shots. Focusing on tighter dispersions, the milled U-grooves optimise spin for enhanced control and accuracy, including from the rough.
All three wedges (GW, SW and LW) feature a traditional blade style look that has a cavity on the back for the Carbon Fibre insert and tighter spaced and wider grooves on the face. It is manufactured to be have a forgiving, versatile sole shape for ease of use from tight lies to rough.
Following the launch of the King F8 irons is the
King F8 One - the second batch of single length irons manufactured by Cobra.
The primary advancements are shaft tweaks to optimise preferred flight, more tip flexibility for the lower-lofted irons and less tip flexibility for higher lofts, translating to higher launch for long irons and lower launch for short irons.
The new KING F8 variable length irons are available in a variety of stock set options in Asian and Global specifications.
Global Specifications: True Temper XP 90 steel shaft, Aldila Rogue Pro 65 graphite shaft, Aldila Rogue 60 gram graphite
Asian Specifications: NS Pro steel and Fujikura Speeder graphite shaft
The KING F8 One comes with Aldila One Rogue 65, Fujikura Speeder, True Temper ONE Flighted and NS Pro steel shafts.
