CO­BRA F8 IRONS

Tech­no­log­i­cally ad­vanced golf clubs That feels strong with each hit.

Golf Vacations (Malaysia) - - Collection - By Jackie Teo

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.
