Cobra Golf’s new King Speedzone irons deliver ultra-low CG and increased ball speed thanks to the brand’s first ever carbon fibre topline.
Cobra’s engineers took inspiration from design attributes of the fastest cars in the world to create five unique zones of performance in two new sets of irons that provide the optimum blend of distance, consistency and forgiveness.
For the first time, Cobra utilises two strips of carbon fibre to replace steel both on the topline and underneath the topline, creating a new I-beam type of construction allowing for saved weight and structural soundness. Carbon fibre is 40% lighter than steel and saves 3g of discretionary weight to be repositioned low to increase ball speed and launch in the 4-7irons.
High speed stability is achieved through the use of Speedback shaping, which creates a wider body design around the perimeter of the club that delivers increased MOI and aids in lower CG. The result is an iron that is both forgiving and accurate.
Cobra’s patented PWRShell Technology continues to offer increased speed and higher launch even on stronger lofted irons. The new forged PWRShell face in the Speedzone iron features an updated E9 face structure that helps to lower the CG and create more return through a deeper undercut speed channel.
While most golfers are looking for more distance and forgiveness, feel is still important. Cobra engineers focused on optimising feel through the creation of a co-moulded medallion system that damps vibrations quickly for exceptional sound and feel even on off-centre strikes.
Consistency of performance through trajectory and spin is optimised by the use of progressive spin technology that is 100% CNC milled throughout the set. V-grooves are utilised from the 4-6 iron to reduce spin and U-grooves on the 7-PW optimise spin, while wedge-based grooves on the GW and SW produce maximum spin.
Variable Length & One Length
There are two distinct iron models in the Speedzone equipment family. The King Speedzone Variable Length irons feature a progressive construction design – delivering progressive head shapes, grooves and hosel lengths that optimise launch and spin in the long irons, mid irons and wedges.
The King Speedzone One Length irons offer the same technology in a set design that promotes one repeatable set-up and swing for more consistency and accuracy. Each iron has matching lengths (37.50”), head weights and swing weights. The use of fine-tuned lie angles and progressive shaft weighting optimise high launch and forgiveness in the long irons, and lower launch with more control in the scoring irons and wedges.
Speedzone Variable Length irons are fitted with a KBS Tour 90 shaft in stiff or regular flex and a Lamkin Crossline Connect Black grip. The stock graphite offering is a UST Recoil ESX 460 shaft in stiff and regular flex.
Speedzone One Length irons come standard with a KBS Tour 80 (5-6i), KBS Tour 90 (7-9i) and KBS Wedge (PW) shaft in stiff or regular flex and a Lamkin Crossline Connect Blue grip. The graphite stock offerings are UST Recoil ESX 460 (5-9i) and UST Recoil ESX 480 (PW) in stiff and regular flex. The Asian specs offering comes with Cobra Speeder Evolution V graphite shaft (stiff and regular flexes) and Nippon NS Pro 950GH steel shaft (stiff and regular flexes).
Cobra Connect Powered by Arccos
The 2020 King Speedzone Irons, along with the full King Speedzone family, continue to employ Cobra Connect Powered by Arccos, the award-winning connected golf system that helps players of all skill levels make smarter, data-driven decisions. Electronically embedded sensors in the grip automatically record the distance and accuracy of every shot so golfers can track their improvements round-to-round.
