Cobra Golf’s new King Cobra wedge with Snakebite Groove Technology represents a nostalgic throwback to the King Cobra logo, reminiscent of the rich history and evolution of the brand, while boasting cutting-edge technology to maximize spin and – fittingly – produce more ‘bite’ around the greens.
Snakebite Groove Technology utilizes a re-engineered cutting method that replaces cutting tools more often to tighten groove tolerances, maximize groove volume, and create the sharpest and most accurate grooves possible. The new Snakebite groove design increases the depth by 11% and sharpens the edges by 40% to deliver maximum spin to the ball.
Progressive groove lengths and progressive groove shapes optimize spin for each wedge loft. The 48 to 54-degree lofts feature a traditional groove length and narrower and deeper grooves to deliver consistent spin and trajectories on the lower lofted wedges that are used with a square or de-lofted face. The 56 to 60-degree lofts feature a full face groove length and wider and shallower grooves to maximize spin on shots with an open face, when the ball is more likely to make contact with the high toe area.
The faces and grooves are CNC Milled on each wedge to create precise face and groove shapes for optimal spin and trajectory control.
Three grinds are available to suit individual shot styles and preferences:
Versatile grind: an excellent all-around grind for medium to firm course conditions, featuring toe, heel and trailing edge relief.
Classic grind: features a progressive sole width from heel-to-toe, with trailing edge relief, benefiting neutral to steeper swings and a variety of course conditions.
Widelow grind: a wide, low bounce sole works its magic out of soft bunkers, soft turf conditions and prevents the leading edge from digging.
Delivering the same spin-enhancing groove technologies as the variable length wedge, the King Cobra One Length wedge is the perfect complement to One Length irons. The 37.5-inch One Length configuration promotes a repeatable setup and swing for increased consistency and accuracy around the greens. The One Length wedge is offered in 56- and 60-degree lofts in a Versatile Grind withe a full-face groove design.
The King Cobra Wedge is offered in 48, 50, 52, 54, 56, 58-and 60-degree loft in the Versatile grind. In a Widelow grind, the available lofts are 56, 58 and 60-degree, while the Classic grind lofts are 52, 56 and 60 degrees.
Each King Cobra Wedge features a black Lamkin Crossline Smart grip and an aftermarket KBS Hi-Rev 2.0 (125g) shaft.
Both the variable and One Length versions are equipped with Cobra Connect, Powered by Arccos Golf, featuring electronically enabled Lamkin Crossline smart grips that work in conjunction with the Arccos Caddie app to give users the ability to track their wedge stats.
