Cobra Golf has introduced its new collection of F7 fairways and hybrids.
The F7 fairway and hybrid family utilizes Cobra’s Baffler Rail System, first introduced in the brand’s original Baffler woods more than 40 years ago, blended with today’s front-to-back weighting systems for a combination of personalization, distance, control and forgiveness from any lie.
“Rails on our fairways and hybrids create a more forgiving and efficient turf interaction when hitting from any lie,” said Jose Miraflor, senior director of product marketing for Cobra Golf.
“Proven though Rickie (Fowler’s) performance with his current Baffler fairway wood, the Rail Technology allows him to be aggressive when attacking greens. These same tour-proven technologies will provide all golfers with the perfect blend of distance and control,” added Miraflor.
The F7 Fairways (3-4F, 5-6F and 7-8F) feature progressive rail heights that are strategically engineered to be shallower in the three and four woods and progressively thicker as you move into the seven and eight to deliver easy-up distance and consistency from every lie.
The front of the rails are designed to improve turf forgiveness, while the back of the rails help the club glide out of the turf more smoothly.
The F7 Fairways are equipped with two centre of gravity (CG) positions and 20-gram and three-gram moveable weights that can be positioned in the front or the back to deliver either a penetrating or towering trajectory, depending on player preference and varying course conditions.
To maximize distance and ball speed, Cobra Golf engineers used a thinner, high-strength, forged 475 stainless steel face insert, along with a 17-4 stainless steel body, to create discretionary weight and allows for greater CG adjustability.
MyFly8 delivers eight loft positions to fine-tune players’ long games. Available in black/orange, silver/yellow and blue/red colourways in right and left-handed, the F7 Fairways come equipped with a graphite Fujikura Pro 65 shaft and Lamkin REL-Black grip.
King LTD Black Fairways
King LTD Black Fairways features the same SpacePort design seen in the King LTD Drivers, a multi-purpose structure that strategically positions discretionary weight low in the club head for better distance.
By removing the port, golfers can visually access the Cobra technologies on the interior of the club.
The crown is made of a multi-material TeXtreme Carbon Fiber which is 20 per cent lighter than a standard carbon fiber crown. The weight saved can then be distributed lower to deliver Zero CG in a fairway for high-launch, low-spin and maximum speed for more distance.
The Speed Channel Face, an engineered trench around the perimeter of the face, helps create a thinner, more unsupported face for increased distance and faster ball speeds on off-centre hits.
MyFly8 with SmartPad allows for eight adjustable loft settings. The LTD Fairways (3-4 and 4-5) are available in righthanded only in a new, stunning matte black finish. The LTD fairways come equipped with a graphite Aldila Rogue Black 70g shaft and Lamkin UTX 360 grip.
King F7 Hybrids
Rounding out the metalwood collection are the KING F7 Hybrids, which also feature Cobra’s Baffler Dual Rail design for improved turf reaction and consistency from various lies.
Each club (2-3H, 3-4H and 4-5H) features a fixed back CG (13-gram) to deliver high MOI and a more centered CG for more forgiveness and precision.
The new hybrid touts a thin 455 SS face for better ball speed. The hybrids also feature Cobra’s MyFly8 and come in black with orange highlights with a graphite Fujikura Pro 75h shaft and Lamkin REL-Black grip.
The women’s F7 Fairways (3-4F, 5-6F, 7-8F) also come equipped with Baffler rail technology, two front/back CG positions and MyFly8.
They come in two colorways: silver with raspberry and black with Lexi blue and graphite Fujikura Pro 55 and Cobra Lamkin REL grips.
King F7 Ladies Hybrids (3-4H, 4-5H, 5-6H) feature rails, along with a single fixed weight (8.5g) positioned low and back to deliver a high towering ball flight for better distance and forgiveness.
