The new Fly-Z+ driver from Cobra comes with front-to-back Flipzone adjustable weight technology to offer a change in the centre of gravity for the chosen flight path for better distance without adjusting the swing.
“I’m really excited about the new Fly-Z+ driver. In our early prototype testing I saw the positive effects the two settings could have on ball flight. For me, the front CG setting yielded the ball flight I want to see on the course,” said Cobra Golf athlete Rickie Fowler. “The adjustable loft setting Cobra introduced last year was a huge advantage to my game, but now adding this new Zone Weighting to fine tune ball flight is really game-changing,” he added.
The new FlipZone weight technology offers the ability to move the low centre of gravity to the front or back position depending on the swing, to promote faster ball speeds, lower spin and better launch angles.
“The Fly-Z+ driver features the lowest CG of any adjustable weight driver on the market,” said vice president of research and development Tom Olsavsky.
“The new FlipZone provides golfers with two different flight paths in one head, allowing golfers to play what is best for their games. The result is one unique, performance and technology driven golf club that is truly game changing,” he added.
The FlipZone is COBRA’s first front-to-back CG adjustable technology that features a 15- gram weight that can be set toward the front or back of the head located low on the sole of the driver.
Performance differs in the two weight settings, allowing golfers to adjust to what is the longest and straightest for them.
The front CG position is used to provide a mid-launch angle with low spin and a penetrating ball flight with more roll, while the back CG position is used to deliver a mid-launch angle with 400 RPMs of additional spin, resulting in a higher ball flight with more carry.
The Fly-Z+ driver also features Cobra’s New Speed Channel Technology, which is an engineered trench around the perimeter of the face that works to minimize thickness for increased ball speeds across the face.
Forged E9 Zone Face technology removes weight from key areas behind the face and hosel to increase the size and speed of the sweet zone for more distance on off-centre hits.
Advanced multi-material construction and next generation T.O.P (Thin. Optimized. Personalized) Technology advances with a new Titanium 6-4 body and carbon fiber crown and sole pieces are used to maximize discretionary weight.
The discretionary weight from the face, hosel, crown and body is strategically positioned low in the head for distance and forgiveness.
The Fly-Z+ Driver continues to utilize Cobra Golf’s game-changing MyFly8 and SmartPad, allowing golfers to select from multiple loft/trajectory settings to tune their games with loft settings from 8.5 to 11.5 degrees.
The Fly- Z+ driver is available in regular, stiff and x-stiff flex in five colors, including black, white, blue, orange and red.
Available in right-handed and left-handed models, the driver features a graphite, authentic, after-market Matrix VLCT ST shaft (60 g.) and Lamkin-ACE 3GEN Crossline grip.
Additionally the driver is offered in other premium shafts for no additional charge, including the Aldila Tour Green (67 g.), a heavier weighted Aldila Tour Blue (76 g.) and the all-new, lightweight MATRIX White Tie X4 (53 g.).
The Fly-Z Driver is engineered to deliver a blend of distance and increased forgiveness. The low, back CG Zone Weighting offers low spin, mid-high launch and fast ball speeds across the face.
“The Fly-Z Driver is positioned as one of the most forgiving drivers currently in the marketplace, yet it doesn’t sacrifice distance,” said Olsavsky.
“The 460 c.c. driver offers a slightly larger address profile that enabled our engineers to create the most forgiving driver that Cobra Golf has ever made,” he said.
The E9 Zone Face structure and Crown Zone Weighting combine to create a large amount of discretionary weight in an all titanium driver. The weight saved is strategically positioned low and back in the head where the back zone weight is located.
MyFly8 technology allows golfers to choose from eight simple adjustable loft/trajectory settings (9-12 degrees) to maximize distance and manage trajectory, while SmartPad is designed to deliver a square face at address regardless of loft setting.
The Fly-Z driver is available in black, white, blue, orange and red in right and lefthanded models in Lite, Regular, Stiff and X-Stiff flexes.
Featuring a 6-4 titanium body with a forged 6-4 titanium face, Fly-Z driver comes with a graphite, Matrix VLCT SP shaft and Lamkin REL 360 grip.
The Fly-Z technology was also reconfigured for women golfers so that CG, lofts (10.5 – 13.5 degrees) and performance is maximized for slower swing speeds.
The women’s Fly-Z driver is available in Raspberry, Silver Flower Pearl and Ultramarine and features a graphite, Matrix VLCT SP shaft in ladies’ flex with a Winn Wrap grip.
The Fly-Z XL Driver is engineered to help make golf easier through higher draw-biased ball flights for more distance.
A 460 c.c. all-titanium head features a slightly lower profile face combined with an offset hosel to deliver the trajectory often needed by seniors, women and beginning golfers.
The offset Fly-Z XL driver is designed to deliver up to 17.5 yards of draw bias.
The Speed Channel Face with Forged E9 Face Weighting, Crown Zone technology along with an all-titanium head, combined to save weight and deliver a back CG position for forgiveness and draw bias.
Fly-Z XL features a Graphite, Matrix shaft and is available in 9.5, 10.5 and 11.5 in Stiff, Regular or Lite flexes in right-handed or left-handed models. The Driver has a Lamkin REL 360 Grip.
The women’s XL driver comes in Raspberry/Silver Pearl with a graphite, Matrix VLCT Shaft and Winn Wrap grip.
