Launches New UFi Irons, L4V Drivers And Baffler Hybreds
Cobra Golf has come a long way since the early 1970s
when it was a struggling start up golf company. But
after new investment money in the mid 1970s, the company
going public in 1993, the involvement of Greg Norman in
the mid 1990s and then the acquisition of the company by
Acushnet, Cobra Golf really became successful. But
ultimately, that success only happened because of really
good golf products.
Cobra Golf was known then primarily as an iron company.
The King Cobra irons were revolutionary for their time
because of the cavity backs, stronger lofts and graphite
shafts. The Cobra tradition of innovation continues with
the new UFi golf irons. They have a metal matrix face
insert, a polymer topline, tungsten weights in the sole,
a urethane sole insert and an aluminum plate over the
back cavity. Even with all of this technology, they
still are pleasing to anyone with a traditional eye.
Skilled players will take a second look at these golf
irons. Swinging them is even better - they are among the
longest hitting irons in golf. This increased distance
comes not only from stronger lofts, but also from a new
clubhead design that produces a different trajectory.
Balls do not fly too low, a common complaint with modern
L4V golf drivers are available in three models that have
different face angles. The X model is neutral, the F is
slightly closed and the M has a draw bias. None of the
three golf drivers look closed at address. The L4Vs are
high flyers with plenty of carry distance. They won't be
accused of a low flying trajectory.
other new products are the Baffler DWS and Baffler Pro
utility golf clubs, both with an MSRP of $220 in
graphite. The DWS model has a contour sole that makes it
versatile for different types of lies. The heel and toe
weights in the DWS model are 18 percent larger than
those in the previous version. The DWS also has a
maraging steel face insert. Meanwhile, the Pro model has
a shallower face and a clean appearance.
