Cobra has unveiled its new line of F7 fairway woods and hybrids, utilising the brand’s Baffler Rail System.

First introduced more than 40 years ago, it makes a comeback to compliment new tech in 2016.

“Rails on our fairways and hybrids create a more forgiving and efficient turf interaction when hitting from any lie,” said Jose Miraflor, Sr. Director Product Marketing COBRA Golf.

“Proven though Rickie’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.”

Cobra F7 Fairway woods – 3-4, 5-6, 7-8

Progressive rail heights that are strategically engineered to be shallower in the 3-4 woods and progressively thicker as you move into the 7-8 to deliver easy-up distance and consistency from every lie.

The front of the rails improve turf forgiveness while the back of the rails help the club glide out of the turf more smoothly.

The F7 Fairways come equipped with two Centre of Gravity (CG) positions and 20-gram and 3-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 maximise 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, which creates discretionary weight and allows for greater CG adjustability. MyFly8 delivers eight loft positions.

KING LTD Black Fairway

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 ultimate distance.

An added bonus – 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% 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, creates a thinner, more unsupported face for increased distance and faster ball speeds on off-center hits. MyFly8 with SmartPad allows for eight adjustable loft settings

KING F7 hybrids
