COBRA Golf unveiled today the updated SNAKEBITE Wedges. The wedges will be available in three models - SNAKEBITE, SNAKEBITE One Length, and an-all new game improvement model, SNAKEBITEx.
The updated SNAKEBITE groove design is engineered to maximize spin and fittingly produce more ‘bite’ around the greens.
GolfMagic will be testing out these new wedges over the coming weeks to see if they make it into our Best Golf Wedges buyer guide for 2023.
The SNAKEBITE Groove Technology utilizes a re-engineered CNC Milling process to tighten groove tolerances, maximize groove volume, and create the most aggressive groove COBRA Golf has created to date.
The new Groove Technology increases the groove depth by 11% and sharpens the edges by 40% to deliver maximum spin to the ball.
COBRA’s progressive spin technology optimizes performance by tailoring groove lengths and groove depth for each wedge loft.
The 48–54-degree lofts feature a traditional groove length and narrower and deeper grooves to deliver consistent spin and trajectories on the lower lofted wedges.
The 56–60-degree lofts feature 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.
In addition, the 58- and 60-degree wedges feature a new versatile notch design that moves the classic COBRA® notch towards the heel for improved clubhead delivery through any turf or sand conditions.
The SNAKEBITE Wedge (£129) is available in two different finishes (satin chrome and QPQ black) and three grinds:
- 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, for neutral to steeper swings in a variety of course conditions.
- Widelow grind: a wide, low bounce sole works its magic out of soft bunkers and soft turf conditions and prevents the leading edge from digging.
Delivering the same spin-enhancing groove technologies as the variable length model, the SNAKEBITE ONE Length Wedge is the perfect complement to COBRA’s ONE Length irons.
Designed at 37.5”, the ONE Length configuration promotes a repeatable setup and swing for increased consistency and accuracy around the greens.
The ONE Length is offered in 48-, 52-, 54-, 56- and 60-degree lofts with the Versatile Grind.
The SNAKEBITEx Wedge (£129) is an all-new game improvement model featuring a HOLLOW CAVITY BACK DESIGN built with a SOFT TPU INSERT resulting in game-changing forgiveness and great feel.
The wedge features full face SNAKEBITE grooves across all lofts to provide superior spin performance on any open face shots.
Additionally, the wedge is equipped with a new teardrop grind that provides versatility in any turf conditions. The SNAKEBITEx is offered in 48-, 52-, 56-, 60-degree lofts in a satin chrome finish.
Each SNAKEBITE Wedge features a black Lamkin Crossline grip. The SNAKEBITE and SNAKEBITE One Length Wedges come equipped with an aftermarket KBS Hi-Rev 2.0 (125g) steel shaft. The SNAKEBITEx Wedge is offered with a KBS MAX 85 (102g) steel shaft.
The SNAKEBITE Wedges are available Friday, March 10, 2023.
