‘Tis the Season

Hey Gang:

Well, like it or not that time of the year is upon us. Canadian Thanksgiving is long-gone, Halloween, it’s gone too and so to are Remembrance/Veteran’s Day (depending on where you reside). With the American Thanksgiving having come and gone this past Thursday, all of the turkeys in North America can basically relax, wipe the sweat from their collective brows and gobble along. For every one that celebrated yesterday I hope that you stayed safe and managed to sleep off the tryptophan coma in time to score some terrific Black Friday deals. Personally speaking, I never do the Black Friday thing.

turkey-in-a-chair

Now that Black Friday has come and gone like those other significant days mentioned beforehand the beginning has come. The official beginning to the holiday season. So whether you celebrate Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Omisoka (Japan) or similar I will be offering a few gift ideas for the golfer in your life. Even if it means the gift is for you.

Some ideas that I’ll be offering come from marketing agencies that I worked with during the year or in some cases throughout the years. In some cases, some of the gift ideas may have pricey costs to them. Knowing that not everyone can have that kind of budget available (I’m one of them) I’ll be offering gift ideas for those on a budget as well. So with that in mind keep an eye open for the 2019 UTNT Holiday Gift Guide. In that guide, I’m going to aim to have all gift ideas under $200. Good luck right?! Not exactly.

Awesome Golf. A software suite for FlightScope Golf.

So stay tuned. As sure as the sun will rise in the east tomorrow morning the holidays are on their way. Like a runaway freight train. Keep an eye open on a “tab” at the top that says “2019 Holiday Gift Ideas”.

Until The Next Tee!!

COBRA GOLF’S KING SPEEDZONE FAIRWAYS & HYBRIDS DELIVER A NEW LEVEL OF POWER, SPEED AND DISTANCE

Previously, I’ve posted press releases regarding the bulk of the product launches for the 2020 product rage from COBRA Golf. These releases included the likes of the KING Forged Tec irons, the SPEEDZONE irons and drivers and last but not least COBRA’s first all-hollow hybrid set the T-Rail. With the final release from COBRA Golf below see what the Carlsbad, CA company has in store for golfers looking to up their fairway metal and hybrid game.

I’m looking forward to seeing if the line-up garners attention for the 2020 Teezy Awards.

Thanks go out to Rachel Rees once again for sharing this information. Ms. Rees is the Senior Managers of Communications for COBRA PUMA Golf. See you in January Rachel.

Carlsbad, Calif. (November 19, 2019) Cobra Golf®, a leader in golf club innovation, today introduced the 2020 KING SPEEDZONE family of clubs, including Fairways & Hybrids. COBRA Golf engineers optimized specific zones throughout the club’s construction that works to deliver the best combination of power, speed, and distance.

webimage-2793147F-D5BB-41A0-8F79484F4A5AAE0D

For 2020, COBRA is offering golfers the choice of three new fairway woods designed to suit a wide variety of golfers. The first, the KING SPEEDZONE Fairway ($279), is a more traditional model, designed with back weighting and a slightly shallower face for easy launch, higher trajectories and maximum forgiveness that yields increased distance. The second, the KING SPEEDZONE Tour Fairway ($279), features a compact shape, with forward CG weighting, designed for better players that desire low spin, a more piercing trajectory and workability. The third fairway offering is the SPEEDZONE Big Tour Fairway ($279) which features the largest profile of the three, stronger loft, forward CG weighting, and near-zero CGna, that produces the optimal combination of fast ball speed, high launch and low spin for extreme distance. All three fairway options feature COBRA CONNECT Powered by Arccos which allows golfers to track the accuracy and distance of every shot using the Arccos Caddie app on their smart device.

Throughout the three KING SPEEDZONE fairway offerings, COBRA engineers focused on optimizing four key “zones” in order to deliver more distance, forgiveness, and accuracy than ever before.

ZONE 1 – THE POWER ZONE – the only forged CNC Milled Face in a fairway wood, created using industry-leading face manufacturing technology, allows for a thinner and hotter face design that is up to five times more precise than traditional hand polishing. This allows COBRA’s R&D team to repeatedly, and consistently, expand the zone for maximum ball speed.

ZONE 2 – THE FLEX ZONE – The new split rail structure divides the rail system into a front and rear portion. The front rails, silver in color, have been hollowed out to create thinner walls that flex with impact while still providing Baffler Rail technology to prevent the leading edge of the fairway from digging. The result is more flection for ball speed and higher launch, and a leading-edge that glides through the turf delivering more club head speed through impact.

webimage-7B7FA413-2D82-48C1-95A2150E6E480A6B

 

ZONE 3 – THE STABILITY ZONE – Dual Baffler Rails provide excellent stability and speed through the turf, allowing the club to glide effortlessly out of any lie and deliver more club and ball speed at impact.

ZONE 4 – THE LIGHT ZONE – An ultralight carbon fiber crown saves 10 grams of discretionary weight that is strategically positioned to lower the CG for higher launch with increased forgiveness. Rounding out the high-performance design, MyFly with SmartRail™ technology affords golfers their choice of five (5) loft settings and three (3) draw settings to help manage trajectory and customize launch conditions while Smart Rail™ keeps the face square regardless of the loft setting.

Providing the perfect complement to the SPEEDZONE fairway woods, COBRA is also unveiling its new KING SPEEDZONE Hybrids, available in Variable or ONE Length designs. Again, engineers optimized specific zones of the construction to engineer the highest level of performance in a hybrid.

The performance can be attributed to the following key technologies:

 Hollow Split Rail Technology – allows for more flex than solid rails, creating a larger hot spot for higher launch and increased distance.
 Back Weighting – weight concentrated low and back creates higher launch, more spin, towering trajectories and maximum carry.
 Forged E9 Face- A forged, two-piece construction features a high-strength 455 stainless steel that can be designed thinner for increased ball speed.
 Refined Shape – slightly larger than a traditional hybrid, the shape features a high MOI for increased forgiveness on off-center hits, and a square leading edge to improve alignment and accuracy.
 COBRA Connect – Track your accuracy and distance and overall performance using the Arccos Caddie app on your smart device.

The KING SPEEDZONE men’s Hybrids (MAP $229) are available in 2H (17 O ), 3H (19 O ), 4H (21 O ) & 5h (24 O ) of loft and come standard with a aftermarket UST Recoil 480 ESX shaft in R, S or LITE Flex and a black Lamkin Crossline (58+) COBRA CONNECT grip.

The KING SPEEDZONE Women’s Hybrids, in a stunning Matte Black/Rose Gold colorway, are available in 4H (21 O ), 5H (24 O ), 6H (28 O ) and 7H (31 O ) of loft and come stock with UST Recoil 450 ESX shaft in ladies’ flex and a black/rose gold Lamkin Crossline COBRA CONNECT grip.

The KING SPEEDZONE ONE Length Hybrids (MAP $229) share the same performance boosting technologies as the traditional length hybrids do, in COBRA’s patented ONE Length configuration. Each hybrid features 7-iron length configuration to simplify a players’ game by allowing them to use one repeatable set-up and swing, giving them 7-iron consistency in their hybrid.

These hybrids are available in 2H (19 O ), 4H (21 O ) and 5H (24 O ) of loft and come standard with a UST Recoil 480 ESX shaft in S, R or LITE flexes (in RH/LH) and a blue Lamkin Crossline COBRA CONNECT grip.

COBRA INVITES GOLFERS TO ENTER THE SPEEDZONE WITH ITS FASTEST, MOST TECHNOLOGICALLY ADVANCED DRIVER FAMILY EVER

Step into the zone. SPEEDZONE. COBRA Golf has unveiled its newest line of drivers with the KING SPEEDZONE and KING SPEEDZONE XTREME and these sticks look fast. With inspiration drawn from the auto-racing world (the exhaust pipes), an amazing looking face looking to give you “infinite” distance (Infinity Milled Face), and packed into a traditionally-shaped head (from address) there is much to get golfers in a lather. I for one cannot wait to get my hands onto one.

Carlsbad, Calif. (November 19, 2019) Cobra Golf®, a leader in golf club innovation, today introduced its new SPEEDZONE TM Drivers – the company’s fastest and most powerful drivers to date. Taking inspiration from design attributes of the fastest cars in the world, COBRA optimized six unique zones of performance to deliver unrivaled speed and distance in two new drivers, the KING SPEEDZONE and the KING SPEEDZONE XTREME. Like a racecar, every component from the internal chassis design to the exterior shaping was engineered to maximize power output. Below is a rundown of the six zones of performance COBRA delivers in its 2020 SPEEDZONE Driver line.

webimage-2416580F-316D-457F-8645E2CD8E2FC2FC

  1. POWER ZONE – CNC Infinity Milled Face – the face is the engine of the driver and is crucial for generating speed. Using the only CNC Milled Face in a driver, COBRA has expanded the milled area of the face by 95% enabling them to control face & leading-edge thickness. Face and perimeter curvature can be up to 5 times more precise than traditional face polishing. In addition, every face is 100% inspected to ensure a larger SPEEDZONE across the face for maximum ball speed.
  1. STRENGTH ZONE – COBRA’s SPEEDZONE drivers feature a new Titanium T-Bar Speed Chassis. COBRA engineers removed unnecessary titanium to create more discretionary weight while maintaining a strong structure designed to withstand high-speed collisions. The discretionary weight is utilized to create low CG and high inertia resulting in fast, forgiving performance.
  1. LIGHT ZONE – The new SPEEDZONE chassis allows for more carbon fiber than ever before. A 360 Carbon Wrap Crown design makes up 50% of the driver’s body, providing ample stiffness and support to the chassis while saving 25 grams of discretionary weight. That weight has been repositioned low and back and around the perimeter where it is needed most.
  1. LOW CG ZONE – Low CG is essential for driver performance, delivering maximum ball speed, higher launch & low spin. In the KING SPEEDZONE driver, COBRA continues to deliver a low CG for optimal performance, similar to the 2019 SPEEDBACK driver. In the SPEEDZONE driver, 69 grams of mass (vs. 40 in SPEEDBACK) has been strategically positioned low in the driver for optimal launch conditions.
  1. AERO ZONE – combining aerodynamics with a low center of gravity continues to be a strength that COBRA delivers with its drivers. The new SPEEDZONE shaping harnesses airflow for maximum drag reduction and increased clubhead speed.
  1. STABILITY ZONE – High-speed stability is both important in racing and in driver performance. SPEEDZONE’s High MOI Design positions weight away from the center of the head to maximize stability on off-center hits for longer, straighter drives.

webimage-48247A40-6E05-40E6-957A32BBCB999016

Appealing to a wide range of golfing ability levels, COBRA offers two distinct driver models in the SPEEDZONE equipment family. The KING SPEEDZONE Driver ($449) offers a traditional shape profile with front to back CG adjustability allowing better players to work the ball with ease and finetune launch and low spin without sacrificing forgiveness. The KING SPEEDZONE XTREME Driver ($449) is perfect for golfers who are looking for a consistent, straight trajectory with maximum forgiveness on off-center hits. As COBRA’s more forgiving option XTREME features a slightly larger shape profile with more perimeter weighting and a 17-gram tungsten weight that sits behind the rear exhaust pipe design to achieve the company’s highest measured MOI to date.

“Our new KING SPEEDZONE drivers emphatically answered the question we are always asked – can you really improve the driver any further and stay within the rules of golf? That answer is yes,” said Tom Olsavsky, VP of R&D for COBRA Golf. “By approaching design the same way you would if you were trying to create the world’s fastest cars, we left nothing on the table in terms of speed considerations. With our six zones of performance, SPEEDZONE is the fastest driver that we have ever produced.”

In addition, 20+ no-charge premium shaft upgrades are available through custom.

The 2020 KING SPEEDZONE™ Drivers (along with the full KING SPEEDZONE family of products including irons, fairways, and hybrids) will continue to employ COBRA CONNECT™ Powered by Arccos, the award-winning smart golf system that helps players of all skill levels make smarter, data-driven decisions. Electronically enabled sensors are embedded into the grip, automatically recording the distance and accuracy of every shot so golfers can track performance round-to-round and use analysis to improve practice sessions. Golfers also have access to Arccos Caddie, which utilizes Artificial Intelligence to make better on-course decisions for lower scores. Golfers who use Arccos Caddie typically improve, on average, 3.6 strokes on their handicap in the first year.
