(from Press Release) – Cobra Golf unveils technologically advanced tools for game improvement in the new 2009 King Cobra SZ Irons, or “Sweet Zone” Irons. The irons’ low-and-wide design is defined by key components: Their sleek, low-profile clubhead design and shortened hosel result in a low-and-back Center of Gravity (CG), while a wide sole and heel-toe weighting system helps achieve maximum Moment of Inertia (MOI). These attributes create forgiving irons that help golfers launch the ball higher and achieve pinpoint accuracy on their shots.
“The SZ iron offers patented technology and winning performance at an affordable price,” said Brian Zender, General Manager for Cobra Golf. “The SZ is an award winner prior to our March launch and has impressed test panels with golfers of various abilities for its high trajectory, forgiveness, distance and feel.”
The irons feature a best-of-all-worlds approach, when it comes to design features.
“The SZ is designed from the ground up to deliver maximum forgiveness, consistency, and feel,” said Tom Preece, Vice President of Cobra Club Research and Development. “The wide sole, low profile, offset clubhead design creates a low-back CG location for high, draw-bias trajectory. The heel-toe perimeter weighting increases inertia for maximum clubhead stability on off-center hits. Plus the SZ features a unique patent-pending sole design which keeps the clubhead centered and stable both at address and through contact. The SZ performance design is coupled with a urethane insert, layered across the back side of the entire face, which dampens unwanted vibration and gives great feel.”
The all-new SZ irons for 2009 are ideal for golfers seeking superior distance, forgiveness and feel. They feature a progressive offset throughout the set, to make each iron as easy as possible to hit.
Wide Sole, Low-Profile Clubhead Design:
* The wide sole – which is rounded from front to back – prevents digging into the turf. Together with the low profile create an extreme low-and-back CG and high MOI, for high launch, more distance and maximum forgiveness.
* Provides higher inertia for greater forgiveness and accuracy.
Full Back Cavity Plate with Urethane-Backed Insert:
* Enhances feel.
Premium Aldila DVS-HL or Nippon N.S. 1030H Shafts:
* Lightweight shafts generate faster clubhead speeds for higher launch, increased distance and accuracy.
* Bounce/sole radius design provides a stable, balanced position at address.
King Cobra SZ irons are available in men’s graphite and steel shafts (4-GW), and women’s and seniors’ graphite (5-SW). SZ sets will begin shipping early March with a suggested retail price of $720 (graphite) and $600 (steel) per set.
