Buyers Guide 2017: Cobra F7 Fairway Metals & Hybrids

Cobra F7 fairway metal The Cobra F7 fairway and hybrid family utilizes the Baffler Rail System, first introduced in the brand’s original Baffler woods more than 40 years ago, blended with today’s front-to-back weighting systems for the perfect combination of personalization, distance, control and forgiveness from any lie. The F7 Fairways feature progressive rail heights 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. They are equipped with two Center 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. KING LTD Black Fairway features the same, revolutionary SpacePort design seen in the KING LTD Drivers, a multi-purpose structure that stra-tegically positions discretionary weight low in the club head for ultimate distance. An added bonus — by removing the port, golfers can visually ac-cess 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 un-supported face for increased distance and faster ball speeds on off-center hits.

Cobra F7 hybridRounding out the metalwood collection are the KING F7 Hybrids, which also feature COBRA’s Baffler Dual Rail design for improved turf reaction and consistency from every lie. Each club features a fixed back CG (13-gram) to deliver high MOI and a more centered CG for more forgiveness and precision shot after shot. The new hybrid touts a thin 455 SS face for maximum ball speed. The women’s F7 Fairways (MAP $239 – 3-4F, 5-6F, 7-8F) also come equipped with Baffler rail technology, two front/back CG positions and MyFly8. They come in two colorways: silver with raspberry and black with Lexi blue.
