The King returned to Cobra Golf last year with the King LTD driver and the King F6 range that included drivers, fairways, hybrids and irons.

The short game has now been covered with the release of the Cobra King wedges, which come in 3 sole grind options to suit all swings and course conditions.

Cobra King Wedge

Wedges are all about getting the correct fit for your game, picking the best combination of loft, bounce and grind to help you attack more pins, get up and down more often and make more sand saves.

Jose Miraflor, Director of Product Marketing at Cobra Golf explains:

We’ve been working on these new wedges for nearly two years to create the best-performing speciality wedges for golfers. Our Cobra engineers collaborated with our tour players, including Rickie Fowler, Jonas Blixt and Lexi Thompson, and conducted extensive research and testing on the King wedges. Through that we've greatly improved wedge feel and versatility, giving golfers the confidence to hit a variety of shots around the green.

The Cobra King wedge helps golfers get the best configuration with three grind options: Versatile, Classic and WideLow.

The Versatile grind has toe, heel and trailing edge relief and is suited suited to players with a slider or neutral attack angle on courses whose turf is medium to firm.

The Classic grind has a progressive sole width from heel to toe to allow players with all swing types to benefit in all turf conditions.

Finally, the WideLow grind has a wide sole with reduced bounce for players who tend to come into the ball from steeper angles and to allow more consistency on courses where the ground is generally softer.

The grind options are backed up with other key technologies that Cobra believes are key to excelling with shots into and around the green.

The faces of the King wedge have a new progressive milled groove design that features wider grooves and gapping on the weaker lofted wedges, and narrower, tighter spaced grooves in the stronger lofted clubs to give optimum spin and trajectory.

The new grooves are combined with Variable Face Roughness a milling technology Cobra uses to maximise average roughness and max peak to peak depth to the USGA limit.

The notch design, a long standing feature of Cobra wedges, has been improved to enable the sole and trailing edge to sit lower to the ground. This means the blade height is closer to the turf on shots where the wedge is square or open, allowing for greater consistency of shot.

Cobra King Wedge

Spin is maximised with the use of a variable face roughness that optimises grip across the face to give the control required for shot making from both grass and sand around the green.

The Cobra King wedges come in 12 combinations of loft, bounce and grind and are plated with a Satin Nickel Chrome that reduces glare and provides a durable finish.
