PREVIEW: Cobra Golf King wedges

PREVIEW: Cobra Golf King wedges

Cobra Golf has rounded out its King family of golf clubs, introducing the new King wedges.

The company collaborated with staffers Rickie Fowler, Lexi Thompson and Jonas Blixt to design classic-looking wedges with softer feel and offer more versatility.

The wedges feature what Cobra dubs progressive groove design, which means that the grooves on the higher-lofted wedges (56 degrees and up) are themselves wider and positioned with more space in between them. The grooves are of a more traditional layout in the other lofts. The company also milled each wedge with a pattern design to deliver maximum spin -- at the USGA limit -- in conjunction with the grooves.

The King wedges, with their satin nickel chrome plating finish and a slick optional orange sole color, have three sole grinds:

  • The Versatile sole has a medium bounce (8-10 degrees) for medium to firm turf conditions
  • The Classic sole has a higher bounce (11-12 degrees) and a narrow sole for all-purpose use
  • The WideLow sole has a low bounce (4-7 degrees) and, yes, a wide sole for soft to medium conditions

The familiar Notch feature on the middle-back of the sole is also in the King line.

The Cobra King wedges are available April 1 for $149 each with a stock True Temper Dynamic Golf S200 shaft.
