Cobra Golf, a leader in golf club innovation and technology, today introduced the KING F6+ and F6 family of products, which expand the collection of clubs under the legendary KING brand name, and will be in-store at leading golf retailers countrywide from mid-January 2016. Through innovative research, premium materials, and COBRA’s unique performance enhancing technologies, personalised distance and adjustable center of gravity (CG) are now available to golfers of all levels.
To give golfers the ultimate in distance, control, speed and accuracy, the KING F6+ Driver (retails for R6 499) integrates an all-new, revolutionary CarbonTrac weighting system. The system features a sliding weight with five front-to-back, low CG positions that is encased in a carbon fiber shell. It replaces the heavier, titanium track structure used in the Fly-Z+ driver. By creating additional discretionary weight through the use of a carbon fiber crown, new Ti 811 titanium body and forged face, COBRA was able to utilize an 18-gram weight on the sole of the driver to deliver ultra-low CGs and ball flights ranging from towering to penetrating for personalised distance and forgiveness off the tee.
The KING F6+ Driver also features Forged E9 Zone Face technology, an internal feature that removes weight from key areas behind the face and in the hosel to increase the size and speed of the Sweet Zone for more distance on off-center hits. Externally, the visible Speed Channel technology, an engineered trench around the perimeter of the face and toe area, creates additional discretionary weight to minimize face thickness, delivering faster ball speeds for even more distance.
The KING F6+ Driver is available in four stock colors: Glass Black with Vibrant Orange accents; Blue Aster; White Pearl; Grey Turbulence with Gecko Green accents (the Grey & Green colorway will be introduced March 15, 2016). The driver can be ordered through custom in Vibrant Orange.
Available in RH/LH models, in regular, stiff and x-stiff flex, the driver features a graphite Matrix OZIK Black Tie 65g shaft and Lamkin 3GEN Crossline 360 grip. The F6+ driver comes with a range of five lofts – 9°, 9.5°, 10.5°, 11.5°, and 12° and three draw settings – 9.5°D, 10.5°D and 11.5°D. The F6+ is also offered in a Pro model (retails for R6 499) which features the same size head (460cc) as the F6+, but with a lower loft range (7.0°-10°), a flatter lie angle and fade settings instead of draw. All that works to provide more launch control and lower spin for even more penetrating trajectory range. It comes in black only, through custom orders.
The KING F6 Driver (retails for R4 999) features a dual position front-to-back CG system with 10-and 3-gram flip weights. This system delivers the ultimate blend of distance and extreme forgiveness, and promote faster ball speeds, lower spin and optimal launch angles.
With the heavier weight in the front CG position you’ll see a penetrating ball flight with less spin that delivers more roll for maximum distance; while the back CG weight position delivers a towering ball flight with added spin to create more carry and increased forgiveness. For an increased range of performance, the light 3-gram weight can be removed all together, offering a third option to maximize CG movement and spin differential.
The KING F6 Driver is available in Black, White, Blue and Gray, in RH/LH in Lite, Regular, Stiff and X-Stiff flexes, and comes with a graphite, Matrix OZIK Red Tie 65Q4 shaft and Lamkin REL 360 grip. MyFly8 Loft Range: 9°, 9.5°, 9.5°D, 10.5°, 10.5°D, 11.5°, 11.5°D, and 12°.
The KING F6 family also includes a collection of Fairway Woods 3-4F, 5-6F and 7-8F (retail for R2 999) also with adjustable front-to-back weighting. Each fairway, like the F6 driver, features two CG positions and 20-gram and 3-gram moveable weights. Additionally, to maximize distance and ball speed, engineers used a 475 SS face insert combined with COBRA’s Speed Channel Technology. MyFly8 combined with SmartPad delivers eight loft positions to fine-tune your long game.
Available in black and blue in RH/LH, the F6 Fairways come with a Matrix OZIK Red 65Q4 shaft in Lite, R, S and X, and a Lamkin REL 360 grip. Like the driver, a Grey Turbulence with Gecko Green accents model will be available March 15.
Rounding out the metalwood collection are the KING F6 Hybrids 2-3H, 3-4H and 4-5H (retail for R2 599). Available in RH/LH and featuring a fixed 13-gram back CG weight to deliver high MOI and a more center CG for both forgiveness and precision shot after shot. The new head shape is 3-grams lighter than previous models and touts a thin 455 SS face along with Speed Channel technology for maximum ball speed. The hybrids also feature COBRA’s MyFly8 with SmartPad technologies, and come in Black only, with a MATRIX OZIK Red Tie 75Q4 shaft and a Lamkin REL 360 grip.
The KING F6 metalwoods are also available in Women’s, including driver (R4 999), fairway (R2 999) and hybrid (R2 599), in Raspberry/Silver and Silver/Ultramarine Blue colorways. KING F6 ladies clubs feature the same technology used in the men’s versions but have been fine tuned to maximize launch and distance for women golfers, who generally have slower swing speeds and need slightly shorter lengths and lighter swing weights. The women’s driver and fairway feature lofts (Range: 10°, 10.5°, 10.5°D, 11.5°, 11.5°D, 12.5°, 12.5°D, and 13°) that are designed around a women’s swing speed to create optimized launch and spin and ultimately maximum distance.
“The KING F6 family was created to bring the best zonal weighting technologies to golfers of all levels,” said Tom Olsavsky, VP of Research & Development at COBRA Golf.
“Through improved material innovation and research we were able to design a stronger, lighter CarbonTrac structure that creates the perfect combination of adjustable low CG and high inertia. Something that is extremely hard to do. Thanks to the R&D team at COBRA Golf, golfers will discover the best in distance, forgiveness and precision in the F6 metalwoods.”
