Carlsbad, CA - There isn't much designers can do to change the basic design concepts of a golf club, but there are things manufacturers can do that will allow you to change the characteristics of the club itself. Enter the new King Utility 3 Iron from Cobra Golf.
Cobra has long been known for being a tad bit edgy when it comes to golf club designs and with the new KING Utility Iron the company has pushed the envelope a bit. This club features an adjustable hollow body utility iron that offers multiple loft settings in a single club. The KING Utility is available in a 3-iron, featuring a large sole with a hollow head, and is packed with COBRA Golf's game-changing metalwood technologies including MyFly8 that allows golfers to seamlessly adjust the loft to best fit their games.
Cobra says KING Utility Iron provides the feel and performance of an iron, combined with the forgiveness and slightly higher flight of a hybrid. The club's 17-4 hollow body design and a new 455ss L-Cup Face, combined with its 67 gram tungsten weight strategically positioned low and back in the head, deliver optimal Center of Gravity (CG) and high MOI. The new L-Cup face design produces increased speed and higher launch, the key performance benefits golfers look for in a utility iron.
The true game-changer in the KING Utility 3-iron is the use of MyFly8 Technology in an iron. A first for COBRA and a first for golf, this proprietary technology affords golfers an ability to fine-tune their designed launch conditions from a 3 iron at 21 (degrees) down to a 2 iron at 18 (degrees).
"This club is perfect for the golfer whose last iron stops at 4 and needs a 3i, or the golfer whose longest iron stops at 3i and needs 2i distance somewhere throughout the round. The KING Utility iron allows a player to perfectly gap his long iron game and offers three draw settings to fine tune trajectory," said Tom Olsavsky, Vice President of R&D, COBRA Golf. "We designed this Utility iron with Rickie Fowler in mind - he currently uses this iron at courses he deems a match for this style of play."
The KING Utility iron is set to retail for $199 (steel) and $219 (graphite). It is only available for right handed players - sorry lefties! Look for the club in your local shop in early May
