What we say...

Tech:

The King wedges are made from 8620 carbon steel for soft feel on both full swings and touch shots. An improved muscle back design places more mass behind the hitting zone to further improve feel. Face grooves are 100% CNC milled and wider on the weaker lofts to improve spin consistency between lofts, variable face roughness is right on the edge of the rules for greater shot control around the greens.

 

Our verdict:

Wedge head shapes will always be a bone of contention. What’s right in one person’s eyes is just plain wrong in another’s. Cobra though insist they’ve worked really closely with Rickie Fowler, Jonas Blixt and Lexi Thompson to get them a wedge they love. Between our testers Chris Ryan loved the slighter rounder profile head while Simon wasn’t quite so keen. Put the profile aside there is absolutely no faulting the King’s performance. They are beautifully made, they feel great and they can spin both full and half shots with the best of them. We have it on good authority the trend on tour is use wider soled wedges particularly in the higher lofts. Players are looking to improve consistency by removing the wrists from their short game motion, to avoid the big hits and misses associated with hitting high risk flop shots.    

 

Bottom line: 

We really liked how the different sole grinds don’t impact seriously on the head shape. Which means you can choose two or three different lofts with sole grinds that don’t match but you actually get a wedge that looks very similar at address. There’s no doubting the King’s quality they are superb, our favourite set up was a versatile grind in the lower lofts and wide low sole for extra help in the higher lofts which would also be used from sand.
