Drivers have been adjustable for over a decade. Woods and hybrids soon followed, along with putters. But now Cobra has revealed the world’s first adjustable iron.
The King Utility Iron is a hollow body club that offers multiple loft settings in a single head. It is available in a 3-iron, featuring a large sole with a hollow head, and is packed with CobraGolf’s game-changing metalwood technologies including MyFly8 that lets you easily adjust the loft to best fit your games.
The 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 centre 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 revelation in the King Utility 3-iron is the use of MyFly8 Technology in an iron. A first for Cobra and a first for golf, as it affords golfers an ability to fine-tune their designed launch conditions from a 3 iron at 21° down to a 2 iron at 18°.
“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 (RRP: £149 steel; £169 graphite), available in RH only, will be available May 1, 2016. It comes equipped with a Steel KBS C-Taper Lite shaft in X-stiff or Stiff flexes (£149); or a Graphite Aldila Rogue Black 85g in X-stiff, Stiff or Regular flexes (£169). Loft range: 18o, 18.5o, 18.5o draw, 19.5o, 19.5o draw, 21.5o, 21.5o draw and 22o.
