Cobra Rides The Rails

The new F7 fairways and hybrids from Cobra Golf use an updated version of the equipment maker’s iconic Baffler Rail System as well as other new technologies to provide what company engineers describe as the ultimate in distance, control and forgiveness.

Consider, for example, the F7 fairways, which come in 3-4F, 5-6F and 7-8F versions.

They feature progressive rail heights that are shallower in the 3-4 woods and thicker as they move into the 7-8s, with the front of the rails designed to improve turf forgiveness as the backs are made to help the club glide out of the turf more smoothly.

In addition, these fairways possess a pair of movable weights that can be positioned front or back so that players may customize the trajectories their clubs produce. A forged 475 stainless steel face insert is fashioned to work with a 17-4 stainless steel body to maximize distance and ball speed, while Cobra’s MyFly8 system lets golfers find the loft positions that best suit them.

As for the King 7 hybrids, they, too, boast the Baffler Rail System and also come with a fixed back weight that is included to improve forgiveness and accuracy. A thin, 455 stainless steel face is designed to provide maximum ball speed, and the MyFly8 system is added to give golfers the ability to manipulate lofts.

These same tour-proven technologies will provide golfers with the perfect blend of distance and control.”
