Any chance puma releases some Cobra clothes? I would love some polos with that cobra logo on them.

+1. i really wish i could 'like' your post more than once.
i have puma apparel as a part of my wardrobe (and enjoy the styles/colors). add in the cobra 'snake' logo either on the sleeve, or as a stand-alone dedicated line, and i'm first in line to buy.

GREAT IDEA wldchld!

How many product releases do you generally have planned out? And how often does something happen that causes you to change the course completely?

On a similar note, Taylormade has obviously been pushing the heck out of low forward CG and higher loft - how does Cobra feel about that design philosophy?

Are there any plans to release more color customization with the Bio Cell lineup? (something like custom painted drivers?)

Also, having hit your s2 and s3 drivers, what are some new advancements in Cobra's e9 face? I found the technology to be forgiving and would love to hear about how this technology has improved.

Thanks!

I am going to throw this one out there again since I am interested to hear the answer:

My Amp Cell is BY FAR the most forgiving driver I have ever hit. Thank you Cobra!

My miss tends to be out toward the toe, can you explain how your e9 (elliptical) face technology helps improve ball speed and dispersion on off-center hits?

We have seen limited releases for the US Masters & US Open. Any chance the other two majors get something similiar?
[/quote]

[color=#000000]Thanks for your interest in the LE's. We think they are a nice way to bring some of the exitement around the Majors to the Cobra brand! While we would like to create additional releases, we still want to ensure that they are in demand by golfers. What do you think golfers would be more excited about? An Open Championship or PGA Championship release? BTW- What country to you live in? -Jose Miraflor[/color][/size]

Cobra is advertising Bio-Cell design and the Venollum crown as weight saving technologies designed to allow more weight to be located low and back for increased MOI. Why did Cobra opt for a low and back CG and not low and forward like some competitors?

Also is there any chance of a limited release of solid color heads? I like the colors, but I'm just not a fan of the two tone look.

What improvements have been made in the Bio cell line of woods over last years Amp cell line? The Amp Cell's seemed to be a huge success for Cobra as they performed very well.

[color=#000000]The BiO CELL family of metals features many new, game-changing improvements that result in Distance Gains and Consistency.[/color]

[color=#000000]The New BiO CELL E9 face features Cell optimized areas on the face where our engineers were able to remove Titamium to help the face flex more, which increases the COR Area. This faster COR area will keep your ball speeds up when you hit it off center. This new face area, combined with a lighter hosel structure, frees up over 6 grams of weight to reposition lower and further back in the head to reduce spin, deliver more speed and improve launch. Simply said MORE Distance! A CELL Pattern was utilized in the crown area to free up more weight to contribute to the LOW & BACK CG area. [/color][/size]



[color=#000000][size=3]The BiO CELL+ Driver features the same CELL weighting tehcnologies as BiO CELL with an added multi-material construction. The new VENOLLUM crown is made of a new, lighter alloy that helps to free up even more weight to make this driver the lowest CG driver that we have created. Lower CG = More Speed, Lower Spin, and MORE Distance. [/size][/color]

[color=#000000][size=3]ALL the BC metals feature simple yet effective adjustability thorugh MyFLY8 and SmartPad tehcnologies. MyFly8 adds one more loft setting and one more draw setting for which to maximize you trajectory and distance with. SmartPad which is our patented technology delivers a square face no matter the loft/trajectory setting you choose. [/size][/color]

[size=2][color=#000000]Many may overlook the face that being able to tune your long game (fairways & hybrids) to evenly gap between your driver and longest iron is Key to attaching today's longer golf courses. You can adjust to any distance, any course, any condition any swing with MyFly8 and Smartpad.- Jose Miraflor[/color][/size]

Will Greg Norman's return to Cobra be influencing any new equipment? ie any "Shark"-line themed clubs.

any plans on making 'normal' fitted hats for guys that like to shape their hats instead of the flat brim? I know you have the tech hat but they are adjustable

Thanks for the chat. I alternate playing an AMP Cell 10.5 driver with stock stiff Fuse shaft and a TM SLDR set at 11.5 degrees with Rifle 5.5. Although not as adjustable, my longest drives always come with the Cobra. It seems to stay airborne quite a bit longer. Is there a design parameter at work there that is every bit as effective as the forward CG loft-up philosophy touted by TM?

    • In-hand photos of 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus, Stealth 2, Stealth 2 HD drivers + fairways woods
      Check out our front page launch stories here and here. 
       
      What you need to know: For the first time, carbon is the most prevalent material by volume in a TaylorMade driver, and more carbon equals better performance, says the company. Last year, TaylorMade debuted a 60X Carbon Twist Face. With TaylorMade Stealth 2, engineers are bringing carbon to more of the golf club — and unveiling a new-and-improved Carbon Twist Face in the process. Stealth 2 Plus (low spin, most workable) Stealth 2, and Stealth 2 HD (draw bias, high launch, most forgiving) drivers make up the Stealth 2 family.

      Stealth 2 HD



       
      What you need to know: Breakthrough movable weight technologies and versatile designs are the hallmarks of the 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 fairway woods. Stealth 2 Plus is branded as “three fairway woods in one” owing to the unique performance characteristics afforded by the 50-gram sole weight. Stealth 2 features a slightly lower profile 3D carbon crown than Stealth. This moves CG down and away from the toe with more weight in the rear of the club for higher launch and MOI. Ultra-high MOI Stealth 2 HD features an oversized 200cc head and low-profile sole, creating an easy-to-hit, draw-biased club.
