King Cobra LTD


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

My Cobra/Puma rep stopped by yesterday to show me the new King Cobra LTD line-up. All I can say is that these clubs are simply amazing!!

 

I hit the Pro model of the LTD driver. The ball comes off like a missile! The driver has a unique muted sound not found in previous models (it reminded me of the S9-1 Pro). The driver sets up perfectly. In the 9.5*F setting, I could not get enough backspin to produce the launch I like. However, the ball comes off the face and when you look up, the ball is already 200 yards out. The Pro model was extremely easy to work both ways. The Aldila Tour Rogue stock shaft was just fine...easy to load and kicks at the right time through the hitting area. There isn't a lot to say about the Spaceport. It was cool to see the inside of the club but that was about it. Then again, you don't hit the ball with the bottom of the club.

 

On to the fairway wood...my personal nemesis. I loved the look and the way the club set up at address. The head was a little big to my liking (I still have the S9-1 Pro fairway in my bag). However, the feel and control of the club was outstanding! The ball comes off the face similar to the driver...super hot!

 

Now the irons...my favorite!!!! The CB/MB irons we stupid easy to hit. Easy to work both ways with a great trajectory. I am not a huge fan of the C-Taper, personally. The club felt too heavy and wasn't as smooth as a KBS Tour would be. Still, the shaft worked and produced amazing results. Did I forget to mention the ball takes off on impact? What ever the process Cobra did to enhance these irons was impeccable. The irons will definitely make it into my bag the second they are released.

 

All in all, the new King Cobra LTD line-up is second to none! My only hope is that Cobra takes the improvements to the irons and applies them to the Tour Trusty wedges. They would be outstanding!!!! I am not a fan of the stock grip. The Lamkin UTx isn't found in a ton of bags and was surprised they would use such a firm grip as a stock option...oh, well that is what custom options are for.

 

A big thank you goes out to my Cobra/Puma rep and to Cobra/Puma. They have taken technology to a whole new level. These clubs are the real deal, folks.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and the pictures. The address position/footprint of both driver and fairway in your third picture look superb.

I understand why companies repaint shafts to make the club look "sexier" and appeal to the common buyer, but it's still frustrating that they repaint a Rogue to match the LTD black/orange color scheme. That's probably my one and only complaint with their new driver and I am extremely excited to see it in person and give it a hit on the range. Can't wait for demo day!

If you don't mind me asking what handicap are you? or better question would be is your iron striking a strength of yours?
[/quote]

Guys, I am a club pro. My current index rests at +0.8. I only post scores from the tournaments I play in. As far as my ball striking goes? I don't miss many shots off of the center of the club. They may not end up where I want them to all the time, but that is the fun challenge of golf. It's the game that cannot be beat.

I did get a chance to hit the TEC irons. They look great as well. Much thicker top line and set up well just from looking at them. I did not hit these.

Is Cobra considering releasing a new line of wedges next year to go along with the King series?
[/quote]

From my understanding there is going to be a new wedge line released as well. I am not aware of the timing. Most likely at the PGA Show in January

Thanks for sharing, great to hear some thoughts on these! Can't wait to check them out in person. How would you say the woods profile was compared to the Bio Cell or Fly Z fairway profile?
[/quote]

I would say the profile is similar to the Amp Cell line. Slightly bigger back to front but still has the same face of the Fly-Z. My 5 wood is a BiO Cell +. I loved the compact profile of that line.

Good to know! Actually hit the AMP Cell 3 Wood the best when I struck it well but I'm more consistent with the Bio Cell so that made the bag. Can't wait to try the LTD out though, thanks again for sharing!

Something I wanted to add that I heard from a rep that I'm curious to see is the finish is not supposed to wear off. They said there test club has hit 1000s of balls and no wear spot?!

Not worried about wear spot from 1000 hits, in fact it would be cool to have a quarter size (just being realistic) wear spot on the face.

Worried about wear on the sole. Were those 1000 shots teed up? Or on crappy muni turf?
[/quote]

I dont know how they were hit, just putting it out there if some guys were turned off by any wear issues they might have experienced in the past w different Manufacturers.

I was told the same thing...it won't wear off like other manufactures in the past.
