Cobra Golf introduces new Cobra S3 line of women's golf clubs
(CARLSBAD, Calif.) - Cobra Golf announces the introduction of the Cobra S3 line of women's clubs, including S3 and S3 Max Driver, S3 Max Fairway, S3 Irons and Iron-Hybrid Set, S3 Max Irons and Iron-Hybrid Set. This new complete family of women's clubs is designed to perform powerfully and inspire confidence.
"Without a doubt, we believe the Cobra S3 line for women is the most complete, best performing line of golf clubs for women that Cobra has ever introduced," says Brian Zender, Senior Vice President and General Manager of COBRA-PUMA Golf.
That's quite a statement, considering Cobra has a long tradition of designing clubs that truly improve the games of women golfers. In 1985, it was the first manufacturer to offer graphite shafts on a complete line of woods - the Lady Cobra Woods. And while technology may change from year to year, a woman's desire to play clubs that help inspire her confidence does not. This year, Cobra has expanded its commitment to make golf more enjoyable for women by offering 100 women-only demo events across the U.S. The goal is to show female golfers how Cobra equipment is a perfect fit for their games. The 2011 Cobra line utilizes lightweight shafts, smaller and softer grips, and flatter lies to create clubs that are light yet powerful. The end result is high-performance metals and irons that are easy to hit.
COBRA S3 WOMEN'S METALS
The new Cobra S3 line of women's metals - consisting of the S3 Driver, S3 Max Driver and S3 Max Fairway for women - is all about powerful performance.
• COBRA S3 DRIVER
The Cobra S3 Driver for women is geared towards low- and mid-handicap women golfers seeking superior distance and accuracy with ball flight optimization. Made with a 6-4 titanium clubhead and precision milled face, the Cobra S3 Driver features E9 Face Technology™ that creates a 30% larger Sweet Zone™ and combines with Adjustable Flight Technology (AFT) to deliver consistently long distance and accuracy. The new taller, elliptical face shape is designed around typical ball impact patterns, resulting in increased ball speeds on off-center hits.
The Cobra S3 Driver for women (MSRP $375) is available in a 13.5° loft (right-handed only), with a Fujikura Blur TX004 women's 49g shaft, and a Cobra/Golf Pride grip.
• COBRA S3 MAX DRIVER
The Cobra S3 Max Driver for women is geared toward mid- to high-handicap women golfers who want maximum forgiveness and a high draw-biased ball flight. Just like the Cobra S3 Driver for women, the Cobra S3 Max Driver for women boasts a 6-4 titanium clubhead and precision milled face, and also features E9 Face Technology. The Cobra S3 Max for women features an offset design that helps square the clubface at impact, therefore reducing slices.
The Cobra S3 Max Driver for women (MSRP $325) is available in a 15° loft, in both right- and left-handed with a 49g Fujikura Blur TX004 women's shaft, and a Cobra/Golf Pride grip.
• COBRA S3 MAX FAIRWAY
The Cobra S3 Max Fairway is designed for mid- to high-handicap women golfers who want maximum forgiveness and a high draw-biased ball flight. It features a new larger, hotter clubface and offset design that promotes draw-biased distance with forgiveness from the fairway.
The Cobra S3 Max Fairway for women (MSRP $185) is made of 17-4 stainless steel and comes in 3, 5, 7 and 9 models. All lofts sport a 48g Fujikura Blur TX004 women's shaft and a Cobra/Golf Pride grip.
COBRA S3 and COBRA S3 MAX WOMEN'S SERIES OF IRONS
The new Cobra S3 line of women's irons and iron-hybrid sets - consisting of S3 Irons, S3 Iron-Hybrid Sets, S3 Max Irons and Cobra S3 Max Iron-Hybrids Sets for women - all aim to inspire confidence.
• COBRA S3 IRONS
The Cobra S3 Iron Set is targeted at all women golfers who want superior all-around performance. Each individual Cobra S3 Iron features a multi-material design, E9 Face Technology and a versatile stepped crescent sole.
The Cobra S3 Irons (MSRP $875) for women are available in 5-PW, GW, SW, right-handed only, with 50g Aldila NV-3 Women's flex graphite shafts and Cobra/Lamkin grips.
• COBRA S3 IRON-HYBRID SET
For women who prefer using hybrids instead of long irons and want superior all-around performance, Cobra offers Baffler-style, 17-4 stainless steel Cobra S3 Hybrids to replace the 4- through 6-irons. These easy-to-hit clubs utilize Cobra's popular Baffler technology with four-way rails on the sole, to help achieve a higher trajectory, distance and directional consistency, and more accuracy in long shots.
The Cobra S3 Iron-Hybrid (MSRP $1,000) women's set composition is 4-6 Hybrid, 7-PW, SW - all with 50g Aldila NV-3 Women's flex graphite shafts and Cobra/Lamkin grips.
• COBRA S3 MAX IRONS
The Cobra S3 Max Iron Set is targeted at mid- to high-handicap women golfers who want maximum forgiveness and high launch.
The Cobra S3 Max Irons (MSRP $635) for women are available in 5-PW, GW, SW, right-handed only, with UST-iHS graphite shafts and Cobra/Lamkin grips.
• COBRA S3 MAX IRON-HYBRID SET
Meanwhile, the Cobra S3 Max Iron-Hybrid Set for mid- and high-handicap women golfers is all about maximizing forgiveness. It makes a graceful transformation from hybrid to iron with reliable, consistent distance gapping. The 431 stainless steel irons have a low profile, which helps move the center of gravity back low and deep for a higher ball flight, and a wide sole that lends stability to help straighten shots. The 17-4 stainless steel hybrid clubheads are more forgiving, due to their larger head size and railed soles.
The Cobra S3 Iron-Hybrid (MSRP $775) women's set composition is 4-6 Hybrid, 7-PW, SW with UST-iHS graphite shafts and Cobra/Lamkin grips.
