New for 2011 - Cobra S3 and S3 Max irons
by Dominic Pedler
May 2011

Behind the fashionable dusky finish lies some highly progressive thinking in terms of sweetspot design. In particular, the latest evolution of the ‘9- points’ face concept that aims to match the shape of the effective hitting area through the set to the actual strike patterns of most golfers. According to research, it’s only in the short irons that the expected circular sweetspot is relevant, with the ideal ‘high- COR’ zone morphing to a more horizontal pattern as we move down through the set, with an almost elliptical ‘high toe’ shape for the longest irons.

“Each S3 irons is optimized based on these results, so golfers know they’ll be getting what they need from every club,” explains Tom Preece, Cobra’s Vice President of R&D. Cobra’s first techie-yet-trendy offering since its high-profile tie-up with Puma certainly lives up to its hype – and includes a super-forgiving S3 Max version in a choice of irons or hybrid/iron combo set.
