Introducing the Cobra Fly-Z Fairway Woods and Hybrids

November 4, 2014

Featuring all-new Speed Channel Technology, visible technology to minimize face thickness and increase ball speed on off-center hits

COBRA Golf today announced the release of its new Fly-Z fairway woods and hybrids featuring all-new Speed Channel technology for more speed across the face and increased distance off miss-hits, and zone weighting in the head for a low, deep center of gravity (CG).

More distance and increased forgiveness is derived from COBRA’s exclusive Speed Channel, an engineered trench surrounding the face that helps to minimize face thickness and provide increased ball speeds across the face that result in incredible distance. The thin, high-strength 465 stainless steel face plate insert utilized in the fairway woods measure 3023 mm2, and the Fly-Z sweet spot is now 20% larger and 18% thinner than previous models.

“Performance advancements in our fairways and hybrids also come with Zone Weighting which delivered improved CG positioning both low and centered behind the center of the face area,” said Jose Miraflor, Director of Product Marketing for COBRA Golf. ”While these internal technologies are not visible to the golfer, performance gains can be easily noticed and easily attributed to the Speed Channel face.”

Crown Zone Weighting has been added to the Fly-Z products by removing weight from the crown and repositioning it low and back in the head for a low, deep CG. Golfers are now able to use a fairway wood and hybrid to achieve extreme forgiveness on off-center hits and excellence distance off the face.

Fly-Z+ Fairway Woods feature a tour-inspired compact head designed to deliver maximum distance from the tee or the fairway with accuracy and control. By combining the stainless steel tour head and the new Speed Channel Face with front CG Zone Weighting, the Fly-Z+ provides golfers with even more distance from their fairway wood. The Fly-Z+ fairway wood also features COBRA Golf’s proven technologies including Forged E9 Zone Face Weighting, and MyFly8TM and SmartPadTM which allows the golfer to choose from eight simple, adjustable loft/trajectory settings to dial in maximum distance, manage trajectory and optimize yardage gaps on any course. SmartPad delivers a square face at address regardless of loft/trajectory settings.

Featuring a low, back CG placement, the Fly-Z Fairways and Hybrids are designed for forgiveness and deliver the optimum combination of a low center of gravity and higher ball speed. This position combined with the new Speed Channel Face provides even more ball speed and greater distance on off-center hits. The Fly-Z Fairways feature a high strength steel insert that allows for a larger, thinner face, which enables more face flex for faster ball speeds, longer distances and higher trajectory.

For the golfer who is looking for easy distance from anywhere, Fly-Z XL fairways and hybrids incorporate a low, back CG, Crown Zone Weighting with an offset head design to maximize launch and feature COBRA’s revolutionary Speed Channel Face for more forgiveness and increased distance from the fairway.
