Cobra Golf announces the release of its most technologically advanced driver, the King Cobra L4V. The name stands for Limit 4 Variables because this revolutionary new driver is designed up to the limit of four USGA defined performance variables: Maximum COR (.830), maximum head dimensions (5″by <5"), maximum volume (460cc), and maximum inertia or MOI. "The L4V driver line is a direct result of Cobra's commitment to developing the industry's highest performing drivers via innovative, advanced design and technology," said Jeff Harmet, President, Cobra Golf and Titleist Clubs. L4V drivers will begin shipping on November 1, 2007. WHAT ARE THE LIMIT 4 VARIABLES? Max MOI The ultra-lightweight carbon composite crown and sole section, along with high-density tungsten back weighting, work together to shift weight low and back, generating a Moment of Inertia up to 5900. The result is that the L4V has the highest MOI of any driver Cobra has ever built Ãƒ¢â€š¬ as well as the highest allowed by the USGA. This means less clubhead twisting at impact, promoting more power and forgiveness on off-center hits. Max size Clubhead dimensions have a strict limit of 5"by <5". By taking the dimension variable to the limit, Cobra engineers pushed the weight low and back, resulting in higher launch and longer drives. Max COR Cobra's patented Dual Rhombus Face insert technology, combined with the largest face area in golf, optimizes face flex to provide maximum COR across the clubface for the ultimate in ball speedand distance. Max volume Cobra has also taken clubhead volume to the max. At 460 cubic centimeters, the L4V offers maximum power and forgiveness.
