Cobra Introduces S2 Max Irons

While we wait for the sale to Puma to conclude, here’s the latest from Cobra:

Cobra Golf unveils the new high-performance Cobra S2 Max in both iron and iron-hybrid integrated sets. While both sets are designed for maximum forgiveness and high launch for mid- to high-handicap players, the S2 Max Iron-Hybrid Set features Baffler-style hybrids that provide proper distance gapping throughout the set for players who prefer hitting forgiving hybrids over long irons.

The new Cobra S2 Max Irons and Iron-Hybrid Set are truly the ultimate in super game-improvement clubs, said Brian Zender, General Manager of Cobra Golf. The combination of the Baffler-inspired hybrids and low-profile, wide-sole irons in the S2 Max Iron-Hybrid Set provides superior forgiveness and accuracy. The iron-hybrid set is also designed to provide consistent distance gaps to promote reliable distance from each club in the set. The fact that the Cobra S2 Max line received a Gold Award in the 2010 Golf Digest Hot List is a testament to its superior performance and forgiveness. The S2 Max was also named category leader for Look, Sound and Feel, which speaks to the quality of these game-improvement clubs. Golfers will experience the highest level of forgiveness that Cobra offers and will play with more confidence from the fairway and rough.

For golfers who prefer the increased forgiveness of hybrids to hit long shots, the Cobra S2 Max Iron-Hybrid Set is offered with hybrids as long-iron replacements. The Baffler-style hybrids are ideal for mid- to high-handicap players seeking maximum forgiveness in a set. The clubface features Cobras exclusive 9 Point Face Technology, which helps increase ball speeds on shots hit across the face. The iron-hybrid set offers consistent distance gapping from one club to the next throughout the set, so the transition from iron to hybrids provides consistent, reliable distances.

The Cobra S2 Max Iron-Hybrid Integrated Set has been specifically designed and tested to achieve correct and consistent distance gaps between clubs, said Tom Preece, Vice President of Research & Development for Cobra Golf. “The set comes pre-customized with hybrids and irons, so players don’t have to choose which irons need to be replaced by hybrids. In addition, the hybrids were designed utilizing the technology of our No. 1-selling Baffler hybrid and provide the superior forgiveness, accuracy and versatility that mid- to high-handicap golfers desire.
