COBRA® Golf Finishes The Revised 2020 Major Season Strong With Stunning Le King Mim Wedge

CARLSBAD, CA – COBRA® Golf unveiled today its Limited-Edition KING MIM Wedge, inspired by the instantly recognizable flowers that surround the most talked about three-hole stretch in all of golf. Even though the flowers may not be in bloom, this wedge pays homage to what has traditionally been the year’s first major and allows golfers to take part in the excitement that this major continues to inspire despite its new calendar date.

Building off the popularity of the brand’s first fully Metal-Injection-Molded (MIM) 304 stainless steel head construction, COBRA’S Limited-Edition MIM Wedge features an eye-catching vintage copper PVD finish with paint-filled intricate laser etching that call to mind Azaleas, White Dogwoods & Golden Bells.

A New Standard in Wedge Manufacturing
MIM manufacturing reduces the amount of post-process polishing to create the most precise shape.  Unlike traditional forging or casting processes, the wedges are formed from a 304 stainless steel powder and sintered at an extremely high temperature (1340°), resulting in a tighter grain structure and the softest feel the industry’s ever seen.

Versatile Tour Grind
Inspired and validated by Rickie Fowler, the Versatile grind is an excellent all-around grind for medium to firm turf conditions. Additional heel & toe relief provides versatility to play shots with an open or closed face, while the sole notch design keeps the leading edge close to the ground without adding bounce.

Precision Milled Grooves for Maximum Spin Performance
A fully CNC milled face maximizes surface roughness and delivers precise lofts and groove shapes to optimize trajectory and spin performance.

Play Smarter Golf with COBRA CONNECT
A smart grip with an embedded sensor allows golfers to track their accuracy and short game improvements using the Arccos Caddie app on a Smart Device.

To complete the design, the wedge features a custom designed green/yellow KBS Hi-Rev 125 shaft and Lamkin Crossline Connect grip and will be offered in a 56-degree loft in right-hand only.


Nippon Shaft Marks 10th Anniversary Of Its Popular MODUS³ Series Of Steel Shafts

CARLSBAD, CA – Nippon Shaft will celebrate the 10th anniversary of its popular N.S.PRO MODUS³ series of steel shafts by releasing a limited-edition N.S.PRO MODUS³ Tour 115 Black model.

The company will sell only 2,000 sets of the shafts, which will feature Luxury Black plating and a silver logo print with the words “10th Anniversary Limited,” according to company officials. The shafts will be released on Nov. 12 and be sold exclusively on the aftermarket.

Since 2010, the MODUS³ series has accumulated more than 200 victories on professional tours worldwide, including the 2016 British Open and the 2017 Masters. Through 2019, 6 million sets had been sold as either custom or stock options to all major OEMs and via independent club fitters, according to the company.

The MODUS³ series was released on professional tours in 2010. A Nippon Shaft representative began traveling to PGA Tour events week-to-week to work with players to develop products to fit their needs and those of high-level amateurs.

Eventually, variations of those prototypes were developed for the retail market. As a result, the company developed steel shafts weighing 130, 120, 115 and 105 grams in various flexes.

Prior to developing the MODUS³ series, Nippon Shaft created the revolutionary N.S. PRO 950GH, the industry’s first credible sub-100 gram steel shaft. The 950GH proved to be a hit not only with consumers but with LPGA Tour members, who have recorded hundreds of victories with the shaft over the last 20 years.

Nippon Shaft products are available globally either as stock or custom shafts in many of the world’s top iron brands.  In addition, Nippon Shaft products are available through Nippon Shaft’s dedicated global club fitter network.
