Cobra MIM wedges 2019

Recommended Posts

I’ve seen a number of posts on these across social media, and after reading about how they are made, with the type of metal, grind, etc, these have me intrigued! Starts as a metal powder, then the finished product isn’t ground by hand, which creates variances, so each wedge has the same exact Tour grind!

Once I read “soft” in the description of the feel, and the Tour grind creating space to work under the ball, I was in!!! Looking forward to more info, and trying these once they release in April!!!

Like the shape of them. I didn’t notice when I had my set of cobra wedges, but apparently the toe is a bit higher than other brands. I like what I see.

These definitely have me intrigued. Definitely want to hit them.


Just here waiting for the “will they get bad bag chatter damage comments”

Those are really nice looking. I'm liking the grind, looks good for flop shots.

The regular King wedges have the same grind, maybe minor tweaks. I couldn’t get the leading edge where I liked it for wide open face shots. I could hit them, just took more concentration. Good wedge though for sure.

After reading more about the MIM process it is really intriguing. Wonder when the irons will follow.

That's surprising, and will put them a little farther down the list. 

The MIM process is very intriguing from an engineering proscpetive, but I'm not sure how much it helps from a performance standpoint. I'd guess the irons will follow next year some time. Again not sure on the usefulness for wedges, and I think it'd be even less on irons.

Don’t use my bad experience with the wedge to move it down your list. I am OCD about my clubs. If the smallest thing is off I want to throw it away.

Rick Shiels reviewed last years version. Not sure if he has done the 2019 offering just yet.

The most exciting part of these to me is the radial grooves that start at the sweetspot, I just think its cool and a nice visual aid for full shots. I either haven't been paying attention or I haven't really seen that anywhere else. If its the latter, I wonder how or why they are the first to do something like that.

It amuses me how these are photographed. Like many clubs there is always a focus on the graphics and backside. I get it, but I’d love to see if these have a teardrop shape and a flatter top edge.

If they’re like the previous model they are more towards teardrop. Very unique shape, unlike anything I had used.
