Cobra gets most of its notice as a clubmaker for the drivers, fairway metals, hybrids and irons they produce. But company officials say they deserve props for the wedges they put out. Such as the about-to-be-released Tour Trusty.
Developed with feedback from Cobra Tour professionals Rickie Fowler, Ian Poulter, Lexi Thompson and Jonas Blixt, the Tour Trusty is made of cast 8620 carbon steel and boasts a teardrop-shaped, non-offset head that is designed to provide first-rate alignment and look at address.
According to Tom Preece, vice president of research and development at Cobra, the edges and volume of the these wedges’ grooves have been maximized to the USGA-allowable limit, while the new Tour notch K-Grind offers heel and toe relief for what he describes as “Tour-trusted versatility” around the green.
These wedges also employ Cobra’s proprietary Variable Feed Rate milling, which consists of two depths of cut to maximize spin on even the shortest shots.
The Tour Trusty comes in two finishes – Tour Matte Satin and Tour Matte Black PVD – and is available in both right- and left-handed, from 48 to 64 degrees with a variety of bounce options. They come with True Temper Dynamic Gold S200 shafts stock as well as Golf Pride New Decade MultiCompound Whiteout grips.
