King Cobra have upped their ante in the never-ending race to bring the longest, straightest-hitting and most forgiving drivers to the golfing market place.
The new King Cobra Speed LD and Speed Pro Drivers they have launched are the longest, straightest, and most forgiving metal woods ever offered by them, they say.
“LD stands for Limit Dimensions, which means we’ve pushed this club head to the very edge of USGA size regulations,” Jeff Harmet, the President of Cobra Golf announced on Tuesday.
“By maximizing the length and width, we have achieved a ‘Moment of Inertia’ (MOI) value of 5,000 which is as high as any all-titanium driver in the market today.
“What separates the Speed LD from other high MOI drivers, though, is the fact”,” he added, “that it has the largest face area in golf and it has an exclusive ‘Speed Tuning’ technology which is designed to generate faster ball speeds for all player types.”
The King Cobra Speed LD drivers feature the maximum USGA allowable club head length and width.
With a 5,000 inertia value, Speed LD drivers have among the highest MOI of any all-titanium driver.
In addition, it features the largest face in golf with a milled dual rhombus face insert for maximum accuracy and distance across the Hotter 9 Points.
Speed LD Drivers also include the exclusive Speed Tuning technology which optimizes ball speeds for all player types.
The Speed LD Drivers will begin shipping on March 1 with a suggested retail price of $375.
It will come in the following options:

King Cobra Speed LD Fairway Metals:
The Speed LD Fairway Metals feature an extended profile from front to back, and an increased crown slope.
This results in a deeper and lower center of gravity and higher MOI for high, draw-biased trajectory, and more distance and consistency from all turf conditions.

King Cobra Speed Pro Fairway Metals:
Speed Pro Fairway Metals R&D was also driven by Tour player feedback.
These metals provide a lower profile for tight fairways, neutral weighting, high launch and pro spin conditions. The result is optimal distance for extreme ball speed players. The thin, 275 laser-welded maraging steel face insert maximizes ball speed and the integrated swing weight screw offers correct swing weight adjustments at factory. Speed Pro Fairways are available in 13, 15 and 18 degree lofts with a variety of flex, grip and shaft options.
Speed Pro Fairways will have a suggested retail price of $250 for graphite and $225 for steel.
Speed LD and Speed Pro drivers and fairways are designed to optimize each golfer’s personal ball speed by tuning the head, shaft and grip to specific player profiles.

Andrew Coltart admits he’s concerned about the growing trend of long hitters carving up golf courses.
The tournament was the first European Tour event since the sporting shutdown caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
The 23-year-old had started the final round three strokes behind his fellow American.
Poulter is six shots back heading into the final round.
The Englishman produced an excellent sand save on the last to see him finish the day at 10 under par.
The 44-year-old’s last appearance on the PGA Tour was in mid-February.
The biennial match between the United States and Europe will now take place in September 2021 at Whistling Straits.
Organisers hope to stage the event in September 2021.
