Cobra S3 Driver E9 Face Technology

Cobra Golf recently announced the introduction of the Cobra S3 Driver and Cobra S3 Max Driver, featuring revolutionary E9 Face Technology. This patent-pending new technology expands Cobra’s Sweet Zone by 30 percent, taking into account all areas where golfers hit the ball on the clubface, to make it the smartest clubface in the market.

“The new Cobra S3 Drivers incorporate unique new face shape technologies that result in a 30% larger Sweet Zone to promote superior distance and accuracy,” says Brian Zender, Senior Vice President and General Manager of COBRA-PUMA GOLF. “Through observation and intelligent design, our engineers provide golfers the first new driver technology that mirrors their typical hit patterns, giving them more distance, accuracy and forgiveness.”

E9 Face Technology™ Most clubfaces are designed with a circular sweet spot around the center of the face, the assumption being that the center of the club is where golfers hit the ball on every shot. Cobra tested golfers hitting more than 25,000 shots and discovered something different. They hit shots across the face in a canted, elliptical pattern that wasn’t always in the center. In fact, 99% of shots hit by golfers were in this elliptical pattern from the low heel to the high toe. So we redesigned the clubface to take advantage of this phenomenon – resulting in Cobra’s new E9 Face Technology with a 30% larger Sweet Zone.

“We looked at tens of thousands of hits across the driver clubface and saw a distinct ball impact pattern from the low heel to high toe,” says Tom Preece, Vice President of Research and Development for Cobra Golf. “E9 Face Technology maximizes distance and accuracy from any point on the clubface, especially where golfers hit most often.”

COBRA S3 DRIVER The Cobra S3 Driver’s 6-4 titanium clubhead combines with the all-new E9 Face Technology, to create a 30% larger Sweet Zone on the clubface, which in turn provides golfers with more distance, accuracy and forgiveness off the tee. The new taller, elliptical face shape encompasses ball impact patterns, to increase ball speed where golfers hit most often.

The Cobra S3 Driver also features Cobra’s popular Adjustable Flight Technology (AFT), which allows golfers to easily dial in their optimal ball flight for maximum distance and accuracy.
