Equipment releases from Cobra, Nike, Antigua:
Cobra Golf has released the new Cobra S2 iron series. There are two models. The S2 are game-improvement irons made with lightweight materials and more weight pushed low in the heel and toe of the club to increase forgiveness and help golfers get the ball in the air.
The S2 comes with a lightweight graphite or steel shaft for $744 (steel) or $872 (graphite).
The S2 Forged is for the better player and has a more narrow shape. Made from forged carbon steel to provide soft feel, the cavity back irons are designed, Cobra says, to allow golfers to work the ball while providing forgiveness on off-center hits. The irons come with a steel shaft and a suggested retail price of $985.
