ZL Encore Driver is about Distance and Choice with Black and White Offerings
(COBRA) – This fall, COBRA is bringing golfers everywhere even longer and more forgiving drives with the ZL Encore Driver. Featuring E9 Face TechnologyTM with dual roll, the ZL Encore Driver gives ultimate performance to golfers of all abilities.
“The ZL Encore Driver uses a combination of technologies to provide added distance, accuracy and forgiveness to golfers’ drives,” said Tom Preece, Vice President of Club Research and Development at COBRA PUMA GOLF. “E9 Face Technology uses an elliptical face to give golfers added distance and accuracy from any point on the clubface while the new canted bulge with dual roll design provides more distance and accuracy to shots hit above and below the centerline.”
In addition to E9 Face Technology with dual roll, the ZL Encore Driver features an advanced multi-material construction, Adjustable Flight TechnologyTM, Golf Pride® Multi-Compound grip and Tour-proven Fujikura® Motore F1 and F3 shafts.
COBRA first offered consumers a choice with two cosmetic options in the S3 Driver and continues to do so with the ZL Encore Driver. Coming in two cosmetic options, the ZL Encore Driver is available in an all white cosmetic and a black/electric yellow cosmetic. The all white cosmetic makes the ZL Encore Driver the third white driver in market from COBRA while the black cosmetic features electric yellow details for an added pop of attitude.
E9 Face Technology with dual roll
COBRA’s E9 Face Technology with dual roll utilizes an elliptical shape face that gives the ZL Encore Driver a 30% larger Sweet Zone, resulting in more distance, accuracy and forgiveness in shots hit from the low heel to high toe. COBRA tested golfers hitting more than 25,000 shots and discovered that the majority of golfers hit shots across the face in this canted, elliptical pattern. We redesigned our clubface to use this phenomenon to the golfers’ advantage. We’ve added a new canted bulge with dual roll to now provide added distance and accuracy to the shots hit above and below the centerline.
COBRA ZL Encore Driver
The ZL Encore Driver features an advanced multi-material construction utilizing a carbon fiber crown and sole with a 5% larger titanium body and face along with a swing weight screw, resulting in optimal CG (center of gravity) and improved MOI (moment of inertia). The 6-4 Titanium clubhead body with milled semi-forged Ti Face contributes to higher balls speeds and maximum distance. The ZL Encore Driver also features COBRA’s Adjustable Flight TechnologyTM, giving golfers three simple face-angle settings (O-Open, N-Neutral and C-Closed) to optimize ball flight for increased speed and improved accuracy.
