Cobra Trusty Rusty Wedge

From GOLF Magazine ClubTest 2012 (June, 2012)
Category: Wedges
Price: $120

WE TESTED: 49°/tri bounce, 51°/tb, 53°/tb, 55°/tb, 57°/tb, 59°/tb, 61°/tb with True Temper Dynamic Gold S200 steel shaft
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: The non-plated head is 7 percent softer than a chrome wedge and rusts over time. The “tri-bounce” sole (higher bounce angle in the center, with heel and toe relief) adds versatility from various turf conditions and lies. The grip is longer than standard with less taper for a more consistent feel when a player chokes down.

OUR TESTERS SAY: Unique look and design offers an appealing, yet different, option.

PROS
PLAYABILITY: Sole design works well from uneven lies and does a nice job from rough and sand; good trajectory control on full shots.
DISTANCE CONTROL: Easy to gauge yardages on full shots; testers get plenty of spin from rough or sand for predictable performance.
FEEL: The sensation at impact tells you immediately how you hit it; steady and balanced throughout the swing, with a somewhat light feel.
LOOK: Black steel shaft and unfinished bronze head sets it apart from the pack; face frames the ball well at address.

CONS
A few testers say impact feel isn’t quite as soft as some others; a small minority seeks more consistent distances.

From Golf Magazine (December 2011)
Trusty Rusty wedges are made of non-chromed 8620 carbon steel, which rusts over time as the finish naturally wears off. An aggressive groove design that’s created through a special machining process optimizes spin for maximum shot control, while the “Tri-bounce” sole design (higher bounce in the center, less in the heel and toe areas) helps playability. Lamkin 3Gen grips feature a longer, less tapered design for added maneuverability and greater shock absorption. Available in a rust, black PVD or satin finish. An oversize Big Trusty Rusty wedge (10 percent larger) is available for those who want a bit more forgiveness.
