Cobra 3D Printed putters review

Another option for Cobra’s 2024 putter line-up, the 3D Printed range is certainly going to catch the eye. If you want something similar, then the Vintage range of putters might be for you. Keep reading for our Cobra 3D Printed putters review.

The First Look

3D printing is something that’s been associated with Cobra for a long time. The original King 3D Printed putters are pretty iconic and the new range builds on that. You’ll find printed cartridge in the heads of these putters, but it’s not quite as noticeable as the previous 3D models. Personally, I’m a fan of that. But no make no mistake, these are still striking to look at.

The Tech

The first thing of note you’ll find in these putters is the Descending Loft Technology. This tech provides players with four planes of loft, descending from the top to the bottom of the face (4, 3, 2, 1) in one-degree increments. This unique design ensures an optimal launch on every stroke, while producing unparalleled end-over-end roll performance.

The technological advancements in the 3D Printed lineup extends into a multi-material construction featuring a carbon fibre crown, 3D printed lattice cartridge, a milled 6061 aerospace grade aluminium face insert, and metal injection moulded body made from 304 stainless steel. The exceptionally high MOI design reduces face twisting and improves stability on mishits. Additionally, the 3D Printed line introduces adjustable sole weighting, offering players the flexibility to customise their putter’s head weight and feel with five different weights (5g, 10g, 15g, 20g, 25g) that can be changed easily.

“Cobra was the first company in golf to utilise 3D printing in golf club and putter design. Our new 3D Printed family is the most advanced yet and sets the standard for putter technology and performance.” said Jose Miraflor, VP Marketing & Product Architecture at Cobra

The bunkered Verdict

Just like the Cobra Vintage putter range, I’m very fond of these. The variety of shapes is great, particularly the more classic blade shape you find in the Grandsport.

The Descending Loft Technology works very well, you really do see the ball rolling end over end, which is exactly what you want in a putter.

Although it wouldn’t be something I used, the option of an armlock shaft and grip adds an extra bonus to these. It was good fun to try it out, and might just be an option for someone looking for something a little bit different.

Personally, the feel of the Vintage range was more up my street. The 3D printed range is fairly firm, which will be great for some, but it was a little too much for me. As well as that, the shapes in the Vintage range were more to my eye. Again, it’s all personal preference. You might find the complete opposite is true.

Saying that, these are a great line of putters, and certainly an appealing option for many players.
