Through a relationship with CASIS (Center for Advancement of Science in Space), Cobra Puma Golf continue to push the boundaries in golf by presenting their driver reinforced by TeXtreme, Cobra King Ltd.

According to Mike Yagley, Director Innovation & Research at Cobra Golf, the use of TeXtreme spread tows reduced the crown weight by 20% which is a significant amount of weight that has been relocated to make the club head much more efficient at impact.

By making a lighter and stronger crown, the weight can be redistributed to the correct areas of the club head making it deliver better mass properties. Thus longer, straighter shots every time. and then, more distance through higher launch, less spin and more ball speed.

TeXtreme is a carbon fiber material based on using spread tows instead of yarns to achieve materials that are used to produce ultra light weight and high-performance composite products. Companies utilizing this technology achieve better properties on weight, stiffness, strength, etc. compared to those using other conventional carbon fiber materials.

Several sports have seen the use of TeXtreme make an impact on performance, among others, Formula 1 racing, Americas Cup, NASCAR, Le Mans, ice hockey, bicycles, tennis and surf boards.
