A golf driver made by Cobra Puma Golf has reduced weight due to using carbon fiber reinforcement in the crown.

Using TeXtreme in the crown reduced the club’s total weight by 20%, making the head much more efficient at impact, according to Mike Yagley, director, innovation & research at Cobra Golf.
 
Adding the carbon fiber allowed for more weight to be repositioned. By making a lighter, stronger crown weight can be redistributed to the correct areas of the club head, making it deliver better mass properties.

 TeXtreme is based on using spread tows instead of yarns to achieve materials that are used to produce more light weight composite products.
