What we say...
The Cobra BiO CELL fairway wood features a 17-4 stainless steel body with 455 high strength steel face. This “driver-like” construction enables more face flex for faster ball speeds and a higher trajectory. It features the same hot “E9 Face Technology” found in the driver and eight adjustable loft settings to maximise distance, manage trajectory and optimise yardage gaps. BiO CELL+ also available. Both models feature MyFly adjustability and E9 face technology for a square face at address. The more compact + version features a Tour-inspired head design and a lower CG.
As reviewed in our Fairway Woods Test 2014: The + version still has a mid-size head that sits square, regardless of the loft or lie angle you present; great. It launched high with fairly low spin; great. Shorter shaft than standard aided control and distance was impressive; great. Plus, plenty of stopping power on greens. Not sure about the colours, but can’t fault shape or size. Has a nice firm feel and a mid flight.
Details: BiO CELL £189; BiO CELL+ £199. 3-4: 13-16°, 5-7: 17-20°. Project X-PXv shaft.
I can honestly say that I really liked this club. The smaller head really suited my eye, I don't try to shape the ball etc it just looks much better for me behind the ball (more 5w, or larger hybrid size). The Red Tie shaft is sweet ( I have it also in my driver) and I love the feel of the shaft through the swing, although this one is a bright white shaft compared it worked well with the jet black head on test. Some really good stats from the club on trackman showing that the shaft/head combo had quite low spin compared to many clubs tested and that suited my game. Only negatives I could find to say was that the headcover is a little weird, with cut outs in the cover that show the club head, and also the torque wrench is a slightly different size to many that other manufacturers use. Great club, and showing that cobra are becoming a force to be reckoned with!
