Cobra have a decent pedigree when it comes to making easy to hit game improvement drivers and irons, its how they cut their teeth in the 1990’s. Cobra’s engineers have obviously been busy in 2015. They’ve created the cracking King Ltd and F6 ranges but also had time to work up an entirely new Max range too. Cobra reckon its their easiest to hit range as each head has been developed to combine high launch with an easy straight ball flight.
Cobra MAX Driver (RRP £199)
The driver features an all titanium low profile 460cc head which is slightly offset to help golfers with slower swing speeds play more consistently. A thin face and “Speed Channel” along with the companies E9 variable thickness structure helps maintain ball speed when shots don’t come out the centre of the bat. Some internal tech creates a draw bias to help iron out a typical golfers slice.
Lofts: 9.5deg, 10.5deg, 11.5deg
Shaft: Matrix White Tie 55X4
Cobra Max Fairway (RRP £149) and Hybrid (RRP £129)
Both the Max fairway and hybrids have been created with 17-4 SS heads with High-Strength 455 steel faces to help transfer every last drop of swing speed into ball speed. A large profile at address generates confidence and a low CG helps launch shots higher to maximise carry distance. Expect offset hosels and the usual “speed channel” face along with some internal straight flight weighting which will help counteract a slice.
Fairway lofts: 3F /16deg, 5F /20deg, 7/F 23deg.
Hybrid lofts: 3H/19deg, 4H/22deg, 5H/25deg, 6H/28deg, 7H/31deg.
Shaft: Matrix White Tie 60X4/X4
Cobra Max Irons (RRP from £399)
No self respecting game improvement range would be complete without a combo set of irons. Its actually your choice where you switch from hybrids to irons as the Max hybrids are available all the way from 3H (19deg loft) to 7H (31deg loft). The irons are also available from 4-SW which offers you the opportunity to create your own specific set. The irons feature a “TecFlo” construction which means special attention has been paid to how each iron performs within the set. So expect progressive head shapes, sole widths, groove patterns and hosel offset. The heads are a deep cavity back design with plenty of forgiving perimeter weighting and a speed channel to maintain ball speeds on miss hits.
Shaft: FST Steel, Matrix White X4 Graphite
Expect to see the MAX range appearing in golf shops early in 2016. For further information visit www.cobragolf.co.uk
