Cobra launch lightest golf clubs yet with F-MAX AIRSPEED Driver, Fairways, Hybrids and Irons

Published:

Cobra's new F-MAX AIRSPEED driver, fairways, hybrids and irons are their lightest and easiest to hit clubs yet, aimed to add forgiveness and distance for golfers with moderate swing speeds

Cobra Golf have announced the new iteration of their F-MAX range, named AIRSPEED, which feature the brand's lightest ever golf clubs to enhance both clubhead speed and forgiveness.

Each club has a 5g lighter shaft and a lightweight grip, while the key technology in the new F-MAX AIRSPEED driver features a new Carbon Fibre Crown that contributes to its impressive 13g of weight saving over its predecessor.

The F-MAX AIRSPEED range targets both men and women with moderate swing speeds, and will be available in January 2020.

The COBRA Golf F-MAX AIRSPEED line is anchored by new and improved Drivers that have been re-engineered with new weight saving technologies. A new Carbon Fiber Crown replaces titanium to save 10-grams of discretionary weight that can be re-distributed low and back in the clubhead to maintain a MOI of 5,000, delivering a clubhead that is 2 grams lighter without sacrificing stability and forgiveness.

Additionally, a 5-gram lighter AIRSPEED shaft, and 6-gram lighter, 41g Lamkin midsize grip design yields 11 grams in weight-savings, bringing the total overall weight to an unbelievably light 285 grams - 13 grams lighter than its predecessor.

In addition, the F-MAX AIRSPEED Drivers utilize a new PWR Ridge design on the Carbon Fiber Crown to assist with alignment and improved aerodynamics. Straighter, more slice resistant shots, are made easier with internal, back/heel weighting and offset hosel design that delivers higher trajectories.

"Not a single aspect of club design was overlooked when we were trying to maximize the weight savings in this line," said Tom Olsavsky, VP of R&D for COBRA Golf.

"We even use an unpainted shaft with clearcoat and a decal design to save two extra grams of weight over a typical painted shaft. That is a perfect illustration of the level of detail than went into making these clubs as lightweight as possible."

Cobra F-MAX AIRSPEED Fairways

• RRP: (£179), Available in both right-hand and left-hand versions (men & women)
• Shafts: 50-gram AIRSPEED shaft in stiff, regular and 45-gram in lite flex (men), 45-gramAIRSPEED shaft in ladies flex (women)

COBRA's new F-MAX AIRSPEED Fairways employ similar weight-saving innovations as the driver, such as a new lightweight Carbon Crown, and a 5-gram lighter AIRSPEED shaft design.

Additionally, a low profile, shallow face design lowers the CG for higher launch while back/heel weighting creates draw bias to help create draw bias trajectory.

The COBRA GOLF F-MAX AIRSPEED Drivers and Fairway Woods are available as stand-alone products or as a part of COBRA's 13-piece Complete Set. See below for details:

COBRA Golf F-MAX AIRSPEED Irons

RRP: Men's F-MAX Irons (£549 steel; £649 graphite) – 7-piece, stock 5-PW, 5-SW set ($599). Also available in women's.
• Shaft: 97g FST AIRSPEED steel shaft. A graphite shaft is available through custom and is offered with a 50-gram weight shaft in stiff and regular and a 45-gram weight in lite flex;
• Colours: black/blue
• Available: January 24th, 2020 

"For golfers who love the game but just don't swing it with the same speed they used to, the F-MAX AIRSPEED irons are a great choice, said Tom Olsavsky, VP of R&D for COBRA Golf. "We are confident that the combination of easy launch, low spin, and increased clubhead speed that these irons provide, will make the game much more enjoyable."

The F-MAX AIRSPEED irons take lightweight technology and super game improvement performance to a new level with a 5g lighter shaft and lightweight midsize grip to improve feel and control. The combination of a deep undercut cavity, low profile shape and greater lofts throughout the set are engineered to be forgiving, and therefore helping golfers with moderate swing speeds increase their distance. 

Strategic weighting, which is low and wide, increases stability and forgiveness on off-center hits, while heel-biased weighting provides draw trajectory for increased accuracy and directional control.

A progressive hosel design features shorter hosels in the long irons to deliver lower CG for higher launch, and these gradually increase in length through the mid-irons and wedges, delivering a higher CG for increased control and flatter trajectories in the scoring clubs.

As part of the progressive offset design, the long irons have more offset to increase accuracy and forgiveness, while the short irons and wedges feature progressively less offset for maximum control and precision around the green.

A low profile shape with a deep undercut cavity results in higher launch, increased ball speeds and maximum carry distance, while greater iron lofts maximize flight trajectory for moderate swing speeds to help increase carry distances, and feature steeper decent angles for improved stopping power into greens.

Similar to Cobra's latest irons, both the men's and women's F-MAX AIRSPEED Hybrids utilize COBRA's lightest clubhead, grip and shaft designs in addition to the following game-enhancing technologies:

• Back/Heel CG Weighting – An internal weight pad strategically positions weight low, back and towards the heel to deliver straighter trajectories.

• Offset Hosel Design – An offset hosel design helps to square the face quicker at impact to increase launch and improve accuracy.
