Essential Golf: A passion for the Game

Cobra F-Max Airspeed Range Revealed

Cobra have revealed the new F-Max Airspeed range ahead of a January 2020 launch with the new driver, woods, hybrids and irons being billed as the lightest and most forgiving the manufacturer has ever produced.

Cobra Golf introduced the F-Max design for the first time in 2017 and the new Airspeed version is the latest generation of the popular family of clubs with the irons taking centre stage in the attractive set.

Cobra F-Max Airspeed Irons

Cobra will use the “lightest ever iron” slogan as the main sales pitch for the Airspeeds and the design team have managed to achieve that by making 5 grams of weight savings compared to previous models in the F-Max range.

Best suited to golfers with a moderate swing speed, the weight saving includes a lightweight grip that helps generate better control and feel than ever before in a Cobra iron.

Work has also been undertaken to offer more forgiveness than ever before thanks to an undercut cavity, weight low and heel-biased in the improved club head. Interestingly, there are shorter hosels in the longer irons to help provide higher launch angles.

Cobra claim that the resulting performance of the irons, which are available in both steel and graphite, sees optimal ball flights produced, increased carry and overall distance and straight ball striking for an improved performance all round.

“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.”

Cobra F-Max Airspeed Driver

The F-Max Airspeed driver also features new weight saving technologies with Cobra opting for a carbon fibre crown to replace the titanium version in previous versions.

The weighting has been reduced and moved low and towards the back of the clubhead to improve forgiveness and the stability of the driver, which in total helps achieve a club that is 13 grams lighter than the previous F-Max drivers.

The attractive blue and black coloured driver, which is available in 10.5 degree and 11.5 degree options, has a PWR Ridge design on the crown to improve the aerodynamics and also help with alignment.

Cobra F-Max Airspeed Fairway Woods

The F-Max fairway woods have also been produced with a carbon crown and a light shaft to help with the weight savings, while the design of the club head includes a much more shallow face. As a result, you should generate a higher launch angle. There is also a draw bias courtesy of the back and heel weighting to the fairways. The woods will be available in 16, 20 and 23 degree lofts.

Cobra F-Max Airspeed Fairway Hybrids

The F-Max hybrids all have the weighting positioned low, back and towards the heel which help to produce straight ball flights than ever before. A higher launch, meanwhile, comes thanks to an offset hosel design to help square the face quicker. Available lofts include 3H (19 degree), 4H (22 degree), 5H (25 degree), 6H (28 degree) and 7H (31 degree).

The Cobra F-Max Airspeed range will be launched early in the New Year.
