Cobra Bio Cell+ Fairway Woods

Published

on

Cobra’s new Bio Cell+ fairway woods are designed with better players in mind, with a lower, more forward center of gravity than the company’s Bio Cell fairway woods to promote a more penetrating trajectory.

“In an effort to continually improve upon our top-performing products, we worked in collaboration with some of our Tour players to design the club head on our BiO CELL+ Fairways,” said Jose Miraflor, director of product marketing at Cobra. “The clubs have a great look and feel and are purpose-built to deliver exactly what Tour-level players need.”

The ultra-compact fairway woods have extremely thin 455 carpenter-stainless-steel faces, and include the company’s new MyFly8 adjustable hosel that allows golfers to choose from five different lofts (12 to 15 degrees on the 3-4 Wood, 16 to 19 degrees on the 5-7 Wood) and three “draw” settings, which make the clubs more upright. Cobra’s Smart Pad, a specially designed strip on the club’s sole, ensures that the face angle of the clubs will remain relatively square throughout loft and lie adjustments.

The Bio Cell+ fairway woods come stock with a Matrix “Red Tie” 6Q3 shaft, but golfers have the option to order a custom shaft with no upcharge. The custom shaft options are Mitsubishi Rayon’s Diamana D+ “White Board” 72 shaft and True Temper’s Project X PXv Tour 53-gram shaft. The clubs will hit stores on Feb.7, and will sell for $249. They’re available in five colors: black, orange, silver, red and blue.

    Love the review. Was thinking of getting 913f, but might change my mind now. What head size is the 5-7 bio cell + fairway? I know the 3-4 is 148cc. Is the 5-7 same size or smaller again?

    What is the head size / volume (cc) of the bio cell + 5 – 7 fairway?. Can’t seem to find it anywhere. Was going to get a 913f but this review has me thinking otherwise

    Lol a 5 to 7 wood that doesn’t go over 20degrees? I remember when some 5 woods came in at 21degrees

      The club number means nothing now, it’s all about the loft. They should just remove the club number.

    I like the compact head shape and option for a whiteboard at no cost. I don’t care for the cosmetics though. The face is deeper which suits me better and it has a nice range of adjustibility. If they made one with a gloss black crown and black/silver bottom I’d be on the pre-order train!

    How is that a 3-4 wood? it has a range of 12-15*

      Ya those lofts are pretty darn strong… I bet the 3 wood set at 12* is a rocket though.

Brooks Koepka with Mizuno JPX 919 irons, TaylorMade M5 driver in the bag at Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship

Published

on

Brooks-Koepka-Mizuno-JPX919

Brooks Koepka is in action this week at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship equipped with a new driver and set of irons.

Golf.com’s Jonathan Wall broke the news, via Twitter, that Kopeka has TaylorMade’s new M5 Driver in his bag this week, as well as Mizuno’s JPX 919 Tour Irons.

The three-time major champ used TaylorMade’s M3 460 Driver and Mizuno’s JPX 900 Tour irons throughout 2018, and it appears as if Koepka is happy to make the transition to both manufacturers latest additions of those series of clubs right from the get-go in 2019.

Koepka is currently T13 after two rounds of play at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship and sits five shots off the lead.

Titleist 718 AP2 Black and AP3 Black released in limited quantities

Published

on

FEATURED-Titleist-AP-3-Black-Titleist-AP-2-Black-400

Titleist has unveiled new 718 AP2 Black and 718 AP3 Black irons in limited black finish that will be available to purchase from March 1.

Previously only available in a traditional chrome finish, the new Titleist 718 AP2 Black and Titleist 718 AP3 Black irons are finished with a sleek, high polish black PVD coating. The irons feature True Temper AMT Onyx shafts stock. The shafts’ powder coat matte black finish aims to minimize glare (in addition to looking cool). An all-black Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 grip is standard as well.

Speaking on the move to release the irons in black, Josh Talge, Vice President, Golf Club Marketing said

“One request we heard from both tour players and amateurs, particularly those who have gravitated toward our Jet Black Vokey SM7 wedges, was if they could have these same irons in a darker finish. Our team spent a lot of time making sure the aesthetics were done just right. It’s a look that you just have to see.”

A quick refresher on the two models, below.

Titleist 718 AP3 Black

The 718 AP3 iron is a players distance iron which features a hollow-blade design with high-speed face technology. According to Titleist, the company merged the technology found in their AP1 and AP2 irons to create the AP3, which the company are calling their longest and fastest players iron ever.

Commenting on the AP3, Talge stated

“AP3 truly represents the best of both worlds. We’re giving you the distance and forgiveness of a game improvement iron packed into the look and feel of a player’s iron.”

The set is made up of 4-iron through 48-degree wedge. The AP3 Black irons, which are available for right-handers only, are available to purchase from March 1 and will cost $187.50 per club or $1,499/set of 8.

Titleist 718 AP2 Black

The 718 AP2 iron features a co-forged cavity back design which aims to provide consistent distance and forgiveness, while also delivering excellent feel to all golfers.

Speaking concerning the AP2 iron, Talge had this to say

“AP2 is the most popular tour iron globally because it combines the look and feel tour players demand with the precise distance control they need to consistently hit their target, shot after shot. For everyone else, it’s the tour iron within reach, because it is so forgiving.”

The set is made up of 4-iron through 50-degree wedge. Also available for right-handers only, the irons are available to purchase from March 1 and will cost $187.50 per club or $1,499/set of 8 as well.
