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.

Fujikura launches new Pro 2.0 and Pro 2.0 Tour Spec shafts

Published

on

Fujikura has announced the launch of the second generation of its Pro series shafts: the Pro 2.0.

The first iteration of the Pro shafts were designed with a soft handle section to aid in loading. The Pro 2.0 presents an even more effective loading zone, according to the company, which also says torsional stiffness is 14 percent greater in the 2.0.

“Like all of our shafts, the Pro 2.0 has been designed utilizing enso, a 3D motion-capture technology that no one else in the shaft industry has,” said Alex Dee, Vice President at Fujikura Composites America.

“This technology and advanced data analytics has allowed us to crack the code on how club performance and ball flight are affected by shaft characteristics and swing type. When we compared to the original Pro, we saw the 2.0 was significantly easier to swing, had tighter shot dispersion, and lower spin to deliver the club head with more power, control and distance. We were thrilled with the result.”

The Pro 2.0 is painted “Destroyer Grey” with a metallic blue design in line with the original Pro shaft. The Tour Spec model is painted “Tour Spec White.”

The shafts will be available in weight ranges from 57 to 87 grams (5, 6, 7, 8) and in flexes starting at R2 up to X. $225 MSRP; $250 for the Tour Spec model. Hybrid option available for $140.

Available at over 600 qualified Fujikura charter dealers beginning February 1. Full specs at Fujikura.com.

Fred Couples has been using his namesake Bettinardi putter, the FCB (Fred Couples Blade), for the past four years. Now, he’s officially joining Bettinardi’s Tour staff.

“I’m really looking forward to representing Bettinardi and its beautiful range of hand-made putters, as they always give me great confidence when I’m standing over putts,” said Fred. “Having won 5 times already with a Bettinardi putter, there’s nothing I’d rather be putting with.

Couples averaged 1.70 putts per hole when playing in 12 events with the Bettinardi wand last year.

“Having Fred Couples join our Tour staff is a massive endorsement for Bettinardi Golf,” said founder Robert Bettinardi. “We’re so proud and excited to welcome him to our growing Tour staff. I’m sure he will prove to be a great ambassador for our brand, as he attracts huge crowds and media attention wherever he plays.”

Here’s a look at Boom Boom’s FCB putter.

Odyssey’s new EXO 2-Ball, Works Red and Black, and Toulon putters

Published

on

There’s one thing Odyssey has never struggled with: giving golfers options. Today, the company launched a trunk-full of new putters, including eight Works Red and Black putters, Toulon Atlanta and Portland models, and an Odyssey EXO 2-Ball putter that gives the classic 2-ball design a very new, and premium look.

Most of the new putters, actually, are mallets. More specifically, they are mallets that Odyssey says feel like blade putters; that’s because they’re made with toe hang (like a blade putter) rather than face-balanced designs of typical mallets. Toe hang frees up the face of a putter to open and close, a stroke-style that many golfers employ — amateurs and pros alike.

According to Austie Rollinson, chief designer of Odyssey, there’s been a trend of blade users on Tour switching into mallets because of this toe hang, and that will continue to happen. Odyssey says that of the PGA Tour wins last year, 29 winners used mallets — 14 of those were mallets with toe hang — while there were 20 blade winners. Also, of the top-50 in Strokes Gained: Putting, 31 players used mallets, 13 of which were toe-hang mallets, and 19 players used blades.

Therefore, many of the new putters from Odyssey are toe-hang mallets. Check out all of the new putters below, with info on design, pricing and release dates.

Odyssey Works Red and Black putters

 

The new Works Red and Black putters — adding on to the line of putters released in 2017 — continue to use microhinge face inserts that are designed to “grab” the ball to impart more topspin on the golf ball to get it rolling faster. The new offerings launched today include a No. 1 Wide S, No. 1 Tank, No. 7 Tank, 2-Ball Fang, Marxman, Marxman S, Jailbird Mini and Jailbird Mini S.

They will sell for $199 with a standard Winn AVS midsize pistol grip, and $219 with a SuperStroke grip starting on February 23.

Odyssey EXO 2-Ball

The new EXO 2-Ball, made with Rose Gold PVD, is a premium version of the iconic 2-ball shape. It’s CNC-milled with a microhinge insert, has an aluminum crown with a steel sole plate and Tungsten in the rear portion of the head. The EXO 2-ball also has black circles instead of the familiar white color for which 2-balls are known.

According to Odyssey, it’s a “statement product,” and it will only sell 5,000 of these putters globally. They will sell for $499.99 starting on February 2.

Odyssey says: “Our new Odyssey EXO 2-Ball is a premium limited edition putter unlike any we’ve ever offered. It combines one of the game’s most innovative and iconic putter designs with top-notch materials and meticulous production to create something truly special.”

Toulon Atlanta and Portland

Odyssey’s premium putter brand continues dipping its toes in the mallet style with its new mid-mallet Atlanta and Portland models. They have gunmetal finishes and are 100-percent milled from soft, 303 stainless steel. They also have Toulon’s familiar diamond-milled faces for improved roll.

The Atlanta and Portland models will sell for $399.99 apiece and hit retail on February 2.
