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.

TaylorMade is releasing its TP Black Copper putters to retail

Published

on

We first spotted TaylorMade’s new TP Black Copper putters at the 2018 PGA Show, but the company wasn’t saying anything about specs, release date, pricing, technologies, nothing.

Then, we all saw Rory McIlroy switch to a TaylorMade TP Black Copper Soto proto putter ahead of the 2018 Arnold Palmer Invitational, which he won by 3 strokes. Of course, Rory’s specific Soto putter was made with a special insert. Click here for all of the info and specs on Rory’s putter.

Now, TaylorMade is releasing retail versions to the public in four models — Juno, Soto, Ardmore 3 and Mullen 2 — which will hit stores on 4/20 selling for $199 with a standard Black Lamkin Crossbone Pistol grip, and $219 with a SuperStroke Pistol 1.0 GT grip.

The putters have a triple-plated finish; nickel, then copper, then black chrome, according to TaylorMade’s Bill Price (Senior Director of Product Creation for Wedges and Putters). They’re then hand-polished to achieve the antique and non-glare finish. Overtime, and especially on the sole, Price says the copper will tarnish or oxidize to unveil a gradually more antique and rustic look. Rory McIlroy himself actually had a hand in inspiring the new finish.

“Rory was talking about certain finishes,” Price said. “He wanted something non-glare, with an antique type finish…. he wanted to be reminded of something old school.” 

Thus, the TP Black Copper finish was born.

Also, the putters are machined from 303 stainless steel, they have adjustable sole weights and have the company’s familiar Pure Roll inserts in their faces. Check out more info about each of TaylorMade’s TP Black Copper models below.

Published

We spotted new shallow-faced CF218 fairway woods (15 and 17 degrees) from Fourteen Golf on the range at TPC San Antonio on Tuesday at the 2018 Valero Texas Open, each equipped with Graphite Design TS918 shafts. Also on the range from the company were new FH “Future Heritage” Forged V1 wedges with a different, more raw look than the ones we saw in October at the Shriners Open.
