Cobra introduces F-Max Superlite driver, fairway woods, hybrids, irons

Published

on

Targeting golfers with moderate swing speeds, Cobra’s F-Max Superlite series includes the company’s lightest woods ever and easy-to-launch irons.

Cobra originally introduced the F-Max line in 2017. With the Superlite incarnation, Cobra has achieved significantly lighter clubs overall.

F-Max Superlite drivers are six grams lighter than the previous generation with an MOI over 5,000. The stock Superlite shaft is also five grams lighter with a grip that is seven grams lighter, as well. The Superlite driver also features a 6-4 titanium variable thickness face and an internal weight pad that position weight low and toward the heel of the club.

Men’s, women’s drivers pictured.

“We are very excited about this driver; we’ve been able to engineer an incredibly forgiving, powerful club and keep the overall clubhead weight to less than 300 grams,” said Tom Olsavsky, Vice President of R&D for Cobra Golf. “The F-Max Superlite Driver will be the perfect solution for players who need the added speed of lightweight design without sacrificing forgiveness; those that will benefit from having a club that allows them to maximize their swing speed and launch angle.”

The F-Max Superlight fairway woods feature a low profile, shallow face forged from 455 stainless steel. A 55-gram Superlite shaft is standard. Available lofts include 16 degrees, 20 degrees and 23 degrees in right-hand and 16 degrees and 20 degrees in left-hand.

F-Max Superlite irons are four grams lighter than their predecessors. The high MOI irons feature a shaft that is five grams lighter and grip that is seven grams lighter as well. Cobra touts the irons’ progressive hosel, which strategically position the center of gravity for optimal launch.

“Building off of the success of our original F-Max lightweight design, we’ve reengineered Superlite to be our lightest, fastest and most forgiving game improvement clubs ever. Any player with a moderate swing speed will benefit from the design innovations in this product line,” said Olsavsky.

The final piece of the puzzle, F-Max Superlite hybrids are both included in the combo iron sets and available for stand-alone purchase. Once again, these are the lightest clubheads, grip, and shafts the company has produced in a hybrid. A 455 high-strength stainless steel insert face boosts ball speed across the face. The hybrids feature the same strategic internal weighting as the woods, as well.

Men’s F-Max Superlite hybrids are available in 3H (19 degrees), 4H (22 degrees), 5H (25 degrees), 6H (28 degrees) and 7H (31 degrees).

The Superlite line is available Oct. 5 in store and on website. Details on available lofts, pricing, and women’s models can be found there.

    It looks like a beautiful and peaceful place, would be nice to go play golf or just sit and relax for while in a good weather. Places like these should be promoted more.

    Ever notice how equipment manufacturers seldom/if ever show their new club heads in the address position….could it be because they look nearly identical to their last 10 models they introduced as revolutionary? lol!

    “We are very excited about this driver…Tom Olsavsky, Vice President of R&D for Cobra Golf”

    Are you really excited Tom, are you really? What exactly is there to be excited about with this product range.

    So how many grams are the drivers?! That would seem to be something that should have been included in the story.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Ball in the thick rough – what club to use?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from jjfcpa who asks fellow members what their preferred choice of club is when their ball is in thick rough. A variety of irons and hybrids are mentioned by our members who delve into the discussion of course management.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • RainShadow: “For me, that sot would be a 7 iron, open the face a little and play a runner up to the front of the green. Open face will help a bit with getting stuck in the grass.”
  • golfgirlrobin: “Club choice depends on whether you’re willing to accept a bogey or whether you insist on making double.”
  • ChipNRun: “I would try a hinge and hold action. Take a half swing with plenty of hinge action and punch down on the ball with limited follow-through. Use the big muscles of the shoulders – you don’t want to hurt yourself trying to muscle it. Probably choose something between a PW and a 7i. You’ll need to hold firmly with L hand, so the grass doesn’t wrap around the hosel and deloft the club face.”
  • kcd38: “If it is 200 plus from the green and a decent lie, hybrid. If it is less than 200 from the green and sunk down a little, I usually go with my 8 iron and play the face slightly open knowing the grass will grab the hosel and shut the face. Definitely need some speed to get out of the thick stuff.”
