GolfWRX Launch Report: 2023 Cobra AeroJet drivers, fairway woods, hybrids

Cobra AeroJet drivers and fairway woods

What you need to know: Building on the LTDx platform, Cobra’s new AeroJet family of drivers includes three models: AeroJet LS, AeroJet, and AeroJet Max. An elevated, internal bridge structure (PWR-Bridge Weighting) in the sole of the club is the centerpiece technology of the line, which places CG low and forward.

2023 Cobra AeroJet drivers: What’s new, key technology

Advanced Aerodynamic Shaping: Producing 1.5 mph more clubhead speed in robot testing compared to the LTD line, AeroJet drivers feature progressive aerodynamic shaping and unique weighting configurations for maximum clubhead speed and precise mass configuration.

PWR-Bridge Weighting: Suspended in the sole of the club like a bridge, the 13-gram PWR-Bridge positions CG low and forward for spin reduction and a flexible sole for enhanced energy transfer.

PWRSHELL Face Insert: This technology, debuting for the first time in a Cobra driver, produces a larger sweet spot.

H.O.T. Face (Highly Optimized Topology): An A.I. designed variable thickness face produces more efficient spin and speed across the clubface.

Thin-ply carbon fiber raw finish…in the club’s crown and sole is 30 percent thinner than “normal carbon fiber,” according to the company, contributing to lower CG and more discretionary mass for engineers to dial in launch and spin.

What Cobra says

    Getting pricey compared to where they have been, which was one of Cobra’s biggest advantages.

Three Swing Challenge: Testing the Callaway Paradym Ai Smoke Triple Diamond Max driver

Published

on

Callaway recently released the Paradym Ai Smoke Triple Diamond Max Driver, and BK is ready to see where it stacks up in this week’s Three Swing Challenge!

Why three swings?

Many years ago, the legendary Barney Adams, founder of Adams Golf told us this:

“My formula as a fitter was three shots only. I discounted No. 1 just because it was the first one, counted 100 percent of No. 2 and discounted No. 3 because the player was starting to adjust.”
