Co­bra F-Max

Golf Vacations - - Sweet Stuff - by Terry Ross

Anew driver built with plenty of per­for­mance fea­tures but de­signed for the av­er­age player has been in­tro­duced by Co­bra Golf as the com­pany con­tin­ues to hit the mar­ket with in­no­va­tive prod­ucts this year.

The F-Max driver, de­signed for play­ers with mod­er­ate club­head speeds and to in­crease dis­tance—does all of that in an at­trac­tive, easy to hit pack­age.

Ex­tremely light­weight with a 50-gram Co­bra Su­perlight shaft (45-gram for women) and an over­all lighter head, this is a club that many play­ers will find is eas­ier to hit than some of the prod­ucts cur­rently on the mar­ket. The sleek and com­fort­able look at setup is a plus and the over­all lighter weight will pro­duce higher swing speeds and more dis­tance be­cause of it. Ex­cel­lent con­trol for work­ing the ball is pos­si­ble, de­spite the many game im­prove­ment fea­tures of this club.

Although the stock shaft pro­vides very sta­ble per­for­mance and feel, Co­bra also of­fers many cus­tom shaft op­tions for this club as well as an off­set and straight hosel op­tions. The Lamkin REL grips that come on the club makes it eas­ier to swing for a large seg­ment of play­ers and have a nice soft feel.

Other fea­tures of the F-MAX in­clude a forged ti­ta­nium face for more ball speed; a larger ef­fec­tive hit­ting area; in­ter­nal weights near the heel for a less slices and a straighter, longer flight and a new align­ment aid on the crown for more ac­cu­rate set up. The off­set hosel cre­ates a higher tra­jec­tory with a draw bias to help play­ers turn the ball over, and the forged Ti-6-4 ti­ta­nium face in­sert de­liv­ers ex­cel­lent ball speed.

“When it comes to the su­per game-im­prove­ment cat­e­gory, it can’t be over­stated how im­por­tant light­weight con­struc­tion is to this cat­e­gory of player,” said Tom Ol­savsky, Co­bra’s vice pres­i­dent of re­search and de­vel­op­ment. “With the cre­ation of F-MAX, we have fo­cused on the con­cept that lighter means eas­ier to hit, and we have gone to great lengths to en­sure that even our com­po­nents de­liver su­pe­ri­or­ity when it comes to re­duced weight.”

The F-MAX comes in 9.5-de­gree, 10.5-de­gree, and 11.5-de­gree lofts for men and 15-de­gree for women.
