Golf Australia - - PLAYING WITH ... -

Co­bra golf isn’t rest­ing on its lau­rels as golf equip­ment in­no­va­tors, an­nounc­ing its lat­est range of clubs, the F-MAX fam­ily, which aims to de­liver what the com­pany calls its most for­giv­ing and easy-to-hit woods and irons ever. The F-MAX range en­com­passes driv­ers, fair­ways, hy­brids and both vari­able length and one length iron sets for men and ladies which use su­per light-weight set­ups to help golfers with mod­er­ate swing speeds play their best golf.

“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,” said vice pres­i­dent of re­search and de­vel­op­ment for CO­BRA Golf Tom Ol­savsky.

The F-MAX driver (RRP: $449.95) in­cor­po­rates Co­bra’s Su­per­lite shaft and a lighter swing weight to in­crease club­head speed, while the in­ter­nal

weight­ing is lo­cated to­wards the heel to in­crease for­give­ness. Play­ers are of­fered a choice be­tween straight and off­set hosels to suit their de­sired ball flight or typ­i­cal miss and the ad­di­tion of a new crown align­ment fea­ture in­spires con­fi­dence when stand­ing on the tee.

Util­is­ing many of the tech­nolo­gies found in the driver of the same name, the F-MAX fair­ways (RRP: $299.95) dif­fer in their Forged 455 Stain­less Steel Face In­sert, as op­posed to the Ti-6-4 Ti­ta­nium Face in­sert of the driver, and are of­fered in higher lofts to help golfers get the ball in the air.

F-MAX hy­brids (RRP: $269.95) com­plete the wood fam­ily and fea­ture the same Su­per­lite shaft as the driver and fair­ways as well as the larger grips found through­out the rest of the range. Avail­able in right and left-hand the F-MAX hy­brids of­fer lofts as high as 31° for men and 32.5° for women.

De­signed with the same su­per light-weight con­cept as the woods the F-MAX irons low pro­file head de­sign helps to move the cen­tre of grav­ity low and back in the head for ideal launch con­di­tions, while the deep un­der­cut cav­ity al­lows the face to flex for in­creased ball speed, even on off cen­tre hits. Pro­gres­sive head de­signs and strate­gic weight place­ment de­liver for­give­ness and dis­tance in the long-irons and softer feel in the shorter clubs.

In­spired by PGA Tour win­ner and Co­bra player Bryson DeCham­beau, the com­pany is of­fer­ing the new F-MAX iron in one length, to fur­ther sim­plify the game for higher hand­i­cap play­ers, with each iron match­ing 7-iron weight­ing.

Of­fered in steel (RRP: $129.95 per iron) and graphite (RRP: $149.95 per iron) and with the op­tion of vari­able and one length the F-MAX irons can fit any player and match per­fectly with the rest of the F-MAX range.
