COBRA F-MAX SUPERLITE
Upgraded, but is the F-Max range worth your money?
Launched in 2017, Cobra’s F-Max range was an impressive line-up of lightweight, high-MOI clubs specifically designed for slower swingers and mid-to-high handicappers. The fact it wasn’t a tour product might have hurt its visibility, but the performance and highly competitive price tag made them an excellent option for many club golfers.
Cobra has now upgraded the range with the Superlite family. The driver (9.5°, 10.5°, 11.5°) weighs just 287g – 18g lighter than its predecessor – with an oversized head shape and back/heel centre of gravity weighting that boosts forgiveness and stability. It’s available with an offset hosel that promotes a draw flight or a straight-neck design.
Fairway woods (16°, 20°, 23°) feature a low-profile, shallow face using forged 455 stainless steel to enhance ball speed and launch.
The irons are 16g lighter, while maintaining the same high MOI. Higher lofts and a low-profile shape with a deep undercut cavity get the ball airborne quicker and increase ball speeds for more carry and total distance.
Hybrids (19°, 22°, 25°, 28°, 31°) have the same 455 steel face insert as the fairways, back/heel CG weighting and an offset hosel. They’re available separately, or as combo sets with the irons.
The CG position and offset is progressive through the set to produce high launch and draw-bias in the long irons and a more controlled trajectory in the short irons. A thin forged 6-4 titanium face insert has E9 Technology, a variable thickness face structure designed to enhance ball speeds in every impact location. Boosted forgiveness Progressive iron design
