Cobra Golf Launches F-Max Airspeed Driver, Fairways, Hybrids and Irons

The 2020 F-Max Airspeed lineup from Cobra Golf is said to be the company’s most forgiving and lightest in its entire history, and we mean that literally. Cobra Golf is one of the leading companies in the industry, and the F-Max Airspeed is designed to rock your world, boasting a new design and a number of tech innovations aimed at making your life easier on the golf course. The new F-Max Airspeed builds on the success of the F-Max family of clubs, which was launched back in 2017; the new generation is built for both men and women golfers, and it offers less club weight, more forgiveness and, most importantly, ease of use.

Basically, the new-gen F-Max Airspeed is a highly innovative product, that uses high-tech innovations to help golfers of all skill levels to go further and higher via more forgiveness aided by weight-saving technologies. It already sounds like fun, doesn't it? So, let's take a closer look. To begin with, we have to determine who's it for, and the answer is: golfers with slow to moderate swing speeds. The new F-Max Airspeed drivers and fairways are available for both men and women and deliver a new level of affordable performance. Needless to say, the drivers in the F-Max Airspeed are the flagships of the collection, and they've been completely redesigned and re-engineered by the company's engineers with innovative and cutting edge weight-saving technologies from top to bottom, or, to put it another way, from head to grip.

However, since we're not all millionaires driving Porsches and having mansions in Beverly Hills, Cobra Golf made the F-Max Airspeed as budget-friendly as possible, hence they'll make your favorite game more enjoyable and you won't have to break the piggy bank to get them. Yes, they're the best of both worlds folks.

To begin with the hottest gear, the driver respectively, the new F-Max Airspeed driver now boasts a carbon fiber crown, for weight reduction purposes; the previous generation had a titanium made crown, but carbon saved 10 grams of discretionary weight in the new driver, and that's a lot of weight to be redistributed low and back in the clubhead. Using carbon instead of titanium helped maintain a high moment of inertia, but without sacrificing stability in the process. And considering that less weight makes for a higher moment of inertia, generally speaking, this is pretty cool, to say the least. The new driver crown is also looking pretty good at address, i.e. it's been improved both in terms of usability and aesthetics, and that's due to the innovative PWR Ridge structure, that also plays a big role in helping with alignment towards the target, not to mention better aerodynamics, i.e. more speed.

The new F-Max Airspeed driver not only features an internal weight pad towards the back and heel of the driver's head, but it is also more draw-biased, due to the offset hosel design. If you're the kind of golfer who prefers a classic setup at address, the new drivers can be ordered in a non-offset straight hosel mode.

Moreover, attached to the head, or should we say on top of the head, there's a 5 gram lighter shaft, and a 6 gram lighter mid-sized grip, Airspeed and Lamkin respectively. This translates into eleven grams of weight saved via 2 items, which makes the new driver be extremely light compared to its predecessor, standing at a mere 285 grams. And before you ask, that's 13 grams lighter compared to the previous generation. If you don't think that's respectable, 13 grams that is, think again, as that means a 4.3 percent improvement in the world of engineering equipment, which is a lot. Here's the VP of R&D for Cobra Golf Tom Olsavsky:

“Not a single aspect of club design was overlooked when we were trying to maximize the weight savings in this line. We even use an unpainted shaft with a clear coat and a decal design to save two extra grams of weight over a typically painted shaft. That is a perfect illustration of the level of detail that went into making these clubs as lightweight as possible.”

The F-Max Airspeed fairways are just as impressive in terms of employing similar weight-saving technologies as the driver, i.e. you'll also discover a newly designed and ultra-lightweight carbon crown, and a 5 gram lighter shaft design. On top of that, the fairway woods feature a shallow face/low profile design in order to lower the CoG for delivering higher launch, with a draw bias trajectory via weighting towards the extreme back and heel.
