F-MAX Airspeed Family – Cobra’s Most Forgiving and Lightest Club Offering

F-MAX Airspeed Family

NEW F-MAX AIRSPEED DRIVER AND FAIRWAYS ARE COBRA’S LIGHTEST AND MOST FORGIVING CLUB LINEUP, DESIGNED FOR PLAYERS WITH MODERATE SWING SPEEDS

New F-MAX AIRSPEED Family of Woods Become Even Lighter to Maximize Swing Speed and Distance

Carlsbad, Calif. (November 12, 2019) – COBRA Golf, a leader in golf club innovation and design, introduced today its newest iteration of its popular F-MAX franchise, offering the company’s lightest, easiest to hit collection of clubs ever.  Continuing its focus on weight-savings and forgiveness, COBRA’s new F-MAX AIRSPEED men’s and women’s Drivers and Fairways deliver a new level of lightweight performance, maximizing clubhead speed, distance and forgiveness for players with moderate swing speeds.

The COBRA Golf F-MAX AIRSPEED line is anchored by new and improved Drivers that have been re-engineered with new weight saving technologies.  A new Carbon Fiber Crown replaces titanium to save 10-grams of discretionary weight that can be re-distributed low and back in the clubhead to maintain a MOI of 5,000, delivering a clubhead that is 2 grams lighter without sacrificing stability and forgiveness.  Additionally, a 5-gram lighter AIRSPEED shaft, and 6-gram lighter, 41g Lamkin midsize grip design yields 11 grams in weight-savings, bringing the total overall weight to an unbelievably light 285 grams – 13 grams lighter than its predecessor. In addition, the F-MAX AIRSPEED Drivers utilize a new PWR Ridge design on the Carbon Fiber Crown to assist with alignment and improved aerodynamics. Straighter, more slice resistant shots, are made easier with internal, back/heel weighting and offset hosel design that delivers higher trajectories. For players who prefer a traditional, square setup at address, the F-MAX AIRPEED Drivers are also available in a straight neck model.  

“Not a single aspect of club design was overlooked when we were trying to maximize the weight savings in this line,” said Tom Olsavsky, VP of R&D for COBRA Golf.  “We even use an unpainted shaft with clearcoat and a decal design to save two extra grams of weight over a typical painted shaft. That is a perfect illustration of the level of detail than went into making these clubs as lightweight as possible.”

COBRA’s new F-MAX AIRSPEED Fairways employ similar weight-saving innovations as the driver, such as a new lightweight Carbon Crown, and a 5-gram lighter AIRSPEED shaft design.  Additionally, a low profile, shallow face design lowers the CG for higher launch while back/heel weighting creates draw bias to help create draw bias trajectory. 

The COBRA GOLF F-MAX AIRSPEED Drivers and Fairway Woods are available as stand-alone products or as a part of COBRA’s 13-piece Complete Set.  See below for details:

  • Men’s F-MAX AIRSPEED Driver ($329) – Available in both right-hand and left-hand versions with a 40-gram COBRA AIRSPEED shaft in stiff, regular and lite flex.
