Aimed at players with moderate clubhead speeds the new F-Max Superlite woods and irons from Cobra are an extension of the original F-Max family from 2017.
The clubhead of the F-Max Superlite driver ($299) weighs 6 grams less than the previous model, making it the company’s lightest to date, and is attached to a lighter shaft and grip that save an additional 18 grams of total weight (287 grams). The significantly lighter overall weight makes the driver easier to swing fast and launch high for players with smoother motions and comes in both standard and offset models.
Other design features include a forged multi-thickness Titanium face insert for faster ball speeds, an internal weight pad that helps create a low and deep CG for higher launch and straighter shots, and a crown alignment design that helps you aim more accurately.
Accompanying the driver is a series of F-Max Superlite fairways ($199 each) that come in 16°, 20°, and 23° lofts. The fairways are set up with stock Superlite shafts that weigh in at a feathery 50-55 grams.
F-Max Superlite hybrids ($179 each) are also available that feature high-strength steel face inserts, a low-heel CG locations for improved launch and versatility, and offset hosels for straighter shots. A complete set ($1199) with a cart bag and twelve clubs including a driver and blade putter is also available.
“We are very excited about this driver; we’ve been able to engineer an incredibly forgiving, powerful club and keep the overall clubhead weight to less than 300 grams. The F-MAX Superlite Driver will be the perfect solution for players who need the added speed of lightweight design without sacrificing forgiveness; those that will benefit from having a club that allows them to maximize their swing speed and launch angle.” – Tom Olsavsky, Vice President of R&D for Cobra Golf
Like the woods the F-Max Superlite irons ($599 standard, $699 combo set) are designed to maximize clubhead speed and distance for moderate swingers and also feature lighter clubheads, shafts, and grips in order to save weight.
Performance features include optimized CG locations due to progressive hosel lengths (shorter in the long irons, longer in the short irons), progressive offset to enhance accuracy in the short irons and launch in the long irons, and a high MOI design with more weight in the low perimeter for improved forgiveness. Low profile clubheads with undercut cavities futher enhance launch and carry distance. Specialty wedges (GW, SW) allow for seamless flow through the set.
All Cobra F-Max Superlite clubs will be available at retail on 10/5/18.
