PREVIEW: Cobra Max driver, fairway woods, hybrids and irons

Cobra Golf has a new game-improvement line, dubbed Cobra Max, which is the company's attempt to make the game a little more fun for high-handicap players struggling to score.

The Max line runs through almost the entire bag, with a driver, fairway woods and a hybrid-iron set.

The driver, priced at $279, has a shallow face with a strong offset and weighting to promote a draw bias. The size of the head is the largest allowed by the USGA, maxing out the ratio of the head's width to its depth-length. The Max driver has the company's speed channel for minimal face thickness. The driver is available in 9.5-, 10.5- and 11.5-degree offset options.

The driver technology carries through the fairway wood line, with 3-, 5- and 7-wood options, retailing for $199, as well hybrids, coming in 3-7 hybrid options, retailing for $179. The clubs are available for men and women.

The Cobra Max irons use the new TECFLO (Technology Enhanced Cavity Feel Launch Optimization) system, also found in the new F6 line, to create a progressive set with technologies to improve mid- and long-iron performance while allowing scoring clubs to perform in a more traditional manner.

In the eight-piece iron-only set, the 4-8 irons are half-hollow designs, while the 9-iron and pitching wedge have a deep undercut cavity-back design. The gap wedge has a muscleback shape and looks like a tour-style wedge. The combo set replaces the 4-6 irons with hybrids. All of the irons have weaker lofts to improve launch conditions, helping players get the ball in the air faster.

The Cobra Max iron sets will run $600 for the eight-piece iron set with FSTsteel shafts, while the combo set will cost $650 for steel shafts and $700 for all Matrix White Tie X4 graphite shafts. A women's combo set costs $700.

All Cobra Max clubs will be available Dec. 4.
