The new game-improver Cobra Max woods have been introduced to try and make golf easier, offering increased forgiveness and distance

Hot on the heels of its recent King Ltd and F6 ranges, Cobra has unveiled the Cobra Max woods, which will become its family aimed at game-improvers and beginners.

Replacing the Cobra Baffler XL woods, the new Cobra Max woods will complement the better player Cobra King Ltd family and the mid-handicap Cobra F6 woods (as seen in the below video) and irons.

As with those line-ups, the Cobra Max woods will be joined by an ultra-forgiving Cobra Max iron set.

Cobra Max woods details

The new woods were designed to provide additional support and forgiveness to help achieve higher launches and extra distance, with a draw-bias also aiding your accuracy.

“At Cobra we want everyone to love the game and have fun on the course no matter their skill level, so we designed the Cobra Max woods to give higher handicap golfers increased accuracy and distance, to help them enjoy the game even more,” Jose Miraflor, Director of Product Marketing at Cobra, told GM

To achieve all this, the woods are engineered with a shallow face, offset hosel and draw bias head weighting.

The driver also features an increased length-to-width ratio, reaching the largest legal possible size, for a bigger sweetspot and more forgiveness on off-centre hits.

The Speed Channel around the perimeter of the driver face also minimises thickness and increases ball speeds across the face for longer distance.
