Hot List Gold 2023

Our Review:

WHAT IT DOES: One challenge with fairway woods is that they are the biggest clubs you hit off the ground. That means a lot of impacts occur lower on the face. A great way to make the face flex better is to extend it into the crown and sole. This is what Cobra has done here—a flap of the face wraps around the bottom. The so-called “L- face” serves as a hinge to get more energy into the ball at impact. A heavy weight low in the front part of the sole improves launch conditions, and, thanks to an internal bridge-like structure, the weight rests above the sole, allowing the L-face to flex more effectively. 

WHY WE LIKE IT: Cobra fairway woods made their name with sole rails that helped the head glide through the turf, but rails on these new fairway woods would have stiffened the sole, preventing the L-face from flexing properly. Instead, Cobra uses subtle shaping on the leading edges. Raising the bounce angle on the leading edge mimics the effect of the rails, smoothing fat shots so that more energy transfers into the ball. We also love the three fully adjustable choices: the ultra-low spin LS (for better players), the forgiving, neutral flight standard model and the extra slice-fighting options on the Max.

Which One's For Me?
Aerojet
This model targets a combination of ball speed and forgiveness, lower spin and a neutral flight. A slightly shallower face height than the LS and its broader range of lofts should accommodate the needs of the majority of average golfers. In terms of depth, its center of gravity is closer to the Max than the LS, meaning it provides more forgiveness on mis-hits vs. the workability of the LS.
Aerojet MAX
The heel and back center weights provide additional draw bias to correct slices and its larger size and shallowest face height provide forgiveness for those players who need the most help launching shots high and correcting mis-hits.
Aerojet LS
This model is designed to produce the least spin and features the tallest face. Interchangeable heel and toe sole weights toward the front allow for tweaking a fade or draw. It produces the lowest flight of the three.

"The sound/feel feedback will let you know when you missed the sweet spot, but it won't punish you on distance or accuracy. Easy club to hit."
Handicap, +4
Medium-Handicapper
“Love the color contrast on the Max and the proportions on the sole. You can swing through the zone at an easy speed with soothing feel and measured flight.”
Handicap, 8
High-Handicapper
"Sole has a lot going on but the top is pretty normal. Pretty forceful at impact. Solar plexis gut punch power."
Handicap, 14
