For the last 50 years Cobra has delivered incredible design and innovation in the golf industry and we continue to see them push the envelope with their latest driver, the Aerojet.
The Cobra Aerojet driver includes an all-new aerodynamic head shape, new AI face design and new internal weighting. So how does this new technology work and how does each driver model differ? Here’s what you need to know.
What options do I have?
There are three models in the Aerojet range: the Aerojet, Aerojet MAX and the Aerojet LS. Each model has been aimed to fit the requirement of each golfer, whether you’re looking for speed and distance, forgiveness or straighter drives or a combination. These days, brands need to cater for audience needs and the Aerojet does just that.
What new tech do all models feature?
They all feature the new aerodynamic shaping, which allows the club to travel through the air faster. They have a new gloss carbon crown and sole plating with the new AI design PWRSHELL H.O.T Face and the PWR-BRIDGE weighting. The face design has 15 hot spots across the face so, no matter where you strike it, it will still maintain high speeds and distances with optimal launch. The PWR-BRIDGE weighting design is a 13g weight that sits internally, low and behind the driver face. This helps support the face when flexing to deliver maximum energy transfer for faster ball speeds across the whole face. That’s good news for all golfers.
How does AI influence design?
Design is always one of the toughest things when making sure new technologies work but now, with AI design, not only can you see if the new tech works, R&D boffins can now work on making significant improvements. With the H.O.T face AI design, this was put into what is essentially a supercomputer to come up with a concept.
What does carbon do in a driver?
Carbon is now widely seen in a lot of drivers in the modern game and it features in the Aerojet drivers as well. Carbon is a good material to use because it is very strong and lightweight, making it easy to save weight when designing the clubhead. That’s where the gains come from. Saving weight allows the R&D team to redistribute the weight and position it where it will optimise performance.
Which Aerojet driver will suit you?
For faster swing speeds and lower handicappers, the Aerojet LS is the low spinning and lower launching option. This features Cobra’s most aggressive and most aerodynamic head shape to deliver faster club speed. For low to mid handicappers, the standard Aerojet has a weight at the back for a higher launching, lower spinning head with more forgiveness. It will easily cater to most players. Higher handicappers should look to the Aerojet MAX. This draw bias shape is the most forgiving option and will help you straighten out the ball flight for more fairways hit. It’s a mid-to-low spinning head with a high launch to make sure you get the most distance possible.
Are they expensive?
With all the technology, AI design and new Aerodynamics, you would think this would be up there with some of the more expensive offerings in the market. But the Cobra Aerojet range is amongst the most affordable of the latest premium drivers released in 2023, retailing at £429. With this being Cobra’s best driver to date, this is a brand-new line of drivers that is definitely worth considering.
