Cobra Aerojet

Cobra Golf’s newest club family is called Aerojet, comprised of drivers, fairway woods, hybrids, and irons. The drivers include major upgrades to last year’s models, such as shaping, internal structure, and face geometry improvements. The Aerojet irons from Cobra Golf replace the LTDx models of last year. They feature a new internal stiffening and weighting called PWR-BRIDGE in both variable length and one length.

Cobra engineers have succeeded in creating three driver shapes, each of which materially reduces the downswing aerodynamic drag meaning more club speed for the same amount of effort. Key to the drag reduction is the rounding of the top and bottom leading edges of the head plus a reshaping of the crown, which is different for each of the three models. Robotic testing showed that the Aerojet LS (Low Spin) is 1.5mph faster than last year’s LTDx LS with less spin, which translates into more distance.

The PWR-CORE of the LTDx has been replaced with a 13g internal bridge that does not touch the sole nor the wraparound lip of the L-shaped face. Being suspended, if you like, the bridge provides the strength needed in the head but also allows for more face flex at impact. The face, which Cobra calls a PWRSHELL insert, was designed with a new variable thickness geometry using sophisticated AI software.

Also interesting and reflecting the present driver market, the 2023 Aerojet is $50 more than last year’s LTDx Driver.

“The aerodynamic package in the new AEROJETTM family of drivers is our most advanced to date,” said Mike Yagley, Vice President of Innovation COBRA Golf. “We continue to balance the aggressive streamlining with optimum mass and resilience properties to give players maximum club head speed and ball launch characteristics for increased distance.”

Cobra Aerojet Irons

The new Aerojets have a revamped internal weighting feature called PWR-BRIDGE that acts as a head stiffener and replaces the familiar PWR-CORE of the LTDx models. It is “untethered” inside the head, fastened only to the heel and toe, and surrounded by an injected polymer. This lowers the center of gravity close to the sole while allowing the face additional flexing at impact and gaining the benefit of improved feel and dampening from the polymer.

The PWRSHELL face insert has a 22% larger thin area (1.9 mm at its thinnest) compared with the LTDx creating a bigger sweet spot. The combination of the two new features results in 10% more face deflection and up to 1.8 mph higher ball speed.

Visually, compared again with the LTDx, Aerojet heads appear to have a thinner top line since both the front and back edges are chamfered slightly, reducing the apparent thickness at address.

Cobra continues to make irons in both the usual variable length based on loft and in one length, that of a 7-iron or 37.25”, which means players have only a single setup and swing for all of the irons in the bag.
