Cobra LTDx Fairway Wood Review – Introduction.
The LTDx Fairway wood is on the fairway woods in the LTDx lineup comprising of the LTDx Max Fairway Wood, which obviously the most forgiving of the 3 models, and the LTDx LS Fairway wood which is the low spin version designed for the highly skilled players.
This standard LTDx fairway wood is the ultimate distance Club and is designed for golfers looking for more distance, high ball flight, and straighter shots.
Cobra LTDx Fairway Wood Review – Basic Features/Technologies.
The LTDx Fairway wood features the same technologies as other LTDx models, about 5 key pieces of Technologies
Starting off with the PWR-COR technology which is the multi-material weighting system that allows a substantial amount of weight to be placed deep and forward, combining low-spin and faster ball speeds for enhanced Distance.
Secondly, there is the new H.O.T Face Technology which stands for Highly Optimized Topology. It is basically an Artificial Intelligence computer-designed Variable Thickness design that provides 15 hot zones across an expanded area of the Clubface, essentially expanding the sweetspot.
This Club, the LTDx fairway has an 8 gram fixed back weight that stabilizes the Club and provides forgiveness on mishit, and promotes a higher ball flight.
The LTDx Fairway woods lineup offers progressive Rails throughout their heads, with the 3-Wood providing no rail to provide the sweeping, shallow type of swing, but as you progress through the 5 and 7 woods, the Rails are enhanced to help players get the ball out of a trickish situation and experience better turf interaction and steeper swings.
Finally, there is the new Lightweight Carbon Crown that is a little lighter than titanium and frees up more discretionary, allowing Cobra golf to make the LTDx Fairway with the more optimal CG and a higher MOI which translates to more forgiveness.
There are 3 different clubs in the standard LTDx Fairway model, there are 3 wood, 5 wood, and 7 wood.
The LTDx fairway provides 3 different loft options in the 3, 5, and 7 woods, with each having 8 hosel settings that allow you to adjust and fine-tuned the loft and lie of the Club.
Cobra is using the Project X HZRDUS Smoke IM10 as the standard graphite in regular and stiff flex while the UST Helium Nanacor is the standard stock shaft for Reflex.
The Lamkin Crossline 360 serves as the standards stock grip.
