Cobra Air-X Drivers Review (STRAIGHT Neck or OFFSET?)
The Air-X is Cobra's lightest driver yet.
Cobra Air-X drivers are new for 2022 and the lightest yet from the leading manufacturer. Swing faster through the air with one of two models.
Replacing the F-Max Airspeed driver as Cobra’s lightweight offering, the Air-X has been made lighter than its predecessor and features a new faster face design for increased ball speeds as well as swing speeds.
Cobra have introduced two models into the new Air-X range – the Offset which is for straighter drives and the straight neck, which has a non-offset hosel and is for maximum distance off the tee.
The driver is joined in the Air-X series by fairway woods, hybrids and irons.

What Cobra say about the Air-X drivers:
“The AIR-X driver features an extremely lightweight construction so every swing feels effortless.
“The driver uses premium lightweight carbon material to create a lighter clubhead which delivers a sensation of faster speed through the air.
“A faster face design helps you hit the ball just as far even when you don’t make centre contact.
“Heel weighting and an offset hosel will correct your slice and keep your drives flying straight down the fairway.”

Cobra Air-X Drivers Design & Features
There are two models in the Air-X series and the only difference is the hosel design, giving options depending on your preferred shot shape.
The Air-X Offset driver has, as the name suggests, an offset hosel which is designed to deliver straighter drives from the tee.
The Air-X Straight Neck driver model is not offset when it comes to the hosel and boasts a much more traditional look and feel when standing over the ball.
Those are the only difference between the drivers, with both tipping the scales at an extremely light 277g which is the lightest yet in any Cobra driver.
The carbon clubhead has been made lighter in order to deliver more swing speed through the air and is an ideal choice if you are struggling to generate good speeds.
Combined with a new faster face design that has increased the sweet spot, you can expect increased ball speeds from the Air-X even on off centre strikes.
The drivers also feature heel weighting, which works in tandem with the hosel design on both models, to help eradicate the distance killing slice.
Non-adjustable, the Offset model is available in 9 degrees, 10.5 degrees and 12 degrees. The Straight Neck driver is available in 9 degrees and 10.5 degrees only.
Verdict: Is the Cobra Air-X driver any good?
The Air-X isn’t promoted as any all signing, all dancing driver and it hasn’t had the fanfare of the LTDx which was also released in 2022. But this is still a very good driver for the purpose it serves.
This is a lightweight driver specifically designed to help golfers with slower swing speeds increase their speed through the ball and gain more distance.
It does exactly that and the introduction of two hosels options is a smart move by Cobra. At a very reasonable price, golfers looking for more speed off the tee should consider giving the Air-X a go.
