Cobra Air-X Hybrids Review (SUPER Light Rescues)
The Air-X are a super Cobra hybrid built for speed
The Cobra Air-X hybrids are new for 2022 with the lightweight rescues designed for golfers looking for extra swing speed and distance.
The Air-X hybrids earned a gold label from Golf Digest “Hot List” in 2022, which grades every new release. They certainly are an impressively well thought out club, providing more forgiveness and a high launch for golfers that need it.
With the same mission in mind as the new Air-X drivers, fairway woods and, to a lesser extent, irons, the hybrid series is all about chasing speed and introducing a slice resistance to benefit your game.
What Cobra says about the Air-X hybrids:
“The AIR-X hybrids are lightweight, easy to swing and feature a heel weighted and offset design to promote straighter and more accurate ball flights.
“The AIR-X hybrid features an extremely lightweight construction so every swing feels effortless, (and) 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 shots flying straight down the fairway.”

Cobra Air-X Hybrids Design & Features
Cobra Air-Xs have been designed to be one of the most advanced rescue clubs on the market, engineered at an unprecedented weight, shaving eight total ounces from its previous release.
The Air-X has a new lightweight crown design that allows for faster ball speeds, and as a result greater distance.
Similar to the Air-X fairway woods, the weight in the club has been strategically dispersed towards the heel to increase the moment of inertia in efforts to combat the slicing of the golf ball.
This increase in MOI, paired with the offset of the club face, allows for a more forgiving strike and higher launch.
The clubs have a deep face that makes it easier to hit the ball higher and more consistently than in previous similar models from Cobra like the Airspeed hybrids.
The hybrids are available in 3-hybrid (19 degrees), 4-hybrid (22 degrees), 5-hybrid (25 degrees), 6-hybrid (28 degrees) and 7-hybrid (31 degrees).
