The SZ line from Cobra is probably their best wood line ever. Cobra has always targeted the mid to high handicapper with their equipment. They make their clubs forgiving, easy to hit and friendly on the wallet. What more can a weekend golfer ask for? The SZ fairway woods are one of Cobra’s entries into the fairway wood market and are designed to complement the very popular SZ titanium drivers.



The SZ fairway woods look a lot like the SZ drivers and they even share some of the same technologies. The SZ fairway is made from a material called Hyper Steel… a cooler way of saying 355 Maraging Steel. The word “hyper” makes anything sound better… try it. I drive a “hyper” car. Wow that sounds fast! Ok, ok… back to the review. Maraging steel is harder than traditional steel and Cobra is able to do a lot with it. Using a harder material allows the company to make the club walls and face thinner and stronger. The club features heel and toe weighting to help keep the head stable on miss hits. The SZ’s overall size is slightly larger compared to many other fairway woods on the market. Cobra is hoping that consumers feel more confident hitting a larger club. Cobra’s fairway woods are also one of the few available in an offset version. Offset helps close the face through the impact zone… helping correct a slice. Keep one thing in mind… if you want to use the fairway wood off the tee, you may want to consider the non-offset version. It has a much deeper face and would be a lot easier to hit off of the tee or out of the rough. The overall look of the SZ fairway is good… it’s fairly clean and it’s a nice club to look down on. The stock shafts are good for the average player. The club is available in both steel and graphite although the steel shafted ones have been a bit tricky to get since being released last year. Most customers go with the graphite version to match their Cobra SZ drivers...

    The SZ fairways have received good reviews. Reasonable price... Reasonable quality. That said, I had the 3 and 5, with stock "S" graphite shafts, in the bag for 3 rounds. Couldn't get rid of them fast enough. To me, every ball felt "hard". Every shot felt like you were hitting a Top Flite XL. Just couldn't get used to the feel and the high pitched "ting". As with any club, before purchasing make every attempt to demo.
