Cobra, in my opinion, has become the BEST brand for complete sets for female golfers that can afford them. Yes, they are far pricier than Callaway’s Strata sets, but the quality speaks for itself.
If you have the money and want to purchase a set of clubs that will perform well and last a lifetime, the Cobra 2020 F-Max Airspeed women’s complete set is the one for you. If you are not comfortable with spending the $1,000 to buy this set, I’d recommend buying the cheaper Strata sets until you can afford a higher quality set.
Here’s our honest review of the Cobra F-Max Airspeed complete set for women.
Appearance: Professional & Well Built
The complete set comes in two color options: black/pink or white/copper. Personally, I much prefer the black/pink, as the bag will stay looking cleaner longer.
Of all the complete sets on the market for women, this one screams “professionalism” and “high quality”. Most complete sets, on the other hand, scream “I’m new to golf and have no idea what I am doing.”
Truthfully, it’s strange to even call this a complete set. The term “complete set” in golf typically means cheaply made clubs for beginners ONLY to allow them to step on the course with all necessary clubs at the lowest price possible. If better women golfers were looking for high quality clubs, they would typically be forced to buy each club separately (driver, woods, hybrids, irons, wedges, putter, etc).
Cobra is making it easy though. All of their top of the line clubs. One purchase. Easy peazy.
The Cobra F-Max Airspeed women’s complete set comes with the following: driver (15 degrees), 3 wood, 5 wood, 7 wood, 5 hybrid, 6-PW irons, sand wedge, a mallet putter, and a premium cart bag. The driver, woods, and hybrid all come with great looking headcovers. And again, all of these clubs are made just like their premium individual clubs, but sold at a discount price when bundled all together into a complete set.
All of the clubs have a good bit of offset. That offset allows your hands to be a little ahead of the ball at impact, which will encourage better contact and a draw-bias shot shape. Although more offset is best for beginner and higher handicaps, some mid to low handicap women golfers also prefer some offset as well.
The Cobra F-Max Airspeed golf bag has 14 individual dividers for each club. It also has 9 zippered compartments and a large beverage cooler that is insulated.
Performance: Long & Forgiving
The main goal with the Cobra F-Max Airspeed women’s complete set? Lightweight (to be as long as possible) and forgiving.
If you struggle with generating enough club head speed and consistently hitting the center of the club face, this set is the one for you. Again, though, only if you can afford it.
Cobra took out as much weight from the clubheads as they possibly could while still maintaining club face strength. The shafts are also super light to allow you to generate as much club head speed as possible. Keep it mind that lighter clubs are typically slightly less consistent, but you’ll get used to the set over time and improve your consistency.
The centers of gravity of the clubs are super low, and there is lots of perimeter weighting to result in a larger sweet spot. That combination results in high ball flights and high levels of forgiveness on off-center hits.
When it comes to durability, there is no question that this complete set will last 10x longer than Strata complete sets, and at least 20x longer than off-branded complete sets that are very enticing due to their low price tags.
Overall, the Cobra F-Max Airspeed complete set will be longer, more accurate, and more durable than other complete sets on the market.
At the time of this writing, the Cobra F-Max Airspeed ladies complete set is selling for $1,200. That may sound like an insane amount – I get that. If you aren’t willing to spend that much money on a set of golf clubs, consider the Strata complete sets that offer a great value at a fraction of the price of this set.
If you are looking for a set that will last you a lifetime, this set is the one for you. Think of it this way: If this set lasts you 30 years, that would be a cost of just $40 a year. If you buy a $400 set that lasts you just 4 years before breaking at the hosel, that would be a cost of $100 per year, and then you STILL have to buy another set of clubs.
I live by the motto buy once, cry once when it comes to something that you really care about. One higher-quality purchase now will save you from having to rebuy crappy products down the road. But if golf is something that you don’t expect to be a very large part of your life, then this set isn’t the one for you.
