I am fairly new to golf(2 years this summer) and was using a 5 year old set that I got off of ebay, well I consistently score in the low 100’s some times hit a 98 or 99.  I have had my eye on Snakes for a while and was telling my wife about this set of clubs, so she went picked me up a set of S3 max 3h,4h, 5-PW! (awesome)  This morning I went out to play a round and hit them for the first time.  I wasn’t able to get any range time in with them before hand so I wasn’t sure how they were going to perform, not really knowing to expect or what kind of yardages I was going to get I was a little nervous.  Well let me tell you I was shocked and amazed on how well they hit and felt.  The defiantly added yards to my shots, and I shot a 85!!!!!  I can’t wait for my next round!

My wife said that I should be giving her credit for the 85, little does she know that now I am looking to replace my Cobra SS 350 driver (the thing is from 2003) I hit it well, I can only imagine how I will drive with a new Snake Shooter.

I was using some clone clubs… When I first got them they were a step up from my original complete set I picked up at a garage sale but as time went on my score and the way I hit the ball never changed..So one day I rented a set of Cobra S3 MAX at my local golf club house and let me tell you I am not Tiger Woods and I am not ready for the PGA but I love these S3 MAX…. Cobra the S3 MAX Rock ....thank you

I took four years off from playing a round.  Occasionally, I would hit the range in that span of time, but was so frustrated with my Nike Slingshot irons.  Last year, I decided that I was going to dedicate myself to the game again.  I went to my local Golfsmith, explained my situation/game and was fitted for the S3 Max.  Let me tell you, since I made the switch, my love for the game has skyrocketed.  These clubs really do help with mishits because I have my fair share of them, but now I have consistent ball flight and pattern.  And in terms of the distance…well, I hit these really long.  Furthermore, they are a great looking club, aesthetically pleasing to the eye.  Plus, the railed sole helps to cut the grass when you find yourself in the rough.  Overall, a great club at a great value that helped me further my game.  I am looking forward to Cobra becoming a leader in the golf world once again.  On a side note, smart move for adding Rickie Fowler!

Just coming back into the game after a 10-year layoff, found my old Hogan blades just weren’t doing it anymore. Picked up a used set of Cobra 3100 irons and loved them. Then, for my 60th birthday, my wife surprised me with a set of S3 Max irons (5-SW) that I’d been checking out in a local retailer. These clubs have injected new life into my game. I’m hitting the ball as far, if not longer, as I did in my prime playing days. Recently added the Cobra Baffler 4-hybrid. Another outstanding piece of equipment. Next up? A set of Cobra S3 Max irons for my wife.

As a high handicapper playing once or twice a week, shooting in the mid to high 90’s and a recent retiree at 65, I thought I could use a new set of irons. I have been using a generic set of cavity-back irons for the past 10 years and decided to try some of the new technology. I bought a Senior set of S3 Max Cobra irons and they have made an amazing improvement to my game. After only a dozen rounds, these clubs have taken 5 to 6 strokes off my score. They hit longer and straighter than my old set and all the demo clubs that I tried before buying the S3 Max irons. I would highly recommend these clubs to anyone trying to improve their game.

I was having trouble hitting my set of X-22 irons I purchased last year, I hit a lot of hooks and low shots. I tried a friends SZ irons a few times and found them easier for me to hit. Our club had a set of S9 II irons in the used club bin I tried the six iron on the course and on the range and it was sweet! In June we had a Cobra demo day and after some questions and ALOT of range balls I got fitted for the S3 Max 4-GW. Been playing them since the last week in June & they are definitely the right clubs for me, Straighter, higher and longer I like. Great irons Cobra!

Just received my 4-G irons and I love them!  I had been playing a low cost off the shelf brand for years.  I was looking at Callaway and Taylor Made when I happened to go into Golfmart ABQ during a Cobra Demo day .... after a number of swings and a lot of questions, I got fitted for these clubs and ordered them.  just got them this week and already my ball contact, distance and ball flight are much improved!

I just purchased S3MAX irons and so far so good.  The wedges go farther than my PIngs.  Guess I need a lob wedge.
