Straight From Cobra Golf

Directly, each RADSPEED Driver features a 460cc club head. The standard RADSPEED comes with an adjustable weight that can be switched from front to back to help players dial in launch and spin.  Importantly, all 3 RADSPEED models include Radial Weighting to deliver lower spin without reducing forgiveness. Further, a Thin-Ply Carbon Wrap Crown, featuring a new carbon fiber material that is 30% thinner saves weight to enable longer, straighter drives. Lastly, Cobra’s T-Bar Speed Chassis is a reengineered 7 gram saver that enables the placement of more perimeter weighting to create more stability and forgiveness for the RADSPEED drivers. 

Cobra RADSPEED Driver Series Detailed Review

Cobra RADSPEED Driver Design Review

First up for Cobra is the standard RADSPEED driver. As previously mentioned, the standard RADSPEED driver is the only driver in the Cobra line for 2021 that comes with weight adjustability. Weights can be interchanged to deliver different types of golfers faster ball speed, lower spin, and increased workability compared to the other RADSPEED models. Subjectively, Cobra did a great job with the minor changes of the club head with new graphics. At address, the RADSPEED looks aggressive, giving the notion of speed and stability. Strikingly, by adding another set of ridges atop of the head, Cobra was able to make the original two ridges less pronounced, giving an overall cleaner look to the head and improved aerodynamics.

Cobra RADSPEED XB Driver Design Review

Secondarily, complimenting the standard RADSPEED is the RADSPEED XB (Xtreme Back) . With many of the same design cues of the RADSPEED driver, the RADSPEED XB driver is still fast but offers golfers both higher launch and higher backspin rates than the standard RADSPEED driver head. Critically, the RADSPEED XB is crafted with 20 grams of rear-biased weighting designed to deliver the fastest possible balls speed with the maximum forgiveness. 

Cobra RADSPEED XD Driver Design Review

Lastly, Cobra offers a draw bias driver to help players that need aid in eliminating excessive slice spin. Here, the RADSPEED XD (Xtreme Draw) driver is built with similar mechanics as the standard RADSPEED and RADSPEED XB but with more weight on the heel side. Specifically, as the name suggest, this driver is designed for the most draw possible, with 10 grams of heel biased weight that is designed to fight slicing off the tee, helping to promote a fast straight ball flight.

Cobra RADSPEED Drivers Performance Review

The new driver line offers great technology that can help the average golfer to gain some ball speed and possible distance off the tee. Cobra has spent a great deal of time engineering this new driver line, and at first glance the driver might remind of other drives on the market at this time, however under the carbon wrap, there is a lot of technology, and this driver line does deserve to be considered to replace the gamer of a player who is looking for some more speed and forgiveness.
