Over the past few seasons Cobra have released a string of superb drivers that have taken the golfing world by storm. Powered by Infinity Face technology both the F9 and latterly the SZ range of drivers delivered in every possible way. They were extremely pleasing on the eye, created huge amounts of ball speed and were also extremely forgiving. Often costing less than other drivers on the market they were a hit with both amateur golfers and professionals alike.
2021 sees the release of their RADSPEED range of clubs and judging by the reaction from most independent reviews Cobra have hit the jackpot once again. The RADSPEED driver is not just the F9 or SZ driver reworked, it is something far more exciting than that. It has been created using new Radial Weighting technology which has unlocked even more ball speed and increased forgiveness levels.
The Cobra RADSPEED XD is one of three models in the new RADSPEED range and is aimed at the golfers that tends to impart too much slice spin on the ball. Previous Cobra’s draw biased drivers have been made with an offset head, which are not always to everyone’s taste. The RADSPEED XD manages to produce a significant amount of draw bias from a straight neck which will surely prove to be hugely popular amongst slicers everywhere.
The Cobra RADSPEED XD driver takes its name from a popular engineering concept called Radius of Gyration, which is the distance from the Centre of Gravity to the position of the technology. The Cobra R&D team found that by increasing both the Radius of Gyration and the distance between the front and back clubhead weights, they could create a blend of speed, forgiveness and spin control that had not been achieved before. Cobra’s new technology has been named Radial Weighting and has the potential to take your driving to a new level.
The Radial Weighting technology has been used to great effect in the RADSPEED XD driver and is positioned in the heel to promote draw bias and reduce unwanted slice spin. 10g’s of fixed weight has been placed in the heel to slow this area of the club down and encourage the toe to move more quickly and facilitates easier squaring of the clubface. A 14g fixed weight is positioned at the back of the head which increases the stability of the XD and makes it supremely forgiving. Finally, an 8g fixed weight has been placed at the front of the head to increase ball speed and serves to make this one of the longest draw biased drivers ever made.
A huge 13g’s of weight has been saved using a lighter T-Bar Speed Chassis and a thinner Carbon Fibre Wrap Crown and this has allowed the weight to be more effectively distributed. The Cobra RADSPEED XD driver also benefits from a CNC Milled Infinity Face with each clubface taking an incredible twenty-five minute to individually mill. This painstaking process allows Cobra to make each clubface with tolerance levels that are up to five times more precise. The face is made incredibly thin for explosive speeds and has ideal curvatures to help correct off centre hits.
If you are a golfer that often struggles with a slice, then the new Cobra RADSPEED XD driver could possibly be a game changer. With a superb blend of draw bias, explosive speed and extreme forgiveness the XD looks set to become one of the best-selling drivers of the year.
