Hitting The Speedzone
Last week I took out the latest of the Cobra Speedzone Hybrids for a hit. They had some huge hype around them but I wanted to see for myself.
Cobra’s hybrids have become recognisable over the past few years due to the re-inclusion of their traditional Baffler rail technology on the sole of the club. You know, the little rail thingies on the bottom of the sole.
The new Speedzone Hybrids are available in both standard and One Length designs and feature a new Hollow Split Rail which is designed to provide greater ball speed with a higher launch angle which makes it easier to hit off tight or wet lies. The new design creates a 70% larger hot spot area from heel to toe, for higher launch and improved ball speed and also makes mishits fly the same as solid hits.
A fixed weight positioned low and back in the head also promotes a higher ball flight but created an added bonus by increasing stopping power going into the green. So they sort of fly like a wood and stop like an iron.
The forged, high-strength 455 stainless steel face creates incredibly soft feel at impact and the thinner face almost feels like the ball jumps off the face.
The Speedzone is slightly larger than a traditional hybrid head, which helps to raise MOI and provide more forgiveness on off-centre strikes. A square leading edge also makes them easy to line up at address.
Each hybrid is embedded with the Arccos sensor, which allows you to track your accuracy and distance, and learn your own performance patterns, using the complementary app. It’s amazing how it works and you can really study your data after each shot or each round.
As you can gather I loved this club…loved it. I couldn’t find any faults with it at all. Easy to hit off any lie, flies high and long and stops on a dime on the green, looks great at address, easy to line up…I could keep going and going.
Come in and take a look for yourself, they won’t disappoint.
See you next week,
