In this section, we will discuss how the Fly-Z will fare when compared to other brands. Cobra has designed the drivers to have six different settings in each head and the feedback was hugely positive, with each player seeing noticeable improvements via Trackman when compared with their current driver. The shaft upgrade options also bring a nice touch, allowing you to customize the driver further to your exact needs. However, it sacrifices the signature sound of Cobra drivers, slightly muting the sound due to the carbon fiber material, especially when the adjustable weight is moved up front. Pull-hook yes, left-to-right draw no.
The spin produced might be a little too much for players with three-digits swing speed. Another added benefit of the offset design is that it is a natural flight booster. Given the performance of the BiO Cell line, their position makes an awful lot of sense. In combination with Cobra's Forged E9 Zone Face with its specially designed sweet spot, the speed channel increased the club's forgiveness to another level. I was testing the Bio Cell out at the same time I was testing out the Bio Cell+ and have to say it was just a tad bit more forgiving than the Bio Cell+, which it is supposed to be. A sidenote, as with all adjustable drivers, you should probably get the BiO Cell fitted to your specific swing, to make sure you get the best results out of the club. Thank you Cobra for building such a forgiving and long hitting club.
There is absolutely no form of adjustability on the Adams Blue, not even adjustable loft. With the reduced contact area provided by the SmartPad, they can easily rotate the head open or closed without resistance from the sole surface hitting the ground. Moving into 2014, Cobra continues to push the fashion-y aspect of equipment by offering several color choices on each of their clubs. The Bio Cell+ is 440cc but it has a shallow face and is pretty long front to back, which makes it look a bit bigger than it actually is. Most of the club, from the crown to accents on the sole, looks like it was dipped in lacquer. Let's start with some of the features and technology in the Cobra BiO Cell driver first.
So far nobody has reported him missing. Been eyeing this driver for a few weeks now as I was a completely different golfer when I was fitted for my current driver 4 years ago and this driver seems to fit my needs. Toronto Golf Reviews is an opinion-based blog that provides reviews and golf news from a certain point of view. This is a good 3 wood, no doubt, and I truly enjoyed hitting it. Loft adjustment is also really easy to do yourself. If you do have the swing speed of above 100 mph, however, you will truly benefit from this club, with its rare balance of forgiveness, distance, and performance. Nike may have something cool, but still struggles to get any notoriety for their product.
The white edged half moon around the side works perfectly well for alignment, particularly with the Cobra logo in the front middle. Shaft We have discussed that the offset design will increase flight trajectory. It has the center of gravity placed as low and back as possible, and it utilized a very light shaft. The Matrix White Tie is, on the other hand, slightly lighter at 55g, and offers high launch with low spin. I'd recommend it to all golfers who want more distance and straightness on their drives and especially to those golfers who want a forgiving club that will still prove itself when struck perfectly. The fairway wood carries the same tech, and I think its great. I would love to see how this head performs with a premium, low-spin shaft as the head itself is hot, forgiving and gives a slightly higher trajectory, which will benefit a lot of players.
The Fly Z+ offers the longest distance. Say goodbye to my Cleveland - I'm in love! Does the Cobra Fly Z look good on the golf course? The R15 is not a game-improvement driver, so forgiveness is not its emphasis. MyFly8 allows 8 different adjustable loft angle settings that can be adjusted on the fly, hence the name. One thing to keep in mind is that the R15 is designed more for better players, and only players with swing speeds above 100mph will truly benefit from the R15. Cobra was able to achieve this great feel by introducing their all-titanium, 440 cc head. How does the Cobra Fly Z driver feel? SmartPad creates a surface for golfers to have more control and workabilty on those technical shots. Cobra is known to have the motto we are the cool stuff that works, and the Fly-Z series perfectly represented that mission.
I am know reaching sand traps that I never reached before. In our opinion, the Cobra Fly Z driver achieved a rare balance of forgiveness and distance color, which is saying alot, considering it is a mission sought by so many golf equipment manufacturers even today. It's still a long driver, just not quite as long as some of the others. Again, the key value is its balance and consistency. Little bit overwhelming to be honest…but in a good way. The back position of the movable weight will produce roughly a similar effect with the Fly-Z model.
Where the Bio Cell driver really stands out is in the forgiveness category. The creates a different cosmetic look at address, but more importantly redistributes even more weight to achieve a lower spinning, neutral bias, mid-trajectory 440cc head. Drivers were outfitted with Aldila Speed Tuned Cobra shafts — 50g A , and 55g R,S. In both aspects, the Fly-Z is better with its signature crash. We have also mentioned that the sound on the Fly-Z+ is slightly muted and dull, due to its carbon fiber material on the crown.
The reasonable expectation is that it will produce more spin. It means that golfers can now customise their club based on swing speed higher lofts for slower swing speeds and lower lofts for faster swing speeds , weather lower lofts to bring ball flight down on windy days and course conditions higher lofts for more carry. If you are looking for a heavier shaft and desire a slightly higher flight, this one is for you. The ball flew straight and right toward the fairway… 325 Yards and bounced onto the edge of the green. I may be in the minority, but the colors look weird. Andrew Inchbald loved the orange option and was especially impressed by the size of the sweetspot while fellow 16-handicapper Bryan Slater was the last to test the driver, and also noted a performance improvement on off-centre hits — ideal for higher handicappers.
