Cobra RAD Speed Driver
Who’s It For?
Cobra Golf has been fantastic when it comes to metal woods for decades. Recently, innovations such as a CNC Milled Infinity Face and adjustable weighting have taken Cobra metal woods to a new level. In 2021, Cobra has introduced the RAD Speed drivers featuring a new Radial Weighting system that further optimizes the weight within the clubhead for maximum performance. The standard RAD Speed driver is the most compact of the three RAD Speed driver models and offers the most performance for golfers with high swing speeds or golfers looking to reduce driver spin. Golfers looking for higher launch and more forgiveness may prefer to the RAD Speed XB, while the RAD Speed XD model adds draw bias for those fighting a slice.
The Tech Story
The RAD Speed drivers aren’t named for their “rad” look and design. RAD actually comes from the term Radial Weighting, which is where Cobra engineers focused their efforts to improve performance over previous Cobra drivers. Specifically, Cobra has increased the Radius of Gyration by positioning the sole weights farther behind the center of gravity, increasing MOI and optimizing spin and ball speeds in each of the three driver models. In the standard RAD Speed model, two sole weights of 28 grams and 12 grams are interchangeable from the forward and back positions to help golfers create ideal launch and spin characteristics for their games. The Carbon Wrap Crown system features a new carbon fiber material that is 30% thinner, creating an additional six grams of discretionary weight that has been repositioned for better performance. The refined T-Bar Chassis is seven grams lighter for even more repositioned discretionary weight. In the RAD Speed model, this weight was moved forward to decrease spin. And of course, the CNC Milled Infinity Face returns in the RAD Speed drivers to increase the sweet spot.
