The Cobra Fly Z falls into the category of game improvement drivers and it retails for $329. What’s the most remarkable about the Fly Z is the blend between forgiveness and excellent distance, which will definitely help you deliver your straightest and longest shots ever. In order to increase the moment of inertia and also to add to forgiveness levels, Cobra put a removable weight on the sole, positioned low and into the back, thus achieving a deeper location for the center of gravity (CG). The head of the driver is made from titanium and has 440cc, which is one of the largest in its segment, focused again at getting the center of gravity as far back as humanly possible. Cobra used a clever design for masking the sheer size of the driver’s head (they put some shading graphics around it) and they did a pretty cool job in my view. Upon closer inspection, I noticed the new Speed Channel located around the rim of the driver’s face, put there for enhancing the flex upon ball impact, thus adding to ball speed during your swings. The super forgiving Forged E9 face works in tandem with the Speed Channel, making for a driver which performs and feels awesome when it comes to off center hits.
In terms of accuracy and forgiveness, the Cobra Fly Z is the definition of a game improvement driver in all its aspects, being a truly mistake eraser through and through, really hard to miss, with consistency as the keyword. Using it on the golf course will put a smile on your face, due to its huge sweet spot (the size of a baseball) and you’ll enjoy repeatable results and tons of forgiveness, round after round. The huge footprint really boosts confidence and in terms of design, the Fly Z is basically a fashion statement, being a true head turner. Bottom line, this is the quintessential golf gear when it comes to game improvement drivers, being very user friendly and forgiving; also pretty long, making for the perfect choice if you’re a mid to high handicapper.
