Cobra RadSpeed Drivers: Review and comparison
COBRA has just unveiled its new RADPSEED line-up of drivers for 2021, with the promise of outstanding speed and forgiveness for golfers of all skill levels.
The RadSpeed family features three new models, RadSpeed, RadSpeed XB, and RadSpeed XD, all of which are all set to become a grand success for the brand.
But, what’s the difference between these new Cobra drivers? Let’s find out.
The new RadSpeed driver is the most solid driver Cobra has ever made.
This driver is designed with a 460cc traditional shape and forward-biased Radial Weighting to appeal to the better player seeking low spin, low launch, and workability.
The chassis features 28g positioned in the front and an additional 10g positioned in the back to create the perfect balance of front and back weighting for speed and stability.
By pushing the weight as far forward and as far back as possible, COBRA engineers were able to design a driver capable of providing the fastest ball speed with extreme forgiveness – an engineering feat that has not been achieved until now.
RadSpeed Extreme Back
The driver features 20g positioned in the back and 8g of fixed weight in the front, making the XB arguably COBRA’s fastest and most forgiving driver to date.
The clubhead is the same as the standard RadSpeed 460cc, but having more weight has been positioned in the back of the XB helps produce the more penetrating ball strike and low spin levels.
It is specially constructed for the players who want distance through faster ball speeds and consistency across the face in the form of forgiveness and stability.
RadSpeed Extreme Draw
The Extreme Draw model is for golfers who want to reduce their slice.
The RadSpeed XD features an oversized (460cc) shape and heel-biased internal Radial weighting to deliver the fastest and straightest ball flight with maximum slice-fighting power.
The driver is made with 10 grams of fixed weight in the heel to help the face turn over quite comfortably for those who need help hitting the ball right-to-left.
What’s the difference?
→ The Extreme Back is more forgiving amongst the RadSpeed drivers.
→ The Extreme Back is having a slight draw bias over the standard RadSpeed driver.
→ XB model is the fastest and straightest of the three RadSpeed drivers.
|Specs||RadSpeed||RadSpeed XB||RadSpeed XD|
|Lie||58.50°/ 59.50°||57.50°/ 59.50°||58.50°|
|Launch||Low||High||Mid to High|
The Final Words
The RadSpeed driver was marginally the longest of everything in its low-spin setting and seemed to be more stable overall than the older King F9 Speedback, RadSpeed XB, on other hand, was nearly as long but even more user friendly thanks to higher, more consistent spin and more forgiveness. Whereas, RadSpeed XD is specially created to straighten up drives and add distance with strategic heel-biased radial weighting.
