Cobra Golf have produced a fantastic new family of LTDx drivers, metal woods and hybrids. In this review, Alex from GolfMagic tests the Cobra LTDx drivers.
The first Cobra King LTD driver was released in 2016 and it was the driver that Bryson DeChambeau used to win the 2021 Arnold Palmer Invitational.
One of the main pieces of technology with the Cobra LTDx driver is PWR-COR technology. This places multi-material internal and external weighting in the clubhead.
You can see the external weighting on the outside of the clubhead. There is tungsten and steel weighting inside the club which produces a forward CG, faster ball speeds and increased forgiveness.
What is very interesting is the H.O.T Face technology. This stands for Highly Optimised Topology which has replaced the old E9 face.
Cobra Golf have run hundreds of simulations to test all parts of the clubface. They have changed and optimised the thickness of the face in 15 different locations to increase ball speed.
The Cobra LTDx has over 5000 MOI which is superb for forgiveness. This is the feature that Alex likes the most and it has the potential to be the most forgiving driver of 2022.
The Cobra LTDx driver has a carbon crown with a slightly different colour skin to the old Cobra RadSpeed driver.

With off-centre hits, Alex still produced good distance, consistent ball speeds and an impressive smash factor. The LTDx LS driver is harder to hit and preferred by better players.
The Cobra LTDx LS mainly aids shot-shaping and there is less emphasis on spin, which suits the needs of tour professionals. The LTDx LS Max has a slight draw bias.
Alex still found that it was forgiving and the smash factor was fantastic, which essentially means Alex found the sweet spot when his ball-striking was not exactly perfect.
With each driver in the new Cobra LTDx family, the feel is brilliant and this is because of each technological feature.
