Need To Know
Last year, Cobra took the market by storm with one of the most popular big sticks in the game. This year, the brand has raised the bar yet again with the new Cobra Speedzone driver range.
For the new drivers, the Speedzone and Speedzone Xtreme, Cobra says that every component from the internal chassis design to the exterior shaping is engineered to maximize power output.
All you need to know: Best Golf Drivers
After learning everything we needed to know in Miami for the launch of the Speedzone drivers, we put them to the test at Farleigh Golf Club, where we used them on the range, out on the course and indoors with our SkyTrak monitor and TaylorMade TP5 golf balls.

Cobra King Speedzone driver - Key Features
- CNC Infinity Milled Face: milled area of the face expanded to 95% for greater power gains
- Titanium T-Bar Speed Chassis: to create low CG and high inertia resulting in fast, forgiving performance
- High MOI Design: positions weight away from the center of the head to maximize stability on off-center hits for longer, straighter drives
Cobra King Speedzone driver - Looks and Feel
We fell in love with the Cobra King F9 Speedback driver as soon as we saw it last year, but the new Speedzone drivers feel like a step up in every way.
From a design point of view, Cobra hasn't steered too far away from the F9, a smart move given how everyone loved the look of last year's driver, but the Speedzone drivers have that 'mean looking' edge to them.
The black and racing yellow combination works brilliantly, and the racing elements of the driver make it even more attractive, with the small details such as the weights looking like exhaust pipes.
We absolutely love the infinity face and the fact that you can see it from address, while the CNC Milling process is one of our favourite aspects.
Cobra King Speedzone driver - Performance and Forgiveness
In terms of statistics, of course everyone will have different results, but the Speedzone drivers were long and consistent with a really nice sound to them.
Should you buy the Cobra King Speedzone driver?
The Speedzone Xtreme will be very popular in the market this year, as it provides a lot of forgiveness but it's still one of the longest drivers available.
The low-spinning Speedzone driver is perfect for those low handicap players who love to work the ball, but we think even the best of players will get a lot out of the Speedzone Xtreme too.
With a price tag of £349, the new drivers from Cobra are one of the most affordable new drivers on the market this year. If you're thinking of adding a new big stick to your bag, make sure you give both of these drivers a go.
