First things first about my Cobra Fly-Z Hybrid, it’s very blue. Not something you initially expect as you pull off the grey bit of material they call a head cover. Honestly it’s like a sock you’d find in your Grandad’s drawer! Apart from the colour and the sock, Cobra have done a decent job with making it look pleasing to the eye.
Unlike many hybrids, the club is quite wide and you’ll find that it’s almost like hitting a fairway wood.
Looks aren’t everything though, and many of us have found that out in some way or another before!
Like every other ‘tag line’, Cobra offer unprecedented forgiveness and distance, the two most commonly used words in golf marketing. We tested their King range earlier this year and they really do live up to that generic motto most brands preach. The Fly Z does fly. This is probably down to the Speed Channel Force and the 9 sweet spots Cobra have always implemented in their woods.
From the Rough
Due to its width, it was slightly more difficult to get the ball out of the longer stuff in comparison to the distance we had been achieving off the fairway. In wetter conditions, or thicker rough, it won’t be as easy to get the ball up in the air out of awkward lies. As with Cobra, when we did get it out the thick stuff, it sailed.
- 2-3H – 16-19 degrees
- 3-4H – 19-22 degrees
- 4-5H – 22-25 degrees
Adjustable loft through “MyFly” technology
A really solid option from Cobra. We weren’t sure how it would perform when we pulled it from its sock but it offers a broad range of options for us to choose from at a reasonable price too. If you want something that’s going to guarantee distance, Cobra are pretty good at this.
