On Course Demo with Cobra Radspeed


Recommended Posts

What is now looking like my previous gamer, Ping G410 LST with Ventus Black 6-X, I averaged 289 and 50 % fairways hit, tracked on Arccos. The reason I even thought about wanting to see what else was out there was due to swing changes, I really fought the left miss for right handed golfer, so I wanted more spin and an open face that the Ping gave me. I have really worked on being more neutral, and really wanted to hit a power fade, but just couldn’t seem to get it with that setup. I play in central Texas so playing in 15 mph winds is a normal day, and into wind I always felt robbed, but down wind it would fly. Enter the Cobra Radspeed...

This is a sample size of 3 rounds, and some range sessions. First thing I noticed was I was hitting fades, and at first a few slices lol for someone would hadn’t hit a fade in years it was a welcome sight, at first. Naturally, after hitting no draws I did get a little confused, but after playing with the weight settings and upright settings I was hitting fades, not weak ones so I couldn’t complain. The next day came back to it, and put back into standard 9* with weight forward, I think it was a length issue, as it was almost an inch longer than what I played before and swing weight was much lighter. Once I was adjusted to the difference I could draw and still hit a fade, my left miss was much less severe. 
 

On course numbers for these 3 rounds, all from my Arccos tracking. I had 13/30 drives over 300 yards! Could have been more but I flew some into bunkers at 290 yards, I’ve never rolled into these bunkers before. I had a drive at 344 and 354 yesterday 💪🏼 Not my longest drive ever, but if these had hit the fairway I may get past my personal best. Speaking of fairways hit, I averaged 46% fairways hit, I usually average 50%. It is somewhat forgiving, and the more I have played the more fairways I’ve hit. Compared to the last 3 rounds with my Ping, I had 5/28 drives over 300 yards. This added distance with not a huge loss of accuracy, if you can call it that for me lol, my strokes gained has been huge! Last two rounds my driving had +5 handicap facet. Very impressed with this driver, only down side is the loss of ball speed, with the Ping I was usually always over 165, but with the Cobra I was low 160s. The Radspeed puts me in a much better launch and spin window, and I haven’t put in my specs yet.

Great stuff. Sounds like the Ping was more efficient in generating ball speed by the Radspeed is spinning less to give you those extra yards

What shaft do you have in the Radspeed?

Oh yeah the Ping was very efficient. I have the MOTORE X F1, it’s a nice shaft, I think if I  tipped it a half inch it be better for me.

That is the exact shaft setup (F1 6x tipped .5”)that I’m leaning towards for the Cobra Connect Challenge

I swing around 115+ and it’s a real smooth shaft, I generally keep my strikes inside or on the circle on the face, and if I was putting it in play full time I would at least a half inch.

That's awesome!  @Lacassem has been hitting some serious bombs with his Motore X - Radspeed combo as well.  

Any idea how much less you're spinning it now?

Yes I’m loving this club. I’ve dropped my spin substantially and I’m hitting 290+ extremely consistently. With winds in the spring here I’m still carrying impressive distance with a very controllable fade. Loving the rad

Interesting thread but you guys are MASHERS! I have a G410 LST with a HZRDUS Smoke 6.0 shaft and I have a range of outcomes (230-280yd drives) I'm pretty much around 250-260 yards off the tee. I was fitted with the Ping TOUR shaft and found that I was able to get about 5-10 yards more from the Smoke (it is 1/2" longer shaft). I'm gonna try the Tensei CK Orange shaft with the LST next. However, I'm intrigued by the RADSPEED since I hit their fairway woods really well. I'm demoing a RADSPEED XB for the next couple weeks with a MID/MID shaft (Motore X F3) as I believe I can average 270+ with the right combo. The XB is an even longer shaft (yikes). We'll see...

No unfortunately my smallish town only has one launch monitor, but I’m working on getting on it to see. I’m just assuming it is much better because into wind I don’t notice it hit the wall and just hang there.

I really liked the Tensei Orange, it just didn’t work best for me.

Arccos really pays off with having the data with which to make good decisions.  Otherwise it's guesswork.

Oh for sure! Before I would just take the scorecard and subtract the yardage in. It would make me feel like a beast, but knowing my actual yardage is so much better in the long run

I am about to venture down the same trail you went on. I've had the Ping G410 Plus with the Project X Evenflow Black and could carry it 280-290 when hit well. I've been struggling with the left miss and have been working on my grip and swing plane. I'll be getting fitted soon for the Cobra Radspeed and will more than likely be avoiding the XB and XD and sticking to the regular. Seeing so many people using the MotoreX F1 6x, I'll have to give that a try next week. 

Did you test the XB or XD?

I did not, fearing the left and no flat settings  (as far as I know) I want to wait and keep working on neutralizing my swing if I do try the XB. I really do like the Motore X F1, it is definitely one to try.
