Review: Cobra Fly-Z Hybrid

1

The Takeaway

I tested the 2-3H Fly-Z at the 19 degree setting in the black colorway, even though you can pretty much pick your favorite colorway when you grab one. With the MyFly8 adjustment you can cover a nice range of lofts from hybrid to hybrid. The 19 degree setting that I tested was the high end of loft for the 2-3H version, which means a slightly longer shaft when compared to the 3-4H version that still offers up a 19 degree setting. The Fly-Z was one of the lowest lofted heads that I tested, and it still produced a quick elevation with great control. Like the majority of the heads tested, I saw a slight draw bias with this model, but nothing too drastic.

Who’s it for?

Cobra has done a great job creating a model that will fit a very large range of players with the Fly-Z. With the slight overlapping of loft settings and different length shafts available, players should be able to find a setting and length to help fill a certain distance gap, which for some is their main goal with a hybrid. Being a very easy to play hybrid with an excellent ball flight I do not foresee many players disliking the Cobra Fly-Z Hybrid.

Final Take

Simple to adjust, easy to swing and has a ball flight that I look for from a Hybrid, the Fly-Z is a very nice hybrid by Cobra, and I enjoyed testing it. The Fly-Z had a nice and high ball flight, but does not produce too much spin. At address, I felt the Fly-Z looked just a wee bit busy for my taste. After a few swings I really liked the feel and the ball flight, which quickly made me forget about that busy look as good results tend to do.
