Cobra Fly-Z Driver
Cobra Fly-Z Driver
Dialed-In Weighting, Dialed-Up Distance
The Fly-Z Driver is engineered to deliver the ultimate blend of maximum distance and increased forgiveness. The low, back CG Zone Weighting delivers low spin, mid-high launch and fast ball speeds across the face. The E9 Zone Face structure and Crown Zone Weighting combine to create a large amount of discretionary weight in an all titanium driver. The weight saved is strategically positioned low and back in the head where the back zone weight is located. While the MyFly8 technology allows golfers to choose from eight simple adjustable loft/trajectory settings (9.0-12.0) to maximize distance and manage trajectory while SmartPad delivers a square face at address regardless of loft setting.
- Forged E9 Zone Face
- It's not only about shaving weight… It’s about where you put it. COBRA R/D optimized three key weight zones that make all the difference when you’re going for distance.
- Crown Zone
- A crown that really turns heads. If you want extreme distance, you have to be willing to make a few sacrifices. For Cobra, that meant repositioning weight. They removed weight from the crown to reposition it low and back in the head for a low, deep CG that delivers extreme forgiveness on off-center hits and excellent distance across the entire face.
- Back CG Zone Weighting
- Cobra went backwards to push golf forward. Developers took all that discretionary weight and placed it in a uniquely engineered sole weight that maximizes a low CG position and high MOI deliver incredible distance with forgiveness across the face. Making it Cobra’s longest, most forgiving driver yet.
- Standard Shaft: Matrix VLCT SP
- Standard Grip: Cobra Lamkin Rel Black
Matching headcover included.
Cobra Fly-Z Driver Expert Review
Written By: Bob Gomavitz
The new Cobra Fly Z comes with a back-weight CG and Forged E9 face for 2015. I tested the basic all-black colorway, but was wishing it was the bright orange bomber. Though I prefer a slightly open face with my drivers I felt the head sat a tad on the closed side, but nothing that I could not handle. Paired with the stock Matrix VLCT SP shaft, the black head and gold trim went well the shaft graphics. The loft adjustments come from Cobra’s MyFly Sleeve adjuster, and I set this head to 9.5 degrees. The back-weight comes in different weights, however I only tried the stock 8 gram weight. I like this type of offering because it really helps you dial in your preferred ball flight and the feel of the club in your hands. The head felt good to me, and the sound was not muted, nor was it very loud. When it came to playability, I felt the head provided ample forgiveness.
Who's It For?
The Cobra Fly Z is a head that the majority of the players out there can use. Its simple adjustability, confidence building head shape, and ease to swing are all things that most players look for in a driver.
For me, I launched the ball too high even in the lowest setting which was 9 degrees. I just was not able to get a launch angle that would produce a mid-level, piercing ball flight with the Cobra Fly Z. I would have loved to have had the time to really dial in this head with the adjustable back weight, and maybe pair it with a different shaft to see what it could do. As is, it just did not fit my game.
