Cobra King Speedzone Hybrid

With the King Speedzone Hybrid, Cobra has created a supremely versatile club that will suit golfers seeking a powerful ball flight and heightened forgiveness.

Whether from the tee, the fairway or escaping the rough, the hybrid has become a fixture in most modern golfers’ bags. The King Speedzone is one of the best on the market this season.

With four lofts available, it’s slightly larger than the average hybrid but this doesn’t mean it’s not playable or useable for the low handicapper.

A weight has been placed into the back of the club to create a higher launch and we definitely noticed this in testing. The ball flight is impressive, and we were pleased with the soft landings we were achieving, even from significant distance out.

The King Speedzone hybrids are available in variable and one-length options and feature a hollow split rail system that allows for more flex than solid rails, again for higher launch and increased distance.

Nice curves

The King Speedzone offers a slightly more curved, pear-shaped look than many modern hybrids but that was something we found appealing when addressing the ball. The slightly larger head size inspires more confidence than in some recent models that often look more like an oversized iron.

The sound and feel off the face are strong but, even with off-centre hits, you feel that you’re getting the very most out of the shot. The claim of a 70% larger hot spot area is well supported.

Built in technology

The hybrid features Cobra Connect which is an Arccos sensor that allows you to track your performance patterns using the Arccos caddy app. It’s a nice touch that adds to the overall offering.

Overall, this is a powerful club delivering a strong ball flight and consistent forgiveness.
