Cobra's 370 kick-started driving playability for the masses, and though many more may now have come on-board the old master has not lost its touch. Long, straight and very solid. Perhaps harsh to say if you can't hit this try another sport – but not that harsh!
This is a driver that can be used by the masses.

454cc titanium/graphite head with indents on crown and twin rear sole weights. Ultralight graphite crown allows 15g to be moved low and back for higher launch angle and more carry. Dual sole weights are positioned for a high launch, low spin, left-biased ball flight to offer maximum assistance to average golfers. Mitsubishi SL-45 shaft weighs just 45g (less than the grip) to promote greater swing speeds.
In his current role, Neil is responsible for testing drivers and golf balls. Having been a part of the Golf Monthly team for over 15 years and playing off a handicap of 3, he has the experience to compare performance between models, brands and generations. For 2022 he thinks the main trend in drivers is: "In a word, consistency. Whilst all the brands are talking about ball speed (and the new drivers are certainly long), my biggest finding has been how much more consistent the ball flights are. Mishits don't seem to be causing the same level of drop-off or increase in the spin numbers. This means that more shots seem to be flying the way you want them to!" As far as golf balls are concerned the biggest development is in the, "three piece, non-Tour, urethane-covered section. For regular golfers, these models offer superb performance at both ends of the bag without denting your wallet quite as much as the premium Tour-played options."
Originally working with the best coaches in the UK to produce instruction content, he is now the brand's Digital Editor and covers everything from Tour player interviews to gear reviews. In his time at Golf Monthly, he has covered equipment launches that date back well over a decade. He clearly remembers the launch of the Callaway and Nike square drivers as well as the white TaylorMade driver families, such as the RocketBallz! If you take a look at the Golf Monthly YouTube channel, you'll see his equipment videos dating back over a decade! He has also conducted 'What's In The Bag' interviews with many of the game's best players like Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm. Over the years, Neil has tested a vast array of products in each category and at drastically different price-points.
