Cobra Radspeed Hybrid Review

While the hybrid market is dominated with some very solid golf clubs, the Cobra Radspeed does a lot to stand out from the crowd thanks to its distance, versatility and value for money.

The first thing we noticed, when testing, is how the Radspeed hybrid looks at address. It sets up really well behind the ball, is easy to align and you can see plenty of the face too, which makes it one of the best hybrid golf clubs for high handicappers who might struggle to hit this sort of club off the deck.

Cobra's legendary Baffler Rails are still present, but now they are hollow split rails which allows them to flex by up to 70 per cent more for some added ball speed. This is a unique and incredibly useful bit of technology that Cobra has been successfully implementing for generations of hybrids.

As a result, it makes the Radspeed as easy to hit on the fairway as it is out of an awkward lie in the rough. What's more, the Radspeed comes with what Cobra has called Radial Weighting (RAD), where the weighted areas have been pushed further apart to produce the best ball speed and forgiveness combination.

We could feel the fast ball speeds during our testing and the Radspeed feels very hot and fast off the face, without feeling like it's out of control. It also produced the most carry distance - the 19° loft carrying 221 yards on average - when compared to a number of the best golf hybrid clubs released this year.

The shaft of the Radspeed is slightly longer than the other hybrids we tested - which might account for the extra club head speed -  but this didn't make it any harder to control and the extra few yards were very useful out on course.

Given the praise this Cobra Radspeed hybrid review has highlighted, it's clear this represents excellent value for money. Along with the value for money, there is also the addition of an Arccos Smart grip as standard, with the Radspeed also offering excellent all round playability and genuine distance from multiple lines.
