Cobra Radspeed Hybrid and ONE Length Hybrid Review

By Amy Masand

The new Cobra Radspeed Hybrids are part of a new nine club series that includes four drivers and three woods. In this series, there are two new hybrids from Cobra - the Radspeed Hybrid and the Radspeed ONE Length Hybrid.

Cobra is owned by German sports equipment company Puma. Since they released the F9 Speedback Driver in 2019, they’ve built their reputation as a research-driven golf equipment company that’s positioned to compete with the biggest names in the industry.

Radial Weighting Technology

Same as the drivers and fairway woods in this series, the main technology at work is radial weighting. This increases the distance between the front and back weights and the center of gravity (CG). The variable-length hybrids average 48 grams per head, and the one-length hybrids are just over 84 grams per head.

Like the rest of the series, the main innovation at work here is achieving even faster speeds while maintaining forgiveness. Golflink also has full reviews on the Cobra Radspeed drivers and Fairway Woods.

Reducing Weight to Increase Speed

The technology in this line is consistently used in the drivers, fairway woods and hybrids. These include:

  • CNC Milled Infinity Face - The face design expands the milled area by 95% to increase the zone of maximum ball speed
  • Hollow Split Rails - 70% more flex behind the face
  • Thin-ply carbon crown - New materials are 4 grams lighter and 30% thinner. Weight can be redistributed to the front of the clubhead

One Length vs. Variable Length Setup

The two Cobra Radspeed Hybrids have one main difference. The ONE is better suited to a player who needs more forgiveness (Radspeed hybrid) and the other is a better fit for a golfer who wants to improve their consistency and accuracy (Radspeed one length hybrid.)

Another difference between the two models is the Radspeed hybrid has a variable length set up and the one length hybrid (as the name implies) has a one length set up.

One length setups were popularized by Cobra tour player Bryson DeChambeau. The main advantage is that you can use the same setup from your hybrids to your wedges to improve consistency. The shaft length is the same as a 7-iron.

Bold Styling and A.I. Grip

The clubhead has a traditional shape, and Radspeed woods are available in two color combinations. A black and turbo yellow, or red and peacoat (which is a blue grey.) Cobra clubs have modern yet bold styling, and that’s consistent throughout the Radspeed line.

The standard grip for Radspeed Woods is the Lamkin Crossline (58+) Cobra Connect in Black, which includes COBRA CONNECT technology powered by Arccos golf. An app pairs with your club to give you instant feedback on your performance. The standard shaft is the UST Recoil 480 ESX.

Unique Hybrid Option for Women

Cobra is offering a variation on their hybrids for women golfers. It includes an elderberry colorway, a special women’s stock shaft (UST Recoil 480 X) and it’s available in 4-7 hybrids.

Which Pros Use Cobra Drivers?

Cobra has a smaller group of pros than other major brands, but they’ve done a good job of partnering with some of the most attention-getting golfers in the game today, including:

  • Bryson DeChambeau
  • Ricky Fowler
  • Jason Dufner
  • Lexi Thompson (LPGA)
