The modern golf equipment market is saturated with adjustable drivers. The key is to differentiate the adjustability factors as playability advantages versus simply cosmetic advancements.  Cobra has accomplished that with the Fly Z + driver. 

Almost every manufacturing company has developed adjustable weighting systems for their drivers and fairway woods. However, Cobra has achieved something special. The revolutionary Flip Zone weighting technology allows the player to enhance performance and playability factors. With the weight positioned toward the face of the club, ball speed is able to be increased for higher clubhead speed players. Conversely, with the weight positioned in the rear position, launch angle and playability factors are enhanced which may help golfers with slower swing speeds.

In addition to the movable CG (Center of Gravity) the Fly Z + offers several different loft options. Cobra refuses to stop at these valuable achievements. They proceed to introduce their newly revealed Speed Channel technologyThis, accompanied by the exclusively formulated E9 sweet zone shape results in greater distance even on off center hits. 

The Fly Z + head not only offers playability/performance factors, it also offers aesthetic values as well. Ranging from the carbon fiber crown and sole pieces to the wide array of color options, the Cobra Fly z + is a real stunner. 


But looks aren't everything. An important component of driver playability and performance is the shaft. And since many golfers do not have the luxury of having a professional fitting, the stock shaft available in modern drivers proves to be an important aspect to the clubs performance for the average consumer.

All club manufacturers have proprietary shafts made by reputable shaft companies. However, some of these proprietary shafts are more useful as fire pokers rather than golf shafts. You won't want to immediately yank the stock shaft offered in the Fly Z + before putting it through its paces. The Fly Z + comes with a Matrix VLCT shaft, which is available in regular flex (65g), stiff flex (65g), and x flex (70g) options.

In addition to the quality stock Matrix VLCT shaft, Cobra offers several upgraded shafts at no additional charge by placing your order via www.cobragolf.co m. These free upgradable shafts include the Aldila Tour Blue 75, Aldila Tour Green 65, and the Matrix White Tie 55X4. Whatever shaft you chose you are promised a quality golf club. Cobra is not trying to be the most popular driver, they are simply trying to be the best driver, and that is commendable.
