The Cobra S3 Driver is the replacement for the previous S2 model and features Cobra's latest E9 Face Technology.
The E9 Technology has created a taller, elliptical shaped face that Cobra claims mirrors the impact patterns to increase ball speed where golfers hit most often. The clubface essentially has created a 30% larger sweet spot that favours shots from the bottom of the heel to the top of the toe.
In our tests, we felt the Cobra S3 felt more forgiving, especially off the inside of the club, than it's predecessor the S2 model and looked comfortable behind the ball at address.
The club looks great and will appeal to almost all levels of golfers. The head is rounded but does not look as skewed or stretched as some modern drivers do and the sound and feel of the Cobra S3 Driver were both very solid and just what you would expect from a top quality driver.
The adjustable hosel rotates through 3 positions which is a little limiting as other drivers offer more face angle options. However if you go for the 8.5 degree version be aware that it is 1.5 degrees more open than the other lofts and the ‘closed’ position is actually 0 degrees square.
A nice upgrade from Cobra and one for the list of drivers to try if you're in the market for a new long game weapon.
